Call for a Moratorium of TASERS in the United States

Taser International, the largest maker of "Stun Guns" in the world, initially marketed the TASER as a NON- Lethal weapon for police use. This is an outrageous lie.

What's worse is that Taser International's Taser has killed over 500 Americans and their decision to keep selling to police will likely result in more deaths. Taser International has already many more orders for police departments across the United States.

Not everyone will be a victim of Taser's. Most recently,  scientific and medical evidence has proven that Tasers can be deadly toward those with epilepsy, pregnant women and those who suffer from heart conditions. These conditions cannot always be noticed at first. Many news reports and YouTube videos report that police are not using the Taser appropriately and that has resulted in serious injury or even death. Some Americans have been Tased for not signing a speeding ticket or having a mental health issue. These are situations where the use of deadly force is not required.

When Tasers were first introduced to Law Enforcement they were marketed as Non-Lethal alternative for police. American citizens are not Taser International's guinnea pigs. Our lives are in danger as a TASER is LETHAL and over 500 American Citizens have died at the hands of this deadly device. At some point, we've got to say enough is enough.

Please join me in telling Taser International, The State of Vermont and the United States Congress you're fed up. Sign my petition calling on Taser International CEO Rick Smith to stop manufacturing Tasers to police and the United States Congress to hold hearings about how deadly Tasers are to the American society.
