    Well I can think of better tools to arm our teachers with, but this is better than wasp spray or a bucket of rocks, both of which have been issued recently.

    I would think taking a taser to a gun fight is stupider then taking a knife.

    And if I was a teacher, I might consider tasering some of these little brats where I wouldn't even think about shooting them.
    (Well..... Maybe I would THINK about it.... but I know I wouldn't DO it.}

    Moderately concerned with tasers being used as defense against a shooter anyways, considering I recall a definition or description for a taser as “electro-muscular-disruption” meaning the target is no longer in control of the muscles in their body, my concern is particularly the hand. Where it is entirely possible for the muscles closing the hand to overpower the muscles opening the hand. Who becomes liable when target discharges a round while being tasered? On top of that as Michigan law is currently written — sidetrack to google I see on May 8th 2012 bill signed by Snyder people with a cpl can own one? Carry and use follow same limitations as cpl and is regarded as a handgun? However the MCL 750.224a still lists that only law enforcement / similar may own or carry, but otherwise not legal for regular citizens of Michigan to own. (Insert an I missed something expression) Thus many online vendors regard Michigan as off limits, limiting where our regular citizen teachers will acquire tasers.. further only those trained in its use may be authorized to carry one, which typically involves getting tasered for “educational purposes” ...

    While curious to see how this is regarded from the education community, I do see some ways this can go wrong.

    Section 2b says "The possession and reasonable use of a device that uses electro-muscular disruption technology by an individual who holds a valid license to carry a concealed pistol under section 5b of 1927 PA 372, MCL 28.425, and who has been trained under subsection (5) in the use, effects, and risks of the device."

    I missed that jump from 2a it’s a bit easy to get lost in all the split forks when someone keeps talking to you while you’re reading
