Safety & Responsibility of Using TASER® C2
SAFETY -- The TASER® C2 can stop a threat up to 15 feet away (4.5 meters), allowing you a safe distance to protect yourself and family from an attacker. If a close quarter defense is warranted, the C2 doubles as a contact stun device to repel someone as a powerful and unexpected backup capability. TASER® technology has proven itself as a safe and effective choice of self-defense with over 500,000 worldwide users.
EFFECTIVE -- A TASER® C2 can be conveniently discharged to work anywhere on the body, unlike other conventional weapons with a specified target area. This makes the TASER® C2 more effective self-defense option by making it easier to stop a threat under an already stressful situation. TASER® devices have been used effectively by law enforcement encounters by over 10,000 police agencies in over 4 countries, boasting a 95% effective rating. TASER® technology provides one of the only non-lethal means of stopping an attacker dead in his tracks, even if under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
RESPONSIBILITY -- Normal law-abiding citizens carrying a TASER® C2 for self-defense purposes should have no problem acquiring this highly effective tool. However, to further promote responsible ownership, the TASER® C2 will only function after the owner completes a background check through the manufacturer to prevent misuse. As always, purchasers MUST be 18 years old or older.
TASER® C2 cartridges also have a unique serial number and are equipped with an Anti-Felon Identification system, which discharges 20-30 serialized paper tags when deployed. Law enforcement can later retrieve this confetti from the scene and contact TASER® International to get the name of the owner of the TASER® device, allowing police to track any potential misuse.
