    With non-lethal weapon manufacturers such as TASER International constantly finding new and insidious ways to incapacitate "non-compliant individuals," it's only natural that those folks who have frequent encounters with stun gun-toting authorities would want protection from their piercing, electrifying barbs. Well a gentleman from Arizona named Gregory Russell Schultz apparently empathizes with this demographic, and has filed a patent for an "energy weapon protection device" -- essentially a jacket embedded with alternating layers of conductive and non-conductive panels that complete an electrical circuit and leave the wearer impervious to the shocks of what would likely be a very surprised officer of the law. If they can retrofit our Members Only jacket in this manner, we're sold.

    Yeah that will work great when the cop drops the taser and pulls the gun.

    ... Knowing myself, and how law abiding I am, if a cop ever tases me, it will be unjustified, and I will be drawing my weapon to protect myself as he is trying to tase me.

    Sounds like you need to study the use of force continuem. You CAN NOT use lethal force on something you know to be non-lethal.

    the issue is that the instant they pull a taser, they are willing to use force, if the taser doesn't work, they are going to go for the gun, and at that point, you REALLY are in fear of your life (unless they are an average cop, in which case, just walk away while they can't hit you :rofl:)

    That's all assuming you are NOT complying and resisting. If you simply calm the fuck down and comply there is no need to ride the lightning....let alone take a bullet.

    Rule #1:
    DON'T BE DUMB!!!!

    Better to go down fighting tyranny than to let it happen?

    Yes. Because no cop has ever abused the use of the taser. Ever. In the history of tasers. Hasn't happened, and will never happen.

    Incorrect, in Texas, you CAN use deadly force to protect against BODILY HARM.

    I can hit someone in the face with a Taser.
    No problem.
    Ours have laser sights.

    BTW I imagine it would be a probation/parole violation as well as a crime for a convicted felon to own one a'la Kevlar vests.

    But in any case this is all speculation and bullshit, since the chances of anyone actually buying that jacket, and then being tased while wearing it, are, well, beyond not happening.

    A better option is just wearing a thick jacket like Carhart around. But then you would need the pants too. That thing will never sell.
