Taser to Sell Tasing Shotgun Shell

All we are saying/Is give potentially lethal shots to the head with an electronic shotgun shell a chance

Taser is one of our least favorite companies — they make weapons and then deny their lethality — but at least they keep some of our boys in blue safe and offer another way of stopping folks without putting a bullet in their leg.

They’re announcing a new product, XREP, which is an electronic shotgun shell what apparently works just like a mini Taser. No real info yet, but they describe it thus:

On July 9, 2007, TASER International will introduce the world’s first wireless TASER® device, the new eXtended Range Electronic Projectile, or XREP. Launched from a standard 12-gauge shotgun, the XREP delivers TASER Neuro-Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) in a self-contained projectile system weighing only half an ounce.
