Local police want newly approved stun guns, but balk at price

Nov 26, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: PhillyBurbs.com

Although state officials are now allowing police officers to use certain electroshock weapons, many departments in Burlington County are not rushing out to get them just yet, even though they've wanted the tools for a long time.

This is a shame,that this department want's these newly approved non-leathel weapons. Yes non-leathel. And yet they arent able to purchase based on the high price of said item. To the Cheif of Police of this department,please vist my sight at, www.personalsecuritycompany.com and feel free to look around at what I have to offer. You can also contact me directly and we can see if I can work it out to be able to meet your needs at a cost that will fit your budget. Looking forward to speaking with you.

To Hell with stun guns,give states the right to reinstate the death penalty in every state and stop wasting tax payers money on death row criminals sitting around in cells for years awaitng to be executed for a crime they did.Get rid of these Lefties who don't care about the victims rights.Want to give the Cops a real weapon they all should carry, any means to bring down a criminal,heavy duty zap once hit you quit stungun,heavy duty weapons that kill people with one shot,when a serious criminal takes on any law inforcement,once hit they quit.Put the fear of God into law inforcement again.Just might stop future young tough guys something to fear and do something alittle less dangerous for a living.

No, but bare arms are wildly evident, especially in the inner-city section of Ocean City where the culture has so many trapped in poverty.

Simple,vote out the idiots who are doing their best to make you helpless,and a target for crimnals.You have a right to protect yourself,criminals just love Liberal politicans,why because they are doing their best to make you a victim,so they can make you more dependant on them to protct you,which they can't...Stripping you of your Constitutional rights is what Liberals are all about these days.You see ,an armed citizentry puts fear in Libersls heart,or mind,because the baby killing Left hasn't a beating heart...Making you believe they {Liberals}have the answer to our ills is a lie....Just look at the biggest LIAR occuping the White House,he feels your pain,not right now though,he's on vacation or playing gulf or watching a basketball game....Maybe even a secret party at the White House...
While we are suffering with high gasoline prices,people loosing their homes ,and jobs,high taxes,high energy bills to heat their homes.Our Elitest Obama lives the easy life....How nice while the rest of us injoy His Hope of transforming America into a socialist country and no Change.......

Hey Bill, I'm sure they would love to contact you about the product you offer,but before they purchase such equipment they will probably want the owner to be able to spell Lethal correctly. Since you specialize in non-lethal equipment, one would assume you've actually typed it enough times to get it right.

A trap that they created on their own!!!!!!!!.These fools won't play by the rules and get educated ,and then want society to pay their way BS...Then you have a Party constantly drumming how they are victims of racism and how unfair our society is.Poor people in America are better off then most other countries.We feed,house,cloth,they party on the food stamp money intended for their children.They bring into the world more mouths to feed because life is one big party...All the while they are resentful towards those who followed the rules and made something out of their lives.Then you have an administration who says don't get educated,don't play by the rules,because we will just rob peter to pay paul.....And all that does is make paul a sore peter.....

That's too bad. Are the older stun guns no good, or something? I suppose having the latest and greatest equipment for your job is great, but can't they work with what they have and save up for the newer stuff in the future? I mean, if what they already have is just as affective then there's no harm in continuing to use those is there? Or is there a shortage? Were they in the midst of restocking and decided since a new model was approved they'd get that, but find them too pricey? Shouldn't these companies be able to make these defensive non-lethal weapons in a manner that should be affordable to even the most modest of police dept budgets, but still just as useful as this newly approved model? I mean a cheaper one may be clunkier, or harder to conceal, or maybe they aren't as durable and won't last for as long as a more expensive one, but it should still be just as effective when used... rather I think it should. Whatever, if they can't afford it they can't afford it. They should work on how they can increase their budget for next time.
