FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. - Taser International unveiled its first new stun gun since 2003 Monday, a device that can shock three people without reloading.

Older Taser models, in use by 14,200 law enforcement agencies throughout the country, have to be reloaded after one shot, which can be a problem for an officer who has missed a target or has more than one suspect to subdue.

I don't know about you, but I think this would be completely out of control here in Spokane. The subtitle should read "new stun gun can now fire three times at the same subject without reloading." I suppose it is slightly better than shooting the perp four more times after he has been shot and downed by one bullet. Why not make sure and plug him four more times. On second thought, maybe this won't work in Spokane after all.
