    States are passing laws against torture. For example using a taser on your kid for wrapping around a phone pole would be classified as torture.

    However, in michigan we have the torture law, and their is a movement to pass a law that would let ccw holders carry a taser instead of a gun. Would the use of a taser actually be going against the torture laws?

    Im just curious because it just feels like "lets get everyon to carry a taser, and then do a few cases where tasers are the only thing allowed, then wait a year to ban tasers again....on grounds there sadistic devices designed for torturing drug dealers"
