Hellinahandbasket is a blog run by a bloke who runs in his spare time a charity for the victims of violent crime. He teaches them to avoid repeating the experience primarily by shooting their aggressor several times. Most of those he helps are dirt poor and living in fear. It is creditable work. Anyway he also offers advice on using something less lethal than a 12 Bore or a .357. In Not Really Stunned he's skeptical about the Taser. He links to an amusing vid of a nerd getting Tasered here. A reader comments: Sounds like a nice way to pass the evening. But if you were on the other end would it have got your gander up?
