LANSING, Mich. — Some Michigan residents could soon be allowed to arm themselves with a Taser to temporarily incapacitate would-be attackers.

After making some minor changes, the state House on Thursday passed a package of Senate bills authorizing individuals who have a concealed pistol license to carry a Taser for personal protection.

The legislation would allow licensed Michiganians to buy and carry a single-shot consumer-grade Taser that fires two dart-like electrodes up to 15 feet.
