N.J. rules too tight for stun gun use

Glouscester County Times

GLOUCESTER COUNTY, N.J. — Though New Jersey has become the last state in the country to authorize the use of stun guns by police, it may also have become the state where it's most difficult for a stun gun to be used.

Presumably, a stun gun is a tool that allows a law enforcement officer to subdue a dangerous person with far less harm that a bullet could cause. Yet, the policy issued by state Attorney General Anne Milgram this week is so cumbersome that a police officer caught in a do-or-die situation might find it easier to resort to his service revolver than to run down a checklist of stun-gun rules.
