Anti-Taser Group To Send Petition
These devices, otherwise known as CED's include Tasers, stun guns and shock sticks. The group hopes to make use of these devices a Class-A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1000 fine.
Group member Mary Hussmann said in a news release the group had collected approximately 4000 signatures. If the petition contains 3,667 valid signatures, the proposal will be presented to the Columbia city council for a vote. If the measure is voted down, voters will decide its fate in the Nov. elections.
