America: Where Our Weapons Come in Fashion Colors

It’s little! It’s pink! It fits in your handbag! It's the new designer Taser!

Could we take semi-lethal electroshock any less seriously? It looks like you could use it to shave your legs or curl your eyelashes.

I know people have saved their own lives by using a Taser. But mass-marketing them in pastel pink is just not the way to go.

I hope something a little better-thought-out comes out of CES this week.

Edited to add: this is NOT what I was hoping for, Peter.

Well, of course. I'm not going to attack someone if I can't look good doing it!
