Tasers are an ideal self-protection device which is non-lethal. You can use those to defend yourself in an emergency condition. A Taser is simple to hide and when you want it, all you have to do is deploy the switch and aim it at a would-be assailant and the would-be assailant will be temporarily disabled and unable to pursue and harm you. As the would-be assailant is disabled you can readily make your escape. Then contact the proper authorities to get help. The person is going to be unharmed but not able to utilize their muscles for a short period of time.
