British Police have been given the go-ahead to use Taser stun guns against children. The relaxing of restrictions on the use of the weapons comes despite warnings that they could trigger a heart attack in youngsters. Would this be something we would want to see here in the U.S. being practised more often?

The number one question should be " Will this prevent possibly having to use deadly force on the youngster?" I mean studies have shown that a handgun does sometimes have adverse results when used on a perp. Personally, I would like to have the option of using the tazer on a juvenile if it will prevent me from possibly having to shoot him.

I think it also depends on the definitionm of children. I have seen a 6'2" 250 pound 15 year old before. So, I guess it just depends.
