Neuman to sign Anne Arundel Taser law

Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman said Tuesday that she'll sign a bill legalizing the use of Tasers and stun guns in the county.

The County Council passed the bill on a 4-3 vote Monday night.

Previously, only police officers could use the devices in Anne Arundel.

In a statement, Neuman said she thinks Tasers are a "lawful option for self-protection" under the Second Amendment.

She also drew on her experience as a rape survivor, and said she hoped people might be able to use Tasers in self-defense.

"Unfortunately, for me and many others if you wake up in the middle of the night with a gun pointed at your right temple, neither a taser nor a gun will protect you," Neuman said.
