Now Your Taser Can Match Your Shoes!

Look, I can appreciate being a girl who sometimes walks around alone at night and could theoretically use protection. This is surely why both of my grandmothers have given me pepper spray keychains. But I draw the line at carrying around my own Taser. It's lovely that they come in multiple colors now (even pink!) but I just don't need one. Especially not for $300. Moreover, I don't want every soccer mom on the block equipped with her own pink Taser. As adorable as Veronica Mars was, I thought that even she whipped it out too often. (Her Taser, I mean.)

Anyone else think this is a really, really bad idea?

Update: I just realized there's an Times article about exactly the same topic in today's issue. In case you're interested.
