2016 was huge for TASER Self-Defense. We kicked off in January with the release of our most-popular device to date and ended the Holiday season giving back to an impactful cause. Before we set our sights on what 2017 has to offer, here’s a look back at some highlights from the past 365 (356, to be exact) days.
Hitting the ground running, we shook up the self-defense market with the release of the most sophisticated civilian self-defense tool on the market; the TASER Pulse. Showcased in January at SHOT Show – the largest firearms expo in the world – it’s explosive demand immediately placed it on back-order. Don’t fear, though…you can pick up your own TASER Pulse here.
TASER in the Courtroom
With a slew of outstanding lawsuits fighting against TASER bans around the United States, we continue to inch closer to nationwide legality of conductive electronic weapons (CEWs). Current stun gun and CEW bans are in violation of the 2nd Amendment, and therefore unconstitutional. Many of the areas pushing to axe the bans, in-fact, are gun-friendly – adding fuel to the fire for second amendment activists. Areas currently fighting TASER bans include:
- New Jersey
- New York
- New Orleans

Georgia Colleges Strengthen Their Self-Protection Plans
On the topic of TASER victories, our devices are now legal to own and carry at all University System of Georgia institutions – including dorms and classrooms. Dubbed “campus carry lite” it came as a compromise for Second Amendment proponents following several armed robbery cases on Georgia campuses.

C2 Gets a Makeover
The C2, one of our signature self-defense models, got a facelift in 2016 – re-naming it the Bolt and coming in only black. Lightweight, discrete, but still packs the same punch trusted by law enforcement around the world. Learn more about the Bolt here.
Season of Giving
Rounding-off our most-successful year yet, we wanted to give back for the Holidays – especially to a cause we value and is right here at home in Arizona. From December 12th to December 26th, we are donating $100 for every 5 TASER Pulses purchased. The money will be donated to Sojourner Center, a shelter in Phoenix that supports victims of domestic violence and their children.
We’re looking to SMASH our donation goal of $2,000, with over $1,700 raised so far!
Give a loved one the added protection of a TASER Pulse while supporting our community.
