Dear Senator Winfield, Representative Stafstrom, Distinguished Members of the Judiciary Committee,
I strongly urge you to oppose Committee Bill. 6355. Currently, the risk warrant is available to anyone at any time with police arriving immediately. It makes no sense for someone to wait till the courthouse opens to file for an “extreme risk” warrant, if someone is so concerned that someone is at “extreme risk” they should act immediately, not the next business day. Do not pass feel good legislation that has no evidence to support it. Oppose Committee Bill 6355.
I strongly urge you to support Committee Bill 6491 An Act Concerning Nonlethal Electronic Defense Weapons. The right of self-defense applies to all devices and weapons in common use. There is no reason why “stun guns” should be illegal.
