N.J. Attorney General Suspends Use of Stun Gun
October 02, 2013
New Jersey's acting attorney general has told police agencies to stop using an approved stun gun after defects and failures were discovered during training sessions.
In a letter to law enforcement agencies, Attorney General John Hoffman said use of Karbon Arms' MPID stun gun has been suspended indefinitely. State police determined the device exposes officers to potential injury, reports The Star-Ledger.
Karbon Arms has asked the state for time to fix the problems with its device. The MPID was approved for use by former state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa on Sept. 26, 2012. It was intended as a cheaper alternative to TASER's X26 and X2 stun guns. New Jersey police agencies began using TASERS in 2011.

I am guessing he's not worried about the firearms since they too can kill the user if improperly handled.
