(2014-03-12) USA – TASER Press Release: TASER Announces Multiple Orders of Smart Weapons [[taser rollout // TASR-AAXN // corporate spin]]

There is also a list of TASER’s current overseas branches, in France, Germany, Brazil, Spain and the UK, as well as their social media links (well-developed IT use!).
