They buried Carlos Owen, Harley Chisholm III, and Charles Bennett last month. The three Birmingham, Ala., police officers were serving an arrest warrant in one of the city's blighted neighborhoods when they were shot and killed. And the incident has left people in that conservative, gun-owning part of the country wondering whether maybe some weapons shouldn't be so widely available.

The .45-caliber bullet is still lodged in Mia Adgerson's rib cage, close to her heart. For the rest of her life, she will carry it around — a permanent reminder of how close she came to being killed by a bullet intended for someone else.

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — When brothers Tom and Rick Smith launched Taser International Inc. in 1993, their target customer was their mother — someone looking for personal protection but not a firearm. When consumer stun gun sales failed to take off in the 1990s, the Smiths turned to another surefire market: law enforcement. The move proved to be a winner for the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company.
