    Then what people say about us wearing tin-foil hats might really be true

    I have thought about the same thing myself. I used to fence - you know, sword fighting. Well, they have electric fencing where you basically have a shirt that has metal mesh on it so a connection can be established to register a hit. I wonder if an electric fencing shirt would protect against a taser.

    If you are within physical striking distance of a taser operator, you probably have larger concerns.

    The more serious threat is the wired projectile taser. Two projectiles on wires are propelled from the taser, penetrate your clothing, and hook under your skin like fish hooks. The taser operator can then immobilize you at a distance by electrifying the wired projectiles, completing the circuit.

    To counter this attack vector, I suspect the best approach would be to prevent penetration of the wired projectiles into your skin. I say this because from everything I have heard, your chances of pulling the projectiles out are very slim, first because once they have penetrated you, it is already too late, and second because they are in there good enough that unless you are willing to inflict some serious wounds on yourself by ripping them out, you aren't going to get them out in the heat of an exchange.

    I would think typical bullet resistant armor would prevent penetration in the first place. I'm sure you could test it. Armor and tasers are both legal to buy and own.

    Aluminum foil is a classic. LOL.

    Can't recall my periodic table but isn't copper a lot heavier than aluminum? Weight is a consideration.

    Excellent, that should do the job. It would short circuit out the tasers probes because it would have less resistance than skin and would have a shorter travel distance for the electricity.

    Something to consider : If a cop tases you and you don't drop he just might shoot you.

    I should also add that resistance is futile and this type of thing may cause an arms race of sorts between law enforcement and citizens. I'm pretty sure we know who will win that one.

    If any metal type clothing is worn, I imagine if some other force of electricity hits one like lightening, it would heat up and vaporize and could burn one very badly. Also one would make a great lightening rod.

    if you figure out how to mesh together some busted glass and can line that sucker w/ it, you'll make a killing selling to anyone who might ever have to run from the law...

    drug dealers, copper thieves, immigrants, etc.

    their sensors can't detect your body heat through glass btw.... that also goes for heat signatures (if you catch my drift, which you do if you should)...
    beats scrambling for a cedar tree or concrete pillar to hide behind.

    there is already a patent out.

    But I agree that it can cause more trouble than solve, also see this piece.

    I couple of friends And I were taking about this Friday.

    We thought it would be a great idea to manufacture anti taser clothing but too late

    Found this company that makes anti Taser Fabric.

    The idea is that the taser current goes through the conductive material and not through your skin. It's going to complete the circuit one way or another, so it's best to give it a past of least resistance that's not through your body.

    Just think of the physics problem of having two resistors in parallel. The current through the resistor with higher ohms is a lot less than the resistor with lower ohms; therefore, if you give it a metal path the majority of the current will go through the metal.

    I would like to see a system that would return the voltage back to the person that initiated it in the first place.

    Then someone like me who does not believe in violence would have protection against jerks that would use such weapons against us...

    I think that's the best idea.

    Wouldn't the metal heat up? It is conductive...for heat and electricity.

    If it has a lot of resistance to the flow. If it does not, it won't. Also, if the flow does not have enough resistance, you would overload the tazer and possibly make it melt or explode.

    What an awesome idea. Then when the cops figure out that the taser isn't working on you, they'll quickly switch to using the old-fashioned method of subduing people: perforating your body with fast-moving chunks of lead.

    A silly question then. What happens after the cop tries to taser you and you don't go down. Obviously he's attacking you so then what? Do you just beat the shit of him in self defense or tell him, hey if you shoot me in the arm, it will work, trust me.
