Student senators voted 29-5 to approve the resolution. The M-26 Advanced Air Taser, which is proposed to be used, shoots two probes into the subject, causing debilitation through loss of neuromuscular control. The probes can travel up to 21 feet. Each Taser costs $400, and 18 would be needed, said David Zarifis, director of public safety. The resolution now goes to the Iowa Board of Regents for consideration.
