Massachusetts State Police will now carry tasers

Nearly 900 tasers are on their way to the Massachusetts State Police.

Until now, only troopers on a special operations team carried the stun guns.

Now all troopers will have them.

State Police say troopers getting the tasers have been trained to use them against violent suspects in threatening situations.
