Katherine Murrie, left, Mary Hussmann, right, and other members of the group People for a Taser-Free Columbia present a petition to ban all "conducted energy devices," including Tasers, to City Clerk Sheela Amin on Wednesday. If the petition is found to contain more than 3,667 signatures, it will be presented to the Colubia City Council. "This allows citizens, who have been voiceless in the whole process, to get their day in democracy," Murrie said.
