LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With an epidemic of iPhone thefts, known as "Apple picking," sweeping the country, particularly in New York, owning a smartphone has never been more dangerous. Today, at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Yellow Jacket, LLC (www.yellowjacketcase.com), creators of the world's first stun gun smartphone case, announced the launch of a Change.org petition urging New York lawmakers to reclassify stun guns in their state as personal protection devices.
The NYPD recently made public that there were 16,000 Apple-picking thefts in 2012, equating to 14 percent of the total crime in the city. In addition, 45 percent of all 2013 robberies in the city involved cell phones, with more than half involving iPhones. By making stun guns legal in the state of New York, smartphone users can gain a sense of security while having access to a safe and effective means of protection.
"We created the first Yellow Jacket case after our own experience with robbery," said Sean Simone, CEO of Yellow Jacket, LLC. "With the emergence of 'Apple picking' in the New York area we felt that it was time for us to take a stand on behalf of the state's constituents. We hope by launching this Change.org petition, a law will go into effect allowing the use of stun guns in the state for residents to further protect themselves."
Stun guns offer two layers of protection; it is a close proximity device that uses high-voltage electricity to stop an attacker by momentarily disabling the muscle control, while the electrical crackling can deter an attack before it happens. Considered safer than tasers which have been known to cause permanent injury, a stun gun, as featured in the Yellow Jacket, was designed with safety in mind.
Yellow Jacket is exhibiting its latest Yellow Jacket™ for iPhone 5/5S model at CES 2014, at Booth #6832, located in the North Hall, iLounge Pavilion.
