I wonder if the State of Rhode Island will appeal the ruling against their stun gun law.

I doubt it, since the Supreme Court already ruled 9-0 that another state's (MA?) ban on electronic stun guns was unconstitutional.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own craven apathy; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the valor of those better than themselves. Gary L. Griffiths (Paraphrasing John Stuart Mill)
