When Sawyer and Kate are back in their cages he told her how he sized up the opposition.  He also said something like "Oh, and FYI, those zapper things have a safety on them."  He's a noticer and he definitely noticed that.

on that note, my next theory is that is that the Others are captured immortal, day-walking vampires and the island is the only prison that could contain them indefinitely. Dharma was set up to study them to develop immortality for humans...it explains EVERYTHING! Think about it... ;D
Wow... it makes total sense!!!

if this was SG-1...

It would be foolish for them to carry loaded, automatic rifles in a "chain gang" environment.  When Sawyer kisses Kate, you see Pickett grab the rifle from where it was laying on the table.  A secure work environment would have tasers* with safety switches and rifles for which the ammo is separately stored.  Think about Cool Hand Luke, when a single round was loaded into the empty rifle for the Man-with-no-eyes to shoot the snake out of Luke's hand.



* The Taser company really hates it when you use their trademarked name as a generic term for Non-lethal Weapons, especially if you use it as a verb.

Never ever underestimate the observations of reading peolelikeacon man.His one statement about Juliet was very very insightful changed my outlook on her being somewhat disident whe he told kate she would have shot you.

If they catch you do they Taser you?

It is not foolish to carry them, but very foolish to leave them on the table.  This probably is a clue that these folks have no military experience.
