What happens when you get Tasered?  

More people than ever before, both in the police force and as civilians, have been using Tasers for personal protection. Many people know that it is legal for private individuals to own Tasers and some people have even experienced having a Taser used on them. Tasers are an ideal choice for personal safety as well as personal defense reasons. Knowing how stun guns and Tasers work is very beneficial to anyone who considers carrying one.           

Law enforcement officers in every state use Tasers as an alternative to deadly handguns. There are approximately 250,000 officers and 130,000 U.S. citizens that carry Tasers. Compared to stun guns that require the gun to make contact with skin or clothing to inflict pain, a Taser can incapacitate an assailant from about 20 feet away.

So just how does a Taser gun work?

Tasers and stun guns are two of many electronic control devices or ECDs that are considered non-lethal weapons. They are legal to carry in nearly all 50 states. (Be sure you check the laws in your state before you purchase a Taser.) But how do Tasers work? Tasers are equipped with a trigger that will fire probes into the assailant, they can deliver a powerful pulse of electrical charge into a human body thus rendering them incapacitated and giving you an opportunity to get away if you are being attacked. They use a technology referred to as Neuro Muscular Incapacitation or NMI that will disrupt the nervous system of the assailant and stop their actions in their steps. Civilians, as well as persons in law enforcement, can safely use a Taser.

How Many Different Types of Taser Models Are There?

There are three Taser models: The Bolt, the Pulse, and the X2.  Tasers are the ideal thing for a law officer to have in hand when pursuing any suspect. An X26 Taser is a law enforcement model that can take someone down readily and with integrated Digital Power, it can also have upgrades done on the software. Law enforcement officers utilize them by staying a relatively safe distance from perpetrators. This helps to keep them safe and avoid hand to hand combat situations. The probes that are attached to the Taser offer up to 15 feet of conductive wire that allow for plenty of safety. Energy is sent through the probes to the assailant and he or she is rendered helpless before the officer approaches them. While the risks of being Tasered include injuries from the barbed dart or from a possible fall, this is still a more favorable outcome than being fired upon by a handgun.

Bolt and Pulse are personal protection devices and designed to create personal safety whenever they are utilized. With a 30 second charge, they allow the user enough time to escape from a would-be attacker after they've deployed the Taser. When you know how Tasers work you will realize they are excellent for preventing any civilian injury or fatalities if you encounter any dangerous situations. You can confidently rely upon a Taser as it is very effective and easy to use on anyone. It's handy and an excellent form of self-defense as well as being lightweight and easy to carry in a purse or pocket. Once you know how Tasers work, you will realize it's a valuable tool to prevent anyone from becoming a victim.

What Does It Feel Like To Be Hit By A Taser?

The result of the electrical impulse that travels through thin wires to two 9-millimeter barbs can be felt as a “charlie horse” throughout the entire body. The barbs from the Taser are specifically constructed to sink into the clothing or skin so they cannot come out. Sometimes they are so deeply embedded they can only be removed by a doctor.

What Are Taser Effects On The Heart? 

There is still controversy regarding sudden cardiac arrest after being subjected to a Taser. There are about a dozen reports that suggest a probable link to cardiac arrest death from at least three million Taser applications in the United States. Individuals that are associated with heart disease and drug use may be more at risk for sudden death but this has not been established clearly at this point.

What Kinds Of Injuries Can Be Expected From Using A Taser On Someone?

The potential harm from Tasers may come from the effects of the duration of the jolt and repeated Tasering.  There have been a few reports of injuries that may be related to Taser use, especially shots to the eye and reported seizures after Taser shots to the head. Research is ongoing on these issues. 

Some people may need to be treated for minor bodily injuries when they have been Tasered as they do tend to fall down. There may possibly be broken bones and there have been some reported cases of death from injuries to the head due to a fall caused by the Tasering. Usually, otherwise healthy people who have been sent to the hospital are discharged after a routine evaluation and the barb removal. People that do go to the hospital for removal of the barbs are reporting muscle aches, anxiety, and pain. There is also always a risk that the barbs may lodge in sensitive areas such as the genitals or the eyes.

What Are Some Things I Need To Remember When Using A Taser?

1. To learn how a Taser works practice operating it safely against a tree or fencepost using the Taser Target 

2. Keep them out of the reach of children.

3. You cannot put a Taser in your carry-on bag on an airplane but they can be placed in your checked bag on a domestic flight. Tasers cannot be shipped or transported out of the United States.
