Question: Are taser guns legal?

Answer: This is a very common question that is asked regarding tasers. The laws vary by state and even municipalities within states. We recommend referring to our page on Laws and Restrictions on our web page.

Question: What is a taser Gun?

Answer: A taser gun has a trigger that when pulled, fires probes that can deliver a pulse that incapacitate and override a person’s sensory and motor functions. It disrupts the nervous system and stops even the most aggressive of threats.

Taser guns are a gun-like electrical self-defense device. Like a gun it contains a handle and trigger. Upon firing, compressed nitrogen projects two Taser probes 15 feet at a speed of 100-135 feet per second. An electrical signal transmits throughout the region where the probes make contact with the body or clothing.

Question: What are tasers?

Answer: Tasers, short for Thomas A. Swift Electric Rifle, are Electronic Control Devices that are generally considered non-lethal and can be legally carried in most states in the U.S.

Question: Who invented tasers?

Answer: tasers and other types of electroninc control devices have been in use for many years. The development of the taser as in use today in law enforcement, has been attributed to Jack Cover in 1974.

Question: What do tasers do to the body?

Answer: The result of a taser gun shot is an instant loss of the attackers neuromuscular control and any ability to perform coordinated action. Plus, an added power bursts from the device ensures that the nervous system of the target does not recover instantly to allow him to remove the probes. The follow-on bursts disrupt the process of re-equilibration of the nervous system. While the target is disabled, the user can place the device on the ground and escape.

When it comes to self-defense weapons, there really is none better. In fact, they are one of the most used self-defense devices by law enforcement.

Firstly, taser guns have both long and short range. With a taser gun, you can shoot an attacker form a distance. However, if the attacker comes in at close range, you can still use the taser gun as a stun gun.

Taser guns also hold a 95% efficiency rating, which is even better than firearms.

If there were any negatives to this weapon, it would probably be the price. However, a taser gun will probably run cheaper than your average hand gun. Plus, you can get one in most areas without a hand gun license.

Question: Do tasers leave any long term effect?

Answer: Studies have shown that taser devices in and of them self's cause no long term effects in fact "a January 1987 Annals of Emergency Medicine study reported that similar taser technology leaves no long-term injuries compared with 50% long term injuries for gunshot injuries."

When a taser hits a person they lose control of all neuromuscular abilities momentarily dropping them to the ground and leaves them feeling dazed for a few seconds, however recovery takes place the moment the pulses stop.

Question: Can a taser kill?

Answer: The answer is: "not really". Emergency medicine researchers at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine (in conjunction with researchers from Louisiana State University, University Medical Center in Nevada, and Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia) studied nearly 1,000 cases of taser guns use throughout the United States. They released their findings in 2007 at the American College of Emergency Physicians' Research Forum.

They showed that there were either no injuries or only mild injuries, such as scrapes and bruises, in the majority of the cases (99.7%) of TASER use. Although there were two incidents of head injuries (associated with falls) and even one case in which the person was hospitalized with a condition "of unclear relationship to the TASER", these three findings were an extremely small percentage of the total number in the study.

 It should be noted that if someone has a weak heart or is on cardiac medication and also receives a taser hit to the chest it is possible that in 1 in 100,000 cases this can be fatal. This number is low considering how many lives are saved using a taser rather than a handgun in a law enforcement situation.

 Furthermore, it must be taken into account that ANY weapon, used the wrong way, can kill somebody. Be it a baseball bat, a flower vase, or a pencil. Many more criminals have died as the result of being attacked by the defender with shotguns and knives, regardless of the presence or absence of medical problems. In the worst case scenario, a taser is a less lethal way of protecting yourself, your family...and the criminal himself.

Question: What are the benefits of a taser?

 Answer: Tasers  allow you to defend yourself at a relatively safer distance from an attacker compared to the more common batons, pepper sprays and the empty hand technique. The two probes attached to 15-ft conductive wires through which energy is sent can penetrate the clothing of the perpetrator up to two inches thick and stop attackers before they can even come close. Moreover, tasers are seen to have had a hand in the decline of suspects, police officers and civilian injury and fatality rates during dangerous situations.

Individuals who want to take control of their safety can depend on a taser as it is effective and easy to use. A taser can be handy in situations that necessitate one to quickly employ self-defense.

Question: Do tasers work through clothing?

 Answer: As noted above the probes from the taser will penetrate clothing up to two inches thick.


Question: What is the difference between a taser and a stun gun?

Answer: A stun gun is an electrical self-defense device that uses high voltage to stop an attacker. Touching a person with the prongs on the stun gun quickly immobilizes the attacker. However, because the amperage is very low, no serious or permanent injury is inflicted.

Stun guns do not have any far range capabilities. A person has to be with arm’s length in order to be able to use it. However, if someone were to grab you and try to take something from you or force you into a car it is excellent.

A taser gives you he added benefit of being able to “strike” someone at a distance of up to 15 feet.

Question:  How do I choose?

Answer: When it comes to overall capability and overall effectiveness, the winner would have to be the taser gun. But don't put stun guns down for the count, for a fraction of the cost of a taser, stun guns are self-defense weapons with a proven track record for putting bad guys down for the count. In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with either one

Question: Are tasers better than handguns?

Answer: There are actually many advantages depending on how you think about this. A hand gun is lethal and a taser is non-lethal. So if you are in a situation that you need lethal force a taser will not get the job done. So many situations however do not require lethal force to end the conflict. Disabling an attacker and allowing you to get away to safety and call law enforcement is what is needed. Even if handgun use is completely justified  lethal force you will most likely also end up defending that right in a court of law, and possibly face potential civil action from the assailants family. This can be avoided with the use of non-lethal force.
