Taser Usage Up
In a story that we wrote well over a year ago about why Tasers Are So Good we explain how they work. “The Taser fires two dart like electrodes, for civilians up to 15 feet away, for law enforcement nearly 35 feet. The barbs are designed to penetrate clothing and prevent removal once in place. The new shaped pulse technology interrupts the ability of the brain to control the muscles creating an immediate and unavoidable incapacitation that has been proven time and time again to be nearly 100% effective. The range of the Taser allows the user to defend himself in a nonlethal manner from a safer distance than most other self-defense products.”
Tasers are used by over 17,000 law enforcement agencies and currently at least 15 countries worldwide. They are the premier nonlethal self-defense product in a law enforcement officer’s arsenal of tools.
Today we will share with you some information about Tasers and some recent stories about Taser guns.
