What Is A TASER Gun?

TASER International, Inc. is the only company that manufactures TASERs. Their products are the only ones bearing the TASER trademark. TASERs are non-lethal weapons that use harmless electrical shocks to disrupt the target’s nervous system. While being shocked, the target has no control over his skeletal muscles and simply falls down.

How To Use A TASER

TASERs are designed to be used in three distinct ways.

Once the air cartridge is triggered it is a simple matter to click a button, remove the used cartridge, then plug in a fresh one, all within a couple of seconds. TASERs provide the diversity of both long-distance protection and close quarters defense.

How TASERs Work

The front of the TASER holds a replaceable air cartridge powered by compressed inert gas (nitrogen). When triggered, the TASER fires a pair of barbed metal probes which are attached to the unit by 15-foot long insulated wires which are highly conductive. The device delivers a 50,000 volt shock which is capable of penetrating up to a cumulative two inches of clothing.

The pulsing, high voltage electrical charges sent by the weapon are similar to the normal electrical signals in the body’s nerve fibers and literally overpower them. These additional electrical pulses function like jamming a radio or telephone signal. As long as the extra “noise” or static is on the line, normal service is interrupted. Once the jamming signal is stopped, normal activity resumes and no damage has been done.

Think of the human nervous system as the command, control, and communication systems of the human body. The nervous system is comprised of three elements:

TASERs do not rely on pain to achieve compliance. They affect the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system and achieve complete incapacitation.
