Stun Gun is becoming extensively popular among the public as the best weapon for personal protection and safety

Stun guns have only been on the market for more than two years. Police use stun guns regularly, and they have had great success with them in that time. However, law enforcement wasn't utilizing Nova Stun Guns back then, and they're just weren't a lot of companies who went ahead and went out of business because there weren't as many people who wanted to carry a portable self-defense device around like they do today.

 

Stun guns are actually an electrical self-defense device that sends out an extremely high voltage (high shock) and low amperage electric shock to an attacker, causing extreme pain and discomfort. They work because they are designed to quickly and easily disorient and distract an attacker long enough for one to getaway. They work by sending out the extremely high voltage in a very quick burst, and their incredibly high frequency means that it can be felt from a far distance. The attacker is knocked down, confused, or even scared enough to let go.

 

Although this technology has been around for a long time, it hasn't really been developed into something portable until recently. Originally, stun guns were all done with the use of electrodes that were stuck directly onto the attacker's skin. These electrodes were connected to a control box that contained a charge controller. The power then would be turned on and it would take effect almost immediately upon contact. There was a very short amount of time in which the attacker would not feel a thing at all. However, this is obviously a much more serious issue than one might think. Electrodes could get quite messy and the problem of portability is a real one. That is why today's stun gun technology has evolved to where the actual weapon itself is completely portable and it doesn't even need to have an electrical discharge to work.

 

Since Tasers are clearly considered to be more of a non-lethal type of electronic defense device, it makes sense to ban the sale and possession of stun guns as well. The problem with that is that most people will never even know that such a thing exists. So, while the mere fact that someone may have a Taser doesn't mean that they have a stun gun, the fact that both of those things can happen at the same time is extremely dangerous. That is especially true in a society where there seems to be an ongoing rise in crime. Finally, there is the issue of stun guns being used as a form of animal repulsion. Studies have shown that the amount of time that a Taser stun gun has been on somebody is largely irrelevant when it comes to their ability to incapacitate an animal. It seems to be that stun guns in any way are merely sending out electrical pulses in a very general area. Therefore, it doesn't matter how long that person is within the area of the stimulation. They are still going to be subject to the effects of the stun gun.
