HOW DO TASERS WORK?

The Taser is a specialized stun gun, but unlike regular stun guns, can be used from up to 15 feet away.   When the weapon is discharged, compressed nitrogen fires 2 darts, each connected to 15 feet of very fine cable, to the target. These probes penetrate the subject’s clothing and sends 50,000 volts down the cables into the subject's body resulting in them dropping to the ground in a great deal of pain.

Due to the fact that the amperage is low, no long-term damage is done and the results are short-lived. A dangerous or out-of-control person is subdued without deadly force.  Tasers, like all stun weapons, utilize a high voltage, reduced amperage electric signal that, when fired, creates the full loss of neuromuscular control. This triggers an unmanageable tightening of the muscle mass, enabling the weapon to literally cripple a person no matter the mental state or pain tolerance.

An individual struck with a Taser will be stunned and dazed for a number of minutes. The pulsating electric current triggers uncontrollable muscle contractions and a feeling of vertigo and could temporarily render an attacker unconscious. Yet, the Taser's reduced electric amperage and the brief period of pulsating current guarantees a non-lethal charge. Furthermore, it does not trigger irreversible damages or long-lasting side effects on muscle mass, nerves or various other body functions. A January 1987 Record of Emergency Medicine research study reported TASER's modern technology leaves no long-term injuries compared to 50% long-term injuries for gunfire incidents.
