These days, everyone needs a self-defense plan. Being physically fit is a great first step to being able to defend yourself, but you should also carry and know how to use self-defense devices if you are afraid for your safety. A couple of such devices you can carry are stun guns and tasers. While stun guns need to be pressed to the attacker’s body in order to be used, taser can be used up close or from a distance and often come with more features than stun guns. It is important to know the laws before using either.
- There seems to be some confusion about just what a Taser is, who should use it, and how or when it should be used.
- Tasers, on the other hand, actually project two small metal hooks attached by extremely thin conductive wire to emit an electrical charge.
- Tasers are used to disrupt muscle activity and thus incapacitate the target while the charge is active.
