What Are The After-Effects Of Taser?






     We are not really living in a crime-free world so we should be prepared to defend ourselves against people who want to take advantage of us.

It is best to learn some martial arts like kickboxing, karate or taekwondo so when someone walks up and tries to do us harm, we can easily launch a straight-up kick or an upper-cut that will knock the attacker down.

However, not all people have the time and means to learn martial arts so one best alternative is the use of taser gun.

What is taser?

You normally see it among police officers. They use this kind of gun to subdue fleeing and other crimes. It is a safer alternative to firearms because it does not use bullets. Instead, it uses electrical current that can disrupt voluntary control of muscles. Taser is fast becoming a popular self-defense weapon these days.

Many cities and states have already legalized the use of this weapon, still there are other places of the world that do not treat it as a legal tool. When you are planning to buy one for your own protection needs, it is advisable that you check first the rules of your city to make sure you can use it legally.

Another consideration before buying a stun gun or taser is to know how to use it. Here are some of the things that you should know about taser:

1. It is best to aim at the torso of the attacker at 10 or 15 feet away.

2. You will not be electrocuted even if you have direct contact with the tasered victim.

3. Avoid multiple shots because one shot is already enough to make the attacker weak and dazed.

Speaking of effects of this gun, another common inquiry of people interested in purchasing or possessing this kind of self-defense device is "what are the after-effects of taser". Here are some details to help you understand more:

1. Once tasered, the person will lose balance - The weapon will cause contraction of muscles that will make the person lose his balance and fall off the ground. When the attacker loses balance then he could develop scrapes, bruises, cuts, and fractures especially if he fell to a rough ground surface.

2. Seizures - The Canadian Medical Association has a documentation of an officer chasing a suspect, when he was hit by his own taser gun. One of the barbs hit him at the back and the other hit him in the base at back of the skull. This incident caused the officer to have what is called tonic-clonic seizure and led him to unconsciousness. Although there are no additional damage, it was found that the seizure was directly related to being shot by the stun gun. This is indeed dangerous and can even lead to death.

These are few after-effects of taser or stun gun. However, in most cases, the effect is gone in 15 minutes.
