Stun Gun – A Personal Safety Product

In January, President George W. Bush signed the reauthorization of the “Violence Against Women Act” without public debate. More than two out of five women have experienced sexual abuse in their lifetimes as per the study by American Journal of Preventive Medicine. Law enforcement is very much aware of this situation and they are doing their part diligently to curb it, but there is only so much they can do. In addition to relying on the law enforcement, you can take initiative to protect your invaluable freedom.

You might be thinking that it can be dangerous to even think about self defense when faced with violent crime. An attempt at self defense can turn a robbery into a murder--your own. So it’s better to be equipped with safety products like a stun gun, which help us to defend on sudden attacks in parking lots, ATM centers and other secluded places. A majority of law enforcement personnel carry a stun gun for protection against assaults from criminals.

The truth is that in this uncertain world the truest safety we have is the safety we create within ourselves. Being terrified in the face of crime only makes us miserable and accomplishes the goal of crime, which is to create widespread fear and instability.

Let us educate ourselves with the crime facts:

What does a stun gun contain and how does it work?

The batteries supply electricity to a circuit consisting of various electrical components. The circuitry includes multiple transformers, components that boost the voltage in the circuit, typically to between 20,000 and 500,000 volts, and reduce the amperage. This high voltage when induced into human body would over work its muscles and cause exhaustion of energy and would in turn lead to temporary loss of movement. At the same time, the tiny neurological impulses that travel throughout the body to direct muscle movement are interrupted. This causes disorientation and loss of balance and leaves the attacker in a passive and confused condition for several minutes. Still, there is no significant effect on the heart and other organs.
