Stun Gun Information And Restrictions
What Is A Stungun?
A stungun is a legal electrical self-defence device that puts out a
high voltage shock. By touching an intruder with the gun, the
person is immobilized for several minutes with no permanent harm.
Most stun guns use a 9 volt NICKEL CADMIUM rechargeable battery or a
regular 9 volt battery. This is the total amount of
power available to the gun. It does not create anymore power than that which is provided by the 9 volt battery. The stun gun
modifies the form of the power provided by the battery. There is not enough power that can be generated from a 9 volt battery to cause electrocution. When a stungun states that it produces 50,000 volts and you see it arcing on the test probe, it can be very intimidating; however, you have probably been hit by 25,000 volts many times when you walk across carpet on a dry day and touch a door knob. The reason this high voltage does not cause permanent harm is because the amperage is so low. Most stun guns put out a G current effectiveness of 0.003 amps (3 Milliamps).
Effects of a Stun Gun
A stun gun works on the neural and muscular system. The effects to the
internal organs are minimal. The maximum electrical
shocking power is well below the borderline shock range, which has been scientifically established at 5 milliamps at 60 cycles per second, similar to that of a household current. Because the typical stun gun operates at 3 milliamps and at a much lower pulse frequency, it is regarded safe. Although longterm effects to the internal organs are minimal, the device still does what it is supposed to do by way of being a self defense weapon. The stun gun has a very insignificant effect on the human heart.
1/2 second: will startle an assailant giving
some pain, muscle contraction and shock.
1-2 seconds: will cause muscle spasms and a dazed mental state.
3-5 seconds: will cause loss of balance and muscle control, total mental confusion, and disorientation leaving the assailant
