TASER® (Civilian)

taser-international.jpg

History

In 1967 the electronic control device we all know as TASER® came into thought by a man named Jack Cover, a nuclear physicist and NASA scientist. His revelation came about when he was reading the newspaper one day, hearing about a man in the newspaper who allegedly survived several hours of being electrocuted after making contact with a fallen power line and coming out of it unharmed.

Named after his childhood hero Tom Swift, the first Thomas A Swift Electric Rifle (TASER®) prototype was completed in 1970. By 1974 the TASER® TF1 was patented and put into production. Unfortunately, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) classified the device as a firearm due to the gunpowder that was used to operate it. At that point, the possibility of having a non-lethal option in the civilian market was laid to rest.

In 1993, brothers Tom and Rick Smith collaborated with Jack Cover and further built on the product. They developed the AIR TASER®, utilizing nitrogen-propelled cartridges instead of gun powder. As a result, the ATF no longer classified it as a firearm. Since that time, TASER International has designed models for both civilians and law enforcement. These include the C2, M26, X26, X2, X3.

Function

TASER® Electronic Control Devices work by immobilizing a target through a process called "neuromuscular incapacitation". When the darts are fired and enter the subject the body locks up, preventing the individual from moving for a number of seconds. The two probes create a circuit, jamming the electrical signals that run throughout the body and causing involuntary muscle contractions. Once the cycle is over, the muscles become freed and the target is able to move voluntarily again. Most importantly, there is no permanent damage. The reason there is no lasting damage or ill effects is because like most stun guns, the TASER® works off high voltage and low amperage, providing a stunning effect but not harming the host. The C2 has a 30 cycle and the M26C, X26C and X2 models have 10 seconds, respectively. A cycle commences with each pull of the trigger. TASER International will replace any device, under warranty, that is used and left behind in an altercation.
