Its a new self defense mechanism that will be used by Muskingum County State Patrol Officers. You may have heard of stun guns, but have you heard of taser guns? Last week after being certified, patrol officers were issued one of there own. The guns will strike a person from up to 21-feet. With 26-watts, and 50-thousand volts no one can sustain the force. The taser disrupts the muscles around the skeletal system to where thay just go limp. It doesn't matter if you have a high pain tolerance or if you are under the influence of drugs, if hit with one of the beams your nerves will stop and you will hit the ground. There are several situations where this gun can be of great use, and officers plan on using them if necessary.
