Connecticut residents may soon carry TASER Devices outside the home

Posted by Rob on Friday, 5 March, 2010

Currently, residents of Connecticut can only keep a TASER Device in their home. But now, some forward thinking lawmakers in Hartford are finally considering a bill that would allow them to carry TASER devices for personal protection wherever they go. Let’s face it, not all criminal acts occur within the confines of your own home. CT state law dictates a fine of up to $500, up to three years in jail or both to any law abiding citizen that is caught with a Taser outside their domicile.

TASER devices are not considered firearms by the U.S. Government and can be legally carried (concealed or open) without a permit in 43 other US states.

In police studies, they have found that TASER Devices may have a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. TASER Devices, not to be confused with contact stun guns, shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. This device packs 50,000 volts, which travels through the wires and over-rides the target’s central nervous system providing incredible take down power, even through 2 inches of clothing.

While firearms are also widely popular self defense weapons, not everyone wants to carry a gun that has the potential for taking a life in self-defense, even the life of a low life thug attempting to harm them or their family. Traditional stun guns, which are also popular and effective, do require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER C2 can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER C2 eliminates many problems some individuals have, providing a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape dangerous situations to contact the police.

Hopefully the other couple of states that still restrict TASER Device use by law abiding citizens will follow Connecticut’s lead and reconsider their pro-criminal ways and allow their citizens to remain on equal ground.

TASER Device scene in “The Hangover”

Posted by Rob on Sunday, 24 January, 2010

I finally caught the movie “The Hangover” this weekend… I know, I know, it’s been out awhile… I thought it was pretty funny, but the best scene was the TASER clip…

Rob Riggle playing a Las Vegas cop jabs a stun gun into Ed Helm’s neck, then a couple kids from a police station tour get to demonstrate a TASER Device on Bradley Cooper in the crotch and Zach Galifianakis in the face. Ouch!

I was reading somewhere that the director Todd Phillips was considering using real stun guns and TASER Devices during the shoot. That would have made the shoot pretty interesting, but the actors did a pretty good job selling the scene. Without the actual 50,000 volts, of course.

A person hit with a real TASER Device will feel dazed and confused for several minutes. The pulsating electrical current causes an involuntary muscle contractions ant the result is a sense of vertigo. It can momentarily effectively stun or render an actor or attacker unconscious. Yet, the TASER Device‘s low electrical amperage and relatively short duration of its pulsating current, ensures a less-than-lethal charge. Moreover, a TASER Device does not cause permanent damage or any long-term after effects to the victim’s muscles, nerves or other body functions.

It may however leave a lasting psychological impression, one that the zap-ee will not soon forget.

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Changes to our TASER Product Line

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 13 May, 2009

Awhile back, TASER came out with some cool TASER® C2™ models. They had a Forest Camouflage, a Desert Camouflage, Fashion Pink, Red Hot and an interesting Leopard Print to choose from along with the standard Electric Blue, Black Pearl, Titanium Silver and Metallic Pink models.

It seemed that there was a TASER of a different color to satisfy just about anyone’s sense of fashion and taste.

Sadly, a few of the models have hit the chopping block. I wouldn’t have thought that it would be a big deal to carry several different plastic casings, all of the guts are still the same, but apparently 9 flavors is too many.

Forest Camouflage, Desert Camouflage, Fashion Pink, and Leopard Print are now no longer being produced. If you have one already, it will still be covered under TASER Warranty but they are now Collector’s Items.

The ADVANCED TASER® M-18™ and M-18L™ has also been deemed obsolete and will no longer be offered. Instead, the TASER® X26C™, modeled after the TASER® X26C™ Law Enforcement model will continue to be offered to civilians.

So now your TASER C2 Devices are still available in Electric Blue, Black Pearl, Titanium Silver, Metallic Pink and Red Hot (Black Pearl only without Laser sight) and the TASER X26C is available in Black.

In police studies, the TASER X26C and TASER C2 has a higher instant incapacitation rate than 9mm hand guns. The civilian model TASER Devices shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible takedown power.

Not everyone wants to carry a firearm with the potential for taking a life in self-defense. Normal stun guns require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER Device can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER X26C and TASER C2s eliminates these problems and provides a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape to contact the police.

Be Safe, Be Prepared.

Vanessa Hudgens, TASER self-defense advocate?

Posted by Rob on Friday, 10 April, 2009

A while back I was hoping I could get a celebrity product endorsement. At the time, Paris Hilton was in the news and I thought If I could get her to buy a Pink TASER C2 and tell all her socialite friends she bought it from WorthProtectionSecurity.com, I could drum up some big business.

No such luck.

But now, 20-year-old actress Vanessa Hudgens of ‘High School Musical’ fame has reportedly purchased a TASER Device. Not from me:( .

Vanessa Hudgens

Apparently, the star is feeling vulnerable and intends to protect her newly purchased mansion with the self-defense weapon. Burglars beware.

Hudgens told Us Weekly, “I keep a TASER in my purse for self-defense. I’m moving into a house by myself and it’s scary.” You go, Girl!

“There was a guy who was walking down a street in London and I think he was a little drunk. He was blocking the door so my bodyguard had to push him aside. I got hit in the face. I looked in the mirror and got a huge scratch and I was bleeding.” added Hudgens.

The TASER C2 has a 15-foot range, and the lithium power magazine, providing up to 50 jolts. An integrated LED light is included to help you see into the shadows before firing, and a trigger safety cover is provided to help prevent any accidental activation. The personal TASER C2 will transmit 50,000 volts of electrical pulses along the wires and into the attacker’s body, affecting the sensory and motor functions of their peripheral nervous system. This energy can penetrate up to two cumulative inches of clothing.

The TASER C2 comes in eight attractive and stylish colors: black pearl, titanium silver, metallic pink, electric blue, red hot, forest camouflage, desert camouflage and leopard print.

Who needs a TASER C2?

- Any women who values her personal security and has a desire for a simple solution to the possibility of crime in their lives.

- Any man who need to provide effective protection for their family.

- Parents of college co-eds who want to extend protection to their daughters while away at college.

- The plain truth is that anyone has a legitimate need for state of the art personal protection, male, female, adult, or elderly could benefit by carrying a TASER C2.

TASER Inventor Dies at 88

Posted by Rob on Monday, 16 February, 2009

The scientist who invented the TASER stun gun in the 1960s, died earlier this month. This post is a tad long, but it is a neat history lesson.


John “Jack” Higson Cover, Jr. passed away on February 7, 2009 at the age of 88.

Trained as a nuclear physicist, most of Cover’s professional career was spent in the aerospace and defense business.

Cover was born on April 6, 1920 in New York City, but grew up in the Chicago area. He earned a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D. in physics at the University of Chicago, where he was instructed by renowned atomic scientists Enrico Fermi and Edward Teller.

He was always tinkering with gadgets and created cooked-food testers, voice activated switches and electric toothbrushes in the 1940s.

Cover was an Army Air Forces test pilot during World War II. After the war, he spent several years at the Inyokern Naval Ordnance Test Station at China Lake, Calif. He was a scientist at North American Aviation from 1952 until 1964 and later worked for IBM and Hughes.

In response to a rash of airplane hijackings in the 1960s, Cover started development on what would later be known as a TASER. He realized the risk involved as sky marshals started to arm themselves with handguns on commercial airliners to discourage hijackers.

“Let me figure out something better than shooting people that might crash the plane,” said Cover knowing if a stray bullet missed a hijacker and pierced the plane’s fuselage instead, it may go down.

Going off what he heard about a man who was temporarily immobilized by a fallen power line, he began development of a device resembling a flashlight in his garage in the late 1960s. Except this flashlight shot darts up to 15 feet and delivered an electric charge.

“Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle” by Victor Appleton was one of Cover’s favorite childhood books. In the story, the young Tom Swift invented a rifle that shot bolts of electricity. Cover adapted the acronym TASER and derived his weapon’s name from “Thomas A. Swift Electric Rifle”, using the formal first name of Tom, and including the middle initial “A”, that did not appear in the book, but fit well in the acronym. (Cover once joked that answering the phone TSER was awkward so he added the middle initial.)

Quite pleased with his invention, Cover assumed that this weapon capable of stunning but not killing a man would have wide appeal. In 1970, TASER Systems Inc. was created.

Unfortunately, due to the gunpowder propulsion in the darts, the TASER device was classified as a firearm by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. This discouraged sales to police and military forces and prevented any possibility of a civilian market.


Jack Cover with a TASER Prototype, 1975

Cover continued to attempt to market his 7-watt TASER during the 1970s but was ultimately failing. At the expense of a tragic event in 1979, Cover got a break. A woman in Los Angeles, Eula Love, was shot to death in an altercation between herself and the Los Angeles Police Department over an unpaid gas bill. As a result of this controversy, the LAPD finally agreed to field test the TASER in 1980.

The LAPD eventually approved use of a more effective 11-watt TASER model. Even with LAPD and several other agencies buying in, overall sales still did not take off as expected and the business eventually collapsed after some success in the 1980s.

In 1993, Tom and Rick Smith from Arizona contacted the 73-year-old Cover, and expressed interest in revamping the TASER into a non-lethal self-defense device that could be legally sold to the general public.

“Jack was very dedicated to the mission,” said Tom Smith, co-founder and chairman of TASER International. “He had a true belief in where this technology was going to go.”

In 1994, TASER International launched the AIR TASER with a breakthrough compressed air propulsion system, instead of gunpowder.

The TASER is now the most widely sold projectile stun guns in the world and has been adopted by more than 13,000 military and law enforcement agencies in over 45 countries around the world. In addition, more than 180,000 civilian model TASER Devices have been sold to private citizens.

“Jack is an unsung hero. He did something great for the world, saved a lot of lives and prevented a lot of injuries,” said Greg Meyer, a retired police captain who was in charge of LADP’s non-lethal weapons research who has known Cover for 30 years.

The TASER product line has its fair share of critics. The American Civil Liberties Union has been pushing to have TASER devices classified as lethal weapons, but medical experts disagree on whether the Tasers directly caused the deaths. Many still can not dispute the effectiveness of the TASER in the prevention of deadly police encounters and an improvement in the tactics needed to place violent and unruly offenders into custody.

Many times just drawing the TASER has been known to change the mind of an otherwise less-than-cooperative individual. See Also: Don’t Tase Me Bro! Or the Emu!

One of TASER International’s latest products is the TASER C2, aimed at civilians.

The new Taser C2 comes in eight attractive and stylish colors: black pearl, titanium silver, metallic pink, electric blue, red hot, forest camouflage, desert camouflage and leopard print.

In police studies, the new TASER C2 has a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. The TASER C2 shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible take down power.

Not everyone wants to carry a firearm with the potential for taking a life in self-defense. Normal stun guns require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER C2 can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER C2 eliminates these problems and provides a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape to contact the police.

Cover was suffering Alzheimer’s disease and died of pneumonia at the Golden West Retirement Home in Mission Viejo. Cover was cremated, and there were no immediate plans to conduct a memorial service. In addition to his wife Ginny, of San Clemente, four children, two stepchildren, ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren survive him.

Don’t Tase the Emu, Bro!

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 21 August, 2008

Sheriff’s Deputies of Bay County in Florida ended up deploying a Taser on an unruly emu. Yes, an emu. Apparently, a female emu named Plop-Plop, escaped from a farm and ended up camping out in a pen with some horses and goats.

Local deputies were called to aid in her capture, but Plop-Plop “went kind of crazy” when they arrived. Fearing the large bird would injure itself or the deputies, a Taser was used to subdue and immobilize the animal.

After the tasing, Plop-Plop fizz-fizz-led out, was brought to the Bay County Animal Control Center and made a full recovery. Oh what a relief it is.

The emu’s owner, probably in need of an Alka-Seltzer, is expected to claim his runaway emu soon.

Who Would Win a Fight, a Taser or a Stun Gun?

Posted by Rob on Monday, 11 August, 2008

VS.

How many volt stun gun should I buy?
I’ve seen them online from 80,000 volts to 2 million volts. Does the voltage really matter? What is the difference between lower and higher voltage?
Is it the amount time the attacker is disabled, or the amount of pain he will feel?
What is the advantage to buying higher voltage stun guns?
Are there any stun gun models that work better than others do?
Which is better rechargeable or standard battery powered stun guns?
What is the difference between Tasers and a traditional stun gun?
Are 80,000 volt stun guns better than 50,000 volt Tasers?

A common misconception is that the voltage of a stun gun is what stops an attacker, the higher the voltage the better. In actuality, it is not the voltage, but the amperage. From an electrical standpoint, amperage is the measurement of the amount of electrons moving in a circuit and the voltage is the measurement of how much force those electrons are under.

It is not the voltage that can harm an individual, it is the amperage. One amp is enough to kill a person, while our stun gun products typically run 5-11 milliamps. This range is enough to temporarily incapacitate someone without rendering any permanent damage.

Both Tasers and Stun Guns are low amperage devices so you are not actually electrocuted by them.

STUN GUNS

Stun Guns concentrate on an individual’s muscle group and transfers the energy stored in the device very quickly to the target and causes the muscles to do a great deal of work. Basically, the jolt from a stun gun causes muscles to twitch at a high rate of speed, which rapidly depletes the attacker’s blood sugar and causes a great amount of lactic acid to be built up in a rather short amount of time. Imagine an intense feeling of muscle failure you would get from an extremely strenuous and lengthy physical workout, then multiply it by three. The attacker is now unable to further produce energy to these muscles and their body is unable to function properly.

The tiny neurological impulses that provide direction and control to voluntary muscle movement are also impaired. An overwhelmed neuromuscular system causes an attacker to lose balance and collapse to the ground. It may be possible for an extremely determined attacker or drugged out assailant to partially overcome these effects, and contact must be maintained for several seconds to produce the desired result. Resistance to this would call for an additional period of contact to the partially dazed individual or deployment of another self defense mechanism, such as pepper spray.

Stun Guns are typically powered by one to four 9-volt batteries or two to three Lithium batteries. These batteries supply the various electrical components in the circuit with electricity, including multiple transformers, components that provide a voltage boost and reduce the amperage of the unit. As previously indicated, the actual effectiveness of a stun gun is dependent on the amperage of a particular model, the attacker’s body size, the attacker’s determination, and the amount of time you are able to hold the device to his body. The higher the voltage, the quicker the lactic acid may build up, but it is still a matter of amperage for effectiveness.

This high-voltage but low-amperage charge has what you would consider a lot of pressure, but not that much damaging power as far as intensity goes. A painful jolt will startle an attacker with a ½-second jolt. An approximately 1-2 second discharge should start to cause muscle spasms and a dazed effect on the attacker. An ideal 3-5 second zap should render the attacker disoriented and unbalanced, as well as loss of muscle control as he hits the ground.

Be advised, a stun gun is not intended to be quick ½-second tap weapon. The most effective deployment is when the stun gun is firmly pressed into a primary target such as an articulating hinge of the body (such as an armpit, shoulder socket, hip joint or abdomen) or to a secondary target of a larger muscle group such as the thigh. If you apply the stun device to an area of the body that can easily be pulled away, such as an outstretched arm, you lose your element of surprise and the effectiveness is greatly reduced.

We would suggest any of our 625,000 volt Stun Master Stun Guns to our 950,000 volt Cell Phone Stun Gun models, and any of the models in between. As far as bang for your buck goes, for under $80, these models offer quite an acceptable stopping power taking into account a good amperage and voltage ratings. We do offer much cheaper $20-40, lower powered models if cost is a concern, but realistically you want to pack some more power than a 80,000 to 300,000 volt stun gun. The most important concern would be size of the stun gun in comparison to the size of your hand, and the convenience of carrying or disguising the stun gun as a harmless cellular phone. In our opinion, while rechargeable stun guns seem more convenient, nothing beats the consistent power of a standard stun gun with regular Energizer batteries.

TASERS

Taser technology works slightly different from that of stun guns, although the term taser and stun guns are often used interchangeably. The most notable difference between the Taser and Stun Guns is the distance required to deploy. While Stun Guns are contact weapons, a taser shoots out two prongs that attach to an attacker’s clothing or skin and deliver a shocking zap from 15-30 feet away. In a pinch, C2 Tasers work as a close quarters contact stun gun also.

In contrast to the muscular attack of stun guns, TASER Devices attack the human body’s electrical system. A 50,000 volt taser would override the normal electrical activity carrying signals to your brain, affecting the signals sent to muscles to allow basic mechanical function. Basically shorting out your electrical system, individuals hit with a Taser are unable to move, tense up and just freeze in place, typically after hitting the ground.

This unique instantaneous effect is why Tasers are more effective in quickly stopping an attacker and why law enforcement typically prefer TASER Devices over traditional stun guns. Anyone can be subdues or incapacitated by a Taser, even assailants hopped up on drugs. The drawback is that the effects of a taser are recovered from much quicker, which is both good and bad, depending on the situation.

When a Taser’s probes strike an attacker, the Advanced Taser M18L must continue to fire to keep an attacker at bay. A Taser C2 has an automatic 30-second firing sequence that continues to juice an assailant so you can set the device down and run to safety while the person remains incapacitated for the duration of the cycle.

If you have ever watched the demo videos from Taser or on YouTube, you will notice a stun gunned victim recovers slowly because their muscles are extremely fatigued, while a tased and confused victim recovers much quicker as they regain control of their electrical system.

We are not talking about the videos of drunk college kids zapping each other for ½ second on the arm and laughing about it. We are talking about the fewer videos of actual stun gun demonstrations where a stun gun actually deployed properly and deliberately for the recommended period of time. It is no wonder while some people question the effectiveness of these weapons after watching some drunken kids mess around in a dorm room.

Make no mistake about it, both Tasers and Stun Guns are both reliable and effective self defense weapons.

Wanna buy a Taser, Paris Hilton?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 31 July, 2008

I was surfing some gadget review site today, not sure why, but I ended up skimming a new cell phone write-up. One of the lines that caught my attention was the line “…solid option compared to the (other cell phone) — but only if you live and die by instant messaging and you don’t mind being seen with Paris Hilton’s device of choice in public.”

I was thinking how can that be a bad thing? I’d love to be associated with some big time celeb using my products. I would have to name dropped to, I don’t want Paris Hilton running around town with one of my fashion pink C2 Tasers and have some other website’s sales go up, she’d have to say she got it at WorthProtectionSecurity.com or at least WorthProtection.com so they can follow the main link in. That link is shorter to remember.

Hey Paris, Please buy a taser from me and tell or text all your friends where you got it!

Maybe I can get Billy Mays to do an infomercial, that would be cool. Sadly I just saw Billy on TV doing some silly insurance commercial. What gives there? No more laundry detergents, stain removers, or silly putty glue to endorse? I mean freaking insurance Billy?? I got some pepper spray or a cool cell phone stun gun that you would be perfect to endorse. I just don’t have the advertising budget right now for it.

Hey Billy, “I’d gladly pay you Tuesday for a infomercial today”?

You guys let me know, ok?

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
Rob

Mixed Martial Arts Champ KO’d by Stun Gun

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 30 July, 2008

Every now and then I get someone asking me if stun guns really work. When I offer to “show” them, they always change their mind. And I don’t even mean driving the stun gun into their abdomen and unleashing 10 seconds of full power. All they need to do is hold out their finger and let me pull the trigger for 1/2 a second at about 1/2 inch away. They will get the point and mentally multiply what would happen in an actual deployment of this self defense tool.

I think one of the problems is all the stupid amateur YouTube videos of drunk college kids gingerly zapping each other with low voltage stun gun models. Sure a 1/2 second jolt from an $18.00, 80,000 volt stun gun on a low resolution camera phone video will be less than impressive. Get a real stun gun, like one of our StunMaster 800,000 volt Cell Phone Stun Guns. Bury the stun gun into the target and actually apply the juice for a couple seconds. I’m betting the video will be less lame.

Take for example 28-year-old Claude Patrick, a well known mixed Martial Arts (MMA) instructor and competitor. The International Fight League (IFL) lists him at 6-foot-1, 170-pounds and “one of the best young athletes” in MMA.

The other day Patrick and several friends were attacked in a Quebec hotel room by several other men armed with stun guns and broken bottles. Now don’t go off on the tangent and start blaming stun guns and tasers. This attack could have just as easily involved baseball bats, knives or firearms. It is not the implement to be judged, but the actions of the malicious attackers that should be condemned.

“I don’t remember what happened; then again, a stun gun to the head will do that to you. I walked into my friend’s room to say good night and thanks for the show, and the next thing I know I woke up in the hospital,” said Patrick. Seven victims were beaten and stunned or Tasered by a group of about nine men reported the police.

“I’m assuming I got tased from behind. They said I got hit with a stun gun or a Taser and that’s all she wrote.” Patrick continued, “because if I would have been tased from the front, there’s no way that person would have left unscathed” in reference to his exceptional martial arts background.

On the street, you are much less likely to be attacked by someone of Claude Patrick’s physical and combative prowess. And in self defense, you are not going to announce the presence of your equalizer until the last possible moment before unleashing its dominance.

Just like this unsuspecting mixed martial artist, your attacker won’t even know what hit him.

And the winner of this bout, by a result of a Knockout… StunMastahhh STuunn GUUNNNNN!

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
Rob
