Dangers of Stun Guns
When most people think of stun guns, they imagine police officers apprehending suspects by delivering a powerful shock through a stun gun. While these weapons are most commonly associated with law enforcement officers, other people can also acquire and use stun guns. These types of weapons, while generally considered safe and non-lethal, can actually be very dangerous if they are used negligently, improperly, or maliciously.

Potential Injuries from Stun Guns
Stun guns are designed to deliver a short yet powerful electric shock to the recipient. This renders them immobile for a period of time. While these weapons are generally used by trained and responsible individuals, people can acquire these weapons and use them without the proper training. This can lead to severe injuries, including:
- Nerve damage
- Severe electrical burns
- Heart palpitations
- Cardiac arrest
Law enforcement officials are trained in the use of stun guns so that they are only utilized to apprehend dangerous individuals. If an untrained individual uses a stun gun, the person can seriously injure innocent victims nearby.
