What are the best options for a woman to protect herself with a non-lethal device?
The choices for female safety devices include pepper sprays, batons, tasers, knives, alarms, and a variety of stun devices that come in many shapes, sizes, and voltages. Many choices, which leads to many questions. Let's answer some of the most popular questions when it comes to stun devices and female runner safety.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A STUN DEVICE?
A stun device is a hand-held, battery powered device that is designed to deliver a strong electrical shock to stop an attacker. A stun device has prongs at the end of it, and touching an attacker with the prongs while activating the device will cause an electrical current to go from the prongs to the attacker. Because they operate at a non-lethal level, no serious or permanent injury is inflicted.
WILL I BE STUNNED IF I USE ONE ON AN ATTACKER?
No. If an attacker touches you while you are stunning him or her, the electrical current will not pass to your body. The current is absorbed by the attacker, and cannot be passed back to you.
ARE STUN DEVICES SAFE?
Yes. Stun guns have been proven to be a safe and effective non-lethal self defense product. They do not cause any permanent damage. Just cracking a stun device in the air is often enough to stop an an attack before it even happens.
