Stun Gun Versus Skin Case Study

If you own a stun gun, you know how effective it can be when you need to defend yourself from an attacker. Civilians aren’t the only ones that are armed with stun guns though. There are several thousand police stations across the country using it as well. But in some cases when a stun gun has been used, questions have arisen in the courtroom as to injuries related to it use.

There have been case studies done pertaining to stun gun use and the injuries that are caused by them. These case studies have been used in courtrooms to defend it use by police officers, and even civilians.

The conclusion of the case study was that the damage to the skin was minimal and negligible. This, however, has not changed the common police policy to take a suspect to the hospital for examination if they have been zapped with a stun gun.
