Taser Guns Law and Legal Definition

The term "taser guns" can be defined as "conducted energy weapons" that use propelled wire to channel energy to a remote target, thereby controlling and overriding the body's central nervous system. A taser gun can fire two probes up to 21 feet, which are connected to the hand-held taser gun via high-voltage, insulated wire. When the probes touch the target, the taser gun transmits electrical pulses along the wires and into the body of the target.” Batiste v. City of Beaumont, 421 F. Supp. 2d 969 (E.D. Tex. 2005)
