If you have done even a little bit of research regarding self defense, you surely have encountered modern weapons such as stun guns and tasers.

Since personal and property security are always on top of most people's priorities, a lot of individuals these days have a stun gun or a taser gun in their bags or even pockets. They come in different models and they are available for use by civilians in most countries. They are proven to be very effective when it comes to protecting your self and your property but they are also known to have some disadvantages.

Pros

Taser guns and stun guns are very easy to use so people would save a lot of time if they choose these modern weapons for self defense. Other self defense methods are indeed effective and provide a lot of benefits; they take longer to learn as compared to the use of the said gadgets or weapons. Another big advantage they provide is convenience. They could fit inside your purse and even in your pockets. One push of a button is all you may need to operate them.

Other advantages of the use of tasers and stun guns are accessibility and efficiency. As mentioned earlier, they are available in many different shops all over the globe.

Law enforcement officers use them so you can be sure that they are very effective.

Cons

One of the biggest drawbacks in the use of stun guns and tasers is that they could be used for other purposes aside from self defense. They could also be mishandled or misused and it could lead to self-inflicted injuries or accidental harm to other people. It could also be used to attack another person which is why their use is not yet legalized in some countries.

All the benefits these weapons provide can easily turn into a disadvantage if the owner is not responsible enough to use them properly. They are easy to get and easy to use for purposes which are the complete opposite of self defense.
