"A Taser is an electroshock weapon sold by Axon, formerly TASER International.
It fires two small barbed darts intended to puncture the skin and remain attached to the target,
at 180 feet (55 m) per second. Their range extends from 15 feet (4.57 m) for non-law enforcement
Tasers to 35 feet (10.67 m) for police officer Tasers. The darts are connected to the main unit by
thin insulated copper wire and deliver a modulated electric current designed to disrupt voluntary
control of muscles, causing "neuromuscular incapacitation". The effects of a Taser device may only
be localized pain or strong involuntary long muscle contractions, based on the mode of use and connectivity of the darts.
"The term Taser was initially "TASER", abbreviating "Thomas A. Swift Electronic Rifle" after the 1911 novel Tom Swift
and His Electric Rifle, and has been trademarked as a brand name of Axon, but has become informally used to refer
generically to similar devices."
