PETALING JAYA: The Taser Gun scheme offered by security firm E-Rukun Tetangga which pays those using them a monthly salary is illegal.
But before a person is paid RM250 salary plus EPF and Socso, they must first purchase the Taser Gun for RM20,221 and pay a RM525 subscription fee.
Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum said the ministry had never approved such a scheme.
First of all, a person using the weapon must have a licence. The firm is trying to dupe the public by enticing them with a monthly salary and giving them training on how to use the guns, said Mohd Johari.
We have made it clear that such weapons are not simply given to the public, he added.
He said companies, especially security firms or individuals, who want to own Taser Guns had to obtain licences from the police.
Mohd Johari said only government agencies, enforcement units and licensed security companies could use Taser Guns.
the one that i saw in some movie clips before must be air type…so did a bit of research and here for those who want to know more about Tazer gun…
In police studies, the new Advanced Taser has a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. The Advanced Taser shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travels over the wires and over-rides the central nervous system providing incredible takedown power.
HOW DOES AN AIR TASER WORK?
Upon firing, compressed nitrogen projects two AIR TASER probes 15 feet at a speed of 135 feet per second. An electrical signal transmits throughout the region where the probes make contact with the body or clothing. The result is an instant loss of the attackers neuromuscular control and any ability to perform coordinated action. AIR TASER uses an automatic timing mechanism to apply the electric charge. The AIR TASER releases an electric current in a pre-set time sequence (an initial seven seconds followed by several 1.8-second breaks for a total time of about 30 seconds in each cycle). This cycle ensures that the nervous system of the target does not recover instantly to allow him to remove the probes. The follow-on bursts disrupt the process of re-equilibration of the nervous system. While the target is disabled, the user can place the device on the ground and escape.
HOW CAN THE AIR TASER BE SO EFFECTIVE YET NON-INJURIOUS?
The AIR TASER does not depend upon impact or body penetration to achieve its effect. Its pulsating electrical output interferes with communication between the brain and the muscular system, resulting in loss of control. However, the AIR TASER is non-destructive to nerves, muscles and other body elements. It simply affects them in their natural mode. More importantly, no deaths have ever been directly attributed to the TASER .
