As Stun Gun and TASER Device Civilian Ownership and Abuse Grows, Dangerous Misconceptions Endure

Thorshield Body Armor, Gloves, Pants, Overalls and More Offer Unparalleled TASER Device and Stun Gun Protection for Law Enforcement

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 9, 2013) - Just a quick search of the Internet results in almost limitless examples of TASER device and stun gun abuse. And as TASER device and stun gun ownership and abuse grows, common and dangerous misconceptions endure.

"Law enforcement needs to be protected from this emerging, and often misunderstood, threat," stated Greg Williams, Partner, G Squared Consulting. "Luckily our Thorshield products can provide such protection. Thorshield is the only product sold in the form of clothing, body armor and accessories, such as uniforms and gloves, that can protect one from the effects of a TASER device." Thorshield products are only sold to law enforcement and military personnel.

Examples of TASER device and stun gun misconceptions are extensive. Below are three:

Misconception #1: TASER devices are not being used is crimes. WRONG.
As examples:
- Two suspects are currently wanted in a string of violent robberies in Philadelphia in which they used a TASER device on their victims: http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/10/02/police-taser-used-in-fishtown-robbery
- Similar attacks with TASER devices recently took place in Washington, D.C: www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/police-investigate-two-taser-robberies-and-say-they-may-be-related-to-ones-last-month/2013/10/01/f4fc39b4-2ab1-11e3-b139-029811dbb57f_story.html

Misconception #2: TASER devices and stun guns have not harmed law enforcement. WRONG.
As examples:
- A Billings, MT sheriff's deputy broke both his arms during a training session in which he was hit by a TASER device:

- A Eugene police officer who was zapped by his own TASER device during a scuffle with an allegedly drunk and combative man:

Misconception #3: Standard vests and uniforms protect police from TASER devices. WRONG.
As an example, this video clearly demonstrates that standard police and law enforcement clothing does not protect from TASER devices -- but that Thorshield products do:
