the trigger is held down to close the switch in the circuit, the current is able to jumpbetween the test electrodes and create a visible spark. The charge electrodes have a gaptoo large for the current to jump. To activate the charge electrodes, a conductor must beplaced in between them. Humans are as good a conductor as any, so when the stun gun ispressed against a person with the trigger depressed, the current tries to jump between thecharge electrodes and as a result the electricity will flow into the person.
How Stun Guns Affect the Body
Many people may think that a stun gun works because it produces electricity andelectricity is bad for you. This is not entirely true. We use electricity to do things on adaily and even hourly basis. The way we do this is by sending electric signals from ourbrain to our nerve cells which in turn release neurotransmitters. These neurotransmittersare then what communicated with the muscles in our body and tells them what to do so
