Stun guns could kill

Stun guns can have deadly effects on VNS implant patients. The VNS device is attached to the vagal nerve, which helps patients control seizures. The vagal nerve is attached to the brain and any electrical application to the person can have deadly outcome.

If we are threatened by someone using a stun gun, we have the right to use deadly force to protect ourselves. If not, then it will be our families who sue anyone who administers such a device. We have rights, too.
