STUNBRELLA: TOMORROW'S HIGH-TECH SELF-DEFENSE WEAPON IS AVAILABLE TODAY

STUNBRELLA: TOMORROW'S HIGH-TECH SELF-DEFENSE WEAPON IS AVAILABLE TODAY
 MIAMI, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- When secretary Olga Sanchez goes to her job in a tough Los Angeles neighborhood, she carries her "umbrella" -- not to protect her from rain or sun, but to protect her from attack.

 Reason: Her "folded umbrella" actually is a powerful electronic stun gun in disguise, packing a battery-powered, 60,000-volt, nonlethal punch that can knock down, temporarily paralyze and mentally confuse the biggest of muggers.
 "Stunbrella" is the name of this latest high-tech self-defense weapon -- and according to its exclusive world distributor, Stunbrella is a product that appeals to safety-conscious Americans both urban and rural, men and women, young and old.
 Says John Katon, president of Miami-based Tamiami Gun Distributors, "Stunbrella is the first product using stun-gun technology in a design that makes it instantly available for self-defense.
 "Stun guns have been around for 20 years, but by the time you got your stun gun out of its case or your pocket or a handbag or attache case, you could be dead. Stunbrella overcomes that problem because you can carry it in your hand at all times and no one will suspect you have a powerful weapon at your fingertip."
 As the world's first practical stun gun, Stunbrella is legal in 45 states and requires no permit.
 "If someone -- or even a dog -- approaches you with hostile intent," says Katon, "you simply press the pointed end of the Stunbrella onto any part of the attacker's body and touch the trigger-like switch.
 "Instantly, a frightening, crackling arc of electricity starts pulsing between the two small steel nubs on the tip of Stunbrella. If the sound alone doesn't frighten the person or dog into instant retreat, the physical zap will quickly render the attacker into a 'sack of potatoes' lying harmlessly on the ground, allowing you to escape."
 Stunbrella sells for $99.95 and includes three interchangeable handles and fabric sheaths (red, black, gray) to color-coordinate with the user's clothing, for those who wish to do so. The self-defense weapon uses a common 9-volt battery.
 Credit-card buyers may order Stunbrella by using a 24-hour toll-free phone number, 800-234-STUN (800-234-7886).
