What Does TASER Mean?TASER means "Thomas A. Swift's Electric Rifle."
A TASER is a weapon that fires electronic probes that are capable of incapacitating a person. The word TASER is the trademark of the US company Axon, formerly known as TASER International. The inventor of the TASER, Jack Cover, named the device using a loose acronym of the title of the book Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle, a sci-fi novel he was a fan of.
TASER is now widely used to refer to any type of weapon that delivers an electric shock (i.e., stun guns), not just those that fire projectiles.
In general use, TASER is usually written in lower case (i.e., as taser) and is often spelled tazer.
