Riot control weapon Tear gas Spray gunby Sandrila Jones Content Writer Tear gas can also be referred as CS gas. As the name says it is used to create irritation in eyes. The tear gas was invented by the two Americans who are Roger Stoughton and Ben Corson at their Middle bury College in the year of 1928. This tear gas was used in England between 1950’s and 1960’s. Tear gas is aptly named for its capacity to irritate all sensory organs like eyes, nose ears, breathing organs, tongue and temporary blindness to eyes. The name is given for the chemical known as lachrymator which means creator of tears in Latin language. It inflames nerves of eyes to create tears, irritation and temporary blindness which is very useful for the security personnel to dissemble the mass of terrorist or mass of people indulging in illegal activities.
Usually this chemical is used in the form of tear gas spray gun which can spread in the atmosphere easily using air as its media for spreading itself and creating devastating effect. When they use it against rioting mob, to make them immobile chemical spray is used by distributing the spray chemical in the long pipes, and security people will be quite away from the spray and they are protected by the suitable mask so as to not to get affected by the spray.
It is prohibited to use in the international warfare where the chemical can cause devastating effects and it can affect those who are not connected with the warfare. Many chemical weapons are stored in different countries and they can cause diverse effect on the health of the people. These are weapons capable of causing mass destruction and these are the weapons most condemned and kept secretly in the countries defense ammunition centers.
Though tear gas spray gun can be used as in the war, this chemical warfare created such a horrifying effect on the people, they were awestruck and horrified to see its effect. It not only affect on those who were aimed, but it also affects those who uses this weapons, when wind is blown in opposite direction the one who aims will become target for their own weapons.
Even though the spray is used sparingly, the effects are seen days after the spray are used. Authorities use it very rarely, only when they think the situation is going out of their control, and then they will use this tear gas spray gun on rioting public. These are the horrible chemical weapons in the hands of authorities.
