Shocking photographic trend

Did you know that you can build a functional TASER from an ordinary disposable camera?

These disposable cameras (about $5 dollars a pop) have a capacitor that can store up to 600 volts of stopping power. When the capacitor discharges those volts, it delivers an amperage comparable to stun guns. Perfect for our shocking device.
Complete instructions follow, including a picture of the writer's zapped arm:

I don't recommend doing this to friends, nor do I recommend doing it to enemies -- unless you can hold the zapper to their necks for at least five seconds. The brief encounter my arm had with it wasn't enough to knock me out, but it did make me weak in the knees. Either way, don't try this at home, kiddies.

We definitely need mandatory background checks plus a fifteen day waiting period.

And sales to minors should be strictly prohibited! I "shutter" at the thought!
