Even though at times parents would probably love to have a special tranquilizer gun that they could use on their children, that would be a bit too good to be true. Not just because of the convenience, but because tranquilizer darts are super harmful and clearly shouldn’t be used on children. However, people recently fell for a fake story, hook line and sinker, that said the FDA approved child tranquilizer darts.

Yep. Somehow even in the modern age where we all have access to what is nearly the sum total of human knowledge on our smart phones, sometimes people don’t bother to think to themselves “Hmm, that seems a bit bananas a** crazy. Maybe I should do a quick fact check.” If you do, you will quickly see that this story is totally bogus, but it still got people pretty riled up.
“These new tools specifically created to assist parents with children suffering from ADHD, have a practical range of approximately 10 to 12 feet (3 to 4 meters) and their effect is meant to last for a period of 4 to 6 hours per injection. The manufacturer advises, however, not to use the gun more than 1 to 2 times daily on the same child in order to prevent the development of a physical addiction to the product,” stated the bogus report.
So, should you see someone in your Facebook feed complaining about how inhumane this is, refer them to logic, reason and a simple Google search that will cool their jets.
