The Next 2nd Amendment Fight

Five states and several cities outlaw possession of stun guns, even for self-defense. But such bans could fall by the wayside in the coming year as Second Amendment advocates ramp up court challenges against jurisdictions that deem the weapons illegal.

The D.C. Council last week approved legislation to roll back a city ban on possessing stun guns, as well as a requirement for residents to register pepper spray with police, after the ban was challenged in court.

Officials in New Jersey and New Orleans are working to settle similar lawsuits brought this year claiming bans on stun gun ownership violate residents’ constitutional right to bear arms. Lawyer Stephen Stamboulieh, who is representing clients in both cases, said agreements to settle will require judges to strike down the bans or lawmakers to revise the regulations.

Stun guns are designed to immobilize attackers through high-voltage electric shocks that are administered either through direct contact with prongs or by striking a target with dartlike projectiles. People who have gone to court to seek the right to carry the devices say they would prefer having a nonlethal weapon for self-defense rather than a firearm but have cited Second Amendment protections in defending their right to do so.

    As history has extensively & consistently demonstrated the world’s numerous evil anti-gun treacherous murderous corrupt gov. tyrants [i.e. Mao Hitler, Obama, Stalin, Clinton etc.] have always unscrupulously, hideously vindictively & most partially opposed ANY & ALL appropriate essential necessary lawlful constitutional means of protection self defense etc. for the legitimate law abiding free populous. [except when it comes to themselves of course]

    If it is not one thing it is the other but it is always something and with the Left it is anything that we use for protection. Go to Hell the entire bunch of you and until you all, movie stars etc and government officials take guns away from their guards then forget it buckwheat. My purse is an arsenal and until the Muslim threat, BLM and all crime gone it will remain so.

    Over my dead body and being as you lugnuts lost the election dream on.
