    Not legal in MA for civilians. I can shoot a BG, but not stun him. Shocking.

  3. avatarJOE MATAFOME says:

    I wouldn’t stun anyone because it’s a waste of time, I just think stuns guns are cool.

    There been some lawsuites over being misused buy cops other people. That led have them not being used all some places.

    I want one of those police style stun guns but I would rather carry a real gun. I like in the news whenever you hear about some group trying to get cops to give them up; I guess they don’t realize that without the stun gun the police would just have to shoot the more unruly criminals.
