Stun Gun Attorney New Jersey

Taser Attorney Newark

The use of stun guns and tasers as a means of personal protection has grown in popularity over the last few years. Unfortunately, the laws around the country vary for the use of such devices. It is critical to determine what the state law is before carrying a taser or stun gun for personal protection.

For example, in New Jersey, it is unlawful for an individual to possess a taser or stun gun. It is not a defense that you were only using it for personal protection or that your house was previously burglarized. The courts will not recognize this as a valid defense if you are arrested for using such a device.

Under N.J.S.A. 2C:39-3(h), only law enforcement personnel, may carry a taser or stun gun. There are no exceptions for personal use in New Jersey. If a taser or stun gun is found in your possession, you will be charged with a crime in the 4 th degree. This means that you will face a penalty of up to $10,000 and jail time of up to 18 months.
