Recall that this spring’s Supreme Court decision in Caetano v. Massachusetts rejected some of the arguments for excluding stun guns from Second Amendment protection, but didn’t definitely decide whether other arguments might carry the day. Stun gun bans remain in effect in Hawaii; Massachusetts; New York; Rhode Island; Annapolis, Md.; Baltimore; New Orleans; Philadelphia; Tacoma, Wash.; Wilmington, Del.; and Howard County, Md., plus some smaller towns. They are also heavily regulated (e.g., with total bans on carrying in most places outside the home) in some other places.
