Legalize Non Lethal Stun Guns in New Castle County, Delaware

This petition had 64 supporters


For those who may not feel comfortable carrying a loaded gun, a stun gun is an effective, convenient, and non lethal form of protection against perpetrators. I am a grandmother of 7 and do not feel comfortable having a loaded gun in my home, with the risk of fatality to one of my grandchildren should they "play" with the gun.To eliminate concerns about accidental death, I would prefer to have a stun gun readily available, one with a disable pin, knowing that my grandchildren could not use the stun gun unless the pin was engaged.

Stun Guns can also be used as a warning, to ward off potential attacks, by simply holding it up and allowing the person to see and hear the electrical current they will encounter if they try to attack you. 

Currently Stun Guns, which are non lethal weapons, are listed in with the potentially lethal Tasers, in NCC Ordinance No. 85-194 Section 22-9. This code states that the manufacture, sale, and possession of a Stun Gun, or Taser, is punishable by no less than a $500 fine AND imprisonment not exceeding 6 months. As you can see, the law does not allow you the effective, convenient, and non-lethal choice of a Stun Gun. Please sign this petition so that we may have the freedom to choose this form of protection.
