Q509: Are stun guns illegal?
Stun guns are prohibited weapons and it is an offence to possess them. A stun gun is a weapon that discharges a large voltage of electricity into its target, rendering them incapable of movement for a short time. In the wrong hands they are very dangerous. Recently there have been cases where people have bought them abroad and imported/mailed them into this country. This is still illegal and the penalties will apply.
If you are found in possession of a stun gun, you could face up to ten years imprisonment. In order to possess, import or sell such weapons you must have authority from the Secretary of State.
