Committee Approves Stun Guns without Concealed Weapons Permit

Posted:

The North Dakota House Judiciary committee has given its approval on a bill to allow North Dakotans to carry stun guns without concealed weapon permits.

The bill will move to the full House for its consideration.

The proposal removes stun guns and tasers from the list of dangerous weapons.

Currently in North Dakota you need a concealed weapon permit to carry a stun gun.

Tanya Long is a concealed weapon permit instructor, she also sells stun guns.

She says women are more interested in carrying stun guns versus pistols for self defense.

"Here's the reality. If someone is stupid enough to attack me and they have a heart condition, it's me or them and I would choose me I'm sorry. This is for self defense purposes and that's what its designed to be for," says Tanya Long of Bismarck.

Another bill being considered in the legislature also removes stun guns from the list of dangerous weapons.
