Why do I have to pass a felony background check?

The states of Maryland, Minnesota, and Illinois require a background check in order to keep TASER self defense devices out of the hands of criminals. No TASER product will be shipped to one of these areas without a clear felony background check. Completing background checks ensures full compliance with user identification and screening. After purchase you must register your device with TASER International, either online or by phone. By registering your unit, you will activate the 1 year manufacturer warranty.

RESTRICTIONS: DC, HI, MA, NJ, NY, and RI ban the civilian sale of TASER weapons. CT, IL, MI, and WI are legal with certain restrictions and requirements. We only ship Taser products to locations were it is legal to own a taser, see Taser Laws. A physical address is required for TASER orders which are shipped by UPS Ground. UPS cannot deliver to a P.O. Box. Adult signature required on delivery.
