Changes to Wisconsin Stun Gun Law – Effective November 1, 2011Posted by Stun Master
Previously, Wisconsin law stated that whoever sells, transports, manufactures, possesses or goes armed with any electric weapon is guilty of a Class E felony. Stun Guns and other electronic devices, such as Tasers, were considered illegal. If you are a citizen in Wisconsin who has a CCW license and would like to purchase an electronic stun device, please see our selection of Stun Guns and Tasers.
Under new Wisconsin Stun Gun Laws, which come into effect November 1, 2011, owning and carrying a stun gun or Taser device is considered legal with restrictions. Citizens may own, carry, and transport these devices if they possess a CCW (Carrying Concealed Weapons) license. Wis. Stat. § 941.295(2g). If they do not possess a CCW license, they may not purchase, but may only carry an electric weapon in their own dwelling or place of business or on land that they own, lease, or legally occupy. Wis. Stat. § 941.295(2g). They may also transport the weapon if it is enclosed within a carrying case. Wis. Stat. § 941.295(2r). The possession or carrying of an electric weapon in any other situations is a felony. Wis. Stat. § 941.295(1m). See our Stun Gun & Taser Laws page for more information.
