SB 628 - This act defines a "stun gun" or "taser" as any portable device or weapon from which an electric current, impulse, wave, or beam is produced that is capable of incapacitating temporarily, injuring, or killing a human being.

This act would make possession or discharge of a stun gun or taser gun an unlawful use of a weapon. However, this prohibition does not apply to peace officers, prison employees, members of the armed forces, people vested with the judicial power of the state, any person with a duty to execute process, probation officers, corporate security advisors, or coroners or medical examiners.

Unlawful use of a weapon is a Class D felony.
