Missouri State Senate

Introduced

SB 83 - This act makes ownership, possession or discharge of a stun gun or taser gun an unlawful use of a weapon, which is a Class D felony. However, this prohibition does not apply to peace officers, prison employees, members of the armed forces while on duty, 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.

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 is identical to SB 813 (2008).
