Wochit - Tuesday, 17 April 2018

On Tuesday the top court in Massachusetts struck down a state law that banned civilians from possessing stun guns.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court says the law violated the U.S.

Constitutionโ€™s Second Amendment, which protects Americansโ€™ right to bear arms. It ruled in the case of a man who was criminally charged for possessing a stun gun, holding that such weapons constitute โ€œarmsโ€ protected by the Second Amendment. Chief Justice Ralph Gants wrote for the 6-0 court, โ€œTherefore, under the Second Amendment, the possession of stun guns may be regulated, but not absolutely banned.".
