    State & Local Stun Gun Laws

    (Updated January, 2019)

    We know that State & Local Stun Gun Laws can be confusing, and sometimes even contradictory. Furthermore, those laws are frequently changed, amended, or sometimes (more & more frequently) repealed.

    As a matter of fact, we've recently seen several states and local jurisdictions abolish their restrictions on stunning devices.

    To help you sort through this quagmire, we have compiled below a listing of states that currently have in effect any significant restrictions on the purchase, possession and carrying of stunning devices.

    Although we believe our information is current at the time of this writing, it is beyond our scope to ensure that this summary of stun gun laws is completely accurate or up-to-date. As such, we make no claims whatsoever regarding the accuracy, currency, or applicability of these codes and statutes to your specific jurisdiction.

    Please understand that this information is presented as a guideline only; it is up to you, the purchaser, to ultimately determine the legality of your purchase and usage of any item in accordance with State and Local Statutes.

    We do not agree with any legislation that infringes on a person's right to self-protection, by whatever means he or she feels most comfortable with. In fact, we adamantly oppose most, if not all, such legislation. Unfortunately, we are required to abide by these restrictions, however inane they may be.

    Streetwise Stun Guns ~ Frequently Asked Questions

    Streetwise Stun Guns ... What Are They ... How Do They Work?

    Streetwise Stun Guns are an excellent means of self-defense; first as a deterrent and, if need be, they can disable an attacker temporarily by delivering a non-lethal, high-voltage electric shock.

    Just test firing one of them into the air is often enough to stop an attack or aggressive activity.

    As the bright electric current pulsates between the test prongs it creates an intimidating electrical sight and sound. An attacker with any sense at all will stop in his tracks.

    If the sight and sound doesn't stop him a jolt from the unit certainly will!

    Simply touching him with the device will deliver a high voltage shock causing loss of balance and muscle control, confusion, and disorientation – bringing him to his knees and making him incapable of further aggressive activity. Full recovery takes about five to ten minutes. There is no permanent harm.

    Here is an actual quote from Sgt. Robert Williams who had to use one of our stun guns while working for VPS Security Company in California: "I would like to say what a well made product it is. It enabled me to take down 2 people safely and without any injury. This deterred the crowd that they were with until the police arrived."

    Pepper Spray Laws by State (Updated October, 2017)

    We know that State & Local Pepper Spray Laws can be confusing, and sometimes even contradictory. Furthermore, those laws are frequently changed, amended, or (sometimes) abolished. As a result, keeping current on your local laws can be overwhelming.

    To help you sort through the various state statutes, we have compiled below a summary of each state's laws on the possession and use of non-lethal aerosol weapons.

    The information was obtained from letters sent to each State Attorney General, requesting information on current state laws regarding chemical aerosol sprays used for self-defense.

    The following summary reflects the various laws on the sale and use of non-lethal spray weapons. In no way should this be regarded as the final word on the legal status of said laws.

    This report is not intended to take place of legal counsel nor should it be looked at as being any form of legal advice. Please check with your local authorities to obtain the latest information, as our politicians and bureaucrats have a tendency to change laws from one day to the next.

    Remember that Federal law prohibits the carrying of any type of chemical weapon on commercial aircraft, in federal buildings, prisons, and courts.

    We do not agree with any legislation that infringes on a person's right to self-protection, by whatever means he or she feels most comfortable with. In fact, we adamantly oppose most, if not all, such legislation. Unfortunately, we are required to abide by these restrictions, however inane they may be.

    Streetwise Pepper Spray FAQ

    What Is Pepper Spray?

    Our Streetwise Pepper Spray is a top selling brand of pepper spray. Pepper spray is generic name for a family of defense sprays which are, essentially, non-lethal chemical compounds that cause immediate and extreme inflammation when sprayed at an attacker, especially when aimed at the eyes and face.

    These inflammatory properties make pepper spray an ideal tool for personal self-defense, as well as crowd control and riot suppression.

    The primary ingredient in pepper spray is Oleoresin Capsicum (OC). This is also the chemical that makes chili peppers hot.

    Commercially available Pepper Spray is typically a combination of capsaicin, water, propylene glycol, and nitrogen or some other gas used as a propellant. Pepper spray is not always based on naturally occurring capsaicin. Some types of pepper sprays are made using synthetic substitutes of oleoresin capsicum..

    Regardless of the method used to produce it, when properly used, pepper spray has proven to be extremely effective as a self-defense tool and for crowd control and riot prevention.

    Federal, State & Local Laws – Batons

    To the best of our knowledge, at present there are no Federal restrictions on the purchase or possession of batons, expandable or otherwise.

    However, we cannot positively assert that claim as accurate. Nor can we speak to any State or Local statutes that may impact the sale or possession of batons.

    Therefore, we must state that it is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the purchase and/or possession of any of our self defense products is in compliance with any and all State and/or Local regulations.

    We do not agree with any legislation that infringes on a person's right to self-protection, by whatever means he or she feels most comfortable with. In fact, we adamantly oppose most, if not all, such legislation. Unfortunately, we are required to abide by these restrictions, however inane they may be.

    Federal, State & Local Laws – Recording Devices

    We know that Federal, State & Local codes and statutes can be confusing, and sometimes even contradictory. Furthermore, those laws are frequently changed, amended, or sometimes even repealed.

    Therefore, we must state that it is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the purchase and/or possession of any of our surveillance products is in compliance with any and all Federal, State and/or Local regulations.

    Given the aforementioned disclaimer(s), we will offer the following as a very general guideline concerning the purchase, ownership and use of covert surveillance equipment:

    • In most states, hidden video surveillance is legal, so long as it is not done in an area where reasonable privacy is expected. These areas include, but are not limited to, bathrooms, bedrooms and dressing rooms.
    • In most states video surveillance does not require the consent of the parties involved.
    • In some states, the use of audio recording or surveillance requires the consent of at least one, and sometimes all, of the parties involved.
    • There also may be various State or Local Laws regulating the use, and possession, of some types of audio surveillance equipment.
    • We recommend that you check all Federal, State and Local Laws regarding the use of video cameras with or without audio.
