Michigan Senate to Vote on Bill to Lift State Stun Gun Ban

The Michigan Senate is expected to vote on a bill that would lift a state ban on stun gun possession and sales.

Right now, Michigan state law allows law enforcement and people with a concealed pistol license to use Tasers, but not stun guns.

Under the proposed legislation, people 18 and older would be allowed to buy a stun gun.

The bill easily cleared the state House Tuesday.

Supporters say it offers a non-deadly alternative to guns.
