Regarding carrying a stun gun in my hand when I am outside.

Customer Question

regarding carrying a stun gun in my hand when I am outside. I live in Clark County, Las Vegas, NV. My family is gone and I am not alone, without a car, and unfortunately the crime rate in Vegas is awful.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I want to know if carrying a stun gun on my person is legal?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $36 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Don't bother me with your "legal minds" - more like "criminal minds"...

Thank you for your question.

Yes, it is legal as long as you are not in a prohibited category, see

http://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/resources/stun-gun-laws-nevada.htm

and do not carry it in prohibited location, such as a courthouse.

Carrying it in your hand all the time might upset or scare some people so it may be better to keep it in an easily accessible pocket.

I hope this information is helpful.
