No. Tasers and stun guns are not legally allowed on California State College campuses. Your daughter needs to report her stalker to the campus police and, for that matter to the regular police that serve the jurisdiction where the college is located. As part of any prosecution, she would be given a protective order.

Alternatively she could go to civil court and get an emergency ex-parte civil harassment restraining order.
