Are stun guns legal in the UK?
HM Revenue & Customs helps to protect society from the
threat of weapons in the same way it tackles drugs offences - by
stopping illegal imports as they come into the country.
British law has always been very strict about who can own or
move firearms, ammunition and explosives. . .
It is against the law to import:
- High voltage electric 'stun guns'.
- Pepper sprays, CS gas canisters and other self defence
- High-powered air rifles.
- Martial Arts weapons such as death stars and swordsticks.
- Knives that have a concealed blade or a sharp point such as
belt buckle blades.
Importation is illegal and is normally dealt with in Magistrates
court. Importation AND possession is often dealt with at Crown
Magistrates can fine and imprison up to 6 months. Crown court
can result in up to 7 years imprisonment. . .
