When it comes to self defense laws nearly all states permit some use of deadly force in order for a person to protect themselves inside their home, which is based on the ‘Castle Doctrine.’ However, while some areas require a person to retreat from an attacker outside of their home, there are more and more states expanding their laws in order to increase a person’s safety and legal rights if they happen to be outside of their homes too.

Previously in Ohio, if a homeowner was subjected to an intruder inside their home they were required to retreat before using deadly force against the suspect.

Stun Guns Laws in Illinois

stun gun laws illinoisIn most states, the use of stun guns is permitted for home protection, although many of the states place harsh restrictions on them outside of the home, often prohibiting a person to carry or possess them in public.

In 2005, Gov. Blagojevich signed into law Senate Bill 1962, which states that for an individual to own a stun gun or TASER, they must first have a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID), making Illinois the first state to do so.

Consequently, in the state of Illinois, while the use of stun guns is legal, the legality of them comes with restrictions. The Illinois State Police state under the Criminal Code of 1961, Article 24, Section 2(a)(1) that “No person may require or possess any firearm, stun gun, or Taser within this State without having in his or her possession a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card previously issued in his or her name by the Department of State Police under the provisions of this Act.”
