Stun Guns, Defense Sprays, Tasers

Stun Guns and Defense Sprays


Stun guns and defense sprays (such as pepper spray) are exempt from the definition of “dangerous weapons” and therefore you do not need a concealed weapon license to carry those items concealed (e.g., in a purse or bag, under clothing, under the vehicle seat or in the vehicle’s glove box) within North Dakota.





A Taser that only delivers a single application of voltage is not considered a dangerous weapon and may be carried without a concealed weapon license.  However, if the Taser is capable of delivering multiple applications of voltage, you must have a concealed weapon license.
