Judge: State Ban On Stun Guns Unconstitutional 4-22-2011

A Michigan judge says the state's law prohibiting possession of stun guns is unconstitutional.
In an opinion issued Thursday, Bay County Circuit Court Judge Joseph K. Sheeran dismissed weapons charges against a 41-year-old Bay City man arrested and accused of carrying a stun gun.
Sheeran said the ban violates the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.
Assistant Prosecutor J. Dee Brooks said he will ask a state Court of Appeals to review Sheeran's opinion.
Dean S. Yanna was wearing the device on his belt for protection last June while working the night shift at Old Town Party Store in Bay City.
Yanna's court-appointed lawyer said Sheeran's ruling was an important decision for Second Amendment rights.
Yanna told WNEM TV5 he hopes the charge will be dropped, along with the $10,000 personal bond.
