Today we filed a Taser challenge against the City of New Orleans

You can read the Complaint here.

New Orleans Municipal Code § 54-1 defines a stun gun or a Taser as a destructive device. “The term ‘destructive device’ shall include … c. Any device designed or redesigned, made or remade, or readily converted or restored, and intended to stun or disable a person by means of electric shock.” Id. This same statute includes stun gun in the definition of a “weapon.” New Orleans Municipal Code § 54-339 provides that “[i]t shall be unlawful for anyone knowingly to: (1) Sell, manufacture, purchase, possess or carry any … stungun.”

We additionally allege that the Taser ban is unconstitutional under Louisiana's Constitution, art. 1, § 11.
