Today we filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn Annapolis' stun gun/Taser ban

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Jeff Hulbert, Firearms Policy Coalition and Firearms Policy Foundation in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division. The lawsuit was filed against Mike Pantelides as Mayor of Annapolis, Maryland; Michael Pristoop as Chief of Police of Annapolis, Maryland; and The City of Annapolis.

The lawsuit seeks the following relief:

  1. An order preliminarily and permanently enjoining Defendants, their officers, agents, servants, employees, and all persons in active concert or participation with them who receive actual notice of the injunction, from enforcing Annapolis Ordinance 11.44.070 to ban the acquisition, possession, carrying or use of Tasers and other electronic arms;

  2. An order declaring that Annapolis Ordinance 11.44.070 is unconstitutional and violates the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution;

  3. An order declaring Annapolis Ordinance 11.44.070 unenforceable;

  4. Costs of suit, including attorney fees and costs pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §1988;

  5. Damages to be determined at trial;

  6. Such other Declaratory relief consistent with the injunction as appropriate; and

  7. Such other further relief as the Court deems just and appropriate.
