BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore City council voted to legalize the use of stun guns and tasers.

The bill allows city residents to own and use the devices for self-defense — with some restrictions.

This comes after people in Baltimore County, Howard County, and Baltimore City filed a federal lawsuit challenging stun gun bans.

Both Howard County and Baltimore County also voted to lift their bans.
