Hulbert v. Pantelides, filed Thursday in federal district court, claims that Annapolis's ban on stun guns violates the Second Amendment; I'm pleased to say that I'll be consulting a bit on this litigation. For more on recent developments in stun gun law, see this post; for more on the general Second Amendment issue, see this article and, of course, the Supreme Court's decision in Caetano v. Massachusetts.
