Michigan residents trained and licensed to carry concealed pistols will be able to possess and use an electro-muscular disruption device under legislation approved Wednesday by the House.

An EMD is defined as a device that delivers a shock through probes attached to wires and is commonly known as a stun gun or the brand name Taser.

“I respect that many people are not comfortable carrying a gun,” said Johnson, R-Clare. “Tasers offer a self-defense option for personal protection that is non-lethal to the assailant but gives the victim enough time to get away from the danger and seek help.

The legislation subjects stun gun use to the same requirements and prohibitions as a concealed pistol.
