Be over the age of 18. If under 18, live in a state whose laws allow you to own a stun gun (these include Kentucky, Maine and Alabama).
Live in a state with few or no restrictions on the ownership and use of stun guns, which include the states named in Step 1, as well as Arizona, Texas, Utah and others.
Familiarize yourself with the stun gun laws in your home state, if you are unwilling to relocate. Be willing to obtain a weapons permit or license, depending on local laws. Do not carry your stun gun into places where it may be prohibited, such as gaming or liquor establishments or schools.
