The Best Stun Gun blog (no, really) reports that a man has been fined in Edinburgh Sheriff Court for importing an illegal stun gun.
South African Vernon White (73), by all accounts was visiting some friends in the Veldt. They decided that returning to Leith would be too risky for him without some kind of protection and gave him the weapon for his own self-defence. However, it was discovered by officials on his return to the UK when … he told them he had it.
Sheriff Reith issued a modest fine.
