Under Minnesota law, energy-conducted weapons are called “electronic incapacitation devices” (EICs) and are regulated in the same chapter as tear gas and tear gas compounds.
In Minnesota, a person may possess and use an EIC with reasonable force to defend him or herself or his or her property, without a permit.
Persons under the age of 18, as well as persons who are prohibited from possessing a firearm, may not possess or use an EIC. Minnesota law also prohibits the use of an EIC against a peace officer. When used in the commission of a crime, an EIC is considered a weapon.
