Can I be arrested for defending myself with a weapon?

Illegal Weapons and the Self Defense Plea

Not all self defense weapons available are legal in every state. Before purchasing a weapon, research your state laws or talk to local law enforcement officials to make sure you have a full understanding of your rights and responsibilities. Some self defense weapons may be legal but only if properly registered. If you use an illegal weapon during an attack, you could find yourself in trouble with police even if you claim self defense. Your best bet is to only buy and carry what is legal in your area. Then only use a self defense weapon if you have the proper training. This protects you from injury during an attack as well as avoids legal troubles regarding your self defense methods.
