Default Stun Gun into Mexico

I promise that I did a search first, so if this has been hashed already, just point me in the right direction.

I've read everything I can find from the embassy and the mexican consulate but all they talk about are guns and ammo. I like my stun gun. I've never used it but I could and feel very comfortable carrying it.

Now, is it forbidden, illegal or just downright dumb to take it into Mexico when I move down there. Just 4 days now . . .

I hope someone has the answers.

Can you believe it was only June when I decided to do this thing; 5 short months seemed to drag once I'd made up my mind. Just the planning and the doing. And now, OMG, 3 days and 15 hours and it's all coming so fast. I know I'm going to be spastic for a few weeks so please put up with me. I'll settle down and smile.

Jo,
Leave it behind unless you relish a long and expensive residence in a Mexican prison.

I can't imagine why the OP would want to carry a stun gun anywhere. I'm not criticizing, just wondering . . .

I also wonder about that and the expressed concerns for safety, getting a dog immediately, etc. Maybe she is timid & doesn't realize that she'll probably be a lot safer in Mexico than in the USA.
Who knows?

I live alone in big bad Mexico City in a small apartment building without a doorman and feel quite safe here. Though I'd love to have a dog, it would be for companionship, not protection.

No kidding . . . I've carried a stun gun for years; never used it except to frighten dogs, but I like knowing I can reach it if I need it. As for a dog, I don't want a guard dog; I want a dog that likes to snuggle, since I've given up macho hombres for Lent.

And lastly, I'm right here, stop talking about me in the third person.

Have a nice day!

I didn't know how to include more than one "quote" in my reply. No offense taken and I have much to learn. Like, I live today like there may be no tomorrow. The "tal vez maņana" crowd will irritate me until I learn to accept the attitude. ". . . the serenity to accept the things I cannot change." This is going to be a fantastic learning experience.

I gave my stun gun to a friend here.
