No, a felon may not own or possess one. The pertinent section of the law is highlighted. § 908.1. Use or possession of electric or electronic incapacitation device… (c) Prohibited possession.--No person prohibited from possessing a firearm pursuant to section 6105 (relating to persons not to possess, use, manufacture, control, sell or transfer firearms) may possess or use an electric or electronic incapacitation device.

Use of stun gun is legal for the police. Its use is widespread mainly in the Municipal Guards, who receive professional training in the use of electro-conductive pistols. Stun… guns are also used by the police and specialized forces. There are laws allowing their use by private security companies, but not for personal use.
More carry real guns. Basically all police officers carry guns. Not every officer carries a stun gun. For instance, the city where I live, which is a large city, does not issu…e stun guns, and neither does the county.
Yes, you can carry a stun gun in Arkansas. They are perfectly legal.
In Federal Laws
Answer 1: In many states, even persons who haven't been convicted of federal felonies -- or anything else, for that matter -- can't use stun guns; and that's because stun guns… are just plain illegal in those states. So, then, in at least those states, the fact that there may or may not have been a prior federal felony conviction (or even a state one) is irrelevant. In states where stun guns are legal, though, it may, indeed, matter. But that -- and this is important -- would be up to the state, not the federal government. Stun gun usage is a state, not a federal, matter. And every state's laws are different. In some states which allow the use of stun guns, anyone convicted of any kind of felony -- whether a federal one, or a state one -- may well not be allowed. In other states which allow the use of stun guns, not only felons, but also even those convicted of misdemeanors might not be allowed. In yet other states which allow the use of stun guns, there may be no restrictions. It all, again, depends on the state. The questioner will need to consult the laws of his/her state; and since no state was specified in the question, it's impossible to fully answer, as asked.
The states in which it is illegal to carry a stun gun are Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, as well as the District of Columbia.
That depends on the local laws. In some areas they are considered non-lethal weapons and permitted for use in private security. In other areas they are considered lethal a…nd only government officials are allowed to use them. Even where they are permitted, they may require a license.
