Spitzer says eBay to halt stun gun sales in NY

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York Attorney General Eliot
Spitzer said on Tuesday that Internet auction company eBay Inc.
has agreed to take steps to block the sale to New Yorkers of
stun guns like those made by Taser International.

"State law specifically prohibits possession of stun guns
and related weapons," Spitzer said in a release. "This
agreement will help ensure that the Internet is not used to
facilitate illegal activity."
