Collapsable metal batons. I asked a few law enforcement officers on this, & their reply was that proper training is need for these, & they don't believe civilians can carry them. ...Scratching head, thinking, I am permitted & carry a lethal force weapon - pistol, what's the difference? In addition,is a collapsable metal baton considered a concealed weapon, as compared to having a 3 D cell Mag Light flashlight on my belt. Basically, to simplify this, if I go into a bar & have a collapsable metal baton on me, am I in violation as if I was carrying my pistol? Thanks.
