Legal Restrictions on Batons
If you’re looking to purchase a baton, you need to check with your state and local laws and restrictions. Batons are legal in all states except California. There are some states such as Alabama where possession of an impact weapon is not illegal except if you intend to use it to do bodily harm. The state code lists batons as deadly weapons.
Some states regulate where you can carry batons, such as Texas. In Texas, you can’t bring any type of club into an airport, school, court, polling place, or club. The ever-popular stun batons are illegal in all states that have restrictions against stun devices, which includes Connecticut, Illinois, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. You should also know that these laws frequently change, with more states legalizing the use of stun devices, so always remain up to date on the laws in your area.
1. Expandable Batons
By far, the most popular and best-selling self-defense batons are the ones that expand or telescope from 10 inches to 26 inches at the flick of your wrist. These effective weapons are fantastic for impact strikes. There are other models in the same product line that expand from 6 5/8″ to 16″ and from 8″ to 21″. They are all made from high-quality black solid steel—the same kind of superior workmanship of the batons used by security guards and police officers around the world. Please note that these products are made in Taiwan and are far superior, according to our tests, than similar products made in China.
These batons all come with a nylon holster with a belt loop and are very cost-effective security solutions. It’s important to remember, when retracting the stun baton, you should use a hard surface such as concrete. Don’t use a wooden surface. You can damage the wood by striking it, as sometimes it takes a little force. Make sure to hold the baton in a vertical position; otherwise, you may damage it.
2. The Takedown Gear Keychain Baton
Second on our list of the best-selling batons is the Takedown Gear keychain baton. This super-accessible tiny baton extends from 5 1/2″ to 12″ with the flick of a wrist. The Takedown Gear baton is high-quality solid steel construction for durability. The built-in keychain means that it’s always at your service and ready to use. There is no more fumbling around in a deep purse looking for your self-defense weapon because it is easy to find. There’s no time to search for a weapon when a threat is imminent. You need to be able to react quickly, and this baton makes defending yourself easy.
3. Streetwise™ Barbarian LED Stun Gun Baton
This third baton is a triple threat, offering you protection in the form of not only a baton, but it also works as a stun gun and an LED flashlight. Offering you Triple Stun Technology that creates three loud sparks to intimidate attackers and is equipped with 9m-volts of electrifying stopping power, this 19” baton is a very reliable and easy to use self-defense weapon. And if a potential attacker is off in the distance, you can blind them in their tracks with the baton’s 3 watt CREE LED light. The Streetwise Barbarian LED Stun Gun Baton packs a big punch and is an efficient self-defense tool.
These three batons are the top three best-selling self-defense batons as rated by our customers. Law enforcement officers and civilians use regular, non-electrified batons for striking in situations where they feel threatened. Law enforcement officers can also use them for crowd control and subduing non-compliant suspects. Electrified batons or stun batons are useful self-defenses weapons used by civilians as a defense against human and dog attacks, but they are illegal in some states.
Batons are quite useful self-defense tools. If you’re looking for a durable and reliable self-defense weapon, the baton just may be a perfect choice. We’ve got a great selection of batons at excellent prices, so shop at The Home Security Superstore when you’re ready to purchase an excellent weapon to protect yourself.
