Is it illegal to carry an expandable/extendable baton in the state of Indiana?

1 Answer 1


Indiana has no state law against carrying an expandable baton, a.k.a. asp. (Hard to prove a negative, but here's one reference in support.) NB: Batons are considered deadly weapons.

NBB: Laws on these weapons vary tremendously by state, and sometimes even by city, so this answer should not be construed to apply to any jurisdiction outside of Indiana!

    Not only can the laws vary widely, but enforcement of those laws will also vary, even within individual agencies. Sep 13, 2015 at 15:22
