    Legality of Baton Carry in NC

    I am considering adding a baton to my carry in areas where CCW of a gun is permitted in NC. Obviously still won't be able take it into government buildings and a few other common sense areas but was more thinking those restaurants where alcohol is sold and consumed, places where an admission is charged (those stupid areas where carry is permitted in NC). I have had some training in the past and feel confident in the use of the baton.

    Anyone have any references to the legalities of this in NC? The best I can see in the NC statutes is the following:
    A. Carrying Concealed Weapons
    North Carolina law strictly controls the ability of individuals to carry weapons concealed. Except under the limited concealed handgun permit provisions of state law, described in Sections III. B and III. C of this publication, it is unlawful for any person in North Carolina, except when on his or her own premises, to willfully and intentionally carry concealed, either on or about his or her person, any "Bowie Knife, dirk, dagger, slingshot, loaded cane, metallic knuckles, razor, shurikin, stungun, or other deadly weapon of like kind. Specifically exempted from the requirements of this law are ordinary pocket knives carried in a closed position. An ordinary pocket knife is defined as being "a small knife, that is designed to be carried in a pocket or purse, which has its cutting edge and point entirely enclosed by its handle. The knife must not be capable of being opened by a
    throwing, explosive, or spring action." N.C. Gen. Stat. 14-269

    I am guessing the baton falls under the "other deadly weapon of like kind" but wanted some addition opinions.

    I think batons are a great weapon but not sure
    its a good idea to carry one. If you had the legal right
    to use one in a self defense situation it would probably
    just be best to use a firearm instead anyway.

    I would think if you were wearing a cheerleader outfit you could carry a baton anywhere you wanted,I remember getting thumped with them more than once and they will put a pot knot on your head

    Keep in mind that NC has a Concealed Handgun Permit, handguns only. So if you could it may have to be carried openly. I have heard that you cannot carry a baton, ie ASP. But can't put my finger on that. Pepper spray and kubatons sp? are a go.

    Here is the GS site. Might be able to search it. My search came up empty.
