I, like most of you all, hate being disarmed while at a public gathering and it seems that I am on a never ending quest to find the right weapon that is effective at stopping a BG, but yet public gathering "safe". I turned my attention now to bludgeon type weapons. More specifically a 16 inch Fury collapsible baton I bought while in Florida. These types of weapons are legal to carry in Florida with your firearms license, but here in Georgia its a little different story. The only law I can find that even pertains to collapsible batons is in 16-11-126, which describes it as a "bludgeon" or blunt force type weapon. So it is illegal to carry a bludgeon type weapon concealed, but okay to carry it openly. What about public gatherings? Is a bludgeon in the eyes of the law consdiered a deadly weapon or just a dangerous weapon? What is everyone else's opinions on this? Is a bludgeon a deadly weapon? and if not would you consider it public gathering safe to carry?
