Is it illegal to carry a baseball bat in the car?
 
What about a golf club? My buddy says its the same.:confused:

yes. it is.

The police see it like this. Anything that can be a weapon, is a weapon. Carrying a weapon is illeagal.

Having said that, i'd rather take my chances with the cops than with whoever i'd be using the bat against. And its not exactly like i welcome cops to search my car...

just keep some baseballs, a glove and toronto blue jays hat, and it will look less suspicious

Do you plan to hit someone with it, and get charged with assault with a weapon and serve time in jail?

This isn't Ukraine!

lol

Haha... really eh? I did not know this... I have 2 of them in my car behind the driver's seat... and I've had to pull them out before...

I had a knife that they almost took away in my trunk a long time ago (not there anymore)

I keep a bat in there though.

It's a free country, they can suck my balls if I like to be prepared for a baseball game. (wink)

Please show me the law that states its illegal? What kind of a country do you think we live in? Most of the time i carry a m16-14sf knife on me, a weapon is defined as a tool used to harm someone else, just because i have a knife/bat/golf club doesnt mean im going to use it to harm someone else. Ill challenge any police officer anyday of the week on this subject, there is no law against carrying an item. Hell did you even know a person can carry a rifle as long as the magazine is out of the rifle, the mag can hold ammunition and be in the person pocket while the rifle on the persons back, yes, im not shitting you, its legal, might get you looks, but its legal. Note for this example you have to have your firearms licence to acquire said rifle.

Ignorance =/= law

Too hard to impose it.

I have a cricket bat, field hockey stick 2 tennis rackets and a baseball glove in my trunk. I have never played cirket or field hockey in my life. Car has been searched and never got hassled (apart from a few questions)

i carry a flip knife in my door panel... when i drove a truck i used to carry a tire bud under the seat. the same thing the truckers use to check their tire pressure. cop questioned me about it once and i just said i use to to check my tire pressure and he was fine with that.

I don't engage in road rage, I just press the buttom to activate power and leave the scene..

:D

I don't understand why so many of you carry this stuff and never use it. What is your intention? It's as though down the road you anticipate the probability of encountering a confrontation at some point. If you keep this sort of thought in your mind or even in the back of your mind long enough eventually you'll attract this situation. Is this something you really want?
