    Is it legal for someone in NY to carry around an ASP type baton in their car/house? What about on their person?

    so, as the weapon in question is a type of "bludgeon" as defined by New York State laws, you would be guilty of misdemeanor criminal possession, 4th degree. this is whether the item is in your immediate possession.

    as for in your car, if NY defines your car as an extension of your household like as in Florida, Louisiana, or Texas, then you may carry the weapon in your car.

    if NY defines your car as an extension of your person, like any of the many liberal east and west coast states, then you may NOT carry the weapon in your car.
