    It is for an east coast state - but these kinds of rulings get included in other cases, and could make there way to the northwest.

    “This widespread acceptance of batons within the law enforcement community also supports the conclusion that they are not so dangerous or unusual as to fall outside the purview of the second amendment. To this end, the fact that police batons are inherently less lethal, and therefore less dangerous and less intrinsically harmful, than handguns, which clearly constitute “arms” within the meaning of the second amendment, provides further reason to conclude that they are entitled to constitutional protection.”

    The article also raises the question would Tasers / Stun guns also be protected by this reasoning.
