And after doing some additional poking around in CT statutes on-line, I see that CT outlaws the carrying of even defensive weapons (and even describes them as "defensive" weapons) such as stun guns or police batons. That would be a problem for me -- I photograph firearms at ranges, and I carry a large box of photo props. Part of the props is a complete police duty belt rig, in case I do a (photo) shoot of a duty-type weapon. The duty belt includes handcuffs and a collapsing baton. I suppose in CT that could get me arrested as a terrorist trying to impersonate a cop.

replica badge probably wouldn't go over too well, either.
