Never knew about this distinction! But something is in the air for me — I just read that batons would get you in trouble, you were better off with a bat or a flashlight. (I was looking up side batons or tonfa, thinking maybe I need something in the house just in case.)

Oh yeah, cops really fucked people over for it. But if you're going for in home and melee, id go for either a Gladius, or hammer.

The batons that really will get you in trouble are the telescoping variety. I don't think anybody would bat an eye at an old fashioned billy club. Or get an old school Maglite with the 4 D cell battery capability. Dual purpose and completely legal.
