Where Can I Buy a Shillelagh?


HB 1009 was recently introduced in the Maryland State House:

SECTION 1. BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF MARYLAND, That
the Laws of Maryland read as follows:

Article — State Government

13—322.

THE SHILLELAGH IS THE STATE WALKING STICK OF STATESMEN AND
GENTLEMEN.

SECTION 2. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That this Act shall take effect
October 1, 2009.

If this passes, I’m afraid that I don’t know where to get a
shillelagh. I bet there are specialized stores, though. Anyone got any
pointers?

On the other hand, maybe I don’t need to worry: I’m definitely not a
statesman, and arguably not a gentleman.

    Yeah, you’d know, wouldn’t you?

    (Though it looks as though I anticipated your answer, and answered my own question, since the photo above links to their site.)
