Random question: Are brass knuckles legal in Indiana?
I saw some sitting in the back window of a parked car earlier today. I always thought since they have but one purpose people weren't allowed to carry them.

Nothing in the Indiana Code mentions them. I believe they used to be illegal but not anymore. Only thing I could find is automatic knives, Chinese stars, sawed-off shotguns, and a couple of other things.Admit nothing, Deny everything, Demand proof, and Make counter-accusations!

I did a ride a long a few years ago and the cop i was with confiscated a pair from a guy he arrested and then gave them to me. I used them to beat on the starter of my old toyota until i sold it. They have more than one purposeWar to the knife and knife to the hilt.

Not illegal to own or carry. Might be an enhancement to charging if used in a crime, though.

I've seen them sold at various gun shows as "brass paperweights"

Probably marketing to give them that extra little "I'm getting away with something naughty" appeal. If they were illegal to possess calling them paperweights wouldn't really matter.
"Are those brass knuckles?"
"No, they are metallic paperweights that are shaped in such a fashion you could potentially slip them over your fingers and punch something, but they are only intended to weight papers.
"Oh, ok, you're good then."
"Is that marijuana?"
"No, its a green leafy dehydrated organic mulch that, while containing THC, is not to be used for smoking.
"Oh, ok. You're good then."

"Is that crack?"
"No, its a white rocklike substance that is more yellowish in color due to the cutting agent, of which this is primarily made from of a baking soda substance that may test positive for the presence of cocaine in trace amounts, but I was going to use the baking soda portion for a recipe- not smoking it for a high."
