I have problem thoery
First why stander Starfleet security not armed stun baton. Again hand phaser can be lethal close range.
Second it fail explain why United Earth would give MACO stun baton stand equipment. With no way turn it ieven into lethal weapon. My theory that MACO closer to anti terror special forces. Were for political reason they often did not use lethal force.
A gun/phaser isn't always easy to handle, especially at very close range. Not to mention that they probably don't have their phasers set to stun all the time, grabbing a stun baton and whacking/jabbing someone with the business end would be easier/more sure than trying to draw a phaser, hopefully aim it in the right direction, and pull the trigger, hopefully not getting any kind of 'splash back' from being that close to your target.
