If you look through the restrictions, TSA won't let you take most things that would make an effective bludgeon on board. No golf clubs, baseball bats, ski poles, hammers, wrenches, large flashlights, etc. There are exceptions for medically necessary items like canes and crutches.

As for ORD being lax on such things, collegues of mine and I have had similar experiences where ORD allowed tools or large flashlights in carry-on for an outbound flight, but TSOs at other airports required them to be checked on the return.
