    This week’s revelation by the Vancouver Columbian that a Clark County Superior Court judge has decided to carry a defensive firearm nearly everywhere but the courtroom has stirred considerable public interest.

    Clark Co. judge
    Much better than carrying a ball-peen hammer.

    I thought it was well-documented that one big deterrent for BG's was whether the target was armed or not.

    Yes, years back before TX passed its CHL laws, we had the odd circumstance that certain public officials in dangerous or potentially dangerous jobs were unable to carry. I seem to recall an incident in which a legislator was attacked. I know there were complaints from DAs and Mayors. The old law here simply didn't allow for the common sense approach to allowing folks who become targets of nut jobs and revenge seekers to carry.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
