    Clark Co. judge’s carry decision makes news, but why?

    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.

    Out side of court, he is just normal person like others. So why not? There are crazy people that goes after judge, who are not happy with their outcome.

    Why not in the courtroom too? I would if they'd let me. As I understand it the Judge is allowed to carry in the courthouse.

    Oregon fortunately makes it difficult to find out who has a CHL. If I wanted to advertise the fact, I'd open carry. I carry concealed because I don't want to advertise it. I applaud the judge's decision. It's regrettable that it was determined to be "newsworthy".

    The "Judge" is probably just being polite. If Taurus made a revolver that said "Mat33" on the barrel, supersized it in a few NRA ads, and exploded watermelons with it, you can bet I'd carry it.
