NY Advisory Committee Ruled Judges Can Carry Firearms While Working

From washingtonpost.com: The New York state Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics has ruled that it is permissible for judges to pack a pistol beneath their robes while on the bench.

"From an ethical standpoint, there is no prohibition ... barring you from carrying a firearm while performing your duties on the bench. This committee believes that keeping your firearm concealed and safeguarded on your person while you are on the bench is advisable," the committee said in a decision published in this week's New York Law Journal.
