And these judges shouldn't go through the process to obtain a concealed carry license why???? Just because they don't want to pay the fee??

So when the are voted out or replaced, will they still be able to pack without a permit, or will they then have to go through the process to obtain a CC?

Here's an idea. Wave the fee while they are in office, but require them to go through the same process as the common folks.

When did magistrate start working the night shift? The state eliminated that "little" requirement about 20 years ago....

Part of the CC requirement is a gun safety class!

There's little constitutional justification for ANY "concealed carry" legislation. It's a right to own and bear a firearm. In any event, as long as we have these licensing laws, magistrates should have to complete a gun safety course before they receive such a permit. They also should have more than a high school education, but that's a separate issue!

Hard to imagine, former Magistrate Rose Humway carrying a 357?

policy should reveal agencies requiring employees to hold a license as condition of service and employment, simply reimburse the employee cost. No big deal. Shouldn't require any new law.
