    Dayton signs off on armed prosecutors

    ------------------

    Prosecutors with valid Carry Permits can now carry during the work day (takes effect this coming Monday).
    Interestingly, prior to this, while Prosecutors were barred from carrying, Public Defenders were not.

    When I was the elected prosecutor in Amarillo, myself and every one of my assistant prosecutors was a Certified Texas Peace Officer under TCLOSE. They all carried 24/7. Being a prosecutor can be a dangerous job.

    Yep...in my county, the DA indicted 23 MS-13 gang members a couple of years ago. As you could guess, the threats followed on him and his ADAs.

    I can see where putting scumbags in the can, can upset them more than trying to keep them out...:supergrin:

    Except that those in the three most populous counties can not carry at any courthouse anyway. There is a loophole saying that the Chief Judge can enforce any regulations within the courthouse and no one wants to be the test case. Currently I can not carry in a county library or a local city hall, two places that by law can't post, because they share a parking lot with a satellite court facility.
