I am not a lawyer. My answers are based on research, knowledge, and are generally backed up with facts, the Ohio Revised Code, or the United States Code.

Holier than thou. Lawyers in suits (at the statehouse) create a special exemption for lawyers in robes (at the courthouses).
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Judges are exempt....


And the shooting happened outside the courthouse, so "in court" wouldn't apply.

I don't wear a robe, not even at bath time.

I don't wear a robe, but I do wear a gun. And that will continue until the ones in robes promulgate a local rule which doesn't allow them to carry, either.
