Another great RKBA analysis from the Volokh Conspiracy (http://volokh.com/archives/archive_2009_01_11-2009_01_17.shtml#1231789616) discusses a Nassau County, New York policy that prohibits its Assistant District Attorneys from owning or possessing a handgun while employed by the DA.

Clearly, the citizens of Nassau County will be protected from the scourge of crime related to gun-toting Assistant DAs, long a well-recognized source of crime and violence in New York :rolleyes:

Initially, it looks like the law may actually violate New York Labor Laws, to say nothing of offering a meaty bite for someone looking for a good Second Amendment case.

Soo Law enforcement personnel who perhaps know the law the best...can't carry a weapon?
