The district attorney of one New York county is prohibiting prosecutors from owning a handgun -- a rule some law experts claim is unconstitutional.

The Nassau County District Attorney's Office on New York's Long Island bars its prosecutors from possessing a handgun, even at home, unless a special exception is made by the Acting District Attorney, Madeline Singas, according to an application for employment.

"[A]ssistant district attorneys are not permitted to apply for a handgun permit nor own or possess a handgun while employed by the Nassau County District Attorney. Any exception to this policy must be in writing and approved by the District Attorney," the application states

Some cities/counties just never get tired of paying out lawsuits. The county will be sued, they will lose, they will use tax payers money to pay the everybody's legal fees, all because some idiot District Attorney wants to infringe upon the rights of the ADA's that work their. Why would anybody vote for this a$$hat.

It sounds blatantly unconstitutional.

The Nassau County District Attorney's Office did not return requests for comment when contacted Monday. In a statement provided to Volokh, the office said, "Our practice of asking prosecutors to not possess handguns is to ensure the safety and comfort of staff, victims, and witnesses, and is consistent with other district attorney’s offices in the New York City metropolitan area."
Does anyone think that this is "ASKING"...

Wealthy people with no means of protecting themselves. What could go wrong.

New York could just do what San Francisco did and force all gun stores out of business by creating ridiculous regulations.

These anti-gun wackos are outta control. You almost wanna see armed thugs break into one of these liberal nut-job's house and rob them at gunpoint.

They know it will take months or even years for these lawsuits to happen and that most aspiring prosecutors will simply not go through the trouble to fighting for their 2nd amendment rights.

Thumbs up Re: District Attorney on New York's Long Island bans prosecutors from owning guns

This unconstitutional ban was rescinded on Sept. 30:

Quote:
Assistant District Attorneys are permitted to own and possess a legally registered handgun in their homes or for legally permitted activity unrelated to their employment and workplace. Any Assistant District Attorney who as a result of this policy change acquires a handgun is encouraged to take a firearm safety course.
