Some nine months ago, Clarksville, Indiana town judge Jimmie Guilfoyle banned weapons from his courtroom. While Guilfoyle was within his legal rights to do so, local gun rights supporters were livid. The ban put the entire town hall off-limits to residents packing heat. According to wdrb.com, “a special committee voted to separate the court from the rest of the building.” The town will now wall-off the courtroom at a cost of $25,000. Guilfoyle’s quote on the “compromise” is comedy gold . . .
“The result that we came to were they happy with it? I don’t believe so. Was I completely happy with it? No. Do they agree with me? No and do I agree with them? No, but if everybody’s leaving the negotiating table slightly unhappy, we probably reached the best result there was.”
Is that how Hoosiers think?
