Code Enforcement Officers are law enforcement officers and recognized by the courts as such. Instead of enforcing the state's motor vehicle code and crimes code, they enforce the PA Uniform Building Code. Why should they not be able to protect themselves?

Yes but Mr. Weatherly is a fireman, I hope he got some training in using that thing. He's a good guy though, doubt he will ever use it. Went to school with his son.
