Absolutely salute and support the Judge in his decision to conceal carry in his county vehicle. The goes for all other legal, conceal carry employes. Remember, we usually only have 3 or so deputies on at any one time on county roads so you might just have to depend on that fellow citizen intervening and saving you, or your loved ones, lives. I was trained initially as a military policeman, served 3 years with the Arizona National Guard, 20 years on active duty with the Regular Army and another 20 years as a Dept of Defense Civil Servant. As one who believes in helping defend his fellow man I'm mentally prepared to help when I have to.
