County Prosecutors Barred From Owning Guns

posted on September 23, 2015

According to the Nassau County, N.Y., District Attorney’s Office application form, prosecutors are barred from possessing a handgun, even at home. The application reads, “Assistant 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.” 

When asked by the Washington Post about the policy, the office responded, saying, “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.” 

Prosecutors spend their days locking up the most dangerous in our society, often threatened by criminals and their associates. Despite their justifications, Nassau County has made its prosecutors less safe and more vulnerable to the criminals who decide to make good on those threats.
