More Judges Carry Guns After Atlanta Shooting

JONESBORO, Ga. -- More judges in Georgia are packing guns following a shooting that left three people dead at an Atlanta courthouse.

The sheriff of one county said since then officers have given guns to eight Superior and State Court judges. Police said some judges have also asked for some firearms training.

State law allows judges to carry guns in court. And one judge said while a few of his colleagues have always carried weapons, more are now bringing their own guns to work.

One judge said he likes having his gun with him because it gives him "a great deal of confidence" that he'll complete the day.
