Dan Rodricks states that it is likely that due to a recent federal court decision Marylanders will be able to carry weapons legally ("Adapting to the newest form of gun insanity," July 24). If judges feel that this is a constitutional right, then why aren't folks allowed to carry weapons into court house, police stations or the legislature?

It's OK to have one in a Starbucks, but not a court room? The very people who are making these decisions are the ones who are keeping their own place of work safe, aren't they?
