.44 Caliber Gavel
Apparently, judicial ethics in NY do not prevent a judge from carrying concealed weapons while on the bench. Let's just hope the judge gets the right implement when reaching for the gavel, or else the judge may dispense some unexpectedly rough justice. And the equipment under a judge's robes keeps getting more and more interesting.
