I'd like to investigate one of the lesser known exceptions in 16-11-130, specifically 16-11-130(a)(15) which states. When I read this the first thing that I thought was "WHY?" Why does a state trial court clerk earn the ability to be exempt from 126-128. I bring this up because one of the jobs that I would like to get after graduation from law school is as a Law Clerk for a Federal Trial or Appellate Judge. And before checking 16-11-130 I at least had the hope that clerks for federal courts would receive an exemption, just like Federal Judges do. I can't comprehend how a State Trial Court Clerk's job would be so special as to warrant exceptions from the other carry laws. And how is a state trial court clerk's peril any different from that of a Federal trial court clerk or a state or federal appellate level clerk for that matter? I just don't get it.
