Thread: Jury duty

    Its very simple. No weapons are allowed in the court rooms for the safety of all involved in the court. A small knife may not be much of a weapon but it could definitely scare or intimidate the witnesses or anyone else.

    Imagine you were on the witness stand testifying against a gang member and all the other fellow gang members sat in the audience making threatening gestures with small knives that obviously represent large knives outside of the court room.

  3. Actually a better threat would be to simulate a gun pointed at them with your index finger extended & your thumb in the air. Simulate firing at them, blow the "smoke" away from the tip of your finger, & smile evilly at them.

    Because stupidity rules. We can only take back our country from the purveyors of "security theater" if you protest; if you vote out of office those that would subject you to this retarded infringement on your rights. If nobody questions why you are not allowed to have a 2 1/4" pen knife with you, then the herd mentality has won. They make it look real nice, down at the Post Office, and the bank; they have a chrome pole, and a velvety rope, but it's just a corral for making you moooooove.

    Did you carry the pocket knife in a belt pouch made by K and D holsters?

  6. Heed your wife's advise

    Heed your wife's advise next time. If you do not trust her, call before court and ask about restriction. Anytime you are in the vicinity of prisoners, law enforcement restricts the availability of weapons. Some prisoners are violent persons. The Bailiffs only want to worry about unlawful weapons.

    PS, If you mention that you routinely carry a firearm, you might be challenged as a juror. If you want to serve, keep quiet unless asked.

    That's too funny! No, and I think you know why.

    I'd be more intimidated by a guy holding a real knife and slowing sliding it across his neck from one side to the other.

    Just curious how do you define "weapon" for humans can use their limbs as weapons. And this is were the problem lyes everyday objects and items can be used as weapons if one should chose to use them as a weapon.
