    Open carry on a jury

    Should this American citizen be allowed to open carry his bladed weapon while serving on a jury?:

    Is he a free man? Then yes. Why not?

    If he known to be dangerous he should already be separated from the general population....until one violates a law that has meaning, the RKBA is sacrosanct.

    I'm generally far more impressed by Sikhism than I am by courts these days, or the particular subset of laws they deem worthy of enforcement.

    By virtue of his citizenship, not his religion.

    For the same reason, I oppose allowing anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, to wear anything other than a standard uniform while in the U.S. Military.

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    What could military attire possibly have to do with court room etiquette?

    Courts have ruled bans on wearing Kirpan as unconstitutional. A compromise with NYC Board of Education allowed wear of a Kirpan secured useless in its sheath by an adhesive. http://sikhcoalition.org

    I believe the miltitary should be made up of voluntary militia. Not the Prussian model that was thrust upon us by George Washington and other conservatives.
