    I imagine it is the same as at King Co Courthouse in Seattle.

    Advise Deputy you are carrying, they will escort you to the lockers, fill out a form, check the weapon, escort you back to the metal detector and then you go through it.

    Shouldn't be any problem, just give yourself a little extra time.

    Have you personally done this?

    If so, did they required you to provide ID in order to check/retrieve your sidearm?

    Used to do it every day when I worked in the County Courthouse in downtown Seattle. The RJC is essentially a satellite of the Courthouse, KCSO does security at both.

    I would expect ID is required, it's been a few years so I can't say for sure.

    I left mine in the car last time I was there, but had to go through the check-in process with my knives. I can't give you any details on how a firearm would be checked, but they seemed to have their act together.

    That's interesting, because I would consider required proof of ownership more restrictive than state law, and the wording of 9.41.300 makes no mention of requiring identification. It simply states "the local legislative authority shall provide either a stationary locked box sufficient in size for pistols and key to a weapon owner for weapon storage, or shall designate an official to receive weapons for safekeeping, during the owner's visit to restricted areas of the building"

    I found it kind of interesting that they tried to use the same argument Nickels has used with his gun ban. The guy in the audio tried the "well it isn't a law, it is a rule" garbage which is exactly the thing that these municipalities are trying to state is one reason their bans are lawful.
