    Just saw this, too late to attend. Anyone else going, looks like you'll be denied right to carry into meeting.

    Unfortunately, I don't think the courthouse prohibition contains an exception for non-court related use of the facility. I bet if they had their supervisor's meeting in a non-courthouse setting, they would know better.

    Of course, from reading the article, it sounds like they are pretty scared of their constituents.

    It is my understanding that this is no longer an active courthouse. Name only but I may be wrong.
    Yes I carry a Bible and a Gun, your point.
    Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos (meaning: "A defence of liberty against tyrants")
    Benjamin Franklin said, "A government that does not trust it's citizens with guns is a government that should not be trusted."
