    I got a quick question regarding district courts. I have jury duty coming up, and I know about RCW 9.41.300 and how they have provisions to keep you gun while you're in the secured areas of the courthouse. However, does that apply to district courts? They are federal buildings, no? Or does that not matter?

    Thanks!

    Federal courts have no such requirement.

    About a year ago I inquired of the Federal court in Seattle (I was considering attending some kind of seminar there). They do have handgun storage facilities but they are for law enforcement only.

    Not all district courts are federal. Which are you going to?

    Yep, THAT one is Federal... I do not believe they provide facilities for your weapon. Being federal, the state law doesn't apply to them.

    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    Except that's likely going to net an arrest on your part.

    The question is, will that get me out of jury duty? :P

    Nah, I don't mind it really. Just sucks I don't get paid since I can't work until it's over. Thanks for the "suggestions," but I'm not sure I want to pick this time and place for any kind of protest. I want to get it over with as soon as I can so I can get back to work.

    I think I heard, once upon a time, that you do get paid for jury duty. It's probably something really stupid like $25/day. But, better than nothing, I suppose.
    I am the person responsible for myself, my wife and my son. I take that VERY seriously.

    Last time I was on jury duty it was $10/day. My employer had a policy that I could turn that $10 over to them, and they gave me my regular pay for the day.


    No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law. Union Pacific Rail Co. vs Botsford as quoted in Terry v Ohio.

    this is true and it is only $10 per day. i had it for three days and it cost me $45 to park total and i got a check for $30. great way to miss out on more money i could have been making at work.

    They could arrest you for carring 2 mags and an empty holster?
