    I have to go to the US district(Federal) court in Seattle tomorrow and was wondering if they had the check in boxes? I recall that it was required that courts (On the state level) had check in boxes for firearms but wanted to make sure that applied to the Federal Level as well.

    The more I look, I see people talking about the local state level having boxes. Does the US District court not allow them since it is a Federal Building?

    Regards,
    Brian

    US district=federal court

    Federal court DOES NOT have to abide by state restrictions.

    DO NOT bring your gun.

    Not only don't they have to abide by state restrictions, the moment you enter with a gun you are in violation of federal law.

    Thought that bears repeating.
    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.

    Yea don't bring gun.

    But I think it is about time that the states start making the Feds abide by the rules of their state.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    A quick phone call could also solve the problem. You never know, they may have just a place for firearms, and not the evidence locker during your arraignment...

    Since it is illegal to enter the building with a firearm I would wager that they do not have any place to store them while visiting.

    Actually I think they do have storage for LE (and I don't think it's illegal for LE to enter the building armed if they're on official duty.)

    Police officers on duty can carry in any federal building.

    We are not talking about LEO in this thread.

    joeroket,

    The OP he was "wondering if they have checkin boxes".

    My reply is: yes they do have them, but only for use by LE.
