Please bear with my longwindedness, I am very interested in your guys opinion on this. So I had jury duty this week. Last week I called the office and asked if there are any arrangements to check in my CHL weapon for safekeeping while I'm in the courthouse, and of course they have zero accomodation for responsible citizens. I was of course informed that my weapon was not allowed inside the courthouse or the adjacent building where various offices and the jury assembly room is located. The way it sounded to me is that they consider this adjacent building part of the courthouse complex, which would make it one the very few places where I am statutorily prohibited from carrying my weapon in Oregon, even though it's not actually part of the courthouse. So I decided to only carry my S.W. 642 on my ankle while driving my short trip to downtown OC, and just left it in the center console of my vehicle while I was doing my civic duty. So to enter this adjacent building where the jury assembly room is, you have to go through absolutely ZERO security checkpoints. I did not see one Deputy the entire time I was there. As I am sitting there for a few hours waiting for nothing, I realized this room full of potential jurors would be a perfect target for some felon who just got out of prison and wants to get revenge on what he may see as the people who put him there. It was not comforting to know that I was completely helpless to stop some crazed criminal who might try something like that. I realize now that I could have been carrying my full loadout, and no one would have know the difference. Of course according to the office staff I talked to last week that would be illegal, and also if I would have had to go into the actual courthouse and pass through security, I doubt I would have had a chance to put my "contraband" back in my parked vehicle beforehand. So basically what I am saying is that's it's pretty jacked up to deny me my right to self defense, while at the same time providing zero security in place of my denied right. I have no problem with not carrying my weapon inside a court complex, as long as everyone in there with me passes through the same security I do. I assume the reason they keep the courthouse off limits to weapons is because it's considered higher risk, so why in the world is there zero security for the jury pool? The potential scenario I described earlier is not at all a stretch of the imagination, especially these days. I am wondering if we have any recourse in addressing this with county, as it is definitely something that needs to be changed before something bad happens. What do you all think of all this?
