I was angered yesterday, I had to go downtown for a court proceeding. I dress for court wearing nice pants, tie and sport coat. So I left my usual companion (other than my Glock) SOG knife at home and carried my little two inch bladed Gerber finger-nail cleaner. I was not even allowed to carry that into the courthouse. I had to walk 5 blocks back to my truck to put it in away and return. I went in and felt really “safe” that there were 4 old and fat deputies manning the doors to protect me.
On a side note other than the attorneys and court personnel I was disgusted at the way people dress. Affirms one of the reason I don’t fly anymore so I don’t have to sit by some hipster sporting flip-flops and ragged clothes and his REI backpack and no deodorant. Church has become the same way.
Your reply is spot on accurate. This sounds familiar when I go into the County building to buy new plates and/or pay registration (when I don’t mail-in on time). The attire, the condition of the security personnel - deplorable; not all, but most. And Church - mostly informal dress but appropriate.
