    IMG_0599.JPG Warren County Courthouse, Vicksburg, MS. Isn't this a direct subversion of the MS State Constitution and firearms laws?

    Go on the AG's site file a complaint and should get removed. All of them doin gjust that I have heard of have been removed by order of the AG.

    I've just visited the site. Looks like I'll have to download a copy of the complaint form to sign and have notarized. You would think in the digital age, the AG's office would make things a bit easier. But if I have to do things like it's 1999 then so be it. Anything to get this garbage under control. The same thing's going on in Forrest County, Hattiesburg, MS.

    Believe the reason you have to print it out to be notarized etc is because it is you that is filing the complaint rather than the "law" taking it into their hands just as you have to file a trespass complaint even if the warden catches a person on your property.

    Deals like this infuriate me. If the AG is made aware it should not take a citizen having to file an official complaint but rather the AG's office should take it on their own and see it to the proper solution.

    Rick Ward is always after these signs.

    The AG is going to punt on your complaint because it involves a court order rather than a city or county sign/ordinance. Rick Ward's lawsuit on this issue is pending before the Miss. Supreme Court.

    And I hope with every fiber in my body he WINS!!
    If he doesn't prevail then it will fall to the Legislature to further clarify the law so that it is no longer left to any deviant, perverted, and twisted interpretation which is what I feel these judges are doing.

    The law is pretty plain, simple, and easy for (me, at least) to understand. These holier than though bastards just want disarm us peasants. I ain't complyin.

    It has already been ruled on that a judge has the right to restrict carry ONLY in his court, not the building that the court room is in. Our circuit judge tried that and it got removed within 2 weeks.

    Hey, it says that they are only prohibiting "weapons of any king."

    That lets my weapons off the hook. :)

    (It's obviously a typo, but wouldn't you think somebody would read such stuff before they signed it for posting?)

    I'd say just about every county courthouse containing a courtroom has these signs. It's OK for unsupervised convicts to wander about in and out of the courthouse carrying hammers and axes while law abiding people have no right to their safety.

    The courthouse here in Pike County, where I work almost every day, has signs which say "No Firearms Allowed. This does not apply to licencees under (enter CCW/ECCW statute here)". The actual courtrooms have metal detectors which you have to go through, same for the Board Room for the Supervisors when they are meeting. The back offices which connect to the judge's and court secretary's offices and witness/meeting rooms, is kept locked, accessible only to authorized personnel. This change was made following the new laws for CCW/ECCW. Prior to that time, the signs simply read "No Weapons Allowed". The only county in the state, and I work them all, that has actually gotten it right.

    A few years ago Shelia took my brother to court. She had my Colt 45 in her purse. She just forgot she had it. We had a good laugh.
