Courts, encounters with locking up pistols while visiting.

So... been a long while since last I posted on these forums. I don't recall if anyone has said anything about the Tacoma/Pierce county court house. Last time I was there, they had a dedicated room with lock boxes. You step into the main part of the building at the 2nd floor entrance, ask for an officer so that you can check in your firearm, officer arrives, unlocks the room and you lock up your firearm, keep the key, then go on your merry way.

They have cleaned up their act since a previous occasion when they demanded my ID/CPL before they would give me access. Now, they say nothing and do as I described above.

Lakewood also has lock boxes at the court portion of the city building. Just tell the officer you need to check a firearm, they take it, lock it up right there at the entrance, and you're on about your business in the court.

Grim, nice to see your smile from the evergreen state...

also glad after reviewing the premise of this forum someone somewhere got the attention of those in charge who appears to have facilitated change in the way the law was implemented with the citizens involved...

Past several times, I've visited Franklin County Courthouse in Pasco, I just have to walk into the Security Checkpoint & a key(s) for the lockbox is given to me. Most of the correctional deputies know me & that I carry, so no questions asked.
