Had jury duty earlier this year, if you are picked bring some reading material or your laptop.
If you carry, lock your firearm in the courthouse I would not trust in vehicle due to the amount of auto and foot traffic going through the parking lot or on the side streets.

Surprised nobody brought up civic responsibilities as a citizen. I've been called for jury duty a few times (but never picked) however as with voting, I consider it a solemn duty and serve with pride.

Yeah, I can see how the court might think you have a biased opinion

Do you get to request how many fingers they use for the anal cavity search when you do this, or do they choose for you? lol!

Well, they automatically figured that given your line of work, your wife would be automatically prejudiced as a result.

I was called for jury duty back in March. I was out by noon...the perp decided to cop a plea rather than take a chance with the jury.

They used to five or ten years ago. But they don't anymore.
