    That seems awfully trusting. Why couldn't a CC permit holder also be a criminal?

    Great - and the one guy that goes nuts AFTER getting his license...

    You can't bypass any of the State security measures in Alabama as far as I'm aware.

    Even though the blade is about an inch and a half long (at most) I had to leave it at the checkpoint at the entrance. When I came back they gave it back but a friend of mine who is a lawyer saw what was happening and laughed saying "only you would be so stupid as to bring a knife into a courthouse."

    Heck. I go into courthouses all the time with knives and box cutters. All part of needed equipment to set up for trials. I just tell them I am trial support and have a bunch of boxes with me. They Xray it and let me through. The funny thing in federal court is smart phones. They have a real thing about letting recording devices into a courtroom. Unless a lawyer vouches for me, I can't bring in my iphone and have to check it with security.

    Every once in a blue moon, I'll be walking up to airport security and suddenly realize I didn't take my knife out of my pants and put it in "checked baggage".

    The last time I did that, I stopped before I was about to go through the metal detector, and I reached in and pulled out my (folded) knife, and my disappointment must have been obvious. A TSA guy standing there motioned to their "collection bin", and said, "you can either toss it in here, or step over there and pack it up and mail it home". It was WAY too good a knife to throw away, and I really didn't have time for the "mailing it home".

    Just then, I saw a soldier in uniform coming OUT the airport security area toward me, so I called out, "Soldier!" He looked at me, and I handed him the knife and said, "Merry Christmas!" He seemed genuinely surprised and appreciative, and said, "REALLY?" I told him it's either toss it or gift it!
