    Local news did a story on Sheriff Freeman cracking down on drunk drivers, and they showed the front of his office.

    Big gun-buster and no weapons signs on either side of the entrance.

    I thought a sheriff's office can't be off limits unless there's screening.

    Do they have screening there?

    That looks like the rear entrance to the Sheriff's Office, which is where the Probate Court is located. So it's off limits for other reasons and I'm sure there's screening there as well.

    Many counties’ Sheriff HQ are also part of the jail complex, and while GWL holders may park with guns in the car at such parking facilities, any other area within jail guard lines is off-limits.

    And the term “guard line” is a lie, a legal fiction, because it extends well beyond the fences and secure areas where guards control access.

    What does that have to do with this topic?

    IF there's a link, I can't see it. They're talking about a news story, there's usually a link.

    Yes the probate court has very tight screening. They made me take my boots off when I was there last year.

    Murray Co. probate office building has no gun buster sign or screening. Is it legal to carry in there?

    Not if it is a courthouse, which is a prohibited location but requires no screening, signs, etc. like most other (non-federal) government buildings. I assume the probate office is in the same building as the court, which makes it a courthouse. You just have to know that courthouses are off limits (no prior warnings required).

    Isn't it Probate Court? I know it's mostly administrative, but still has a judge, issues rulings, etc.
