Attorney files lawsuit after being denied entry to courthouse with a gun - Arkansas Times

Here’s one to watch: The AP reports on a lawsuit arguing that attorneys should be able to carry handguns into court. Chris Corbitt, a Conway patent attorney, filed the lawsuit after being denied entry to a Pulaski County courthouse because he was carrying a concealed handgun. Corbitt has a concealed handgun license.

State law bans guns in courtrooms, with exceptions for “a law enforcement officer, either on-duty or off-duty, officer of the court, bailiff, or other person authorized by the court is permitted to possess a handgun in the courtroom of any court or a courthouse of this state.”

The lawsuit argues that lawyers are “officers of the court,” and is meant to test the current law.
