Default Feeling Naked

Had jury duty today and left most of my EDC stuff at home. Other than to work a few times, I haven't been unarmed out in public in over a month.

Damn, did I feel naked.

I don't ever carry at work, which means I also travel to and from work without carrying. I didn't carry at the State Fair. I don't carry at the post office (federal law). It's a good practice to be aware, and it's also a good practice to make empirically supportable risk evaluations.

Try having your license expire last Sunday and your pick up date to get your renewal isn't until tomorrow. Feels incredibly strange not to be carrying, but my luck if I did it would be the one time I get stopped and checked.

Some will remember how they felt the very first time they legally carried in public. I know I do, I've only had my permit a few years.

Going out in public unarmed for the first time in awhile produced almost the same feeling I had when I went armed for the first time.

I felt very conspicuous when normally I feel like I can just blend in.

No more jury duty. It was a resisting arrest case that would have been fun to watch. The ADA looked and acted like she was fresh out of law school and the defense attorney was a dolt.

If I'd never had any association with lawyers before, my already equivocal perception of them would've dropped considerably following this experience.

The fact that a resisting arrest charge is actually going to trial is kind of strange.

I thought so too.

Specifically, it was "resisting an executive officer" whatever that means. The ADA was prosecuting as a felony. In Voi Dire questions for potential jurors, both the ADA and defense counsel continually referred to it as resisting arrest.

Edit: and they were very clear that they would not refer to or mention what the defendant was doing or if he was committing a crime at the time of the incident that led to the resisting charge.
