Here's a partial list of items confiscated and/or rejected by Humboldt County Courthouse security over the past year  six months:

  • Three guns

  • 2,024 knives

  • 294 pairs of scissors

  • 202 razor blades

  • 824 "pointed devices"*

  • 31 "sharp objects"*

  • 94 knitting needles

  • 54 screwdrivers

  • 53 corkscrews

  • 96 metal forks

  • 52 bullets

  • 21 toy/replica guns

  • 127 chains (12 inches or longer)

  • 90 handcuff keys (zero handcuffs)

*When you eliminate all the other "pointed devices" and "sharp objects" on this list, it makes you wonder what's left. Pencils? Quills? Pitchforks?
