So, I really don't understand why Waller County (or any other that posts similar stuff) wants to keep out LTCers. Do they really think that LTCers, who we all know have the lowest criminal incidence rate of any group in this state, are going to go to a courthouse armed with the sole intent of foul play? Of course, is it likely that the real criminals who actually commit violent crimes will stay out just because of those signs? Or, is it just a case of petty tyranny, where they want to remind the populace that the big cheeses are in charge and no one may "challenge" that status? Or is it something else I haven't been able to fathom? I really would like to know their rational behind it.

Tyrants and their henchmen don't trust We the People.

It's really as simple as that.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

:iagree:

Petty people like to have their little fiefdoms. You see this with college professors who want to set rules for "their" classroom, or "their" office, and who chafe at the notion that these things do not actually belong to them, but are just the places where they do their jobs.

This also expands well beyond physical spaces. Petty people will try to exert control in any way they can to make themselves feel more important. For example, a mid-level clerk might withhold approvals on something unnecessarily and then act like they are doing you a favor when they finally do their job. These petty tyrants are everywhere.
