Homicidal knitters? The juror did it? What gives?

So, this morning as I was reading the Juror Information on Courthouse Security included in the jury duty summons I received yesterday, I came across this: “Firearms, electronic stun devices,alcoholic beverages, pepper spray, CO2 canisters, multi-tools, straight knitting needles, and other pointed or sharp items such as scissors and knives, are not allowed in the courthouse.

I guess my next project will call for circular needles, but if the can take away your AR-15s, can knitting needles be far behind?

And what about that martini I wanted bring in a thermos along with my sack lunch?
