Is Capitol Security Sufficient?

Updated: Apr 15

Last week’s shooting of Democratic Party chairman Bill Gwatney by a gunman who entered his office has legislators and Capitol employees wondering: Is security at the Arkansas State Capitol tight enough? Secretary of State spokesperson says “You bet,” but others wonder what more may be needed in this Arkansas Democrat-Gazette story.

I’ll confess that I’ve always found it a little odd that, when I go to the Capitol, I’m allowed to walk around the metal detectors unchecked, me being such a shifty-looking character and all.
