Legislature a little less hypocritical on guns

gun3It’s highly debatable whether allowing concealed-carry guns in the Statehouse will make it safer. But at least legislative leaders stopped being quite so hypocritical in deciding Thursday to allow permit holders to bring concealed guns into the Capitol, starting next month. The Legislature forced local governments to allow guns in their buildings (unless they provided cost-prohibitive security) but, until this policy change, had barred the public from bringing guns in the Capitol. Now lawmakers should allow open-carry guns in the Capitol, too. After all, there is no reason to worry, right?
