Recent threats cause Missouri lawmakers to question Capitol security

JEFFERSON CITY -- Threats against state lawmakers are raising concerns about security at Missouri’s Capitol, where lawmakers, employees and visitors enter and exit through numerous unlocked doors without passing through any visible security measures.

“I just feel a lot less at ease this session,” said state Sen. Jolie Justus, a Kansas City Democrat who was one of those recently threatened.

Last month, six lawmakers returned to their offices and found orange stickers with the image of rifle crosshairs on the nameplates outside their doors.

1. I heard about this

and have heard that many don't feel all that safe in the state capitol building. The stickers a few months ago were quite frightening, as are the emails that were recently sent.

We have some loonys in this state. Southern Poverty can verify that info-lots of hate groups.
