    Capitol Alert: Assembly OKS concealed guns for four legislators

    Assembly OKS concealed guns for four legislators
    Editor's note: This post was updated at 5:40 p.m. to include a link to a new post with a response from the Assembly speaker.

    Assembly Chief Sergeant-at-Arms Ronald Pane has given four legislators permission to carry concealed weapons in the state Capitol, according to two senior Senate staff members who have been informed of the decision.

    State law prohibits carrying loaded firearms and deadly weapons in public buildings, except under limited conditions. A 2010 bill by Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani, D-Livingston, tightened the law, requiring that most holders of concealed weapons permits or other gun licenses get permission from the sergeants-at-arms of the state Assembly or the state Senate in order to bring their gun in the Capitol or legislative office buildings. Peace officers are exempt from the restrictions.

    No such approval has been given in the Senate, where the Rules Committee has established a no-guns policy. Senate Chief Sergeant-at-Arms Tony Beard said while he respects the Assembly's judgment to establish its own security practices to best protect its members, it would take an "extraordinary situation" for him to give a member the OK to carry a concealed weapon in the building. He said his focus has been on how existing safety protocol and systems can be used to respond to threats and protect all members, staff and visitors.

    Shortly after The Bee first reported the news, a spokesman for Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez said the Los Angeles Democrat had asked Pane to revoke the authorizations "pending a full review of safety and security measures."

    As the Sacramento Bee reported this week, sergeants for the lower house have recently started carrying concealed weapons full-time while on duty.

    Pane and a spokeswoman for Pérez, who directed the change in policy, said the move was intended to create continuity and enhance safety for members, staff and the public as a whole.

    Self defense is only a right for the elites. The rest of us are too stupid and dangerous.

    Peace officers are exempt from the restrictions.
    Knowing the traditional direction of media this seems to be an odd statement to include. Has there been or is there currently a member of the senate or house that is a peace officer as well? Full time, reserve? Anyone there that qualifies under hr218 which made the reporter take pause to make such a statement? Or is the reporter just referring to Capitol polce which are already there to protect them from the average citizen who might wish them harm?

    Remember Diane Fienstien has a CCW also.

    I believe it was a comment on the current state law that prohibits any carrying of concealed weapons into public buildings.

    Another thing to think about also is the current attorney general of CA has said she doesn't believe there is a right to self defense in any circumstances. Not surprising since she was the DA in San Francisco.
