Police at the Missouri state capitol have stepped up patrols after finding stickers resembling gun targets near the office doors of several state lawmakers. The offices of five democratic state senators and one republican senator were targeted in the capitol building in Jefferson City.
The orange round stickers displaying cross-hairs were discovered Tuesday as the senate was debating whether Missouri should implement a portion of President Obama's health care overhaul. State senator Robin Wright-Jones of St. Louis found one of the stickers on the nameplate outside her third floor office. Whether it was a prank or a threat, Senator Wright-Jones says it is not okay.
Senator Wright-Jones is calling for metal detectors to be installed at the capitol. Capitol police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol are investigating the threats.
