Lawmaker Takes Gun to Capitol
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- An Iowa congressional candidate says he sometimes carries a handgun into the Senate chamber while working there.
State Sen. Brad Zaun of Urbandale says he's concerned about Capiol security. Zaun says other Iowa House and Senate members have carried handguns into their chambers, but he didn't name them.
Secretary of the Senate Michael Marshall told the Register that administrative code bars people from carrying dangerous weapons in Capitol complex buildings. Zaun said in response to Marshall's statement that he will stop taking a gun into the Capitol.
Zaun is seeking the Republican nomination in the June 3 primary for the 3rd District congressional seat being left vacant by the retiring Tom Latham.
