Obviously, I agree with Perry's comments. Just opening up for thought's on the incident and what will come of it. As many have said, it could have been a very bad day if the perp had been shooting at people instead of in the air/at the building."The last thing I want is the Texas Capitol to turn into DFW airport."

I can carry into any local government building that Isn't being used by the court,such as a courthouse or Justice of the peace office in the building

I can carry into the VA Capitol and the legislative building. The only gun shot heard there in recent memory is when one of the legislators had an ND a couple years ago in his office.

Last week a dude came to the state capitol building and fired several rounds either into the air or at the building in general. He was casually apprehended without further incident while reloading his mag.
