Lawmaker Leaves Loaded Gun in Capitol

Denver Post: "In the moments after lawmakers and visitors cleared a committee room Feb. 6 following a debate on concealed handgun permits, Rep. Jonathan Singer (D) found a black canvass bag under the table where lawmakers sit. Inside, Singer discovered a loaded handgun that belonged to Rep. Jared Wright (R), who sits next to him on the House Local Government committee."

"Wright, who is in his first term, told The Denver Post he often carries a concealed handgun inside the Capitol and under state statute has the right to do so as a peace officer."
