According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, 20 other states allow firearms on Statehouse grounds in some fashion. Most allow average citizens to bring their firearms into the Statehouse. Only two states specifically restrict it to lawmakers and their staffs.

However, most publicly visible and large companies with a diverse set of employees don’t permit guns in the workplace, said Christopher Schrader, director of government affairs for Indiana State Council of Society of Human Resource Management. The possibility of the presence of firearms during tense personnel situations would worry human resources professionals, he said. . . .
