Capitol security

Apparently only in the past few days have people entering the capitol been required to go through a metal detector? Really? I remember when I visited DC in the 90s. They had those installed at all the Smithsonian museums and all the monuments.

Visitors yes, congress people no. I think.

For publicly accessible areas, there have been metal detectors for at least 30 years. The public has to pass through metal detectors. Members of Congress are permitted to pass the metal detectors with their Congressional ID and also carry in the Capitol building, but not in the chambers.

That’s where the new metal detectors have been set up.

There are escape corridors in the building.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
