Gun Control?

November 16, 2004 ( - Little Rock employees are being told to keep their guns at home - at least for a day - when former President Clinton and some friends come to town.

With the presidential library for Clinton set to open on Thursday, Acxiom Corporation, whose building overlooks the library site, has distributed a memo reminding its 420 employees that bringing guns onto office grounds is not allowed, according to Reuters. Although the policy has been in place for awhile, it is common for some people in the region to keep weapons – and more specifically, deer hunting rifles – in their cars so that they can get more time in hunting before or after work. Deer hunting season in Arkansas opened last weekend.

With President Bush, as well as former presidents Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush set to accompany Clinton for the library’s opening, the company asserted that “this would not be the a time to violate the policy.”
