The opening ceremony of Bill Clinton’s presidential library caused Acxiom, a Little Rock company, to remind employees that possession of firearms on office property is forbidden. Deer season opened last week and overlapped with the festivities. Many employees keep hunting gear, including guns, in their cars, so they can squeeze in a little hunting before and after work.
At the library, three former presidents and President Bush were expected to speak. The presence of so many high profile figures means security in Little Rock is very tight. Employees were encouraged to be “especially mindful” of firearm laws outside of the office as well.
Dale Ingram, a spokesman for Acxiom, told the Macon Daily, “This would not be a time to violate that policy.”
