SALEM, Ore. — How safe is our Capitol building?

Oregon is one of 18 states that doesn’t require ID badges for staffers or visitors at the capitol.

The Oregon Capitol is one out of 16 capitol buildings without security at entrances, and one of 11 that let citizens with firearms inside.

A demonstration last week raised security questions after two  logging protesters broke away from a tour group, rappelled down the Capitol dome, and then displayed an anti-logging banner.
