** FILE ** A sign for those with concealed handgun licensees (CHL) is seen as people pass through one of four new metal detectors at the Texas Capitol in Austin on June 3, 2010. A shooting incident in January outside the Capitol prompted lawmakers to order metal detectors at public entrances and the creation of a separate lane for CHL holders to get through them. Capitol insiders are now signing up in droves for the course that will get them a license, now known as the "express pass." (AP Photo/American Statesman, Ricardo B. Brazziell)
