There's more fallout from a loaded handgun found inside a bathroom at the Missouri Capitol last month.
The aide to House Speaker Tim Jones who left that gun behind has resigned. The speaker's chief of staff, Tom Smith, confirmed Thursday that Dave Evans had resigned September 27.
Smith says he was satisfied with the corrective actions Evans agreed to after the incident but that Evans thought it was best for him to step down.
A 2011 Missouri law allows elected officials and their employees to carry concealed firearms inside the Capitol if they have permits.
