Several Democratic state senators say they are disturbed by finding stickers of gun targets near their Missouri Capitol offices.

Democratic Sen. Jolie Justus, of Kansas City, says a small sticker with an image of a gun crosshair was found Tuesday afternoon near her office door. She said the sticker was removed, but someone later replaced it with a larger one. Several other Democratic senators said they also were targeted with the stickers.

Justus said Capitol Police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol are investigating the incident.

Senators were debating legislation Tuesday related to President Barack Obama's health care law. Justus is one of several Democratic senators who have opposed the Republican-backed bill that would require legislative or voter approval before the state could take steps to implement a health-insurance exchange.
