This is one in a series of videos looking back at big stories in Sacramento-area history. This one took place on May 2, 1967, when two dozen armed members of the Black Panther Party entered the state Capitol and 10 made their way to the back of the Assembly Chamber before they were disarmed and marched away by the state police. The group was protesting a bill that would forbid carrying a loaded weapon within an incorporated area. Video produced by David Caraccio
