H. CON. RES. 158
Designating the Document Door of the United States Capitol as the
H. CON. RES. 158
Whereas on July 24, 1998, a lone gunman entered the United States Capitol
through the door known as the Document Door, located on the first floor
of the East Front;
Whereas Officer Jacob Joseph Chestnut was the first United States Capitol Police
officer to confront the gunman just inside the Document Door and lost
his life as a result;
Whereas Detective John Michael Gibson also confronted the gunman and lost his
life in the ensuing shootout;
Whereas the last shot fired by Detective John Gibson--his final act as an
officer of the law--finally brought down the gunman and ended his deadly
Whereas while the gunman's intentions are not fully known, nor may ever be
known, it is clear that he would have killed more innocent people if
United States Capitol Police Officer Jacob Chestnut and Detective John
Gibson had not ended the violent rampage;
Whereas the United States Capitol Police represent true dedication and
professionalism in their duties to keep the United States Capitol and
the Senate and House of Representatives office buildings safe for all
who enter them;
Whereas the United States Capitol shines as a beacon of freedom and democracy
all around the world;
Whereas keeping the sacred halls of the United States Capitol, known as the
People's House, accessible for all the people of the United States and
the world is a true testament of Congress and of our Nation's dedication
to upholding the virtues of freedom;
Whereas the door near where this tragic incident took place has been known as
the Document Door; and
Whereas it is fitting and appropriate that the Document Door henceforth be known
as the Memorial Door in honor of Officer Jacob Chestnut and Detective
John Gibson: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That the door known as the Document Door and located on the first floor
of the East Front of the United States Capitol is designated as the
``Memorial Door'' in honor of Officer Jacob Joseph Chestnut and
Detective John Michael Gibson of the United States Capitol Police, who
gave their lives in the line of duty on July 24, 1998, near that door.
Passed the House of Representatives July 20, 1999.
