U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democratic presidential candidate, has added a public appearance to her visit to Little Rock today. She’ll talk about gun violence at a news conference at 1 p.m. at the Capitol.

Later in the afternoon, she’ll attend a reception/fund-raiser at the Capitol Hotel hosted by Mack McLarty and former Sens. Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln.

Members of the Arkansas legislature’s Democratic caucus will join Klobuchar at her talk about gun violence. Presumably Gov. Asa Hutchinson and the rest of the Republican gun nut caucus won’t attend to support sensible gun laws.

Klobuchar worked the phone yesterday to invite Arkansas supporters to drop by the reception and make a contribution.
