The FBI is warning of armed protests planned at capitol buildings all across the country.

OHP and even 75 members of the Oklahoma National Guard are prepared to respond to any violence though state leaders say there have been no credible threats here in the state.

The Adjunct General just said shame on us if we're not ready because we've had plenty of warning that these types of activities may occur. I hope and pray that Oklahomans are not inclined to conduct this type of activity," said Thomas Mancino with the National Guard.

The Oklahoma National Guard isn't just helping at the state capitol as 400 Members will join armed forces already in Washington.
