Law enforcement officials are getting lessons on how to properly answer the call of nature at the U.S. Capitol, Fox News reports.

"We are now providing additional training on what to do when you have to go the bathroom," U.S. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine told the House Administration Committee, according to Fox.

The commission is looking into three recent incidents in which U.S. Capitol Police officers left their loaded service firearms in restrooms at the Capitol restrooms after finishing their business.

Sounding like his tongue was firmly planted in cheek, Rep. Rich Nugent, a Florida Republican, told the hearing: "Controlling your weapon. That's like rule No. 1."

In one of the incidents, an officer assigned to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, entered a stall, placed his Glock and a magazine into a container of toilet seat covers and left them.

In another, an officer assigned to House Speaker John Boehner left his weapon behind in Boehner's bathroom.

But now that the issue is out there, it may be a case of much a doo-doo about nothing.

"I would venture common sense will prevail and no officer will ever again leave a firearm in a toilet-cover dispense again in the Capitol complex," said Rep. Rodney Davis, an Illinois Republican, according to Fox.
