    History has shown whenever there is a tragety, statists always use it as an oppotunity to attack the rights of the people. This isnt the first time this has been tried.

    If people believe the proposal is a bad political objective, they should organize a counter-argument and take their position on the other side of aisle. Being spiteful and hating public leaders from behind their computers isn't a good response.

    This is a really stupid law. Like apdst I've run into my congressman unintentionally before, and I'm sure quite a few other people could share similar stories. Since it's legal to carry concealed, and you can't always control whether you'll be near a congressman, this law seems to be unenforceable.

    I just thought of something else too. The article says it would be illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official. I wonder how broad that 'government official' label is?

    So a new law would have stopped an insane man from shooting a Congresswoman and killing a nine year old girl? Did you know that once the girl was down the woman with her jumped over the little girl and the guy shot the woman three times in the back? He was there to kill a lot of people and killing Gifford was just going to be a bonus for what ever warped reason he had.

    Its not over reacting. Every time a tragedy like this happens the anti-2nd amendment loons including the media comes out of the wood work to try to push some anti-2nd amendment agenda. Now these same people are trying to push for a anti-1st amendment agenda by whining how we need to tone down the political rhetoric. These people are despicable. These people are like crickets when a armed citizen stops a criminal with his firearm.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Unfortunately, for some of you, this is still the freest country in the world and I can be hateful and spiteful as I want and there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it.

    Does that include the president's bodyguards?
