    Peter King, Leading Republican, To Introduce Strict Gun-Control Legislation

    King is officially a dumbass. This makes as much sense as creating gun free zones.

    I've heard that crisis brings out the best in in people. I'm seeing that the opposite is also true.

    A murderer isn't going to shoot up a town hall meeting, because carrying a gun within 1,000 feet of a congress critter is illegal?

    Rep. Peter King, a Republican from New York, is planning to introduce legislation that would make it illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official, according to a person familiar with the congressman's intentions.

    Don't you get the logic for a law like this? No one would have been killed or injured in AZ if Loughner knew there was the 1,000 ft law in place.

    Do you think only responsible gun owners would obey that law?

    actually, he could have been legally searched and prohibited from attending the event.

    By whom???? In case you didn't notice, Sheriff Dip**** didn't provide any security.

    Are we going to start searching every swinging dick that's on the way into the grocery store, just because some congress critter decided to set up her show at the front door?

    That's what I want, off duty TSA agents "searching me" before I get near a Gov't Official.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Lets just convert the capital into a supermax facility and keep the congressmen safe and sound within the walls with three squares a day and a dedicated security force to patrol the grounds keeping them safe in their own private cells. In other words, lets just keep them away from us, they're so special and all. We can get the security folk from leavenworth, or maybe gitmo. Problem solved.

    Bah! This is a ghastly idea.

    Personally, I think gun control, if anything, should be a local issue. Nowadays, when I hear gunfire, it means the neighbor's shooting target practice -- unless, of course, it's hunting season. In the city, gunfire means somebody got shot at. The cultural symbolism of a gun varies greatly by region.

    But this kind of law needlessly tests the constitution. It's already very, very, very illegal to shoot a congressman. What use is a law like this?

    The whole purpose of her event was to make herself "accessible" to the public. I doubt she would have wanted a cordon of police covering a 1000' perimeter, searching everyone who crossed same... it would NOT have endeared her to her constituents.

    Not to mention if we were going to do something like that for every Congresscritter's every public appearance, the cost would be enormous and the inconvenience for the citizenry appalling.

    As tightly and professionally as the President is protected, assassins still manage to get within range. Hinkley/Reagan for instance.

    Fortunately this law has about a snowball's chance in hell of passing.
