    GOP REP. WILL INTRODUCE NEW STRICT GUN LAW
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/gop-...l-legislation/

    A popular GOP congressman announced today that he will soon introduce gun control legislation that will make it illegal to carry a gun within 1,000 feet of a federal official.
    Why?

    Congressman Peter King today also announced that he will introduce legislation that will make it illegal to knowingly carry a gun within 1,000 feet of the President, Vice President, Members of Congress or judges of the Federal Judiciary. In the United States, it is illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a school. Passing a similar law for government officials would give federal, state, and local law enforcement a better chance to intercept would-be shooters before they pull the trigger.
    NO IT WON'T!! Laws like this have no effect on nutjobs like Loughner!! Had this law been in effect a week ago you know what would have happened on Saturday?

    EXACTLY WHAT DID HAPPEN! It's not like he used some massive rifle, or shotgun strapped to his back that people would have been able to see and intercept him before he got close. It was an ordinary glock handgun.

    Sorry. I expected this kind of absurd control/power-grab right after this happened, but it still hacks me off to see it.

    Re: And the unthinking stupidity begins...

    A certain NC US Representative is having himself deputized so that he can carry a concealed weapon anywhere, legally ignoring restrictions on locations that normall prohibit such carrying. I interpreted this as the ruling class arming itself while simultaneously attempting to disarm the plebes. I was annoyed.
    The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
    In the ranks of death ye will find him;
    His father's sword he hath girded on,
    And his wild harp slung behind him;
    "Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
    "Tho' all the world betray thee,
    One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
    One faithful harp shall praise thee!

      That's along the lines of another thing that's annoying me: another congressperson is talking about introducing a bill to increase penalties for shooting a federal official. Again...WHY? They're nothing but a human just like the rest of us and I see no reason why killing them should be any more severe a crime than killing an ordinary schmuck who works at McDonald's. This top-down, institutionalized class warfare has to stop.

        If Representative King thinks that federal law prohibits carrying a handgun or gun within 1000 feet of a school, he should read U.S. v. Lopez.

        There is no such law. The law that replaced the pre-Lopez law is pretty weak, not nearly as restrictive as Rep. King would have you believe.

        This was the first case in the re-awakening of the Supremes to tell Congress "enough already with your stupid, overreaching laws that try to use the Commerce Clause to regulate where and when a bear and defecate in the woods and everything else you idiots want to control."

          If he had a rifle, it wouldn't be necessary to get within 1000 feet.

              If the right person had the right rifle, it wouldn't be necessary to get within 1000 meters...

                  Well, North Carolina already has laws that give harsher penalties for Murdering or Assaulting Police Officers, Sports Officials who are cnducting their official duties, Women, and qualifying children. Why not federal officials, too? I can see the logic, though I disagree with it.

                      I think that if someone kills a federal official that we should kill the murderer three times.

                        In NC, if I smack Rabbi Knife, it is a misdemeanor. If I smack a handicap person it becomes a felony, EVEN if the handicap is mental illness.

                          Now I understand why you called me and asked if you could keep your guns in the house if you were convicted of a felony... You were planning on smacking me, which would not be necessarily improper...
