Dem planning bill that would outlaw threatening lawmakers

• The Hill

Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.

Brady told CNN that he wants federal lawmakers and officials to have the same protections against threat currently provided to the president.

Politicians must be the dumbest and most criminal thing on the planet:
IMHO Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.)should be charged with treason for even considering this law. Where in the Constitution is congress made a special class of citizens with more rights than the rest of us?   If we let this one go - what  little of the first amendment we have left will be gone and insure the accuracy of the JFK quote:  "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."  In other words the passage of this law will bring us closer to the day that the ONLY way to deal with out of control government officials is to bring them to room temperature.
