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

• Ryan Grim, Huffington Post
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. King is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. The proposed law follows the Saturday shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and a federal judge that left six dead, including the judge, and 14 wounded. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation's most outspoken gun-control advocates, is backing King's measure and is expected to put the weight of his pro-gun-control organization behind it.

Let me see if I understand this correctly - they want to make it unlawful for an armed cadre of concerned citizens to surround and PROTECT their elected official when they meet with them out in public?  Isn't this tantamount to cutting their own throats?

Imagine had this been RON PAUL meeting in public with Arizonans?  Would Mr. Loughner been able to even POINT a firearm at Ron without all hell breaking loose, much less than shoot him, and then kill six other people before being disarmed when attempting to reload!?!  No way in hell. NO WAY IN HELL! I tell's ya...

 This Peter King and all the other sycophants need to go!

The man actually looks possed by a demon. I am not kidding please take a look at the evil SOB. We are a nation ruled by evil ungodly demons. If not in fact the effect is the same.  Satan himself could not do a better job of destroying this once great country.  Get your ass off the couch and start raising hell while you still can.

Great another Unconstitutional law.  What's the count now about 99% of the laws are null and void because they are Unconstitutional?

WE ALL KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING.... THE TOTAL OUTLAWING OF GUNS AND MAKING EVERYONE A CRIMINAL.  BETTER PUT OUR FEET DOWN HERE AND QUITE REDRAWING LINES IN THE SAND AS WE ARE ABOUT TO BACK OFF A CLIFF WHILE DOING SO!

 This proves once again left or right, these losers just don't understand the concept of governing based on principle.  One emotion soaked incident and it becomes the template case in point for every situation regarding citizen’s gun rights.  This tragic event is the exception that proves the rule.  While the left is desperately trying to connect the shooter with the Tea Party at all costs… and idiocy, some on the right propose a knee jerk reaction that will solve nothing.  Do you think that if the shooter was determined to kill that he would pause for one second to think about whether or not he would get arrested for carrying a weapon too close to an elected official?  It’s a ridiculous grand stand move that will only endanger honest citizens, that is assuming that such a law would in any way be enforceable or able to be obeyed by a citizen.  What happens if a citizen is carrying a weapon, concealed or otherwise as is legal in Arizona, and they inadvertently come too close to a public official that they may or may not recognize as such?  This is glaringly stupid and only serves to highlight what fools we have elected.  Frankly if there was a citizen carrying who was at this event they very well could have saved more lives as a result and saved the state prosecuting this murderer to boot.

"introduce legislation that would make it illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official,"    

Would that include Police?
