So the aristocracy thinks they can travel in a bubble and make us felons as they pass buy.

It isn't just the democrats taking away our freedom people.

It's time to see what the newly elected members of congress think about this.

The office of Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said the majority leader is reserving judgment until the King bill is finalized.”

At one time I had a lot of hope for Cantor but he's striking me as being way too soft. This is a bill that is nothing more than kneejerk stupidity on its face and Cantor's office acts like its something that could be seriously considered. King needs to be told without playing games just how ridiculous the bill really is.

It’s interesting that the shooter’s arena was a liberal event and the only known nearest gun (other than the shooter’s) was being carried by a kid in his early 20s not in attendance but buying cigarettes away from the scene who hears the shots and moves toward the sounds and ends up sitting on the shooter’s neck. Seeing the shooter already subdued the kid never even bothered to pull out his gun but assisted in holding the shooter down until sheriffs arrived.

If this 1,000ft rule was in place before the shooting, it would not have stopped it. The law abiding citizens would not have had their guns and the criminals would done what they would have done anyway.

Without adding to the list of places off limits for CHL
holders and others lawfully carrying a weapon.
Then I say let the burden be on them to stay 1000 feet away
from us.

Thus is an example of liberal fascists wanting to secure their abuse of power from the people driven consequences of doing so, isolating themselves so thay can do their dirty work with impunity.

YOU WORK FOR US........ AND IF YOU Drive THE UNBALANCED MINORITY OF the US public WHO HAPPEN TO BE CRAZY AROUND THE BEND........take your medicine.

We are witessing a liberal fascist race AWAY from further accountability. They fear for their very lives. I kinda like that.Perhaps they will see that its just not a good idea to keeop screwing their constituents, as they intend to keep doing, which is why they want , "additional protection."

Manwhile the left withers under the wages of politicizing the Arizona tragedy. A POX ON THE LEFT!!!

The ARIZONA corpses are not even cold in the ground and the left is attempting to prevent the roll back of their totalitarian health care bill by changing the issue based on this horrible tragedy? EFF THEM!!

OH WILL AMERICA EVER REMEMBER THIS IN 2012!!!!!

OBAMA MUST GO. RESIGN OBAMA!!!

I never will comprehend why those who want to ban firearms can’t comprehend that those who want to kill someone already plan on breaking the law and aren’t going to quibble over a gun law!! All these laws do is disarm those who would protect themselves and their loved ones. Liberalism is not being able to take something to its logical end from a specific premise.

What, 20,000 gun laws aren’t enough?

Everything this cretin did in Arizona is ALREADY illegal.

“Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) announced plans Tuesday to introduce legislation prohibiting people from carrying guns within 1,000 feet of members of Congress.”

My first reaction to that was - will that also apply to gun-toting SEIU thugs at town hall meetings???

"...from carrying guns within 1,000 feet of members of Congress."

First, it's 1,000 feet for members of Congress.  Next it will be 1,000 feet from any elected member of any level of government.  When that happens, there will not be anyone who could possibly own (or possess) any gun in any manner that would not be illegal since it would be impossible to be in any area that is not 1,000 feet from some type of elected official, from the federal level down to the local level.

What a great plan to circumvent the 2nd Amendment!

"A spokesman for the National Rifle Association, Andrew Arulanandam, said this week that it would be “inappropriate” for the group to comment on potential reforms so soon after the tragedy."

It would be "inappropriate" would it????????  Just when would it be appropriate?

The NRA has become gutless and during my long lifetime I supported the organization with vigor.  Now it has become politically correct and walks on "political eggshells" and is afraid to offending it's adversaries.

Not the right time my butt...it is exactly the right time for them to speak out loudly and often for we are engaged in a total war with those who wish to disarm us in order to make us slaves to the government.  If the NRA does not have the stomach to fight it, then it's time to find (or organize) a movement that will.

Why don’t we have a rule that politicians have to stay 1000 feet away from our money?

prohibiting people from carrying guns within 1,000 feet of members of Congress.

If this prohibition includes the Secret Service as well, I'm all for it.

I’m with you -

this wasn’t so much about guns as it was about asserting the “specialness” of the elite ruling class.

“Anything you can get through the gun rights lobby is going to have little consequence,” Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), a longtime supporter of tightening Second Amendment restrictions, said in a phone interview. “I don’t see the likelihood of much progress [in stealing people's rights] — I don’t see much hope.”
