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.

“I think my concern would be, how do you put a 1,000-foot bubble around a member of Congress and what are you going to do about judges and Cabinet secretaries?” asked Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.). “If you get past the logistics of it, it would seem to have a ripple effect throughout the upper echelons of appointed and elected officials.”

Not only that, but you introduce the Who's-the-top-dog issue here. If Congresspersons aren't supposed to be within 1000 feet of legally owned handguns, it seems to me that most of the logistical burden of making that happen should fall upon the Congressmen, and not their employers. They're the ones that benefit, plus they supposedly work for the rest of us. Why should millions of us be inconvenienced rather than them?

“The fact is they do represent the people who elect them, and it’s essential, if we’re going to continue to have contact, that the public who are at these meetings are ensured of their own safety,” King said.

His words that they don't ever want to see the people who elected them.

Any such legislation should work in the other direction. Representatives should not be allowed within 1000’ of a firearm. Or at least any that would vote for the nonsense King is proposing.

“Mr. Cantor believes it’s appropriate to adequately review and actually read legislation before forming an opinion about it,” Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring stated in an e-mail.

Since Boehner had already declared he would not support it (before it is even written), should we consider this a shot from Cantor? (Can we say shot in this context anymore?)

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

“Mr. Cantor believes it’s appropriate to adequately review and actually read legislation before forming an opinion about it,” Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring stated in an e-mail.”

Just scratched off Cantor from my list of possible Presidential candidates.

King’s proposal makes as much sense as passing a law requiring any potential assassin to send the target of their assassination attempt a letter of warning at least onw week in advance.

That would have as much effect on a nut like the shooter in ths case as would King’s idiotic proposal - and I don’t need to read to know its rubbish - and should Cantor.

King is no friend of the Second Amendment and has been involved in other nitwit anti-gun legislation attempts and successes.

His company of Mayor Bloomberg with him at the time of announcing this idiotic proposal says a great deal about where he is “coming from”.

Boehner might be alright.

So far, so good.
