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.
The loons are only making themselves look stupid and opportunisitc making allegations and pushing new laws before the dead are in the ground. Even some of my liberal friends can see this and they are becoming quite vocal against their own side about this stupidity.
