Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), one of the few pro-gun control Republicans in the House, wants to make it illegal for someone to carry a gun within 1,000 feet of certain high-ranking federal officials, including members of Congress.
It is imperative that we do all that we can to give law enforcement the tools they need to ensure the safety of New Yorkers and prevent an attack before it happens, said King, who is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, during a press conference in New York.

you’re making sense.
Doubt he will see the relationship though.....
Don't know how a guy that actually seems to get it..on many fronts..can't get this.
I guess some are just more equal than others.
Still can possess in school zone if :
An individual who has been issued a right-to-carry license by the state, or a political subdivision of the state, in which the “school zone” is located may continue to carry in a “school zone” in compliance with existing state and local laws. Non-licensed individuals who drive through a “school zone” must have their firearms unloaded and locked in a container or firearms rack.
Oh, but I have seen that argument presented here. I remember several threads where GOP loyalists complained that the NRA was endorsing a pro-gun Democrat over their candidate. They never could explain why the NRA should sell out gun owners over non-RKBA causes.
From what I read in another article, the reason the Army denied him enlistment was because he used marijuana too many times.
Connecting at 1,000 feet, 333 yards does not require snipers or even a high grade rifle.
What happens if they visit a military base??
I'd like to propose a bill banning congresscritters within 10,000 ft. of any reporter, news camera or microphone.

Issue Nerf guns?
Hi Tim? Can you give me your schedule so I know where not to carry? I should ask for the Dingell and Rogers schedules too since their districts are less than five miles from me.
Good question. So if you are sitting someplace minding your own business and you have a weapon and some lawmaker wanders within the 1000 foot circle you should have drawn as a warning, you are the one in violation? Okay, that’s just stupid. But judging from many in office, I guess I understand where these idiots come from. I guess? Or not. Now I’m confusing myself.
One thousand feet. So, someone driving down the street, two blocks over, with no idea in the world that some tin-horn, two-bit congresscritter is in the vicinity would be GUILTY of a federal crime.
I thought I like Peter King, but I guess not. Looser.
I do work in Brighton. It's the hometown of Mike Rogers, a congressman. If I'm going into town, there's a possibility I'll run into Rogers without knowing he'll be there. I'll be breaking the law and not know it. Felony.
If I get a felony, I lose my job and license.
Wow! It's so simple when you put it that way. Why didn't anyone think of it before?
I can just see the enforcement...
