It is already against the law to shoot people, including politicians. Adding the 1000 ft barrier isn’t going to do anything more.
If a perp is determined to commit an act, a law of 5 ft or 5000 ft isn’t going to matter.
Rep King is just trying to jump on the political bandwagon.
He has no choice, he’s from NYC. Sorry FReepers from New York, but I don’t understand the fear of tools that most of the population there suffers from, if they aren’t wielded by someone with a union card.
“Rep King is just trying to jump on the political bandwagon.”
No, he’s just scared of getting shot, and also a stupid Liberal gun-grabber who has the usual Liberal delusion that gun laws work.
