The political class responds poorly. Again.

Another politician signs on to support a law banning mentioned earlier.

Next, Rep. Peter King said Tuesday that he will introduce legislation to ban the carrying of any firearm within 1,000 feet of what he described as “high-profile government officials.”

What the Hell is wrong with these people?

    Sorry to burst Mr. Kings bubble, but he’s just a citizen, not a … regent. And nobody is more or less deserving of protection from lunatics.

  2. ViolentIndifference Says:

    6000 feet of cops linked arm in arm circling all “high-profile government officials” would be a boon to jobs…

  3. John Smith. Says:

    What do you expect from a bunch of dipshits…

  4. Phelps Says:

    Thats fine. I can make a 400 yard shot.

  5. Kristopher Says:

    They are starting to panic.

    They have tightened the bolts to point where the real nuts are starting to pop off, and it scares them.

  6. Ron W Says:

    They are responding to evil with evil.

  8. Mad Saint Jack Says:

    As long as all government officials wear a very loud warning siren around their neck so we know where they are.

  9. Drake Says:

    The most recent congress had an approval in the low teens, and they marvel at just how bad things are getting?

  10. John Richardson Says:

    Now I could support a law banning high-level government officials from being armed if they are within 1,000 feet of me. King’s law, nah.

  11. Tirno Says:

    It would be more direct and to the point to ban such people from being within 1000 feet of any firearm. No exceptions.

    A little amendment to the bill could accomplish this.

  12. Firehand Says:

    Because he and Clyburn & Co. think they’re a superior being to us peasants. Instead of realizing that they’re hired help that’ve forgotten what they are

  13. hellferbreakfast Says:

    Disarmed people are cerfs, not citizens. Guess most of us just don’t “know our place”.

  14. Chas Says:

    The right to keep and bear arms is not contingent upon the proximity of politicians, even if they are arrogant New York RINO’s like Peter King.
    The definition of “high-profile government official” will eventually include your mailman.

  15. K-dAUG Says:

    Crazed delusional psychopaths aren’t just responsible for mass killings, they are also responsible for ridiculous legislation.

  16. comatus Says:

    Unfair to Cerf. He was witty, a bon vivant, and Ayn Rand’s editor at Random House. He’s suffered enough.

  17. hellferbreakfast Says:

    Our nation is ill. A cancer called “corrupticus politicianus”. Until the cancer is removed, the nation will continue to suffer.

    Well, they already get special treatment in some states. In Virginia, they can carry concealed without a permit, while us serfs ordinary citizens have to jump through the hoops to prove we’re law abiding, first.

  19. Mike Says:

    I agree 100% with Kristopher: they’re scared to death.

    The mentality inside the Beltway is extremely conformist; the media’s narrative is far too often accepted as Truth. If the NYT/WaPo says it, then it must be so. Many of our Congresscritters have been in office since the days when the MSM controlled the narrative, set the tone of the Nation, and they (the critters) have not really kept up with the socio-technological changes taking place outside the New York-DC axis. Our leaders don’t “get” the new Media, or even talk radio.

    Don’t be surprised if they actually believe the garbage spewing out of the pie-holes of assorted left-wing pundits: (1) Loughner was a right-winger; (2) he was willing and able to kill; (3) it’s open season on liberal politicians.

    They’re scared. For the first time since 1968 (assassination of RFK and MLK, the riots that followed MLK’s assassination, etc.), the politicians are truly and honestly scared.

    Does anyone recall what happened in late 1968, after all of these bloody events? In October of that year, LBJ signed the Gun Control Act. The bloodshed and civil unrest seen that year mobilized support for what had been a moribund effort in Congress. Politicians were afraid for their lives, and afraid of a massive armed revolt on the streets. GCA was their response.

    Do not underestimate what Congress is capable of whilst in the grip of a powerful existential fear.

    I anticipate the cluster-f*ck of a situation when a “high-profile government official” is at a shopping mall containing a sporting goods store.

  21. Mayor Joel Stoner Says:

    I read the comments on the linked site, and the comments here, and the one thing no one brought up was the BEAR part of the second amendment. Post Heller, this proposed legislation is invalid before even being debated. What we need is a group in congress that is required to read and review fully all proposed legislation and compare it to law books on court cases, and the constitution, to determine if it will hold constitutional muster. And to list the specific power granted to the specific body House or Senate that says they have the power to pass such a law. I would expect to see a law passed changing legalese into plain English.

  22. Huck Says:

    I’d prefer a law, like we another one, that bans politicians from getting within 1000 feet of the public.

  23. DirtCrashr Says:

    But what if you have a low-profile upper? Will the low-profile officials become second-class citizens?

  24. Firehand Says:

    They’re not already?

  25. sleepyhead Says:

    Yeah because that law would have stopped this all from happening. Maybe someone should pass a law against mass murder or even murder on a small scale.

  26. nexyjo Says:

    why don’t they just make a law that you get “flagged” if you get kicked out of school for being crazy, so it will show up when you try to buy a gun via the background check. instead of, you know, making it more illegaler to kill someone.

  27. bob r Says:

    If they’re worried about getting shot, maybe they should stop doing whatever it is that makes people want to shoot them.

    Personally, I suspect _most_ members of the “ruling” class (to include judges, executives and legislators) are not capable of stopping such activity. And the few that are capable are well aware that those around them are not.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
