    Peter King's Law: Ban Guns Within 1000 Feet of Federal Officials

    Posted Tuesday, January 11, 2011 11:37 AM

    Congressman Peter King today also announced that he will introduce legislation that will make it illegal to knowingly carry a gun within 1,000 feet of the President, Vice President, Members of Congress or judges of the Federal Judiciary. In the United States, it is illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a school. Passing a similar law for government officials would give federal, state, and local law enforcement a better chance to intercept would-be shooters before they pull the trigger.

    It's a start.

    Requiring special licenses for carrying firearms would be another.

    Would a guy who sought to shoot 20-30 people respect laws about staying 1000' from a Federal official? Will a perimeter be enforced no matter where those officials go or what they do?

    Would Joe Manchin be breaking that law if he "shot" cap and trade?

    Gun control advocates will use any reason to advance their agenda.

    If the socialist, new world order, peacenic, liberal, anti second amendment, America haters can't take our guns away in one fell swoop, they're more than happy to do it in small steps, with bull shit laws like this.
