    Someone Worth Remembering

    Someone Worth Remembering

    Rep. Peter King, a Republican from New York, is planning to introduce legislation that would make it illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official, according to a person familiar with the congressman’s intentions.”

    This is really, really stupid. And, of course, Bloomberg is allegedly in favor of it.

    On the other side of the same ridiculous coin there is Rep. Brady (D-PA) who “plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.”

    You can’t legislate away lunatics, folks. However, some Congressmen – who hopefully have better (or at least more benign) things to do – plan to atrophy free speech and the second amendment in order to give the illusion of their security.

    In the midst of this media firestorm and the subsequent proposal of moronic laws, I hope you take the time to read a particularly thoughtful article by Matthew Shaffer in NRO. Dorwan Stoddard will not have his name in history books, but he sure deserves my attention more than some bloviating legislative cow (or news anchor).

    There was once hope for Peter King. Now I don't know.

    Why is it every time something bad happens, members of Congress try to figure a way to make it worse. In the act of make themselves feel safer, the will make the rest of us less safe. Being from New York, Mr. King, how are all the gun laws in your state working out? Any body get shot lately?

    Bill and I have been neighbors for thirty years.
    He’s a dyed in the wool Democrat. I’m a dyed in the wool Republican.
    He thinks Barak Obama is the greatest president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. I think Ronald Reagan was the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.
    He tells me a “good read” is Eugene Robinson. I tell him to read George F. Will.
    He says his favorite blog is the Daily Kos. I tell him mine is Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion.
    He thinks Keith Olbermann deserves an Emmy Award. I think Bill O’Reilly does.
    He tells me “tea parties” are for little girls. I tell him The Tea Party is for true patriots.
    He's an Atheist. I'm a Christian.
    Bill owns a gun and knows how to use it. So do I.
    We play golf together every chance we get.

    I can understand that they are a little freaked out over this, but this knee jerked reaction is how we ended up with DHS and many other bad things after 9/11.

    Shouldn't the proposed 'law' say "No speeding bullets allowed" within 'x' feet/inches of a Congresscritter's torso/cranium etc.?
    Here is my proposed law, in three parts: 1)No criminal shall commit any crime using an illegally acquired firearm. 2) No criminal carrying any firearm shall conceal it in anyway whatsoever, but may not carry it in the hand. 3) Every carjacking victim, store clerk, home break-in target, etc. etc., must be notified of the crook's intentions no less that two hours ahead of time before making his move.
    "Have I left anything out…? What do you mean it won't work?"
