The bill, unveiled by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on Tuesday, would have banned people from carrying guns within 1,000 feet of elected officials in Congress. It had the support of New York City mayor and outspoken gun-control advocate Michael Bloomberg.
King, who is chairman of the homeland security committee, presented his bill as a means to improve public safety for elected leaders.
I read on the news today that Representative Peter King (R-NY) announced he was going to submit a bill to outlaw firearms within 1,000 feet of elected members of congress.
May I humbly suggest you have a sit-down with your colleague and others of a like mind and tell them that if they insists on acting like a member of the aristocracy that the Republican Party is going to be one with the Whigs i.e. history.
We elect you folks to conduct the People's Business, not to interfere with ours.
Be damned if I'll support a party whose representatives are going to act like pusillanimous gentry.
