What if the government offical's wife has a carry permit and carries, does she have to stay a 1000 ft away? I'll that government offical will be a real hoot on a hunting trip.

So, I'm in the store and run into my Congressman...... instead of talking to him like I normally do..... I should run 1001 ft away so I'm not arrested ? My State Rep... shoots.... so I can't go shooting with him anymore ?
Everyone at the gun range will have to clear out ? His wife will be arrested, because she has her CCL ?
I guess Congressmen and Senators won't be invited on any hunting trips anymore... or can go hunting with their buddies either. Now some of Dick Cheney's friends may like that.
Do people ever think these things thru ?
Duh...... What BS.

Nah, the statutes fine. It's the lack of punishment that's the problem.

Let's run a scenario. BG shots and wounds someone in an armed robbery. Liberal judge and DA plea down the case to make it faster, and let them out with a slap on the wrist. BG get busted for armed robbery, firearm. Plea deal, or maybe one of those snazzy anklets. BG shoots at someone during a gang fight. Plea, bracelet. BG shoots and kills someone. It's all the right wing conservative gun owners fault.
I've got some ideas that WIL fix the problem though. To bad they are not actually interested in fixing anything.

Think about it at least in Texas.
More ridiculous knee jerk legislation
No guns at work, no guns at major sporting events, no guns in bars, no guns at church, none near a school zone, none at a college.
I have found that I am able to use my CHL in very few places and very few hours. I am a daily transit user and I would really like to carry on the bus and bus stops. However, I have no place to put my gun at work since guns are not allowed. I know this varies with each employer and church, but truly it is very confusing. I guess I can carry on vacation and when I retire.
How will a CHL holder even know where a "government officials" is?
There are states where the level of scrutiny is lax and I believe the screening of people who are mentally ill is fatally flawed. We need some intelligent rethinking of our approach to CHL.

Expect things to get crazy. While channel surfing recently I came across some rocket scientist named Lawrence O'Donnel making reference to "ammo control". I only caught a portion of his drivel but he seemed to suggest that if you can't go in a pharmacy and purchase sleeping pills in large quantities neither should you be able to do it with ammo. Idiotic reasoning to be sure but I expect to see such thinking coming down the pike any time now.

Don't have a gun within 1000' of a government official!

Normally I like King's way of thinking, he does seem to be playing to his district although Staten Island has a large population of Police/Fire/First responders who I would expect to more pro 2A. Just a thought, could he be making a sarcastic point?
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

Why I was wondering when they would get around to this. I'm sure the BG will be more than happy to observe this wonderful legislation that makes us all a more free and open society. May I kiss your ring O great one.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

I believe the legislation states that the "suspect" must know that he or she is in fact within 1000 ft' of a federal legislator or judge in order for it to be a crime. Still silly.

The history of high-capacity clips and magazines begins somewhere in the early 20th century. John Browning, the famed U.S. firearms designer, developed the basic concept of a magazine that could fire more rounds without reloading. The Browning Hi-Powered gun
first made its debut in 1935, nine years after his death, and used a staggered two-column magazine that held 13 rounds and one in the chamber.
