    Why don't they just make it illegal to murder someone.

    So I suppose the murder statute is not doing the job.

    I like that!


    Bloomberg is supposed to back this so I just hope it doesn't get any teeth. This is the worst thing I've ever heard of. What are we gonna do put GPS on all the officials so we can know where they are at all time so we don't run afoul of the law.

    Hmmm... ok,.... so everyone who is a Government Official needs to carry a (might as well say white) flag on an 8 foot pole and wave it in the air, so that anyone carrying a concealed weapon runs far away so they are not within 1000 feet of G.O.

    I think the wheel fell off the cart.

    Edit: Now that I read the link, I'm not surprised to see it's someone in NY pushing it. What an idiot.
    The average citizen has no way of keeping track of every Government Official at all times and knowing exactly where they are so as to avoid being within 1000' of them. This ridiculous that he would even think that is logical.

    The problem with this country is that most "officials" think that they are a higher class of human being than everyone else.

    When one of them gets whacked it temporarily forces them to understand for a fleeting moment that they can bleed and die just the same as anyone else. That realization is what truly horrifies some of them...so they take it upon them selves to try to get some feel good legislation passed so that they can sleep better at night.

    What they don't realize it that no written law will prevent a man from becoming lawless if is he so compelled.

    In the mean time, the rest of us become burdened and in some cases harassed by stupid laws.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I suspect the term "government official" can easily be expanded to include ANY gov employee like, say, Ted who's an IT guy working at the state capitol building or Agnes who files applications at the SSN office.

    "I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts."
    Will Rogers


    Never argue with idiots - they'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience

    " The country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of the hammer "Will Rogers

    "Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional,
    illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream
    media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end**.**" Author Undetermined


    "Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress.... But then I repeat
    myself."Mark Twain


    "If you put the government in charge of the desert, there would be a sand shortage within ten years." - A very wise man

    If pro is the opposite of con, is progress the opposite of congress?

    Will Rogers:
    Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke


    And lastly,, one of my favorites,

    Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it. Mark Twain

    Other than that,I got nuthin'
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn

    Representative King is an idiot. Half the Missouri Legislature is packing. Staffers who all also packing couldn't talk face to face with the boss.

    I'd turn it around, and make it a crime for a government official to come within 1000 feet of someone carrying a gun! After all, they're a government official - they should know better!
