New York Republican Rep. Peter King said Tuesday that he will introduce legislation to ban the carrying of any firearm within 1,000 feet of what he described as “high-profile government officials.”
Ok, let's ignore the "You could be arrested for having a gun two blocks away on the other side of a damned building" bullcrap; this is more "Us public officials should get special consideration because we're more important than the peasants" garbage.
No, you're not, Mr. King and Mr. Clyburn; you're just a couple of public employees with delusions of importance; and if you actually believe you should get these special considerations, you should be removed from those offices. Get it straight: YOU ARE NOT OUR DAMNED BOSS, and we're pretty damned sick of you thinking you are.
