 "House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) wants to make it illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official."

Srsly?  This effectively bars otherwise law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms anywhere there is any sort of government presence, as the average citizen may not know all their government officials on site (including postal workers, DMV clerks, etc who may happen to be shopping at the grocery store.)

It's also the sort of thing that is invented as a 'crime' so that prosecutors have an easier job convicting someone who commits a REAL crime.

Bullshit.

More stupidity from the bureaucrats.

I can think of at least two government officials (DMV workers in fact) within 500 feet of my residence.

Guess you won't be able to keep a gun at your house...

Might want to write your congressman and/or Peter King and remind them of the absurdity of such a law.

Won't ever become a law, Supreme court would lay the smackdown on them like they did the entire city of DC.
