    i wonder if they though of banning firearms near government officials....

    from the facebook page of justing amash:

    Later today, we're scheduled to vote on H R 347, which makes it a crime to accidentally get too close to a government official who has Secret Service protection. It also bans protests that disrupt government activities. When will Congress stop acting like a ruling class and start acting like public servants?

    If this bill comes to a roll call vote (rather than a voice vote), it's likely to pass with overwhelming support, as it did when it first came through the House in 2011. Only Paul Broun, Ron Paul, and I voted "no" on this bill last February:

    The only reason that a goverment has to fear the "legal citizen" is when they are up to no good. Looks like they are up to no good and are scared.

    And what happens if the government official gets too close to you while youre standing still?

    Good ol government trampling my rights...
    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    After the Tucson shooting I remember seeing a federal bill that would make it illegal to carry within 1,000 feet of a congressperson.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
    - Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436
