    New Bill Targets Gun-Related Images, Speech

    Has anyone seen this bill?

    http://www.broadcastingcable.com/art...ges_Speech.php

    Does this mean that in the future I might not be able to voice my opinion if I don't agree with a Congressman's / Congresswoman's political stance?

    Can you "put bulls eyes or crosshairs on" someone other than "a United States congressman or a federal official"? Or do some congressman see themselves as some kind of privileged class?

    Never mind. Stupid question.

    Sounds like the First Amendment is now in the crosshairs of the liberals, just like the Second.

    Only if your political views are right of center..... OK, OK, OK, only if your political views are closer to center than to the far left.

    Someone realized their loosing the gun-banning battle because more Americans support the right to keep and bear arms than oppose it. It's a last-ditch efforto shut us up.

    I don't think it'll get off the ground, but I wrote my Congressman just the same. This is one very dangerous bill to our rights as citizens in a free country.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Forget everything else, can we get some people in government who don't operate on pure political reflex? This is an utterly predictable move. It's practically childish. I doubt this'll get anything even resembling momentum, but if it does, I hope the Supreme Court squashes it with prejudice.
