Rep. Peter King, a Republican from New York, is planning to introduce legislation that would make it illegal to bring a gun within 1,000 feet of a government official, according to a person familiar with the congressman's intentions. Will removing guns within 1,000 feet of a government office going to stop criminals from killing? Gosh I hope it works. I see no way that a criminal will get past that law and kill another government employee. One thing though, does that mean that people with guns can't walk or drive by a government office if they have a CCW? It kind of sounds to me like this new legislation wasn't thought out too well. It almost seems like a token rather then legislation that will do something. When will we start thinking with our heads instead of our hearts? We will never ever take away guns from the criminals by taking guns away from the citizens. Chicago tried it and crime went through the roof. I lived in Japan where guns are illegal and have been for a very long time before I got their in the 90's. The police didn't even have guns. But the Yakuza-Japanese mafia-all had guns. I'd never seen such a thing in my life and I pray I never do. Guns,just like pipe bombs are not our enemy no matter how much they say they are. And crazy violence already is illegal and we haven't found a cure for that one yet. When you look at the full picture of 80 million gun owners in America fishing boats are more dangerous then guns. If we don't start taking an honest look at the problem we can never find a solution. And if there is no solution to insanity then so be it. Is there a way we can debate this as a nation without it getting heated on both sides?
