Yes, this is another stupid idea by a Democrat. If we had only banned these symbols, the killer wouldn’t have carried out his deed.
From the NYTimes:
Representative Bob Brady of Pennsylvania told The Caucus he plans to introduce a bill that would ban symbols like that now-infamous campaign crosshair map.
“You can’t threaten the president with a bullseye or a crosshair,” Mr. Brady, a Democrat, said, and his measure would make it a crime to do so to a member of Congress or federal employee, as well.
Think the Supreme Court might have something to say about this since it violates free speech.
Asked if he believed the map incited the gunman in Tucson, he replied, “I don’t know what’s in that nut’s head. I would rather be safe than sorry.”
He continued, “This is not a wakeup call. This is a major alarm going off. We need to be more civil with each other. We need to tone down this rhetoric.”
How about a bill that forces the F.B.I. to actually conduct a background check. If they would’ve done their job, they would have found this nut to be deranged and he wouldn’t have been allowed a license to purchase a gun.
Up next will be talk about more gun control, despite the nutjob’s purchase being legal and passing the F.B.I. background check.
