liberal knee jerk legislation is on the way

Forty eight hours after the shooting of a congresswoman in Arizona and the democrats are already formulating legislation to make it a federal crime to threaten a congressman.

Dems planning bill
Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.

Brady told CNN that he wants federal lawmakers and officials to have the same protections against threat currently provided to the president. His call comes one day after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot, along with 19 other people, at a public event in Tucson. A suspect is currently in custody.

"The president is a federal official," Brady told CNN in a telephone interview. "You can't do it to him; you should not be able to do it to a congressman, senator or federal judge."

Once again, liberals believe all that is involved when dealing with degrading and eroding social mores, is legislation specific to the behavior they wish to control or limit.

How convenient. Wouldn't that be something interesting if they get this law passed. Will it mean that you won't be able to criticize your congressman or senator? Probably, but especially if they are democrat and can articulate any fear of your words.

Watch how this unfolds. Not only are we about to see another round of attacks on the second amendment, but they are now going to be coming after the first amendment. And all under the auspices of providing a safer political environment.
