By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Rep. Pete King’s dumb idea of banning the possession of privately owned firearms within 1000 feet of a “government official”.
While the rightosphere and, of course, the gunosphere, stand firmly against any law this stupid, the leftosphere is currently at odds with each other over the idea.
David Dayen at FDL is not liking it
But Crooks and Liars owner/oprtator, John Amato thinks King has struck gold
Thankfully, Speaker Boehner has said no dice to anything even remotely anti-2nd Amendment.
Let us all hope his spine stays intact.
