An Unexpected Change

Imagine my surprise when I read that Republican Rep. Peter King is planning on introducing gun control legislation in the wake of the Tucson shootings.  According to the linked article, the legislation would mirror existing legislation prohibiting people from knowingly bringing a gun within a thousand feet of a school.  This proposed legislation would restrict people from doing the same in the presence of our highest federal officials. 

I just wonder how the NRA will vilify this proposed legislation, and see if this proposal goes anywhere in the House.  I am not holding my breath for passage.
