Ready, Aim, OVERREACT!

Washington’s top five most ridiculous reactions to the Arizona shooting includes some pretty wacky ideas.

2. Impose a federal ban on carrying a firearm within 1,000 feet of any “high-profile” public official

New York Republican Rep. Peter King, with full approval from New York City’s freedom-loving mayor Michael Bloomberg, has vowed to introduce a bill that keeps all guns at least 1,000 feet from from him at all times.

Seriously, how are you going to enforce that? We can't even ensure a gun free school zone law and the school is a fixed point of geography. How do we keep a 1,000 foot bubble around a moving person?

Like I said, wacky.
