Bob Brady (D-PA) wants to ban crosshairs on maps.
Their response to the attempted assassination of a Congresswoman is to restrict free speech. Disgusting, but really, that’s their response to just about anything.
POSTSCRIPT: Is Google in trouble?
UPDATE: From execrable to risible. It turns out that the crosshairs from the Palin map aren’t crosshairs, but crop marks, used in printing. Are we going to ban printing?
UPDATE: I’m not surprised that the proposed legislation is unconstitutional.
UPDATE: More idiocy: a proposal to ban guns within 1000 feet of a “high-profile government official.” A 72-acre hole in the Second Amendment around every Congressman. (This one is from a Republican. The man needs a primary.)
