ATTACK on Free Speech Begins: Democrat to Introduce Bill Banning "Crosshair Maps" !!!UPDATE!!! Dems Going After Gun Access As Well

So it has Begun...
According to an Article on The Right Scoop, Democrat Bob Brady of Pennsylvania is going to introduce a Bill to Ban Crosshair Maps:

"Representative Bob Brady of Pennsylvania told The Caucus he plans to introduce a bill that would ban symbols like that now-infamous campaign crosshair map.

"You can't threaten the president with a bullseye or a crosshair," Mr. Brady, a Democrat, said, and his measure would make it a crime to do so to a member of Congress or federal employee, as well.

Asked if he believed the map incited the gunman in Tucson, he replied, "I don't know what's in that nut's head. I would rather be safe than sorry."

He continued, "This is not a wakeup call. This is a major alarm going off. We need to be more civil with each other. We need to tone down this rhetoric."

What is soooo Amazing about this is that the Palin Crosshair Map had NOTHING to do with this Leftest, Anarchist, Nut job's Actions.... NOTHING.

Looks like they have the Progressive Playbook in Full Swing...

According to an Article on The Blaze, the Democrats are also Going after Gun Access:

"Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., one of Congress’ fiercest gun control advocates, is looking to strike while the iron is hot. “My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told Politico Sunday. Rep. McCarthy said that she plans to meeting with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” this week.

At the same time, another New York Democrat is blaming the pro-gun community for Saturday’s violent shooting. In a statement Sunday, Rep. Carolyn Maloney exclaimed that “guns kill” and that “those who glamorize gunplay or worship gun ownership do no service to humanity.”

Despite being a Palin supporter, I had never even heard of "Palin's crosshair map" before this. So I googled "crosshair map" and guess what I found. The only refernces to Palin's map occurred after the shooting. If it was so offensive, why was nothing said before this?

I remember seeing ones of George Bush on Photobucket years ago, where was the outrage then?

Why ban crosshairs when It could tax, redistribute, subsidize and ration them? I feel secure knowing Bob Brady is “keeping the American people safe” from freedom of expression.

"We need to tone down this rhetoric."-Bob Brady.

I agree, Bob. It would be great if the radical violent revolutionary left-leaning statists toned down the "violent overthrow" rhetoric. Perhaps that should start with Frances Fox-Piven, the champion of the left, who just a few days ago called out for a angry revolution from the left.
Could the Giffords attack be the opening salvo of the revolution THEY asked for?

There was a shooting in 1998 by a lone gunman where two policeman were killed. The gunman entered Tom Delay's office, apparently lookimg for Delay. The shooter has been in a mental institution since the shooting. There will be calls for more Gun Control as well as more security for the politicians. There will be calls to "tone down the rhetoric" coming from Conservatives and the Tea Party Patriots in an attempt to silence them. However, will the MSM and the Statists call for a change in tone themselves? Dave Weinbaum pointed out the following statements made by Barack Hussein Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice as hard.
Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks … so I know whose ass to kick.”
Obama to voters: “Republican victory would mean hand to hand combat.”
Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to fight for it.”
Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
Obama to Democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”
Naturally, when something like this shooting occurs the Tea-Party is going to be the first to be blamed by the Statists and the so called Main-Stream Media. The Statists are also blaming Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. When a disgruntled person flew his plane into the IRS building the Tea-Party was the first to be blamed. When Russ Carnahan’s office was firebombed the Statists and the Main-Stream Media were so hoping it was a Tea-Party member. I prefer to wait till the facts of the case come out to lay blame.
Nevertheless, there is angst in this country, a mistrust of government brought on by Barack Hussein Obama, the Statists and their policies of control and the loss of freedom on the people. The Statists pit one group of Americans against another, using class envy and race-baiting. Remember, the Tea-Party came about because of an overreaching Government.

Let's examine this. Congress wants to outlaw "Crossharir Maps". What about movies that depict the assination of the President of the United States? We heard very little concern for Bush's safety, when that movie was making the rounds
