Rational thought be damned

Bill to ban crosshair symbols to be introduced in Congress:

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.”

You know, if we’re going to go to extremes like this to combat the problem… I say we go all the way.  How about a bill to outlaw knee jerking.

There’d be one helluva lot of law breakers out there on the left.

H/T Verum Serum.
