Let me get this straight--Gun Control

Time for the first-ever installment of "Let me get this straight."

So, let me get this straight: Republican senators who voted no on any form of gun control suddenly want a bill that makes it illegal to be carrying a gun within 1000 feet of them? Really? You don't want gun control for anyone unless it specifically protects you? I call bullshit on that. Don't be a hypocrite, if you want people to have easier access to guns, let them open carry, or buy an assault rifle, you can't throw a sissy-fit when one of them happens to walk by you.

I'm not totally opposed to guns, but also see where gun control makes sense. The idea of this law though? It serves no purpose other than to make some politicians feel safer from the very people they fought to make gun access easier for.
