Please sign (and have your friends sign) a White House Petition (the URL is below) to cause changes in gun control by allowing citizen possession of guns in Congressional and Supreme Count facilities, which under present law has severe penalties . The petition is in the spirit of Jonathan Swift's "A MODEST PROPOSAL" in which Swift suggests that the Irish eat their own children .
We petition to change the law related to US Code 18 USC § 930 - POSSESSION OF FIREARMS AND DANGEROUS WEAPONS IN FEDERAL FACILITIES which states " ..whoever knowingly possesses or causes to be present a firearm or other dangerous weapon in a Federal facility (other than a Federal court facility), or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 1 year, or both." and similarly for a federal court " ...not more than 2 years, or both...". We petition that the background law and USC be changed so that guns be knowingly possessed or presented in Congressional and Supreme Court facilities. At the same time the Congress and Supreme Court shall take no action which will give more protection from gun violence on Congressional and Supreme Count properties than is available, and demonstrated, to every US citizen in their home, workplace , school, theater, shopping mall, and other places.
Why the Petition: Since Congress and the Supreme court by their actions seem to feel that existing laws on gun control are acceptable to the average citizen, Congress needs to change the law and implementing USC to allow guns to be carried on Congressional Facilities and similarly Supreme Court Facilities. To not do so would mean they are hypocrites. By signing the petition we will assist Congress and the Supreme Count from being hypocrites, and thus allow them the enlightenment associated with the existing gun laws.
