This is what happens when we don't pay attention.
The President signed H.R. 347/S. 1794 into law on 3/8/12. Public Law 112-98 is the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act. It is also in direct opposition to the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
To see the text of the legislation, go to "http://thomas.loc.gov" and search for H.R. 347.
The short version is that any protest of national leaders (being protected by the Secret Service) can result in a felony conviction. If the President is moving from "a" to "b", and you are on the other side of the street, and you are holding a bullhorn and expressing negative feelings towards one of the President's many bad policies, you can be arrested and charged under this new law.
Someone needs to inform our local "representative," the Honorable Mr. Conaway, that his vote in favor of this anti-Constitutional piece of, er, legislation will be his undoing. Let us not forget that Mr. Conaway is in a primary contest this year with Chris Younts. Those "little L" libertarians out there that are "big r" Republicans can do your country a great service, and get rid of the Washington-based politician by voting for a small-government, true conservative alternative -- Chris Younts.
Contact Mr. Conaway and let him know we're tired of him selling us out for a committee position.
