Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011

As promised I want to let the fine men and women of Virginia who have perhaps not heard or wholly understand a piece of legislation which has just been passed nearly UNCONTESTED by the federal government despite vociferous opposition by the general public and most, if not ALL civil rights groups.

It is known as the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 and it is essentially a direct and complete violation of the 1st Amendment rights to freedom of assembly and freedom of speech.

The premise of the resolution, as enacted, is to prevent opposition or protest groups from convening on federal (or other) property when the (p)resident or anyone designated by the (p)resident to be a "special" person is scheduled to appear AND the White House. It includes additional punitive charges for anyone who carries a "weapon or firearm" (§1752(b)(1)(B)).

The government is more and more interested in protecting itself from public access, scrutiny and criticism. EVERY SINGLE GOVERNMENT in history which has employed these tactics (including that of Lincoln) has journeyed further towards tyranny before being turned back by righteous and rightfully disenfranchised citizens through force of arms.

Unfortunately the armies of Lincoln were victorious and that government now believes it not only has the right, but the DUTY to legislate limitations on freedoms which we consider unconditional.
