Republican congressman Peter King's proposed legislation creating 1,000-foot no-gun zones around congressmen and other high-ranking federal officials doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Speaker John Boehner is flatly against it, and gun-control advocates don't expect any gun-control legislation to be able to get through this Congress, much less one that, despite King's good intentions, would seemingly be impossible to implement.
