H.R. 347 Makes You a Criminal for Protesting Around Protected Politicians

Well, Obama has done it again. First he signs off on ACTA right under our noses, an internet censorship bill potentially more dangerous than SOPA and PIPA, done at the international level through bodies like the WTO and the UN to further undermine state sovereignty.
Then he approves the civil rights raping NDAA on new year’s eve, a law that gives the executive dictatorial powers to use the military to detain anyone in the world, including American citizens within the United States, under suspicion of terrorism or “acts in coordination with or pursuant to the direction of al-Qaeda,” by an unelected intelligence body who’s definition of terrorism itself is inconsistent and nebulous.
Now our dictator in chief has authorized H.R. 347, a bill that is a direct attack on our first amendment rights, which some claim is a direct response to the Occupy protests.
The act, known as the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011” has amended sec. 1752 title 18 of the US code to say:
(a) Whoever (1) knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be punished as provided in subsection (b); (2) a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.
