Good idea, but wrong method...

John McCain is not my favorite presidential candidate. I think he has a disregard for the First Amendment. Now, in an effort to go after people who distribute child pornography, he is going to open up a lot of people to criminal liability for failure to dot an I or cross a T precisely.

We have reporting requirements. Follow them - simply have immunity if one can prove that an e-mail was sent to the FBI or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The other thing missing in this bill is to up the ante for child pornographers. Make the manufacturing and distribution of child pornography something worth the death sentence. Add in people who rape children under 12 and rapists who give their victims HIV/AIDS. Sentence to be carried out via the method used by old-school GRU personnel.
