Likely a stunt, but I'd say it's going to do more to make him look stupid than anything else.
In the wake of the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and the murder of federal Judge John Roll, Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pa., says he plans legislation that would ban language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening federal officials and members of Congress.
Pointing to an existing federal law that criminalizes threats against the president and vice-president, Brady suggests the same provisions should apply to others in the federal government. But he goes further, saying his bill would mean "You can't put bull's-eyes or crosshairs on a United States congressman or a federal official."

(not that it makes a difference; I still think it's a stupid stunt and it'll probably backfire on him)

Would red dots on districts be allowed? I mean, that might be construed as a red laser sight.
Then it would just be racist.
