    Typical anti-gun logic. The 'little people' dont need protection (even though they are the target of the vast majority of crime) but the elite deserve armed guards and the right to carry themselves.

    i have yet to see anyone even try to mount an attack on my proposal that government officials cannot be protected by guards who use weapons of a higher specification than those allowed to other civilians in that jurisdiction

    I think any government official that supports limiting the Constitutional rights of law abiding citizens ought to forfeit any and all police or private protection. Just makes sense.

    In an ideal world, they would be thrown out of office for suggesting such limits and tried for treason if they actually tried to impose such laws.

    Still not sure how the anti-gun folks justify their logic. i mean...I get it. They hate guns. they are scary...they are eeeeevil...I get it. But to advocate that law enforcement should carry weapons to deal with violent criminals while ignoring the simple hard core reality that violent criminals do not TARGET law enforcement...thats just...goofy. To advocate that public figures be entitled to protection (yes, even the president) but not your average citizen...thats equally goofy.

    Making life harder for us common folk is their primary mission. If we're self sufficient, independent, happy and safe, the politicians can no longer justify their existence.
