Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them
Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.
OK. I also posted your petition and link on another website. And I think I’ll email it to my list.
It is frustrating that so many people cannot understand the disconnect in their thinking.
I couldn’t get to it, good luck with this.
Why did you leave out Senators and Congressman? I think we need to make everyone equal.
I’m happy to include them as well, but I tried to keep the wording brief.

Check out article, then see hotlink at # 5, or here:
Thanks, Cicero. There was an article stating the de facto _resident also has six armed guards paid with our tax dollars.
I’ve taken this position from the beginning since it happened - if Sasha and Malia are precious enough to have protection with armed guards, then all of our children should be important enough. It’s OK for their kids to be properly safeguarded and ours are stuck in gun free zones where the good guys are unarmed and the insane/criminal element know it. This is ludicrous and the lefties need to be called out on it.
Seems to be very Democrat to deny protection for the unprotected.
Its often been observed that perception is more important than reality. The observation is often correct. It is never MORE CORRECT than for those weve come to call liberals. I prefer statist but liberal has morphed from its classic meaning to the other end of the spectrum so Ill stay with it.
Since these folks operate almost entirely on EMOTION and FEELING, REALITY seldom allows FACTS to intrude upon the delusional worldview they have constructed and the comfort that provides them. It is that illogical, irrational and delusional mindset that prompts many of them to continue to quest after a Utopian society. The thought that such a society can and will never be achieved in a fallen world populated with failed sinners never penetrates whatever remains of their cognitive consciousness. Its a DANGEROUS WORLD and, as the liberals continue to define deviancy down, it becomes more dangerous daily.
There is another, far more sinister, level of the liberal call for gun control.
It was Mencken who offered that The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the URGE TO RULE. He clearly had been a student of the liberal politicians of his day. Were he alive today and able to observe the likes of Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Obama and the rest, hed almost certainly have used far stronger language to frame his sage observation.
To conclude, dozens of studies reveal the FACTS concerning gun control. Those FACTS are that where firearms are widely and READILY available to law-abiding citizens, CRIME GOES DOWN! The liberals who willfully ignore the FACTUAL EVIDENCE and continue to call for gun control (i.e. the DISARMING of DECENT CITIZENS, thereby denying them the ability to exercise their God-given right to self-defense) are those about whom Mencken wrote: Their goal is NOT about preserving life. It is about the hell-bent pursuit of the impossible to achieve Utopian world where all are equal but some (thatd be THEM) are MORE equal than others (thatd be US).
There are many PRO-RTKABA videos on You Tube that your often busy lives dont allow you to find on your own. Search there for Gun Control, watch them and, more importantly SHARE THEM with the folks in your orbit.
Were in a fight. And losing will ultimately cost us much more than our right to our guns.

“Seems to be very Democrat to deny protection for the unprotected.”
From another article:
“He (the NRA’s LaPierre) added that the United States is now spending $2 billion to train police officers in Iraq and asked why federal funds could not be spent to train school guards to protect schools in the United States.”
And that’s a damned good question.
So what’s it gonna be, you democrat dirtbags?
Are you Democrats going to put our money where your mouths are?
Or are you Democrats going to keep mau-mauing gun control?
I think we know the answer to that, Democrats.
You Democrats are despicable creeps waving the bloody shirts of 20 children.
We’re pro-life, you Democrats are not.
Are you enjoying our $4,000,000.00, Barry?
How much of that is for your security?
Well just damn! Fancy that!
They also want your personal information, which I don’t give out on these sites.
Thought it might be worthy of your lists.
A lot of those veterans are coming back looking for jobs. Seems to be a perfect opportunity to solve two problems at once.
I don’t particularly like that either, but in this case I was happy to provide it because I want to make sure my name is on their ‘list’.
I’m already on too many “lists”-—LOL!
Use a fake name and a throwaway email
Thank you for posting your very excellent response.
In the spring, I am taking my GD to DC to see the sights. We had to apply for tickets to tour the WH and are awaiting word for clearance from the Secret Service. This is an outrage, and waste of taxpayer $$$ IMO.
FWIW, we just came back from Cabela’s ...the gun dept. had rows and rows of chairs set up ...looked like a DMV waiting room. The wait for a background check was over 3 hours, said folks whom we spoke to. At least Cabela’s was nice enough to be serving coffee to customers.
Okay—I can do that.....
Thanks for your help everyobody. The petition got the necessary 150 signatures this morning to make it go public!
Just checked and it has over 2300 signatures. Thanks again!
Now past 5,000. Growing fast!
Now over 8,226. So close to 1/3 the way there, it hardly matters... in only three days after making the initial 150. This is going over the top.
As of now, the petition has 14,934 signatures and still climbing!
33,110! Still waiting for my official response.
