  1. Bloody hell, does he really have that many Secret Service agents swarming around him all the time?

  5. That's why you have the 2nd Amendment surely? Just in case guys like that decide that you can't have weapons and only they can.....
    If I was a US citizen I would be signing up with the NRA. Chuck is a member isn't he? And if they're good enough for him, I'm in.

    if other people didn't have guns then he wouldn't need so many to protect him from his own people.

    IIRC us presidents tend to be assassinated by us citizens. which is probably why tony blair made sure the citizenship were as disarmed as possible

  11. I await your solution on how to remove ALL of the estimated 40 million privately held guns from the US. If you fail in leaving only one, then such protection will still be needed. That is the whole point of how vacuuous our politicians are when they make noises about gun 'control."
     
  12. I surely hope not. JFK was by most objective measures a mediocre president but his getting himself shot in Dallas made him into an icon. We do not need another.
