    Obviously because his life and the lives of his family are worth far more than the taxpayers who foot the bill.

    It seems to me that if there are people who think having guards for our children is a crazy and nutty idea, than logically, having them for the President would be moreso. After all, our children are more valuable than the President.

    Yet, there are countless people acting as though it's just insane to think about arming security to protect our schools. I mean I can see being against it. But just claiming it's insane without making effort to actually address the idea intellectually lazy to me.

    Guns don't kill assassins. Secret Service agents do...

    Because the president is an obvious target for assasination.

    I haven't gotten involved much in the gun debate because I don't care, but I will say this...

    Obama's daughters attend a heavily armed school, for obvious reasons of course. But it definitely begs the question of why shouldn't any other school be armed.

    When you and your friends stop making ridiculous arguments to limit the rights of your fellow citizens.
