Obama Signs Bill Giving Him Armed Protection For Life

While Obama is looking to disarm the USA and take away your gun right and the right to protect yourself he is making sure he is protected with your money.

The bill he signed for himself and his family will cost the American people millions of dollars and safe himself millions at the same time.

It brings up the old saying "do as I say, not as I do". He is no better them Bloomberg who hires "armed security guards" but denies fellow NYC citizens the right to self-protection

This was one of those stories that seemed hyped up just to get people worked up to me.

The bill was proposed by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, a former federal and state prosecutor serving on the House Judiciary Committee. The person most immediately affected is former President George W. Bush, who will now receive the same lifelong Secret Service protection that his father has received since leaving office in 1993.

Essentially it ended a two tiered system where former Presidents before 1997 received lifetime protection.

I am sure that all these people who have armed guards would let them go in the case of a gun ban. I mean...why would you need someone to protect you if guns become illegal? The criminals will have to throw all their guns away.

I think the bill is fine. Obama is going to need it more than any president ever. But the hypocrisy is there do doubt.

I agree with both of you... I can see the need for the bill. However, that is an admission that guns are a reliable, and sometimes necessary means of defense. I don't see how it's fair to restrict every other law abiding citizen who might be in danger from gangs, angry exes, rapists, or sociopaths from the same kind of protection.

Jesus, Tisiphone. You sure got a lot of people after you. No wonder you're armed.

Nobody's after me except for annoying customers and my landlady.

Am I the only one who thought Tisiphone's description of "gangs, angry exes, rapists, or sociopaths" sounded like just a normal weekend in Chicago?
