A deservedly popular White House petition is available for you to sign, one that reminds those who serve in government that they are our employees, rather than our “betters.” Here’s the text:
We petition the Obama administration to:
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.
As of this post, the petition needs only 6,794 more signatures before the White House has to address. The White House, of course, will not address it seriously, so the substance of this petition should live on in Congress.
