Oh fo sho, and it's definitely standard procedure by the SS, but what makes this extraordinary is that they were actually denied access. I went to a Bush speech in '07 and there were protestors everywhere beforehand, and they were on hand during the speech. They just weren't as vocal because they didn't want to be down the sights of a scope.
