Petition to eliminate Secret Service and establish a gun free zone around POTUS


quote:

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.

White House Website

Thoughts?

ETA - WH now has to respond to petition.

ETA#2 - WH has changed the rules of the game and now probably won't respond.

Politicians aren't normal people. They're better than us and need to be protected at all times. God forbid something happen to them; I don't think we could get along without them.

If we're being intellectually honest, this petition makes perfect sense.. Unless of course, you don't truly believe in equality and that's only a talking point for you.

They're just simply a little more equal than us. David Gregory flaunts a high capacity magazine in DC on national tv and no charges are brought. A Marine vet traveling through DC has unused ammo in a backpack in his possession. He is prosecuted.

I'm pretty sure once it reaches 25,000 signatures the White House has to respond to it

I like it. Isn't Obama the president of the common man? Let him follow the same laws we all follow. What's he scared of?

I never signed one before becasue I didn't want to get on Obama's mailing list but this one was too good to pass up. They are 90% there.

Politicians work for us, we are their boss, not the other way around, sometimes I think they forget this.

Not any more.

Politicians seem to feel they are elected to a position of power, not a position of representation.

Bump.

The petition reached 25,000+ signatures and now the WH has to respond.

Gun free zone supporters on this board please chime in.
