Sign The Petition

This petition needs less than 3,000 additional signatures before Jan. 22nd in order to merit an official White House response. Head on over and sign it.  It will be interesting to see the arguments that they use when this is inevitably rejected (as it should be.)

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.

    A stupid idea that detracts from our real position, and makes us look like idiots. Are there really any conservatives who think the President of our country, no matter what party, shouldn’t have secret service protection, or that he doesn’t require special protection that normal, non-targets don’t?

    I certainly don’t want my kids surrounded by agents all the time. They don’t need it. We don’t really need armed guards in our schools either, because they aren’t really targets, except in exceptional circumstances. But that’s another issue.

    Here, we have some idiots formally requesting something that nobody wants, thinking that absurdity is a good communications tactic. IT isn’t.

    Worse, they clearly don’t understand how the petition process works, because Obama has already lumped together dozens of gun petitions, and “answered” them. Even if this gets to 25,000 signatures, Obama is just going to slap it into that list — and the response is his call for gun control.

    BTW, on the list of petitions that actually GOT 25,000 signatures, and for which Obama gave his pro-control response, was one petition that actually called for eliminating gun-free zones. At least it was a petition that actually called for something we WANT.

    That’s the funniest thing. It would serve these idiots right if Obama actually GAVE them what they asked for, removed protection from EVERY SCHOOL IN THE COUNTRY, and then said “hey, it’s what those gun nuts wanted”.
