  • kochoanyAs if halting the production sale of firearms would make a difference in the decision of someone crazy enough to try and assassinate the president...criminals will always get guns...
  • tristinshoutDoesn't mean we can't do everything we can to make it more difficult...
  • boilerbrianSteel cage?
  • samson85A steel 'bullet proof' cage for everyone but the President, that will make everyone safe, including him. Oh and there is sand so everyone can put the heads in it and pretend nothing bad ever happens in the world. That will make things really difficult for those that want to do harm.
