From your column:
"Funny thing is, politicians are themselves guarded, daily (sometimes nightly and routinely), by women and men (presumably good men) with guns. And no one, I mean no one in politics, would consider disarming their own guardians. So “gun control” is very selective indeed."
A thought occurred to me after reading the above quote, there is – improbable as it may be – historic, albeit negative, support for this apperception: I read recently that Senator Robert F Kennedy, D-NY forbade armed protection for himself in his campaign for the Democrat nomination in 1968. That race culminated in his assassination in Los Angeles by a single armed assailant Sirhan Sirhan.
