When leaders have lost the trust of the people, then, of course, the people will be disarmed. That includes the troops around them.
Frankly--and political correctness be damned--I'm truly amazed--shocked really--that some of our "leaders" haven't been taken out already.
I'm amazed they haven't disarmed the Secret Service as well. Like, who the hell would want to take a bullet for these guys? Perhaps they should substitute their SS guys with some of Obama's Chicago thugs. They'd probably be safer.
