The eminently sensible Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C. delegate and longtime advocate of gun control who
sits on the Homeland Security Committee, has called on the Secret
Service to stop allowing all those assault-rifle-brandishing nutcases
near President Obama.

"It is clear that if the Secret Service can
temporarily clear all aircraft from air space when the president is in
the vicinity, the agency has the authority to clear guns on the ground
that are even closer to the President."
