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."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
