Just saw a comment on Facebook - picture of the shooting of Ronald Reagan which showed him lying on the ground surrounded by armed Secret Service bodyguards, one with an Uzzi type machine pistol the others with hand guns. The commentator simply remarked, "What a pity he was not accompanied by an armed school teacher"!

Nice one. A teacher from the afflicted school (BBC) asked if the president carried a concealed weapon to defend himself and his staff in the Whitehouse.

If it was an Uzi, you'd have to wonder why they trust Israeli manufacturing over US models.

Should that have been "defend himself FROM his staff?" There are plenty who would be happier without him there.

The thing that gets me about the USA is that they can always be guaranteed to get the man who kills the president.
Ultimately, there are no guarantees of keeping Mr Pres alive.
