Sign the Petition: Make the White House a Gun-Free Zone!

Via InstaPundit, we learn of the latest citizen-generated petition on the official White House site:

Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them

Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.

Heh. But really, the logic is hard to argue with. Schools are gun-free zones because we care so much about our children’s safety, right? Well, unless your children go to, say, Sidwell Friends. No need to take any risks where really important kids are concerned! Follow the link above to sign the petition, which has nearly 18,000 signatures so far.
