    Gun Controller Schumer Has Armed Bodyguard

    The Senate's leading gun control advocate, Senator Charles Schumer - who's currently pressuring the White House to extend the 1994 assault weapons ban - travels with an armed bodyguard, NewsMax.com has learned.

    Questions arose Wednesday morning about the gun opponent's security arrangements after the New York Post's Cindy Adams mentioned in her column that Schumer appeared at a recent event with a bodyguard in tow.

    A quick call to Schumer's office confirmed that the man guarding the Senate's number one gun controller was packing heat.

    "He's a New York police detective," the Senator's spokesman revealed to NewsMax. When asked whether Schumer's detective was indeed armed, the spokesman replied, "I would imagine so."

    Sensing a public relations problem in the making, the Senator's spokesman explained that his boss "believes in the second amendment and the right to bear arms."

    "So I don't think there's anything inconsistent about it," he insisted.

    In recent days Sen. Schumer has mounted a campaign to get the White House to actively press Republicans in Congress to back an extension of the 1994 assault weapons ban, which he sponsored.

    "We hope the president will not just say he supports the ban but will work to get it passed," the New York Democrat told reporters last week, adding, "This will be a good measure of the compassion in his compassionate conservatism."

    No doubt the good Senator's armed bodyguard agrees.

    "Hypocrite" and "liar" do not adequately describe this creature.

    Ted Kennedy's bodyguard got stopped at the US Capitol metal detector a few years back. He had a FA Uzi and a handgun or two under his coat, with no paperwork for any of them.

    Just another day in the life of the gun grabbers... :cuss:

    Hey Upchuck "The Schmuck" Schumer:

    I will give up my guns 30 YEARS after you and your armed thugs you call "bodyguards" give up your CCW's tickets and guns. (1)

    And you resign your Senate seat to a Strict Constitutionalist Republican Replacement, (2) after telling all you know about your partner in crime, Sen Hitlery Klintoon. (3)


    Deal? ? ? You go first, UpChuck. Start with parts 2 & 3, above.

    well lets consider here......he is a famous political figure, someone might have enough ill will against him to do him harm....so he deserves protection, but we dont, because we are not as good as he is, and as we know, since i am not a politician or a law enforcement officer, i cannot have a gun to protect myself from carjackings, muggings, robberies, assaults, etc etc

    Yeah, and it's going to snow in New Orleans on Independence Day, too! Leftists are moral and intellectual parasites.

    I'd be willing to pay good money to know the make, model, and capacity of the weapon this putz's bodyguard carries.

    Does he think the bodyguard would actually be able to protect him from a determined attacker? Defense in unsecured zones is so much more difficult than assassination.
