    Secret Service doesn’t use any revolvers. NObody believes regulations or laws will pass to take away everyone’s guns carte blanche, but keeping them from nuts and “bad guys” can be done, but it will take time. A start is making ANY gun purchase at a minimum require the background checks, and training, I had to have for a concealed weapons permit. For large magazines, banning is the best idea, but at least requiring the intense background check, licensing, and taxes my nephew went through for a a LEGAL automatic “machine gun” for purchase…LIke his Uzi and MAC 11, these magazines have NO LEGITIMATE USE in civilian hands, except perhaps playing “manliness games” on a closed rangee.

    troutma, get ready for a stream of posts that state a variation of:
    And some others that claim that regualtion is futile because gun regulation can’t be enforced.
    And some others that say that knives are just as dangerous.
    And some that say we should ban alcohol and cars instead.
    Just getting ready for the ‘reasonable’ discussion.

    “Ahh, yes, I’ve been waiting for this. It is so nice that Mr. McCoy gives a voice to those who – for racial motives – would like to kill the President.”
    Morty, I think you’re having a detached from reality day. How you get a racial overtone from this escapes me. Add to that it is well established that most people of means in our society: politicians, sports figures, Hollywood celebrities, big name CEO’s etc, etc, are protected by armed security. Add to that there is no reference to disarming the Secret Service. Take a nap Morty, I think the time difference is affecting the reasoning part of your brain.

    Where do you see that we want to see the SS disarmed? We’re just seeing the hypocrissy of if Obama can have armed guards, why can’t WE protect ourselves as well?

    Do any of you have a clue what McCoy looks like? Where you might find him? What about JFK, RFK, MLK , Ford, Reagan…
    They lived large open lives and were targets of one sort of hate or another. And McCoy acts as if Obama, like any other U.S. President, is just an average citizen walking down the street? McCoy is just an effing jerk.

    Hey, Glen….

    How’d that work out for President Kennedy????

    How many guns were out there to “protect” him???

    How many failed???

    Take you hate mongering crap elsewhere, McCoy.

    “consider England an island nation with a complete firearms ban for anyone but the police, who NOW carry guns…fiearm use in crime and murder has gone off the chart.”

    Where on earth did you get this misinformation? There’s no “complete firearms ban” in England.

    “The estimated total number of guns held by civilians in the United Kingdom is 4,060,000”

    In the United Kingdom, annual deaths resulting from firearms total 2009: 138

    Rate of All Gun Deaths per 100,000 People In the United Kingdom, the annual rate of all gun deaths per 100,000 population is 0.22"

    What the heck was in your Kool Aid this morning?

    Glenn is just trying to point out the hypocritical attitude of the president (in a somewhat clumsy fashion), where it should be directed at the Hollywood elite that have guns or armed guards for protection, that would be more accurate.

    Protect? You had any six year olds in the line of legally registered and legitimately owned Bushmaster fire, Mr. McCoy? I’m thinking not.

    " to those who – for racial motives – would like to kill the President.

    Just like those who killed Kennedy and shot Reagan and Ford did it for racial motives.
    Do you ever read what you write and see how stupid it sounds?

    An editorial cartoon, like an op-ed column, represents the opinion of it’s creator. And the best of them — whatever side of the aisle they fall on – are well-informed and on-target. Not so Glenn McCoy.

    This is just another example of McCoy’s stock-in-trade — a meaningless political cartoon that makes no intelligent point, because it doesn’t reflect or comment on what’s really going on. There’s no contradiction between the President needing armed protection and society’s need to impose some sensible regulation on guns and those who would own them.

    Sorry just can’t agree. The question is self defense. Of course the President of the US should have the ultimate in secret service, state of the art and an increased defense budget to infiltrate terrorists out to destroy the US and its President.

    But why should an ordinary citizen not be able to defend himself against criminals. Check the numbers in Chicago, Detroit, Trenton etc. We are all entitled to defend ourselves.

    Jimatai; they do, you just never see the ones carrying them, and “long rifles” as well. Security reaches out as far as necessary.

    Tigger, where are you and Swr getting this drivel? Is that what Fox News is saying?

    First, as I showed above, the English citizens are not banned from guns. Second, why don’t you go to England and start firing off a handgun, and discover for yourself whether “In England the Police are also banned from carrying guns”.
