It is commonly accepted that celebrities have to deal with a higher degree of personal risk when going out into public. Should celebrities be allowed special permission to bring their own armed security personnel into gun free zones?
Bunch of hypocrites.
How about we don't have gun free zones and make guns legal everywhere, it's known that shootings happen in gun free zones
Nope. They can stay home.
Oh! Hell no!
Absolutely. We all know that celebrities are completely responsible all the time...
By going out, they take the risk. That's just going to encourage their protection to be more trigger happy. Why are they so special anyway?
Eliminate gun-free zones. Problem solved.
HELL no! Especially if they campaign against disarming the rest of us!
And if they DO campaign for disarming the rest of us, NO ARMED SECURITY AT ALL! And the SAME FOR POLITICIANS!
No. They shouldn't get special privileges just because they are famous.
The law should be the same for everybody. I disapprove of giving special privileges to celebrities.
It's impossible to tell where to set the limit with that..how famous do they have to be?
Exactly, if you're going to make an exception; it should be for danger, not for celebrity.
No. Don't go there.
Only the anti gun ones!
Hell, they're some of the most vocal against guns. Why should we give them special treatment that they feel us common folk don't deserve?
Oh the poor celebrities.
No, just regular bodyguards.
When was the last time a celeb was attacked/killed by the public?
What's the point of having gun laws then if the "celebrities" don't have to follow them also?
Their life is no more important than mine.
no, A) gun free zones shouldn't exist, and if that were the case this wouldn't be an issue.
and B) giving someone permission to bring guns into a gun free zone is admitting that they don't work and people are safer when they have guns.
I've got an idea. lets send Obama to go hang out in a gun free zone for a while, (leaving all of his guns behind of course), and see how well gun free zones work.
All equal under the law applies to everyone. Except the monarch, of course. "I pass laws for everyone but me!"
We are all at personal risk. Try asking the 3 that were shot dead (this year) at Ft Hood. Who cares about Beyonce? My life is valuable too.
That happened because criminals don't follow laws. Gun free zones are, in essence, idiotic. It makes no sense to keep law abiding citizens from protecting themselves from unlawful ones.
I vote no, mostly because I don't think celebrities should be treated as if they are gods. They are people too, they don't deserve it.
I like the "should the GOP fight Obama on gun control" add in the link. Do people STILL think he's coming for their guns?
..and yes. Private security should be allowed to carry.
Except for Rosie, she hates guns so bad that her guards should have to carry water pistols.
Rosie doesn't need armed guards. That's like saying Godzilla needs a bodyguard.
I'm afraid you got me there. Lol!
Like Emma watson? all that means is the rich have their own rules.
Haven't you been paying attention? We do.
They do, don't they? I thought armed, celebrity bodyguards got a pass to go anywhere.
Do you mean celebrities who are bodyguards or bodyguards who guard celebrities?
Bodyguards who guard celebrities :)
Milk, are you checking that EBs blonde is root deep?
Just asking for clarification.
