A Modest Proposal

From a commenter at Legal Insurrection, I find the following:  From commenter gs, on 12/30/2012 at 12:04 pm.

1. A modest proposal:
Within the country’s borders, the only officials permitted armed federal escorts shall be the President, the Chief Justice, the Vice President, the Speaker of the House, and the Minority Leaders of the House and Senate.
2. An alternative:
Any level of the US government which utilizes armed escorts for its officials shall authorize its citizens to carry the weapons carried by those escorts. A lower level of government shall not prohibit weapons authorized by a higher level of government.
That's two proposals I can get behind.  I understand that some of the elected officials need a protective escort and those officials should be named.  I also believe that The People should have the same right to arms as enjoyed by our elected officials.   Let's level the playing field.
