No need to arm

their guards

A letter writer suggested that pro-Second Amendment presidential candidates such as Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz should stop screening for guns at any speech, gathering or event they attend [“No need to screen for weapons,” Letters, Jan. 24].

Allow me to go him one better. How about all the pro gun-control liberals — such as President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg — completely disarm their families’ bodyguards and security details? After all, what better way for them to illustrate their commitment?
