No special rules for politicians. You've chosen your career that goes along with the risks. All politicians should abide by the state's laws that they are currently in. No gun stashed in a jock strap while playing baseball could have prevented the shooting in DC. How many people have gone "postal" at their current or former job? This is a knee jerk response due to the closeness of what can happen at anytime to anybody. People, think this through. This was not preventable.
