    We already have bodyguards. That's why normal users don't get to kill the
    president.

    If the presidents wife for some reason thinks she has a reason to take a
    shotgun to her president, that's not something bodyguards are there for. I
    think that you'll find that they don't have bodyguards in the presidential
    bedroom.
