In response to Michael LaBrie’s Jan. 20 letter “NRA right in seeing double standard in armed guards for first family”: President Obama’s kids are no more important or deserving of protection than my kids. However, they have a higher profile, because Obama is a head of state. Heads of state around the world and their families can and do become targets for political assassination. Therefore, they have bodyguards.
