Bernie Sanders was escorted by armed guards as he addressed an anti-gun march in Washington, DC.
Sanders live-streamed himself and his entourage of armed Capitol Police at the event on Wednesday while he waded through a crowd of gun control proponents:
At several times during the live stream, the guards blocked students from getting too close to Sanders.
Sanders likely felt well-protected by his Glock-carrying guards as he told marchers to have “courage to take out the NRA.”
It seems that Sanders wants gun control for everyone – except for his own security detail, a luxury a majority of Americans cannot afford.
Other gun control proponents also enjoy the security of armed guards, like late night host Jimmy Kimmel, for example, who actually beefed up his security over the past year due to the increasingly political nature of his show, including his demands for gun control.
“Ever since the late-night show host began crusading against the effort by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, there have been ‘incidents with Trump supporters’ that have forced him to increase security at his show tapings,” reported Mercury News. “In response, ‘the show has increased personnel at both the front and back entrances. This personnel consists of highly-trained, off-duty police officers.’”
Nearly every celebrity advocate of gun control has armed bodyguards – in other words, one rule for you, another rule for them.
Hence the hypocrisy of celebrities and government officials who demand strict gun control while being protected by armed bodyguards.
