The Secret Service detained, questioned and released a man who had a firearm in his vehicle as he pulled up outside the north Dallas home of former President George W. Bush. Secret Service spokesman, Ed Donovan, says the unidentified man showed up “uninvited” about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, saying he wanted to see Bush. While agents and Dallas police questioned him, the man revealed that he had a gun in his nearby vehicle. Donovan says the man had a permit for the gun and his answers checked out, so he was released and left. A Bush spokesman says the Bushes weren’t home at the time. The street leading to the house is blocked by a gate. Donovan declined to comment on how the man made it past the gate.
It is no secret that I was no fan of W. Bush but as I have always stated, I would speak out against anyone wanting to use violence against someone they had different political views unlike many I have heard from some others relating to President Obama. I cannot say that the person who drove up to the Bush’s Dallas home with a gun had ill will against the former President, but I am uncomfortable with the fact he did get so close with the gun.
As I too have several firearms but I would never drive up to the President’s home uninvited with one and ask to see the President. There is a responsible ownership involved here.
