10. How do you screen 40,000 people going into a baseball stadium?

Other than maybe having them pass through metal detectors.

JFK said more than once, that a truly determined person could assassinate him, and he was right. If our presidents are going to go out in public at all, they are taking certain risks. I don't want them living inside a bubble. It was bad enough that during the Bush years protesters couldn't get within a couple of blocks of him. Perhaps they justified some of that in the name of safety, I don't know.

Also keep in mind that more an more people are getting concealed carry permits, open carry is more and more allowed, and someone who wants to get and carry a gun for the purpose of harming any public official probably isn't going to care much about the laws anyway.
