58. Never.

If you think that TPTB will EVER let those that guard them be disarmed you are living in a total, utter and complete fantasy world.

Do you think the USSS is going to want to disarm in the face of the all the threats directed at POTUS plus other Federal Officials?

Do you think the mayors of major cities like NYC, Chicago, L.A. , D.C will tolerate having unarmed bodyguards?

Even if you disarmed the average cop-on the street, there is still going to be some upper level of cops that will have access to firearms just like in the UK with their "Armed Police" concept.

And the wealthy and powerful who are NOT in politics will always make sure that exceptions are written into law that will let them have armed bodyguards.

All you would end up doing is disarming the average person, which of course is the ultimate goal of the Gun Prohibitionist Movement.
