WASHINGTON — Dallas’ best-protected resident, George W. Bush, can now sleep more soundly. President Barack Obama today signed into law a measure granting the 43rd president — and himself and future presidents– a lifetime of protection by the Secret Service.... and then yesterday he scolded us and said that you and yours will not be allowed to protect yourselves with guns as you have in the past... signing 23 Executive Orders making it more difficult.
Congress stripped that benefit in 1994, enacting a 10-year limit for presidents who take office after Jan. 1, 1997 — a list that so far includes only Bush and Obama.
Under the new law, children of presidents will be protected until they turn 16. Presidents and their spouses get lifetime protection.
