    Guns, CDC, Ebola and Obama. Secret Service missed man with gun in elevator with Obama

    A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16.
    [ ... ]
    When he didnít deny taking the photos, his CDC supervisor, who was on hand for the interview, said the behavior was highly irresponsible and told him to hand over his gun, shocking the Secret Service officers who were questioning the man.

    "Agents became alarmed during Obamaís trip to Atlanta after discovering that a private security contractor working for the CDC with a criminal record had a gun within arms-length of the president, but superiors told them not to file "any paperwork" or initiate an investigation, according to two sources familiar with the case. http://washingtonexaminer.com/no-paper-trail-in-cdc-gun-incident/article/2554209"

    My first thought is always some kind of consensual victimless crime until shown otherwise.

    UPDATE!! Guard fired after Obama visit: 'This is a nightmare' VIDEO

    Tate, 49, said the high point of his $42,000-a-year job was when he was assigned to accompany the president during his visit to the CDC's Atlanta headquarters seven weeks ago for a briefing on the Ebola epidemic, reports The New York Times.

    An investigation conducted shortly after the president's visit revealed that Tate was carrying a CDC-issued firearm, a violation of Secret Service protocols ó and a security lapse that the agency's director at the time, Julia Pierson, never mentioned to the White House, the paper adds.

    The Washington Post initially reported that Tate had been convicted of crimes, but subsequently corrected the claim.

    It seems that the CDC was following their protocols. Taking a photo of the POTUS, in public, is not a crime...or is it.
