Although he is affiliated with a nationwide network of mayors dedicated to implementing strict gun control measures on law-abiding citizens, recent reports indicate Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is not opposed to firearms when used to protect him and his family.
Earlier this month, Emanuel’s son, Zach, was mugged just outside of the prominent Democrat’s home. In response, reports indicate Chicago police were on the scene in a fraction of the time such calls generally take to complete. Even on a typical day, documents show multiple officers are assigned to guard Emanuel’s home around the clock.
A local Fox affiliate noticed that even this level of armed protection is apparently not sufficient for Barack Obama’s former chief of staff. WFLD captured a sign posted in front of the residence after the recent attack warning that the premises are off-limits and being protected by the U.S. Secret Service.

As The Daily Caller noted, mayors are not among the public figures typically afforded such protection. According to the department’s website, Secret Service agents are only authorized by law to protect a limited range of individuals without an executive order from the president.
