Just stop inviting ANY speaker who doesn't trust us enough to be armed around him. Trump is in charge of the Executive Branch. He could overrule the SS if he wanted to.
Actually, no. Its that whole 'Seperation of Powers' bit, and Trump cannot overrule the legislative branch outside of the constitutionally written VETO process.

The laws regarding Secret Service Projection are legislatively proscribed. Trump cannot change that. And if Secret Service leadership allowed firearms, and Trump was assassinated, the leaders of the left in congress would have secret service's leadship's heads on platters during the congressional review. (Though, it would be a peculiar situation to have the left leadership in congress attacking the SS in regards to the assignation of Trump, wherein they would be inherently defending Trump's life and value as president.... That would be a circus).

The Secret Service has a job to do whether you like it or not. (Or do you think you should be permitted to the Oval Office to exercise your first amendment rights?).

Re: Mike Pence @ NRA Annual Meeting

I'll just leave this link here...

Some gun enthusiasts and apparent NRA members are displeased at the prohibition. At Texas CHL Forum, a message board for gun owners, commenters aired their frustrations.

“Obviously even republicans and so called leaders don’t trust the ‘good guys.’ I realize it’s the VP, but still makes our whole argument look foolish,” a commenter who self-identified as an NRA member said Thursday.

“You may disagree … but in my opinion the very people that claim to protect the 2A should never host an event that requires disarming the good guys. Sad. No excuses for this … it makes us look stupid,” the commenter said.

Another self-identified NRA member agreed, saying Friday: “Me personally, I won’t be listening to him speak. I won’t be going anywhere that I cant carry my firearm. It’s essentially the nations largest get together for gun owners and they won’t let law abiding legal gun owners carry guns because someone who’s supposedly pro 2A thinks its too ‘dangerous’? thats liberal logic right there.”
