Your missing the point. His men have access to these firearms to protect him. What makes him so much more important to have that level of protection. Yet we can't defend ourselves with the same firearms? See the hypocrisy?
It would only be hypocritical if he insisted that his protection can still use those firearms but others can't. Using what is available currently is not wrong.
You very well know that even after those firearms are not available to citizens that they will still have them for their men. Right?
How? His protection are private citizens.
Because of their occupation for duty use they will have access to such weapons. Just like police have access to weapons citizens can't.
That is not how that works. Police gets away with it because they are government employees and the government gives them special privileges. People you hire for your own protection do not get these special privileges and are restricted to the same things normal citizens are. If they can get assault rifles then so can you. Of course there might be a process to it but thats something they also went through.
The second Amendment isn't just for national security. It's a check against our government.
The second amendment was written to appease anti-federalists. There really was not much thought into its purpose aside from that
