sorry, not buying it.

It doesn't really matter if you buy it. I guarantee their thinking is much more along the lines of what I've stated than your "Oh it's been a week, I'm safe now."

they haven‘t „just“ (as in „recently“) been attacked, it was a week ago. Security measures are in place.
They have the power to remove the guy threatening them, in fact he already is on the path out, just needs a push to stay out.
It’s not rocket science, it’s in their constitution.

Voting to impeach him has not removed him from office, in case you hadn't noticed.

They are constantly waving the constitution around like holy scripture...

oh wait, I get it: they don’t really know what is written in their holy scripture either
so...
it’s just logical they are not aware that they have the power to disarm the toddler who got hold of their gun.

They aren't afraid of Trump, they're afraid of his base. You know, the people who built a gallows outside and ran through the halls screaming "Where's Mike Pence?" Again, not defending anyone or calling anyone a hero, but if that doesn't make any sense to you then there's literally nothing anyone can say.
