If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Would you rely on his "Security Team" to protect your family!?

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
If I actually wanted to meet the celebrity then yes. The reality is that public figures do get shot and I understand the security protocol.

"Celebrities" think they are more important than they really are. I can't think of one I'd care to have visit.

No I would not disarm for anyone and "they" would not do a sweep of me house...
I don't get all giddy at the sight of a celebrity. I've been company to a few, they are just another person. I don't get the hype. But anyway, if I really wanted to talk with them and meeting them on their turf, then, yes, I'd play by their rules. If they are coming to my turf, that would indicate they want to meet me; so they play by my rules.
About the specific scenario presented here- I was listening to Rush yesterday when he was talking about this. I wouldn't have him to my home. Not because I dislike him or anything like that, I just don't make a habit having people to my house I don't know. I also understand the need for his security. He has had some really credible threats. If I were in his shoes, I'd be overly cautious too. I'd arrange for the meeting to take place somewhere else, like my workplace. I think that would be more fun anyway for the both of us.

In my home I'm the celebrity
But, I would disarm if they invited me to their home and requested it, and if I accepted the invitation.
It could be worse!
I would not disarm even for Mr. Limbaugh. My home my rules. In fact Mr. Limbaugh would be far safer in my home than driving down the road even with his "security staff".
celebrities don't impress me unless they are the kind wearing one of these
Those are my personal celebrities.
I would if it were Jennifer Garner and sex was involved. Besides that nope.
