Note that the safety/decocker is engaged, which is odd if Killion intends to protect anyone.

IMI Uzi

USSS Agents and various assassins use the Uzi. The U.S. Secret Service actually did have the Uzi in their arsenal in the 1980's and many agents used them (the most notable example being the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981 when Special Agent Bob Wanko pulled an Uzi out of a briefcase to cover the President).

An Uzi, much like those that would have been in the arsenals of Secret Service offices in 1987, when this film was made.
