The sedia gestatoria would protect the Pope
The article was written by a security expert, so one should assume he knows his business.
The issue of gun fire is irrelevant because one can more easily be shot when standing unmoved at the altar or pulpit.
One wouldn't aim when on the sedia, moving targets are not preferred.
The point of this article is that the Holy Father can circumvent modernist complaints by bringing back the sedia under the guise of security.
I would like to see it returned mostly because of the dignity it displays and because it is a tradition that goes back to ancient Egypt, so one of the most venerable traditions the Church adopted from the ancient world, worth preserving for civilization to maintain a sense of continuity.
