The NRA ad released on the gun rights group’s on Tuesday refers to President Barack Obama as an “elitist hypocrite.” The National Rifle Association (NRA) video points out that the president has an armed security detail to protect his children. The Second Amendment focused ad also voices a belief that common Americans deserve the save right as elected officials to protect their own loved ones.
President Obama is also criticized in the 35-second NRA ad for noting his skepticism that armed security is not the way to curb school violence. An excerpt from the NRA ad reads:
“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the idea of once again funding the cops in schools program has allegedly been discussed as a viable idea during the gun violence task force talks. The program which placed armed law enforcement officers in schools was initiated during the Bill Clinton administration.
National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre called for armed guards in schools to help thwart school violence after the Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Fox News notes. The ad has received some backlash from those on the left.
Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski on the MSNBC Morning Joe show shared their thoughts on “targeting” President Obama’s daughters in the gun rights ad. To be clear, the NRA ad did not say anything derogatory about the girls, it merely noted their protection detail as an example of the need for armed protection.
President Obama will release his gun control plan at a press conference on Wednesday. Concerns that Second Amendment protections will be infringed upon by an executive order have been voiced by many gun rights advocates. Where do you stand on the gun control issue and the NRA ad that calls President Obama and elitist hypocrite?
