The National Rifle Association released a video yesterday that criticizes President Barack Obama for his view on gun-control and underhandedly throws a jab at the President's daughters.
The video, which is part of the NRA's new "Stand and Fight" campaign, is a response to Obama's comments about guns in schools:
"I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools, and I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem," Obama said. "And, look, here's the bottom line. We're not going to get this done unless the American people decide it's important."
The NRA responded, calling Obama an elitist hypocrite for allowing the Secret Service to protect his daughters:
"Are the president's kids more important than yours?" the ad asks. "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school?"
The ad continues: "Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security."
The White House responded to the video, condemning the ad as “repugnant and cowardly.”
Is Obama being a hypocrite, or are his circumstances different because he's the president and his children have to be protected? Check out the video to see the NRA's take.
