Here’s hoping that the gun violence prevention proposals coming out of Vice President Joe Biden’s task force are substantial. The American people deserve serious solutions on the issue of gun safety and it’s becoming more and more clear that now is the time to do it. Since the NRA has completely lost their minds.
In the new ad, the NRA complains about the president’s daughters school having armed guards, “Are the president’s kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school?” the NRA ad’s narration reads. “Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.”
Not only is the video offensive, it ignores the fact that young children going to school with armed guards isn’t necessarily awesome. Are we really at a point where sending your kids into a pseudo-war zone is the only available option? Not taking away easy access to Bushmasters? The NRA is protecting their profits and attacking the Obama girls as a distraction from their true motives.
