NRA: The President Is An ‘Elitist Hypocrite’
The President is criticized for being skeptical of armed guards in schools.
Prior to President Obama announcing his steps to reducing gun violence, the National Rifle Association (NRA) released a video calling the President an “elitist hypocrite” and criticizing him for using tax dollars to protect his own school-aged children. “Are the President’s kids more important than yours?” the video begins, referencing the NRA’s proposal to put armed guards in school.
White House spokesman Jay Carney called “Stand and Fight” ad “repugnant and cowardly.” He said, “Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight.” The President previously expressed skepticism about placing more guns in schools in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” (Washington Post)
