The National Rifle Association’s gun advocacy campaign has reached a new low. The organization recently released a video lobbying for gun ownership by attacking the first family. After their press conference lobbying for armed guards at schools, they created a video criticizing President Barack Obama for protecting Sasha and Malia with gun-toting security.
The video states:
“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? 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.”
Sasha and Malia are not the first children of a President to have security yet they are the first to be criticized for it. Many believe the NRA is taking aim at the President’s family because he dismissed the group’s suggestion to put armed guards in schools.
The NRA’s failed attempt to glamorize the need for security for the first family has angered both critics and supporters alike.
