The NRA’s callous insensitivity is truly impressive. They remain unwavering in their fanaticism, despite gun massacres that have ravaged the nation. Earlier this week, a month after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, they released an adorable app, for ages four and up, which allows you to practice shooting at coffin-shaped targets with bulls eyes over the head and chest. Yay! But yesterday, with their latest move, the NRA has really outdone itself. And that’s saying a lot.
Yesterday’s video calls Obama an elitist hypocrite because of his stance on guns in schools. Remember, after the Newtown shooting, the NRA insisted that the solution to gun violence was more guns and an armed guard in every school. Obama, however, has said that he is “skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools.” So that is the “logical” “premise” behind the video in which the omniscient (just like the NRA!) narrator asks the viewer:
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. Protection for their kids, and gun-free zones for ours.
