The National Rifle Association issued a statement saying that their ad calling President Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for sending his daughters to school with Secret Service protection and being skeptical of putting armed guards in schools across the U.S. isn’t about his daughters. Um, really?
NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said in a statement to NBC News:
“Whoever thinks the ad is about President Obama’s daughters are missing the point completely or they’re trying to change the subject,” Arulanandam said in a statement Wednesday. “This ad is about keeping our children safe. And the President said he was skeptical about the NRA proposal to put policemen in all schools in this country. Yet he and his family are beneficiaries of multiple law enforcement officers surrounding them 24 hours a day.””That’s the real issue,” he continued. “Anything else is an attempted calculated distraction.”
