LIAR, LIAR:  The National Rifle Association aired a “reprehensible” ad attacking President Obama’s daughters having Secret Service protection, while other students have no armed guards in their schools. The NRA also claimed in a television ad that the Sidwell Friends School that the Obama girls attend has 11 armed guards. Um, one problem — that’s not true. The school has a team of security officers who carry no firearms.

My Post colleague Glenn Kessler, who writes The Fact Checker column, wrote about the issue here and quoted Ellis Turner, associate head of Sidwell Friends, as saying: “Sidwell Friends security officers do not carry guns.” Parents and students say they have never seen one either.

The president’s children are protected by Secret Service agents, which is required by federal law, but that is not the same thing as armed school resource officers.

The Fact Checker, who hands out “Pinocchios” depending on how accurate — or inaccurate — a particular story is, gave the NRA and its ad the worst possible rating, four Pinocchios. Whereas three Pinocchios are given for “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions,” four Pinocchios are given for “whoppers.” Source

When will they learn that anything coming from Breitbart.com should be verified and cross-verified for accuracy. When will the NRA realize that the majority of Americans want something done about the accessibility of guns to just about anyone?

Here’s the NRA ad built on a LIE:

2 Year Old Brennan Nowell Dies After Accidentally Shooting Himself with Grandfather’s Gun

TRAGEDY:  Brennan Nowell, 2, WBIR reports, “Two year old Brennan Nowell died after he picked up the .40 caliber gun and shot himself in the side.”

We don’t know the brand of the gun, but as an example, the .40 caliber Smith and Wesson “was developed as a law enforcement cartridge designed to duplicate performance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s reduced-velocity 10mm Auto cartridge, which could be retrofitted into medium-frame (9mm size) automatic handguns.”

It is not clear whether charges will be filed or not. The gun reportedly belong to his grandfather. I guess the NRA wants to have a police officer standing by every home in the U.S.
