White House calls NRA video repugnant, cowardly
Yahoo News ^ | 16 Jan 2013

Posted on 01/16/2013 10:06:02 AM PST by mandaladon

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says a National Rifle Association video referencing President Barack Obama's daughters is "repugnant and cowardly."

Obama spokesman Jay Carney says most Americans agree that a president's children should not be used as "pawns in a political fight." Carney was referring to an online video from the pro-gun lobby. The video calls Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for having armed Secret Service agents protect his daughters at school while not committing to installing armed guards in all schools.

The NRA released the video ahead of Obama's announcement Wednesday of proposals for curbing the nation's gun violence. The president is calling on Congress to enact universal background checks and ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines — all measures the NRA opposes.

The gun lobby has instead called for armed guards in schools.

Obama spokesman Jay Carney says most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as “pawns in a political fight.”

Just other people’s but only when its for gun control.

How these lying hypocrits can keep from laughing when the drones in the media totally accept this kind of drivel is beyond me.

Obama’s children deserve to be protected by armed guards , but the Sandy Hook kids do not deserve such protection?

Elitest fascists in the White House? You bet.

I hope the NRA developes a national program for the training and provision of armed gurads for schools across America.

But....but....but didn’t Obama and Biden surround themselves with child pawns before announcing the 23 presidential executive orders on gun control?

Most Americans do not agree with Carney at all. Not in the least.

But failed to answer why his children can be protected with armed security while ours cannot.

The only coward here is the Kenyan. He and his children are surrounded by Secret Service - their magazines carry more than 6 rounds I would bet - while the rest of us aren’t worth even protecting ourselves in his ego mind.

Obama and his ilk are the ones who are repugnant and cowardly. He is not only the Hypocrite-in-Chief, he doesn’t have the spine to even try to justify why his kids get taxpayer-funded guards and ours are somehow not worthy.

Please do. You will be able to vote in the elections for NRA officers, so you can help us elect officers with brass.

Also join the Second Amendment Foundation, they work in the courts.

And join your local Gun Owners association. They are usually more outspoken than the NRA.

What is totally repugnant is the Obamanist's willingness to restrict the right of better rooted Americans to protect their own children. No one wants to deny him the right to protect his daughters. It is the vicious double standard that is offensive--all the more so, coming from one who spent his formative years in a foreign land, with very different values than those once vouchsafed to Americans, by far better men than Obama.

The idea of limiting the means of self-defense, and the defense of basic liberties, is mean-spirited and contemptible.

For just how these issues should be viewed both historically & pragmatically: Right & Duty To Keep & Bear Arms.

George Washington wanted American households equipped with military grade small arms. Americans need to choose between George Washington's way & Obama's.

Even if there were no secret service protection for his daughters the school they attend still has armed security guards.

Also it’s obama’s own fault for punishing himself with children.

The NRA was not using Obama’s kids as pawns as this lying jackass suggests, but rather exposing the fact that we are forced to pay for the armed guards in school for Obama’s kids that Obama wants to deny to our own children. A situation that we are not going to sit still for.

Yup, a bully will back down when faced with a dauntless person.

Same here, instead of making laws by EO, the bully in question published some mealymouthed blather about existing laws.

Good job indeed, NRA!

President's children as pawns in a political fight = bad.
Your children as pawns in a political fight = good

Is that clear now?
