NRA Ad About Obama's Daughters

Obama and Biden Unveil Sweeping Gun Control Plan as NRA Goes After President's Daughters

President Obama and Vice President Biden addressed the nation today, sharing their plans to curb gun violence in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. The Obama administration's agenda includes a proposed ban on assault weapons, universal background checks, limits on high-capacity magazines, and more. It's going to be a tough political road for Obama and his backers, as gun-rights supporters in Congress will likely put up a fight. But today the NRA ironically helped get momentum on the president's side when it released an outrage-inducing political ad. The NRA tried to paint the president as a hypocrite by invoking efforts to keep his daughters safe.

The ad asked, "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 schools?" You can watch the ad, which the White House called "repugnant" and "cowardly," above. And weigh in: do you think Obama will succeed in passing new gun laws?

Wow. This ad is really out there! By this logic, all presidents are hypocrites because they get to live in the White House and the rest of us don't! It would be comical if it weren't so offensive.
