NRA calls Obama elitist hypocrite as it goes on offensive in ad

The day before President Barack Obama unveiled proposals for gun-control to ensure the safety of children in the US the NRA has released an ad on its website calling the president an elitist hypocrite.  The ad focuses on the NRA proposal to put armed guards in US schools in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown Connecticut.

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam¬†told The Washington Post, “The president and his family enjoy 24-hour-security from law enforcement at taxpayer expense, and this ad asks very real questions: If it’s good enough for the president, why shouldn’t it be good enough for the rest for us?”
