An ad by the National Rifle Association is bringing President Obama’s kids into the gun debate. Beginning a sharp pushback to any new gun regulations, the NRA has posted a Web video that labels President Barack Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for allowing his daughters to be protected by armed Secret Service agents while not embracing armed guards for schools.
A narrator asks in the video: "Are the president's kids more important than yours?"
President Obama unveiled his proposals for gun-control today. Some of the things he’s calling for include: background checks on all gun sales, a limit on the size of ammunition magazines and the reinstatement of a ban on assault weapons.
The White House is calling the ad repugnant and slamming the NRA for dragging Obama’s family into the gun debate.
Watch the ad and give us your thoughts.
