You couldn’t have missed it if you watched the news today — the NRA’s latest volley in its fight against tighter gun control. This time they attacked the administration for providing armed protection for Sasha and Malia Obama at their school, and not doing the same for all the other school children in America. Stupid on its face and repugnant in its reference to the president’s children in its fight against gun control.
With this ad and controversial spokesmen like Wayne LaPierre and Alex Jones, the NRA is doing America a valuable service. They are clearly demonstrating the need for both stricter gun control laws and better mental health care and screening.
Meantime, NRA President David Keene is defending the ad and insists, “We were not talking about the president’s kids.” Could have fooled me.
Keep shooting yourself in the foot, NRA. You’re doing a great job so far.
