The Hypocrite in Chief: Obama opposes armed security in schools while his daughters enjoy a security details

New questions about Obama’s legitimate intentions when attacking the Second Amendment were raised Wednesday.
In a new video, the National Rifle Association (NRA) points out Obama’s hypocrisy as the man who bears the torch against the right of citizens to lawfully own firearms as established by the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights, while he approves of armed men guarding her daughters as they attend school.
The assumption that Obama’s daughters are entitled to having secret service or private security for their safety is not questioned, but the NRA puts in doubt Obama’s double standard when he does not propose regular folks around the country enjoy the same kind of security.
Some states in the Union have adopted initiatives to allow teachers and other workers to carry handguns in order to protect children, while most of the country’s schools remain gun-free zones. The ad put out by the NRA questions the audacity of Obama’s speech, which is loaded with anti-Second Amendment rhetoric, while his family is unquestionably protected 24 hours a day by tax payer funded security.
The question being asked by the NRA is why doesn’t Obama extend the same courtesy to the average American by removing all restrictions on the purchase of firearms when law abiding men and women seek to protect themselves and their families?
Perhaps the answer is that the latest wave of attacks against the Second Amendment, which has been orchestrated by politicians and the main stream media, has nothing to do with protecting children, but with disarming the population.
The NRA calls Obama an “elitist hypocrite” a label that could be stamped on anyone else who opposes a legitimate right of the American people. Any law abiding citizen who desires to himself or his family is entitled to buying firearms or any other weapon that can be used to do so.
Just as Obama and his family do it, Piers Morgan, Michael Bloomberg, John Stewart and other media personalities take advantage of having a security detail, usually composed by growth hormone-filled meat head goons, who accompany them at all times, but these hypocrites are the same people who are now trying to erode the Second Amendment they undoubtedly enjoy.
“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” asks the ad. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.” The compelling ad questions Obama’s opposition to schools having armed guards to prevent shootings of the type that occurred in Newton, Connecticut.
“I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools,” Obama said. “And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem,” said Obama in a recent interview. Right there is the hypocrisy.
