Buzzfeed, The Washington Post and several other outlets reported that the NRA posted a despicable ad denouncing President Obama as a hypocrite for having Secret Service agents assigned to his children.
The transcript of the ad is below.
“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” a narrator asks. “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 ad had images of school, schoolchildren and armed officers.
I saw the ad a short while ago and in the time it took to search for a link, the ad had been pulled. One can only imagine why. If I do get a link to a video capture, I will include it.
Update: Now with video. Apparently the NRA did not pull the ad. Their website went down. As of this update, the ad remains.
