NRA Notes Obama’s ‘Elitist Hypocrisy’ On Guns

From an outraged Politico:


NRA knocks Obama on daughters’ security

By DONOVAN SLACK | January 15, 2013

The National Rifle Association released a video Tuesday calling President Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for being skeptical of armed guards in schools when his daughters receive armed Secret Service protection every day.

"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 schools? 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."

Really. Where is the fairness? ‘No social justice, no peace.’

In fact, we suspect that a lot of guns are bought by people who specifically want to protect their children from criminals. And yet children are only portrayed as the victims of guns. We never hear how they are protected by them.

The president’s children are typically off limits, even in the grittiest political warfare in Washington.

Really? It seems to us that Obama brings up his daughters quite often. Such as during the Saundra Fluke non-controversy. Heck, Obama even looked upon Trayvon Martin as an imaginary son in order to weigh in on that case.

Speaking of the Trayvon Martin case, lest we forget, the Obama administration and their allies, the news media, also tried to use that case to push for gun control, too. (Just as they do with any national story that involves a gun.)

And just think about it. Obama’s ‘child,’ Trayvon Martin, might be alive today if it weren’t for guns. Of course, the white Hispanic, George Zimmerman, might not be.

But Trayvon looked like Obama’s son, if he had a son. And we have our priorities.

But the NRA salvo is likely only the first of many in what promises to be one of the toughest battles Obama has committed to fighting in his second term…

Gosh, it’s so unfair when anyone fights back, isn’t it?

    I think nerobama spends far too much time behind the ivory walls. Let’s send him (sans armed security detail) to a solidly democrat area to meet “his people.” I’m thinking Detroit, Baltimore, or Oakland. He just might view personal defense in a slightly different manner afterwards.

  2. Anonymoose

    Here’s the list of the “executive orders” Obama is up to:

    1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

    Weren’t they already supposed to be doing that?

    2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

    In other words, try to circumvent the law again. The next big battle will be what decides a person as mentally incapable of using a gun.

    3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

    Again, wasn’t this already happening?

    4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

    Try to find out how to expand the list of prohibited people as much as possible. Play with the wording and see what they can get away with.

    5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

    ??? How many seized guns are being returned to criminals? Fishing to hope that maybe they got convicted of something in the meantime. And does “full” mean fingerprints or just the instant check?

    6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

    Probably how to run a check without having to record the private sale on their books and records. Then again maybe insisting it will–but it’s not required yet, is it?

    7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

    $$$$ for more Axelrod style brainwashing. Good luck with that.

    8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

    I guess new safes should be buried underground in concrete to make sure no one could ever break in. It’s not about “safety.”

    9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

    How many aren’t being traced?

    10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

    Hopefully a politically active police chief can use it for sound bites. After all it’s a report, not a tracking database.

    11. Nominate an ATF director.

    Can we say recess appointment?

    12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

    On the surface sounds good, but something a lot of institutions are already implementing.

    13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.

    On the surface sounds like what the NRA has asked for the whole time, but it’s too vague–could mean practically anything from actually enforcing existing laws (but why not immigration?) to a report-your-neighbor snitch line. Most likely some high profile cases and a few convictions to make an example, then slowly fading away.

    14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

    The CDC stopped because they were defunded from doing it in 1996–kind of the same trick the Democrats use. Yeah! More propaganda! But where will the money come from?

    15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.

    Probably something along the lines of a biometric safety that requires an iris scan, fingerprint scan, and DNA sample before the gun will fire, by which time you will have been robbed and/or killed. Sure to become a requirement on all new guns.

    16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

    Trying to get around the statute that prohibits them asking about guns–any way to wheedle more information.

    17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

    No…federal…..law…..because practically all threats are reported or restricted at the state level.

    18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

    Could a resource office be the same as an armed guard? Ya think?

    19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

    Again, on the surface sounds good, but a lot of places are already doing this, and essentially the same as #12, just more general.

    20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

    21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

    22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

    23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

    About the only things I would agree with–but what direction will it take? Making sure anyone with a gun is “outed” or just a backhand way to promote Obamacare and forget all about violence?

    What about the games and movies? Violent rap music? Drug culture?
