Let’s stand and salute the NRA for their recent ad stating that Obama is an elitist hypocrite for allowing his own children– but not our children– to be protected by trained agents armed with guns.  Unlike the GOP, the NRA does not back down from anybody; they stand and deliver.  They are on the frontline, taking all of the heat, and I am proud to say that I am an NRA member.

Paul Waldman of The Prospect wrote a biting article that is full of mockery and derision in which he criticizes the NRA ad.

“NRA leadership is a bunch of crazy people,” he writes, adding sarcastically, “What an elitist, that Barack Obama, thinking he’s somehow above ordinary people…all of us should act as though we exist in the same security situation as the president of the United States.”

Don’t insult my intelligence, Paul. We are not asking the Secret Service to accompany us 24/7; however, adequate protection of all our children in no way reduces the protection of his children.  So what’s up with denying us what we need to assure the safety of our children?

Mr. Waldman goes on to needlessly disparage all of us who are every day, hard-working Americans by making light of “just the assistant regional manager of a widget company” who needlessly arms himself to the teeth in anticipation of a “terrorist commando strike force.”
