The NRA is really taking a stance on gun control in America and in doing so they are pulling two young girls into the ruckus, which really isn't fair to them.
Apparently, the National Rifle Association will try anything to get their message out and that includes using President Obama's two daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama.
In a new ad the organization says :
"Are the president's kids more important than yours? 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."
Obviously, there are some major differences between the President's kids and the average American child. Sasha and Malia are more of a target because they are in the public eye, thus the armed guards. They are the President's kids for goodness sake, it's ridiculous to even bring them into the controversy over gun control!
Overall the ad just makes the NRA look stupid and though it's understandable that they are trying to make a point in the midst of the anti-gun backlash recently, they should try to make their point another way.
