NEW: NRA Ad Takes Aim At Obama’s Kids
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
The National Rifle Association is receiving harsh criticism for its use of President Obama's daughters in a new ad supporting the lobbying group's proposal of placing armed guards in schools.
The ad's narrator questions why the President is skeptical of putting armed guards in public schools when his own children are protected by such security measures at their school.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called the ad "repugnant and cowardly" in a statement.
The House Majority PAC, a political action committee dedicated to winning back a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, launched an online petition demanding that the NRA pull the ad down.
