One of the great ironies of the gun control debate is that many of the people calling for gun control have people with guns defending their security. James O’Keefe showed this with his latest video where his crew went to the houses of media personalities (and Eric Holder) posing as activists and asked them to put a “Home Proudly Gun Free Zone” sign in their yards. Some of them were reporters and editors from a paper that posted the names and addresses of gun owners.
Not only were there no takers for their signs, but two of the journalists had armed guards watching their homes. The police were actually called twice as well, which is amusing, since these people who don’t think you should be allowed to have guns were so worried about their own security that they called cops with guns to defend them from completely non-threatening “anti-gun activists.”
That brings us to the NRA’s latest ad.
They pointed out the hypocrisy of Obama having armed guards for his kids, but opposing them for your kids.
The same could be said of the Secret Service. If Barack Obama believes guns are the problem, why doesn’t he just make the White House a gun free zone? Of course, with the number of nuts who target the President, Obama would be signing his own death warrant if he did something so foolish. So instead, he has hundreds of highly trained, heavily armed Secret Service agents protecting him — and he should.
That being said, even though the President is at greater risk than the average person because of his job, that doesn’t mean other people aren’t at risk, too. If a nut, robber, rapist or murderer shows up at your house with a gun, you need a gun to protect yourself every bit as much as a Secret Service agent needs his gun to protect Barack Obama’s life.
If the gun control loons think it’s so important for America to be disarmed, why don’t they ask Obama to disarm the Secret Service? Because something might happen to Obama and he’s very important. But you and your family? You’re a bunch of peons. They don’t care if you’re robbed. They don’t care if your daughter is raped. They don’t care if your wife is murdered right in front of you. The rape, robbery and murder of your family is a price the gun control loons are willing to pay to make themselves feel better about themselves.
