NRA Video Defends Plan For Armed Guards In Schools
Pema Levy –
The National Rifle Association defends its plan to put armed guards in every school in a new, four-minute video released Wednesday. The video argues that while President Obama and media elites panned the idea, that the American people support it.
The video reiterates, though in less harsh terms, the idea put forward in a controversial TV ad, that Obama allows guns in his daughters' school but opposes the same protection for other people's children.
"Barack Obama won't have two sets of rules -- armed guards for his rich friends and their elite schools, restrictions and gun-free zones for ours," a narrator says in the video.
