Fox News host Chris Wallace called out National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre on Sunday for arguing that President Obama’s children live under the same threats to their security as all other school children.  

“That’s ridiculous and you know it, sir,” Wallace said to LaPierre.

Wallace asked his guest on “Fox News Sunday” if he regretted airing a controversial TV ad in which the NRA went after President Obama for providing armed security to his daughters but not supporting their proposal to put armed guards in all schools.

“They also face a threat that most children do not face,” Wallace said of Obama’s daughters. 

“Tell that to the people in Newtown,” LaPierre responded. 

“You really think that the president’s children are the same kind of target as every other school child in America?” Wallace said. “That’s ridiculous and you know it, sir.”
