Gun control hypocrite Barack Obama chooses guns for himself and his family, but opposes them for everyone else
On January 10, 2013, President Obama signed a bill that provides armed guards to himself and his wife for the rest of the lives. He did this because he understands that armed guards make people safer. I think that what he did was a good thing. I agree with what he did on this.
Obama chooses to send his own children to the private Sidwell Friends school, which employs 11 armed guards. These aren’t Secret Service agents. Instead, these armed guards have been employed by the school since long before Obama was elected President. Obama chose this particular school for his children because he knows that these armed guards will make his children safer. And again, I think that what he did was a good thing, and I agree with him. (Update: the Washington Post has reported that Sidwell Friends does NOT employ any armed guards.)
What I don’t like about Obama when it comes to the gun issue is his hypocrisy.
In 2004, when Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.
So, there you have it. Barack Obama favors guns to protect himself and his family, but opposes them for everyone else.
