Are the president's kids more important than yours?"

Tuesday night before the President Obama was scheduled to unveil a legislative package attacking gun violence, the National Rifle Association launched a video attacking Obama and citing his children.
The 35-second video criticizes Obama's opposition to more armed guards in schools, while noting that his daughters receive Secret Service protection.


"Are the president's kids more important than yours?" the narrator says. "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security."


http://www.digtriad.com/news/watercooler/article/263798/176/NRA-Ad-Uses-Presidents-Children

This is the best the NRA has? What group of knuckle-draggers can they hope to convince with this crap? I'm so old I can remember when the NRA was respectable. But this? How stupid do you have to be to qualify for ignorance these days? Sometimes we are just so lost to find any understanding of the citizens among us who can nod their heads to such putrid drivel. Anyone who can now join or belong to the NRA today should not be allowed to own so much as a squirt gun.

3. All kids need Creesie!!! (Man on Fire). We need to let ALL kids know they're

our first priority. Having something happen to our first family puts every child in this country in fear. It's a big fu(*ing neon sign that says, "we can get to them with all their protection, we can get to you". That is why every member of top gov families are "high value" targets. It's like most attacks of mass "disruption". It's about the chaos, uncertainty, and fear it puts in the minds of a country.

6. Children are safe nowhere in a country that "needs" armed guards in their schools. Those guards

aren't doing a damn thing about the CAUSES of the violence. They're AFTER the fact. "The horse is already out of the barn" and children are not safe anywhere, because people will kill for guns.

7. Actually the ad is completely wrong...

 

From the executive order:

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2013/01/16/here-are-the-23-executive-orders-on-gun-safety-signed-today-by-the-president/

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS (NASRO)

The National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) is dedicated to providing the highest quality of training to school-based law enforcement officers in order to promote safer schools and safer kids. NASRO, the world’s leader in school-based policing, is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1991 with a solid commitment to our nation’s youth. NASRO is an organization for school-based law enforcement officers, school administrators, and school security/safety professionals working as partners to protect students, school faculty and staff, and the schools they attend.

NASRO was founded on the “triad” concept of school-based policing which is the true and tested strength of the School Resource Officer (SRO) program. The triad concept divides the SRO’s responsibilities into three areas: Teacher, Counselor, and Law Enforcement Officer. By training law enforcement to educate, counsel, and protect our school communities, the men and women of NASRO continue to lead by example and promote a positive image of law enforcement to our Nation’s youth.

School- based policing is the fastest growing area of law enforcement. With over 3,000 NASRO members around the globe, NASRO takes great pride in being the first and most recognized organization for law enforcement officers assigned in our school communities. NASRO is available to assist communities and schools districts around the world that desire safe schools and effective community partnerships in developing the most effective program for their community.

SRO programs across the nation are founded as collaborative efforts by police agencies, law enforcement officers, educators, students, parents, and communities. The goal of NASRO and SRO programs is to provide safe learning environments in our nation’s schools, provide valuable resources to school staff, foster a positive relationship with our nation’s youth, and develop strategies to resolve problems affecting our youth with the goal of protecting every child so they can reach their fullest potential.

And this...

· School-based police officers (also known as school resources officers) are specially trained, carefully selected, full-time law enforcement officers who work in schools as their primary assignments.

· SROs are much more than armed guards. They develop relationships with students and staff and participate in the education of students.

· SROs enhance, rather than detract from the learning environment. Students learn that the officers are their friends, not someone to fear and they learn that the presence of an SRO does not indicate they are in danger.

· As of January 16, NASRO has received twice as many requests for training as it did in all of January, 2012. NASRO is increasing its training capacity to meet the increased demand.

I mean, even granting the blatant falsehood (Obama has in fact proposed increased security including guards on school campuses), it's a simple fact that the children of the President are people we all have an interest in protecting.

It's one sentence with out the word gun in it and 3 periods at the end.

I'm the polar opposite of a gun nut and abhor the use of guns. Period.

But somewhere in this thread I became one from out of nowhere.

Are we going on a witch hunt? Is that what we have become to each other in this group?

You made of point of inserting yourself in the conversation to insist it was obvious what he meant. So I drew the logical conclusion based on the subject to which he responded. Did you somehow think his comment was entirely unrelated to the OP?

You'll observe that two other participants in the subthread drew the same conclusion I did. I don't know what other meaning you think was so obvious that it escaped the rest of us.

Who interpreted his post in the same way. YOU felt compelled to insert yourself in the discussion. You choose not to explain your meaning. That is your choice. But you can hardly be surprised when people draw conclusions, when you yourself insist the meaning is obvious. Two other people interpreted your "obvious" meaning as I did.

I have no desire to be a psychologist, particularly for gunners.

Mainly because it is a stupid strawman. But like I said earlier, we have 20 dead kids in Newtown, 12 in Columbine, and we are debating whether the president's kids are more important than all other's kids. I can assure you there are 32 parents that are not debating the special circumstances the president's kids are in--or that they are in a setting which could result in a massive tragedy. But I digress as I do not want to debate whether his kids should be home-schooled.

17. well, duh... the key phrase being "to me"

The safety of Obama's kids is more important to *the country* than that of mine or yours. Obama's kids aren't better, cuter, more special, etc... but they are as important to him as mine are to me and yours are to you. The key difference between his and mine or his and yours--and I assume that you realize this and that you're not just a troll--is that our allegiance to our children doesn't make you and me subject to blackmail on a global scale.

I'm sure you're a devoted parent. So are most parents. Yay for you and yay for me.

The school that the President's girls go to doesn't have massive armed security. It does have security, but most, except for the Secret Service is unarmed. Anyone that expects the President's children or immediate family to go around with unarmed protection in this modern age is damned stupid.

Then they make the claim that these people's children are "protected by armed guards." LOL! The children of every last one of those people are ADULTS, and with the possible exception of Joe Biden's chldren, none of them have Secret Service protection. (Do the VP's adult kids get protection?) Hell, I don't believe any of them, outside of Biden, get protection, let alone their kids. The NRA is so full of shit.

You and others engaging me on this matter are playing into the NRA's straw man argument. No one questions the unique danger confronting president's kids. But how that is handled is entirely different than how we, average American's, need to protect our children. With that said, in the grand scheme of things, no one's kids are more important than another parent's kids. That is the answer to the question posited in this thread.

Therefore, if his kids can be kidnapped, hurt or killed as an attack against the president, then they should have protection, just like the Bush kids, Chelsea Clinton, etc etc etc.

The NRA are desperate.

47. Absolutely

I don't have kids.

The President's kids are, of course, high profile targets unlike the vast majority of other kids.

It's a stupid question of them to ask. The question should be is there a higher risk to their safety than your kids.

51. No. No ones children are more important than mine, and I will

put my life up to protect theirs and I will do ANYTHING to protect them.

59. perhaps the question should be changed

The President's children are more important to the President and his family than any others.

And all of us with kids hold our children closest.

Sadly the President's children have a much higher threat against them. It's the nature of the beast. Been that way for many years through many administrations of differing parties.

To make this comparison (that some animals are more equal than others!) is a false comparison that weakens any reasonable points later proffered.

Keep the kids out of debate if you NRA types only want to score cheap shot points...
