Obama Likes Guns, Just Not For Citizens

Obama Likes Guns, Just Not For Citizens
FACEBOOK
This meme is making rounds on conservative websites.

In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama joked about the President’s second term being a ploy to continue having their children protected by having “men with guns around at all times.”

In the highly personal interview, the President and first lady discussed their marriage and family life in the White House. When the conversation moved on to the Obama’s two daughters, the President discussed his dismay at the prospect of 14-year-old Malia becoming interested in dating boys.

The President joked, “One of the main incentives of running was continued Secret Service protection so we can have men with guns around at all times.”

The interview was reportedly taped on Dec.11 and was originally scheduled to air on Dec. 14, the same day of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, before being postponed.

The President’s men with guns remark has drawn criticisms of hypocrisy from 2nd Amendment advocates, as Obama has renewed calls for harsher gun-control laws in the wake of the tragedy earlier in the month.

Though many liberals balked at suggestions from the National Rifle Association and some lawmakers about arming teachers or providing armed guards for schools throughout the Nation, no less than 11 armed guards protect Sidwell Friends— the Washington, D.C. area private school attended by the Obama daughters— according to news reports.
