Barack Obama pushed for more gun control and more gun free zones. He wanted every school in America to be a gun free zone and he adamantly opposed the idea if training and arming teachers so that they can instantly defend your kids.
That was easy for him to say, since the school that his girls attended had a minimum of 10-armed security guards on campus at all times. It was okay for his kids to be protected by armed security, but he always opposed to allow your kids to have the same protection.
Like so many other anti-gun Democrats, Obama said that only trained professionals such as police be allowed to have firearms on school grounds but very few schools can afford to pay for full-time armed security. Additionally, how does one armed security guard effectively protect a school that multiple separated building?
What happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was a prime example. There was an armed professional on campus and when he heard about the shootings, he took up a position outside the building but did not enter or make any attempt to stop the shooting which was still ongoing at the time. In fact, video showed that there were 4 armed professionals at the school before the shooting ended, all out side the buildings, doing nothing to stop the shooting or save lives.
Actress Alyssa Milano recently displayed the same type of anti-gun hypocrisy displayed by Obama.
This past weekend, the NRA held their annual convention in Dallas where they announced that Oliver North will be taking over as the new President of the NRA. Numerous anti-gun activits also descended on Dallas where they protested against the NRA.
One of those protesters was Milano, who has been fairly outspoken in support of gun control. However, when she showed up, she was accompanied by an entourage of security guards and guess what, yep, they were armed.
According to a report about the incident:
“Actress Alyssa Milano attended an anti-NRA protest in downtown Dallas today — and she did it surrounded by armed guards.”
“In video captured by Ben Howe, NRA member Will Haraway asked Milano’s security if he was armed and the man clearly wasn’t amused by the question.”
“‘I’m going to ask you to leave,’ the guard said repeatedly, physically backing Haraway up by getting in his face.”
“‘How far do I have to go?’ Haraway asked.”
“‘I’m going to need you on the sidewalk,’ the agent responded.”
“‘Hypocrite! Alyssa you’re a hypocrite! You have armed security here!’ an observer yelled.”
Hypocrite is right. Milano, Obama and many other anti-gun activists are hypocrites. They claim to be against guns while at the same time they enjoy the privilege of being protected by armed security. Obama had his kids protected at school by armed security while wanting to deny you of the same privilege.
Such hypocrites see no problem with their hypocrisy, such as Milano’s friends who enjoyed being protected by armed security guards as they stood and protested against guns. They don’t mind having an armed military to protect the country and they don’t mind having armed police to protect them but they seem to have a big problem with allowing others to be able to defend themselves.
