If you piss off the New Jersey RINOs…

…you’re definitely doing it right:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slammed the National Rifle Association’s latest ad in which they accuse President Barack Obama of hypocrisy for sending his children to a school where they are protected by armed guards. Christie called the ad “reprehensible” and said that the NRA should not be “dragging people’s children” into the gun control debate.

Reprehensible, eh? On the contrary. If anything, the NRA’s doing this country a huge favor. It is long past time we addressed the attitudes of those who would proclaim to be our betters in this respect. Since only God knows when, the people calling for more gun control in this country have been doing the opposite of practicing what they preached, from Sarah Brady buying a pistol for her son to Dianne Feinstein procuring a concealed carry permit in California. And now, we have the president of the United States, whose entire family is protected by a heavily-armed Secret Service detachment, once again jumping on the gun control bandwagon. I am reminded of what Dick Heller, the plaintiff in Heller v. D.C., said about D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty:

“He doesn’t walk on the street like an average citizen. Look at him; he travels with an army of police officers as bodyguards – to keep him safe. But he says that I don’t have the right to be a force of one to protect myself.”

You and I both know the president thinks the same, and so do all the other people with armed guards in Washington. It’s long past time to call these motherfuckers out, and if Chris Christie doesn’t agree, well then that just makes him part of the problem, doesn’t it?

    Obama danced in the blood of children only a few hours after the Newtown shooting. It was oblique, yes, but he spoke of gun control in his initial address (the only sour note in an otherwise superb speech). But of course, it’s okay to bring children into it for the right reasons.

    Now, if we’re discussing not practicing what you preach…Well, I’m going to admit I’ve got a big problem with a Quaker school having armed guards. That’s not exactly staying true to their religion, now is it?

    I kind of admire Richard Nixon for wanting to serve his country by joining the armed forces during World War II, despite being a Quaker himself. Of course, I have no idea how committed he actually was to the Quaker beliefs. Maybe he thought they were kind of whack at that point.
