Christie Slams NRA Over ‘Reprehensible’ Obama Girls Clip

Governor Chris Christie, the New Jersey Republican dubbed “The Boss” by Time magazine, took aim at the National Rifle Association for a video featuring President Barack Obama’s children, who have armed guards.

“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” a narrator asks in the 35-second clip posted on the NRA’s website Jan. 15. It calls Obama a hypocrite because his two daughters have security officers while he was skeptical of the value of armed guards in the nation’s schools as he pitched gun controls.
