NRA Lobbyist Admits Ad Referencing Obama’s Daughters Was ‘Ill-Advised’

Source: TPM


ERIC LACH 2:19 PM EST, FRIDAY JANUARY 25, 2013

In an interview with Reuters, the head of the federal affairs division at the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action acknowledged that a controversial ad released by the NRA earlier this month -- which referenced President Obama's daughters -- was "ill-advised."

"I don't think it was particularly helpful, that ad," Jim Baker said. "I thought it ill-advised."

From Reuters:

"I think the ad could have made a good point, if it talked about the need for increased school security, without making the point using the president's children," he said. The NRA has advocated putting armed guards in schools

Baker was the NRA's representative at a meeting with Vice President Joseph Biden on January 10 to discuss the administration's plans to reduce gun violence in the wake of the school shooting.

He said he was not involved in creating the ad, and once it appeared, he had let others at the NRA know what he thought. "I got to say my piece," he said. Baker gave no details of the their response to him, but said, "Believe it or not, there are occasionally differences of opinion in this building."

Not to make a play on words, but, in fact, toooo make a play on words.......

Everything the NRA has said and done since the mass shooting in Connecticut has "backfired" on them. Their mis-aimed bullets have come around to hit them in the butt. The NRA's motto should be....

Those stupd NRA fools. Don't they know that the 2nd Amendment is sooooo 1776?

They need to come into the modern era where Barack Hussein Obama is going to lead everyone to the new world where the only ones with guns are the government agents. That is the way it is supposed to be.

Gee, wasn't it a couple of months ago that Obama was re-elected to another 4 years by the American voter and then just a few weeks ago reaffirmed by the Electoral College. Looks like your ooold world is being replaced by the new world and as it should. We don't live in the past, we live for the future. That is what makes this country such a great place. And that is exactly why the Republican Party and the ultra right conservative movement is sinking faster than the Titanic did. They live in the past. When the 2nd Amendment was written, this was a new country coming out of the war of independence. What are the first words of that amendment?
" A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,". That was the primary reason for that amendment.

Why in the world any sane, intelligent person needs to have an AK-47 or weapons of that ilk in their home is beyond rational thinking. The dead children in Connecticut might be alive today if that stupid mother didn't have those type of guns in her home with easy access to her son.

And just for clarification, I am in my 70's and I LIVE FOR THE FUTURE.

You are a fool. We are a nation of laws, not of mob rule. Laws are based on our Constitution, and give the citizens of the United States freedom from tyranical rule which are not available anywhere else on this planet. That is until Barry deicded that he did not need to live by the rule of law and could make up his own rules that his subjects would follow. Adolph Obama will be the reason we become a 3rd world nation.

In your recitation of the 2nd Amendment, you conveniently left off the phrase "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
