The National Rifle Association released a television advertisement Tuesday night that claims President Barack Obama is a hypocrite because his children are protected by the Secret Service.

“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” the narrator of the ad wonders. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. Protection for their kids, and gun-free zones for ours.”

In the wake of the tragic Newtown elementary school shooting, the NRA called for armed guards to be placed in every school to prevent mass shootings. Obama recently said he was “skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools.”

The ad was uploaded to YouTube and will also air on the hunting and shooting-oriented Sportsman Channel, according to CNN.

The ad was released less than 24 hours before Obama plans to announce his proposals to reduce gun violence.
