Chris Christie Slams ‘Reprehensible’ NRA For ‘Dragging People’s Children’ Into Gun Cont. Debate(Vid)

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.

RELATED: NRA: Those Who Think New Ad Is About First Daughters Are ‘Missing The Point Completely’

“I think any of us who are public figures, you see that kind of ad and you cringe,” Christie said on Thursday at a news conference in Trenton. “I’m a father who is a public figure, who has four children and my children had no choice realistically in what I decided to do with my career and what affect that has had on their lives.”

“Don’t be dragging people’s children into this,” he added. “It’s wrong and I think it demeans them and it makes them less of a valid trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate.”

“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” the narrator in the NRA advertisement asks. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools 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,” the controversial ad concludes.

I expect the GOP to put him up during the primaries, at least. They are so good at picking losers.

He is finished for 2016. There is nothing wrong with the NRA ad.

Who cares how “public officials” think anymore “WhaleBoy”.

We care about the U.S Constitution and Bill of Rights not what you “public officials” think of us.

Democrat and Republican voters better join hands on this gun issue.

Anyone who even hints at voting to take that freedom must be ejected from office next go round.

This comes across as though he is a snob; lives among the elites to where it seems he is wanting to get the media to like/accept him. Duh. We want a person that the media does not like. The ad was for all children to be safe, not just for the powerful. It is very offending to all gun owners to be treated like we are the problem. Christie, you could had been great if you were a real conservative.

Christie has lost his mind. I think it was the hurricane, he hasn't been right in the head since then, and have you noticed, he has put on a lot of weight?

Someone should ask him who those “little people” were who appeared with obumbler in his press announcement.

They should also ask him if he thinks obumbler told those “little people” that they would be taxed at a rate never before seen in America, and for the rest of their lives.

The Democrats! Just wait he will probably be switching parties in the future so he can run for President as a Democrat in 2016. I can’t believe there will many Republicans who would vote for him the way he’s going!

In the last several months I gave Gov. Christie the benefit of the doubt for some misguided actions and indelicate words.

What is wrong with him? Maybe his shorts are too tight. They’re cutting off circulation to his brain.

If this is the way Christie’s going to be, maybe he should change parties now.

I hope good conservatives realize what a party of pure idiotic imbeciles they are associating themselves with and get out of the STUPID PARTY!

Republicans are becoming evermore increasingly unwise in this age. It's like they don't even want me to vote for any of them any more, conservative or not!

I mean, I'm not going to vote for a conservative who remains in a party full of complete rino idiotic dumbasses, are you?

It would be nice if both Jeb and Christie would run and split the RINO vote. But they won’t because the GOPe will assure there is only one chosen establishment RINO candidate just like they did in 2012.

Obama is reprehensible for endangering our children with his attempted gun grab. For the NRA to point out his hypocrisy is a noble act. Anyone in doubt just has to look at how the far left media are reacting - they are in a panic that the NRA might frame the debate honestly.

Hey, attaboy for calling out obama for dragging other people's kids into this issue!

Oh. You weren't calling out obama? The NRA? Oh. I see, uh... Think about it, CC.
