Yes he is. That is actually the definition of Hypocrite, for he advocates gun control but has a security detail of 11 guards assigned to his children. I am not saying they should not have that detail, for they are in danger, but so is every other citizen of the USA. Everyone should be allowed the right to defend themselves against the government as well as their fellow citizens. Gun rights are our most important right, for they protect the others.

Side: Yes

He's the president. His kids are more important than yours. Sorry dude. That's what life dealt you. If anyone was mildly interested in kidnapping your kids it would be different, but they aren't.

And the government doesn't want to attack you. That is mildly psychotic narcissistic delusion.

The sentence "gun rights are our most important rights" will only ever be said by someone who has never actually had any rights taken from him. The right to vote, love, freedom of speech, clean water, clean air. If the government stopped filtering our water supply I suppose we could kill them till they started again.

Why are his kids more important? And don't say, "'cause he's the president."

And random peoples kids do get kidnapped all the time. Random kids get kidnapped and killed, kidnapped at raped, kidnapped and ransomed... you name it.

It's not Obama's place to say how "at risk" I should have to feel before I'm allowed to buy a gun for protection. If he's allowed gun protection, so should everyone else.

Is everyone else under constant threat of Kidnapping or assination?

Because the military goes up against other armies

No we don't we live in houses in America they live in military camps in hostile foreign countries.

they had guns that are not available to private citizens to protect the first family.

You live in a war zone? You're either from Somolia or you have paranoid delusions and are the exact type of person who shouldn't have any type of gun.

I'm all for sane individuals who've passed background checks owning regular guns that shoot like 8 bullets or whatever, it's the ones that think they need to shoot 30 bullets in a second and reload in another second who absolutely should not be allowed anything more dangerous than a helmet to protect their soft brain.

no gun shoots 30 rounds in a single secound especially not a simi-automatic oh sorry "assault weapon" and you do need to defend your self there could be a mugger, rapist, or murderer just around the next corner and you know what kind of gun he has? what ever kind he wants because criminals dont follow the law.

Side: Yes

Obama is a hypocrite. He kids are just as important as the average American's kids, after all we are "One Nation" as what the allegiance states. If he is protecting his kids now from potential dangers, how dangerous do you think it will get when he takes away gun rights? Unfortunately worse.

Side: Yes

Yes, and don't forget his drone program killing thousands of innocent women, and children at every strike. The government states "the drones make American safer", from what? Unarmed civilians? Assumed terrorist? Alleged combatants? U.S. authorities have largely kept quiet on the subject of drone strikes in Pakistan. Obama has already authorized 283 strikes in Pakistan, six times more than the number during President George W. Bush's eight years in office. As a result, the number of estimated deaths from the Obama administration's drone strikes is more than four times what it was during the Bush administration -- somewhere between 1,494 and 2,618.

Yes.

Firstly he's a hypocrite for not allowing Americans to practice their rights to protect themselves, yet using thousands of their tax money to protect his two daughters. It is extremely difficult for the average American to hire security of that level. That is why any law abiding citizen should be allowed to own a gun...

Secondly he's a hypocrite for having armed guards for his daughters when he's sending drones into foreign countries and killing hundreds of children

Thirdly he's a hypocrite because he sold thousands of weapons to Mexican cartels which are being used to slaughter hundreds of people including children on a regular basis through his 'Fast and Furious' program.

There's probably more... but the worst part is that America's president is War Criminal and most of them don't even know it.

Thats because his children are much more likely to get attacked then average american citizens.

Thats because average Americans don't need that much security.

Stats show owning a gun makes you more likely to get shot.

Yes. Well done.

Yes. Well done again.

Which stats are these? Quote your sources.

So you only disputed 1/3 (the lesser part) of my post and not even very well at that.

I'm going to have to spell it out to you as you're obviously unable to comprehend what I've said. Everybody should be allowed to have protection especially for their children. It is hypocritical for Obama to spend thousands on protecting his daughters and then spending thousands more brainwashing dumb retards (such as yourself :)..) to say they're not allowed to protect themselves and their children as is stated by the Second Amendment.

I hope you're able to understand that now. Don't forget the other two points.

He advocates for tightening gun control, not banning. In addition he can't be hypocrite as he himself doesn't own a gun. Thus he cannot be a hypocrite.

Side: No

His children need armed guards. They are potential targets to anyone with a grudge.

Side: No

His daughters are more likely targets due to their connection to him.

Side: No

The President's daughters must be protected. Too many nutcases in this world.

Side: No

Of course, he wants protection by gun, but he wants to strip it of private citizens.

Side: No
