Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) slammed the NRA as “reprehensible” for “dragging people’s children” into gun debate.
This comes after the left mocked the NRA for proposing armed security at schools while at the same time sending their children to schools with armed guards. The NRA pointed this out in an ad. And, now Christie is attacking the NRA not the hypocrites on the left.
“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.”
