NRA head defends using Obama girls in pro-guns ad

Association

White House spokesman Jay Carney released a statement yesterday responding to the ad shortly before Obama outlined his new gun proposals.

"Most Americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight," Carney said in a statement emailed to reporters.

"But to go so far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly."
