(RNN) - The National Rifle Association released a new commercial calling President Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for being resistant in the placement of armed guards in schools when his daughters have U.S. Secret Service protection at theirs.

"Are the president's kids more important than yours?" a narrator asks. "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? 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 35-second ad, released Tuesday night, is being aired on the Sportsman Channel and is also posted on the NRA's "Stand and Fight" website.

"Stand and fight sums up what Americans need to do to preserve our Second Amendment freedom," NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told CNN.

According to CNN, The NRA is not ruling out expanding to air the commercial elsewhere.

The president unveiled his new gun control proposals Wednesday.

He is calling to ban assault weapons, ban high-capacity magazines, background checks to be done on all buyers, more funds for mental health care and more support for school security.

Obama issued a total of 23 executive actions to prevent gun violence that do not require congressional approval.

The move comes after the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut that killed 20 children and six teachers.
