A host for NRATV, the broadcasting arm of National Rifle Association, suggested on Friday that it was former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaTrump touts 'friendly' conversation with Biden Biden hosts potential VP pick Gretchen Whitmer on podcast History's lessons for Donald Trump MORE’s fault for the Parkland, Fla. school shooting, and called for him to apologize. 

NRATV host Grant Stinchfield said in a segment that Obama put students in danger through the school discipline guidelines he created as president.

“This liberal ‘no discipline for rule-breakers’ policy was a contributing factor that enabled the shooter to wreak the havoc that he did at Stoneman Douglas,” Stinchfield said.


Stinchfield said policies implemented by Obama and his Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan prevented Parkland faculty from intervening when suspected shooter and former student, Nikolas Cruz, exhibited behavioral issues.

He also called Obama a hypocrite for sending his daughters Sasha and Malia to a school with armed guards. 

“While you left educators defenseless,  while you pushed policies that barred violent students from being arrested, while you railed against the NRA, your daughters, yourself were all protected by armed guards,” Stinchfield said.

The NRA has worked for years to strengthen school security and add armed guards to schools, Stinchfield said. 

“Instead of doing the right thing, instead of working with us to install common-sense security in all of our schools, you continued to attack the NRA and its nearly 6 million members,” Stinchfield said, addressing Obama in the video.

“Here is the stone cold truth: If Barack Obama is writing anything that deals with the Parkland students, it should be an apology,” Stinchfield said.
