President Barack Obama, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and many Hollywood stars are being hypocritical in calling for stricter gun control while they are protected with armed bodyguards, says Sen. Rand Paul.

“I don’t begrudge any famous person like Mayor Bloomberg or the president or the president’s family for having protection,” Paul told Fox News on Thursday.

Gun Control: Was Harry Reid right to Reject It?

“I think they all should,” the Republican senator from Kentucky said. “There are enough crazy people out there who would attack on the right or the left. But I think when you are being protected by people who have weapons, by responsible people, I can’t see why you would be opposed to that for other people.”

As for Hollywood, “Many rich Hollywood celebrities have armed guards with them at all times,” Paul points outs.

“And many regular people who live in a poor neighborhood, who have a business in a poor neighborhood and a neighborhood that may have higher crime, those people have to suffer the vicissitudes of violent crime without protection sometimes, because of gun control laws.”

Paul’s conclusion: “Yes, I think there is a certain amount of hypocrisy.”
