Town hall's Rachel Marsden said the LaPierre's suggestion of placing armed police in the schools was at best Hollywood like and insane. Ms. Marsden i say to you that to allow kindergartners to be massacred is insane. However what worries me is you seem to think just the opposite and apparently advocate this kind of action over protect of our Nations future. Sounds to me as if you are the insane one. i suggest you read the book of 1 corinithian's, the whole chapter. It deals with what and where a females place in this world is!
Wayne respectfully presented his case, David Gregory disrespectfully tried to bait and mock Wayne. There can be no doubt as to Mr. Gregory's opinions just as there can be no doubt as to the opinions of the media as a whole. Had Mr. Greogory been interviewing either Obama or Biden he would've been deferential and not adversarial. Wayne is 100% correct about guarding the public schools. Mr. Greogory's kids attend a private school that has guards and Mr. Obamas kids enjoy the security provided by the Secret Service; who guards your kids?
Bravo presentation by LaPierre. Commonsense solutions vs liberal big gov't ideology. Liberalism really is a "mental illness".
"David Gregory mocked the NRA's Wayne LaPierre for proposing that armed guards be at every school in America. But the NBC host seems to have no problem with armed guards protecting his kids everyday where they attend school in Washington, D.C."
Gregory, you bag of sh*t on two legs, you double faced liar, brainless hypocrite.
The NRA guy should have been more prepared. Gregory kids go to an armed school and this guy should have called him out and asked: Why is it good enough for your kids to go to an school that is protected with armed guards" and not good enough for the general public? Also, does your body guard carry firearms ? He was not prepared and could have made him very unconfortable with a few basic replys. Get on offense and quit letting these little LIBS back you in a corner. Their attitude is they are elite and conservatives let them get away with that BS, get prepared !!!
Looks like Mr. Gregory is looking at possible jail time - of course, only if Mr. Lapierre is incorrect concerning the enforcement of current gun laws.
I sure hope the David Goebbels and the rest of the Goebbels media are at ground zero of the next attack. They should suffer the consequences of pushing a marxist on this country.
I give LaPierre credit for going on Gregory's show. These Sunday shows are becoming Liberal 101. EVen Fox Sunday can't be trusted anymore.
I hate what the gun-grabbers are doing. I think it's sick.
Maybe the NRA should replace it's leadership though? LaPierre praised Harry Reid as a friend to gun rights two years ago. Talk about bad judgement. And he's undermined himself I hear by deflecting to violent movies when the truth is people are accountable for their own actions, a crazy person is a crazy person, and we should blame them for their own actions instead of some object like the left does.
As Malkin's said, the nanny state never fixes problems.
This show needs to be renamed, "Meet the Obama Press Corps." I think our side needs to get "ghetto" on these liberal biased pigs. Taking the high road is not working.
ask mr gregory where his kids go to school?? same place as obamer's and they have a security of 11 besides all the extra for obamaer's kids............hypocrite gregory
demand he answer why his children attend a school with armed guards??????????????????
Gregory is nothing more than another Odumbo propagandist. This tragedy is being used by this travesty of an administration to push an agenda that failed when Fast and Furious was discovered. Mr. Imposter, the law-abiding citizens of this nation handle guns with more responsibility than you do, perhaps it is you who needs the gun-free zone? You could start with your Secret Service agents...let them guard you with sling shots and get back to us with how it goes!
Whenever liberals pooh pooh armed guards, ask them, "Was President Clinton wrong then when he asked for 60 million to put police in schools in 2000?" http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/12/21/Flashback-Clinton-Cops-in-Schools
Time to rethink the treatment and institutionalizing of mentally ill people in this country.
Bet Gregory works in a building secured with armed gusrds.
Don't you just love Gregory's unwillingness to consider anything beside more gun control on law abiding citizens while he disses La Pierre for not being willing to accept more gun control for the law abiding? The democrat party is determined to run your life however they see fit. They think the average person is beneath them and underserving of freedom. You let these people have anything at all and that just encourages them to take more. These are terribly misguided people at best.
Purely coincidental that Zero and his gun grabbing buddies push for more gun control after the coincidental wave of gun violence we have seen popularized through the WH propaganda arm (the irrelevant leftist media outlets). That's what Zero and the gun grabbers have wanted all along and now with the deaths of children caused "solely" by guns and nothing but guns, they have got a large segment of the American population and so-called pro-Second Amendment politicians (Joe Manchin of West Virginia for one) emotionally invested in some form of gun control now. Oh excuse me, the incident in Wyoming did not feature firearms but bow and arrow was the weaponry of choice. Excuse me again, how many school-age children have been killed in the so-called gun controlled city of Chicago, the hometown of Zero? - http://tv.msnbc.com/2012/12/20/in-newtowns-shadow-chicagos-bleak-gun-toll-goes-on/ - Yet the deaths of children in Chicago didn't really seem to tug at Zero's heartstrings as much as the incident at Sandy Hook did. Perhaps Zero was too busy running for re-election. Oh excuse me yet again, I shouldn't state the violence was caused by nothing but guns. I guess mental illness had something to do with it too. We'll have to pass legislation requiring psychological evaluations for all who wish to purchase firearms from now on. Yeah, that will work well.
PUT THE PERP IN JAIL!!!
"This morning on “Meet the Press”, David Gregory decided to wave around a 30-round AR-15 magazine."
"No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
THEY take away people's guns
And then THEY take away people.
I got this statement from www.SaveMyLifeDrRima.com.
Gregory really thinks He's clever .....which unto itself is a joke when listening to his debate process....He' not listening and obviously doesn't understand the issue.
David Gregory on Meet the Depressed is a Huge Liberal. Why in the world did the Lapierre go on this show.
I think we need to reform the republican party and we my start with the ORANGE RINO John Boehner. Read this awesome article it's a must. I found this on this new Conservative News Blog
Romney didn't want to run for president, son says
Gregory is nothing but a mouthpiece for the Pravda propaganda spewing MSM seeking to disarm us. Any idiot with two braincells has the capacity to figure out that you can ban all the guns you want and it won't prevent the criminals from obtaining even one firearm or one magazine. They will always have all the weapons and ammunition they need.
"Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two parties: 1) Those who fear and distrust the people 2) Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe depository of the public interest."
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."
Patrick Henry, during Virginia's ratification convention (1788).
Somebody posted this here the other day. I'm sorry I don't remember who, but you deserve credit. Schools are fireproof, the chance of a death from fire is almost zero between construction materials and drills and training. I'll bet you can go can go into 1000 different schools and ask the teachers and students what they are supposed in a fire and they will give you a complete rundown on exactly what they are supposed to do. But if you ask those same people what they are supposed to do they will not have any training. There is is the problem, the schools are run by government and the unions with an agenda to eliminate guns. They appear to welcome shootings and do absolutely nothing to educate staff and students or protect them.
Just as Fast and Furious was created to pile up dead bodies to affect public sympathy so are our schools used in the same way. Drive fear of guns into citizens so they think that guns are the problems, not even questioning that more people are murdered by other means than guns, thereby surrendering their rights to a more oppressive government.
Personally I prefer the teachers and or staff carrying concealed rather than armed guards for two reasons.
First. Teachers are already paid to be there so there is no additional funding needed other than getting them certified.
Second. Assailants wouldn't know who was armed. No uniforms or persons always located at certain positions in schools such as entrance ways than might be circumvented by would be assailants.
Just my opinion but then I'm old school and old military. We were taught not to do the obvious and to camouflage.
If you think teachers will conceal and carry without the doubling or tripling of their pay, you are not paying attention. The students will quickly know which teacher is armed. It only takes two bullies to tackle a young teacher, take her gun and hold her at gunpoint while other students do unseemly illegal acts. Arming teachers is nonsense and a threat to the safety and welfare of children in those schools.
Our armed security are not in uniform and blend well into the high school. No one has dared to bring a weapon into our high schools.
One thing to keep in mind, armed security are a great deterrent! We have armed security in banks don't we?
All the women in my life carry concealed and you would never know it. And that includes my 37 year old daughter and my 22 year daughter. And I would like to see you take their weapons before they put two rounds center mass. And that also includes my wife.
Good luck with that.
Glenn Beck wrote a book called "Arguing with Idiots". That's what this guy did, and all it did was make them both look like one. I'd've, instead, told him to cite me (ON THE SPOT) verifiable statistics that prove the effectivity of "gun" control, over such things as open carry. I'd make sure to cite things like England's laughably high murder and violence rates:
and ask him why such a socialist, freedom suppressing regime like England (where there are not only no Constitutional rights to bear arms, but no Constitutional Rights at all), seems to be less safe to walk thorugh, than a Chicago park at night, while wearing a glow in the dark Romney t shirt and a Bush mask. The NRA isn't composed of people any smarter than the average Republican. They're too stupid to realize that being on the defense isn't any way to fight a war. Really, they shouldn't've even issued a 'statement' on the mass murder, because it had nothing to do with them, and they had nothing to do with it.
A majority of our recent mass murderers were mentally ill—and displayed signs of it before setting out to kill.
So why are we so focused on guns rather than mental health?
The Bushmaster assault-style rifle, civilian version has an approximate firing rate of 45 shots per minute, which sounds about right. But at this rate of fire the odds of hitting a lot of people or targets are pretty slim.
There was a teacher I believe that was describing what she was hearing during the shooting. She stated that she heard pop pop pop pop, which to me means that this sick bastard was taking aim and squeezing off one round then re-aiming and shooting another round. He simply wasn't squeezing the trigger as fast as he could but was taking his time.
Like I said in another post. There sure has been a lot of mass shootings in the last 4 years? Have (so called) 'assault weapons' become that much more dangerous in such a short period of time? Or might there just be something to what Wayne LaPierre had to say about the (liberal) moral decay of the society.
The father of the theater shooter and the CT shooter were both scheduled to testify in the LIBOR fraud scandal. Now the case is suddenly settled.....hummmm
Oh and it should also be noted Gregory sends his kids to Sidwell School, the same school Obama sends his kids too which has security not counting the SS protection afforded Obama's children
How about that folks. here's a World Wide proven idiotic hypocrite attempting to make a good upstanding former law enforcement officer with an impeachable record, out to be a hypocrite. Now aint that classic!
After reading back through the comments, I wasn't surprised by what I thought I wouldn't find.
Nukeman and I think Orangeone were the only ones to comment about the media bias.
The Biases of the Media pushing their socialist agenda has become so common place we have come to expect it and are seldom outraged.
So much so that when a personality reads questions for 22 minutes prepared for him by the writers of the show for the purpose of attacking the constitution and a guest defending the constitution, we congratulate the guest and his comment for defending out rights.
What would be said if Fox had one person on and the guest was attacked for their stand?
There would probably be a petition on the WH web site to pull their broadcast licenses.
It's interesting that this 22 minute inquisition could have been done in a single repartee and saved us all a lot of time and irritation.
Gregory: Mr. LaPierre, do you want guns banned, yes or no? If no, we'll delete this interview. If yes, that's what we want to broadcast in tomorrow's news.
LaPierre: Go F*** yourself.
Not only are we but gun sales are through the roof across the nation! NRA has 8,000 new memberships/day average, gun shops and other stores cannot keep ammunition in stock.
Well, if nothing else, the economy is being stimulated a bit.
I drove past the the monthly gun show on the way to the museum today, just before noon. There almost wasn't a place to park another in the fair grounds parking lot. Sure looks like Santa might be bringing a lot of people guns or ammunition for Christmas.
There are a lot of .22's around but that might be a little misleading. An AR-15 and an M-16 are .223 (only .003" larger but with a lot of powder pushing them). ;-)
My 'work' weapon is a .32 cal. (approx. 8.432mm) which is only slightly smaller than a 9mm (approx. .3543 cal.) A good, compact, little .32 cal. semi-auto is cheap and easy to find. and pocket book friendly. ;-)
I think it goes without saying that you have to get a Concealed Carry Permit, for one of these.
Pick up a medium sized 'something'. The little 'somethings' don't have enough stopping power. ;-) ;-)
Our large one is in March and I intend to attend it! Just might pick up a little something while I'm there :)
