Typical Prog – David Gregory Mocks NRA Chief For Proposing Armed Guards At Schools . . . Fails To Mention He Sends His Kids To School Protected By Armed Guards…

Just another case of insufferable progdom. It’s outrageous that NRA head would recommend armed personnel in schools, yet same prog inquisitor has 11 armed guards in school surrounding his kids.

WASHINGTON DC - 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.

“You proposed armed guards in school. We’ll talk about that in some detail in a moment. You confronted the news media. You blamed Hollywood and the gaming industry. But never once did you concede that guns could actually be part of the problem. Is that a meaningful contribution, Mr. LaPierre, or a dodge?,” asked Gregory.

Later the host suggested that guns don’t prevent violence in schools (he cited the mass shootings at Columbine and Virginia Tech). “But you would concede that, as good as an idea as you think this is, it may not work. Because there have been cases where armed guards have not prevented this kind of massacre, this kind of carnage. I want you would concede that point, wouldn’t you?,” Gregory pleaded.

The NBC host would go on the rest of the segment to suggest that armed guards might not be effective in preventing mass murders at school. Which is perhaps an interesting theoretical argument.

But when it comes to Gregory’s own kids, however, they are secured every school day by armed guards.

The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to theWashington Post. That school is the co-ed Quaker school Sidwell Friends.

According to a scan of the school’s online faculty-staff directory, Sidwell has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed. (more)

  1. I wonder how difficult it is to get a Professional Certification in Hypocrisy. So many on the Left seem to have it.

    @SD,
    You forgot the most damning part about the entire segment:

    NBC brought a 30-round magazine into DC.

    Prediction: Boner and the young guns will cave in on guns.

    the NRA prez brought up a couple of good points
    1. there is NO gunshow loophole (which I’ve been saying and gun grabbers say it’s a lie)
    2. if a felon tries to purchase a weapon and he fails the background check, he should be arrested. not sure about on the spot though.

    • LouDaJew says:

      I don’t like the idea of armed security either at schools. just leave the laws alone, and become more harsh or violent felons who attempt to try to possess guns.
      my idea would be to eliminate private sales of gun owners without going through an FFL dealer.
      I once sold a gun to someone (filled out firearms transfer paperwork and got a copy of his driver’s license) who resold it a three or four times, and it was used by a kid who threatened his girlfriend. private selling should be illegal, sales should have to take place through an FFL dealer.

      • Knuckledraggingwino says:

        How is the issue of private gun sales even relevant in this case? The gunman’s mother bought all of the guns through a licensed dealer. The issue here is the behavior and mental condition of the gun man. We have lots of claims about his mental condition, but no documentation to verify or psychologist who treated him to substantiate the claims. We have not talked at all about the gunman’s criminal record or contacts with the police. He could be very much like the Tucson gunman who had a history of previous, criminal acts that should have resulted in prosecutions that would preclude him from owning a gun.

      • Mike says:

        In an attempt to sound reasonable, you are actually advocating that we trample on the rights of private individuals to sell guns to each other. How do you propose we monitor the sales between individuals? How much more intrusive government do you want?

        We need to do “something”. Hold on when you hear that babble. That something will usually mean the forfeiture of more of your liberties. The Patriot Act was “something”. The horrendous wasteful Iraq war was “something”. Something usually solves nothing.

        • Coast says:

          Your comment about rushing to action is spot on. That’s the way people in power like to work…a crisis occurs,and it gives them an opportunity to quickly push their agenda. Very dangerous…and usually the results are a negative to us.

      • cajunkelly says:

        uh huh, so you would create felons of the grandson (and grandfather) who is given his grandfather’s favorite double barrel shotgun which holds so many memories of grandfather, father, and grandson squirrel hunting together, or the husband who buys his wife a .38 snub nose as a surprise at Christmas. He’s gotta buy that in his own name and gift it to her if he wants it to be a surprise, yanno.

        Don’t come back and start the excuses…a ‘gift’ is a transfer, just as much as a sale is a transfer.

        With your suggestion, *I* would be a felon for the 10 gauge goose gun I bought ex for Christmas 20 some odd years ago.

    This was in the Orlando Sentinel paper yesterday:
    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/features/education/os-beth-kassab-school-safety-122312-20121222,0,2306093.column
    Here was my reply to it:
    The article written by Beth Kassah, “Don’t let NRA turn schools into armed forts”, and published by the Orlando Sentinel is a prime example of the normal dis-information, liberal spin and outright lies perpetrated by the mainstream media. Nowhere in the NRA statement did the NRA advocate for a TSA type environment, and having trained, certified and armed individuals, either teachers, staff, volunteers, or law enforcement officers is not a school fortress. Stating that a single armed individual would not be able to stop a deranged individual from going on a ten minute killing spree is strange when you consider the fact that the Connecticut shooter had to get past four adults prior to reaching students. My guess is that Ms Kassah would rather let kids handle a deranged intruder with a gun, rather than a trained adult. Nonetheless, her article totally misconstrued the NRA statement, and I’m tired of supporting newspapers and other news media outlets that thinks it’s ok to mislead the public in an attempt to destroy our constitutional rights.

    I don’t know why you keep insisting that the gun show “loophole” as defined by the anti-Americans (progressives) is a lie when it has been shown here that it exists. They say a person can go to a gun show and buy a gun without a background check and that is absolutely possible and happens every show. You cannot buy one from a dealer there, but you sure CAN conduct a private sale there. Background checks are not currently required for private sales. Until background checks are required for private sales (or all sales must go through an FFL per your proposal…YIKES!!!), then this “loophole” will exist.

    I think the problem here is that the term “loophole” is a misnomer. There is no “loophole” because there is no gap in the law. The law is perfectly clear, private sales do not require a background check. The anti-Americans have chosen that pejorative just like they call tax deductions “loopholes” .

    So yes, by dictionary or legal definition, there is no “loophole”; but you must look beyond the dictionary definition and use the term as the Anti-Americans do, use their political or ideological definition and the “loophole” exists.

    • mooney1el says:

      That was supposed to be a reply to Lou

    • Sharon says:

      “use the term as the Anti-Americans do”………….on this subject or any other, that is the one thing I will NOT do. They’ve destroyed our language, due to their malevolent plans or their stupidity….and I will NOT consciously agree with their definition of ANYTHING.

      Not now. Not ever.

      You start willingly letting them define the terms used in public conversation and legislative matters of law, you can just as well go pick up your uniform.

  8. howie says:

    Quit debating these fools. Just say it is nonsense. To allow debate over it is ridiculous and how they operate. They want to ban all guns period.

  9. czarowniczy says:

    The anti-gun folks blame social ills on inanimate objects, they do not want to blame people lest they expose their own human frailties. The a-holes are out there in force, if not just through statistics through the magic of the laissez-faire, morals-optional child rearing philosophies the progressives have pushed for the last 40 years. It’s not guns attacking schools its nutty people attacking schools. What will the progs say when the nuts start running into schools or playgrounds with knives as happens in Asia, a knife ban as Napa and Sonoma counties in California have? What will they do when they start attacking school kids with flammable liquids, have a flammable liquid 3-day waiting period followed by a ban? Prog liberals do not want to blame people fro any of their actions – at best they blame other people for other peoples’ actions and try to find an inanimate object(s) or celestial mechanics to blame their causative actions on.At some point the progs will have humanity down to a loin cloth, a blanket and a wooden bowl per person and still won’t attach personal blame or responsibility to the evil that we do.

  10. mcfyre2012 says:

    Progressives are idiots. They don’t like the armed guard suggestion for a solution, yet they are happy with “school resource officers” (aka cops and deputies) ?

    Armed guards is actually a much more economical solution to the current “resource officers”…and puts those cops and deputies back on the street where they belong.

    • czarowniczy says:

      We’ve had armed guards and metal detectors in New Orleans schools for many years to keep the thugs from shooting them up – home life in the hood follows them to school. About two years ago we had two thugs sneak through a hole in the school fence, enter the auditorium during an assembly and whack students in a revenge/drug inspired shooting. Possibly because the shooters and the shootees were members of The Usual Suspects the incident became one of ‘random school gun violence’ instead of the question: “why so many black-on-black shootings in black schools?”. The rare ‘student brings gun (usually a toy) or nail clippers to private school’ stories are played as if he were accompanied by at least two of the Horsemen. If the armed police officers were not at these NOLA schools we fear they’d all look like they were part of a Quentin Tarantino movie.

    Breaking news. 4 firefighters shot dead responding to fire in Webster, NY. Anybody know much about town of Webster?

    Sandy Hook: It’s a little shocking to discover that as of Saturday, no one has claimed the bodies of Adam Lanza or his Mother. I think there was something seriously wrong with this family.
