Gregory Mocks LaPierre for Proposing Armed Guards,Sends Kids to High-Security School
Weekly Standard ^ | 12/23/12 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 12/23/2012 3:42:45 PM PST by jimbo123

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.

-snip-

The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to the Washington 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.

So David Gregory is a typical Hollywood/MSM hypocrite?

Like Rosie O’Donnell who had armed guards while she wanted to disarm the average citizen?

Too bad LaPierre wasn’t armed with this fact going in. He could have made DG look silly.

Democrats are aghast at spending $8 Billion per year to protect schoolchildren yet they’re only too happy to give Planned Parenthood millions of dollars per year to kill babies.

The NRA did a good job of setting the trap and catching the liberals in blatant hypocrisy.

There is now a list a mile long of liberals who personally avail themselves of armed guards in one guise or another, but would deny the average citizen to do likewise.

LA school district is the the second largest in the nation, or at least right up there. All high schools have police asigned to every campus. Have had for years. Will take action to protect via armed police, the rest of the schools soon and already have increased drive by patrols. Why don’t liberals know their facts either.

As O’Brien passed the telescreen a thought seemed to strike him. He stopped, turned aside and pressed a switch on the wall. There was a sharp snap. The voice had stopped.
Julia uttered a tiny sound, a sort of squeak of surprise. Even in the midst of his panic, Winston was too much taken aback to be able to hold his tongue.
‘You can turn it off!’ he said.
‘Yes,’ said O’Brien, ‘we can turn it off. We have that privilege.’

You proles aren’t even outer party so just shut up, pay your taxes and send your kids and grand-kids off to the gun-free indoctrination centers & killing zones.

It is obvious that liberals believe children are a valueless, expendable commodity. That's why I despise liberals.

We need more of this hypocracy out there for all to see. Mark Levine encouraged his audience to search out congress criminals and thier families, who's carrying, who has other guns at home and what they are. Apparently you need to disarm while they protect thier sorry a##es. It is time to have some fun! Out the gun ban cretans.

Gee lets see. David Gergory's plan to ban 30 round clips "MIGHT" reduce mass killings.
Or Armed Guards that will prevent mass killings.
Only a Democrat would have a hard time deciding.

He should have been armed with the ammo against the elites sending their kids to armed and guarded schools.

In fact, this needs to be put out there in every interview and publication.

Does Gregory know that Barbara Boxer first suggested deploying the National Guard to our schools four days ago? Shouldn't Gregory be mocking Boxer for the idea, and not LaPierre?

April 16, 2000 LA Times article tells of President Bill Clinton making available federal grants to hire armed guards at schools to help protect our children on the anniversary of the Columbine shooting.

Wait a minute, federally funded armed guards are good if they are recommended by Clinton, but a Neanderthal idea if proposed by the NRA? So the content of the information isn't what makes something good or bad, it is who says the information.

More people need to know that what Wayne LaPierre suggested is what some beloved Democratic party leaders have suggested. What people also need to know is that truth doesn't matter, protecting our children doesn't matter, what matters to the left is gotcha politics.

America is going to get a symbolic solution that will produce no meaningful results because nothing else is possible without cooperation b all sides on the issue.

The solution is allow concealed carry at schools. That would not cost the tax payer much and would be very effective.

It appears that liberals would prefer more children to be endangered than to do something as unthinkable as actually agree with the bloodthirsty, evil NRA.

The real advantage of the concealed carry option is that until its pulled, no one knows who has one.

Armed guards can be spotted, distracted, eliminated, or just worked around. If the bad guys don't know who has what, planning one of their murderous escapades becomes much more difficult and problematical.

Even schools where no one carries will still benefit.

I’m sorry I missed the exchange between Gregory and Wayne LaPierre on Meet the Press. I’m in the process of moving into a new house and trying to get ready for the holidays, so I didn’t check FR until late today, AFTER my oldest daughter ran into Gregory in the Charlotte airport. She said a lot of passengers were fawning over the guy; if I had known about his comments to Mr. LaPierre, I would have told her to ask Gregory about the armed guards at the private school attended by his children. She thinks Gregory is an ass and would have no problem embarrassing him in front of his “admirers.”

One more thing: that eleven member security team at Sidwell Friends is just the tip of the iceberg. With Obama’s daughters enrolled, there is a continuous Secret Service presence as well, and I’m guessing tax dollars have been spent to upgrade school security, just as the agency makes modifications at the homes of former presidents who still receive protection.

It’s also rather interesting that Gregory’s wife is a former general counsel for Fannie Mae who resigned from the organization after it imploded in 2008. Naturally, she was never sanctioned or faced criminal charges, and quickly became a partner at a major NYC law firm.

My daughter also found it curious that Mr. Gregory was on a flight to Lexington, KY today, traveling by himself. No family in tow, and no camera crew in tow. I wasn’t aware of any breaking news out of Lexington today, certainly nothing that would require the presence of an NBC News star. I also can’t find anything in Gregory’s bio (or his wife’s) that mentions any ties to the Commonwealth. Perhaps some KY FReepers can do a little digging.

A typical hypocritical ass. I hope whoever he has on next week finds a way to work that little factoid into the conversation.

Contact the Meet the Press scum about this hypocrisy: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6872152/ns/meet_the_press-more/t/meet-press-mailbox/ Won't do too much good — their leftist mindset won't let them see their own hypocrisy — but enough messages might make these hypocritical scum back down a little.

Tim Russert used to be good, then he turned into an Obamabot.

I turned on the news one night and they were speaking with Tim Russert via remote. The very first thing that struck me was that he was as white as a sheet. No color to him other than glowing white. I remember thinking he didn’t look too good. I don’t think he was around but about a few days after that.

Then it was Bob Schieffer, wasn’t it, on MTP?

And now, David Gregory.

They were all cut from the same cloth when it came to Bammy.
