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.

Color me not surprised.
Bump for forwarding to some liberal hypocrites (redundant, I know)
Allegiance to an ideology and to the current spokesman for that ideology, not fidelity to their nation's Constitutional protections for individual rights, seems to motivate their shallow rhetoric.
"Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant--they have been cheated; asleep--they have been surprised; divided--the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson?...the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it....It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free." - James Madison
Gregory, and the legions of other so-called pundits and talking heads clearly have not been "well-instructed" or "enlightened" to the great principles underlying their freedom. After all, they are the products of the so-called "progressive" movement to remove the Founders' ideas from the nation's textbooks and public discourse. What a shame!
He is an ahole hope he gets fired soon
When will minorities come to realize how they are being played. For three generations they have been herded into failing, violent union controlled government schools where they remain uneducated and politically docile.Of course urban liberal elites like Obama, Gregory,Rahm Emmanuel, Pelosi and the Kennedy family “choose” good private schools for themselves. The liberals also situate the abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods.
Hypocrisy from the left? Say it ain’t so!
Same old liberal hypocrisy: Armed guards and private schools for their children and failed, unguarded public schools for everyone else.
Harumph! Don’t people know who Gregory is? It should be obvious that his children are more valuable than other people’s children. Now get back to your hovels and eat your gruel, worthless peasants.
If one accepts the premise that for modern leftists abortion is disguised eugenics (which I do), then examine the statistics on abortion as relates to minorities, particularly blacks, one can only wonder how ignorant and plain stupid said minorities must be to buy into it so completely.
Gee You mean like Obama’s kids go to school with Armed guards?
Commies enjoy the perks of being in the Inner Circle.
The idea of guards sounds good—maybe arm the staff in the offices—it would be worth it to save one child from a nut—armed with a gun, bomb, knife or anything else.
And Merry Christmas to you and yours.
That has always been the liberals motto, just like the leaders in a communist country, live the sheltered entitled life while exhorting the masses to do without and conform.
Obama could always lead by example and disarm the Secret Service. If the President can survive without the need for firearms to protect him, why should anyone else need firearms? (sarc)
Gentlemen, if you want to see how a man with principles and conviction behaves (despite what the media says about him), please observe Mr. LaPierre standing up to the attacks from the Left and MSM. Unlike you, Mr. LaPierre acts like a man and doesn't fold under pressure. LaPierre acts like a man, you guys act like Pu$$ies! Got it?
First things: Sidwell Friends is the leftist equivalent of the “Little Red School House” of New York City that Ron Radosh (a former radical), so devastatingly has written about.
It is “the school” for the children of the media and Democratic white elite to go to. Why should their kids have to mix with the poor blacks and hispanics in inner city schools? Nothing says “white elitism” better than the Gregories of the media.
As for Gregory, we old-time journalists called guys like him “leftist little shits” and “pretty boys” (our term for guys who used to dress in fancy white plantation-type shirts in Vietnam and Cambodia,with three pen-holder shirt pockets.
And to top all of this, Gregory is an arrogant little pissante who doesn’t have the balls to ask a decent, penetrating question of anyone in the Administration, but who will attack anyone to the right of Harry Truman.
Instead of singing “There’s a hush all over the land” we should be singing, in honor of Gregory’s bias and cowardice, “There’s a rot growing all over the media and land”.
Somewhere in Hell there is a front-row seat for Gregory and his ilk, and the seat has 9 inch spikes in it, all pointing upwards.
I’m still working on David Gregory fathering children. Almost as unbelievable as Zero fathering children.
Thank you Weekly Standard.
We saw him and his unattractive family in an ice cream shop on Nantucket. He’s a pasty faced, pockmarked hulk of a guy.
As usual, white elitism is okay as long as it is liberals who are the elites.
Gregory, Obama are probably just the tip of the iceberg re elite left wingers with armed guards at the schools their spawn attend. Armed guards where they work. Armed chauffers and probably having permits to carry guns and have at home.
Apparently, there are 10,000 armed guards in schools at this time. Of course the mediots and the lefties in charge of our country dont want this blatant discrimination against kids in unarmed schools out in the open.
Every elite left winger should be challenged to remove the armed guards from the schools their children attend, have no armed guards where they meet in legislative sessions to destroy our constitution, have no personal armed guards/chauffers and surrender any C&C permits and guns they have before enacting new anti second ammendment laws.
