Second Amendment attack backfires

Gun owners shine a spotlight on hypocritical attacks on their rights

Gun grabbers have been exploiting the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., to pursue their long-standing agenda of disarming America. Law-abiding and responsible gun owners are fighting back against the onslaught.

NBC anchor David Gregory acted on Sunday as if D.C. firearms laws didn’t apply to him. He brandished a 30-round rifle magazine on “Meet the Press” during an interview with National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “Isn’t it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown?” Mr. Gregory asked while waving the prohibited object.

A ruthlessly enforced city ordinance makes it unlawful to possess magazines with greater than a 10-round capacity. NBC staff had contacted the Metropolitan Police Department in advance seeking permission to violate the city’s rules for the stunt. According to a spokesman for Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier, the request was denied. Mr. Gregory went ahead anyway.

So far, Chief Lanier’s office will only say it has “launched an investigation” into the matter. Several law enforcement sources say that if anyone other than a network news anchor had done this, a warrant already would have been drafted for the perpetrator’s arrest for a crime that carries a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and one year in jail.

“This is the problem when you have anti-law-enforcement liberals running the city,” said Kristopher Baumann, head of the D.C. police union. “The laws they create are for the little people, and they don’t ever expect those laws to apply to them.”

Thousands of Americans have grown so tired of the hypocrisy that they’ve started a petition on the White House website seeking the deportation of Piers Morgan, the British host of CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” who...

Piers is feeling the love and is not threatening to deport himself. Its on Daily Mail which I don’t think we are supposed to link.

“A new study shows” “Some say”: the MSM

Bam-bam has some `tells’ as well: “You know what?” “Let me be clear” and “Make no mistake about it” are all prefatory to

"Congress must reinstate and toughen the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Larry Alan Burns is a federal district judge in San Diego."

He should just move to the gun-free zone of Washington, DC.

One law for liberal elites - one law for the rest of us. Thuggishly charming in a third world kind of way...

NOW we understand why liberal elites hate the Constitution - it's a piece of paper that offers equality... eff NBC and all creeps who work there.

Now we know...

"Rules"? My understanding is that it is the law in D.C. and the Metropolitan Police Department has no authority to begin with to tell someone they may break the law. Good for them for telling him not to, now prosecute the law breaking bastard.

I wish those who hate the Constitution (Marxists, leftists, Christophobic Islamofascists) would have the intellectual honesty to propose that the Bill of Rights simply be repealed. It would be a "teachable moment".

We have a phony constitutional right to get free abortions on demand. So, why can't I walk in to a gun store and get a free gun under the right to bear arms? Wouldn't that be an "equal protection" argument under the penumbra of the distorted SCOTUS?

A lib’s definition of equal protection is a law that only applies to conservatives.

Assault weapons? The pen next to my computer has a really sharp nib, and it could be a quite deadly “assault weapon” used to puncture someone’s jugular vein.

Should we ban fine-pointed pens?

but at least it was something.

That sums up all liberal legislation. It doesn't matter if it works or not, we did something! Our consciences are clear and we can return to our status quo - hedonism and self-worship.

During REV 1, a third of the population was in favor of the king, a third in favor of freedom and a third did not care. When the war ended, the Torries in NYC were put on boats and sent away. I think it is time to take the third now who are commies living here and put them on boats, planes, cars whatever and send them to whereever we decide they need to go. In my case for them, Hell would be a great place.

This was a fantastic video. Ted Nugent literally thrashed the metrosexual British faggot Piers Morgan. (And Shirley, what idiot would ever name their kid “Piers”? Like boat piers or fishing piers, or what?).
