Full text of remarks from
National Rifle Association
CEO Wayne LaPierre on gun
control debate one week after
Newtown school shooting tragedy

New York Daily News, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/21/2012 1:09:44 PM

Full tex of NRA CEO Wayne La Pierre´s remarks delivered at 11a.m. Friday EST. The National Rifle Association´s 4 million mothers, fathers, sons and daughters join the nation in horror, outrage, grief and earnest prayer for the families of Newtown, Connecticut ... who suffered such incomprehensible loss as a result of this unspeakable crime. Out of respect for those grieving families, and until the facts are known, the NRA has refrained from comment. While some have tried to exploit tragedy for political gain, we have remained respectfully silent. Now, we must speak ... for the safety of our nation´s children.

As usual, Wayne LaPierre and the NRA have the guts to tell it like it is.

"..one week after.."

you see this FOREVER with commies and their MSM..
"one month after a child in Belize choked to death on an apricot seed, radical Rush Limbaugh said he thinks apricots do NOT contribute to.."
"ten years ago, this month, Paul Wellstone was killed in a plane.."
the communists are GREAT at creating pseudo holy/holidays commemorating ANYTHING secular or anti-freedom..
and.. continuing to bring them up in the form of "one week/month/year..."

Perhaps our communist masters are waiting for a Beslan here in the USA.

Perhaps an Opera House as in Moscow to further their ´gun control´ agenda.

Are we going to stand by and allow our kids to be exploited by these ignorant elected officials.

You will be able to judge the reason in his statement by the shrillness in the outcry by the left and the media.

Obama, Holder, and the ATF have provide assault rifles to the Mexican drug cartels, then allowed them to immigrate into the USA. A law should be passed against Obama, Holder, and the ATF (Ruby Ridge, Waco, Fast and Furious). Obama promoted a muslim to Major then set him loose with assault weapons at Fort Hood. When will Obama and the democrats be stopped?

Thanks for the much needed frank and truthful remarks, Wayne. I will now renew my lapsed NRA membership - to a Life Membership. Keep fighting the fight against the ignorant, those who believe Obama´s socialist ideals and those who would try to rewrite our beloved and sacred Constitution.

Some posters on other threads are pooh-poohing the idea of putting armed guards in every school - it would be too expensive, it wouldn´t work, it´s not practical, it´s impossible.

In my county there is an armed deputy sheriff stationed full time in every high and middle school. Not sure about elementary schools. They patrol the halls wearing bullet proof vests and their official cars are parked at the front entrance to each school. Not only do they deter attacks, the deter bad behavior of any kind both inside and outside the school.

All it takes for the funding is a change in priorities by the county government. And you know that there is waste in any government no matter the size. If they get serious they will find the funding.

An armed professional in every school would be an answer provided they were not under the jurisdiction of Janet Napolitano and Homeland Security. We sure as hell don´t need their form of security.

#11: You obviously did not read or at least did not understand the NRA´s position. Armed guards at schools was just one of many items mentioned in the full text. Let´s enforce the existing laws and let´s protect our children as well as we do our fatted politicians - especially the ones like the idiot Lilliputian Bloomberg. How did he ever get rich?

Hey #11, go ahead and impress us; What do you suggest? I really want to know.
Point is, with an active shooter on site every second or so means more bodies pile up. Having officers on site eliminates several minutes of response time, and lives WILL be saved.

DOJ Announces 6 ´Stringent Standards´
for Inmates Seeking Reduced Sentences
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/23/2014 12:01:04 PM     Post Reply
- As promised on Monday, the Justice Department today released its new criteria for inmates who want their prison sentences reduced. Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole announced six "stringent standards" the department will consider when reviewing and expediting clemency applications from federal inmates. He also replaced the Bush administration appointee who heads DOJ´s Pardons office. Under the new initiative, DOJ will prioritize clemency applications from inmates who meet all of the following requirements:-- They are currently serving time in a federal prison and likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today;

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- A Fort Carson commander who wasn´t allowed to leave for Afghanistan with his troops last month was suspended over allegations that he was insensitive to victims of sexual assault and discrimination, a newspaper reported Tuesday. The details were reported in The Gazette (http://bit.ly/1k3YHKd) based on a 361-page investigative report it obtained under the Federal Freedom of Information Act. It provided the first account the Army has released about the suspension of Col. Brian Pearl and offers a view into how sensitive the issue of sexual assault has become for the Army. It says Pearl was suspended after three

Construction workers at companies doing work for the federal government are paid as much as three times what their peers outside of government get for the same work, a Washington Examiner review of federal statistics found. Pipefitters in Laredo, Texas, for example, can usually expect to make around $11.47 hourly, but if working on a federal contract, they must be paid at least $36.49, plus benefits. Window installers in New York City make $18.87 an hour in the market -- that´s the median salary, including industry veterans -- yet the government requires those doing that work for it in the

TOKYO — President Obama stepped off Air Force One in Japan apparently with an appetite for sushi. After a quick refresh at the Hotel Okura near the U.S. Embassy, Obama joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for dinner at a tiny sushi shop in the city’s Ginza neighborhood. They were joined by U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the White House said. The restaurant — Sukiyabashi Jiro — has earned a rare three-star Michelin rating. Its owner and master chef, 89-year-old Jiro Ono, was featured in the 2011 documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” Many regard

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

Obama’s lies have led to global mistrust

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
