Two blog posts today should shred the credibility of Meet the Press´s David Gregory in making arguments for gun control and against appropriate armed staff or security personnel at schools -- or they would, if journalists had the least bit of interest in exposing lawbreaking and hyprocritical behavior by their professional colleagues. During the show, as reported at the Patriot Perspective, relaying a point first brought out by a member of the AR15.com forum site, Gregory "decided to wave around a 30-round AR-15 magazine" in direct violation of the District of Columbia "DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines"
At the insistence of this Administration, the MSM is participating in Alinskyism by choosing targets and marginalizing them.
How many targets does the Left now attack, all at the same time? Let´s see. Here´s a short list of targets:
Christianity, religious liberty in general except for Islam, private property, lawful gun owners and the NRA, small businesses, the oil industry, the wealthy (anyone not on welfare), insurance companies, banks, doctors and hospitals, inventors, innovators, medical equipment manufacturers and developers, non-union employees, school choice proponents, pro-lifers, the Tea Party, the Republican Party, the Courts, white people, the Constitution, the auto industry (except for "green" cars) the coal industry, taxpayers, the fast food industry, Rush Limbaugh and conservative talk radio, Fox News, the Internet, America´s currency, WalMart, Israel, Chick-Fil-A....
I resent being instructed and lectured about gun rights and gun laws by snotty television personalities who employ large guards armed with very large weapons; and who send their children to schools with a security department that employs eleven more large men armed with large weapons.
Until you live the life or ordinary people, David, keep your big mouth shut about what gun laws we need and which gun laws we enforce.

Oh well gee. Here is my shocked face: 8^|
Why is anyone surprised by this?
I´d be more interested in how Wayne LaPierre reacted. I don´t watch NBC anything any more, and I just don´t have the true desire to go looking for this answer myself.
I hope he at least made it clear that the AR in the AR-15´s stands for Armalite, the company that makes these rifles, and NOT ´assault rifle´ or ´automatic rifle´. Can he do even that?
And did he convey that these rifles (which is all they are ... no different in function and operation than any other rifle - they just LOOK different) - that these rifles do NOT rapid-fire with each trigger pull? One pull, one shot. They are not machine guns.

Gregory, a member of the DC elite, sends his children to ultra exclusive Sidwell Friends. Chelsea Clinton and the Obama girls attend. Gregory´s children are safe there, as the school has a security force of 11. David Gregory and Obama aren´t stuck in failing DC metro schools like poor black children of the DC inner city. Another member of the cocktail party circuit who doesn´t want the rest of us to have what he has.
It´s not new that reporters and celebrities go before cameras to proclaim the evil of gun ownership, while they personally hire armed personnel for themselves and their family members. Who can forget loudmouth Rosie O´Donnell as she demeaned all gun owners in 1999 .... until she was silenced while having to admit that she employed personal armed guards for her children! .... I also recall when Charlton Heston, then the president of NRA, told the story of a Hollywood anti-NRA friend who asked Heston for a gun.
These people view themselves as above the law, but then .... so does the man chose as president.
David! Why don´t you bring Prince ´Red´ Bloomberg of NYC on to your show next week? Maybe, he can bring his FIVE armed bodyguards, and they can show their guns to you and the viewing audience. Perhaps, you might be able to handle one and wave it at the camera!
This is a difficult call to make, but I think I dislike Gregory more than any other media figure. His treatment of Bush at press conferences showed what side he was on. Arrogant, disrespectful and condescending. Perfect match for NBC.
Last summer I saw that CREEP David Gregory making a complete fool out of himself dancing "Gangnam Style" on an outdoor stage in Rockafeller Center, prancing around like the JackA$$ he is. How anybody can take that guy seriouly is beyond me.
The Piers Morgan petition took a little over a day to break 25K sginatures (Over30K last I looked.) I´d be surprised if there weren´t large numbers of people (ahem..cough..cough..) calling the DC PD and demanding an arrest pointing out that there is ample video evidence that a crime has been committed.
Gregory has children? I didn´t know TV announcers were allowed to reproduce. Also I thought Gregory was pro-abortion. How does he have children? That must be for the inferior folk, not for the intelligentsia.
It´s as if the Secular Progressives have infected this country with a creeping insanity. It´s spreading everywhere. The schools. The press. The church. The Government. Those infected are responsible for reelecting the worst, most anti-American President in history. It reminds me of how fascism and communism spread in the last century. And the American Constitution means nothing to the Progressive Marxists at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Nobody, I repeat, nobody will take my weapons from me without a fight.
nos. 7 and 9 - it would be Nice if Conservative guests were smart enough and prepared enough to expect these attacks and Forcefully counter them - imagine Mr. LaPierre´s confronting David Gregory with the fact that Mr. Gregory´s children[ along with Pres. Obama´s] attend a school that is protected by Armed Guards
What a grandstand play, waving that magazine around!? Simian Gregory is a careerist and one of the taller piles of schumer in the corrupt and defunct network news biz. I think they have him around just to make Brian Williams appear competent.
House and Senate negotiators were putting the finishing touches Sunday on what would be the first successful budget accord since 2011, when the battle over a soaring national debt first paralyzed Washington. The deal expected to be sealed this week on Capitol Hill would not significantly reduce the debt, now $17.3 trillion and rising. It would not close corporate tax loopholes or reform expensive health-care and retirement programs. It would not even fully replace sharp spending cuts known as the sequester, the negotiators’ primary target. After more than two years of constant crisis, the emerging agreement amounts to little more
The sequester, no matter how imperfect a policy, is arguably the only victory for fiscal conservatives in a very long time. Their victory is also president Obama’s biggest defeat (outside of the self-inflicted disastrous Obamacare rollout). It is also another opportunity to remind the American people that the alarmist predictions that we were all subjected to about the devastating impact sequestration would have on our economy didn’t materialize. Yet, in a new move, Republicans are once again considering caving to Democrats and getting rid of the spending cuts. This morning’s Wall Street Journal has the following. Still, officials close to
President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term. A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay
Three crises, one president, many bewildered friends. The first crisis, barely noticed here, is Ukraine’s sudden turn away from Europe and back to the Russian embrace. After years of negotiations for a major trading agreement with the European Union, Ukraine succumbed to characteristically blunt and brutal economic threats from Russia and abruptly walked away. Ukraine is instead considering joining the Moscow-centered Customs Union with Russia’s fellow dictatorships Belarus and Kazakhstan. This is no trivial matter. Ukraine is not just the largest European country, it’s the linchpin for Vladimir Putin’s dream of a renewed imperial Russia, hegemonic in its neighborhood and
Entering his sophomore year at Occidental College, Barack Obama sought a political movement to match his personal awakening, which he signaled to friends and family at the time by reclaiming his African first name. Barry became Barack that year. He had read Du Bois, Fanon, Malcolm X — an array of authors writing about the black struggle for liberation in his country and in others shaking off the legacy of colonial rule around the world. That is where he looked for — and found — a figure and a cause to channel his rising political enthusiasm: Nelson Mandela, then imprisoned
I´m generally for more disclosure in campaign finance, but the best argument against requiring full disclosure by groups engaged in political speech is that politicians sometimes retaliate against their critics. Sen. Elizabeth Warren inadvertently made that very argument this week. As told by Ben White at Politico, a group called "Third Way" criticized Warren. Warren apparently suspected that Third Way´s criticism of her was funded by banks. So she wrote a letter to bank CEOs demanding they disclose which political groups they´re funding. Warren sits on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. She´s basically telling the entities
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
