Wayne LaPierre: Gun control
‘not going to make any kid safer’

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/23/2012 11:57:45 AM

National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre said Sunday that gun control measures, including an assault weapons ban, won’t do anything to to prevent mass shootings like the recent elementary school killing in Newtown, Conn.“I know this town wants to argue about gun control,” LaPierre said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” adding: ”It’s not going to work. It hasn’t worked.” Pressed repeatedly by host David Gregory on whether gun control played a role as one of several possible solutions to the spate of mass shootings in recent years, LaPierre didn’t budge.

I don´t think CC would be a good idea for me. I might snap if I get in a 20 item grocery line and someone ahead of me has a full cart.

What I´d like to do is see the NRA create a map locating a point of light on every single family wth an NRA member. Then they should present the map as "Citizen Safety Zones." The closer you are to that point of light, the more likely it is that you will be safe from gun crime. The second thing I would like to see them do is create an ad campaign (using the Old Uncle Sam "I want you" model) that says "I want wherever YOU are to be the safest place in the world for all of those around you."

They never do. And we still let them seize the narrative with "assault rifle". No on should ever allow any conversation with anyone to proceed without challenging that false premise.

Gregory was difficult to watch because he was like a yappy little terrier nipping at the heels of LaPierre. LaPierre should have been an English Mastiff and place a paw on this guy´s mouth, schooled him on the NRA´s 2nd Amendment agenda, released Gregory and bid him a Merry Christmas as he left the studio.
We must control the narrative, or at the very least, get ours out in a timely, succinct way. Stop being on the defense people.

The left, who according to themselves, love children [after they survive the killing fields of their first 9 months]is willing to do ANYTHING to stop another school killing.

"Anything" here means anything on a leftard sacred-cow list, such as abortion on demand or gun-control. Like nuclear-free cities, "gun free zones" are now a major leftard sacred-cow and although the facts are that they attract crazy cowards and reduce children´s safety, well, if the NRA points out the obvious they are "crazy."

The left is thus moving their pre-birth attitude towards children up to and beyond puberty.

The idea that every school in America needs armed guards to protect children from gun-wielding mass murderers is preposterous. It is an over-reaction. It makes LaPierre sound like a nut case who agrees with the gun control nut cases as to the degree of risk, disagreeing only as to how to deal with it. I wish he would be quiet. I wish the NRA would obtain good PR consultants and let them handle this.

If it were the case that armed guards had to be stationed at every school in the country because of the danger posed by firearms in the hands of mass murderers, more gun control, beginning with banning semi-automatic weapons, would clearly be justified. It would not be EITHER/OR as some seem to think, but BOTH/AND. Armed guards would be necessary UNTIL stricter gun control and other legislation had begun to reduce the risk. LaPierre is making the case for adversaries of the NRA without seeming to realize what he is doing.

Where are the statisticians and public health epidemiologists when we need them? Where are the quantitative data that demonstrate the actual risk to children of being the victims of a mass murder at school? The risk, whatever its precise number, is vanishingly small. The entire public debate is being driven by emotion, not objective facts.

Visit the National Aquarium in Washington, DC. The entrance is blocked by two large round women of color, all decked out as "security guards" with the whole costume. They will be jabbering and laughing about the jabber while making you do the TSA put ally our stuff in the basket game. All of that just to enter a really lousy aquarium. Did that make me feel safer ? No, it made me certain their job was unimportant and only exists to provide make believe jobs to minorities. The same would happen at schools.

How many liberals would put a big sign on their own front door that told all the bad guys "There are no guns in this house"? Well that is exactly what the idiots are doing with our children in public schools. Marking them as unprotected and vulnerable. And they should be judged and prosecuted for doing so.

Does it make any sense for 40% of all gun sales to be made with no background check? If so then why not sell all guns without a background check? Criminals, crazies and even those on terrorist watch lists can buy whatever gun they wish at gun shows with no background check.

While I agree with many points Wayne LaPierre made this morning, the background check discussion was his very weakest and I have yet to hear one valid arguement for no background check before purchasing a gun.

No- except that THAT does not happen. YOU on the ther hand have swallowed a lie from a leftard and are now running with it. I´ll speak only for the state in which I live. EVERY sale by a dealer at a gunshow requires a background check exactly as it would in his storefront. Private sellers of LONG GUNS ONLY can transfer to a buyer so long as they do not have reason to believe the buyer is a prohibited person. Selling / transferring to a prohibited person is a felony. No HANDGUN may be sold or transferred without a background check at a licensed FFL. "Gun Show loophole" is like "assault weapon". Neither one actually exists. And "40% of sales" is a made up figure -imaginary and commonly known as a "lie".

Add for unintentional omission: Transferring a handgun to another person without a background check is a felony. The only transfer that may occur without a background check is parent to (adult) child of legal age to possess, spouse to spouse, and grandparent to grandchild of legal age to posess. Estates must transffer with background check via FFL. The only people who care about and abide by these laws are people WHO DO NOT BREAK THE LAW. Now what law did you say would be observed by a person iintent on committing a mass murder? I missed that part.

Sorry to bust your information bubble #16. Every gun show me and my crazy buddies attend will require background checks. They only take a few minutes to complete and verify that we are not crazy lunatics, but just hunters and patriots. You should really visit a gun show to get your facts straight.

OK # 8 - Yer crazy and here´s why. Apparently it´s OK for celebrities to be armed or have armed body guards- yeah, the same ones that will tell us guns should be banned, but hey they need protection.
All our disingenuous politicians have armed guards, but hey, they need protection. Some of those disingenuous politicians even have a CC license, but shamelessly call for gun control such as the hypocritical Diane Feinstein:
"I know the urge to arm yourself because that´s what I did. I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me."
Go to a football, baseball or basketball game and what´s there? Armed guard called the police.
Go into a bank and what will you see? Yup, armed guards.
So #8 - what you are effectively telling people here is that it´s OK to put a higher value on our celebrities, politicians and even our money in the bank, than we should for our children?

#8 is correct. This is a bad idea. What is needed is to arm the teachers. One cop is not the answer. Armed teachers is the answer. What´s more of a deterrent, one cop or 50 teachers with guns. We don´t need to send in the police every time there is a problem. Just let the people have their right to carry a weapon. It´s cheaper and it will work.

So why don´t Republicans, and the NRA, state emphatically that gun shows require background checks too.

We all have the right to bear arms.

We all have the right to live free.

The gov´t should sue the ACLU for allowing mentally unstable people to roam the streets with potential for harming (infringing on people´s rights) you and your family, and friends.

Mental health advocates should join-in.

While I otherwise agree with much of what has been said, I would point out that #17 and #19 is quite mistaken. There is no federal requirement for a background check on a transfer of a handgun from one private party to another. Perhaps there may be such laws in some states, but it is not a federal requirement, and it is surely not the law in Ohio.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week."

Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
