Here is video of the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre on “Hannity” last night for an extended interview. LaPierre made it clear that the NRA will “stand and fight” for the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens. He said President Obama and his allies are using the Sandy Hook tragedy to try and imposed a Gun Control agenda they prepared long ago. He continued to reiterate that the single act that can be taken right away that would immediately make America’s school children safer is to put armed security in every school – something the NRA called for a month ago, which was met with derision from the media. Now, President Obama has grudgingly signed onto at least some funding to give local schools the option of doing just that if they believe it to be the best course of action. His Executive order does not call it “armed security” but mentions “school resource officer,” whom you hope would be armed.
In his ongoing crusade against the 2nd Amendment, CNN’s Piers Morgan had another meltdown last night as he debated President Obama’s Gun Control proposals with Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes. In fact, at the end, Morgan got so upset he wadded up his talking points and told the two, “It makes me sick” to hear them arguing against Obama’s proposals!
Heaven forbid we let common sense be a part of the whole “Gun Control” discussion. Newt Gingrich hits the nail on the head:
“The President’s hometown, Chicago, is the murder capital of the United States. Over 500 people were killed there last year. Vice-President Biden doesn’t seem to want to go there. I’m trying to get the House Republicans to hold hearings there. It’s illegal to have all the guns that are killing people in Chicago. If gun control works, Chicago ought to be safe.”
Yet, despite this obvious truth, not a single member of the White House Press Corps will ask Barack Obama about why Chicago is the murder capital of the U.S. if gun control works.
