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.

Here is a live video stream from CBS News of President Obama’s gun control proposals scheduled to be unveiled at the White House at 11:55 AM ET today.
And another Live Video Stream, this one from NBC News:
Shameless manipulation. Now Obama’s White House is releasing what they claim are the letters of distraught children as a way to push his anti-2nd Amendment agenda. The word is, Obama will surround himself today with children who wrote letters in the aftermath of the Newtown School Shooting:
WEEKLY STANDARD: The White House today released letters from little kids pleading for gun control, just hours before President Obama is to release a comprehensive proposal to limit guns and ammunition. The letters were released to the Associated Press in what appears to be a coordinated effort to help shape the narrative the day of Obama’s announcement.
“Three days after six teachers and 20 students were killed by a rampaging gunman at their elementary school in Newtown, Conn., an 8-year-old from Maryland pulled out a sheet of paper and asked President Barack Obama for ‘some changes in the laws with guns,’” the AP reports. . . . Read More

Here is video of former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese in an interview with Newsmax. Meese talked about the Debt-Ceiling battle and then stated at around the 4:00 mark of the video that if President Obama uses Executive Orders to override the 2nd Amendment, it will be an “impeachable offense.”
Here is a brand new NRA ad that hammers Barack Obama for opposing the most obvious measure to protect school children in America – Armed Security. Yet, Obama and his children have armed security for themselves. As the ad concludes:
“Protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours.”
If President Obama uses Executive Orders to restrict 2nd Amendment Rights, he is going to face opposition from states like Texas:
POLITICO: One Texan lawmaker is playing President Barack Obama and Democrats tit for tat in the gun control debate.
State Rep. Steve Toth, a Republican, is looking to push his “Firearms Protection Act,” which would prevent any Congressional or Executive act banning or restricting so-called assault firearms and extended clips from affecting the state. In fact, any such action would be considered illegal, 1200 WOAI news of San Antonio, Texas, reported Tuesday.
Toth’s measure would make it a felony for federal officers to enforce any such ban in Texas, carrying the heavy punishment of a $50,000 fine and as many as five years in prison.
“If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution,” Toth told the news station. . . . Read More
