By The Right Scoop


David Gregory spent 22 minutes trying to convince Wayne LaPierre that gun control should be part of the solution to stopping future mass murders in our schools. He even created a straw man right there in the interview, trying to make LaPierre look like a hypocrite by suggesting that if his standard is that we should do anything to lower the casualty count, that he should embrace smaller cartridges. But LaPierre never said he supported anything, but that he supported putting armed police officers in our schools.

LaPierre held his on against Gregory, another MSNBC host with a gun control agenda.

    It’s guns that stop people with guns Mr. Hack Gregory.

    • badbadlibs

      I’m convinced people like Gregory have a mental block to the facts so severe, that if you repeated the logic you stated until he turned 109 yrs old, he still wouldn’t get it.
      Their brains stems don’t seem to be attached to anything.

      • M_J_S

        Not true, their brains are attached to their arses

        • badbadlibs

          That makes sense too.

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        I am convinced that they have an agenda handed down to them, and people like Gregory are the best at proliferating this agenda, so they get the shows.

        David Gregory is a disgrace.The very exemplar of the court eunuch.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/KYTC7EGQASGOTQYPY2KPC4XCZY Don

        Gregory is indicative of a brainwashed lemming which is a prerequisite before becoming a part of the mainsteam media. His point of view is scripted for him and he reads it before going on the air.If he ever had an independent thought of his own, he would babble like a fool from not knowing how to present it.

          Exactly, Don. Rush plays montages of the MSM reading off identical talking points quite frequently.They all get their “information” from the same outlet and march in lockstep with it.

    • sybilll

      He knows that. That is why he sends his kids to the same school as the Obama girls, Sidwell. Sidwell has armed guards (and because of the Obama girls, secret service), but to prove it, there is a current job opening at Sidwell for a police officer. It requires an SPO license, which Google reveals is Special Police Officer Firearms Training. http://www.sidwell.edu/news/article/index.aspx?linkid=33252&moduleid=379

      Delve into the mind of a gun control advocate, if you will. This is in four parts and if you take the time to watch the videos, you will see what the reasoning of the gun-grabbing leftist is:

      The arrogance of the person representing the UN stance on gun control really shows how these people view those who use guns and those in the U.S. who uphold the Second Amendment.

  • aPLWBinAK

    The Progs continue to wade happily throught the blood of slain children to advance their fascist agenda of stripping a free people of their rights. Hysterically blaming inanimate objects (guns) for mass tragedies, while purposely ignoring the REAL cause…..an increasingly hedonistic and Godless culture that produces kids who with malice aforethought, visit unspeakable evil upon innocents because they’re miffed that somebody else may have got more hugs than them, or something.

        Poor Johnny also had as many as fifty vaccines between birth and fifth grade which had brain damaging neuro-toxins in them. Johnny also may have been raised brushing his teeth with fluoride, drinking it, showing in it, and getting fluoride treatments, which damages the central nervous system among many other things. Johnny was subjected to massive amounts of murder reenactments and played video games that reward murder. Johny also was raised on GMO foods, and has had a total lack of nutrients needed for his body and mind to battle the effects of the chemical and biological attack on the American public. Johnny was put through a Godless propaganda system known as the public schools and learned that there is no real value to human life, and that government is god. Johnny was also set up as a patsy because he was the son of a man who was supposed to testify on the Libor scandal, but won’t now. Johnny had at least two other accomplices that the media decided to ignore, making Johnny the only problem, along with the “assault” rifle that they found in the trunk of the car well after the actual shooting. Johnny was an autistic mental incompetent who apparently killed his mother while sleeping, then went into a school and successfully killed 26 people all by himself, leaving no actual witnesses who could confirm that he was the only one. Poor Johnny was bastardized by the system long before this day, and was killed as a patsy for a government/media blitz to take rights from the rest of this country.

                It looks like we need the government to mandate hugs for everyone who acts strange. The penalty for not hugging should probably be the loss of your second amendment rights. You shouldn’t be able to own guns unless you are a prolific hugger. This would actually solve all of the problems of the world. We could have the UN come up with another arms treaty that bans guns in countries that won’t make this national law. No hug hating country should be armed.

                  I…. I…. I don’t hug!! I don’t like people getting close to me… But if they try to take away my arms… All heck might break loose! Why don’t I hug? I don’t know… I don’t like people getting closer than 3 feet either… Personal space… If someone gets that close… I move back to recreate the space again. I’m a little anti-social and a lot shy (according to my wife… Who, BTW, I don’t mind hugging at all :-) )…

                  I can’t be the only one that isn’t comfortable hugging? If a stranger tries to hug me, I stop him/her and tell them straight, I don’t hug… I might appreciate the sentiment, but no… I’m all over the place with this post so I’ll stop now.

    For bonus points David Gregory Violates DC Gun Law On National TV

    Meet the Press’s studios are located in Washington DC. This morning on “Meet the Press”, David Gregory decided to wave around a 30-round AR-15 magazine.

    DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01

    (b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The term large capacity ammunition feeding device shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition..”

    • Nukeman60

      So, what’s it take to file charges? It’s bad enough the liberals want these laws, but to blatantly violate them on national TV is just a slap in the face. They always think the laws apply to others and not them.

    Wasn’t there a law against killing?
    How many other laws did lanza break committing the crime.

    Then asked him to turn himself in for having an illigal clip in his possession.

    Who cares what the NRA has to say about it. There WILL be gun control with or without their support. We need to do all we can in an effort to prevent mass murders like Newtown happen again.

    • Nukeman60

      Ahhh, good to see you agree we need to get rid of gun-free zones that are just killing zones with our children as targets. Other than that, tell me what new gun control law Connecticut can pass that will stop a wacko from entering an unprotected area and committing mass murder, whether it’s with a gun, a knife or a chainsaw?

      Would that be a ban on all assault weapons? Any item can be an assault weapon.

      Ban all guns? That would keep the guns out of the hands of the law-abiding citizens and those who would protect our children – but not the criminals and wackos who attack with anything and everything.

      How about just banning the ammo? Would that stop a criminal from getting it? No.

      Maybe we just make a BIGGER sign that says “gun-free zone”. That would certainly scare away the bad guys for sure. Yeah, that’s the answer.

    • badbadlibs

      How about we care what the Constitution says? Or is that just a big, bad bother to you folks who insist on being controlled by the government?

      62 school aged kids died in Chicago this year. Chicago, like Newtown, like a movie theater, like Columbine, like Virgina Tech, all no gun zones.

      People will die when criminals have guns and law abiding citizens have theirs taken away.

      The 2nd Amendment is law for a reason.

    • Orangeone

      Best place to start is to eliminate the Board of Education and have parents take responsibility for educating their own children rather than placing them into the custody of bus drivers, “teachers”, administrators and others to brainwash them for a few hours every day.

      Parents should be required to teach the true history, not the liberal’s version of events.

      Every child should be required to recite the Declaration of Independence and name every signer, also to list every Constitutional Amendment before they are permitted to have a high school degree.

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      A really foolish thing to do would be to attempt to break the law of the land by infringing on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. People who support that are inciting violence, and removing people’s right to defend themselves. In short, you are calling for rivers of blood.

      Why would you want to see rivers of blood?

    A family isn’t safer from an armed intruder if the father has a gun in the house and he knows how to use it? That’s an emotional argument David? Really?

    Gregory oozes Goebbels propaganda from every hole in his body

    • Rshill7

      If he were unarmed and assaulted by someone who was armed, he could end up with a few more holes in his body. Why, he could be as holey as Swiss cheese before he could say, “Hey, that weapon is against the…”

      By the way, that’s not an emotional argument unless one wants to get emotional about it. It’s a logical argument, a common sense argument. The reciprocal would be the nonsensical argument. Gregory is peddling nonsense. He is now qualified to pedal a tricycle and a Big Wheel, and almost mature enough to handle both.

      I’ll bet the man whose wife and daughters were raped, killed and set on fire a few years ago wishes he could’ve shot those two guys that ruined his life and ended those of his family.

      If you are the head of your household and do not have a gun in your home, in my opinion, you are an utter fool. Who is going to protect your family, the cops?

      Please. Let the cops remove the dead bodies of the intruders. They can’t stop them after the fact any more than closing the barn door after the horses get out can reverse that situation.

    Seems to me having armed police in the schools from the get-go could ONLY be a step-up from what we have now…

  • Nukeman60

    Don’t you just love Gregory’s opening statement – “…the man at the center of the debate…answering questions for the first time since the shootings…” Makes LaPierre seem like the person responsible for the tragedy. I’m not surprised, but can the media get any lower?

  • Sober_Thinking

    I have an idea. Implement “gun control” or lower caliber shells for the bodyguards of these liberal nut jobs.

    Same thing as taxes… if they’re for raising tax rates on others, raise theirs. It’s their chance to be “patriotic”.

    • FreeManWalking

      I say make them give up their bodyguards and sew up their lips.

      They should face the world just like the rest of us, and if they want to limit some of my rights I want to limit their.

      • Orangeone

        Love the idea! Let’s take away all of the Constitutional rights and study it for 10 years to see if there has been an effect.

      • Sober_Thinking

        It’s funny, when I first read your response, I thought the “sew up their lips” comment was a bit extreme. However, you have aptly described our plight… we seem to have no voice.

        We resist, the media ignores us. We voice our concerns and again no one hears us. We cite example after example, statistic after statistic proving they are wrong and biased… deaf ears. We quote the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, crickets. We scream about the hypocrisy of Holder and Obama over Fast and Furious and they put their fingers in their ears and refuse to do their jobs. In essence, they are trying to “sew up our lips” and they already have in many cases. They are intentionally misleading the lemming and low-information American people while trying to stifle our truth and opposition to their lies and misinformation.

        So, you have eloquently stated the truth. And yes, I agree with your solution… it is exactly what we face during these dark times. They would be as naked and “helpless” as we are. However, we have the NRA and we outnumber them. :)

        • FreeManWalking

          Thanks ST, and well espoused Sir! My thoughts originated with the MSM giving up the 1st amendment, which really isn’t the problem, they do not bring to the top or forefront the abuses and corruption of the 0bam Government instead they cover it up and help promote it. There should be an amendment to stifle an oppressive regime.

          It is clear david guileory isn’t going to talk the 2nd amendment away, and if he as a man and did try to do so physically he would in all probability be schooled on how effective a NON-Gun Free Zone is at providing protection.

  • RocklinConservative

    By reducing the amount of ammo that can go into a clip, Judge Burns says we ”might be able to take the ‘mass’ out of ‘mass shooting’ or at least make the perpetrator’s job a bit harder.”

    And yet Gregory uses that same argument against LaPierre when he says to him “that’s your standard – that fewer peole should be killed”. Well, personally, I think that is an excellent place to start.

    It only takes a seconds to reload and keep shooting until the good guys get there from whereever they are when the call comes. And it only takes a second or two to put a bullet in the bad guy when you are a hallway or two away.

    Gregory… PICK ONE!!!

    NBC Universal is a publicly traded company. Telephone number: (212) 664-4444. Here are their directors, might recognize one of them! Michael J. Angelakis, Stephen B. Burke and Brian L.

Might be good to call and ask when Gregory will be turned over to law enforcement. I’m going to email KPMG, their external audit firm and ask when they plan to require management to comply with federal law and disclose to the stockholders that Mr. Gregory has been turned in for his blatant violation of the law.

    I’m sorry to go off-topic here, but this story is so insane I have to post the link. I can actually see this being the case, and if it is, it is the most perfect illustration of why the GOP establishment is pure garbage, and why if they continue to dominate the party, there is absolutely no reason to ever support them. They abandon Rep. West, they sideline Rep. Bachmann, and they detest Gov. Palin as much if not more than the MSM/Democrat Party. Screw them.

Wayne only mentioned the second amendment once, and it wasn’t so much in defense or explanation of the second amendment. All of Wayne’s suggested measures are based on federal mandates and funding. This is a proliferation of big government, verses returning the security of state and local institutions to those local governments.

    I understand that Wayne is attempting to battle the liberal media blitz, and government movement toward gun control, but he failed in addressing the real reason for the second amendment, and actually avoided it, along with not answering directly many of the questions presented to him, when he could have with a defense of the second amendment.

    You are soft Wayne. You are allowing the liberal machine move you toward compromise in the politicization of the issue.

    • Orangeone

      I think the reason Wayne is suggesting the funding of armed security in schools via the federal government is because it is already in place. He mentioned that during Friday’s speech, no need for more bureaucracy or debate, use the funding mechanism already in place. He isn’t supporting larger gov’t just points out the immediate solution. The feds fund based on per student.

      Although I too would have liked to see him point more to the 2nd Amendment and defense against tyranny, that would have opened the liberals’ doors to conspiracy theories, take the message off target which is what they want. He did a good job staying on point. We The People are raising the 2nd Amendment protection of the people.

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        My brain produced those thoughts, not me. :)

        I think that individual protection of liberty should be added to Wayne’s argument. He is already espousing the need for personal safety via guns, so he isn’t doing too bad, and has to play the politician in this game, or not be allowed speak his mind at the UN and congress. When the media doesn’t allow “the people” to have the stage to make the argument, he would do well to at least sneak it in once and a while. It is easy and reasonable to defend , so let it be defended.

        It would just be nice to have the biggest defender of our second amendment rights defend the ninth and tenth as well.

        • Orangeone

          I think he will.  The conversation has only just started and I think he hit Friday’s speech out of the ballpark.  He needs to keep these libtards and MSM focused on the facts, which is nearly impossible.  I follow the NRA on Twitter and they are tweeting 2nd Amendment rights and facts multiple times per day. That is reaching a huge audience too.
          BTW, your brain is doing a great job as are you!

    The Constitution shall be enforced. It is the supreme law of the land, so law-abiding citizens must follow that law.

    • NYGino

      Law abiding citizens will follow the law. But, as you know, there are lots of citizens who are not law abiding and they could care less about the law, whether it be a municipality code or a law spelled out in the Constitution.

      These non law abiding citizens can be found anywhere from back alleys to the White House itself. When you read a report on someone who was arrested for a crime and the report indicates multiple previous arrests that tells us that the criminal/justice system is failing us. Why is someone with 10-20-30 arrests still walking around?

      When we see an elected official ignoring his oath to obey and protect the Constitution and there is no outcry from the press or sanctions imposed by others that tells us that some laws are to be obeyed and some not so much. It tells us that some people are allowed to break the law and some aren’t. These inconsistencies also weaken our laws and lessen their importance in some minds.

      Another problem with our structure of laws is the out of whack priorities that are inherent in them. But that’s another story for another time.

              9mm is coming to mind…..

              Fact I was unaware of: most law enforcement deaths by shooting are by .22

              • tinlizzieowner

                There are a lot of .22’s around but that might be a little misleading. An AR-15 and an M-16 are .223 (only .003″ larger but with a lot of powder pushing them). ;-)
                My ‘work’ weapon is a .32 cal. (approx. 8.432mm) which is only slightly smaller than a 9mm (approx. .3543 cal.) A good, compact, little .32 cal. semi-auto is cheap and easy to find. and pocket book friendly. ;-)

    After reading back through the comments, I wasn’t surprised by what I thought I wouldn’t find.

    Nukeman and I think Orangeone were the only ones to comment about the media bias.

    The Biases of the Media pushing their socialist agenda has become so common place we have come to expect it and are seldom outraged.

    So much so that when a personality reads questions for 22 minutes prepared for him by the writers of the show for the purpose of attacking the constitution and a guest defending the constitution, we congratulate the guest and his comment for defending out rights.

    What would be said if Fox had one person on and the guest was attacked for their stand?

    There would probably be a petition on the WH web site to pull their broadcast licenses.

    • Nukeman60

      It’s interesting that this 22 minute inquisition could have been done in a single repartee and saved us all a lot of time and irritation.

      Gregory: Mr. LaPierre, do you want guns banned, yes or no? If no, we’ll delete this interview. If yes, that’s what we want to broadcast in tomorrow’s news.

      LaPierre: Go F*** yourself.

  • Biggbear52

    Oh and it should also be noted Gregory sends his kids to Sidwell School, the same school Obama sends his kids too which has security not counting the SS protection afforded Obama’s children

      Well isn’t that just special. Armed security is okay for some but not for the common person.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Like I said in another post. There sure has been a lot of mass shootings in the last 4 years? Have (so called) ‘assault weapons’ become that much more dangerous in such a short period of time? Or might there just be something to what Wayne LaPierre had to say about the (liberal) moral decay of the society.

    Hey David,

    A majority of our recent mass murderers were mentally ill—and displayed signs of it before setting out to kill.

    So why are we so focused on guns rather than mental health?

    The Bushmaster assault-style rifle, civilian version has an approximate firing rate of 45 shots per minute, which sounds about right. But at this rate of fire the odds of hitting a lot of people or targets are pretty slim.

    There was a teacher I believe that was describing what she was hearing during the shooting. She stated that she heard pop pop pop pop, which to me means that this sick bastard was taking aim and squeezing off one round then re-aiming and shooting another round. He simply wasn’t squeezing the trigger as fast as he could but was taking his time.

    • Orangeone

      Great points. The shooters were also liberals.

    Glenn Beck wrote a book called “Arguing with Idiots”. That’s what this guy did, and all it did was make them both look like one. I’d’ve, instead, told him to cite me (ON THE SPOT) verifiable statistics that prove the effectivity of “gun” control, over such things as open carry. I’d make sure to cite things like England’s laughably high murder and violence rates:

    http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2012/12/11/gun-crime-soars-in-england-where-guns-are-banned-n1464528

    and ask him why such a socialist, freedom suppressing regime like England (where there are not only no Constitutional rights to bear arms, but no Constitutional Rights at all), seems to be less safe to walk thorugh, than a Chicago park at night, while wearing a glow in the dark Romney t shirt and a Bush mask. The NRA isn’t composed of people any smarter than the average Republican. They’re too stupid to realize that being on the defense isn’t any way to fight a war. Really, they shouldn’t’ve even issued a ‘statement’ on the mass murder, because it had nothing to do with them, and they had nothing to do with it.

    Personally I prefer the teachers and or staff carrying concealed rather than armed guards for two reasons.

    First. Teachers are already paid to be there so there is no additional funding needed other than getting them certified.

    Second. Assailants wouldn’t know who was armed. No uniforms or persons always located at certain positions in schools such as entrance ways than might be circumvented by would be assailants.

    Just my opinion but then I’m old school and old military. We were taught not to do the obvious and to camouflage.

    • Orangeone

      If you think teachers will conceal and carry without the doubling or tripling of their pay, you are not paying attention. The students will quickly know which teacher is armed. It only takes two bullies to tackle a young teacher, take her gun and hold her at gunpoint while other students do unseemly illegal acts. Arming teachers is nonsense and a threat to the safety and welfare of children in those schools.

      Our armed security are not in uniform and blend well into the high school. No one has dared to bring a weapon into our high schools.

      One thing to keep in mind, armed security are a great deterrent! We have armed security in banks don’t we?

      • http://twitter.com/08hayabusa 08hayabusa

        All the women in my life carry concealed and you would never know it. And that includes my 37 year old daughter and my 22 year daughter. And I would like to see you take their weapons before they put two rounds center mass. And that also includes my wife.

        Good luck with that.

        • Orangeone

          I wouldn’t try but the Chicago high school thugs most certainly would.

  • toongoon

    Somebody posted this here the other day. I’m sorry I don’t remember who, but you deserve credit. Schools are fireproof, the chance of a death from fire is almost zero between construction materials and drills and training. I’ll bet you can go can go into 1000 different schools and ask the teachers and students what they are supposed in a fire and they will give you a complete rundown on exactly what they are supposed to do. But if you ask those same people what they are supposed to do they will not have any training. There is is the problem, the schools are run by government and the unions with an agenda to eliminate guns. They appear to welcome shootings and do absolutely nothing to educate staff and students or protect them.

    Just as Fast and Furious was created to pile up dead bodies to affect public sympathy so are our schools used in the same way. Drive fear of guns into citizens so they think that guns are the problems, not even questioning that more people are murdered by other means than guns, thereby surrendering their rights to a more oppressive government.

    Gregory is nothing but a mouthpiece for the Pravda propaganda spewing MSM seeking to disarm us. Any idiot with two braincells has the capacity to figure out that you can ban all the guns you want and it won’t prevent the criminals from obtaining even one firearm or one magazine. They will always have all the weapons and ammunition they need.

    “Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two parties: 1) Those who fear and distrust the people 2) Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe depository of the public interest.”

    “No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Purely coincidental that Zero and his gun grabbing buddies push for more gun control after the coincidental wave of gun violence we have seen popularized through the WH propaganda arm (the irrelevant leftist media outlets). That’s what Zero and the gun grabbers have wanted all along and now with the deaths of children caused “solely” by guns and nothing but guns, they have got a large segment of the American population and so-called pro-Second Amendment politicians (Joe Manchin of West Virginia for one) emotionally invested in some form of gun control now. Oh excuse me, the incident in Wyoming did not feature firearms but bow and arrow was the weaponry of choice. Excuse me again, how many school-age children have been killed in the so-called gun controlled city of Chicago, the hometown of Zero? – http://tv.msnbc.com/2012/12/20/in-newtowns-shadow-chicagos-bleak-gun-toll-goes-on/ – Yet the deaths of children in Chicago didn’t really seem to tug at Zero’s heartstrings as much as the incident at Sandy Hook did. Perhaps Zero was too busy running for re-election. Oh excuse me yet again, I shouldn’t state the violence was caused by nothing but guns. I guess mental illness had something to do with it too. We’ll have to pass legislation requiring psychological evaluations for all who wish to purchase firearms from now on. Yeah, that will work well.

  • Charm4sure

    Don’t you just love Gregory’s unwillingness to consider anything beside more gun control on law abiding citizens while he disses La Pierre for not being willing to accept more gun control for the law abiding? The democrat party is determined to run your life however they see fit. They think the average person is beneath them and underserving of freedom. You let these people have anything at all and that just encourages them to take more. These are terribly misguided people at best.

And he’s undermined himself I hear by deflecting to violent movies when the truth is people are accountable for their own actions, a crazy person is a crazy person, and we should blame them for their own actions instead of some object like the left does.

Also, does your body guard carry firearms ? He was not prepared and could have made him very unconfortable with a few basic replys.
