In response to ComingLiberalCrackup's comment:
NBC's Meet the Press host David Gregory mocked the NRA's Wayne LaPierre for proposing that armed guards be at every school in America. But the NBC host seems to have no problem with armed guards protecting his kids everyday where they attend school in Washington, D.C.
"You proposed armed guards in school. We'll talk about that in some detail in a moment. You confronted the news media. You blamed Hollywood and the gaming industry. But never once did you concede that guns could actually be part of the problem. Is that a meaningful contribution, Mr. LaPierre, or a dodge?," asked Gregory.
Later the host suggested that guns don't prevent violence in schools (he cited the mass shootings at Columbine and Virginia Tech). "But you would concede that, as good as an idea as you think this is, it may not work. Because there have been cases where armed guards have not prevented this kind of massacre, this kind of carnage. I want you would concede that point, wouldn't you?," Gregory pleaded.
The NBC host would go on the rest of the segment to suggest that armed guards might not be effective in preventing mass murders at school. Which is perhaps an interesting theoretical argument.
But when it comes to Gregory's own kids, however, they are secured every school day by armed guards.
According to a scan of the school's online faculty-staff directory, Sidwell Friends, the tony private school of Washington's elite liberals, including the President's kids, has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed.
It's safe to say the school where Gregory sends his kids is a high-security school. It's just odd he'd want it for his kids, but wouldn't be more open to it for others.
Seriously? Comparing the security of a private school where elected officials (including the president) sends their kids Vs public schools in anywhere USA?
"Anywhere USA" is liberal-speak for the great unwashed, the commoners.
The Liberal's creed: do as I say, not as I do..
Even before the President sent his kids there, the DC elite sent their kids to a secured safe school, Sidwell Friends....secured by those with, gulp, guns. While 'anywhere usa' poor in DC suffered from unsafe schools.
Just as David Gregory can opine on NBC News and display an illegal gun clip, from the safety of NBC News headquarters, patrolled by armed guards.
