Seriously, I hope the spokesperson has the guts and the stats like Larry Corriea yesterday.

Hell, they should just get Larry to do the presser.

25 fucking NBC? was there no other feed available? seriously people we need to boycott anything involving NBC. now boycotts are normally stupid but they are the absolute most corrupt part of the MSM and their business model isn't all that great so it shouldn't take a titanic effort to push them over the edge.

28 In regards to the vote on Plan B, it was FUBAR from the start. Boehner started by negotiating with Obama. Maybe he should have started by negotiating with his own caucus, the Republicans in the house, then with the democrats, passed a bill, negotiated with the Senate and the bill they passed be signed or vetoed by Obama.

If vetoed, Boehner could negotiate to overide and send to the Senate to negotiate to overide. If there are no votes anywhere along the way there is no bill anyway.

He was worried about the optics of getting a deal when he should be worried about following the process and letting the optics reveal the way government is supposed to work. All this fancy-schmancy deal making is what got us here in the first place.

But no, he went for the back room grand bargain with TFG where the JEF could be as silly as he wants and let Reid and Pelosi cloud the water on the side line.

But don't worry about Boehner. After not having the votes for Plan B, he went home and slept like a baby. Or he should have, since he was so non-chalant with the re-election of the Marxist who is bent upon destroying our country and our way of life.

These people are too smart for our own good.

That's their idea of a conversation. Conversation for a leftist is them having a monologue and you nodding in agreement.

Posted by: joncelli at December 21, 2012 11:23 AM (RD7QR)

51 With all the foreign aid … with all the money in federal budget … can't we afford to put a police officer in every school?"

52 “(1) Something bad happened; (2) I hate you; so (3) It’s your fault."


Insty nailed pretty much the entirety of modern life, not just political life, with that.

He's not bowing down to antis. He isn't budging an inch - no mag ban, no AWB, etc.

Saying that schools should have armed security. That NRA is offering to train anyone, even implement sessions for whole schools.

59 46 I thought we were supposed to have a national conversation on guns, so why is Code Pink interrupting?

The national conversation should be about how to end the violence in our schools. The left wants a conversation on how to get rid of our ability to defend ourselvse and how fast.

64 "55 Can't see the feed at work. Am I missing anything good? "

any fears of the NRA caving are unfounded. his putting his on the feet of the poltiical class for demonizing gun owners instead of protecting kids.

Posted by: DCPensFan at December 21, 2012 11:25 AM (ma/2m)

65 #46, By "conversation" Liberals mean the same thing as when they say "compromise". What they lecture without reproach is "conversation" and "compromise" is giving them everything they wanted without resistance.

We 'mouthbreathing' (whateverthefuck that is supposed to mean as an insult) Rethuglican indbred hicks (never mind the elite families are inbred and inmarried like fricken rabbits when most rural families aren't anymore) are just too fucking stooopid to understand their brilliance!111

77 I like what I'm hearing.
Positive suggestions and proposals from a private organization.

Everything LaPierre is suggesting is currently being implemented in my school district, at virtually no extra cost to the citizens.

I will definitely be renewing my membership.

104 This is strange. They are giving each school freedom whether or not to implement, and freedom of how to tailor to their individual needs. How will this work without Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi telling everyone what to do?

113 Boston has onerous requirements for a live fire exam to obtain a FID which they never schedule. So unfortunately not an owner. Though I am a member of the NRA and the Massachusetts' GOAL.

It is easier to get a permit IN FRICKEN CAMBRIDGE, MA than it is in Boston. Even Brookline, allows for certified places to give you their required live fire exam.

"LaPierre is doing great. It's about time someone came out and stood up for the truth."

Too bad the truth is a non factor Army of free shit.

We have nothing to do with the Army of Free Shit (AFS). The AFS takes free shit that rightly belongs to the FSA. And the truth is a non-factor for us moreso, we prefer the lie. And Obama delivers!

129 Is the press and political class here in Washington so consumed by fear and hatred of the NRA and America's gun owners that you're willing to accept a world where real resistance to evil monsters is a lone, unarmed school principal left to surrender her life to shield the children in her care?

133 This is really good.

Those of us who think a separation of America is inevitable, may have seen the beginning of it just now. It's clear there is an America that believes in self-reliance and self-defense, and an America that believes in neither. I believe the liberals will now be the ones to start calling for the separation. They have seen that they are never going to get the guns away from us, nor will even the worst mass murder imaginable make us give them up voluntarily.

134 The libs on my Facebook timeline are all going nuts over this speech. I haven't yet heard it, but the reaction makes me think LaPierre must be saying something right.

And many of those libs are all upset that LaPierre didn't take questions. Oh, like your preezy? Bless your heart.

135 How is it I have not seen ONE mention of arming pilots, and the hubbub that surrounded that, as an example of what we can do RIGHT?

After 9/11, we had the huge debate on arming pilots.  Today, no one has mentioned that on either side of argument. And its a pertinent example of how this works...

Has anyone taken an armed cockpit lately?

Also, no one has mentioned that many many schools in CA and NY and IL all have armed guards and METAL DETECTORS to even get into the school- and that is just to prevent GANG violence.  So what is the big deal now??????

But they are way more likely to turn an already distrurbed kid into a killer than a locked gun safe in the family home will.Adam Lanza smashed his computer to bits so nobody would find what he had been doing on it. There are snuff games out there on the deep web that probably include very realistic massacres in elementary schools. LaPierre cited one called "Kindergarten Killer" that his research staff found. How come we have heard nothing about this game before today?

138 Posted by Sebastian at pagunblog a couple of days ago -


"This is not our last stand, it is theirs. If we beat them back now, if we deny them their agenda and keep the lawmakers in line, we will sweep these people from the field. They will, like Custer, have underestimated our numbers and our ferocity. We will dog our lawmakers. They will be sick of hearing from us by the time this is over. Obama’s historical legacy will be a lousy economy, and an ineffective and bumbling second term. It is our time to show the weak and pitiful Republicans how this is done, and how you beat Obama."

Yes please.

Of course not. The Searchlight Strangler's MO has always been to support gun rights in the Senate to placate his Nevada constituents, but he consistently supports anti-gun judges who will do the gun grabbing for him. No fingerprints.

151 Dingy Harry likes being Majority Leader (he sucks d), but with 20 D seats up for vote in 2014, and at this point about 5 are vulnerable, he doesn't want any other ammunition used against his caucus in red or purple/red states. Zero may try to backdoor something through regulation, but that could be tied up in courts for the rest of his term.

Cruising the hard Libertarian gunnysphere, they uniformly seem to think the presser was an unmitigated disaster. Apparently in large part to the fact Wayne is old and white and therefore vulnerable to Colbert's vitriol.
