Howard Kurtz Scoffs At DC Police Probe Into Gun Criminal David Gregory

After all, gun laws are for the little people and prosecution of Celebrated Journalist David Gregory would be "a total waste of time."

Was the moderator of Meet the Press caught on tape, armed and dangerous, liberating a few Slurpees from a 7-Eleven? No, he waved a high-capacity ammunition clip on the air while interviewing Wayne LaPierre, asking it [sic] shouldn’t be banned.

[...]

But a police probe over what I assume was an empty ammo clip is a total waste of time. What it demonstrates above all is that journalists are getting ensnared in the political war over gun control.

Do tell. What other laws does Kurtz propose to ignore because they are stupid wastes of time?

And journalists ensnared in politics? Do. Tell.

What planet is Kurtz on that he can so casually imply that journalists are unwilling participants in the gun control debate? Have they not taken every opportunity to insert themselves into the argument, usually by framing their interviewees as crazy people, clinging to their guns and gun fantasies?

Does Kurtz not have access to television?

More notable are the ostensibly straight-news journalists who have come down on the side of stronger gun control. For example, when a Republican congressman, Georgia's Jack Kingston, argued on MSNBC recently that tough gun control laws haven't prevented mass shootings in some European countries, the network's anchor, Thomas Roberts, responded, "So, we need to just be complacent in the fact that we can send our children to school to be assassinated?"

Earlier, while reporting from Connecticut, a CNN anchor, Don Lemon, burst into an impromptu appeal for action. "We need to get guns and bullets and automatic weapons off the streets," Lemon said. "They should only be available to police officers and to hunt al-Qaeda and the Taliban and not hunt elementary school children."

Also on CNN, anchor Soledad O'Brien sought a promise from Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott to take action on guns. When Scott declined, a clearly frustrated O'Brien said she hoped the gun conversation would become "meaningful" before she was forced to "cover another tragedy." A few days before, when a conservative academic told O'Brien he believes having more guns among law-abiding citizens would reduce crime, she responded, "I just have to say, your position completely boggles me, honestly."

If journalists didn't want to be "ensnared" in the gun grabber debate, they could just shut their pie holes and report the news. Instead, they're sweating over guns in video games on the front page of the NYTimes. They're busy clucking about "gun show loopholes" that haven't existed since the mid-1990s on the radio. They're actually publishing the names and addresses of lawful gun owners.

The gun grabbers -- including so many journalists -- are doing what they usually do when the topic comes up. They are, in every medium available, calling a hundred million Americans complete lunatics. Next they're going to act all surprised when a hundred million people are pissed off about their unprofessional behavior.

Do you know what it's really about when someone starts calling something a "distraction" or, as Kurtz calls it, "a sideshow"? It's a concession that they have utterly lost the argument. The gun grabbers made monkeys of themselves. Now they'd like everyone else to just shut up about the whole thing.

You see, Howard Kurtz and other Celebrated Journalists are having a Very Important Discussion about gun control and they don't have time for any of your retrograde carrying on about your rights.

1 Turns out, for David Gregory prison would be like summer camp.
He likes it up the ass. I guess the only real difference for him would be they don't offer smores in prision, but all in all it wouldbe a "win" for him.

34 I posted this in the other Gregory post earlier but it got buried by the top headlines post. It fits here too so:

-------------------------------------------

I'm not sure if this post will get buried by the new one, but these are some thoughts I've been having about the Gregory Affair. Basically, and like many other people have said, do an Alinsky.

Ambush journalism. Hit him several times with hollered questions like 'Why did you break the law?', 'When will you be turning yourself in to the police?' and such. All 'When did you stop beating your wife?' kind of questions.

Find some literally poor schmoe, preferably black, who WAS prosecuted under the same law Gregory broke. Ask him why he was imprisoned when Gregory walks a free man. Get some nice juicy class- and race-based responses.

Back to the ambush interviews, but add in the race and class issues. Ask Gregory if he's above the law because he's white. Throw in the racist history of most gun control laws. Make his advocacy of gun control a race or class issue.

This may dilute the message too much, but there might be a way to bring in his wife's position at Fannie Mae and the New Aristocracy thing that Ace among others, has been writing about.

Progressives clearly aren't interested in the liberty aspect of the gun control debate so we need to hit their softer spots, raaacism mainly. We all know they're some of the most racist bastards on the planet but showing their hypocrisy to the softer-headed middle out there could prove useful in the political battle we're engaged in.

Were millions of gun owners in approval of what lanzer did with His mother and children Kurtz?
Kurtz are you admitting the high capacity clip was of no import nor was anyone in any danger because it is an Inanamite object just being shown to others, it was no danger because the clip itself was not active or able to do anything by itself?

This particular rhetorical tic on the part of liberals is so annoying. Hey, if you are so smart, you ought to be able to comprehend the other side's position and actually argue against it convincingly. If you're "boggled" by it, it might just be because you are a narrow-minded idiot. I've never been "boggled" by a liberal argument in my life. Frustrated that seemingly intelligent people would agree with that argument? Yes, but definitely not "boggled".

I am gladdened to see that many are forcefully striking back at the lies and obfuscations of the MFM but let's remember that the left has us outnumbered and outgunned as far as their influence in the social Media and in numbers.

We still may get saddled with a useless but punishing and unconstitutional gun grab regardless of how good our arguments or how bad their arguments are.

There should also be a concern that the GOP may not have the wherewithal to resist as our only line of defense federally is the House and Boehner has managed to hamstring himself and the majority with his soft approach and anti conservative attacks.

'if only' is their constant refrain, as if a simple move to ban something or provide something will make everything better. They intentionally ignore the reality that what they ban will always be available to those with bad intentions and what they provide will always be taken in excess by those with greedy intentions.

They have no comprehension of cause and effect and make no contingency plans in their fantasy world.

And the UK continues to become a more violent society.

When guns were less restricted, but both the US and UK more culturally conservative, there was less crime.

There seems to be an inversely proportional relationship of guns to crime, but directly proportional between liberalism and crime.

Monkey Face Gregory's display was at best childish, but they insist on projecting their unhinged way of handling things that reorder their thinking onto us.

We don't do foolish things with firearms and their component parts because we have an understanding and respect for their role.

They are not to be brandished foolishly to make a semantic point.

I'm thinking that what they subconsciously know is that THEY should not possess firearms, which of course could be their choice.

I agree that we should not do that, but if we are to apply our efforts, we should at least work to make them count for something. Again, at this point, the only way forward that I can see is by the creation of clever and entertaining videos that demonstrate the conservative message, or even better, why the Liberal message is the road to death.

I have been wanting to get into video creating and editing for quite some time, and I think I have a plethora of ideas which might work. Intelligent conservatives can read ideas and comprehend, but for the simple minded people which the Liberals absolutely need to give them majorities, the only thing that will work is pictures. Moving pictures preferably.
The difficulty is the same that advertisers face. Making something interesting enough that people will want to look at it. If this can be accomplish, the payload message goes along for the ride. Conservatives need to apply their creative juices towards creating such things. This is exactly what Breitbart and the Blaze are/were attempting to do.

Roger Simon of PJMedia is leading the way. We should follow his lead if we can.

I would really like to know how His Exaltedness David Gregory acquired that illegal 30-round magazine. Did NBC hirelings send an assistant producer to a Virginia gun store to buy it? Was it lent by an anti-gun nonprofit? Or was it borrowed from a high-ranking federal politician, someone who has several such props readily available for emotional pressers? Perhaps a DC-based local-federal constabulary handed him one "for the kids". Maybe NBC has a whole locker filled with gun-related, illegal paraphernalia at the ready for the next bloodletting.

I know he got busted for some stuff on his computer. I believe he claimed it was as part of research for a book and I know I never heard what the nature and extent the stuff was or why he'd need it for a book.

Of course after what happened with the BBC, who knows what he's actually done.

158 This particular rhetorical tic on the part of liberals is so annoying.

Really? I find their entire existence annoying. Many morons here post about "Liberal/Progressive Friends" Really "Friends"? I can't stand the a "Bastages" (Johnny Dangerously). I can tolerate anybody, and I have worked with some real pieces of work, but "Friends". I don't throw that word around lightly. You don't have to agree with me on most things to be a "friend"; but hating every fiber of my being....your a prick. Think the same of me...fine. ESaD!

166 ette: I wonder what His response to the outing of lawful gunowners of NY is?

They didn't just out gunowners. They also told criminals where it would be safe to commit violent occupied home invasions of non-gun-owners.

So, exactly how many unarmed folks in NY are going to get raped to death in their own homes because of these jack-holes?

Uncertainty of who is armed protects the unarmed as well.

I agree that liberals are the biggest wastes of carbon and oxygen on the planet. I just picked out that one thing from O'Brien because it was in the post.

The most liberal friend I have is a Sarkozy-supporting Frenchman. He and I get into hours-long debates where neither of us gives any quarter, but at least he's somewhat grounded in reality and actually debates, as opposed to rhetorically dismissing me outright or saying my arguments "boggle" him. In fact, he is more likely to say "I never thought of it like that" because there really isn't a libertarian tradition in France and that's usually the perspective I bring to the discussion.

174 I would seriously like to know where Gregory got that mag, because I can't find any for the new Bushmaster death machine Santa brought us. We just have the one it came with.

Also, the 30 round mag is standard size, not high capacity. We need to to take the language back to try to control this fun "national conversation" we're having.

176 143 I'd be more enthusiastic about harassing Gregory if I didn't think some flunkie was the one who was going to end up in jail.

This may make me an asshole, but who cares?

1) Said flunky almost certainly shares Gregory's outlook.

2) He gets a reputation for tossing flunkies under the bus. This leads to poorer quality flunkies.

3) After tossing the flunky under the bus, that opens him up to attack the next time he fucks up. "David, did you screw up again or was it a minion 'this time' ?"

179 hard to hang this on a flunky, since he was the one filmed on camera possessing it illegally. he might try and take others with him, but he's the one who is documented as being in violation.

180 One of the comments in the Kurtz article mentions that there is no "Self Righteous Blowhard" loophole in the DC gun laws.

182 Gregory violated the law he was advocating.

And now he will do everything to avoid being held to account for it.

Because HYPOCRISY!

And because it was entirely deliberate and in aid of "doing to others" what he doesn't want done to himself, I would like to see (if convicted) a maximum sentence.

That means a full year in prison, as in orange-jumpsuit prison, just like that poor guy who borrowed a jacket with ammunition in a pocket.
