New NRA ad: Let’s redistribute school security

posted at 8:01 am on January 16, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

The NRA seems to have adopted a new strategy in their efforts to push back gun control: If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.  Oh, they’re not falling in line with gun bans and magazine limits — they’re just adopting Barack Obama’s playbook in arguing against them.  Via Buzzfeed, here’s a new 30-second ad painting Obama as “just another elitist hypocrite” for disdaining the NRA’s proposal to subsidize armed guards in schools while send his own children to a school that has armed security on site.  Why should the rich and powerful be the only families with armed security guards for their children?  Redistribute the security!

You have to admire the strategy, even if you may be skeptical of the proposal.  These types of events are rare to the point where most armed guards won’t ever see anything close to a Newtown over the course of their lifetimes, and school security isn’t a federal issue; it’s local, and schools can add guards now, if they want them.  This is more of a pushback against the scorn heaped on the NRA for proposing the idea in the wake of Sandy Hook, even though the same scorn-heapers backed Bill Clinton’s COPS program, which subsidized armed guards in schools.  That blatant hypocrisy had the White House at least belatedly considering the NRA’s proposal as one part of their response.

The NRA must be doing something right in public relations, by the way.  Either that, or the nation’s best gunseller is even better than we imagined:

A day before President Barack Obama is scheduled to release Vice President Joe Biden’s recommendations to curb gun violence in the United States, the National Rifle Association told U.S. News and World Report that they have seen membership grow by 250,000 in the month since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Politico reported membership had grown by more than 100,000 five days ago. The NRA says that when Politico reported the story, membership was close to 200,000, but the number has drastically grown in just five days. The association now has over 4.25 million members, but the NRA says that number is always fluctuating as memberships expire and new members join.

“I would say that every time President Obama opens his mouth and Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein opens her mouth and they talk about gun bans and restricting the rights of law abiding Americans, people pay attention to that and sign up,” says Andrew Arulanandam, the NRA’s public affairs director.

Yes, I think people are paying very close attention these days to Washington and the gun grabbers.

Why assume that anyone who cares would necessarily register their pro-gun interests by subscribing? For all you know, for every one that has a membership/subscription, another 50 don’t intend to advertise their aliegance to the 2nd.

Better yet, assume a third have no intention of ever voluntarily giving up their arms, especially the ones that aren’t on any registry.

Remember that it always takes a motivated 1/3 to generate critical mass for change when pushed. Happened when we kicked the redcoats out, pushing the Whigs out of politics, promoting the civil rights era etc. You sure you want to motivate this 1/3?

novaculus on January 16, 2013 at 2:47 PM

In 2011:

There were 12,664 homicides.

8,583 (67.8%) were committed with firearms.

Of the 8,583:

6,220 (72.5%) were committed with handguns.

323 (3.8%) were committed with rifles.

356 (4.2%) were committed with shotguns.

97 (1.1%) were committed with “other guns.”

1,587 (18.5%) were committed with “firearms, type not stated.”

A new AWB would not affect the overwhelming majority of murders committed with firearms.

Until Proggies stand up and demand a ban on handguns, we know that they are not serious about reducing gun crime. The relentless assault on assault weapons is just another assault on “white, conservative men,” who are the majority of those that legally own “assault weapons” and I say that as a “white, libertarian female.”

If they were really serious, then they would want to attack gun crime where it is most prevalent and with the type of guns most often used and that is in urban areas with handguns.

If you’re interested in a comparison, here are the figures from 2007:

Total homicides: 14,916

Homicides committed with firearms: 10,129

Homicides committed with handguns: 7,398

Homicides committed with rifles: 453

Homicides committed with shotguns: 457

Homicides committed with “other guns”: 116

Homicides committed with “firearms, type not stated”: 1,705

You’ll notice that the homicide-by-gun rate has dropped across-the-board since 2007.

Total homicides: Decrease of 15.1%

Homicides committed with firearms: Decrease of 15.3%

Homicides committed with handguns: Decrease of 18.94%

Homicides committed with rifles: Decrease of 29%.

Homicides committed with shotguns: Decrease of 22.1%.

Homicides committed with “other guns”: Decrease of 16.4%.

Homicides committed with “firearms, type not stated”: Decrease of 6.9%.

LOL. Apparently you aren’t intelligent enough to realize that your screaming about lying and your screaming about Christians have been exposed as nothing more than pathetic and opportunistic hypocrisy.

When you condemn the proven lies of your Obamamessiah as “bearing false witness” or telling lies, and you state that your Obamamessiah is a bad Christian, then you can speak with some credibility. But until then, all your ranting and screaming is doing is showing what a pathetic, hypocritical troll you are, nothing more than an ignorant and irrational Obama fool who has no morals, no values, no objectivity, and no ability to think logically or make an intelligent argument.

You lose, chump. You’ve been spanked. And of course you’re running away; that just proves that you can’t condemn your Obama’s lies, that you can’t follow the rules you impose on others, and that you’re nothing more than a pathetic lying bigot.

Actually, it hasn’t.

It just became the latest opportunity for the pathological liar Barack Obama to manipulate his ignorant hordes like you into attempting outright violations of the US Constitution.

Unfortunately for you and your fellow racist pigs, the fact that liberals like you are pathological fascists whose desperation to ban and confiscate all guns and strip Americans of their Constitutional rights is now in plain sight.

And Americans are fighting back, calling you out as the ghouls and hypocrites you are, pointing out how you won’t enforce the laws you have and you won’t deal with the facts of the hellholes your gun bans have created in Chicago, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and the other blue urban enclaves you’re slowly turning into Detroit.

It is clear to everyone that Barack Obama and the Obama Party won’t punish criminals. Instead, they want to punish law-abiding Americans and strip them of their rights, confiscate their guns, and leave them as defenseless targets for the Obama Party thugs.

It’s not happening. That’s why your pathetic fool is cowering behind children today and screaming/drooling that if you don’t accept Obama as Fuhrer you want to murder kids. He has nothing left but appeals to raw emotion, and since the American public sees through his lies and recognizes his hatred and contempt for anyone who opposes him, he doesn’t even have that.

According to DRUDGE, Obama will force Doctors to question patients about guns in their homes.

Nice.

Mr. Arrogant on January 16, 2013 at 11:57 AM

And, who is going to force the patient to answer? Is there going to be some sort of quid pro quo, an I’ll only treat you if you give me this gun information? And, who is to force me to be honest, if that is the case? It’s all garbage. Pediatricians are already under Federal mandate to inquire about the gun ownership status of their patients’ parents. Notice, they ask the children. Time to teach your five year old to say , “None of your frelling business, doc.” The point is, nothing has changed and in fact, didn’t Harry Reid insert that language into Obamacare dealing with this issue, at the request of the NRA? Not that it will stay there, but at this point Obama’s executive orders mean squat with respect to what I do. They only cover the various employees of various Federal agencies. He can’t legislate language out of Obamacare any more than I can. He can only affect how HHS writes its regulations, and whether they write any at all. Regulations can’t countermand the language of the statute, however.

FLASHBACK: In 1999, Obama wouldn’t support tougher prosecution for school shooters

In 1999, State Senator Barack Obama voted “present” on a bill that would require adult prosecution for discharging a gun in or near a school.

That legislation came as a response to the tragic Columbine High School shooting that year.

SB 759 provided that anyone 15 years of age or older charged with aggravated battery with a weapon in school or within 1,000 feet of a school would be charged as an adult.

It passed the Illinois State Senate in a 52-1 vote, with 5 members voting present — including Obama.

That vote followed a trend for the young lawmaker, whose controversial votes on crime legislation often raised eyebrows.

A Chicago Tribune editorial even accused Obama of being a “gutless sheep” for missing a vote on crime legislation in late 1999.

“NRA Has Higher Favorability Rating than Both Obama and the Media”

http://cnsnews.com/blog/gregory-gwyn-williams-jr/nra-has-higher-favorability-rating-both-obama-and-media

Must irk the left, that little factoid.

TheDriver on January 16, 2013 at 8:30 PM

Politico reported membership had grown by more than 100,000 five days ago. The NRA says that when Politico reported the story, membership was close to 200,000, but the number has drastically grown in just five days. The association now has over 4.25 million members, but the NRA says that number is always fluctuating as memberships expire and new members join.

Since it’s been abundantly proven that the Left INFILTRATES IN ORDER TO ALTER organizations, groups, even impersonal conversations (everywhere, online, for example), I think it’s reasonable to expect a segment of the Left has now joined the NRA with plans to try and despoil, unsettle and “change” the membership presentation as to issues and perspectives.

SO be careful when lauding the massive increase in NRA membership in general based merely on numbers. I do think a lot of the increase is due to citizens concerned about current infringement on Second Amend. right but it’d be sensible to see how many of these “new members” are, instead, Leftwingers joined/joining for subversive reasons.

The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training.The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations; Switzerland thus has one of the highest militia gun ownership rates in the world.In some 2001 statistics, it is noted that there are about 420,000 assault rifles (fully automatic, or “selective fire”) stored at private homes, mostly SIG SG 550 models. Additionally, there are some 320,000 semi-auto rifles and military pistols exempted from military service in private possession, all selective-fire weapons having been converted to semi-automatic operation only. In addition, there are several hundred thousand other semi-automatic small arms classified as carbines. The total number of firearms in private homes is estimated minimally at 1.2 million to 3 million.

Government statistics for the year 2010 records 40 homicides involving firearms, out of the 53 cases of homicide in 2010.
The annual rate of homicide by any means per 100,000 population was 0.70. The annual rate of homicide by guns per 100,000 population was 0.52.

Now tell me that more guns don’t make you safer

Homicides committed in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012:
27.
That is the statistic that has changed everything.

Homicides committed by Nazi Germany on unarmed civilians and Prisoners of War:

Between 11 and 17 million.

That is the statistic that makes equality of conventional arms between Government and Governed important.

Because of it, nothing has changed.

The same leftists that ran the ” Mitt Romney killed my wife” ads with utter glee is now offended?

Good.

This is war, glad the NRA is playing for keeps. Facts are that the Sidwell Friends school has a staff of 11 armed guards. Not secret service agents assigned to the Obama daughters, but 11 full-time armed guards to protect the kids of David Gregory, Jay Carney, and all the other DC elites.

I say if it is fine for the left to describe the NRA as “terrorists on par with Al queda”,and that Wayne LaPierre’s head should be “on a stick” then it should be perfectly fine for them to respond in kind. Of course, leftists want one set of rules for thier conduct and one set of rules for ours, just like armed guards in school.

Awesome ad, but I’m having a little trouble understanding how it helps prevent another horrific tragedy like what occurred in Newtown last month.
Twenty children ( and six adults) are dead. How many will it take? What’s next, an ad accusing a gov’t coverup of what REALLY happened that terrible day? Quick, someone get Alex Jones on the line.

Tell Him yourself. He’s omnipresent.

Be sure to say it PROUD, too.

Actually, he’s dead.
Has been for 2,000 years.
Will be forever.

Start liking it.

At this rate you’ll will be burning in hell forever, chump. I don’t relish the thought of seeing Him wipe the smirk off your hideous face, because not even you deserve that face.

He was resurrected. But you don’t have to “like it”, and he will personally protect your right to “not like it” and/or reject it.

When you see him, you can thank him for that.

If the doc asks about guns, just lie. This is what the regime does everyday so it must be acceptable. My thought is, the progs have made it legal to kill babies before they are born, gays can get married, churches have to provide birth control, free speech is regulated for hate, guns to be regulated, they can take your house if it produces more taxes, we have no say in bills passed in our House, our leaders don’t even have to read the bills before voting, we ask them to stop spending money we don’t have and they keep right on spending, our borders still aren’t secure after being promised over and over, dear leader wants amnesty for all, our health care insurance has been taken over, ditto student loans and car companies, our money is worthless, interest rates and employment are still lower and the guy gets reelected who’s behind all this mess. Anyone think we still have a chance at taking the country back. If we were in Vegas those would be very long odds.

Oh, back o/t; not too many talking heads liked the ad so it must have struck a nerve. They all agreed that the prezzy’s kids are off the table. Just not Bushes. It’s not about his kids anyway it’s about his position on school security or lack thereof.

An utterly tone-deaf ad that preaches to the choir.

Let’s see you wow us with what can come up with using MsPaint and Youtube in your spare time.
