James O'Keefe of Project Veritas has come out with a new video exposing the hypocrisy of gun control advocates. Yes, it is quite telling. I'd say it's giving them a taste of their own medicine. Just what does O'Keefe do? They "set its sights on top gun control advocates to see how they felt when placed in the same position as our nation's children – within a Gun Free Zone."
O'Keefe said, "Our nation's children spend the majority of their week within schools that are starkly emblazoned with signs that read 'Gun Free Zone.' Project Veritas put that same concept to the test with some of America's most fervent advocates for gun control."
Project Veritas' citizen journalists went door to door in New York, New Jersey and Washington D.C. to see which gun control advocates would be willing to declare their homes as "Gun Free Zones" by placing a yard sign on their lawn that said just that.
"It's amazing to see members of our media equivocate and contradict their spoken and written words when faced with the dilemma to declare their own homes as Gun Free," O'Keefe continued. "Surprisingly, we found that the homes of the very New York paper that was willing to put the lives and fortunes of gun owners at risk by publishing their names and addresses, were also the most heavily armed and protected. The hypocrisy of New York's Journal News is beyond words."
Several times the team members were told by armed security guards the property was private and they should leave.
They even took to Attorney General Eric Holder's home to see if the nation's top gun restrictions enforcer would be willing to put up a "Gun Free Zone" sign at his home and declare proudly that his home was gun free. That didn't go over so well. According to O'Keefe, "FBI Police confronted our reporters within minutes of their knocking on the Attorney General's home. Eric Holder is safe and sound under armed protection, unlike the nation's children."
I'm sure the White House would have had similar opposition.
Among the responses they got included Newark Star Ledger columnist Bob Braun's comment: “I agree with you and I am on your side on this, but I’m just wondering if that’s not an invitation to somebody with a gun.” Duh?!
At the home of Journal News publisher Janet Hasson, the team was told, “We can’t put it up.” Yes this is the paper that published all the names of New York gun permit holders in their rag.
I love it when we can use freedom of the press to expose the utter hypocrisy of the Leftists, Socialists, Communists, and other gun control freaks in our society. Good job and kudos to Project Veritas for another incredible exposure of hypocrisy and lawlessness!
Work like O'Keefe's has ressulted in the exposure of ACORN for sex trafficking, voter fraud, and waste regarding the Obama stimulus by Unions. His video projects have provided a great resource to expose the Left's agenda and how they are going about it.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
