Skip to comments.Michael Steele: NRA presser was ‘disturbing’ (RINO Alert)
Posted on 12/21/2012 4:15:56 PM PST by Red Steel
Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele called the National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierres press conference Friday very haunting and very disturbing, in the wake of the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
I dont even know where to begin. As a supporter of the Second Amendment and a supporter of the NRA even though Im not a member of the NRA I just found it very haunting and very disturbing that our country now is talking about arming our teachers and our principals in classrooms, Steele said on MSNBC immediately after LaPierre finished his comments.
Steele continued: What does that say about us? What does that say about us? I do not believe that is where the American people want to go. I do not believe that is the response that should be coming out of the tragedy out of Newtown.
Delaware State Attorney General Beau Biden who is Vice President Joe Bidens son said there wasnt a meaningful dialogue in the press conference, in which LaPierre did not take reporters questions.
Biden added: [There] has to be a much more robust and meaningful dialogue about whether there are certain types of weapons consistent with the second amendment
that just shouldnt be in the hands of citizens other than those types of assault weapons that you take to battle that dont belong in our communities. And thats the discussion that I hope we have in a meaningful way.
Why was this emotionally compromised idiot ever allowed a position of authority?
Affirmative Action alert.
What exactly is "haunting" about this?
Well! He pretty sums up the RINO party. After all, he was the head of it during the last throttling by the left.
We have no support at all! We are on our own and the only major group that supports citizens who are still free and intend to stay that way is the NRA.
I’m proud to say that I am a member and hope many others join. It is probably our last salvation.
A liquor store is allowed more security then America’s kids.
What does that say?
These people have the brains of mush.
Prior to Michigan's "shall issue" bill being passed in 2000, taking effect in 2001, teachers with CPL's carried in their respective schools. Unfortunately that bill also created the "gun free zones" which made it illegal for them to carry any more.......
One of my best friends was a vice-principal in Warren, MI, and not only he but a number of other male teachers carried concealed until the law passed.
And for what it's worth, they would regularly visit a local shooting range to practice their skills........
The dumbest argument I just heard on Fox was by some dumbass babe who stated that "billions of dollars" would need to be spent to arm our schools with security personnel..and nobody challenged her.
Well to begin with, it says that you are idiot. The only way to have saved all those kids in Sandy Hook, and most of the teachers that died, would have been to have armed security or armed teachers. That is the ONLY way their lives could have been saved. Nothing you do now or do in the future can bring them back to life. They are dead, because you failed to protect them. All that matters right now, are all those children and teachers who will be sitting in those classrooms on Monday, completely unprotected because you care what people say about you.
FYI - Some of the terrorist that will soon be attacking us, cannot even read English. And some of those Fast and Furious military grade weapons, are sitting in Los Angeles right now.
Re: As a supporter of the Second Amendment and a supporter of the NRA even though Im not a member of the NRA
Yeah, sure you’re a supporter Mike. You traitorous scum.
You nailed it.
Steele is acting just like a liberal: a totally emotional and irrational response to the most logical solution for protecting school children possible - at least one armed guard per school, larger schools with more - and arming teachers/administration.
Only problem with the 2nd part is 90% of public school teachers and administrators are anti-gun Marxists and liberals who will NEVER allow weapons in schools and never carry themselves.
Thus, only in Texas, Oklahoma, Alaska, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina could armed teachers/admin work........
You conservatives best realize that the time for debate with leftists has long passed. The commies and Nazis will not debate you, they will demonize you, and you conservatives best realize that you need to demonize the leftist commies and Nazis in turn. Call them the every vile name you can think of. Trail these America-haters to dark parking lots and kick their butts.
We are at war.
What is up with these supposed Republicans who are becoming Dems right before my eyes. I think the guy on Red Eye last night said it best, the Republican Party is becoming the Pussy Party..just going along with Dems anyway they can.
So what? To he frank, I'd be surprised - and I'd probably re-assess my own opinion - if Steele DID like it. This melanin-enhanced version of the linguini-spined nonentities the GOP-e puts into the RNC chair is "haunted and disturbed" by what LaPierre said? Bullshit. He's just trying to sound profound about the latest beltway cause du jour and avoid pissing off his meal tickets.
RNC Chairman Michael Steele should be released from his position immediately for such an irrational and hateful expression.
The Sandy Hook massacre victims deserved to be protected. As do our children in schools nationally.
How dare Steele say otherwise! Shame on Michael Steele and the GOP party officials for allowing him to continue in his position!
