John Walsh, CNN's New Anti-NRA Advocate
Politico ^ | July 4, 2014 20:09 GMT | Dylan Byers

John Walsh, the host of CNN's new primetime series "The Hunt," looks set to replace Piers Morgan as the cable network's in-house gun control advocate.

"We have a serious problem with guns in this country, and we refuse to address it," Walsh, the creator and host of "America's Most Wanted," told reporters on Monday. "The NRA solution to arm every grammar school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous."

Walsh also said that Vice President Joe Biden had agreed with his claim that politicians are “scared s--less” of the NRA.

The idea that there are many 80 year old grammar school teachers is pretty damn stupid right off the top.

The NRA never advocated arming “80 year old teachers” in order to protect schools from deranged gunmen. The NRA specifically advocated for armed security personnel in schools (think TSA). Libs don’t care to pay for armed security though because they aren’t interested in protecting children in the least, they are only interested in disarming law abiding, tax paying, American citizens-especially conservative minded, law abiding, tax paying, American citizens. Because they are waging a cold civil war against their fellow citizens.

Yep. If it was the NRA's, that is.

How many 80 year-old grammar school teachers do you know who are still teaching?

Dipsh*t.

No, John we have a serious problem with blacks owning guns in the US.

Facts are never racist. Denying facts IS racist.

John Walsh, 30 years of parlaying his son's death into fame and publicity for himself. What a guy.

Refuse to address it?!? I hear these jackballs hysterically address their silly perceptions of the issues every day!!

Walsh, being a victim of a crime doesn’t make you an expert. Dumbass.

It didn’t work too well for him anyway. Assassinated at age 28.

Oh, trust me, they have lots more to hate than Obozocarenot, they are a liberal swamp that uses the memberships of their gazillion stupid members to lobby Congress to pass liberal agenda items to use against those same low-information senior members!

Then they turn around peddle things like insurance, low cost everything, cell phones for which either they outright own those companies or get a huge cut!

Oh, and they are also a 501c3 non-profit liberal organization, just like those conservative ones that Lois Lerner put the screws to, by the way!

Another TV personality who disappointed me. John Walsh has done a lot of good with his TV program. I wish he would keep his political opinions to himself.

“The NRA solution to arm every grammar school 80-year-old teacher with a gun is absolutely ludicrous.”

Really? Cuz, when I was in the 9th grade 35 years ago, that’s exactly what they did, at Stockton High.

There was a police station on campus, near the cafeteria and the grounds were patrolled.

Whatever it takes.

Why don’t you give you up your guns first Johnny?

Your show is stupid, the executives are stupider for doubling down on a losing subject....for losers, which you clearly demonstrate you are...

No, Walsh, we have a serious problem with gangs and inner city blacks and illegals in this country.

Go away....you made enough money from your long ago tragedy.

Of course if a Republican said this, the media would be mocking them about the 80 year old grammar school teacher line. Fact checks and everything to ridicule.
