Jan 11, 2013 Comments Off on Journalists reject personal ‘gun-free zone’ signs Spit Stixx
Excerpted from WND: Although most members of the news media publicly endorse officially designating schools, movie theaters and other venues as “gun-free zones,” you’d never know it from their private actions.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe – best known for his devastating 2009 undercover video exposé of ACORN, and many other hidden-camera scoops, including a recent video of a Democrat campaign operative plotting vote fraud – says many media members are reluctant to proclaim their support for “gun-free zones” if it gets too close to home.
The project already is viral, with thousands on a Facebook page about it, even though the video is not yet available.
O’Keefe’s crew asked journalists working for CNN, MSNBC and others whether they would put a sign in their lawn that says “Citizens Against Senseless Violence. THIS HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE!”
“No journalist wanted the sign,” he says. “Many journalists had armed guards.”
“We also showed up at Eric Holder’s house,” O’Keefe added. “Authorities came to protect him.”
“Incidentally, the sign was left on only one person’s lawn (a non-journalist we used as a decoy to legitimize across the street). … Someone driving by later took a pic. It has now gone viral on Facebook via pro-gun groups,” O’Keefe said.
