An example of the hypocrisy of the Left and the Democratic Party

"Have you ever wondered how politicians protect their families? Certainly, some pro-gun politicians own their own firearms and train to be able to defend themselves. But what about anti-gunner politicians? How do they keep those they care about safe?
Well, if you are staunch gun control activist and former Obama Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, then you send you kids to a private school with armed guards. AWR Hawkins writes,
On May 20 Breitbart News reported that Duncan suggested Americans ought to pull their kids from school until Congress passes more gun control. He said he and his family would even be willing to take part in the school boycott if it were done “at scale,” i.e., if there were broad-based participation in such a boycott.
Duncan made this suggestion in the immediate aftermath of the attack on Santa Fe High School. He did not call for armed teachers or other armed personnel in schools. Rather, he simply focused on gun control. All the while, Duncan sends his children to a school that affords them armed protection.
Jewish World Review reports that Duncan’s children “attend the exclusive, private University of Chicago Laboratory Schools in tony Hyde Park, which a Lab Schools brochure brags is ‘patrolled by the University of Chicago Police Department (UCPD) and private security.’”

The school’s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report explains that students who wish can even get a police escort when walking, stating, “University students, faculty, or staff within the UCPD service area can request an escort at any time from the UCPD if they feel uncomfortable with their surroundings. Call the UCPD and give your location, and someone will be dispatched to accompany you as you walk.”
Now, I can’t be the only one who notices the two levels of hypocrisy here. Duncan wanted to dictate to parents how their kids were educated in public schools but doesn’t send his own kids to those schools, and he wants you to give up your firearms but sends his own kids to a school where firearms are present at all times.
In other words, it’s a do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do situation. Where I come from, that’s called being a hypocrite. Unfortunately, in this way, he’s like so many other anti-gun politicians."

LOL....everything to blame but the guns, right? That's the "commonsense" GOP/NRA dictated position. It's never the guns that the GOP wants to sell to everybody, including crazy people and felons...why it's the people who want to control the guns that are the problem.

You guys are loons. Illogical, nonsensical loons. Oh, the shootings are because of violent movies...debunked. Oh the shootings are because of violent movies and TV....debunked. Oh, it's because NOT EVERYBODY CARRIES A GUN.

How fucking crazy are you dullards, anyway?

Yes it's better to blame guns rather than those using them. I blame drowning's on water, and highway deaths on cars. It's only logical?

I own several. I own 2 .22 rifles, a .270 bolt action deer rifle, and a SA 9mm pistol (banned in California and Colorado). I'm an expert shot.

I don't have a problem with sane, law abiding people owning guns. Buy yourself a dozen if you want. My problem is the incredible irresponsibility of the GOP and NRA in making the gun laws so loose that irresponsible jackasses and nuts have easy access. Then, when the inevitable happens and the nuts kill a dozen kids the GOP throws every lame excuse in the book out there. "violent movies and games" which has been debunked nearly forever, for example. The Japanese and Koreans LOVE violent movies and games even more than Americans. But hardly any murders in those countries compared to the USA...hmmmm. Whats the major difference? Oh yeah, strict gun control laws. They don't sell guns to nuts or criminals over there....

What gun law change are you in favor of? How would the law you want, have prevented the Parkland Florida shooting?

Students have gone to school with the assumption and presumption that they are in the care of the state and safe.

A politician has entered an unsafe profession and, naturally, expected protection.

I hardly think that anybody is suggesting or has suggested that people in dangerous occupations should not be able to arm themselves or have bodyguards.

Schoolteachers are not bodyguards - and should not be expected (or even trusted) to be guardians of the lifeblood of our children.

Blame the guns? Blame access to guns?

When I was a kid in school you could order a gun by mail, where’s your controls then? School shootings were unknown in those days.

Guns haven’t changed.
