Code Pink disrupts NRA statement

| December 21, 2012 | 127 Comments

We’ve been listening all week from the Left that the NRA is cowardly because they’ve been silent since the shootings last Friday. So the NRA makes a statement today. And a Code Pink loser disrupts the statement by holding up a sign in front of Wayne LaPierre which states that “NRA Kills”. here’s a screen shot of the little douche getting hauled off;

Code Pink NRA

Suppose the NRA disrupted Joe Bite-Me’s press conference yesterday while he was discussing the impending assault weapons ban with morons like former DC Police Chief Ramsey. What would be said today. While I’m writing this, there’s another disruption at the press conference by another Code Pink dingus. (Reports are that it was Susie Benjamin, but I missed it because I was writing this)

The NRA has 8 million members who vote. It’s not just Wayne LaPierre – eight million of us. Wayne just happens to speak for us. Code Pink shoudl be outside my house protesting – I’ve been a member since 1977 before anyone tried to take my guns from me. Me and eight million other Americans are your real enemy, Code Pink.

LaPierre’s money quote – “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

ADDED: I wonder if the Secret Service leave their guns in their office when they escort the President to a “gun free zone” school. They should if “gun free zones” are as safe as we’re told.

    Be a victim, government will take care of you. Really! We promise! Look how well we did during the Rodney King riots, Katrina, Sandy, etc. You can trust us! Turn in your guns and sleep well. Code Pink will be there helping you.

  2. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    @1. What you said reminds me of the 60s bumper sticker: “Next time you need help, call a hippie.”

    Code Pink’s little show is perfect. On the one hand you have the deliberate, steady, and rational NRA statements. On the other, you have the screechy, emtional, irrational Code Pinky. Pewrfect.

  3. Just Plain Jason says:

    I think Code Pink disrupted the opening of a Vegan Deli the other day…it wasn’t vegan enough…

  4. Whitey_wingnut says:

    They had two individuals interrupt Wayne’s speech. He remained calm and collective the whole time. He hit a foul with me when he went directly towards entertainment, but brought it back together when he linked it all up that the media praises that but demonizes law abiding, gun owning citizens.

  5. Mr. Wolf, non-Esq says:

    How is it I have not seen ONE mention of arming pilots, and the hubbub that surrounded that, as an example of what we can do RIGHT?

    After 9/11, we had the huge debate on arming pilots.  Today, no one has mentioned that on either side of argument. And its a pertinent example of how this works…

    Has anyone taken an armed cockpit lately?

    Also, no one has mentioned that many many schools in CA and NY and IL all have armed guards and METAL DETECTORS to even get into the school- and that is just to prevent GANG violence.  So what is the big deal now??????

  6. H1 says:

    That is what real leadership looks like.
    With real emotional engagement.
    Called out the press, holywood, game mfgrs and the Pres.
    The budget slashing is going to leave a mark.

    Let’s see what the media does.
    Looked like a room full of basic trainees on pickup day.

  7. 68W58 says:

    Piers Morgan should invite the Code Pink douche to appear on his show for a calm, measured, rational debate.

  8. 68W58 says:

    BTW-since 9/11 was mentioned above, let’s see how long we see images from Newtown as opposed to how quickly the “disturbing” images from 9/11 disappeared from the news.

  9. Tony says:

    I saw some of Mr.La Pierre’s speech and thought he handled the protesters well. As soon as he started attacking violent video games however, I tuned out.

  10. RM3(SS) says:

    @#8, Journalism “truths”. If it bleeds, it leads, if it smells it sells and never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Don’t forget, they have advertising to sell and an agenda to push.

  11. Yat Yas 1833 says:

    Mr. Lilyea, I’m with you. code stink should be in front of my house. I’m the awful, lowlife, knuckle dragging scum that has the audacity to own FOUR, count ‘em, FOUR (4) firearms!?! my .308, a 12 gauge, a .38 and my beloved Colt 1911 A1! I’ve even had the nerve to have it in my hand while confronting a ‘crackhead’ trying to take my BBQ grill from my patio. Screw code stink with a barrel cactus in the a$$ with no KY!

  12. USMCE8Ret says:

    @5 – You’d be surprised how many commercial pilots already carry guns, though if you were to ask for #’s, that would be an “industry secret”. Pilots w/ guns, coupled with reinforced cockpit doors, are just a few mechanisms in place to increase security. I’m sure there are probably more incidents that occur on aircraft than what the media reports about, but the media doesn’t report that – lest they cause a “panic” and ruin our impression that it’s a safe way to travel.

    Pilots are safe, but what about passengers? One passenger can cause a lot of trouble. In the case of Richard Reid, (or the Underwear Bomber), I speculate that had he been successful in lighting his shoe and it went off, the plane itself could have been so compromised as to cause a catastrophic failure, and no reinforced door would have done the pilots much good.

  13. Brian says:

    Good for the protestor. I am a member of the NRA that believes in gun control. Airline travel would be safer if pilots napped, not carried guns.

  14. 68W58 says:

    “I am a member of the NRA that believes in gun control”

    Really? Me too. Sight picture, controlled breathing, trigger squeeze=gun control.

  15. Ex-PH2 says:

    There’s a news report about exploding glass bakeware, so I took a look at it. Not a joke, either. You guys should read it.

    Glass bakeware is no longer made with borosilicate, which made it extremely strong. It is now made with sodium silicate, and not tempered the same as it used to be. If it’s heated in the oven without a liquid in it, it can shatter. If it’s taken out of the oven and put on a cold surface, it can explode and throw shards of glass as far as four feet in every direction.

    I’m not going to throw out my Pyrex bakeware, but if I have to use it as a weapon, I’ll make sure that the CP people are in close vicinty when I do.

    But the looneytunes like Reid and the Shorts Bomber are reasons that I hate to fly any more.

    I think it’s a good idea to have a dialogue about these issues. Everyone deserves a chance to be heard. But these people don’t want a dialogue, because that means more than one person speaking. They want only a monologue, and only from themselves.

    Doesn’t that sound like Insipid?

  16. Whitey_wingnut says:

    @14 I have a shirt that says that. I get the weirdest looks when I wear it to the gym, on base no less.

  17. Three Edged Sword says:

    Wayne LaPierre is asking the federal government for help in preventing future massacres of children.

    But none of you preppers would be willing to pay for it with taxes.

    Outstanding.

  18. rb325th says:

    @18.. what the f are you even talking about?

  19. PintoNag says:

    @15 I have some of my mom’s pyrex, and it’s the old stuff. I won’t buy the new pyrex. While I didn’t know what was different, it’s lighter in weight and clearer…it has that greenish, coke bottle tinge to it that the old stuff doesn’t have.

    I didn’t see the news conference, I’ve only read the media reports, but I left the NRA as a member after Heston did. I don’t like LaPierre and I don’t like the current “attitude” of the NRA. Their public relations attempts after situations like Sandy Hook are atrocious, bordering on assinine. Whether we like it or not, right now every gun owner in this country has a finger pointed at them. What happens as a result of last Friday will be decided by our actions in dealing with that finger. The NRA hasn’t done us any favors today, with their “cops in every school” nonsense.

  20. Detn8r says:

    18 – I just read the transcripts of his speach. He stated that the NRA would foot the bill, too bad they are not a Government branch, Not the federal Gubmint. As of today, I am a NRA member, again!

    14 – Perfect description of gun control!

  21. Charles says:

    @18 oh I would pay for it with my taxes if, and this is such a big if, the government could say that for infinity plus a Mayan calendar that said tax was only going to pay for the arming, training and supplying of guards to schools. Instead I know exactly how the real world lives and how corrupt our government does things with regards to tax money. See SSI.

    Oh and I am not a prepper as much as some one who enjoys the art and sport of target shooting.

  22. Ex-PH2 says:

    I see the 3-sided asswipe is back.

    My wish for you, 3SA, for your birthday and for New Year’s is that a flood comes along and takes your house with it. Or a tornado visits your neighborhood and you don’t have a safe room in your house.

    If having a fully stocked pantry for winter and a generator on hand against the possibility of power outages from winter storms makes us anything at all, it’s people with a modicum of common sense.

    But you gut-griping handwringers don’t see that until the storms roll in and wipe away everything you take for granted. May you wallow in your sewer backup, dorkish.

  23. Adirondack Patriot says:

    Typical. When a liberal calls for a “national discussion”, that mean conservatives need to sit down and shut up while liberals scream at us.

    Oh, and Three Edged Sword, kindly show me the “Prevent Future Massacres of Children” box on my tax return and I will check it.

  24. UpNorth says:

    @#23. First of all, h/t to the definition of 3-Sided Asswipe. Your last paragraph left off one salient point. 3sa will be banging on the prepared neighbor’s door, demanding his “fair share” of whatever his neighbor put away for just that contingency. Hopefully, the neighbor is prepared for that.

  25. FatCircles0311 says:

    The only thing that stops bad guys with guns is good guys with guns. That could have been the whole speech. Jumping on video games I think was incorrect but the media double standard, hysteria, and flat out lies when discussing firearms was great to mention. I’ll be renewing my membership soon.

  26. fiscalnote says:

    WHO PAYS? YOU GUN NUTS? PARENTS? PROPERY TAX PAYERS? SCHOOL AGE KIDS? TEACHERS?

    Q: WHY NOT BAN GUNS THAT HAVE NO PURPOSE BEYOND HOMICIDE?
    A: FEAR, INSECURITY, IGNORANCE.

    GROW A PAIR GUYS. GUNS ARE NO SUBSTITUE FOR BALLS AND BRAINS.

  27. UpNorth says:

    @#27. Unlock the caps, it’s the equivalent of yelling. No one pays attention to whatever you might say if you yell. I’m sure the rest of the kids in the kindergarten already told you that.

  28. Ex-PH2 says:

    @25 – If the neighbor has any sense, he’ll present 3SA with the business end of a .008 shotgun loaded with buckshot or rock salt, or a properly cooked pan of hot grits.

    We didn’t get much snow in the storm last night. There is another due in a few days, coming out of the Pacific NW.

    I’m vaguely curious to know what 3-sided asswipe does to prepare for a blizzard like the February 2011 storm. There were people who were literally trapped in their cars and did not make it through that storm, up here where I live. The snow came up to the windows on their cars and no one could get to them in time.

    We may face more storms like that this time. The weather before the 2011 blizzard was a lot like this winter has been so far. And I’ve been through enough harsh winters to know that when the forecast is for bad weather, take it seriously, even if it doesn’t happen as predicted. Better safe than sorry.

    Oh, yeah, can I get a “Survived the Apocalypse” T-shirt from Ranger Up?

  29. 68W58 says:

    27-I propose a tax on use of the CAPS key.

  30. Nik says:

    @27

    Q: WHY BAN GUNS EVEN THOUGH 99.99% OF OWNERS WILL NEVER COMMIT A CRIME WITH THEM?
    A: FEAR, INSECURITY, IGNORANCE.

  31. Jonn Lilyea says:

    So, that’s the new tactic that I’ve noticed lately, the little pants wetting crowd takes to calling us cowards for owning guns. But they’re the ones who are afraid of law-abiding citizens who own guns. Go tell Obama to have Secret Service turn in their guns and stop acting like a pussy. Go tell Diane Feinstein to turn in her concealed weapon permit. Yeah, we’re not like you people, we’re not ashamed of the choices we’ve made, so you can’t shame us into turning in our guns.

  32. Geetwillickers says:

    @ 31
    Nik. You win the internet.

    Best. Post. Ever.

  33. Twist says:

    “If the neighbor has any sense, he’ll present 3SA with the business end of a .008 shotgun loaded with buckshot or rock salt, or a properly cooked pan of hot grits”

    Or throw an abnormaly large cat at them.

  34. Redacted1775 says:

    Why couldn’t Code StinkyPink stay in Pakistan? I’m certain the taliban commanders there decided NOT to keep them once they found out how fucking annoying they are.

  35. Adirondack Patriot says:

    #27: You lost me “GUN NUTS”.

  36. Susan says:

    Dear Code Pink and Those Who Would Ban Guns,

    One summer I lived on Kentucky Lake while waiting tables. I got home late at night and had to drive on desolate roads. One night, a loser followed me home. From the time the neighbor pointed his semi-automatic “assault” rifle at the guy while I dialed 911 until the time the sherrif’s dept. showed was approximately 35 minutes. The sherrif’s dept. knew that both the neighbor and I had guns pointed at the loser and was getting there as fast as they could. In rural parts of what you might call “fly-over states,” that is just a fact of life. As to the question “who needs those kinds of guns, the kinds designed to kill people” – please understand that the answer is anyone who lives in rural America and has encountered a group of Meth heads.

    S.

  37. 68W58 says:

    The grabbers have until Christmas, when people will stop paying attention to the news, to try and accomplish something. After the New Year this will be old news and all their momentum will be lost. They’re desperate…under the gun, er, so to speak.

  38. UpNorth says:

    Excellent post, Susan. The county I live in measures about 720 sq. miles, and there’s usually two deputies patrolling the entire county. There are two or three others who work only in the townships that pay extra for them. Except between 5pm and 9pm, because the country commissioners keep cutting the sheriff’s deparment budget. During that time, we might have a state police car on the road.
    This county is overrun with meth, too. The heads steal anything that isn’t fastened down, we’ve had kidnap-murders here, by the meth heads.

  39. Nik says:

    Naw, y’see, all us “GUN NUTS” need is courage. We don’t need guns. Courage will stop an attacker in their tracks. Courage would keep an attacker at bay for 35 minutes until the Sheriff can arrive. Courage. Really.

  40. Joe says:

    100,000 armed guards, 100,000 more guns at schools. As the UK Telegraph stated so well, “Such is the contagion of madness”.

  41. Ex-PH2 says:

    Twist, I think you’ve got a crush on my cat Mikey.

    @40, is that Courage the Cowardly Dog? Courage would definitely stop an attacker in his tracks. Why, he’s stopped whales all by his little self. I’ve seen him do it.

    You do understand that courage is something the timid ultra-liberals lack in spades, right?

    They think eveyrone else should have it or does have it, but they only recognise it if someone points it out to them, like videos of firemen rescuing kids from a burning building, or those miners in Copiapo, Chile who survived 2++ months in the underground and kept their spirits up while they were down there.

    Most of the time, they wouldn’t know courage if it walked up and smacked them on the behind. And oddly, they have little or none themselves.

  42. teddy996 says:

    @41- is it as mad as “gun free zones” that don’t really stop guns from getting in? As mad as an “assault weapons ban” that prevents me from bolting plastic, scary looking parts on my .22 rifle, but allows me to own a FN FS2000 and an AR15?

  43. Nik says:

    @42

    No, I think that’s Courage the Rainbow-shitting Unicorn.

    I do think it’s kind of cute how they call other people cowardly because they don’t want what the liberal agenda says is best. It’s kind of like a 3rd grader in a playground attempting to pressure someone to do something they know isn’t good for them.

    “Jump from the top of the swing-set. I dare you. What’re you, chicken?”

    It’s abundantly clear that gun owners have the courage to realize they’re responsible for their own safety, while the gun averse are afraid to take such responsibility.

  44. PintoNag says:

    Joe, I agree with you on this one. Someone on one of the blogs pointed out that Columbine had security on campus when that attack happened. I think that’s the wrong direction to go.

  45. Hondo says:

    Offer’s still open, Joey-boy. Like the UK so much better than the US? Move there and renounce your US citizenship. I’ll send you some cash to help defray the cost of one way airfare – after you’ve provided proof of renouncing your US citizenship.

    By the way: you do realize that Great Britain’s overall violent crime rate is over 4x that of the US, don’t you?

  46. Joe says:

    Hello Pinto. What La Pierre doesn’t recognize in his fanaticism is the most public schools, designed for ease of public access, have multiple, widely spaced entrances. Are we gonna put an armed guard at each one? Then we’re talking maybe 500,000 armed guards. Who was it that said, “When your in a hole, stop digging”. The NRA needs to stop digging.

  47. Joe says:

    Not going anywhere Hondo, save your breath. Love the Rockies and the American Southwest way too much, even enough to share the oxygen with a bunch of fringe characters like yourself. I’m gonna hang out and wait for you fanatics to get senile and die off.

  48. Ex-PH2 says:

    @44 – Jump from the top of the swing set — yeah, I got that challenge, that and sliding down the big (12′ at top) steel playground slide, and I did both of those successfully. Also, the high board at the swimming pool. And I was the one who was afraid of heights, too. Hmm.

    But the gun-fearers are okay with their kids playing video games loaded with violence, going to movies like – let me see, Iron Man, Batman, Transformers, etc. – loaded with violence.

    I think I’m beginning to get it. Those minds have a switch that breaks the circuit when guns are the subject, but violence itself in media like movies and games is okay so the switch keeps the current flowing. Does that sound right?

    I’m trying to remember when all this asinine dialog began and it was right around the time Dr. Spock published his first book, in which he admonished new parents to not hold their children too much, because they’d get ‘hooked’ on being held. And any peds psychologist tells you that is complete nonsense, that kids need to be held because if they aren’t, they wither emotionally.

  49. teddy996 says:

    @45- the security at Columbine got into a shootout with the shooters, delaying them until backup arrived, occupying the shooters while allowing kids to escape, and depriving them of ammunition that would’ve been spent shooting innocent kids.

    I’d wager the casualty list would be a great number higher if they hadn’t had the security.
