Watch hypocritical anti-gun journalists squirm over ‘gun-free’ signs in their yard

Watch them . . .Slam doors, call cops when confronted by hidden camera

An undercover video investigation by Project Veritas, whose founder James O’Keefe is widely known for his devastating exposé of ACORN, found that journalists with the paper that recently exposed gun-permit holders in the New York City area are unwilling to take a dose of their own medicine and declare their homes “gun-free zones.”

Project Veritas investigators posed as members of a gun-control group asking to post anti-gun signs on lawns. The journalists included staffers of the West Nyack, N.Y.-based Journal News, which last month published the names and addresses of thousands of pistol permit holders licensed in the Westchester and Rockland counties area north of New York City.

Four times doors were closed in the faces of the Project Veritas investigators, three times the signs were rejected, twice law enforcement was called to remove them from the property and three times they found armed guards already on site.

Stops by the team included the homes of Newark Star Ledger columnist Bob Braun, Journal News publisher Janet Hasson, reporter Alex Weisler, Journal News editor Cynthia Lambert and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

O’Keefe’s crew asked journalists whether they would put a sign on their lawn that says “Citizens Against Senseless Violence. THIS HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE!”

Uniformly they were denied permission.

O’Keefe, who also previously released a video of a Democrat campaign operative plotting vote fraud, explained he wanted to see how top gun control advocates “felt when placed in the same position as our nation’s children – within a Gun Free Zone.”

“Our nation’s children spend the majority of their week within schools that are starkly emblazoned with signs that read ‘Gun Free Zone.’ Project Veritas put that same concept to the test with some of America’s most fervent advocates for gun control,” he said.

He said his team went door-to-door in New York, New Jersey and Washington to see which outspoken champions for gun control would be willing to declare their own home as a “gun free Zone.”

“It’s amazing to see members of our media equivocate and contradict their spoken and written words when faced with the dilemma to declare their own homes as gun free,” O’Keefe said. “Surprisingly, we found that the homes of the very New York paper that was willing to put the lives and fortunes of gun owners at risk by publishing their names and addresses, were also the most heavily armed and protected.

“The hypocrisy of New York’s Journal News is beyond words.”

 

O’KEEFE VISITS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES – ERIC HOLDER’S HOUSE

O’Keefe said of the visit to Holder’s home: “FBI police confronted our reporters within minutes of their knocking on the attorney general’s home. Eric Holder is safe and sound under armed protection, unlike the nation’s children.”

Among the responses they got included Braun’s comment: “I agree with you and I am on your side on this, but I’m just wondering if that’s not an invitation to somebody with a gun.”

At the home of Journal News publisher Janet Hasson, the team was told, “We can’t put it up.”

Several times the team members were told by armed security guards the property was private and they should leave.

Residents at one home that was approached explained their address had been listed wrongly as the residence of a newspaper worker.

Asking whether the team was anti-gun, the homeowner said, “I’m not,” while displayed a handgun in his waistband.

“Does that answer your question?” he asked.

O’Keefe said his probe already has gone viral because someone took a picture of a sign that was left on one lawn.

Just before the November election, a Project Veritas video sting first reported by WND prompted the resignation of Patrick Moran, the son of Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., and a criminal investigation by the Arlington County Police Department in Northern Virginia, near Washington, D.C., and the state attorney general.
