Project Veritas' founder, James O'Keefe, today, after investigating voter fraud in 2012, decided to investigate how gun control advocates would react if placed in the same position as many of the nation’s schools throughout the nation that are considered a “Gun Free Zone”.
Liberal journalists, politicians, and the controversial New York's Journal News reporters who posted the names and locations of legal gun owners, turn down “gun free zone” signs for their yards, or had armed security that most people do not have.
O'Keefe remarked, "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."
Organizing as Citizens Against Senseless Violence, Project Veritas' citizen journalists went door-to-door in New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. to see which outspoken champions for Gun Control would be willing to declare their own home as a "Gun Free Zone" by placing a sign on their lawn.
O'Keefe continued, "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. 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."
Project Veritas also paid a visit to Attorney General Eric Holder's home to see if the nation's top enforcer of gun restrictions would be willing to place a sign in front of his home that read, "This home is proudly gun free!"
O'Keefe concluded, "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."
While gun control advocates call for more gun control including some who advocate a full ban on any type of firearm, they ignore that gun laws have never worked, as in the city of Chicago with the tightest gun laws in the nation, proved last year.
The Paulding County Republican Examiner shared a RT News report that Chicago’s murder rate has far outpaced even other notoriously dangerous cities and will most likely be 2013’s US murder capital with 18 murders so far this year. New York City has only seen seven murders through Jan. 7, even though its population is three times as large as Chicago is while Detroit, MI, which is experiencing a 20-year murder rate high, was host to six homicides through Jan. 6, 2013.
