The hypocrisy of the media

I know, seems like a broken record, but David Gregory was holding a 30 round AR magazine during an interview with the NRA's Wayne Lapierre.  Oops.  Possession, sale, and transfer of those magazines is illegal in Washington, DC.

Turns out that David Gregory also sends his kids to a school that employs an armed security guard.  Yet he mocked Lapierre's suggestion about security guards at schools.  For the record, I don't agree with Lapierre on this issue, I don't think there is a need for every school to have armed security, and I think there are more effective ways to protect our children, but the hypocrisy is disgusting.  All these elites that have armed bodyguards and can afford to send their children to protected schools, all the while trying to keep us from protecting ourselves or having the same protections for our children that they have for theirs.

Update: In 2000 then-President Clinton was lauded by the media for committing $60 million to expand the Justice Department's "COPS in Schools" program, one year after the Columbine shootings. Apparently it's only a good idea when a Democrat does it.
