Ann Coulter rails against
NRA’s Wayne LaPierre

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 12/31/2012 1:34:31 PM

On Sean Hannity’s radio show last Friday with Mark Simone filling in for Hannity, conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter expressed her dissatisfaction with National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre, particularly his “Meet the Press” appearance on NBC from a week ago. Coulter suggested LaPierre and other gun supporters should become familiar with the works of John Lott, whose 1998 book “More Guns, Less Crime” makes an argument against limiting the number of firearms.

Comments:
Yes, the NRA definitely has some public relations issues to overcome.

But it´s hard to speak on behalf of gun ownership these days without being demagogued

Wasn´t Ann telling us during the Primaries we HAD to pick Chris Christie or Mitt Second Place Romney. Her credibility is withering on the vine. The NRA is the only Conservative organization that appears to have a backbone. Thanks NRA.

Maybe some of you might read the article, but that would be to much work. She was criticizing La Pierre for not making the argument that guns decrease crime. Those of you criticizing Coulter must believe that guns cause crime.

Wayne LaPierre is sort of like Newt Gingrich in the 90s.. he is hated by the media for who he is and what he stands for.

Surprised the MSM hasn´t done a hatchet job on him yet.

The NRA is a sell out organization from time to time - supporting supposedly "pro gun" democrats to make themselves look open minded, when in fact there is no such thing as a real pro gun Democrat. Ann, for all her recent foibles, was right in this case.

Read more than the headline people, else you´ll look stupid.

It´s not the spokesman for the NRA - it´s the message the left hates. Charlton Heston was vilified and ridiculed during his tenure. The left will stone Moses or anyone daring to promote the 2nd Amendment. LaPierre might have missed a few opportunities to verbally b---h slap NBC´s new Neanderthal but, the attacks would come anyway.

#11, I am NRA member, but also member of GOA (Gun Owners of America). GOA is much better, if smaller, organiztaion. Good to support them all, but GOA is much less likely to sell out.

NRA is now almost part of DC culture in many ways.

I strongly agree with reply #1. These pudits are full of hot air. We can walk and talk without the likes of Hew, Anne, and Rush breathing down our necks. 55% of WOMAN voted for Bam, 55% of MOMS voted for Bam, 60% Catholics voted for Bam, and 70% Jews voted for Bam. Guess what groups don´t listen to Hew, Anne, and Rush???

BTW, DeMint is a great person and a great conservative. We need more ´doers´ like him and less gas from the aforementioned!

When you´re on one of TV segments,you don´t have time to explain the rise and fall of the roman empire,you have to crunch what you say to make the most impact.There´s tons of stories and examples on the positives of gun ownership but you´re swimming up stream in front of a hostile liberal format TV show.

These killers will only be stopped by concealed carry teachers/admin.

The key word is concealed.The killers won´t know who is armed.

Point of Order....

While it is true that some posters appear to comment without reading the entire article....

I, for one, make time every day to come here and read the comments generated by this most erudite community of highly committed, traditional, patriotic Americans.

The quality of prose found in this comment section often exceeds the crapolla found in the original articles. (except Mark Steyn, Dalingpole,Unsweet Ann Coulter and a few others)

Big Texas Love to Sagman,Dr.Lakerman,Teleologicus et al.

Thanks for the education.

You don´t think a liberal mom would shoot someone trying to kill their kids? You don´t think a teacher would do the same? Rather than have one or two armed guards in a school, I would think it would be better to have 10-20 teachers carrying and allow parents to carry - other than those involved in divorce.

Ann may or may not be relevant. It doesn´t matter. What does matter is that the current mainstream media needs to be put out of business. They are the greatest enemy ever faced by a free people.

Funny, since they are susposedly the first line of defense against an out of control government and instead of defending us, they work to enable that very out of control government.

How any single profession could attract so many truly dumb people is quite bewildering.

My problem with Coulter is her Monday morning quarterbacking. Perhaps she should run for head of NRA, RNC or some other group that would require her to put her where her mouth is because after backing Christie I don´t think she really stands for anything other than herself.

What´s hard to understand is that when a school shooting happens, people (school administrators) call up other people (police) to bring in guns to get the bad guy. Why not have the guns already there so less people get killed. Teachers should have the right to carry guns. They should be trained and the guns should have some sort of safety device installed so the students can´t use them. This would be cheaper than having the police stationed there. The bottom line would be fewer deaths.

#26, I read every post on this story and didn´t see one case of ´hatred or vitriol´ save your own statement which is mostly because you threw in the word ´hate.´

There is nothing wrong with a little disagreement or difference of opinion. We all can agree that the news media, liberal-progressives and the like are the real enemies of our way of life.

In an interview posted on the YouTube page owned by the filmmakers of last September’s documentary “The Muslims Are Coming” on Monday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow targeted conservative Ann Coulter and radio host and so-called evangelist Bryan Fischer. Maddow was critical of Fischer and likened him to Coulter, author of "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican," who Maddow insisted wasn’t to be taken seriously as a political player or a pundit, but instead just a comedian. “[A]nn Coulter was revealed not as a political player or even as a pundit, but essentially as a comedian,” Maddow explained.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction.

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

On Wednesday’s edition of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer faced off against left-leaning show anchor Jon Stewart on conservative ideology and the way it is presented. In this rare appearance on Stewart’s program, Krauthammer was promoting his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” and explained how in working on the book he realized when he had made the transformation from liberal to conservative. STEWART: Thirty years — do you ever look back on some of these writings and think, ‘What was I thinking?’ KRAUTHAMMER: It’s worse than that.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

On Dennis Miller’s radio show on Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said that because of American weakness in the Middle East, “the chances of an Israeli strike on Iran have risen, are probably double.” Krauthammer, author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” called the United States’ position in the region “the weakest” in memory and blamed that on President Barack Obama. “We’re the weakest we’ve been in the region in memory,” he said. “The big deal in the region was 1970, when Egypt kicked out the Soviets and aligned itself

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
