Media Research Center TV’s Dan Joseph showed up last week at a monthly protest held outside NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Va.
According to CNS News, members of the Reston-Herndon Alliance To End Gun Violence turn out on the 14th of each month to protest the NRA — a date that depicts the tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Ct.
As is his practice, Joseph allows respondents to speak their mind, and a lady told him that they were there to inform the NRA that “30,000 people die of gun violence in this country every year, and it’s their fault.”
When Joseph asked another woman if people should be able to use a firearm to defend themselves if their life is in danger, she responded, “No, only a law enforcement officer should be allowed to use weapons.”
“So, you’re in the wrong place, you’re screwed?” he asked in a follow up.
Incredibly, she responded, “Yes.”
But the quote of the day, as designated by CNS News’ Matt Vespa, came from “a rather angry protester,” who said:
“Anybody that wants to wrap themselves in the [American] flag and say, ‘Oh, Second Amendment,’ that’s baloney!”
What is not baloney, as Vespa reported, is the FBI says that even though gun ownership has been surging, firearm-related homicides are down 39 percent from 1993-2011.
