Political and celebrity ghouls gin up outrage over NRA press conference

As Twitchy reported, NRA chief Wayne LaPierre’s press conference this morning had the media in fits of pearl-clutching and blind rage. But they weren’t the only ones. Political figures also got themselves worked up:

And that was mild compared to the Philly councilman’s NRA freak-out before the presser.

Domestic terrorists? Really?

The NRA presser was “appalling,” but beating up women is “embarrassing”? Nice priorities there, Congressman.

Nanny Bloomberg even found time to say a few words:

And we all know how he values common sense when it comes to public safety.

Not to be ignored, celebri-ghouls couldn’t resist having a bite at the outrage apple:


Welcome to the national conversation.

    honestly, I can’t handle much more of the left’s hatred and vileness. It is really wearing on me…

    • Joe W.

      Amen…..makes me feel dirty and in need of a shower every time I listen to or read their garbage.

    • $21367552

      So kids being killed doesn’t “wear on you” but people getting angry about it offends your delicate sensibilities? The smelling salts and fainting couch are in the corner, sweetie.

      • WisconsinPatriot

        Oh, dipstick…..daikon…whatever. Kids being killed are worth a far more thoughtful answer than the stock lefty “BANBANBANBANBAN” Just gotta BAN something cuz it makes ME feel better. It ain’t about YOU radish boy.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          How does a ban on assault rifles harm anyone?

      • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

        They died because of your stupid gun-free zones. Why do you hate children so much?

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      A person right above you just made a joke out of people being shot. And we are the ones who are vile? Really? You are advocating for an industry that’s only output is death.

      • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

        No he didn’t. Get some help. You are clearly someone who should never own a firearm, or anything sharper than a butter knife.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Really celebrutes? LaPierre’s comment about the good guy with the gun showing up to defeat the bad guy with the gun pretty much sums up what sells a majority of your violent and even no-so-violent movies and cop shows and video games so since you all doth protest this scenario so much, does this mean you no longer sanction the good guys showing up to shoot the bad guys? And so how in the world will you now end all your TV and movie scripts? Should the bad guys just get away with it? Think anybody wants to watch that? Think anybody wants to pony up a sawbuck at a movie theater to see the bad guys win in the end? Yet that’s exactly what you’re all advocating for our society and our country–leaving us defenseless against evil. And not a single one of you morons has stopped to think for a moment about the absolute head-in-the-sand ignorance you’re demanding.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      The shooting that went on while he was giving his press conference, where police officers were wounded, still happened. And people were still shot. Even though the police were there with guns. The shooter walked up and down the street shooting people. You can’t tell me no one there had a gun because the police sure did. So why did it still happen? I read here on Twitchy that if one of you gun toters were around, that shooting wouldn’t have happened. Where were you?

      • Belinda Henry

        No way now we will have to pass laws to prevent people from shooting at police officers! That works even better right?

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          I’m glad you think that people being shot is so funny.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            More sick minded BS. Get some help.

      • WisconsinPatriot

        Everything about that shooting ….wait for it….was already ILLEGAL! Laws do not stop the unhinged. I am starting to think that all of you dems are potential shooters, we should round you up, place you in “reception areas” so you can talk to the nice doctor in a year or two. Meanwhile……virtually ALL shootings come to a screeching halt. Take your meds Mike, it makes the interview go much easier.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          How does making guns even harder to get do anything detrimental to the casual hunter or even to the habitual hunter? How does it harm you? It doesn’t. There is no reason for you to fight making guns harder to get. Your opposition to it and your demonization of anyone who calls for stricter control is not only repulsive, it’s downright scary. And you are trying to say that I should be rounded up? Please.

          • MondaysChild76

            Legal guns are already hard to get. For that reason neither the shooter in Newtown or at the Oregon Mall were able to purchase one. Why not advocate for enforcement of the gun laws that we already have rather than a complete dismantling of the 2nd Amendment?

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            You wrote that I wanted to shoot people.

            Talk about repulsive. You are a sick person.

      • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

        So tell us Mike, what happened to the shooter? Is he still there, shooting people? Gosh, the death toll must be in the hundreds by now.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          Again. I was told several times that the guy would have not harmed anyone had one gun owner been around. Now the police are actually trained in firearm handling, unlike the typical gun toting, God fearing republican. And still several were wounded. All your posturing tells me is that you have the strong desire to shoot a person and you are simply trying to justify it.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            So, he wasn’t shot by police, then? AKA people with guns. Ignoring facts is like a job to you people. Your over-the-top vilification says all we need to know about you. What kind of person thinks like that? First you bizarre leftists wish everyone who believes in self defense would die, now you want to paint us as murderers. Go get some help before you hurt yourself.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            You don’t need an assault rifle to “defend yourself” and if you were any kind of man, you wouldn’t need a gun to “defend yourself’. I never have needed one. And I live in Chicago.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            So what are you going to tell young women and old people, that they have to be able to kick some thug’s ass, or just die? Because they aren’t some delusional “manly man” like you who thinks he can beat anyone, or any group?

            Nice that you not only hate children, but young women and the elderly. Oh, and men who aren’t “manly” like you.

            You’re a joke.

  • NeoKong

    Those members of Congress might have a little more credibility on the matter if they didn’t have their own armed police force protecting them.

  • riddler1620

    So I’m thinking celebrities think only they should have armed protection while the rest of us huddle in fear praying government will protect us.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      I’ll not be huddling, but prayer is always nice. The govt is proving the need for the 2nd as we watch. Who exactly should be praying? The citizens are very aware of their actions. The celebrities are just pretty,stupid faces. Let them rant.

      • Penmar

        Some of them are not so pretty anymore. Some look downright ghoulish after all that plastic surgery.

  • https://twitter.com/BlissTabitha Tabitha Bliss

    Idiot Libs,
    Learn some facts before you go unhinged ranting about your own speculations & presenting them as facts.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      You may not have noticed, but the title of that “article” that you attached is “my opinion” not “these are facts.” And while there may be facts presented in that opinion piece, to call it a “fact” is a lie.

      • https://twitter.com/BlissTabitha Tabitha Bliss

        OK I understand reading through all that stuff to get to the facts is difficult for many libs so let’s try this shall we? GunFacts.info

        • WisconsinPatriot

          You may have to dumb it down even further, is there a pre-school edition? Mike is rather dense.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            When you learn proper punctuation and grammar for your native language you can try to talk to me about how “dense” I am.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            Typical. You forgot a comma.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          I’m sorry you don’t like being called out for your own ignorance of your mother tongue. Can you tell me how a ban on assault rifles harms anyone? Did it harm anyone before? No? Then reinstalling it should be no skin of your nose. For you to defend it is disgusting.

          • MondaysChild76

            Did the previous ban on assault rifles prevent any shootings? Mother Jones lists atleast 15 mass shootings that happened during the 10 years that the ban was in effect.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            Murder rates dropped significantly right after that stupid ban ran out.

            You are disgusting.

  • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

    The BBC actually had to tell people that it wasn’t a joke. Especially amid the accounts that another shooting happened during their press conference while he blamed everything but the ability to get a gun quickly and cheaply for the gun violence.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      The leftist media is an incestuous circle of related entities. When one is offended….they all are. I am calling you a WAAAAHHHmbulance Mike.

      • rinodino

        You guys are becoming a dying breed thank goodness

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          So far, the only ones dying are the poor folks stuck in your stupid gun-free zones.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton


  • $21367552

    Wow, reporting the Iron Sheik’s tweets as attempts to have a “serious conversation” about gun control. Brilliant!

    • grais

      Whoever he is, he types like a foreigner.
      And he obviously only dislikes Gun Violence; any other kind is okay with him(whoever he is)

  • kendall

    get a life, what a bunch of losers, whatever anybody on the liberal side says this dumb ass site post and you mouth breathers respond.

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      So, by responding, you are self identifying as a “mouth breather.” Well played.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Any of these empty-headed artistic elites got an another idea? “Universal health-care” is the common response, or something along these lines. After you’re doing sighing at the idiocy, and try to ask them if they have any ideas about what would make our kids safer tomorrow, then it’s nothing but sneering. What are you even talking about Seth Myers? You’re so smart Patton Oswalt, what should have Dawn Hochsprung do to stop Adam Lanza?”Errrgh ban eeeee.”Even if they got every thing they wanted, it would take decades to implement. Yet, all they offer is sneering and demands our kids and persons should be defenseless. I’d wish tragedy find them, but like all these shootings, they wouldn’t suffer, only the undeserving would. As for the representatives of the party of (D)ecay and poverty, they can go play in traffic. The fact that you are using the deaths of 27 people to get back at the NRA for its decades of political victories over you is transparent and indicative of why it’s Dem cities where people live in fear. Special note on Chris Murphy: never anywhere without his bodyguards. Even when he was into state politics, never in public without police. He should have protection, but his 5 year old constituents should not. Absolute low-life

  • Annieg

    LaPierre’s statement nailed it…The msm vultures, vote pandering politicians and “entertainers” should really be banned from putting their foot in their mouths. Values have been systematically sucked from society in the interests of political correctness heavily promoted by the above and sadly financed by “We The People”…

  • Jay Quiring

    These socialists have no clue. I’m sure passing more laws restricting guns and creating more gun free zones will definately solve these mass murders. They haven’t figured out the people who do these things don’t care about the law, that’s why they are called “criminals.”

  • http://twitter.com/tracker570 tracker570

    I think its past time so called celebrities shut their mouth.They open their mouth like they really have something important to say same as Government just to get on TV as usual.Thats why they jump in like they really care about whats happening.And its only to get on TV,Get some attention.
    Start banning all the violent shoot em up,chain saw,killing movies coming out of Hollywood.ALL OF THEM.And watch them start screaming when they can’t have their ARMED guards.First get rid of most of the Movies coming out and see if they don’t sing a different tune
