Add Rahm Emanuel to the ‘No Armed Guards in Schools’ Double Standard List


After the NRA’s reaction to all the finger pointing after the Newtown school shooting, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the following about Wayne LaPierre’s suggestion for more armed security in schools:

It’s outrageous and unsettling that the NRA would choose to address gun violence not by taking assault weapons off our streets, but by adding more guns to our schools… That is not the right answer for our society, our schools and most importantly our children.

What Rahm meant to say is that it’s not the right choice for your kids — but his kids? They, like David Gregory’s kids, deserve such protection:

Breitbart News has confirmed that The University of Chicago Laboratory School, where Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sends his children, is protected by an armed, on-duty police officer.

University of Chicago Police public information personnel informed Breitbart News that there is at least one armed officer on duty a the school everyday and has been for “several years.”

What it always boils down to is that elite liberals lives are worth protecting, and everybody else should just have to take their chances. We’ve seen hypocrisy and double standards from Emanuel in other areas as well.

And I’m sure Dianne Feinstein’s new proposed gun grab will really deter the next wannabe mass murderer. Another law to stop people who don’t obey laws? Great idea!
