S.E. Cupp Destroys Van Jones On Right To Have Guns in Schools

  

Two of the four co-hosts of CNN’s Crossfire, S.E. Cupp and Van Jones, exploded in a heated battle over gun violence in America and what the federal government can and should do to prevent firearm-related deaths. The debate on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper over whether teachers and administrators should have had access to guns in schools in the wake of a potential a school shooting in Georgia exploded when Cupp and Jones disagreed over the value of extended background checks.

    No guns here but a child is dead.The Teachers words did not work. http://conservativevideos.com/2013/08/beaten-to-death-in-plain-sight-8-year-old-gabriels-story/

    Vanboy is lying. Gun violence, knife/sword violence has escalated astronomically in Aussieland.

    • Sunshine Kid

      And it has escalated in the USA wherever “gun free” zones are; Chicago, New York City, Detroit – need I go on, when compared to Dallas, Fort Worth or Houston? Yes, there will always be problems with gun violence – criminals are naturally violent, and laws will NOT change a criminal’s mind. Prison and death row, on the other hand . . . .

  • Roger Duck

    If he wants us to bring Ausse laws here then I propose that we also bring the law that they told their muslum population to either assimulate or go home!!!!!

    • intheleupp

      Better yet, send him to Aussie.

  • billconner

    All I have to say if laws work why do we have prison’s?

    • MyronJPoltroonian

      ROFLMFAO! ! ! ! Pure genius, a question even “Simple[ton] Simon” could answer. (If, of course, he was an honest “Progressive”, that is.)

    • billconner

      The questions are simple the answer’s are never simple but it goes back to if laws truly work why do we have over run prisons should I ask, you can have a hundred laws and more than thousands will break them is the time worth the crime is what most crimes ask, simple truth is if you teach your kids stealing is bad then you have a better chance of them not stealing and pier pressure. The morals have decade in this country a bunch, Its all about responsibility you are responsible for your action most liberals want to put the responsibility on something instead of where it belongs on your own shoulders, you only enslave yourself by your own restrictions, Gun restriction who gains from it ? answer the criminal and Governments who want to take your right and try to eliminate your ability to fight back there are reason’s the Constitution was formed the biggest one was a tyrannical Government seeking power where there shouldn’t be and running your life and making it there’s

  • RedMeatState

    Van Jones wants to disarm all America so that he can attack and kill us without resistance in order to bring about his Bill Ayers sanctioned Communist State, then Bill Ayers can murder all us evil capitalists.

    • Johnnygard

      Any liberal reading what you said will just laugh and say you are paranoid. Those of us familiar with Ayers and Jones know it’s a scary FACT!

      • RedMeatState

        I’m not too concerned with what Liberals “think” because most of them are incapable of it. That’s why they’re liberals.

  • Macjammm

    God created just about every animal on Earth with a means of self defense.
    He also gave about half of all Humans brains enough to know they should have a means of self defense such as a knife a sward a gun. The other half he made are helpless but in there own way very dangerous liberal Democrats.

    From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia

    “… Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been [over a decade and a half] since gun owners in Australia were forced by a […] law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results […] in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent, Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent; Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)! In the state of Victoria….. [a]lone, homicides with firearms [were] up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!) While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’ You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information. The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note Americans, before it’s too late! Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in? WHY? You will need it.”

    • Sunshine Kid

      The above tallies with what the Australians that have moved to the Philippines has said, and I see them at the Fleet Reserve Association once per week (the FRA lets anyone in, as it needs to generate enough income to remain operational for the US Navy, Marines and Coast Guard retirees (and active duty, when they make a port call in Subic) to have a place to go).

    To me, a “Good Guy With A Gun” looks like Wally Cox.

    Regarding the tragic school shooting in Connecticut and others that have occurred, I have to note that southern New England (along with New York, D.C., Chicago, California, etc.) are bastions of “Progressive Gun Control”, creating, “Gun Free (or, as I call them, Victim Rich) Zones”, from which, since they haven’t worked, there will be a cry for even more of the same types of restrictions. Restrictions that failed to protect even one of the victims. To me, the solution to these school shootings is MORE Guns, not less. Before you recoil in horror that what I (or anyone else of like mind) propose is unthinkable (and in light of the nationwide average of a 20+ minute response time by the police after they are called), let me ask you one simple question: Why were the authority figures in the school all helpless and unable to defend their charges from this sudden, unpredictable, close quarters violence? (There should be more to teaching teachers than just how to be good keepers of the myriad rules and regulations imposed on them by both the government and their union.) If we can’t trust our teachers with guns, why do we trust them with our children?

    I had a grade school teacher at the A.E. Platt School, in Riverside, Rhode Island, who looked like Wally Cox (who played “Mr. Peepers” on TV in the ’50’s). One day, while we were lining up after recess, one of us noticed a bulge in his right hand jacket pocket (remember when male teachers routinely wore jackets and slacks and female teachers wore dresses?) and asked him what it was. He pulled out his snub nosed Colt Detective Special in .38 S&W Special Caliber and showed it to us. We were amazed, curious and pleased, all at the same time. Funny thing about it was, nobody felt intimidated, frightened or in danger because of that incident. In fact, we all felt safer. Nobody called the authorities, the school, nor took their children out of school because of it. He suffered no negative consequences whatsoever. Neither did we. Oh, yes, no new union employees were needed or involved, and the response time was at an absolute minimum. Of course, this was in the late, late ’40’s/early ’50’s, so I guess we’re much more violent as a society now than we used to be shortly after WW II and on into Korea. If so, why?

    • Johnnygard

      Because teachers etc. are no longer armed and the punks know they have a good chance of getting away with anything they want.
      If you don’t believe guns make people polite, go to a gun show, bump into someone, and they will say “excuse me”, even though it was your fault. Watch others, when it’s accidental, they are both apologizing.

      • Sunshine Kid

        Yeah, but bump into a punk on the street and he and his gang will be all over you. That’s not polite, and they don’t expect you to be packing a defense.

  • longduckdong2

    That wasn’t even a fair fight. S.E. Cupp was fighting with an unarmed (illiterate) man!!! One of Obama’s own.

    • Sunshine Kid

      I could not have said it better! Well done!

  • Take 2

    Van Jones is a true African too! They prefer knives spears

  • ActualConundrum

    Jones again displays how mentally inept he is.

  • wlennon

    So! Van, did those Black 15 & 16 year old boys have Permits and background checks? They go out and kill Whites because they are bored, and for the record Jones, weren’t you kicked out as an Obama Czar for being Left of Stalin? Watch out what you ask for, just may get it on someone else’s terms.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    Jones’ father was a veteran! He must be so proud.

  • Jack Parker

    Cupp absolutely destroyed Jones. But then Jones entered a battle of wits unarmed.

  • Tom

    Van Jones makes up facts – Australia did NOT see a significant drop in murders and suicides by banning guns. It had no effect on suicides and had a detrimental effect on crime. Gun crimes went on unabated, and violent crimes like home invasions actually went up.

  • Robert Huddleston

    First of all Mr. Van Jones not only are your stats absolutely out of this world, I can assure you, the Law Enforcement community IS NOT, I repeat NOT, backing expanded background checks, nor are they backing Gun Control…if you don’t believe me check out the PoliceOne.com gun control survey…also, I would remind you, this is the United States of America!! Please quit trying to encourage the other nations of he world to bring their laws over to our shores. The USA is NOT, I repeat NOT Europe, nor are we Australia, nor are we like Canada or Mexico. We are the USA, I don’t know what planet you’re from, but if you want to be like the Europeans, or the Middle Easterners or Asians, then be my guest; Leave! Then see how much you wish you had your freedom!!

    • Johnnygard

      Don’t forget that Glenn Beck exposed him as a Communist and got him bounced off the Obummer administration.

  • Mike11C

    Wow, they’re trying to make it sound like 500 rounds is a huge amount of ammo. That’s about a weekends worth of recreational shooting. What’s wrong with having 500 rounds? The real problem is that this guy was, not only mentally ill, he was a felon. A gun and 500 rounds of ammo can’t physically commit a crime without a person. Blame the person, NOT the tool they use! No one blames a car because some drunk person kills an entire family on the road. So, why do some people want to blame a gun and ammo when some mentally unstable person goes on a shooting spree? It only makes sense if you’re an idiot.

    • Johnnygard

      And what number of rounds do they want to limit us to? Can anyone name a crime in this country where one person shot more than, say 300 rounds? Imagine how excited liberals would get if he had 10,000 rounds on him. Wouldn’t that be scary, never mind the fact that no one lives long enough to shoot a tenth of that number in one crime spree?

      • Sunshine Kid

        Well, the criminals in government bought how many rounds of hollow point bullets?

        Oh, I know, I should not use the word “criminals” when speaking about our (dis)honorable political leaders, but I must, I MUST!

  • Sunshine Kid

    Looking back at Obama’s statement, “People who don’t want to tell the truth have something to hide” brings forth a statement that I think should be made toward those against voter ID: “People who don’t want voters to be verified by identification want to manipulate elections”.

    I know this is off the subject, but I think it is something for people to think about. Spread it around if you desire – especially before the next elections.

    By the way, they caught a criminal in the act of theft, but they had to let him go; all he had were next year’s filled out ballots.

  • regulus30

    van jones is a FUC666KING COMMUNIST and obama buddy; she should have cut the pric6666ks throat.

  • k

    Van Jones is a known and confirmed communist, so expect unconstitutionsl, freedom grabbing rhetoric to spew from his mouth. Personally, people like Jones, Ayers, Dorn and the other enemies of this country should be rounded up and deported somewhere their agenda is welcome. Where is McCarthy when you need him?

  • GinoV

    Van Jones another Obama puppet…….you are full of S–T

  • John Beam

    Schools used to have gun safety classes, and students brought their OWN rifles to school FOR these classes. The only reason we have a problem with violence is because our own popular culture PROMOTES it. Our films, video “games,” “music,” and reading material are saturated with violence. Killing and murder is CELEBRATED through our money-mad media, and they want to blame one of the TOOLS used to kill? If you can change the attitude towards violence, then violence will drop dramatically. Making guns harder to secure for citizens will only make responsible citizens less safe from people who’ve been sickened by our current popular culture.

    S.E. Cupp is so Effing hot!

  • monacall

    I so agree with the Australians don’t come here….not until we get this country away from this present administration…….

    Van Jones is a typical idiot like ALL liberals..
