MAMARONECK, N.Y., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In January, Project Veritas revealed hypocrisy by members of the media who crusaded against legally armed citizens, but refused to advertise their own homes as "Gun-Free Zones." Now Project Veritas has dug even deeper to uncover the truth about the ability of law enforcement officers to protect the general public from attacks by violent criminals.
Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe noted, "So-called journalists like CNN's Piers Morgan have invested so much time and energy demonizing gun owners that commonsense advice about self-defense from actual law enforcement officers has been met with an almost hysterical outrage.
"These media hypocrites have never even bothered to ask about all the lives that guns can SAVE. So we did."
Project Veritas investigators spoke with police officers from North Carolina to New York who told them the unfortunate truth about the time it takes to respond to calls for help and what citizens can do until officers arrive. Here are just a few of the frank things they had to say:
"We try. We can't always get there." – Fuquay-Varina, NC
"Sometimes we can't be anywhere at all because everybody's tied up." – Durham, NC
"Lock yourself in a bedroom, start yelling and screaming." – Jersey City, NJ
"Some people have dogs." – Yonkers, NY
"Go get some bleach. Go get ammonia." - East Orange, NJ
"A rifle and shotgun is actually for luxury." – Kew Gardens, NY
"It's 2013. It's the United States of America. You lock your doors and you hope nothing happens." – Dobbs Ferry, NY
