Default Lefties like their guns too.

The recent revelation that the head of Media Matters walked the streets of Washington with a Glock-toting personal assistant acting as a bodyguard may make it a little awkward for the group the next time it seeks a donation from a gun control advocacy group.
Media Matters reportedly took more than $400,000 from the Joyce Foundation specifically earmarked to promote a $600,000 initiative on "gun and public safety issues." At the same time, Media Matters' gun-guarded boss David Brock reportedly obsessed over his own security.

"It doesn't look good," said Fraser Seitel, president of Emerald Partners Communications and a public relations expert who authored the book "Rethinking Reputation."
"But it is a gray area in terms of public relations. Since (Media Matters) is so anti-NRA, to have their members packing heat leaves them open to criticism," he said.
Brock reportedly told confidantes that he feared for his safety and needed hired guns to keep him safe. The District's gun laws are among the strictest in the nation, which raises the question of whether Brock's assistant at times was in violation of its ban on carrying a concealed weapon

Many people at high levels of the anti-gun movement, both government and private sector, utilize armed security. Hypocrisy at its best.

Of course, their explanation is that they have to protect themselves from the out of control, machine gun toting, pro-gun crowd who would harm them because of their anti-gun opinions.

Lots of gun banners have no issues with guns for THEIR protection, they are our betters (& don't you forget it). Us unwashed masses, we can't be trusted with anything as dangerous as a gun. Next thing you know, we might be questioning their authority.
Typical limo-liberal attitude. Look at any Marxist country, the ruling class is not governed by the same rules as the peasantry.

Like they said, they feel they need the protection firearms provide, but for some reason, the law abiding, working, everyday American shouldn't have that right. They consider themselves "Royalty".
