Citizens Against Senseless Violence

Watch James O'Keefe explain the Project Veritas investigation posing as Citizens Against Senseless Violence.

Part 1

Politicians Refuse to Post Lawn Sign saying “HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE"

After the high impact Voter Fraud investigation released throughout 2012, Project Veritas, set its sights on top gun control advocates to see how they felt when placed in the same position as our nation's children – within a Gun Free Zone. Our nation's children spend the majority of their week within schools that are starkly emblazoned with signs that read 'Gun Free Zone.'  Project Veritas put that same concept to the test with some of America's most fervent advocates for gun control. Posing as "Citizens Against Senseless Violence," Project Veritas citizen journalists went door-to-door in New York, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. to see which outspoken champions for Gun Control would be willing to declare their own home as a "Gun Free Zone" by placing a sign on their lawn. Project Veritas journalists visited the homes of journalists working for Westchester Journal News, MSNBC, and the Star-Ledger. We also visited the home of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to see if the nation's top enforcer of gun restrictions would be willing to place a sign in front of his home that read, "This home is proudly gun free!"

Results

Nobody Placed a Sign in Front of Their House

None of the people whose doors Project Veritas journalists knocked on took the signs that said “THIS HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE.” It was amazing to see members of our media equivocate and contradict their spoken and written words when faced with the dilemma to declare their own homes as Gun Free. Surprisingly, Project Veritas found that the homes of the very New York paper that was willing to put the lives and fortunes of gun owners at risk by publishing their names and addresses, were also the most heavily armed and protected. The hypocrisy of New York’s Journal News is beyond words. Project Veritas

Part 2

Act Against Arms: Piers Morgan, Oprah, TriBeCa Films asked to ban guns from movies #ForTheChildren

Project Veritas investigators urge Piers Morgan, Oprah Winfrey's production company (Harpo), and Robert DeNiro's production company (Tribeca) to help ban all guns from past and future movies. With some disturbed murderers citing violent movies as the impetus for their crimes, would Hollywood elites agree to remove guns from their flicks #ForTheChildren? Or would money and fame supersede their malleable ideology? Project Veritas went undercover to find out who was consistent and who was a hypocrite.

Results

Neither Tribeca, Piers Morgan, Nor Harpo would sign on #ForTheChildren

Tribeca Films was not willing to ban all guns from past and future movies, and Piers Morgan would not signs the Act Against Arms petition despite having previously spoken out against gun violence. Even worse, Oprah Winfrey’s production company threatened to call security on Project Veritas journalists when they asked Harpo employees whether or not they would sign the Act Against Arms petition. Project Veritas

Part 3

In this 2016 video, Project Veritas set its sights on top gun control advocates in Congress to see how they felt when placed in the same position as those who fall victim within Gun Free Zones. The people who died in the Orlando Pulse terror attack died within a gun free zone. Project Veritas put that same concept to the test with some of America’s most fervent advocates for gun control. Posing again as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence,” Project Veritas citizen journalists went door-to-door in New York and Washington, D.C. to see which outspoken champions for Gun Control would be willing to declare their own home as a “Gun Free Zone” by placing a sign on their lawn.

Results

Exposed Hypocritical Bias of Democrats

As expected, the Democrats displayed the most hypocritical behavior when posed with a simple question: would you like to place this sign in your front yard?
None of the Staffers or Congressmen asked answered yes.
