Media Matters Breaks Gun Laws to Protect David Brock

(THE DAILY CALLER) - A staffer at left-wing Media Matters for America committed numerous felonies in the District of Columbia and around the country by carrying a firearm to defend the organization’s founder, David Brock, The Daily Caller has learned.

According to a knowledgeable source, multiple firearms used to protect the Media Matters founder were purchased with Brock’s blessing — and apparently with the group’s money.

TheDC has previously reported that Brock’s one-time aide, Haydn Price-Morris, carried a concealed Glock handgun as he traveled with the liberal leader to public events in Washington, D.C.

But the extent of Brock’s armed activities have been largely unknown until now, even among those closest to him. An array of current and former Media Matters sources, all with intimate knowledge about the inner workings of the organization, granted extensive interviews to TheDC.

Brock, whose struggles with mental health have seen him hospitalized in the past, became increasingly concerned by late 2010 that he was being targeted by right-wing assassins.

TheDC has learned that by that time, Brock had armed his assistant — who had no permit to carry a concealed firearm — with a Glock handgun.

According to an internal email exchange obtained by TheDC, the gun was purchased with cash in Maryland, likely to diminish the chances such a purchase would appear on the tax-exempt group’s books…

    More on Davy;


    “its leader’s volatile and erratic behavior and struggles with mental illness”

    Brock couldn’t pass any background check. He should run for political office.

    Meh – these are left-wing socialists (or is that redundant?) breaking the law. Move along, nothing to see here.

    Don’t worry about him. It’s the first-graders with L-shaped pieces of paper we need to worry about.

    “Right wing assassins”.
    Along with unicorns, fairies, and trustworthy governments, only exist in liberal heads.

    Guns for me, but not for thee.

    Since they vote right, they won’t have any significant ramifications from this.
