Project Veritas' founder, James O'Keefe remarked, "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."
Organizing 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.
O'Keefe continued, "It's 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, we 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."

From Project Veritas:
The fact is that the majority of our nation's children spend almost every day TRAPPED inside schools that are proudly emblazoned with signs reading "Gun Free Zone."
But when Project Veritas offered that same opportunity to some of America's most fervent advocates for gun control they REFUSED. If it's good enough for children, why isn't it good enough for them?
While the video above is entertaining, it is also very telling as to the state of hypocrisy in our media.
Some quotes from the video when homeowners were asked if they would put a sign up on their lawn that reads, "This Home Is Proudly Gun Free":
"I appreciate what you're doing but will pass on the sign."
"I agree with you but don't want the sign on my lawn."
