(WND) -Piers Morgan, the resident gun control advocate on CNN, protects his own personal property with signs warning that it is guarded by “Armed Response Security Systems,” according to a new investigation by self-described “guerrilla journalist” James O’Keefe.
O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, is known for his undercover video and sting operations.
He recently exposed how journalists with the newspaper that revealed the addresses of gun-permit holders in the New York City area were unwilling to take a dose of their own medicine and declare their homes “gun-free zones.”
Now O’Keefe has produced a video to expose the double standards of Hollywood celebrities and filmmakers who support President Obama’s gun control agenda.
Among those confronted with a request to sign onto an effort to remove all guns from movies was Morgan, who made a brief foray into the top-tier rankings at CNN by badgering guests over their support of gun rights.
O’Keefe’s undercover agents approached one of Morgan’s Hollywood properties and discovered a sign that said “Protected by Armed Response Security Systems.”
The agents also reached out to Morgan on a public street, asking if he would sign an “Act Against Arms” pledge to have guns edited out of past and future movies.
Morgan was willing to accept information about the campaign but would not sign on.
The gun control issue, Project Veritas said, “is being driven by a hypocritical media on the back of a national tragedy.”
O’Keefe quoted Obama’s statement that if anything that can be done to prevent the loss of even one life, the nation has an obligation to try.
O’Keefe also approached other companies, such as Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Films, and got a few signatures but mostly was rejected.
One filmmaker got irate with O’Keefe, saying, “You’re not realistically going to remove all the guns from every movie every made. … Think about what’s logically, realistically possible.”
Another responded, “All of the ‘yes we can’ and all of that s*** doesn’t mean anything, man.”
