Piers Morgan Calls Pro-Gun
Advocate ´Unbelievably Stupid,´
´Dangerous´: ´You Shame Your Country´

NewsBusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 12/19/2012 1:54:29 PM

CNN´s Piers Morgan has been on a rabid anti-gun rant since July´s Aurora, Colorado, shootings that has gotten even more venomous after Friday´s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. On Tuesday, he rudely and disgracefully tore into guest Larry Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, calling him "an unbelievably stupid man" who´s "dangerous," concluding the interview by saying, "You shame your country" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Comments:
Piers Morgan is an unbelievably stupid man who should go back to England, if they´ll have him, since he finds Americans so disgusting.

Pro Illegal Immigration Advocates are ´Unbelievable Stupid,´ ´Dangerous´: ´They Shame Their Country.´

Since illegals kill 3500 Americans each year by driving drunk. And, they kill another 3,000 to 4,000 each year in flat out homicides.

The big difference between Americans and those of Piers Morgan, we are a reasonbly free people, they are now and have always been "subjects". Never personally watch CNN and for this very reason.

Agreed, Morgan is a pompous jackass and a man of shallow morality. Nevertheless Pratt´s selt-defense argument is beyond stupid. Why is it not as self-evident as
2+2=4; that weaponry designed solely for military use should never be avaiable to the civilian population?????????????

#4 I suggest you educate yourself about the meaning behind our 2nd amendment rights, and why weaponry designed solely for military purposes is essential for citizens to keep and bear, and must remain readily available to the citizens of the USA.

Geez #4, really? Muskets were designed solely for military use. The 03´ Springfield, Enfield rifle, M1 Garand, and yes the AR-15 were all designed for military use. Oh, so was the Jeep.

Read a bit of firearm history, almost all firearms derive some sort of design, function, or asthetics from the military.

A AR-15, (5.56 or .223) platform is demonized by a rabid media and anti-gun agenda because of how it looks. If I had to pick a rifle to survive with, it def wouldn´t be that. Probably a lever action 30/30, or perhaps a carbine in 45/70.

#5. W/respect to the 2nd Amendment, it is 221 years old; ratified when rapid fire amounted to 3 shots per minute of rifle fire accurate up to 50 meters by trained infantry. Suggest you acquaint yourself w/the reality that modern weaponry is much more efficient. Most importantly, virtually the entire colonial population were hunters of necessity. The obtuse gun fanatics will be the death of the 2nd Amendment.

#4, You sound like piers. EVERYONE, has to like what you like and ALL OTHERS have to kiss up, give up their rights as an American just so you can say you are better. A lot of hunters use AR-15s because they can afford them and they are accurate. Not all hunters or people interested in their own lives can afford a two or three thousand rifle or hand gun.

And all those other pesky, dusty old words are hard to understand, let alone apply to todays modern life. States rights? Pshhh, we are a global community now, delete it, and on and on.

#4/14, you really do need to educate yourself about the purpose of the 2nd amendment. It is a last resort to protect the People from a tyrannical and abusive government. What you propose is to virtually hogtie the populace and place them into an immediate inferior role in the event of any confrontation with said tyrannical government. Personally, I think that I should be able to acquire any weapon available to the military. After all, we paid for all their toys anyway.

I postulated the SCOTUS decision in favor of gun ownership for personal protection to a raging liberal I know and her response was, "Well the SCOTUS is made up of a bunch of radical right-wingers."

"Yeah, like Jefferson, Washington, FRanklin and thousands who fought to throw off the chains of Britain and establish our Constitution? Now, give me some facts to support your view that guns in the hands of responsible citizens increases gun violence. Show me the stats that the ban on "assault weapons" reduced crime by, uh... How much?"

Waiting, waiting, waiting!!!

Common answers to facts: "That´s a lie." "Where´d you get those facts?" "That´s what a bunch of radical gun nuts always say."

Still waiting!

It is ironic, but it never fails: the malice and moral vanity of Leftists propels them a giant step in the direction of the violence they profess to abhor. Leftists hate their political opponents with a virulence that is not easily matched by most conservatives. This is because Leftists think they know everything, that they are never wrong, that they are totally disinterested and that their only goal is the betterment of humanity. This is a potentially lethal combination, as we have seen in nations where extreme Leftists, Communists, etc. acquire absolute power. They invariably use such power to suppress, silence, imprison and, all too often, murder their political opponents.

When one believes oneself to be on the side of the angels, when he mistakes his personal beliefs for incontrovertible, sacred and necessary Truth, the category of political disagreement is abolished and replaced by those of evil, stupidity, or insanity.

Dogmatic Leftism is definitely on the rise. It is one thing to hold strong beliefs and to argue passionately for them; it is quite another to insist that no other opinion could possibly be valid or ethical. The tragic thing is that it is our intelligentsia who have succumbed to their partisan hatreds to the extent that their reason have gone to sleep and become merely a tool for exerting power over others. This has happened before. It is a bad sign when the intellectual class, the academics and the guardians of critical reason and history become submerged in their ideology.

The news anchor´s verbally abusing someone whose only offense is to disagree with him about gun control is a reflection of the increasing dogmatism and malice of the Left.

The fool on here commenting on how I, and my fellow citizens, shouldn´t have access to military-quality weapons should understand the true purpose of the 2nd Amendent. It has very little, to nothing to do with hunting or sport shooting, and everything to do with keeping a tyrannical government in check (with an ancillary benefit of self-defense). I would suggest that if you find AR type weaponry so scary, just don´t look at them.

Because we (those living in the colonies) had firearms and knew how to use them, we kicked the collective behind of the British in the 18th century. Yes Piers Morgan, we kicked your ancestors´ rear end. So we are not surrendering our guns, and we will not be like your pitiful self. You English serf!

Piers is Irish, not English (though you wouldn´t know from the accent) and the 2nd amendment was made so that the citizens could have access to the same weapons the government had. Just because the Constitution was made during the time of muskets doesn´t mean the need still isn´t there, after all, the government no longer uses muskets now do they?

By poster #4/14´s "logic", the First Ammendment should not apply to the telephone, movies, radio, television, the internet, or any modern communication technologies. After all such technologies were never dreamed of when the Constitution was written and the have vastly increased our capacity to communicate versus the technologies of the 1780´s, Far more so than the capabilities of modern guns have improved relative to those of the same era.

The talk never changes. We denizens of Lucianne offer logic ,reason and (usually ) civil discourse which goes ignored. The other side pounds their manicured fists and shout slogans borrowed from Hitler and Stalin. I ´ve thought it through and I can´t help but think this is going to end in one of two ways badly or really badly i.e. either a civil divorce or a Civil War. I don´t have much faith in the first option happening (sigh).

Predictibly, abuse is the first and last retort of the vincibly ignorant. As I said, the gun nuts will be the death of the 2nd Amendment. Hey let´s allow the populace to purchase mortars, missles, tanks etc. That´ll surely make us feel safer knowing that Harry down the street has an arsenal.

#4/14... so by your argument, the entirety of the Constitution, since it is an old document, has somehow been made obsolete by age and needs to be updated for the "modern world." You do realize THAT is exactly what you are saying, don´t you? Let us see how that works on all the other amendments as well, shall we? Your kind of shortsighted thinking is the same as that of the "living document" people that would happily rob us of every right we have been guarantee by our old Constitution in the name of progress and modern thinking. It is not an idea that has any place in an honest discussion amongst free people. Stop reasoning with your emotions and start reasoning with the brain the Founder´s intended you to use as an American.

Unbelievably stupid is ignoring the factual data that has been out there long before this tragic failure of the US mental health system. How willful does someone like the smug simpleton, Morgan, have to be in order to avoid looking at areas with shall issue laws vs Chicago or NYC? Dangerous is a pontificating dope who pretends that the gun policies of Vermont don´t exist next to NY. How dumb does a person have to be in order to not comprehend the differences and the causes of murder in a state where you need an exhaustive months long, judge approved, check vs a state where none of that is applied? The answer is, as dumb as the punk Morgan. On the other hand if you dance with this snake, you should be ready to dance.

Why do they allow an Englishman to appear on USA television to tell US citizens how the USA should operate. I thought the Continental Army fought a revolutionary war, and the US Armed Forces fought a second war against England about 30 years later to keep that from happening?

#34. Listen up Hen. If you had read my intial post rather than reacted viscerally to it, you might have grasped that my time line was to give historical context to the Amendment, not to malign it as out of date. So spare me your sanctimony. No doubt we´ll soon be told that the 2nd Amendment is actually the 2nd Commandment and God´s Will. All the zealots are doing is marginalizing themselves and setting themselves up for a defeat w/their absurdities. So be it.

#49... then what amount of abdication of freedom will soothe your conscience? What amount of compromise and reaching across the aisle and capitulation to the emotion ridden, illogical left will make you comfy? I, for one, am curious to see how far you and Morgan and others like you think we should kowtow, bow, grovel, and scrape the ground before Obama to be able to exercise our rights.

No compromise we make, no freedom we willingly hand over, no capitulation in spite of facts that support our side, no amount of grovelling and kissing of their feet will ever satisfy the leftist ideologues. They will not rest until all guns are taken and all freedom suspended in favor of the "will of the people." Why should we make this task easier for them? Why should we hand over ground to them without a fight? To win brownie points with the very forces that seek our destruction?


The stark and blinding reality to all who have eyes to see is these leftist ideologues whose self appointed righteousness never sleeps wish to strip us of our 2nd Amendment rights thus freeing them to strip us of all our other rights. It is the way of dictators, emperors, and thugs throughout history. Failure to recognize this immutable fact is a shortcoming indeed.

As it is, I have said my peace.

I´m pretty sick of gun haters and clueless hunters crying about ´military´ weapons. At the distances involved, a pump shotgun is much more deadly. First, it won´t jam. Second, it sends out nine 00 buck shot per trigger pull. Each shot is almost double the size of the .223 from a civilian AR. ALL the ´common sense´ talking points are about CONTROL. This debate stopped being about weapons when they made full auto machine guns a special class along with sawed off shotguns. If ONE self appointed ´expert´ could tell you the difference between a ´trench´ shotgun and sawed off shotgun, I´d be amazed. If guns are the problem, ban them all and expect the failure of Chicago to spread nation wide. If you really think you are on to something with the ´assault´ gun ban, explain why shall carry laws DECREASE crime and why Chicago is a murder capital. The gun control nuts can´t refute any of it, but they double down every time. They must not know any single women or urban students or people who dare to criticize unions.

Incrementalism is central to the democrat game plan for their ultimate dream to disarm America. Any conservative who cites legitimate concerns about incremental confiscation of rights is dismissed with cliches, such as, "oh that´s a slippery slope arguement. No one favors any threat to the Americans right to own firearms." An "assault" weapons ban is just "common sense." When the next nut sneaks 4 semi auto sidearms with 7 capacity magazines into a school or theater and commits mass murder, liberal democrats like john lewis, schumer and carolyn mccarthy (sp?) will say "why do we need weapons with such large magazines" and seek further restrictions. Shotguns with large magazines are also on the list. After all, large magazines are not needed for hunting, right? Let´s make people show identification when they buy ammunition in the name of tracking potential threats. That doesn´t impose on Second Amendment rights, right? Ban lead ammunition in the name of environmentalism. Place heavy taxes on ammunition to be used to fund schools. Who can argue against funding for the children?

Liberal democrats won´t ever stop. They like terrorist are patient and relentless. Democrats are predictable. They shouldn´t be so predictable.

Obama to Call for
Suspension of Russia From G-8

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Advertising executives didn’t need a scientific study to surmise what would draw young adults to ads that encourage people to buy health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.They went with skin – lots of it. “He may not be naked. He could be wearing a Speedo,” Wendy Wolf said with a laugh, referring to an ad showing a young man who is otherwise unclothed but covered by a strategically placed laptop computer. “Dude, it’s time to get covered,” proclaims the ad for www.enroll207.com that ran this week in the Portland Phoenix alternative newspaper.

Fail to Pay First Premium

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement
Takes Hold in Some States

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize. So much so, he seems willing to continually force the state of Israel into untenable positions that put its security at risk. On this very topic last month, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon said Kerry "came here very determined and operates based upon an unfathomable obsession and Messianic feeling . . . "Throughout the recent months, there is no negotiation between us and the Palestinians, but rather between us and the Americans. The only thing that can ´save´ us is that John Kerry will

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism. His department and the president´s new consumer credit watchdog agency, CFPB, have announced a new settlement with Ally Bank for nearly $100 million. It´s the largest fair lending deal against the auto industry and the third-largest ever to resolve charges of lending discrimination. Throw in four new mortgage-lender settlements over equally

Misregulation: The president´s new consumer credit czar is doing a victory lap in the media over new mortgage rules, which go into effect this week. He claims they´ll stop another crisis. What a screaming joke. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray chirped during an interview on the "Daily Show With Jon Stewart" that the new rules are a "big change from the status quo" and will take mortgage banking back to the days of prudent lending.

Americans who are buying insurance plans over online exchanges, under what is known as Obamacare, will have limited access to some of the nation’s leading hospitals, including two world-renowned cancer centres. Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

Konstantin Kakaes had a lot of good evidence to work with for his article debunking the promise of Amazon’s drone deliveries. The FAA doesn’t allow autonomous flight.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.

The incident happened at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs road. In the police report, Don Francis, 74 and his wife Bettye Francis, 69, say they were attacked by Joecelyn Thornton, 33, after Francis asked her to stop cursing. In the surveillance video, a woman can be seen walking over to a table and pushing Francis. His wife intervenes and that´s when Thornton allegedly attacks her, pushing her into a table and punching

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
