Piers Morgan Continues To Impress With Gun Control Ignorance

Why would anybody in America whose not in the military or police force need to ever have one of these weapons? -Piers Morgan

Alan Gottleib tries to shut him down with facts and common sense.  Piers as usual (see previous video) just talks over top and continues to ask the same question over and over and doesn’t listen to the answer.  Hilarious too how when Alan called him out on his tweet, he just got pissed off and talked to representative Dan Gross from the Brady campaign.  I’m not a fan of the Brady campaign’s motives, but that guy seemed better than a lot of their drones I’ve heard speak in the past.  He seemed the most concerned (in his response in this interview anyway) in keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, which I don’t think very many pro-gun people would have a problem with.

Piers-MorganIT’S NOT ABOUT NEED.  No one NEEDS anything but food, water, and shelter, but what kind of life would that be?  Lets just ban / restrict everything and the no one will ever die of anything but natural causes.  Even alcohol and tobacco related deaths (which are way higher than gun related deaths by the way… which also stupidly enough contain suicides in their numbers) will be eliminated entirely…  Oh except for the criminal aspect of it again, those people will continue to drink and smoke and do everything else they want to.

I pose the question again… why does this guy live in the United States, and more importantly why is their a need / want for someone like him on U.S. television?

im not sure why they got beaker’s 2nd cousin to represent the firearms community in america….

i agree…why is peirs morgan on television in america? he must have got his journalism degree from the trash can.

and yes, more people would have died if this guy didnt have a gun.

I was wondering if someone dropped that link here yet. Thanks.

Now if we can push through that CT banned ‘assault weapons’ in 1993 and the shooter killed his mother for her grandfathered rifle when he couldn’t buy one legally. The state of CT gave her express permission to the possess that AR. [liberal think] Sounds to me like the state and Federal gun laws share some culpability in her death[/liberal think]

Piers is a hack. He was neck deep in the British scandal regarding journalists hacking people’s phones. He lied his ass off to keep from being prosecuted. One article on the affair summed it up nicely:

“…He makes Bill Clinton look like the Dalai Lama. And somehow we’re all supposed to maintain the fiction that he is ethical enough to be CNN’s senior interviewer….”

Paul December 16, 2012 at 01:13 am

Piers Morgan is probably the most hideous of all the pompous nitwits on our airwaves. He acts as if our constitution means nothing and we sick, dumb gun owners must submit to a ban on “assault weapons” because black rifles offend his sensibilities. He actively refuses to learn anything about what is talking about and has never given a fair interview to anyone advocating for our rights. Thank you CNN for subjecting America to this retard, now please send him back to England where the laws suit his fancy.

farmerjoe December 16, 2012 at 01:17 am

Saddest part of it is, Morgan has been run out of every other job he’s had in his homeland. You’d think the good people at CNN would do a google search on someone before they hired them.

I’m sure CNN management would LOVE to hear some feedback on the job he’s doing


RWC December 16, 2012 at 01:24 am

Pretty easy Peirce. Go back to gun free Britain.

R December 16, 2012 at 03:17 am

I have read several times in the Sandy Hook news that the guns used were legally acquired. If true, it seems to me the guns were legally acquired by the first person who was murdered. Would it be more accurate to state that the killer murdered the legal owner (his mother), stole the firearms, and committed more murders.

ar10308 December 16, 2012 at 05:56 am

The real answer to debating these scumbags isn’t to debate them at all. It is to reframe and ridicule them for their ignorance. If you play within their frame and their rules, they win by default. We must bring them out of it.


Piers: “Why do you need one of these assault weapons?”
Answer: “Why do you need to fellate goats?”

Buck December 16, 2012 at 07:51 am

ar10308, I was about to make a similar comment. Just going on one of these shows to begin with is a losing proposal. People sure as hell don’t tune in to Piers Morgan, Bill Maher, or the Daily Show to get both sides of an argument… they’ve already made up their minds. In this case – guns are bad, period, now they want to watch their favorite liberal clown make merry and mock the opposition.

The answer, as ar10308 pointed out, is to turn the mockery back onto them by highlighting their ignorance. What gun owners really need is an advocate who can use rhetoric, come up with cruel quips and one liners on the fly, be openly hostile and funny at the same time, and show no mercy to idiots like Morgan and crew – and THEN lay down the arguments based on repeatedly observable facts.

But I’m not holding my breath.

ar10308 December 16, 2012 at 11:56 am

The answer is not some nerdy dude quoting statistics and arguing point to point. They need someone

“Hey Piers, you Limey’s are students of history, right? What started the fighting for the Revolutionary War? That’s right. You Limey motherfuckers tried to take our guns. We didn’t let it happen before and we won’t let it happen again. Go back to England you tea-sipping wanker or we’ll fight another. And we’ve won every war we’ve fought against you bastards. You’re welcome for the help with those Germans, BTW.”

Nyanman December 16, 2012 at 08:42 pm

I think we found the person for the job.

Kevin December 16, 2012 at 08:22 am

Piers, go back to the UK.

dave w December 16, 2012 at 09:18 am
Bima December 16, 2012 at 08:44 pm

+100 , was about to say the same thing..

Saxon December 16, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Nah, send Piers to Iran instead. In good old Tehran, where finally he can live in his perfect society where the only people that have guns are the oppressive government.

John Fritz December 16, 2012 at 08:34 am

The best thing to do with this asshole (Morgan) is to question his questions. His schtick is to get his interviewees to act defensively. It’s how he hides his ignorance about guns.

Chiburbian December 16, 2012 at 08:55 am

Penn Jillette said something awhile back on one of his podcasts that I think applies here. If you are on one of these shows and you look to your right and left and cannot figure out who the villain/heel is going to be, then you are the heel.

The next question is how to respond in order to deny the host the fight that he/she is so anticipating.

dave w December 16, 2012 at 09:26 am

Is anyone else concerned about assault hammers and high capacity tool belts?

Vanguard Armament December 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

I like how Piers attributes the cause to AR-15’s more than anything else. Not even guns in general, just AR-15’s specifically.

dave w December 16, 2012 at 12:03 pm

and didn’t they say yesterday there wasn’t an AR used in CT?
Although when has piers or cnn worried about facts?

dave w December 16, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I pose the question again… why does this guy live in the United States,

Because he cant get a job in the Uk anymore or would be put in jail as soon as he landed would be my guess.

Andrew B December 16, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Obviously still pissed about that whole 1776 thing.

Jon Hutto December 16, 2012 at 01:34 pm

When the founders constructed the 2nd amendment they wanted civilians to own cannon.

Bima December 16, 2012 at 08:49 pm

piers : “I don’t believe in the founding fathers..” / of course you don’t.. you’re not American.

Alan Chambers December 16, 2012 at 01:54 pm

I wonder what he’s say about this:

Someone should also tell him that Gun Control in Britain wasn’t about Crime, it was fear of revolution.

Bill December 16, 2012 at 02:27 pm

Alan Gottleib, did a pretty good job.

shockfish08 December 16, 2012 at 03:42 pm

Wow Seattle REPRESENT!!! :D But seriously, from me to you Piers….. just because it is your show doesn’t mean you get a free douchebag pass. And we havn’t had any large riots for 20 years? What about my home town of Seattle in 99 when we had anarchists fucking trash and smash up Nike Town? What about all the occupy riots in California and the east coast? In your own words sir: WAKE UP AND SMELL THE CAPPUCCINO!

dave w December 16, 2012 at 04:10 pm

I like how Seattles mayor was saying on Friday how we have to close the gun show loophole to stop this happening.
He’s a pretty good investigator if he had figured out the guns were brought at a Seattle gun show when no one else has

shockfish08 December 18, 2012 at 08:38 pm

I’m just glad we haven’t succumbed to Californitis yet.

shockfish08 December 18, 2012 at 08:41 pm

Holy shit! This dirtbag actually DEFENDED Rupert Murdoch! :O Wowww…WOWWWW!!! That and he’s been accused of phone hacking! I cannot even comprehend why CNN would ever even consider this guy, and I don’t even watch CNN!

Ray December 16, 2012 at 04:51 pm

Look in to the reason he was fired from a left wing rag called the Daily Mirror…

Wolf December 16, 2012 at 07:20 pm

He reminds me of Lewis Prothero from “V for Vendetta”. New photo tag, perhaps?

enfieldem2 December 17, 2012 at 01:15 am

It seems to me that if the english government went totally ape and started slaughtering their own citizens people like piers would be on the airwaves saying. “Calm down, don’t resist, this is merely a temporary emergency and as soon as we get rid of all the useless mouths we will see a glorious new dawn in great britan!”

People like this is why my mother and her family moved out of england. I don’t detest the English people as someone I know suggests, I detest English twats like this.

And by the way, young people getting these weapons? Would he be okay with people over the age of 60 who are psychotic having “these weapons?”

Ray December 18, 2012 at 02:16 am

And how would you propose the British Government does that? The second that they tried something like that, we’d march on Parliament and have the lot of them hanging from the lamp posts. Why do you think they’re constantly constantly trying to appease people with welfare, free healthcare, tax credits and a whole plethora of shit that would get your own version of the FSA cackling with delight and rubbing their hands together?

enfieldem2 December 18, 2012 at 11:39 am

Ever see an angry mob try to advance through machine gunfire?

shockfish08 December 18, 2012 at 08:46 pm

Speaking of English twittery, I love pointing out how in the first video he claims to know the situation in Scotland better. HA!!! An English autocrat would say that! And again, the wake up and smell the cappuccino quote…. priceless elitist douchbaggery.

Ray December 19, 2012 at 02:26 am

And where do you propose they will get those machine guns from? I don’t think for one second that the Army would defend parliament nor massacre the people of this country. The Police? They’re few in number and even fewer in weapons.

enfieldem2 December 19, 2012 at 11:53 am

First off have you ever heard of any army standing down in the face of a huge batshit crazy mob? Secondly the police in England that I have seen are incredibly well armed. I have seen pictures of bicycle cops with HK MP-7s. Six cops with heavy machineguns wouldn’t have a hard time dispersing a very large mob. Sure people would complain and whine, but there is not much the average English citizen could do in this scenario.

It’s not like this scenario would be completely unprecedented, look up the peterloo massacre. The English state has descended into chaos many times throughout history, but if people remember anything about this sort of thing all they think about is Oliver Cromwell. There is little talk about all the other uprisings.

enfieldem2 December 19, 2012 at 09:32 pm

Also, what exactly would you say about that giant operation during the olympics? There were troops everywhere! They parked their largest ship HMS Ocean right in the middle of the show!

Rodger Young December 20, 2012 at 04:31 pm

Is this the same police force that beat the shit out of a bunch of feminists back in 1910? Yeah, internal security forces are never used for internal security.

enfieldem2 December 17, 2012 at 01:21 am

Also, the reason why we have these P.O.M.S. Crowding our communications spectrum is because there are a great many people in this country who are terribly upset that George Washington and his gang of hoodlums won out in that little spat a couple hundred years ago. But they don’t have the honesty to move to or even visit Britain. If you don’t believe me look up a guy named Carroll Quigely.

Jeep December 17, 2012 at 06:35 am

I stopped at 3’47, when Piers says (and I quote word for word) : “Let me speak, it’s my show”.

The guy shouldn’t even invite anybody, and create his own channel on the net. Nobody could interrupt… and nobody but he and his mom would watch.

Cuban Pete December 17, 2012 at 07:12 pm

A non-american of questionable professional ethics is trying to impose his flawed morality upon the nation. Time to deport that dipsh1t.

matt December 17, 2012 at 09:41 pm

I’ve been trying to bait this douchebag into a discussion on Twitter so I can smash him with logic but he won’t bite…

shockfish08 December 18, 2012 at 08:50 pm

We should all just write as a collective to Jeremy Clarkson and ask him to come over here and punch this pick again!

benjie bakoy December 19, 2012 at 05:44 am

pier’s a typical british fag
