Hero?

Lol.

His arguments have been getting ripped apart across the country.

Alex Jones may seem like a wacko, but he had facts.

ALl Piers could do what try to make him look crazy since he can't debate against FACT.

He didn't want Morgan to spew propaganda. Especially since the UK have far more violent crime per capita than the US does. Which Piers didn't want his 6 person audience to know.

I don't watch Piers Morgan... then again I never watched Larry King either. But I did see the clip of Alex Jones screaming a lot and saying really whacked out shiat. And thanks to someone else in this thread I just learned of Jones' fetus-eating charges he levied against Bilderberg attendees. So while not exactly supporting Piers Morgan... I gotta tell ya, the other side in this one is just looking foolish.

Did he come out and say that? It wouldn't really supris eme much, but Ithought he was better at covering up his nuttery or not crossing the line where his trolling was obvious.

SithLord: Deport his ass to Syria where he can find out what needing a gun is really about.


Interestingly Syria isn't a place where there'd be any shortage of guns. Hasn't exactly helped things much. Indeed if people need to resort to guns, it's pretty well settled that things were never right in the first place on any front.

Balder333: The murder rate is 4 times higher in the USA than it is in the UK.

We also have over 5 times the people in the US that the UK has. The UK has twice as much violent crime per capita that the US.

Out of the 12,000+ murders last year in the US, roughly 8,500 were gun murders.

The top 5 guns used in those murders all have LESS than 10 round magazines.

So go ahead and ban "high capacity" (which are actually normal capacity) magazines, it will stop all the murders...

Yeah, he went all in on it. Video and everything.

I really don't get the sense that it was some form of parody.
 
2013-01-10 08:40:07 AM  
The article does make one very good point.. looking back at how impossible it has been to have any kind of compromise with Republicans, it really doesnt make any sense to even try to compromise with them at all. Might as well go ahead and ban all guns. They arent going to meet anyone half way on anything. so fark em.

We can't deport him, he has the right to be here. It's his First Amendment right.

But why would he stay? He knew what he was coming into when he came to the US. He doesn't like the right the Second Amendment guarantees.

He can willfully go back home to the UK if he wants.

I'm sure somebody will pay for his plane ticket.
 
2013-01-10 08:46:29 AM  
I'd like to point out that the UK doesn't have a gun ban, nor does Australia. Like Canada and many other countries the sale and ownership of firearms is highly regulated, licensed, and controlled. Some makes and models are specifically banned, and some classes of guns are very difficult to get the proper licenses to own. But there isn't a blanket ban.

Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault. Any crime that is meant to inflict physical harm.

The USSC has ruled on this issue. Immigrants can be reported or refused entry over their speech.

We can't deport him for his views, but I certainly wouldn't complain if we decided to extradite him for questioning on his role in the News of the World scandal (he talked about things in his book he could only have found out hacking Paul McCartney's phone, if I recall.)
 
2013-01-10 09:03:15 AM  
Sorry Piers, debating an intellectually-unarmed frothing lunatic and implying that he represents the views of majority of gun owners or gun-rights advocates is NOT very good journalism.

TIKIMAN87: The top 5 guns used in those murders all have LESS than 10 round magazines.


Genuine question here: could you point me at those stats? The FBI has a breakdown of homicide-by-weapon-type (e.g. knife, rifle, pistol, shotgun, blunt object, hands & feet, etc.) in their annual crime reports I've had some difficulty finding any sources that describe what actual types of weapons (e.g. make, model, capacity, etc.) are most commonly used in crime.

There is a major difference between being barred entry to a country and being kicked out of a country.

moanerific: Hero? Really?


I actually frown on the use of the "hero" tag frequently but in this case it applies.  He is taking an altruistic stance on a volatile issue and great personal risks (career and safety) IMHO.

If you believe his cause is righteous (as I do), he is most certainly a hero.

The head of the NRA spoke at press conference and sounding like a complete idiot detached from reality.  Piers has had numerous anti-gun control guests who spoke very intelligently on their positions even though I disagree with them.

Jones was the only guest Piers had that I would consider more idiotic than the President of the NRA itself.  Who do you consider as the best spokesman on this subject?

You didn't see Sheriff Arpaio as the closing act for Jones? He just rambled for a few minutes, stared into the camera awkwardly, and then everyone moved on.

Agreed. But it's probably worth noting that Jones' ratings are huge, so there are a lot of other frothing loonies out there who listen to him. And no, I don't buy that people are listening to him merely as entertainment, at least not in statistically significant numbers. If you listen to him, you are most likely a lunatic.

Lol, hero?
He's an intolerant, pompous douchebag is what he is.

I lost all matter of respect for the guy when he needlessly chewed into Penn Jillette about Atheism. Of course Penn doesn't need any sort of defense or empathy, as he smiled all the way through it, but that "interview" did show just how much of an ass Morgan is.

Intentional homicide rate per 100,000... How does it work?

Our 4.2 vs their 1.2....

Slept thru math didn't ya?
