Skip to comments.I'm with Piers Morgan on US gun control (Another Brit sounds off on US Constitution)
Posted on 12/29/2012 12:52:53 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Morgan has enraged US extremists with his calls for gun control but their defence of the right to bear arms in the face of senseless slaughter is abhorrent.
You'd imagine Americans already had plenty of reasons to take against Piers Morgan. But it wasn't until he tackled the second amendment that matters got tricky for him. A petition is demanding Morgan be deported because he had the temerity to suggest, in the wake of the Newtown mass child murders, that the US could use a little gun control.
It's hard to resist cheap jokes about Morgan. Indeed, many in Britain have said they don't want him back. But it's the people who brush aside any degree of senseless slaughter in defence of their right to bear arms that are the joke...

So much for saving their butts from tyranny.....twice
Brits truly don’t get the second amendment. I’ve tried. They can’t wrap their heads around it. There is a fear there that’s frankly unmerited.
The Guardian is a lefty paper.
Don’t take it too seriously, it punches with the weight of a drunk Duck.
Imagine if one of us had an opinion on their miserable little island and their laws.Many British suffer from a superiority complex which comes from being royal subjects. They feel that by extension from the British crown, that their opinions and viewpoints are above all others.
So much for saving their butts from tyranny.....twiceYou won't get much gratitude. The common perception there is that America joined in the war late... twice.
They are hoplophobic, that is the term you are looking for.
BAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!HAAAAA! Oh thats some beautiful irony! Seriously, her posts should come with a fatuity warning.
Just like merry old England?
Why the heck do you think we fought and won two wars against you? So we WOULDN'T be like merry old England!
Yeah. We gathered thousands of personal firearms and sent them over to help in the Home Defence. Finally, they collected these firearms back from the citizenry and crushed them to obliteration in grateful appreciation to our gesture.
Thank you, John Bull(s**t).
(Been there, saw them, believe it --)
The Brits already lost their country and what tiny freedom they had, to sharia law and Islamist hegemony.
The USA is merely threatened once again by old fashioned nationalist socialist totalitarians and communist Marxists bankrupting the country, ruining the economy, and attempting to destroy our bill of rights. We citizens have the means to recover, theirs don’t.
How soon they forget.
I don’t care who you’re with, Debby, it’s not your Constitution.
“Morgan has enraged US extremists with his calls for gun control but their defence of the right to bear arms in the face of senseless slaughter is abhorrent”
Proving, yet again, the Brits just don’t get it.
As Barry Goldwater quoted in his 1964 Acceptance speech:
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice; moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue. Cicero
The last time the Brits came for our guns, it didn’t turn out so well for them. Piers, how about we hold a debate on Lexington Green with a follow-up presser at Concord Bridge? I’m free on April 19th, how about you?
This seriously has to be one of the worst informed pieces of “journalism” ever to come to print. Every point she tries to make she’s just 100% wrong on. She’s assembled a straw man to argue against that’s just a flat out bale of hay.
What an idiot.
The violent crime rate in Britain is FOUR TIMES that of the US. Ain’t gun control great?
WTF is Deborah Orr and why should I be concerned about her opinion on the US Constitution?
(Morgan has enraged US extremists with his calls for gun control)
Incorrect. That sorry sack of crap has enraged American Citizens with his loud mouth arrogant hatred of our Constitutional Rights.
I am a former Police Officer, Veteran, a Christian and have never been arrested for anything in my life. I pay my taxes and support several charities. As an American I strongly support the US Constitution.
But I guess that makes me an extremists to you!
