Posted on 12/15/2012 11:46:39 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Michael Moore isnt the only media figurehead openly calling for stricter gun control on the social media site Twitter today.
Not only does Piers Morgan apparently want to straight up take away peoples guns, but he has a multi-step plan for exactly how America should be disarmed.
The host of CNNs Piers Morgan Tonight went on an anti-gun Tweet rant following the mass shooting in a Connecticut school that left 28 people, including 20 children, dead earlier this morning.
Only way forward for America is a national gun policy, same (much tougher) laws for everyone. No assault weapons for civilians, period, Morgan wrote, before following it up by laying out a plan to disarm the American public. Morgan called for a minimum 3 references and detailed vetting over 6-8 weeks. He also claimed that no one under 25 should have a gun, and neither should ANYONE with ANY mental health history whatsoever. Morgan finishes by stating that No American needs more than one firearm at home to protect themselves under 2nd Amendment.
(TWEETS AT LINK)
Morgans plan, while seemingly comprehensive, leaves many questions. If America were to ban guns on anyone under 25, then how would we have a military? Would we have to raise the age limit on joining the police force or becoming a soldier? Who is the person that Morgan suggests we get a reference from? Why would that make any difference? What are the guidelines for his extensive social media checks? What exactly constitutes a mental health history?
As Paul Joseph Watson reported, Morgan is seemingly ignorant of the fact that the decision to ban handguns in Britain did nothing to lower gun crime...

But screw those 2.5 million people. Having them robbed or raped or carjacked is a small price to pay to ensure that robbers and rapists and home-invaders and carjackers and mass-murderers are safe.
Ain’t gonna happen. Thats the line in the sand.
Vetting, and I am sure you want a valid ID shown?
OK you SOB, why don’t you start with the proper vetting of Barack Obama. Secondly, you people are fighting us on having illegals show voter ID, Lord only knows how many armed criminals come into this country through this porous southern border that Janet Napolitano refuses to protect.
Can you spell HYPOCRISY? A-hole.
Does that British ignoramus ever use his brain? Anyway we can get him sent back to the UK?
Correct me if I am wrong here, but wasn't the 2nd amendment put in place to protect us from our government if it became tyrannical?
Back at you Piers.
seems to me, the problem isn’t guns... but those using them for evil acts
so the amendment that should be gutted isn’t the 2nd... but the 1st
the nonstop sludge pouring from media has obviously infected the weaker minds in society
That foreign fool was pontificating about no one needing an “assault rifle,” when the rifle was locked in the shooter’s car. We should suspect all foreign media types of being unAmerican infiltrators, out to destroy our Constitution.
If the Marines have it, I should be able to have it.
Note also that the Constitution discusses Letters of Marque -- which presupposes that a private citizen may own a ship suitable to perform the duties of a US Navy warship on the high seas. Such a citizen may put his ship at the service of the government -- or perhaps use his ship to fight against the US Navy.
No, I do not expect a citizen to own an aircraft carrier -- but the point is: according to the US Constitution, a citizen could.
Oh, he’s just still pissed that we used it to whip their asses in the Revolution and the War of 1812.
Hey, Morgan, GET OVER IT!!!
Go home, freaking liberal limey.
He wants us to be like England. FTS. He can go back.
Three comments at the linked article. Truly retarded comments by gun banning morons.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
As I said on another thread, I heard Piers last night and he was out of his mind, screaming above the voices of the three men he had on with him, demanding all guns be gone from this country. He knows nothing of this country and our individual liberty freedoms. This POS needs to get out of this country and go back to freaking England.
Piers Morgan? As Useless as Tits on a Boar Hog
Connecticut and New Jersey are already stricter than that.
1) Pass a law to screw something up (in this case create “gun free zones”).
2) Wait for something bad to happen as a result of the bad law.
3) Blame other factors for the bad result; use Minitrue to full advantage on this.
4) Silence dissenting voices with lies and overwhelming propaganda force (see part 2 of #3).
5) Claim that we didn't go far enough with #1 and demand to expand the bad law that created the problem.
6) Blame Republicans for obstructing the even worse law.
7) Force the expansion of the worse law.
8) Wait for something bad to happen.
9) Repeat 2-9.
Somebody should deport him back to the UK- with a sign tied to his neck that says “Socialists Not Welcome.”
Piers is from Britain. In the past 30 years over 88 people have died in Europe from mass shootings. Britain has no “2nd Amendment”
In the entire USA only 128 people have died in the past 30 years from these mass shootings...only 115 if you deduct Ft. Hood as it was a political statement made by a muslim.
So his demonizing the 2nd Amendment is totally a liberal ploy and will no doubt give him a subject for a couple of his “shows”.
My message to Piers is, if you don’t like what we do in this country, take your pompous ass back to Britain...if they’ll have you.
Ok you british POS, who’s coming to take my weapon? You? Just Answer that? Come and Take it Bitch!
Can’t we just deport this moron as a subversive ?
STFU you effeminate British subject.
I’d like to know know why the mother didn’t have her guns locked up. How did her son get them. I’m sure he stole them. If he didn’t get them from her, he would have found some way to acquire them elsewhere. Just wondering...
Let Peers Morgan go back home to mush head land.
Socialist P. Morgan needs to go back where he came from! That’s why our ancestors left your country. Remember?? Our Constitution is what protects his ilk so he can spout his lies across our great nation and get by with it! He is disgusting.
the latest reports determine that the rifle, exclusively, was used in the slaughter....not that it matters, all the guns were stolen from a dead woman.I think that killing a woman and stealing her property is pretty much illegal now. More laws would have accomplished nothing!
You're exactly right and many people are afraid to say or admit that.
In 1929 the Soviet Union imposed gun control. From 1929 to 1953 20 million dissidents unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911 Turkey imposed gun control. From 1915 to 1917 one million five hundred thousand Armenians unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1938 Germany imposed gun control. From 1939 to 1945 13 million Jews unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1935 China imposed gun control. From 1948 to 1952 20 million dissidents unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1964 Guatemala imposed gun control. From 1964 to 1981 100 thousand Mayan Indians unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1970 Uganda imposed gun control. From 1971 to 1979 300 thousand Christians unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1956 Cambodia imposed gun control. From 1975 to 1977 one million educated Cambodians unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
56 million people unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century due to gun control.
The kid was twenty years old.
And locked-up guns are no good for self-defense.
Perhaps you should petition Ubama to require all gun owners to keep their guns in government-approved $1000 safes.
There not going to force you to keep them in a safe. My bet? There’re going to ban the manufacturer and sale of any semi’s. If you get caught outside your home with one 10 years federal.
Ubama will have to do it by executive order. It won’t get past the House.
Why not? He’s a Brit—he just doesn’t understand what its all about.
typical libtard brit twit wanker.
A populace cannot rally against a bad government without free speech, and will fail without the right to bear arms to protect free speech. - BuffaloJack
And just how many UNLOCKED guns (laying around) did this woman need to protect herself? The responsibility has to belong to the gun owner, else eventually the government is going to step in. There are so many questions, like why train a mentally disturbed person how to use weapons?
I know there is always going to be things that happen, that can’t be avoided. But it sounds like some bad decisions were made by the mother. Time will tell...
Governments have only murdered 262 million of their own citizens since 1900. Mass-shooting have killed thousands.
We need to trust the government.
I don’t want government to be the answer, just saying, they WIll use every excuse to implement gun control. Its going to happen, sigh.
This event is called an Overton Window.
The Overton window is a political theory that describes as a narrow "window" the range of ideas that the public will find acceptable, and that states that the political viability of an idea is defined primarily by this rather than by politicians' individual preferences. It is named for its originator, Joseph P. Overton, a former vice president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. At any given moment, the window includes a range of policies considered politically acceptable in the current climate of public opinion, which a politician can recommend without being considered too extreme to gain or keep public office.
Tonight, he allowed a man called Van Cleave who is of the Virginia Association of Gun Owners. Morgan cut in again and again, as he shouted down Van Cleave. I am an expatriate Englishman myself. This man was involved in the nefarious practices of the rotten newspaper industry in England. They destroyed peoples lives with their trickery and chicanery and this man, Morgan got off scot free. He was involved himself.
The man is a subversive. I live just a mile from the Upper Michigan border. Hunting is a major industry starting November. Guns proliferate. Murders by firearm are extremely rare in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I am not a gun owner myself, but I can spot the phonies a mile off.
The bottom line is that they do not give a damn except for their own agenda. Morgan does not care one whit. Phew! excuse the rant.
.....screaming above the voices of the three men he had on with him.....
Come and get them you Limey Bastard.
