Skip to comments.Piers Morgan: Most 'decent, civilized' Americans agree with me on gun control

CNNs Piers Morgan on Thursday said he believes most decent, civilized Americans share his view on the need for stricter gun control laws.
Morgan stopped by CBS This Morning to discuss his shows recent focus on gun control, as well as the connected petition to deport him from the country. The CNN host said the interviews hes had recently with people such as Alex Jones the gun advocate and creator of the Deport Piers Morgan petition help keep the issue from fading from the public eye as has happened after past incidents of gun violence in the United States.
Something has to give, and I think that the tipping point was Sandy Hook. And what I was determined to do, I thought, I know whats going to happen here. Therell be a week of mourning, therell be a week of talk about gun control, Morgan said.
What weve done by keeping it in the agenda weve had this week is weve made sure this hasnt gone away, and that's the crucial thing he added...

I just dont believe that the majority of decent, civilized Americans do not share my view that something has to give, he said. Well after all he does live in a fantasy world. If he wants gun control all he has to do is go home, why try and frack up our country. And by the way who gives a rats butt what Obama wants!
The Piers Morgan types are running your country.
Thanks for not caring. :)
He’s out of FReepin mind.
Riiiight. And so by definition, anyone who disagrees with him is indecent and uncivilized. Got it.
Just call me VietVet de Barbarian then.
The Founders well understood how the Brits defined “decent” and “civilized”; they meant docile and cooperative.
What would an indecent, less than civilized criminal in his OWN country know about decent, civilized people anywhere, let alone here?
This is taking hypocrisy to the outer limits.
FO you pooofter.
A** fist yourself and go home to Jolly Ole England.
You are nothing more than a boil in serious need of a lancing.
King George came for our guns some years ago and it did not end well for him.
i don’t agree with a wanker socialist from the uk who mocks my constitution, which has outlasted several governmental structures in his country, and over 20 french constitutions.
It's true -- all three Americans far enough left for this oxygen thief to consider them decent and civilized agree with him. I doubt it's more than three which is why it never seems to go anywhere electorally.
There is nothing decent or civilized about leftists
Exactly, GeronL. They won’t hesitate to fabricate, manipulate, exploit, & outright lie to get whatever they want. It could be funny (ludicrous) if it weren’t so repulsive. Some of them are delusional & weak minded, but that doesn’t make them less culpable.
The people I know who hold the opposing position against Piers Morgan are fine, upstanding, law-abiding citizens. He’s not even from this Country. Who does he think he is to judge our Constitution and our opinions?!
Piers Morgan, foreign bugger journalism at its finest...
Looks like Piers doesn't have nearly the support that he thinks he has.
Piers, like most of his comrades in the media; are merely cheap Communist thugs...how long have you been a member of the party, Comrade Morgan?
People in this country have gotten the impression that anyone with a British accent is somehow more intelligent and sophisticated than other speakers of the English language.
People like Morgan realize this and milk it for all it’s worth.
Have these people never heard of Charles Manson?
No true Scotsman....
In other words, if you don’t agree with him, you’re not decent and civilized. I don’t agree with him, and I am both civilized and decent. Ergo, his definitions of decent and civilized are logically proven to be incorrect.
I wish no harm to anyone who has no intent to harm me or other innocents. But it appears Ms Morgan intends harm to me by requiring me to disarm myself.
Get out you worthless Brit.
I guess I am not decent or civilised, I believe we should all be allowed to carry without a permit.
I believe that Brits who do not wish to recognise and respect the rights of Americans should go back to Britain, even if they don’t want him back.
SOME OBSERVATIONS REGARDING BEN SHAPIRO, PIERS MORGAN AND MORGANs PREVIOUS GUEST ALEX JONES....
Ben Shapiro, in his exchange with Piers Morgan, states correctly that the Second Amendment is written specifically for the American people to be well armed. They are to form a militia in times of crisis and will be used to protect the people of these united States. Folks this is about your property rights. It is also to have the effect of a counterweight; a deterrent to a government that becomes tyrannical.
It is not to be infringed.
Piers Morgan weaves a familiar script where he insisted on Shapiro to answer his question. If you noticed, the trap is set when Morgan doesnt allow the guest to answer. He will intentionally interrupt the guest with another question or allegation. He will continue stacking the questions and allegations.
Indeed, Piers Morgans strategy is to paint a tapestry of the guest being insensitive and absurd.
In legal circles, such tactics would be a form of leading the witness, which would not be allowed in a court of law. Granted, the Piers Morgan show is not a court of law. Nevertheless, in any public debate there are rules of engagement. Each side is allowed to respond without constant interruption. Piers Morgan has an annoying habit of not letting his guest finish his point.
Alex Jones was adept in recognizing that the Piers Morgan Show is not a stage for a fair debate. Jones did not allow Piers Morgan to weave a web of questions and allegations. Each time Alex Jones fired back with a library of published statistics and facts.
In this regard, Alex Jones took Piers Morgan to the wood shed.
Unfortunately, Jones came off as a ranting, raving loon and his insistence that the US government had something to do with the destruction of the NY twin towers did him no favors.
It is also important noting that Piers Morgan and other anti-gun pundits ask repeatedly:
Why does anyone need a military assault rifle like that of a AR-15?
How many times was this question answered by the guests in those interviews?
Ben Shapiro answered it TWICE. It is to have the effect of a counterweight; a deterrent to a government that becomes tyrannical. Our government might not be tyrannical like Stalin or the Nazis now, but there is no guarantee that it wont slowly evolve that way. THAT is why we need a means of protecting ourselves and DETERRING Tyranny.
Shapiro, being a Jew, effectively informs Piers of how his ancestors were affected in Europe under the Nazis because they had no means of protecting themselves.
Piers Morgan was given this answer and never responded to it.
example of DUer trying to rewrite history
other DUers will repeat it on other sites, the MSM is sure to mention it sooner or later and then it becomes “common wisdom”.. lol
Absolutely nothing they do surprises me. (”All of the advancements of civilization came out of Africa”) I don’t think that’s going to happen except for maybe amongst themselves. (I haven’t been to the link yet. Another FReeper referred me to a conversation they were having earlier & that branched off, so I’ve been following that. Based on that- & the opposition they’re getting from within, I imagine they’re getting pretty desperate), things are not looking good for them.
People on other not usually political forums are about as fed up as we are. It isn’t just the gun thing, it’s everything.
I’ll go see. Thanks for the link.
