Piers Morgan Invokes Trayvon Martin to Push Gun Control; George Zimmerman's Brother Disagrees
NewsBusters ^ | February 6. 2013 | Matt Hedro

CNN's Piers Morgan invoked the death of Trayvon Martin to support his case for gun control, but the brother of Martin's accused shooter George Zimmerman had a retort ready on Tuesday's Piers Morgan Tonight.

"You would accept, would you not, that if your brother had not gone out armed with a gun that day, Trayvon Martin would be celebrating his 18th birthday today," Morgan first pressed Zimmerman.

But Zimmerman responded with his side of the story: "You know, there's no telling what would have happened. We don't know if we would have been commemorating shortly the one-year anniversary that George was another statistic, another person killed at the hands of his attacker."

He added, "You know, you can only slam someone's head violently into the concrete so many times. You can only break someone's nose and sit on them for so long while they're screaming for help for over a minute before that person has to take some kind of action."

What was clear was that there were two sides to the debate, but the liberal CNN host was the one taking a position against his lone guest. The journalist, not a liberal guest, pushed for gun control...

You crazy pric@. Then that punk dope head would have killed Zimmerman. Morgan is insane. This punk had no business in the area anyway and he was up to no good.

I'm glad George Zimmerman was able to defend himself against a younger, stronger, and more aggressive thug. It's a shame Trayvon turned into a thug, but that's the fault of his mother for doing a lousy job raising him, his father for abandoning him, and his role models for being petty thugs.

> Last September, the DHS purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

Is this the precedent needed for redesignating an AR15 to be a “Personal Defense Weapon”?

It’s time for this little metrosexual girlyman to go home to England where he’ll be safe from guns. We Americans don’t need or want him here. He’s taking a job here away from an American and he’s wasting our air.

while they're screaming for help for over a minute

Amazing how the screaming in the background of that 911 call has been so totally ignored in the press. When this story first broke, they tried to pin it on Trayvon, saying that he was the one screaming...until these pics showed up...

Then this one which was withheld as long as they possibly could:

Did Puss Morgan leave home to avoid taxed or prosecution.

In a way, I envy libtard idiots like Piers Morgan. It must be nice to see the world the way he does. He didn’t think through the part about Da Tray Man slamming Zimmerman’s head into the concrete, and only sees a simple case of an overly enthusiastic vigilante. What a simple world it is, and how simple the solutions to its problems when you only look at the tip of the iceberg.

If George had gone out, unarmed, we would have never heard about it.

For all we know he would be a vegetable or dead.

Can’t have a guy go Gallagher on your head, using the pavement as your backdrop, before something cracks.

He can’t come back to England: he’s unemployable thanks to his acts of libel against the UK armed forces.

The only place Piers could get a job is in the petri-dish of the American Mainstream Media.

I hope you guys understand this uncomfortable fact. This nut-job got kicked out of England. He found a warm, comfortable home in America. Who’s fault is that?

Piers Morgan is not a ‘journalist’. He’s a criminal masquerading as a reporter who thinks it’s okay to hack people’s phones to get a juicy story. As for his opinions on gun control? I can only hope that some day he really, really needs a gun and pays the full consequences of not having one.

Roger that, but I could think of other words to describe my disdain for this slime sucking scum bag.

If George Zimmerman didn’t have a gun, he’d be dead now, and it would be all good. Right, Morgan?

See my tagline.

If someone was getting beaten on the street, I’d use a gun to defend them. If the someone was Piers Morgan, I’d think about it.

My prayer is that Piers Morgan will run into one of these little hoodie-bedecked Trayvons* while walking from his favorite bar to his apartment some night.

Boy, will that sissy change his tune!

* Trayvon: a fifth-generation welfare recipient crack baby.
