Skip to comments.Piers Morgan’s Solution to Gun Violence: “I’d Remove Every Gun in America”
Posted on 12/09/2012 5:40:18 AM PST by marktwain
On Monday, Research Director of the Independence Institute David Kopel appeared on CNNs Piers Morgan Tonight to debate the issue of gun-related violence with Piers and Josh Horwitz from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.
In the video below, you can see the debate unfold. Whats most telling in this exchange is Morgans admission that he, personally, would like to Remove every gun in America.
Of course, what preceded this statement only seconds earlier was the perfunctory disclaimer, which is often made by those who secretly wish to pass onerous gun laws, I do have a respect for the Second Amendment.
So, obviously, theres a clear contradiction here, on one hand, Morgan (if he had his wish) would confiscate every gun in America, but on the other he claims to have respect for a law-abiding citizens Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Piers, you cant have it both ways. You clearly do not respect the Second Amendment if youre true stance is pro-confiscation.
There are two points other points to be made about this debate. The first is that the proliferation of gun ownership in America has not led to an increase in gun-related violence. Kopel pointed this out. And its true.
The most recent study to elucidate this fact, as Kopel alluded to, was the study done in Virginia that examined crime data and gun sales from 2006 to 2011 and found a negative relationship between gun sales, which increased 73 percent over those five years and gun-related violent crimes, which fell by 24 percent over the same period.
Though, because the study doesnt compute with Morgans preconceptions about guns and crime, he called it a load of absolute claptrap.

He's a British citizen....a UK passport holder.....not even a dual citizen.
So, while being paid handsomely with American dollars put in his pocket by American patrons of CNN's advertisers, he has the supreme gall to tell us how to run OUR country.
I know some freepers here still watch CNN.....Piers Morgan is just another reason why it's like high treason to one's own intellect to watch this pernicious network.
Watching just "some" of CNN is like being a little bit pregnant.
Don Corleone to Morgan, “TRY IT!”
It worked so well for the carthaginians
If I recall correctly the number one weapon in the world used to kill civilians is the Machete or a short heavy piece of sharpened metal. No long distance killing with one of those, it’s up close and personal in all it’s blood splattering glory.
My real point is this, if a human really wants to kill another human then they will find a way, be it simple as a stone or a piece of sharpened metal or as sophisticated as a guided missile and Atomic weapon.
Gun control has led to a peaceful Washington D.C, NYC, Chicago.
If memory serves, that’s been said before. Familiar with theTreaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo?
Maybe piers should be beaten with a microphone...Ban All Microphones! This piers moron is such a pinhead loser...
Arguing fact with a liberal is a waste of time. All you do is trample their “feelings” which makes them feel “bad”.
He is a naturalized American now. He said he was proud to be American, but I don't see how he can be proud to be American, if he is against one of our most important tenants of the Constitution. It does not makes sense.
YOU would remove them, eh, Piers? Who YOU gonna start with, huh?
Comical. Got some news for ya, Mr. Morgan.......there was violence and murder loooooong before any gun was ever invented.
You can start by trying to remove mine Morgan. I think that this would end your confiscation fantasy quickly.
But if Piers or any other Liberal Commie Scum, even those born in Kenya, think that American vets won't step up again to do what needs to be done and in our home country....boy you'll be decorating the live oaks of central Texas like the little Christmas tree ornaments you despise so much.
To quote a real American: Bring it on!
A sampling of violent crime rates around the world (these rates are the number of violent crimes per 100,000 population):
UK - 2,034
Austria - 1,677
South Africa - 1,609
Canada - 935
Finland - 738
France - 506
USA - 466
In 2011, the US murder rate was lower than it has been since 1963, and it appears to have dropped again this year. That’s a 50 year low, not that you’d know it from listening to Bob Costas.
And if we didn’t have to count DC, New Orleans and Detroit those numbers would look even better. Get rid of the guns? How about we get rid of the liberals?
Just a little food for thought.
“..lol. in less than 8 years you texans will be all speaking spanish in a heavy blue state...”
We already speak Spanish here in south Texas and have since the early 1800s. I wouldn’t bet on Texas going blue anytime soon. Most Hispanics here have deep family roots that go back several generations. Many of them here in south Texas are just as legal as anyone else, vote conservative, have strong family values and WORK. I work with em everyday in the oil patch. I’d rather have a 1000 of em in my crew than just one of your urban Milwaukee blacks that won’t work. They dislike illegals more so than most because it’s an unfair bad reflection on them. Sure, we have illegals coming across the border just like every other border state does but most of em are looking to move north to the welfare blue states. God Bless Texas!!!
Lol every gun, police, army...
What, are we to use harsh language?
Eventually Piers Morgan will be directly drawn in to the Daily Mirror telephone hacking scandal. When that happens it is going to leave a mark. His days on TV or anywhere else are numbered.
Piers Morgans Solution to Gun Violence: Id Remove Every Gun in AmericaMy solution to "Gun Violence": Remove every Libtard in America. Starting with sh**forbrain immigrants like Piers Morgan.
Seriously, if you don't like it in the USA Piers go back to the UK. No one is stopping you, jerkweed.
[BTW, what kind of name is Piers? Was his momma a Dock Whore and daddy a Sailor?]
