Progressives just ignore facts that expose their ideological idiocy. If they acknowledged them, they would have to change their basic assumptions about reality, and that is extremely hard for any adult to do.

Yes, because gun confiscation led to peace for the Soviet Union, Uganda, Cambodia, Turkey, Germany, China, and Guatemala...

Oh, no wait... it led to wholesale slaughter at the hands of their own governments.

And yet we are called "criminal" when we resist. Simply amazing.

Well, your fellow Brits went to Concord, MA in April, 1775 to do just that; didn't work out too well for them then, Piers, and it won't now either.

Some “progressive” singer had a song a few years back that kept going “maybe it’s the..., maybe it’s the...”

The payoff line? “If it were up to me...I’d take away the
guns.” Brilliant.
(Okay I looked it up; Cheryl Wheeler)

>>Some have interpreted that to mean that Cheryl is in favor of getting rid of all guns. I think it is more accurate to say that the song promotes keeping guns away from unsupervised children. My interpretation of the song is that we can debate forever over the “cause” of increased violence, but children will keep getting killed until we do something to make it harder for children to get easy access to firearms.

>>Maybe it’s the high schools, maybe it’s the teachers
Maybe it’s the tattooed children in the bleachers
Maybe it’s the Bible, maybe it’s the lack
Maybe it’s the music, maybe it’s the crack...
Maybe it’s the end, but I know one thing.
If it were up to me, I’d take away the guns.

If we could magically remove every gun in America, violent crime would continue.

If we could magically remove every violent criminal instead, violent crime would plummet.

Wonder if he’d also like to back time up to uninvent cellphones, too, since that tabloid scandal is about to take him down in the UK.

Perhaps he ought to reflect on the fact that, in both matters, guns and phones, it’s not the implement/tool at the root of any problem — it’s the humans that use them that cause the problem.

Piers Morgan’s Solution to Gun Violence: “I’d Remove Every Gun in America”

LOL! After this idjit started catching flak about banning guns, he started whining about his right to free speech.

I couldn't help myself! I twittered him and asked what he was going to be defending that free speech right WITH.... a rolled up newspaper?

Oddly enough, I never received a reply!

They convinced a weak John Adams politician to give up the Boston armory.

(Boener?)

THAT'S why they felt Concord was a cake walk.

They didn't expect fly-over country after the bluestate Bostonians

(put in present-day cantext and vernacular, of course)

He doesn't get the humor in that statement. It's laughable. It's over his head. He is not an American and does not have the mindset that we do. It's about freedom, and it is about self-protection. It's called the 2nd Amendment and it is in the Constitution for a reason. There is no way a limey is going to tell us what to do with our guns.

Go home, Piers. You'll wish you had a gun, or a boatload of them, once the muzzies take full control of Britain....which won't be very long from now the way things are going. So, go home and take care of your own problems.

"Morgan is also a former winner of The Celebrity Apprentice.[5] I"

"Morgan studied Journalism at Harlow College." - Not even able to graduate from college.

"Morgan was recruited (he says headhunted by editor Kelvin MacKenzie) to join The Sun newspaper, specifically to work on the Bizarre column." - Now THAT makes sense.

Piers is obviously a Mental Giant.

"Morgan was fired from the Mirror on 14 May 2004 after authorising the newspaper's publication of photographs allegedly showing Iraqi prisoners being abused by British Army soldiers from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment.[19] Within days the photographs were shown to be crude fakes." - Plenty of personal integrity too.

"In 2007, Morgan was filmed falling off a Segway, breaking three ribs. Simon Cowell and others made much of Morgan's previous comment in 2003, in the Daily Mail, after former U.S. President George W. Bush fell off a Segway, that "You'd have to be an idiot to fall off, wouldn't you, Mr. President?"[27][28][29]"

"In October 2003, journalist and television personality Jeremy Clarkson reportedly emptied a glass of water over Morgan during the last flight of Concorde.[57] In March 2004, at the British Press Awards, Clarkson punched Morgan three times in a clash over The Mirror's coverage of his private life, and accusations that Clarkson did not write for his column in The Sun himself.[57] Morgan reported on a rapprochement with Clarkson in the epilogue of his book, Don't You Know Who I Am?." -LOL

Final conclusion: Piers is to be ignored. (and that's just based on his Wiki c.v.)

Typical arrogant Brit lecturing us `ignorant Yanks’ just like the Redcoat general who roared “Disperse, ye rebels!” at the Lexington bridge.

That turned out just swimmingly, didn’t it, old chap?

>>That’s why he’s a SUBJECT and we’re citizens<<

Oligarchy:
a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few.

I submit, we’ve lost our citizenship and have become lorded over.

Our representatives (a few exceptions) only become humble around election time. They act as royalty rather than servants of the people.

Removing Piers Morgan? Fairly straight forward proposition.

"Progressives just ignore facts that expose their ideological idiocy. If they acknowledged them, they would have to change their basic assumptions about reality..."

Yes, but never forget that the dems are the "party of science," and conservatives are superstitious, knuckle dragging Neanderthals.

I love luring libs into that assertion, then attacking them with the stats from every serious study of the effects of firearm ownership on crime, and/or the irrefutable science that a unique organism is created at conception.

They tend to become a little less "scientific" on those points.

This arrogant, self-righteous twit, Piers Morgan is not an American citizen....I repeat, he is NOT an American citizen.

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.

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.
