Ben Swann is great. Just shows what a little RESEARCH can do. Morgan might want to take notes providing he really does want to learn.

I did really like the fact check by Reality Check. Ben Shapiro also put forward a great argument with this CNN liberal host. Seems that he has taken it upon himself to try to rid America of guns just like his home country. Unfortunately, if he was to go back home, he would experience much more crime than he would ever experience here.

I say, let’s send him back - He is only a small dot on CNN anyway (of course CNN is a small dot on the cable networks also). CNN loves to keep strange and a bit crazy folks on their payroll but not really sure why. They don’t really seem to be interested in making money - so they can stay in business!

Well done. Very much worth watching, and I wish both more people saw this.

You won’t convince a gun grabber with something so trivial as facts.

“Ben Swann is great. Just shows what a little RESEARCH can do. Morgan might want to take notes providing he really does want to learn.”

Too bad Alex did not do a little research before he went on the show. It would have been far more effective to counter with the statistics Ben Swann produced than to scream and yell through the interview, although I can relate to his frustration and anger at what’s happening.

All the big shot talking heads in the media should take lessons from this guy on what real journalism looks like. He exposes Piers Moron for the leftist hack he is. You hardly ever see a news story backed up by facts on the mainstream media channels.

Another one....but not P.Morgan. Quite the opposite.

I initially meant to say above that I wished both Piers Morgan and the people who follow his show would see this, but thought it highly unlikely they ever would, because if they were interested in facts they could have already had them. They just seem to want to see only what they already believe.

It makes you ownder where the hell the NRA is on this when they should be taking out ads that stress the actual facts so that the general public begins to becoem weducated abotu how im;portant guns really are to law abiding citizens, and how they actually thwart crime while being much safer than many common household accidents- The left bnlows a few stats abotu household accidents way out of proportion, and all of a sudden guns are evil- but they neglect to yell and scream about much more hazzardous things like swimming pool drownings etc- you don’t see the left screamign about suing swimming pool manufacturers, or match companies, or lighter companies or or or- just gun companies

the marine who owned morgan in an interview said quite correctly “There are crazy lunatics that we have to contend with’ which is spoto n- but congress and the left want to make sure that we law abiding citizens can not effectively contend with lunatics who obtain guns- The left are more concerned about ‘protectign criminal’s rights’ than they are abotu protecting or allowing law abiding citizens to protect themselves—

Piers would not have let him get facts in. Or, he would have called him names like he did with Larry Pratt.

“It makes you wonder where the hell the NRA is on this when they should be taking out ads that stress the actual facts so that the general public begins to become educated about how important guns really are to law abiding citizens.”

It sure does. Seems common sense does not apply to those on the Constitutional side of the argurment either. Controlled public conferences with these enemies of the state are pointless. In fact it just gives the opposition public ammo to use “we tried, we came to the table, but we must act for you the American people”.

[[In fact it just gives the opposition public ammo to use “we tried, we came to the table, but we must act for you the American people]]

Precisely, I always objected to politicians agreeing to meetings with the enemy, but never could put my finger on n why- you said what I felt in my gut- it just gives the enemy the ‘right’ to throw that back i our faces as they’re violating our second amendment rights- and the same with politicians going on news shows REPEATEDLY like CNN, msnbc etc- for ANY reason- these politicians do NOT help their cause one iota- they only damage the cause tremendously because they look like dots when the left hammers with questions that they know their opponents are NOT prepared for while ignoring all the evidence the GOP brings to the table in support of position-

The left keeps stating “Well when the constitution was written (not that they give a damn about the constitution EXCEPT when they think they have a ‘gotcha’ point to make) there were no bushmaster high capacity assault weapons” I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that- but the FACT is that when the constitution was written, they didn’t have revolvers, muskets, black powder guns, repeating rifles etc etc etc either- the constitution did NOT put restrictions on what guns are a right to own- it simply stated that owning GUNS was a right- period!

The left want us unarmed and defenseless against criminals with guns- however, IF EVERY family that loses a family member due to not having the right to bear arms sues here government for gross neglect and failure to protect after the ban goes through- I bet the government would be singing a much different tune then (either that or simply collecting ore taxes to cover all the lawsuits)

there was something like 5000 murders in NY last year- 1/2 of which were caused by guns- that means 2500 people were MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD WITHOUT ANY WAY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES in the gun free zone of the city- 2500 people had to beg for mercy fro their assailant because the law abiding citizens had no means to defend themselves, AND police did NOT show up in time to prevent the murders!

I keep hearing people say that they will never allow the government to confiscate their guns and leave them defenseless- however, NY is ALREADY a gun free zone where no one is allowed to carry legally (except in rare cases where permitted)

The only issue where the left ‘has a point’ is when they ask ‘where do criminals get their guns the majority of times’? And yes, they get them from law abiding citizens by stealing them a majority of the time- The right NEEDS top come up with a sound argument to defeat this statistic because it’s the one key issue that gun opponents keep falling back on- and they do correctly cite the fact that murders by guns have dropped in places where guns are banned- HOWEVER, what they leave out is the fact that violent crime then rises because criminals KNOW FOR CERTAIN that law abiding citizens will be unarmed

The right MUST formulate their talking points more soundly before attempting to take on the left who have formulated their talking points already- The right MUST STOP giving the left more ammunition to use against us by being unprepared when assaulted by the left on the issue of gun control. The left MUST BE MADE to PROVE where in the constitution it bans guns of ANY nature! The left MUST NOT be allowed to continue putting words into the mouths of the dead founders and framers of the constitution- the left does NOT speak for me, nor do they speak for the founders- yet they ARE getting away with their bullying tactics chem and time again because they know how to out-bully their opponents. The RIGHT MUST STOP the nonsense that yelling and screaming is ‘sinking to their level’ because we ARE LOSING the war on rights against the left by ‘being civil’ and by erroneously feeling that we are ‘rising above’ the fray by refusing to fight dirty like the left does-

(Spell checked- this is a rarity, so enjoy the mostly correctly spelled words in this post lo)

“I keep hearing people say that they will never allow the government to confiscate their guns and leave them defenseless- however, NY is ALREADY a gun free zone where no one is allowed to carry legally (except in rare cases where permitted).”

That is the disturbing part. It has ALREADY happened in America. We say we will NEVER give up our guns (myself included) but the fact is, if this did pass and it was against the law to own arms of any kind we will have to be committed to actually dying as a crazed (played out in the media that way) right wing gun nut. What other option would there be? You would either comply or resist which would be met with force (I don’t buy the arguement law enforcement would not participate with the thugs who illegally search cavities, pull guns on old ladies ect.) Today’s law enforcement is a completly different breed than when my Sheriff’s deputy uncle would follow you home if he knew you had too much to drink forty years ago. Many have become the enemy with the MTV liberalized mindset just waiting for a violent confrontation.

[[That is the disturbing part. It has ALREADY happened in America.]]

And it happened little by little too=- until there were no more right to posses or own a gun in the cities- Tnhe left ‘tested the watters’ with seemingly benign laws- touting them as ‘good for everyone in the long run’

As someoen said- the left is NOT itnerested in ‘debating’ the issue liek htye keep calling for- they are ONLY itnerested in convincing everyoen that doesn’t hold to hteir bleedign heart liberal ideology, that they are evil people who deserve to be scorned and shunned by society- They are ONLY itnerested in bullying the right- Biden did NOT hold a meaninful ‘debate’ with the NRA and gun owners- He went htere with hism ind already made up- The right should have REFUSED to meet with him becasue by meetign with him- they gave him and his anti-gun ideology ‘more ligitimization’ because now he gets to say “I met with gun owners and they were simply unreasonable, and woudl not compromise erven though we were fully ‘prepared to’ compromise’

I’m proud to be a conservative, but my goodness- the right, the GOP, the conservatives by and large are WAAAAAAAY too passive and perhaps don’t even know how to put hte lying left in their places and make htem look like the evil peopel that they are- instead the left paints the right as evil EVERY SINGLE TIME!

[[played out in the media that way) right wing gun nut. What other option would there be?]]

That’s just it- there is NO other choice- the media will immediately label anyone who tries to resits as terrorists- and the left in govenrment will have their terrorist scenarios all neatly written in advance to justify the gov’s unconstitutional confiscation of guns when people resist. The only way it could work is if enough peopel join together for an organized resistance effort- but that’s goign to be a very tough thing to accomplish because as you say, they will immediately be labelled a terrorist group and govenrment action will be initiated agaisnt said movement

[[Today’s law enforcement is a completly different breed than when my Sheriff’s deputy uncle would follow you home if he knew you had too much to drink forty years ago]]

Aint that hte truth- police used to understand that in places liek I live- msot peopel are financially destitute and simpyl can’t afford tickets for assinien htigns liek forgettign to wear a seatbelt (which can be an honest mistake when you’re thinking about things you have to do whiel drivign to the place you need to go etc-) Police today do NOT care that you will be finacially hurt- and htey are even unwillign to even give a few warnigns liek they used to-
