Piers Morgan Kind of Blames President Obama for D.C. Shooting
New York Magazine ^ | 9/16 | Dan Amira

Posted on 09/16/2013 4:04:14 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Remember when President Obama tried to push a gun-control package through Congress after the Newtown massacre? And Congress voted down every piece of legislation, even the extremely popular ones? And consequently the gun-control bills did not become laws, because that's how lawmaking works? It was a few months ago.

You CANNOT be as sick of them as we are of you, Mr. Morgan.

So DO something. Go home.

“I’m absolutely sick of these endless bloody shootings in America”

Well, golly-gee, Piers, it sounds like YOU, personally could end these shootings. We eagerly await your action.

What? You’re just a bloody Brit wanker with no ability to make changes other than whine about what, YOU PERSONALLY don’t like.

Get in line jack-wad! Or, simply STFU.

I am absolutely sick of Piers Morgan. Since we are sick of each other, why doesn’t he leave my country and slink back to his? He won’t be around any guns there except the ones the killers have.

Not long ago, England thought seriously about restricting kitchen knives - like you couldn’t take one out of the house. I have lived there on and off for weeks at a time for over 20 years as my son lives there.

He was here at my house not long after Sandy Hook and he said the British just don’t get it - that they want no guns to be in this country and don’t understand why we won’t give them up. He said they don’t understand America and its individual liberties and he has given up on enlightening them.

Son was also involved in his film business criticism of Piers for listening in on people illegally. He said what Piers did made them all look suspect in being honest and forthright in their films and in professional news reporting. He is a director of documentary films and his reputation for truth in filming is of vital importance to him. He hopes Piers never comes back to England.

How did Piers Morgan get a green card and be allowed to work in America? Why do we have so many liberal foreigners on American TV? They are not doing the jobs American liberals won’t do. There are plenty of liberal American talking heads who can work on TV here. Why are they displaced for the likes of Piers Morgan, Amanpour(sp?), Freed Zakaria(sp?), etc???

Here was a heart attack moment for me - Son made a documentary film that Christiane Amanpour was in. She wanted her sister to go with my son. Sister called Wayne and he said he was going with someone else. Thank God. I could not have lived through liberal Amanpour being in my family.

Strictest gun laws in the country in D.C. Piers.

Ah, like communism it won’t work unless everybody has it, right Piers? But then what about guns from Mexico or from a thousand machine shops in the U.S. Piers? Are you going to close that border? Are you going to make producing guns super double secret illegal?

And that is just the idiocy of his idea, forgetting the tyranny portion.

SampleMan got it right, my 1st reaction. Washington D.C has the strictest gun laws and it didn’t stop a mad man. More laws taking away guns won’t fix anything but give more boldness to evil men filled with hate who want to harm. Just ask the masses who live in Mexico...or any other country where only the bad guys and a few cops are armed.

The AR-15 was confirmed.
It was taken from one of the guards he shot.
The other guard got his pistol taken.

I heard one local DC reporter, on scene, say that he had heard that the shooter killed a gate guard with a shotgun. The guard’s 9mm pistol and AR-15 were both missing, as well as the magazines for each. There is also a report that he may have taken the AR-15 of the guard he shot at the entrance to the facility. The first reports I heard this morning on the local DC news was that someone was shooting people at the Navy Yard with a shotgun. Thus it may be that he began with a shotgun and then got the ‘assault rifles’ from the guards he shot. thus the government, in a sense, provided the weapons Alexis used.

This probably wouldn’t have happened if Washington D.C. had strict gun laws making it almost impossible to posess a gun in the city.

Because gun laws always work.

Thank You for that information.
I am left feeling that FNC has done a very poor job of reporting this matter today.
The are still not able to discuss the multiplicity of weapons utilized nor where they were obtained. All they have said is that “he used an AR15 and that it was capable of three round bursts, which is nonsense. No mention of the shotgun or the 9mm until just now. Either their reporters are asleep at the switch or they are wedded to the “assault weapon” mantra and the other guns just get in the way of their preconceived ideas.

Why don’t you do something honest, Piers. Get your cowardly country to drop the Obama-instigated British ban on Robert Spencer, Pam Geller and Michael Savage. These three are among today’s most valiant commentators. They are rare; they describes what’s actually happening in the world, not some kumbayah delusional version of reality. Your country, England, loves terrorists and has opened wide the English gates to them, but hates those who peacefully speak truth to power.

They will examine your eyes, how you are seeing now and also measure your eyes in different ways so you will have drops in your eyes and be measured by a machine you haven’t seen before. These measurements take time. The surgeon wants to be familiar with your eyes and with you. He will want to know what medicines you are on, especially wants to know if you are on blood pressure medicine and how long. If you are taking aspirin or other blood thinner, that has to stop several days before the surgery.

I had to go to regular doctor to have blood pressure taken, pulse rate and heart EKG - he had to give the eye surgeon a favorable report so the eyes could be done. Could be your surgeon is going to have those tests done while you are at his place.

3) Are bloody mass shooting okay elsewhere than America, say Baghdad, Beirut, Amman, Chechnya, ... ?
4) In your world does “action” always equate to getting what YOU want, and pee on the peons’ wishes?

If it were a three round burst model then it was an M-4 or an M-16A2 and was most certainly a military weapon that he stole. This is how most of the Stoner designs operate for the government these days. No full auto... just 3 round bursts. I know of no way that an individual that is not a licensed and bonded dealer for Class III weapons and firearms could own one legally. LE and Federal government agencies can however and private contractors working with the Fed etc. This pretty much confirms that the US GOVERNMENT CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO SECURE THE VERY WEAPONS THAT THEY DENY TO US! Sorry about the caps but I know that you understand!
