Piers Morgan ends CNN show lecturing Americans about their ‘absurd gun laws’
Tea Party ^ | Mar. 29, 2014 | Daily Caller

Posted on 03/29/2014 5:11:30 PM PDT by progunner

Piers Morgan couldn’t leave quietly. At the end of the final episode of “Piers Morgan Live” Friday, the CNN host known for his militant anti-gun agenda signed off with one last screed about what he sees as America’s “absurd gun laws.”

“The scourge of gun violence is a disease that now infects every aspect of American life,” he said. “Now I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theater, and then just a few months later 20 first graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change. But nothing has happened.”

“The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence — even when 20 young children are blown away in their classrooms,” he continued. “This is shameful situation that’s frankly made me very angry. So angry in fact that some people have criticized me for being too loud, opinionated, even rude when I debated the issue of guns. But I make no apologies for that.”

Morgan concluded by arguing that his vocal stance on gun control made him very “pro-American.”

“And to those who claim my gun control campaigning has been anti-American, well, the reverse is true. I am so pro-American, I want more of you to stay alive,” he said. “But I’ve made my point — I’ve given it a tremendous whack. Now it’s down to you. It is your country. These are your gun laws. And the senseless slaughter will only end when enough Americans stand together and cry, ‘enough.’ I look forward to that day.”

I know this was posted prior but there was no provision for responders. First off Mr. "Lack of backbone" Morgan, allow me to introduce myself to you. I am the younger of "Progunners" daughters and a first time poster on FR. I'd like to comment on your irrelavent career on the "Communist News Network". My dad told me not to swear on FR so I'll do my best. My first question to you would be this,,,, are you an American citizen in the first place? Or is the answer going to be as mysterious as "The chief commie's birth certificate"? I have to ask because you sure are ignorant regarding the CONSTITUTION or THE FEDERALIST PAPERS". Not to mention knowledge of the problems of a broken family. Yes sir Mr. Morgan, you sure have advanced the credibility of liberal journalism.

what he sees as America’s absurd gun laws

The ONLY absurd gun laws Mr. Wizard Morgan are the anti gun laws,,,, all 20,000 of them. But than again I forgot that you come from a country where the Bobbies have to say Stop,,,, or I'll have to say stop again". Absolutely pathetic.

The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence

You've got to be kidding me,,,, the NRA has failed it's members on many key issues,,,, the NRA is just another money grab.

made him very “pro-American"

You used the wrong pretence ol' chap,,,, you meant to say ANTI

But I’ve made my point

You jolly well have ol boy, you've sure emphasized the fact that your assertions are about as useless as a screen door on a submarine. Hope the doors at CNN didn'thit hit you in the head a$$ on your way out.

Why thank you!

I too look forward to the day when we get rid of these absurd gun laws. What part of "shall not be infringed" is so hard for power hungry wannabe tyrants to grasp?

I've never known anyone who has been shot or shot anyone else outside of military action.

Piers never debated the issue of guns. He made biased emotional proclamations without facts,

Hey I agree with him. The gun laws are absurd and need to be repealed.

Canada and Australia said no thanks, he might fit in in New Zealand, but I think he should go to Iran, I bet they would love him!

“Set fire to Piers Morgan.”

We’re of the same mind, because I was thinking of Jeremy Clarkson’s comment when I read your post but had not yet opened the video. Clarkson would drag Piers behind an F1 car for a lap or two, given the chance. Or maybe Piers could have done a “ride along” in the rocket-propelled Mini that Top Gear sent down the ski jump at Lilihammer!

Yeah, looking like Piers Morgan is the 21st century Aaron Burr.

If this F-ing foreign POS does not like our constitution he can grab both cheeks of his limey ass and get the HE11 out of our country.

Any questions?

When my parents Mr & Mrs. Progunner were schooling me and my older sister about English history, I couldn't believe that London's LEO's didn't carry guns. Talk about absurdness!!!!

Thank you for your response,,,, as I stated in response #1, this is my first posting and you just made me feel welcome to FR. God bless you and your family.

Damm, The musket store was closed so I went to Cabela's and picked me up a AR-15 and a great bolt gun in 7.62X51. Almost got me a Kimber 1911 at the same time but the old lady would get mad if I showed up with only black guns and nothing pink. G_D I love that women! Piers maybe your life would be great if you found a good women instead of a so-so fag boy toy.

Go HOME and leave America the way it was founded. What a disgrace - this is the best CNN has to offer? No wonder no one watches them unless you are stuck in an airport or doctor’s office.

No it is not our gun laws.
It is the US Constitution. You know that thing that made this a free Nation.

I jolly well wouldn’t presume to visit London and lecture the Brits on the. Horrors of their “cuisine” (although I am partial to Yorkshire Pudding and pasties). So for Mr. Morgan to deliver monologues on a subject which is an integral part of OUR culture, is rather tedious and inane.
As we say here in the colonies, don’t let the door hit you in the @$$ on the way out.

Dear Piers,

The last (and only) time you people tried to take our guns, it didn’t work out so well for you did it?
