Skip to comments.In Final Farewell Piers Morgan Calls For Total Gun Ban
Posted on 04/05/2014 12:10:41 PM PDT by Lazamataz
After months of ranting and raving about universal checks, bans on semi-automatic rifles, and bans on standard-capacity ammunition magazines designed for defensive purposes, Piers Morgan ended his last TV show last Saturday by advocating an end to civilian ownership of all firearms. Lecturing Americans one last time, Morgan said guns belong on a military battlefield. . . . Not in the hands of civilians.
We can at least credit Morgan for his belated honesty. Over the last year or so, Morgan rubbed us the wrong way, as he did millions of TV viewers. He talked when he should have listened. He disrespected his shows guests. He repetitively engaged in self-righteous (and self-indulgent) monologues, while cutting off others. He repeatedly went out of his way to show that he didnt care what we thought about his personal behavior, his extreme views on guns, and his mistaken belief that Americans would base their political decisions on his own English sensibilities. That hasnt been a winning formula since at least 1776.
In the end, however, at least Morgan came clean about where he would like the debate over gun control to end. Other gun control advocates are not nearly so candid. Take the Brady Campaign. It began in 1974 as the National Council to Control Handguns and openly admitted that it wanted handguns to be registered, and then their private ownership banned. Yet today it pretends that registration and its potential use in enforcing a firearm ban has nothing to do with the groups support for a "universal" checks law.

It's not too many people who can claim failure on BOTH sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

No need. He banned himself.

Maybe Piers can help H0lder out and go into Mexico to retrieve all of the F&F guns....
The gun control movement is all about a total ban, one gun at a time. They will never stop.
An end to civilian ownership of all firearms is the end game of everyone who demands “common sense gun control.”
Pity the poor Monarchist on his little mission to destroy the ability of the Little People to resist the King’s Men.
Perhaps he could return to his sacred Monarchy and live the life of a Subject.
I’ll be forever glad to never hear that Lobster Coat’s anti-American/anti-Constituion utterances again.
Someday, Piers, it may ALL be a military battlefield.
We cannot forever depend upon others to fight our battles for us. When the war comes to one’s own doorstep, it shall be far too late for an application to the central government regarding a permit to keep and bear arms.
Not even to consider the logistics in actually obtaining firearms or ammunition should that situation prevail.
I guess we should care about anything that idiot has to say, but he’s about as close to nothing as a media personality can get.
In 50 years, no one will even know who in the hell he was, let alone anything he said. Hell.... Probably 25 years.(I was being generous)
I had a dream the other night, I didn’t understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said:
“We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave.
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
“The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you’re no more than a slave.
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave.
“You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent.
Although you have no voice in choosing, how the money’s spent.
“Your children must attend a school that doesn’t educate.
Your Christian values can’t be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press.
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S.
“Your money is no longer made of Silver or of Gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our Nation, turn from God in shame.
You’ve taken Satan’s number, as you’ve traded in your name.
“You’ve given government control, to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm,
And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.
“Your public servants don’t uphold the solemn oath they’ve sworn.
Your daughters visit doctors, so their children won’t be born.
Your leaders ship artillery, and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people’s wars.
“Can you regain the freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don’t you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you’ll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children, to live in fear and be a slave?
“People of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our Great Republic, and GOD-Given Right!
And pray to GOD, to keep the torch of Freedom burning bright!”
As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came.
His words were true, we are not Free, we have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants, trample each GOD-Given Right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.
If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you’re asleep,
And wonders what remains of our Rights he fought to keep,
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave:
“IS THIS STILL THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE???”
We don’t want him. The British don’t want him. Maybe Cuba or Venezuela would be more to his liking.
I was hoping a cannon.
“Probably 25 years.(I was being generous)”
I think you’re being extremely generous. Given how much is going on in the world today, I feel that in two years or even less, nobody will even remember who or what he is.
Go back where ya came from ya two bit Lymie.
Final farewell, if only! Morgan is like acid reflux, painful and unwelcome. No wait, that’s unfair and doesn’t do him justice, Morgan is actually more like a hemorrhoid. Yeah that’s much better!
