According to an article by reporter Samantha Chang for Bizpac Review, Piers Morgan and Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv dug into an epic Twitter battle which underscored how little Morgan knows about the U.S. Constitution.
The clash began when Morgan slammed London Mayor Sadiq Khan regarding his reaction to a rash of stabbings in the city that has propelled its murder rate to a 13-year high.
Very disturbing, the television personality posted. This is happening on YOUR watch, Mr Mayor -- what are you going to do about it?
Kashuv joined the discussion by tweeting:
But Piers, gun control totally worked and made everyone safer! (It didn't because criminals bought knives.)
I have the answer... #BanAssaultKnives they're weapons of war.
Morgan responded by taking the discourse in a different direction. Kyle, why did America ban automatic weapons if its only about the people not the guns?

The young man could also remind Piers that the U.K.’s violent crime rate was far lower in particularly the years before 1967 when police permits for legally acquiring shotguns were first required. Violent crime in that country also went up (and stayed much higher compared to the years before the late 1960s) when wide sweeping gun control laws were created and passed following the murders in Hungerford and Dunblane.
Well done, Kyle. Well done indeed.
More people should refer to the Federalist Papers when debating the left, they have total ignorance about those fantastic documents.
This is what we need more of. That school had 2,972 students at the start of the 2017 school year. There has to be pro-gun rights students in there, and/or students that simply resent Hogg and company making names of themselves off their classmates’ dead bodies. They’re the only ones that can effectively penetrate the mainstream media’s cone of immunity currently shielding Hogg from all dissent.
Except the msm won’t give them nearly the same platform as hogg and emma get. Opposition? No thanks.
Can you imagine the mainstream media ever giving a 17-year-old espousing any sort of conservative view the same mass, widespread fawning coverage awarded to Hogg and González? I sure as hell can't.
Didn’t see a lot of coverage of the PRO 2nd walk out at Rockledge HS in Rockledge FL the other day either. About 5 miles from where we used to live in Cocoa FL. Which is also (Cocoa) where Kel-Tec has it’s plant. Brevard County FL is a good place. Knights (weapons) is also there near Titusville.
So carrying a knife as a weapon in London is like carrying a banned gun here in America.

Good reasons for carrying a knife or weapon

- taking knives you use at work to and from work
- taking it to a gallery or museum to be exhibited
- if itll be used for theatre, film, television, historical reenactment or religious purposes, for example the kirpan some Sikhs carry
- if itll be used in a demonstration or to teach someone how to use it
The Media are making Hogg and Goblina out to be “survivors” of a shooting that never endangered them.....That’s sort of like deciding to make a 2nd string Long Snapper the face of the Super Bowl champions.
He’s a smart kid, that’s for sure
