Piers Morgan Calls Pro-Gun Advocate 'Unbelievably Stupid,' 'Dangerous': 'You Shame Your Country'
Newsbusters ^ | 19 Dec 2012 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 12/20/2012 4:05:58 AM PST by Rummyfan

CNN's Piers Morgan has been on a rabid anti-gun rant since July's Aurora, Colorado, shootings that has gotten even more venomous after Friday's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

On Tuesday, he rudely and disgracefully tore into guest Larry Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, calling him "an unbelievably stupid man" who's "dangerous," concluding the interview by saying, "You shame your country" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Why is this ignorant arrogant Brit on CNN? I take consolation that his audience is primarily stuck-at-the-airport travelers.

come now you wouldnt condemn this emigre to a life of British dentistry, would you? Where is your compassion?

Imagine, living in a country where the people trust themselves enough to all have the right to bear arms

I heard Larry on a local show last night, and he couldn't stop laughing about it. Says he's come to the conclusion that he loves Piers and will go on his show anytime.

He said that meltdown was the best thing that could have happened to us.

Someone should tell Peeers that he is free to leave the USA whenever he wants. He should enjoy Mexico and its “chain American gun owners” policy

He’s about to have to face charges in the British press wiretapping/cell phone hacking scandal. He will probably be getting deported/extradited shortly, and he’s not happy about it.

What he’s trying to do is soothe the jittery CNN management and justify his continued employment because his ratings blow and nobody in the UK will employ him.

I intend to protect my family, Piers, if that really is your name....

We have a constitution to protect ourselves from invaders, and originally the BRITISH. Get it homie?? that puts you #1 on the to-be-watched list....

Piers Morgan is a criminal who tapped peoples phones and invaded their privacy while working for Murdochs now defunct NOTW. He’s an assh#le of the first order and not even an American so what the hell does he care about the Constitution?
Absolutely nothing!

You got to laugh at these MSM freaks, who don't go anywhere without being armed or having armed body guards around them Not to mention their studios are protected by armed guards. These hypocrites have the gall to scoff at those who say schools should be protected by armed guards, not stupid signs that say “GUN FREE ZONE”.

Serious question for the whole board: how many of you still have cable or paid satellite? You do realize that even if you block CNN/MSNBC/etc you’re helping to pay the salaries of these people, right? And before anyone mentions foxnews, please consider that (1) rupert murdoch is contemptuous of our right to be armed and (2) it really isn’t that different from the others in that none of them put out news...they all produce processed news product, with a little partisan political seasoning. Seriously, cable and broadcast “McNews” is to news as cheeswiz is to cheese.

We need not listen to anybody British on the issue of guns. Remember that the reason the British were marching to Concord was to sieze the store of arms there. They wanted to disarm the populace and thereby quell any resistance to their growing tyranny. We dared defend our liberty with arms.

With a name like Piers and a look like that, try and convince me he doesn't love a guy with a long gun.

You owe me a new gaydar.

That picture left mine a smoking heap.

I threw all television sets out of the house several years ago. I wish all my fellow FReepers would do likewise. The new world view absent filtration by talking heads, and the prism of Hollywood is nothing short of phenomenal. Whenever I now catch glimpses of the culture while viewing in waiting rooms or other people's homes, it's like watching a freak show of shrieking heads, infantile behaviour, and silly haircuts...by the way, is there a grown man left in America who knows how to properly use a razor? I mean, come on, either grow a beard or shave. Make up your mind. That perpetual three days growth look is so five minutes ago.

That piece of crap ran out of his own country and dares to come to ours and critisize us? Someone needs to frog march him to the nearest plane and return him to the UK (although I’m sure they don’t want him either)

Piers is going to have to be confined in a nice, safe place when this gun grab ultimately fails then.

Duh, I say ol’ Piers, the reason we got rid of you Brits in the 1700’s is that OUR Founding Fathers had the good sense to ‘arm to harm’ any OPPRESSIVE Government.

BTW Piers, there are daily one-way flights back to cesspool London every day now - - - .

Everyone should read this gem by Karl Denninger on the subject of Obama (and many others) being complete hypocrites on the gun ssue: http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=215107

Please also pass it on to other threads and your email lists. This kind of brutal logic MUST become part of the “national conversation on guns” that the gun-ban crowd wants to have.

...calling him "an unbelievably stupid man" who's "dangerous,"...

Because the left can not refute arguments made by the conservative side, they can only resort to name calling and ad hominem attacks.
