Tactical Firearms claims they were misrepresented on Piers Morgan Tonight

KATY, TX – The gun control debate may be a bit out of control in Katy.

CNN’s Piers Morgan chose Tactical Firearms, a Katy gun shop and shooting range as the backdrop for Monday’s episode of “Piers Morgan Tonight”. Included in the Monday’s debate were Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, State Senator Dan Patrick and Ted Nugent.

Tactical Firearms owner, Jeremy Alcede claims Morgan told him he wanted to use the time at the gun shop as a learning exercise.

Alcede said, “He said, well, I’d like to learn more about guns. People criticize me, saying, how can I be against guns if I don’t know anything about guns?”

Sounds good so far.

“I said man, this is going to be really good, he really is wanting to find out.”

Alcede says he was told the segment he was in would be live, but that wasn’t the case.

“The points that I did make were just garbled to the point that people were asking why was I speaking in broken sentences, and I said, look back at the video and you’ll see, in one instance I’m wearing glasses, one I’m not. One hearing protection, one not. They just chopped it up so bad it wasn’t even funny.”

Was it a cheap shot?

“They completely misrepresented what I wanted to get across, completely.”

We reached out to CNN for a response, but have not yet heard back from them.

All this as President Obama is pushing his gun control agenda. We’re guessing he won’t be welcome in Katy.

When contacted, the shop should have said no and also informed them that if they showed up a criminal trespass order would be filed. How could one be so stupid as to let that bunch on the property?

Why not? Their LIAR in chief is a master at it.

Exactly. The only way the left wins these “debates” is playing on peoples emotions. They can’t do that with facts, so they must lie.

The only way he should have agreed to this was with a couple of conditions. One, he gets to see the final edited cut 48 hours prior to airtime. Two, he gets access to all unedited raw video and audio. Three, he gets equal time to add his own rebuttal at the end using any footage or new footage. You know cnn, or any msm group with an agenda, would never go for it... Because they would either have to be fair and honest, our come off looking like the agenda driven manipulative jerks they are.

Piers Morgan keeps getting his rear end handed to him yet keeps having these pro-second amendment people on the show.

Its an effort to get ratings in addition to pushing their agenda. We are playing their game.

Morgan lost his job in the UK for dishonesty, why would anyone expect him to be different now?

Lesson learned? Next time, or really anytime you have Media creeps recording you or any other Conservative: Have your own recording going. Do not let them control the timing and presentation.

Better yet, never sit down with such enemies in the first place...

As the old saying goes, you lie with the dogs you gonna get their fleas....

He made the choice to let this dirt bag on his property and now he is going to pay the price. He made a “low informed” decision just like the “low informed” voter.

What is wrong with these stupid people?

Why not, the Whigs keep going on the Presidential debates with the same people.

CNNNBCCBSABCMSNBC: Mr. President, what is your favorite color?

CNNNBCCBSABCMSNBC: Hey doofus Whig, how many old people do you plan to take their Social Security away?

Another failure to inform the citizen about the duplicity of Pravda and the need to take their own video just like the Globull Warming skeptics do now. CNN has been doing the same thing since Teddy Turner started this crappy network. Take a look at how CNN has produced fraudulent video of the Sandy Hook hoax.

There should be a new rule among conservatives. Never trust a liberal. Always assume he’s lying. Again, that’s “Never” and “Always”.

“I said man, this is going to be really good, he really is wanting to find out.”

That was your second mistake. Your first was wasting oxygen responding to their call. I'm so done with talking to gun grabbers. Not interested in gaining "converts" or educating the uninformed. The time for that has long since passed.

That gun shop owner needs a lesson in common sense. I predicted this would be the case BEFORE Morgan ever set foot in that place.

I have been familiar with the news media's tactics for some time. They will lie, cheat and distort anything you say to get their liberal point portrayed and not you personal views or opinions.

Here's my suggestion to anyone who would be approached for a media interview. Give them NOTHING! They will change and distort what ever you say, just to make up their story. If they are going to lie, let them do it on their own and not use you as their scapegoat.

Yes: The first mistake was made when they trusted Piers Morgan —and the Media in general.

I once had a bad experience with the Media, and the best way to handle them is to stay as far away as possible.

There’s no reason to believe that liberalism/leftism would be based on anything else.

Liberalism is the political expression of the religion of Humanism, which had its origins in the lie “you will be as gods”, from the father of lies himself.

Ha. It reminds me of the SNL skit with Connie Chung, Newt Gingrich (Chris Farley), and Newt’s Mom.

What a maroon. He wasn't aware of the enemy's oft-used Gotcha! game plan?

He should rename his business to Tactical FAIL.

Hold on here, Tactical Firearms owner, Jeremy Alcede allowed CNN to use his shop to help Broncho Bamma push through his anti firearm agenda. Now he is crying foul? He was duped?
Horse hockey! Mr Alceda wants me to believe that he is smart enough to obtain a FFL and to operate a gun store, but too stupid to know that ABCNNBCBSFOXMSNBC would use him for propaganda.
I for one would not patronize Tactical Firearms due to the fact that I could not trust him any more than I trust CNN.

Exactly my first thought. When will the right, or anyone opposing anything the left is pushing, learn that they will NOT get a fair break from the left, and should shun them at all times? Unless they just grab the microphone when they know for sure they’re live, and ignore the libtard host or anchor?

I wish we could get over promoting Piers Morgan. The guy was headed for cancellation before he started landing guests like Ted Nugent and Newt Gingrich.

Morgan is all about self promotion. Stop enabling him.

“They completely misrepresented what I wanted to get across, completely.”

CNN and Long-walk/Short-Piers Morgan LIED and misconstrued someones message? Does someone have the baby from the stock trade commercials showing his "shocked" face?

Just made this this morning on Paint. Took a half hour.

I'm not sure about Piers Morgan, but I'd guess secret Stalinist.

We have a winner. When dealing with any media "Just Say NO", they are well practiced at making people look foolish in just 30 seconds. Remember they own the camera, they own the film, and they own the editing equipment. Enough said.

And/or four: get the agreement to air, unedited, in writing. (Then you have a much better legal case if they do try something.)
