Piers Grills Man Raising $$ For Zimmerman Gun: ‘You Would Sleep Soundly’ If He Kills Someone Again?
Mediaite ^ | July 29, 2013 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 07/29/2013 8:59:39 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

After George Zimmerman was found not guilty for the murder of Trayvon Martin, there was an effort by the Buckeye Firearms Foundation to raise money to get Zimmerman another gun. They raised over $12,000 for Zimmerman, and on CNN tonight, Ken Hanson defended his group’s aim to Piers Morgan, who repeatedly confronted him about how he would feel if Zimmerman went out with his gun and shot someone again.

Hanson explained it wasn’t just a gun they got for Zimmerman, it was ammunition, training, personal protection, and a few other things so he could defend himself and his family. Morgan asked, “Have you offered to do the same for the family of Trayvon Martin?” Hanson replied, “I’m not aware of any threats against Mr. Martin’s family.”

Morgan told Hanson many people are obviously concerned about Zimmerman having another gun, and asked him point-blank, “What if he does it again?” Hanson told Morgan if Zimmerman had to use his gun in self-defense against someone bashing his head in again, “That’s incredible bad luck that he found himself in that situation twice, but we’ll sleep soundly.”

A baffled Morgan asked, “You would sleep soundly”? Hanson affirmed what he said.....

Why is Zimmerman worse than any of the other sludge we have in this country?

Only a moron or an idiot would even bother giving Morgan the right time of day. He’s a senile jerk.

If the guy he shoots has it coming, why wouldn't you?

Would’ve been nice if Hanson asked morgan how comfortable he was fomenting hate and anger against Zimmerman using a false narrative and abusing the facts of the case...

We know that profitable TV ratings are certainly not a factor.

"You Would Sleep Soundly’ If He Kills Someone Again?"

I would sleep the sleep of Morpheus if he killed one person or more who decided to play the "knockout game" on a helpless person.

I would probably sleep better if that certain someone had the initials P.M.

“Have you offered to do the same for the family of Trayvon Martin?”

I would have answered: "They got a 7 figure settlement from the HOA, I'm sure they have the means to provide themselves with all the firearms, security and training (i.e. don't hold your handgun sideways) that they feel they need."

thug lurking around my house gets killed by the neighborhood watch captain as the thug was trying to beat his head into the concrete?

i’d be glad to have bought the guard his weapon... otherwise, the thug might have met up with my kids or wife

yup, wouldn’t lose any sleep if i bought him that gun

of course, if i were to insure the guards had no weapons... and were ‘trained’ to avoid confrontation... i’m pretty sure i wouldn’t sleep as sound

Piers, if he shot another violent criminal in the act of trying to kill someone like Trayvon, yes, I would sleep damn well.

Excellent responses and an exceptional persona presented to a pathetic washed-up cue card reader.

WWI and WWII must have removed most of the BALLS from the UK.. Pity..
They still think Monarchy is cute..

I wonder what the Queer statistics is there?..
They remove weapons from law abiding people..
and wonder how non law abiding people get them.. not that they even need them..

Cowardice must be a virtue in the UK..

That was masterful. I have watched others attempt to emerge victorious with Piers the Lesser. Talking over him, talking louder than him, did not win the debate. But Mr. Hanson’s cooly responsive comebacks, embedded on fact, was the most successful handing of the Limey’s jockstrap to him I have yet seen.

Piers, if Zimmerman gets his head bashed in because he is unable to defend himself, will you sleep soundly at night?

Piers Moregrime performs a public service by saving a lot of us Yanks the expense of foreign travel vacationing because America is the greatest place on Earth and Piers is proof.

“Why should I travel? I’m already here!”, I like to say. If I never see the inside of an airliner ever again, it will be too soon. The inside of my minivan as I travel the interstates of this wonderful nation is thrill enough.

If it is in self-defense? Absolutely.

I wish I had more George Zimmermans in my neighborhood - folks who put themselves on the line to volunteer to watch their area, help their neighbors, and step out to help others. If they get attacked and have to defend themselves, they deserve our support, not censure.

Piers has called the justifiable,self defense, killing of Martin “cold blooded murder” before on his show. So he is directly responsible for the lynch mob that is now making death threats to Zimmerman and his family. That should be a major talking point of any conservative invited on his show.

Would Piers Morgan have been able to sleep soundly if Ted Kennedy had killed again? I think he would have been able to.

Question to Piers - "Would you sleep soundly if the Zimmerman family was executed by thugs who don't understand or care about the Justice system?"

Of course, per an old John Prine song - A question isn't really a question if you know the answer too.

Every visitor to his show should carry a photo of Zimmerman’s injuries and a recording of the 911 call.

Does Piers sleep soundly knowing that Obama F&F guns are killing people. He never mentions this so he must be sleeping pretty well. Oh, and that Benghazi thing too. But God forbid someone actually defends their very life. I never wish ill on people but I will make an exception for this POS.

I read an article once that surmised that most “real” men in England were killed in the two great wars leaving a vacuum filled by homos and pansies.

Well Piers is a pansy.. but a bully behind a shield of one kind or another..
He wants to be proud of the Brits being disarmed.. instead of ashamed..

Cowards that buckled against the IRA... and the Russian socialists..
not to speak of the Fabians.. and those assorted groups..
The Brits are a step behind the French looking at their asses..

To be fair, I understand that Piers Morgan was kicked out of the U.K.

There are a lot of good people in the U.K.

Have most of your information filtered through the BBC for decades, and see how the U.S. will turn out.
