I think we need to ban gun control laws that keep people from being able to protect themselves. ~ Pratt - Transcript

CNN now has a Brit heading the commentary section of their news to comment on American policies.. Nice class, CNN career short lived news executive.

Edit: He is now talking to his CNN lackeys to choir up and feel better.. and he is actually examining the 2nd Amendment on a piece of paper, EXAMINING whether it can tweaked.. unbelievable

Piers

needs to apologize to the 3 people watching this show for his disrespectful behavior

.

Piers is spinning for his own life!
and HE KNOWS IT!

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

I'm not sure

That could have been the absolute worst behavior I have ever seen by a the host of a show interviewing anyone in my life. I think Hitler would have had a warmer reception on a Jewish talk show than Piers Morgan just gave this man.

I wish I could say he was "schooled" though, the people who agree with him only heard him kick butt and the people who agree with us, heard the opposite. In effect, NOTHING was said at all in this interview. We are the divided states of America, let's stop pretending that we're United and divide this God forsaken country NOW!!!

I wouldn't say that nothing was said

Nothing was said by Morgan of course but Pratt got some good facts in.

You Are Quite Right

See how much more graciously half-Jewish Christopher Hitchens behaves when hosting two neo-nazis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfMm8bV7zEY

I think it this is very

I think it this is very interesting.

If you look at gun ownership vs homicide rates, there is a negative correlation (as ownership goes up, homicide rates go down). This is a very small correlation, but it exists nontheless. Same, if you look at states/countries pre- and post-gun control, it is clear that gun control, especially bans, either increase crimes and homicides, or have a very negligible effect either way (there is a general lowering of homicide rates that may just be noice).

The exception to this is Australia, where there is a strong correlation between gun control, less crime, and less homicide. Not surprisingly, this is an example liberals like to trot out.

Honestly, this makes me think that this is a stupid debate. Gun control, more of it or less of it, doesn't seem to be the answer. There are much better correlations. Less poverty tends to lead to fewer problems. Better mental health policies and attitudes. Fewer single-family households. Better prisons, fewer incarcerated. Tougher judicial system with more lenient punishments.

I thought

that Australia enjoyed low GUN crime, but has high violent crime rates...?

Hi Dr. No,

Did you not see this link on DailyPaul?

Australia Bans Guns, Crime Rate Increases

Fletch

"gun crime has decreased"

"gun crime has decreased" while overall violent crime has increased. You also should realize that while overall homicide rates in Australia have decreased from 1.8 per 100000 in 1995 to 1.0 per 100000 in 2011, The us homicide rate has decreased more, from 8.1 per to 4.8 per. The US homicide rate has decreased 59%, while the australian rate has decreased by 55%, and the US actually loosened its gun laws in that time frame. Stats from UNODC

1:21 Piers...

He can't conceive that a school would have someone carrying a concealed firearm. Funny thing about that... is six months after Columbine we had a dedicated police officer patrolling our high school halls with a 9mm that he OPEN CARRIED on his belt. He didn't conceal shit. After about 2 years of this he started dressing in casual clothes and he didn't open carry anymore but I guarantee he was concealed carrying at least one firearm. To this day, no one has been killed by gunfire at the school.

300 million guns

Yes, Piers, there are 300 million guns in America and not one of them can drive a car. Not one of them can load itself or fire itself.

Yes, Piers, there are 300 million legally owned guns in American and TWO illegally owned guns were used to kill people in NewTown.

If guns were the problem, every police station, basic training facility, gun factory, gun store, gun range, Olympic shooting event, and gun show would be awash in blood, 24/7.

How idiots like Piers can't figure this out is utterly beyond me.

"How idiots like Piers can't figure this out is utterly beyond me."

Oh, it's not beyond me, though. What primarily defines the parroting, servile PTB minions like Mr. TOOL Morgan is their grossly arrogant ignorance and contempt for past wisdom.

Never mind, for Mr. TOOL Morgan, the USA founders listed the 2nd Amendment ... IN SECOND position precisely.

Nah. What really matters, of course, is what Mr. TOOL Morgan's control freak moral standards are up to, in par with his GROUP-MONO-thinking fashion trends (and AGENDAS).

See, I think it's not even too far fetched to parallel Mr. TOOL Morgan's fallacious reasoning with another one :

there are rapists out there. And some women use slutty outfits for fun or whatever. And some of them GET raped.

Let's BAN the sale of slutty outfits, then ! That will lower the rapes statistics !

But never mind the existing laws, that, ANYWAY, DO NOT find any excuse for rapes and rapists NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTFIT of the victim is. Nah, the CULPRIT has to be THAT SORT OF CLOTHING of course ! The slutty outfits !

If a woman never dresses like that, she just CANNOT POSSIBLY get raped, right ?!

And that might match Mr. TOOL Morgan's would-be-Victorian-ish prude morality standards if he had any (but I doubt it).

Yeah, right.

Never mind USA History. Never mind the texts as fundamental as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights' amendments.

Guns and slutty outfits : that's what is evil and calls for creating more crime and victims.

Sure, Mr. TOOL Morgan.

He Insults His Guest from Far Away

How easy for Piers Morgan to sit comfortable at his desk at the CNN studio and make such a slanderous remark to his interviewee. I'll bet if he called Mr. Pratt ‘stupid’ to face, he find himself shocked at being slapped across his smug flabby jowls.

This is America, not socialist Britain. We are the “land of the free, home of the brave”, not hollow words written in some lyrical song but words that have real meaning for all of us. Who does Piers Morgan think he is telling the people what they can have and not have?

Washington malfeasance has supplanted moral rightness, enforced by minions who push out a multiplicity of statutes, regulations, executive orders, laws, ordinances and rules whose contrivance is to serve the continued machination of political dominion over the population. The lobbyist pulls the marionette strings of the policymaker’s mouth and out comes the farrago of flimflam.

We see this occur right before our eyes. We feel the poverty grow within our bellies. Our wealth, our children, our future is being stolen from us. We hear the kakistocracy lie to us every day. These most wicked worshipers of plutocracy laugh at us behind plastic faces that mock the pretense of serving the general welfare of the country. They say what they work for is to serve justice. What they really mean is they work to serve just themselves. They cook up this roux of betrayal and the people hungrily eat it.

Year by year, decade by decade, the magnates execute a carefully orchestrated plot against the people. The citizenry continue to be captured by the spell of trust and deceptive propaganda spewed by political scientists, exalted academians, global fascists, media celebrities and Keynesian economists, all of whom are glamorized by the cooperative fourth estate. Every instance of public discourse about the economy of the nation, monetary policy, foreign policy, military necessity, human rights, poverty, social behavior, etc., has been painted over by the illusion of ‘faith in government’. Little by little we will witness the purge of the republic facilitated by atrocities not experienced since Stalin’s Soviet Union.

Our flag is red, white and blue: red for valor, white for purity, blue for vigilance and justice. The blood of our fathers was spilled in conflicts of old to retain and protect our natural and unalienable rights of freedom and liberty and with the ability to protect ourselves. God gave us these rights, not government.

Washington’s most egregious act is to rape us with our own symbol of independence. Yes, it’s our laurel, not theirs. Politicians come and go but we are here to stay in this fight because freedom isn’t free. The measure of our core is to recover the lost meaning of this holiest of cloth. It is a pretty flag and it belongs to us, the American people.

The faux monarch and his court can’t take our banner from us or use it to further their ideological schemes. We will stand fast and wave our flag in their despicable faces. We kicked King George out of our country in the 18th century and he’s not going to come back, no matter how much this elitist tabloid fishmonger wishes that to happen.

Sir, you will not take our firearms, not you, the President who thinks he’s a king, the invertebrates who call themselves the Congress of the United States, bought and paid for with Lobbyist shekels, nor the federal judiciary who have forgotten the true meaning of the original intent of the Constitution.

You will not succeed in your agenda to disarm America, Mr. Morgan. We are millions, strong. We are rough and ready. We are resolute and a force to be reckoned with. You think the IRA (Irish Republican Army) was a pain in Britain’s ass? You and your oligarch masters will experience such a cascade of resistance that you can’t possibly imagine. Stay away from our guns.

You need to return to that spit of dirt called England, put on your powdered wig and cry in your cup of tea and crumpets. You cannot overcome the will of the people. We have and will remain forever free. We are America.

"Neville Chamberlain your role model" Looooool. Seriously though, L Pratt did a great job, Morgan just talked over him and showed is socialist/collective ways.

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

There once was an entire nation without guns.

Just ask the indigenous people of THIS LAND how that worked out for them.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

We need

to boot this idiot Brit out of the country. The country by the way which was CREATED because colonists could access powerful enough GUNS to revolt from the tyrannical British government.

One shot

One shot from any of the teachers, principal, or administrators could have stopped this terrorist at the door and would have saved all of those children.

The real atrocity, however, is that this boys mother allowed him to handle firearms in the first place. Regardless of her intentions, she trained him to kill.

True and false

You are 100% right, one shot from a teacher would have ended the situation immediately.
To condemn the mother for showing a child proper gun handling is the wrong message to come away with though. I find it unlikely that she showed him how to kill, but rather simply proper gun handling, imperative for any child in a house with guns.

A gun is a very easy tool to learn to use though. Weather proper gun handling has been learned or not, it can be used to kill.

To call a parent training a child in gun handling atrocious is actually atrocious, IMO.
In the same way that teaching a child to operate a car, doesn’t give them license or training to use that car to murder people (much easier with a car than a gun, actually).

Just open the box and see

Donated to GOA after that one.

Mr Pratt earned it!

OMG Piers Morgan, STFU Seriously

What a tool bag.

Saddly it is no use to even talk right now. Everyone will make you out to be a 2 bit loon if you even mention that you think guns are ok... no matter how safe, responsible, capable, understanding, smart, logical and good you are. I wish Tom Woods would do a skit based on this like he did with interview with a zombie.

SMH : How many guns did she own? I mean seriously? Like your guest is supposed to know that fact like it mattered? Then name calling? I mean seriously?

What a clown show of asinine proportions. Piers has officially become the worst talk show host in history on this one.

Nauseating behavior for a

Nauseating behavior for a "journalist," yet it is the status quo.

disgusting idiot this Morgan

this british looser didn't even noticed that the by far biggest mass murder in the recent times using assault rifle happened last year in Norway, where they have the full gun control.

Second Amendment

What part of "shall not be infringed." do they not get?

These gun control idiots need to understand that people who do these dastardly deeds have "forethought of malice" and will stop at nothing. Guns being absent, they will resort to tactics and weapons of mass destruction such as bombs, Molotov cocktails, etc.

The one common denominator is that the people who commit such atrocities do not have God in their hearts. No love for their fellow humans, no compassion. All of the psychological counseling in the world can not fix the absence of God.

Everyone of these mass murderers used weapons that had been legally obtained by their rightful owners but were stolen for their malicious use.

I saw where the Senate had a moment of silence for the victims. This is nothing but an outrage. The victims deserved loud voices raised in condemnation of the absence of God among the misguided and prayers for forgiveness of those who break the Commandments of God.

Lots of murders have been

Lots of murders have been committed in the name of God. Do they not have God in their hearts?

LP was too clear and convincing

This will be the last time he is allowed on state media until this staged event is allowed to pass out of the news cycle. He may have had other appearances cancelled. He was just too good, the message of freedom rang like a bell loud and clear.

He absolutely owned this idiot and many many Americans heard the truth and it resonated. It is a different issue for each person that sparks the awakening and I belief thousand of people saw their spark in that exchange.

If the state decides this will be the one that they dig in an go for guns...it is going to back fire.
