Royal Pompous Pain

P. Morgan is a royal pompous pain in the backside.
Pay no heed to that Redcoat for he speaks treason against the Constitution.

It seems

Many fail to realize that the gun murder rate may have dropped in Great Britain, but the overall murder rate didn't. Because there are less guns, the killers just found a different way to kill. So the problem really isn't solved.

The same thing would happen here. Killers will be killers and they don't need a gun to do it.


Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

John Adams

Is It Me?

or does Morgan's smug face make you want to slap the shit out of him?


It's most of us.

He scares me.
If I STARTed slapping him, I don't know if I'd ever be able to stop.

This Should Make You All Feel Better

Piers Morgan falling off a segway breaking 3 ribs.
Can't tell who it is in the video but Morgan publicly confirmed it was him.


I don't personally know either man

so I can only use my own mind and follow what is logical in my view. Pratt is arguing FOR the 2nd ammendment. What he says makes sense to ME. Morgan has an agenda. Pratt may have an agenda but its not counter to what our founding fathers believed. I just can't imagine any man, given an option to have an AK47 or to have no gun, to choose no gun if a stranger had broken into his home and he had family members he wanted to protect.

Right this minute I can call a 17 year old that can get me a gun within 24 hours...probably less.

Without exception, people who want any type of gun banned, still have not figured out that Governments are nothing other than the largest "gang" in their geographic area. I used to think Governments were all about helping the people. And I used to think OUR Government was the MOST caring and the one Government that truly wanted to help the people of all other nations. Boy was I duped.

The pain of being deceived has long passed....but the memory of what I once believed remains. I used to get drunk and sing lee greewoods "God bless the USA" with pure pride. Now if that song comes on, my wife and I both laugh and curse as we reach to change the dial ASAP. lol

Pratt rocked! Morgan ultimately controlled.

Pratt did well.

I wish though, that he had more agressively refuted Morgan's attempt to make the statistic of 62 mass shootings (four or more) in the last 3 decades, an issue to promote gun control. Pratt eventually refered to it as a "circular argument" and did hit on it a few times in attempt to turn the argument 180 degrees, but the attemts were unpassioned and broken. It is a central refutation and needs to be succinctly put out there, that ALL of those 62 shootings were done in gun-free zones, that the rise in shootings matches the rise in gun-free zones, and that potential mass shootings in unrestricted zones were capped at three deaths because there were responsible "civilians" at hand to intervene.

Pratt also tried like hell to shift Morgan's emphasis from "gun crime" to the more meaningful issue of "violent crime". Morgan ultimately controlled the debate, and Pratt's point didn't fully flower. The UK has roughly four times the violent crime per capita than the US. When comparing the US to the UK, what sane person would not place such a statistic as a central point?

Alex wouldn't have let that little puke take charge!

To those of you out there that think Alex should have been more controlled THIS is what would have happened if he had! The only way to deal with garbage like Piers is to beat him at his own game. Larry did okay but he could have taken less crap too.


It's The PRESCRIPTION DRUGS for crying out loud.

NOW! Don't just read all of this and hit the DELETE.
Pass any or all of this information on and make some calls.
The problem is with certain prescription drugs that all of the shooters have
been prescribed and may well have quit taking, which would cause the
type of radical behavior that could have caused them to do the shooting.
We must demand that our gun rights organizations address this issue.
SAF - Second Amendment Foundation at 425-454-7012
GOA - Gun Owners Of America at 703-321-8585
NRA - National Rifle Association at 800-672-3888
Evil prevails when good men do nothing.
We do have some good people in elected positions.
But if we are to expect them to do the right things, we must
let them know that they are not acting alone, that we have
their backs, and we will support them IF they do the right things.
Contact your elected representative to let them know we do not
endorse any more gun control legislation. At least not until they
address the REAL issue involved in every one of the mass killing
incidents over the past decades. certain PRESCRIPTION drugs.
And until they OUTLAW those known and named that these poor
bastards were prescribed...there is no further argument concerning
further infringements on our constitutional gun rights....period.
Prescription anti-depressant drugs like PAXIL, ZOLOFT, PROZAC,
which are the exact drugs that have been known to cause adverse
and devastating side effects, need to be addressed and considered
to be discontinued as a treatment for depression.

We can only make a difference...when WE decide to make a difference.
That is how we will keep winning.

We don't really know that

We don't really know that that is the cause, it just so happens that many of these people are taking them. I think it is obvous there are more sinister forces at work here. The inconsistencies with Sandy Hook And Aurora as well as the "coincidences" with the Batman maps and the timing legitimize that assumption.

Morgan's repeated lament

that the Second Amendment was crafted in the days of muzzleloading musket's should be countered with the fact that the First Amendment was crafted when the only press was one which stamped out newspapers manually one page at a time. Perhaps in light of TV, radio and internet we should be delving into control of the press, particularly when they attempt to use one freedom to take another away from others. Anyone really have any doubt about the media and its actions in regard to our election process?

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

To paraphrase Morgan, that gun laws allow for

easier access to guns, however, they're of little use because nobody has stopped the mass shootings over the years. BS! Try carrying a gun, Mr. Morgan, while at school, or into a mall or church without causing for a stir from the general populace, or from "security" folks, or the police. Folks from my neck of the woods say you speak with forked tongue, which means, you're a liar or just plain dumb.


Larry Pratt OWNED that limey brit.

I just signed up to be a member of GOA!


Piers is such an ass

Larry Pratt is a very nice guy.

The Liberty movement is making Piers rich with all of these views we've been giving him over the past weeks. He's probably loving the ad revenue bump. "cha ching!" he thinks.

This is my answer to the gun

This is my answer to the gun debate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pij908gjSA&feature=youtu.be I have a website called McGuffeysOnlineTutor.com and lesson 67 from the fifth is about William Tell!


I first off don't watch any MSM on cable tv after the treatment of Dr. Paul!
I have been thinking of closing my account with the cable provider being that paying money to support this "brainwashing" group is wrong.
I would support the idea of only paying for the channels I select!
If everyone supported this, it would change the way it is today!

Ditched cable

I got rid of our cable and bought a ROKU. A lot of channels are free, but if you want more a Netflixs acct is just 7.99 a month. You need a internet connection and a wireless router. We love it.

"When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny."

-Thomas Jefferson

We ditched TV altogether when

We ditched TV altogether when the switch to digital transmission was made. Just never bothered to buy a converter box. Still use the thing to watch DVDs now and then, but mostly we watch what we want on our computers.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

That's right, it switched, didn't it?

About a year and a half after the switch to digital transmission I was listening to a football game on the radio (Packers vs. Vikings). It was a such good game that for the first time in years I was inspired to think, "Hey, I should actually watch this!" I did have a television that I used to watch SpongeBob videos and movies on DVD. I rolled it out of storage into my living room, turned it on [TV mode] and observed the blue screen. I changed channels - blue screen, blue screen... I finally remembered stories of the switch from analog transmission the year before. I also remembered the last thing I had watched on television, PBS's broadcast of Scorcese's Dylan documentary "No Direction Home" which had aired about a year and a half before the analog to digital transmission switch. I laughed and turned my radio back on. :D

Turn it off

Pull the plug on the drug!

Anything you want to watch can be streamed, for free.
Get a great tower, wireless mouse and KB. Use your TV as the monitor and you will be so happy when you stop scribbling checks to your slave master.

3 years and counting since I went with this solution couldn't be happier and haven't missed any thing I wanted to see.

In watching this I have more

In watching this I have more respect for Alex Jones. Piers Morgan is a bully himself that hides behind a false pretense of intellectualism to berate the people he is debating. I like how Piers only uses stats on "Gun Murders" and not murders in general. If a women is beaten to death with a bat and cant defend herself with a handgun, that is surely morally justifiable but if someone is shot then suddenly it is a valid statistic?

The correlation Piers used between lax gun laws and mass shootings is a false argument as well due to 3rd party variable. By Piers' logic Ice cream consumption is the cause of rape because in the months of high ice cream consumption there is a greater instance of rape. The truth is more ice cream is eaten during the summer and more people are out and about. The same third party variable is in effect with the Gun arguement and that is SSRI drugs which I am glad Alex Jones pointed out. More guns arent causing these mass murders, mass prescription of SSRI drugs that disconnect people from reality and make them commit atrocities is.

Piers Morgan is an idiot, he just sounds smart because of his haughty British accent.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Even more so...

...there's only a few people who say that the problem is a heart issue. Ben Swan says it clearly in his video at the end. What ever the weapon is the issue is what is driving it, our hearts.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
And those who have not heard shall understand.

Not satisfied until every country is the same

One thing I find repugnant about Europe is that not only do many Europeans feel self-righteous about the issues of gun control, death penalty and corporal punishment, but also they're not satisfied with their agenda being applied in all of Europe.

They want to export it everywhere else, as if the mere existence of countries with different rules and viewpoints was an insult to Europe! Never mind that the 'good advice' comes from what has been called 'Broken Britain', a country ravaged by alcohol abuse and family breakdown.

Please visit my site for more information about my libertarian book. Thanks!

You're not a friend

Piers newspaper ratings

Larry gave him a upper cut to the jaw at the bell. Like a Mike Tyson blow. Somewhat like Alex did a Mike Tyson ear chew.

Money talks and dogs bark

I didn't get the Newspaper Thing...

It almost read like a dry script. Guess it was an inside joke and I'm on the outside of it.

Lot's of respect for Mr. Pratt! It scares me that gun control is even being discussed. I am reminded of the Health Care "debate." It seems "they" talk and then just do what "they" want. Remember all the town halls re: Health Care? People were livid and "they" did it anyways.

It seems to me "they" gotta take the guns before "they" start in on the "death panels." IMO people are not going to put up with railroading on health and the stealing of pensions...they've already stolen the jobs.

I think the whole system has been set up to fail so "they" can usher in the New World Order.
