Who reads newspapers

That industry is dying.Going away like the cassette tape.If you buy a newspaper.What do you get.Nothing but advertisements and editorials. The internet rides the horse like Paul Revere once did. Now other web sites like Drudge report,DailyPaul thanks Micheal Nystrom that spreads the news. Thats what I took from it. Even cable news ratings are starting to die.Yippee.

Money talks and dogs bark

Thanks blueman,

For cuing me in! :)

My god!!! That man can really

My god!!! That man can really make my blood flow. I almost needed a mouth piece so I wouldn't grind my teeth! Well now all those Alex Jones haters can see why AJ didn't even let that red coat start his lies attack lines.

Excellent job Larry Pratt. I

Excellent job Larry Pratt. I am sending a donation to Gun Owners of America today.

I love how Larry always keeps

I love how Larry always keeps his cool no matter what, and how the stiff upper lipped, allegedly 'reserved' Brit looses it almost from the get go.

P.S. Regarding murders in England, Morgan might be close to correct about the number of GUN murders but Larry is correct in the number of overall murders which just goes to show you you really don't need a gun to kill an unarmed victim.

important imforation on a ron paul supporter

Great News! At this time we currently have 2 states that have been willing to stand up and nominate ron paul supporter Mark Willis for RNC Chair. Maine and Nevada. This means 2 more RNC members from 1 more state is needed to satisfy the nomination requirements. Have you reached out to your states RNC members yet? If you are not sure who they are in your state here is a great starting point: http://www.gop.com/members/ The RNC Election of Officers takes place Jan. 25th from 11-6pm (tentative).we must have the support of 3 states with at least 2 RNC members (State Chair, National Committeeman/woman) written support in order to satisfy the nomination requirements: http://stepdownnow.com/why-this-is-important-mark-willis-for...


Does Piers Morgan have such

Does Piers Morgan have such contempt for North Americans that he assumes we cannot see through his deceptions. Why does he only quote England and Wales to represent gun homicides in UK? Why does he keep insisting that gun murders are more violent and need to be controlled than other violent forms of murder which apparently is rampant throughout the UK. He does this of course by chiming in, interrupting, repeating questionable statisitcs and resorts again to personal insults to one who refutes his claim. Piers strikes me as the spoiled little kid in the playground who needs to run the street ball team or else he'll take all the equipment and go home. Don't let the plane takeoff without you?

Thank you Piers

for reminding the people that they aren't watching a Newspaper.

Poor Piers, he's digging himself such a deep hole with every interview now. People are so on to his "script" that he's just making himself look like a bigger Twat every time.

What an arrogant piece of shit he is.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


I had to laugh at this fool!
The newspaper comment went over his head so easy!
What an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Fast and Furious

I find it incredible that Piers Morgan came just brush aside the Fast and Furious incident as if it is irrelevant to this issue. It is completely hypocritical to bash citizens for carrying or owning weapons but to let the gov't off the hook.

How does that condescending wet fish have ANY viewers?

How does that condescending wet fish have ANY viewers? Larry King had a certain way about him that wasn't perpetually insulting and demeaning. But this criminal phone hacker Piers Morgan is just intolerable.

He says he never sees any "humanity" in Pratt whenever he's on, but Morgan's the one without a sense of humour. He took Pratt seriously over his quip about "helping him sell more papers."

Were I Pratt, I'd not congratulate Morgan on restraining himself during Alex Jones' outburst, but empathize with Jones and understand completely why he did so.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

I believe the bulk of his

I believe the bulk of his viewing is coming from pro-gun people at this point.

I know I am loving every time he speaks because all he is doing is promoting OUR cause with his stupidity.

Thanks Piers!

Piers Morgan calls Pratt a liar for accurately quoting study...


PRATT: Well first of all, according to your investigator of your constabulary, the data that you’re using for the murder rate in England is a sham. There’s a monumental misreporting of what constitutes murder. If three people are murdered, it’s likely to be counted as one event. And...

MORGAN: What an absolute, absolute LIE!

"More recently, a 2000 report from the Inspectorate of Constabulary charges Britain's 43 police departments with systemic under-classification of crime... "American homicide rates are based on initial data, but British homicide rates are based on the final disposition." ... "With such differences in reporting criteria, comparisons of U.S. homicide rates with British homicide rates is a sham," the report concludes." --Newsmax, Mar 22, 2001 (sourced at link above, which I also started a thread for here)

Just saying

"In fairness to Pratt, in the comment that Morgan originally made which he (Pratt) first responded to with the 970 figure, Morgan did NOT say “gun murders”. He simply said “murders”." - Theendrun.com

It appears Morgan had at the end of the interview (its not a debate)changed his question to the number of "gun" murders and Pratt didn't pickup on that, to me it seems. He then quoted the same murder rate number.

Though the gun murders are low, the total murders are still high and gun control did not help their situation in Great Britain. Also, their numbers seem to be disingenuous to say the least as Pratt had pointed out.

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

I noticed this as well.

Nevertheless, it was obvious that Piers was referring to an earlier set of comments and that is what Larry Pratt was commenting on. Whether it was a ploy by Piers or his producers to ambush Mr. Pratt in that manner is debatable...

Thank you so much for doing that My Friend . .

your efforts are greatly appreciated. Youve provided the info supporting Larry that many of us were looking for.

Please also check out this Michael Moore interview which I linked to in a 2A thread that I started. I think youll be as pleasantly surprised by it as I was. Thanks again:


P.S. - any of you who have more computer saavy than I have, might please record this before they have a chance to take it down from YouTube. Thanks.

You're no friend of mine

didn't read the 180 + responses here to see if someone mentioned this, but did you catch what Piers Morgan said at the very end of that last clip? He said to Pratt, "You're no friend of mine."

Pratts reply, if given the chance, should have been; "My friends could have prevented the Sandy Hook massacre."

Enough of this pompous ass.

The only pertinent question that should be asked is why the Federal Government has recently purchased a few hundred million rounds of ammunition which is specifically prohibited under the Geneva Convention to be used in warfare. If, as history has shown, Morgan pooh pooh's this off he should be asked if he doesn't think the U.S. Government would engage in whole sale slaughter of its populace. Of course he will state in the negative to which he should be directed to look into the history of native Americans as well as Waco and Ruby Ridge.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Larry Pratt is correct

Crime statistics are collected differently in England than they are in the United States. To cite statistics using different methodologies is comparing apples and oranges.

The number of people injured or killed by guns, excluding air weapons, has increased from 864 in 1998/99 to a provisional figure of 1,760 in 2008/09, an increase of 104 per cent .


There were 140 homicides by shooting in 2010/11 according to the British Home Office


Homicide, Firearm and Intimate Violence. The first PDF link, table 1b.

In the latest review of recorded police incidents it has been identified that many violent crimes are being recorded under the heading of "No Crime".

Although the findings are based on investigations in just a small sample of the UKs police forces, it is believed that as many as 33% of violent crimes nationwide are being misclassified.

When listening to the governments carefully worded response to any hint of an escalation in UK knife crime however, time and again, the answer somehow seems to skirt the core of the question. The response normally includes a statement about some tough new measures "about to be introduced" to make our streets safer and some form of comment to the effect that overall violent crime is down! ...the cynical amongst you could however be forgiven for wondering if even that is true, or if that itself could be anything to do with how crimes are classified and which are actually recorded.


Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics...

Second amendment is in jeopardy.

Morgan used the argument that the second amendment refers to a well regulated militia. And if that is the case then we have already lost, since it is not the federal governments authority to regulate militias, it is the responsibility of the States. Giving up the second amendment occurred after the civil war when the federal government took the regulating of militias responsibility away from the States. Next time asked this argument, suggest that all european countries abandon their individual armies, navies and air forces and have all authority and control given to the European Union.
So many are still asleep.

Morgan didn't continue on...

"Being necessary to the security of a free state..."

Morgan is out of his league.

Oops. I posted the same

Oops. I posted the same thing. Good article.

Won't be long till we see Piers' guests in studio...

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

Mr. Pratt is masterful and AJ was unmerciful.

Piers has much less respect for Mr Pratt. He was better this time around though.
Although Piers seemed afraid of AJ, which is something I enjoyed. As for effectiveness AJ appeals to the people that are "awake" and Mr. Pratt is more likely to appeal to the average person. To me both are assets. This makes me want to donate to The Gun Owners of America. Money Bomb to the Gun Owners of America anyone?

Deep down everyone is Libertarian.
Live and Let Live, form of government.


Love Pratt!!

A much better rebound from AJ; He just calmly dismantled PEEiers Morgan's arguments, and made him look like a fool!

That is how you win a debate without making yourself look certifiable!
