Why does Piers always only count Wales and England gun murders

Why doesn't he include Northern Ireland and Scotland? They are all part of the UK. Does anyone know a website that has the actual raw unbiased figures for these kinds of statistics. Northern Ireland has the same laws as England (guns are illegal) but as you might know, there are probably more guns there than anywhere else in the UK. I'm guessing there are a number of gun deaths too.

He keeps mentioning the number of gun deaths after they made them illegal too. But what was the number before?

How About This

...we figure out the gun murder rate for the parts of the US between the Mississippi and the Rocky Mountains and cite that.

How about gun murders by British troops in Ireland.

How about gun murders by Canadian and Australian police during gun confiscation raids.

These are not considered murder.

The queens Cops and redcoats are not considered criminals so their crimes against humanity are not tracked.


Good Going Larry

The "To sell more newspapers" bit was great. Did you see that jackass Morgan's face? He got it. Hahahahahhahah


Oh I'm slow

the scandal? Ha ha

Larry Pratt owned it, that is

Larry Pratt owned it, that is why I am a Gun owners Member.

zero gun deaths

Deep in the Brazilian jungle, near the Amazon there is a tribe of people that has never had one single death due to gunfire! Of course, their deaths by spearing is off the hook. :/

Live Free or Die Trying

Piers is a pillow biter



anyone ever hear of harold

anyone ever hear of harold shipman? holy shit...

and piers thinks sandy hook is bad


Well Piers, ya Limey..... if

Well Piers, ya Limey..... if England is so safe.. go back home. Don't worry about us over here...

It's for the children

Debbie's picture

They don't want him.

from Wikipedia:

"Morgan was fired as Editor of the Daily Mirror on 14 May 2004 after authorising the newspaper's publication of photographs allegedly showing Iraqi prisoners being abused by British Army soldiers from the Queen's Lancashire Regiment.[17] Within days the photographs were shown to be crude fakes."

Maybe this is what Larry Pratt was referring to in the beginning of the show when pm asked him why he came back on the show and Larry said "To help you sell newspapers."

And, from a U.K. Independent article of 1/10/13, "CNN increasingly twitchy over Piers Morgan's tabloid past as phone hacking scandal spreads to Daily Mirror" :

"But try as he might, the former showbusiness gossip columnist who has reinvented himself as CNN’s main weapon in America’s rating wars has yet to shrug off the miasma of allegations generated by the News of the World phone hacking scandal."



A gossip columnist

and this brit leads the charge to convince America to lay down her weapons and forgo a second American revolution.

From the 'Piers Morgan School of Questioning':

Piers: "Are you aware that of the over 2,000 home runs hit in the major leagues last year, not one was prevented by an outfielder?"

IN the UK

They dont have guns... but they have enough "Stomped to death" incidents that they actually keep track of them.

I picked this up a few minutes ago. You can read it here or go there. SURPRISING article in Pravda.ru ...

December 28, 2012
These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one's self and possessions.
This will probably come as a total shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free under the Tsar. Weapons, from swords and spears to pistols, rifles and shotguns were everywhere, common items. People carried them concealed, they carried them holstered. Fighting knives were a prominent part of many traditional attires and those little tubes criss crossing on the costumes of Cossacks and various Caucasian peoples? Well those are bullet holders for rifles.
Various armies, such as the Poles, during the Смута (Times of Troubles), or Napoleon, or the Germans even as the Tsarist state collapsed under the weight of WW1 and Wall Street monies, found that holding Russian lands was much much harder than taking them and taking was no easy walk in the park but a blood bath all its own. In holding, one faced an extremely well armed and aggressive population Hell bent on exterminating or driving out the aggressor.
This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington's clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently.
Moscow fell, for example, not from a lack of weapons to defend it, but from the lying guile of the Reds. Ten thousand Reds took Moscow and were opposed only by some few hundreds of officer cadets and their instructors. Even then the battle was fierce and losses high. However, in the city alone, at that time, lived over 30,000 military officers (both active and retired), all with their own issued weapons and ammunition, plus tens of thousands of other citizens who were armed. The Soviets promised to leave them all alone if they did not intervene. They did not and for that were asked afterwards to come register themselves and their weapons: where they were promptly shot.
Of course being savages, murderers and liars does not mean being stupid and the Reds learned from their Civil War experience. One of the first things they did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were. The worst they had to fear was a pitchfork in the guts or a knife in the back or the occasional hunting rifle. Not much for soldiers.
To this day, with the Soviet Union now dead 21 years, with a whole generation born and raised to adulthood without the SU, we are still denied our basic and traditional rights to self defense. Why? We are told that everyone would just start shooting each other and crime would be everywhere....but criminals are still armed and still murdering and too often, especially in the far regions, those criminals wear the uniforms of the police. The fact that everyone would start shooting is also laughable when statistics are examined.
While President Putin pushes through reforms, the local authorities, especially in our vast hinterland, do not feel they need to act like they work for the people. They do as they please, a tyrannical class who knows they have absolutely nothing to fear from a relatively unarmed population. This in turn breeds not respect but absolute contempt and often enough, criminal abuse.
For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or "talking to them", it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.
The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?
No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.
So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.

Post this as a new thread!

I swear to GOD this is what we need!

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Thank Your for this excellent post


With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

And... Larry Pratt Owns Again!

Notice his points are basically the same as Alex Jones's, but the method he delivered it in is... quite different.

His fact that USA's founders believe tyranny would come to this land shut Piers Morgan up, the whole way that larry Responded was all amazing. We are lucky to have him on our side.

While many are making a fuss about Jones's behavior, I highly doubt many will be complaining about Pratt's behavior.

Larry Pratt, with respect and soundness of thought

kept the emotional word bomber Pierce in his place .

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

I'm sorry, I stopped when Morgan once again...

and with his smug condescending demeanor, began rattling off questions from hand-picked statistics, "Do you know how many...?"

And why, WHY, WHYYYYYY does Pratt continue to allow himself to be led down that road? It's too painful to watch. I would prefer he answer such questions by citing the statistics Piers is choosing to ignore.

Please tell me this gets better?

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

Watch all three videos if you

Watch all three videos if you haven't yet. Pratt tells Morgan that his statistics are a sham, that the UK gov distorts the stats and that the UK has the fourth highest violent crime rate in the world. (It's midway through the 2nd video.)


And that is why Pratt is the man and Jones is an asshole

Piers Morgan sticks to the numbers......

and we should too. When Piers asks how many violent crimes are due to guns in the US, we should very calmly say the truth. We should admit that we have way more gun related deaths in this country than England. That is the truth, so why run away from it.

Then, after we tell the truth and nothing but the truth, ask Piers how many violent crimes per 100,000 people happen in England?

Once it comes out that we have a less violent country per unit of population, then you move to the more guns means less violence argument. Done and done.

Now, all of this, of course, is bullsh#t, because there are other variables involved in violence....but if you want to keep your guns that are invented for purposes of mass murder, your gonna need a well thought out logical argument. I mean this is a tough freedom to hold onto, the machine gun is literally here to kill multiple people.

I'm with you for the cause of freedom, even know all you machine gun lovers are some sick ass mofo's.


There are over 2,000 crimes recorded per 100,000 population in the UK, making it the most violent place in Europe.

By comparison, America has an estimated rate of 466 violent crimes per 100,000 population.
