Population Totals...

Piers keeps comparing the United States gun murder rate with that of Great Britain and Wales.
The population of the U.S. is 300 million compared to the populations of Great Britain and Wales which combined is 65 million. The U.S. is over 4 times the size of Great Britain and Wales. Based on "per capita" alone the U.K. will always yield lower numbers. Piers needs to start comparing oranges to oranges.

not only that

but if you take out the top 10 states with the highest crime rate (oh and by the way with the most stringent gun laws), it's nearly identical to the Great Britain murder rate with guns, but if you take the top 10 states with the least stringent gun laws, they have a lower gun crime rate than Great Britain.

But death rate by any means doesn't matter. More people die in alcohol related car wrecks, but they are not outlawing cars or booze. People die of all kinds of things.

What matters is owning a state of the art firearm is a right, it's the second greatest right given by the founders of the country.

In addition, crazy Great Britian implemented Sharia law, enough said and Pratt should have mentioned that.

What do you mean it will always yield lower numbers just because

it's smaller? That's not necessarily true if you're looking at a ratio.


I say...

Ben Swan should go on his show next and shut PM down also.:)

I love it. Swann and his

I love it. Swann and his facts would be a great foe for Morgan!

Good job...

Mr. Pratt,you schooled PM again.

Loaded Question after Loaded Question

While the steam is still emanating from Jones' treatment of Piers...

Can you see how scripted this is? Do we need to "out whit" this crafty wordsmith??? Ideas and truth should prevail, but Morgan and his "performance" only deliver emotional crack to the average viewer.

Proud of Larry, he did well this time round

Loved the stab at Morgan's ratings in the beginning.

Morgan: Are you aware that in the 62 mass shootings in the last 30 years in American, no one was stopped by a civilian with a gun

Pratt: Well no crap, a mass shooting that was stopped would not be included in that statistic...

Piercy got OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To me...

...that was the most jaw-dropping moment of the interview.

It completely underscored what a moron Piers is.

Larry Pratt came across as an adult.

Alex Jones unfortunately came across as a child, albeit a child who was making a lot of valid and true points.

Pierce came across as he always does: as a tool of the state.

Why does no one present the

Why does no one present the 'per capita' murder rate? That needs to be shoved down Pansy Piers throat.

Debbie's picture

Do you know what they are?

I totally agree with you, he's trying to compare the rate of his tiny country to our huge country, duh.


Why is no one

Why is no one calling McCrhystal out for equating an AR15 to an M4?!

Even Pratt flies right past it.

It's nothing major...

If your AR15 has a collapse stock on it and M4 feed ramps you can call it an M4.Colt also tried to patent that nickname also, I don't think they succeeded, and can't remember honestly.Everyone I know calls it either,and so do I,because mine has those features.

Uh no

An m4 is a select fire rifle. An Ar15 is NOT.

Who gives...

A crap, it's nothing major like I said. I have a Colt 6920 "M4" Semi Automatic. Colt did Coin the name M4.

So when are we going to boot that

scum-bag Morgan out of the US. I don't know why anyone would watch his show anyway, that whiny little socialist turd makes my skin crawl.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Part 3 is my fave: LP: ..."and I would advise Mr. Obama to

consider what happened to George III when he was doing similar things against the American colonists."
PM: "You're likening President Obama to George III?" LP: "Well, President Obama hasn't banned the importation of ball & powder yet, which George III did, but that was one of the major contributory elements to our war for independence, and George III as you probably know, was so stressed by the loss of his famous favorite colony that he ended his days in a nuthouse, and I wouldn't wish that on anybody."
(PM pretty much speechless after that).


The difference between Obama and George III

is that Obama just thinks he's a king and George actually was one. Though they both are scum.

That was the best. I was

That was the best. I was hoping he would call him a redcoat as well. But at least he dressed down Piers and told him he did a better job of holding himself together with Alex than when he had Larry on the last time.

Guys, trying to find out the

Guys, trying to find out the Cambridgeshire Constabulary report that the UK is misrepresenting their gun murders. Nothing so far on my end.

It's going to hurt Pratt if he was mistaken on this.

Debbie's picture

GOA will probably publish it on their website.

Larry would have verified it. Watch the AJ interview from today, they go into it more.


Something is up with those numbers..

I didn't believe them for a second..

If our government can lie about job creation, then why can't theirs lie about gun deaths? Both countries are crooked as fuck...

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

I don't doubt for a second

I don't doubt for a second that the UK could be flubbing the numbers. But if Pratt was mistaken on whatever he read, public opinion of his performance would be hurt. If what he said has merit though, score one for Pratt, for bringing something up that I haven't seen yet.

But we need that report!

was thinking the same thing

He said Pierces numbers were a sham.

That's what I was wondering

That's what I was wondering during this debate...I'm really hoping Pratt has this right.

Overall a great debate by Pratt, but I felt like he could have hit Piers harder with the violent crime statistics in the UK instead of focusing on the gun violence rate.

The Numbers Count . . .

and I agree completely with you guys.

Larry's performance evaluation will rely completely on the numbers he reported. I've never seen them anywhere. Even if wrong, there needs to be a credible official UK source that put them out there to refer to.

Personally, I'll hold back on passing the link to the interview to others, until this is confirmed.

Did you notice how the split screen gave Mr Pratt a red face

And when it went to full screen the color of his face was normal?

CNN seemed like they were trying to make him appear angry.

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Simply WOW!

Now that is how you put somebody in their place! Calm, cool and collect. That was a devestating volley of information delivered right across that condescending fools brow. Way to go Mr. Pratt!

Debbie's picture

Wow, PM was actually speechless a few times and could only

resort to his kindergarten-level rhetoric of calling Larry a liar. Hahaha lmao! Way to go Larry! I hope GOA gets a million sign ups.
