UK news supports GOA, refutes Piers Morgan on gun control

From American Vision News:

America’s favorite gun conTROLL, Piers Morgan, has now been KO’d multiple times (see below), including this failure in a rematch with Gun Owners of America’s (GOA) Larry Pratt. This time, Pratt gutted Piers’ mantra that Britain has suffered only 39 gun murders last year: it’s “a SHAM!”

MarketDailyNews reports,

For a start, Morgan’s claim of only 39 gun murders in England and Wales in 2011 has to be balanced against the fact that top police bodies in England have repeatedly warned that crime figures are being manipulated to reduce the number of recorded crimes and that, “the recorded crime level bore no resemblance to the actual amount of crime being committed.”

A 2000 report from the Inspectorate of Constabulary found that the way England records homicides is completely inaccurate in comparison with the American method and that, “With such differences in reporting criteria, comparisons of U.S. homicide rates with British homicide rates is a sham.”

NOT "Another" GUN Discussion?

..YEAH..That's right, because if WE don't talk about NOBODY ELSE will focus on the "theft" of our liberties.

This Video REALLY spells it out:

"As it turns out, what Pratt said does not appear to have been a 'lie' at all, let alone an 'absolute, absolute LIE!' Quite the opposite."

Piers -- just like any other

Piers -- just like any other gun control advocate -- tries to use the illogical correlation = causation argument. However, if anybody ever went through high school/college, you would know that philosophically, you can't really get solutions from that logic.

And what's even more funny, is that there is absolutely no evidence even correlating less guns to equaling less crime. In fact, that argument works much better for gun owners. In fact, there's so much correlating evidence locally, nationally, and worldwide, that it's pretty safe to say more guns = less crime.

And to top it all off, even if there was no clear solution to less crime, it doesn't matter because American citizens are constitutionally required to own guns for when the going gets rough.

"Constitutionally Required"

...I like that!
It certainly is another way of expressing the responsibilities of :

The exaulted Limey , Mr. Morgan is trying to save his ass.

His ratings were down ,way down and he was going to get the axe. Now he has found a reason to profit on the 2nd amendment. I say pay him no attention and maybe he`ll slime away.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.
Thomas Sowell

This NEEDS BUMPING

Especially when you consider WHY is Morgan so "focused" on this.

He's desperate.
He's been "given" this task.
He's clutching at straws....and so are TPTB.

If we don't keep the info up, for all to see, "they" will bury it in:
FICTITIOUS FACTOIDS
Such as the case was in Britain...so woefully lamented in the video I've linked to:

THIS should be on "the Telly".
