My son's unedited interview on The Young Turks. Enter to win a Remington 1100!

Exchange gets heated when Cenk shows that he doesn't believe in private gun ownership. Read our blog post where we destroy Cenk's bogus statistics. http://www.armedcitizenproject.org/blog/2013/03/17/47-Times-...

CENK dah douche!

cenk's statistics are bs
this guy is past irrelevant.
current network (al-jazeera) is past irrelevant.

"I'm gonna talk to you guys in a second why i think its a bad idea, but first i want to get a better sense of the program." - cenk

43 times more likely to get yourself killed. bullshit.


Big props to these open-minded women and KYLE!!!

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."

I'm actually a little disappointed

that Kyle never invoked the "Freedom Argument" in this interview.

The Freedom Argument goes something like this: "I understand that you personally feel safer in a household without guns and I respect that. We obviously have differing opinions on what is the best way to keep ourselves and our family safe and if you feel safer in a gun free home then I respect your freedom to keep your home gun free. Can you please allow me the same freedom to keep myself safe in the best way I see fit, which is to be armed. We have differing opinions and all I am asking if for us to mutually respect each other's freedom to choose the best way to protect ourselfs and to accept the consequences of our own actions."

Cenk looked foolish...

He's also wrong.

In the year 2000, 86 children under 15 died by accidental shooting in the US. 943 died by accidental drowning.

Would Cenk berate a family with a swimming pool?

Your son did very well,

Your son did very well, especially considering how these interviews go.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Their stats are loaded!

Cenk is awful here :/

A suggestion for your son:

Every time anti-gun folk will bring out their statistics. They will say:
"More guns = more gun crime" Cenk does it here, Piers does it, they all do it!
"More guns = more gun related homicide"
"More guns = more gun related suicide"
"More guns = more gun related robbery"

You simply have to point out their statistics are loaded:
"A nation with no guns would in theory have no gun crime, but there would still be rape, murder, and burglary, BECAUSE it is not the GUN that makes society sick, and removing them is not the cure. I do not CARE whether a murder is committed with or without a gun, I care about how much crime occurs overall! And if you look at THOSE numbers, and not your slanted numbers, you will see the numbers are in my favor. More guns equals less crime, gun-related or not."

your son is a genius.

don't know why we didn't try this angle before.

Cenk is such a

Cenk is such a weenie-grabber. People like him can not conceive of the concept of getting proper firearms training for oneself and family members. They are terrified of firearms because they have no understanding of them, but will never learn.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

good thing

this interview has nothing to do with the historical context of private gun ownership.

either cenk is shallow and reactionary, pandering or he is completely ignorant.

i'm just thankful he hasn't stooped to piers' level yet.

Good interview

However, the women seemed to take Cenk's emotional bait. They got a lot more riled up than they should have.

And I was concerned when that woman said she was going to teach her son to use the gun at 5-6 years old. Come on...children at that age don't even have a real grasp of the finality of death or how dangerous guns really are. Don't vote me down as some liberal trying to promote getting rid of guns. I just think 12-13 years old at least is a more appropriate age.

My dad taught me to shoot an air rifle at 5 years old

Maybe a year later I was allowed to take the air rifle out by myself. Then I graduated to a .22 caliber gunpowder rifle at 7 years old, and was allowed to take it out by myself by 10 years old.

I never did anything irresponsible with any firearm until I was 14; I found an old, abandoned truck on my neighbor's farmland and shot the windows out. And that is the only time I have ever been irresponsible with firearms and I have always been anal about firearms safety.

Some kids are just more mature than others.

Was that Piece Moron?

What a waste band width.

Couldn't make all the way through...

On the few occasions in the past that I have had the displeasure of watching Cenk Uygur I had decided he was a total ass...this segment certainly confirms that conclusion.

He must have gone to the same journalism school as Peirs Morgan.

Cenk supports

Al Gore and Global Warming.


If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

How on earth can this schmuck

How on earth can this schmuck sit there and tell a woman she cannot defend herself with a gun?

Does he want her to use a scissor?

You cannot argue with idiots.

Awwwwww man

Talk to the NRA about assault weapons??? Come on...



You guys did great! Just as an aside...

How in the world does Cenk get away with calling his show The Young Turks?? Does the general public not know the history of genocide perpetrated by the group of that name 100 years ago? Can you imagine someone hosting a show called the Nazis, or the Akazu, or Khmer Rouge? Doesn't anyone give him flak for the name of his show?

I just looked this up and I

I just looked this up and I was totally surprised to see that you're right. How the hell does this guy get away with naming his program after the Turkish equivalent to the Nazis?
