CNN’s Piers Morgan Continues Anti-Gun Jihad – Tells Pro-Gun Advocate: “You Shame Your Country!”

The media has been on an anti-gun jihad since the Sandy Hook slaughter last week. This is despite the fact that at least two mass shooters were stopped dead in their tracks this week by concealed carry permit holders.

On Tuesday, CNN’s Piers Morgan rudely and disgracefully tore into guest Larry Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, calling him “an unbelievably stupid man” who’s “dangerous,” concluding the interview by saying, “You shame your country!”
NewsBusters reported:

Piers Morgan hurls insults the entire segment. What a jerk. You shame your country, Piers.

NewsBusters has the transcript:

PRATT: Your violent crime rate is higher than ours as is the violent crime rate in Australia. America is not the Wild West that you are depicting. We only have the problem in our cities, and unhappily, in our schools where people like you have been able to get laws put on the books that keep people from being able to defend themselves.

I honestly don’t understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. It’s incomprehensible.

MORGAN: You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?

PRATT: It seems to me that you’re morally obtuse. You seem to prefer being a victim to being able to prevail over the criminal element. And I don’t know why you want to be the criminal’s friend.

MORGAN: What a ridiculous argument. You have absolutely no coherent argument whatsoever. You don’t — you don’t actually give —

    Mind the business of your own country Piers.

    And don’t come begging to the US the next time Britain is on the verge of collapse and/or annihilation.

    We’re done with saving the likes of you and your pathetic “has been” country.

    Btw Piers, Britain has a blood stained history that greatly exceeds that of the United States.

    Mr Morgan: There is a happy solution for your boring A$$, get the hell out of here , go back to England you schmuck. Oh that’s right you can’t make a living over there.

  • Look-Out

    Here are a few Brits with another opinion:

    from 1:50 mark:

    “liberties that have already been sacrificed for the politicians false promise of a safer society”

    “gun bans, that as predicted, have simply backfired”

    “40 percent increase in firearms’ crime since the ban”

    “we need to be armed; we’re not safe any longer, everything is changing””

    “some members of Parliament are questioning the government’s anti-gun agenda…an agenda that has, without a doubt, failed”

    Piers Morgan, you are beyond rude. Disgusting’re pathetic, actually..Mr. Pratt was absolutely correct in his assessment of you.


  • valerie

    Piers Morgan is evil. He said something much worse that what Jim has reported, above.

    “… on Twitter, CNN’s Piers Morgan answered “of course I am, you moron” when asked if he was “gleeful that a tragedy happened to help you push your cause.” ”

    That heartless bastard should be fired.

  • John Fembup

    Who can one believe anyway? Piers Morgan? Or this:

    “The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year – a rise of 89 per cent. ”

    “A new study suggests the use of handguns in crime rose by 40% in the two years after the weapons were banned. The research, commissioned by the Countryside Alliance’s Campaign for Shooting, has concluded that existing laws are targeting legitimate users of firearms rather than criminals. “

  • bigL

    C’mon CNN has guards at the desk and Morgan might have a pistol himself or a security guy when he goes to the store.

  • cavt

    For the life of me, I do not understand why any conservative would go on CNN or MSNBC. They treat them with disrespect and insults. No one with brains watch these stations, so what’s the point? All the conservative does is allows them to do the insulting soundbite like this one, that will then be picked up by the rest of the media, resulting in publicity that these channels would otherwise never get.

  • Paz

    Piers is another spokesman for the globalists.

  • Bodies where not even counted for the Alinsky media started calling for gun-control…….here little info about our British friend Piers Morgan………..

  • ★FALCON★

    I doubt anyone here caught Hardball with Tingles earlier in the week – I think it was Monday. I was flipping through the channels and caught the segment with Pratt – he was the guest along with an anti-gun nut from the ATF.

    Pratt had Tingles stuttering and mumbling like an incoherent mop boy – it was priceless.

    Maybe Jim can dig that video up and post it. It’s worth a looksie when the White House is destroyed so thoroughly.

  • BetseyRoss

    I have a great idea. Ban Peirs Morgan. I never watch CNN, I’ve never watched him and if these stupid people that aren’t Liberals wouldn’t go on these programs none of the Right Wing media would cover what Peirs Morgan says. We all know that Libs are either insane or agenda driven and frankly discussing what they say is pretty much off the table for me. I don’t care about Peirs Morgan or any Lib for that matter.

  • oldguy

    The English hate guns because they seem to always be looking at the wrong end of guns in the hands of nations who know how to use them.

  • Look-Out

    Obama’s voting record on gun control. No surprise, he goes easy on violent criminals, but for the innocent, good guys…? Good luck. You’re at their mercy:

    From “ponderon’s” link #16 —

    The BBC’s Nicholas Witchell said it appeared Piers Morgan remained unrepentant right to the end.

    “According to one report Mr Morgan refused the demand to apologise, was sacked and immediately escorted from the building,” he said.

    These episodes perpetrated by madmen the liberals make sure are not institutionalized are merely opportunities for progressive dictators to deny innocent people their Constitutional rights.Do they really expect us to just give up to their aggression? Morgan is a prime example of an upper class British Twit, enjoying armed protection from those he oppresses. Piers Morgan should be installed as the “Minister for Silly Walks”.

    Why is this ass still here if America and Americans are so horrible? Why is he taking money for a job from Americans? Get the heck out of here scum and go back where you came from. Clean up the mess in your own country.

    “I honestly don’t understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves.”

    The leftists do not want any decent person being able to defend them selves.

    Look at Chicago, take the guns away for decent citizens and let every gangbanger run around shooting who ever they want.

    Pier Morgan has already spread leftist lies/propaganda in England and now does it here.

    What a shame that Americans listen to his BS. Shut CNN and the rest of the leftist propaganda spreaders off 24/7.

  • Reverend-FMJ

    Every time this limey punk states his opinion about OUR 2nd Amendment right, I would like to ask him how many of HIS forefathers DIED defending it. His opinion is IRRELEVANT.

  • Ripped

    Piers Morgan is simply deflecting his own shortcomings on others, nothing to see here.

    “an unbelievably stupid man” who’s “dangerous,” pretty much sums up most of CNN’s commentators.

  • Another Bob

    Pier would have sided with the King of England in the Revolutionary War.

  • DelawareRed

    while I agree that Piers is a twit, it iis impossible for him to shame Britain. With Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and now David Cameron, they are a politically correct country in a death spiral that not only cannot protect the lives of its countrymen but actually punishes those who try to defend themselves. But they are to be sure still ahead of the French who are only good for wine and cheese. Britain at least has good beer, good cheese and good music.

  • Radegunda

    A few years ago, when Piersy Baby was judging “Britain’s Got Talent,” he professed to be deeply moved by a group of young people who did an overtly messaged performance on the horrible epidemic of KNIFE CRIME in Britain. He thought it was wonderful that young people were openly standing up against the terrible national tragedy of RAMPANT KNIFE CRIME.

    So, Piersy Baby, what is Britain doing about the scandal of knife possession?

    Meanwhile, the British government shows no mercy to those who dare to defend their lives from violent attack.

    Piers Morgan is a brainwashed moron, and facts do not matter to the brainwashed. They cannot comprehend facts, plus Morgan is a dumbass. The gun crime rates in Britain have gone up 40% since the ban on guns – the criminals don’t turn in their guns; they just use them against defenceless citizens. Piers Morgan is the stupid one.

  • OldSailor

    Morgan reminds me of an arguement I had with a female lefty on another discussion board. I asked her if she considered a woman who had been raped and strangled to be a morally better person than a woman who shot and killed her would-be rapist in self defense.

    The dingbat answered “Yes.”

    I taught Mrs Sailor and my daughter how to shoot and am confident that a would-be assailant wouldn’t live to regret his mistake.

  • Rock

    So am I to believe John Carburruvius tweeting “Can we now shoot the #CNN crews and everyone who works with them?” would be acceptable by the tolerant Left?

    As for Morgan he shames manhood, what a spineless dork.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    PRATT: It seems to me that you’re morally obtuse.

    Well I guess we should understand why Piers is upset considering what the Tea Party did to the British empire way back when. He wouldn’t be the only one with a funny accent in the room, if we had been disarmed.

    Piers Morgan can kiss my……The interloping bum needs to take his socialist sarcasm and hop a freight back to the land of socialist milk and honey. No one gives a rats ass what this man says or thinks, his ratings speak directly to that reality, so why waste space to allow him the time and place to have one of his British mental enemas. Whats the term? Oh Yes! Now I remember! Bugger off master Piers! Go back to where someone might actually give a tinkers dam what you have to say.

  • Piers Morgan doesn’t live in Britain because his bodyguards can’t carry firearms.

    Martin Bashir doesn’t live in Britain because British Muslims have a fatwa to kill his apostate ass and he doesn’t feel safe.

  • Janine

    Banning guns won’t do anything. Criminals get guns illegally already. If you ban guns the only people who will own them are criminals so how are civilians going to have self-defense? Shooters prefer unarmed victims. More people die from car accidents than guns. Should cars be banned too?

    Your ratings shame your network, Mr. Morgan.

    Pierce Morgan is just your typical traitorous anti Second Amendment democrat.
    Keep stocking up on guns and ammo, Patriots!

  • progresive perfection

    We know why progressives are so loud, prancing around with megaphones screaming “Guns are bad! Guns kill! Ban guns! Blame something, anything, quickly… misdirect. God help us if they make the connection!”

    For if we think about what happened, we have an ill young man who has needs. Embracing Sandra Fluke and Barack Obama’s redistributionist ideology, he wanted his needs satisfied. He was his own community organizer, refusing to be shut away in some institution. As Barack Obama has repeatedly said, we sometimes have to get in others faces, let it get bloody as the unions have said when they need things others have.

    Barack Obama and the Democratic Party legitimized the seizure of stuff from others whenever you need it. Condoms. Homes, Money. Drugs. Sex.

    The shooter had needs that were unsatisfied. He needed happiness. How dare those children life in such bliss, while he suffered. His mother wouldn’t provide, and according to the progressive dictates, it was time for him to take and equalize. And he killed. He brought them down, redistributing the misery he suffered. In his action, he became the Progressive Messiah, the redistributionary anti-hero that signifies the perfection of Obama’s ideology.

    Barack, I think we found the son who thinks like you.

  • Marsh626

    No. Libtards like him shame my country of origin. They’ve already ruined the UK and now their Democrat comrades are doing the same thing to America.

    Idiots both here in America and abroad constantly point to sky high gun murder rates in America. But they never discuss the racial demoragraphics behind them.

    Outside of family disputes and suicides, “hispanics” and blacks commit most of the violent gun crime in America. And yet we White, NRA supporting, Red State Americans take the heat for it.

    And when they point to low gun murders in Europe and other Western countries, they forget to mention that gun murder rates were also extremely low in those countries before they banned guns.

    After they banned guns in the UK, gun murders actually increased!

  • Jim

    Piers Morgan is a complete idiot, he really thinks if America outlaws guns that the criminals will turn them in. What a stupid person, typical Liberal, why can’t we all get along, if there is a law against shooting someone, why, of course the criminals will abide by it…..haven’t they been doing that for the past hundred years. Obviously a law will eliminate the law breaker.
    Piers, I apologize to all idiots for calling you one…you are way below level of idiot.

    Piers Morgan is such a complete ass I see no benefit for anyone with self respect to appear on his program. I would suggest Piers crawl back under the rock from which he slithered forth.

  • if you think that gun violence is at all time high as the media tells us maybe you should think again. 2008 the last year i could find evidence for represented a thirty year low in gun deaths. i don’t know what has happened in the age of obama but this seems like another case of being MISinformed by the media.

  • American Woman

    The Progressives are mentally unbalanced and that is the only explanation you need for Morgan’s behavior. He and people just like him have ruined the once great Britain; now he spews his fascist ideology here to destroy our country.

    This CNN excuse for a reporter needs to be deported at once on the grounds that he is mentally unbalanced and we have enough crazies of our own to worry about.

  • David J

    His show is reflecting what most Americans feel: that SOMETHING needs to be done about the ease with which machine guns — often purchased with no ID & no Background checks — get in to the hands of irresponsible teens and young adults, thus endangering us all. It’s also about the TYPE of guns being sold. CNN is doing a fine job in having the issues discussed.

  • Alright, all you guys who represent some gun organization know what you have to do and that is to turn down any and all requests for them to show up on this Commie Limy’s show who I guess has taken it upon himself to be the one who whips any pro-gun person who is fool enough to come on his stupid show. And don’t worry about it when it’s only him who starts that blathering about “gutless, spineless, this proves my point they are a threat, cowards, etc.” and whatever name calling the leftist resort to whenever they’ve been proven wrong especially when it’s someone a whole lot smarter then this nut is.

  • VoiceofReason

    Wow. Want to know how to make a list of moronic, bigoted fools with astonishingly low IQs? Come to the comments section on this site. I’m surprised you all can actually use a computer. Piers did a great job, telling this idiotic hooligan what a stupid man he is. More guns = more gun related deaths. End of story. The proof is in the statistics, go check them out. Oooooh, sorry, forgot you probably don’t know how to do that.

  • #64…there are more people who own guns in the united states then ever and from what i can find gun related deaths are down. so more guns=more deaths is not correct. gun related deaths peaked in the early ninties when gun ownership was signifigently lower. maybe you should look up the statistics youeself instead of listening to the democratic party-media complex.

    most gun violence is committed by members of liberal america’s welfare state not members of the NRA. maybe liberal america’s policies of destroying the family are to blame.

    If you’re so ashamed of OUR country why are you here? Oh, that’s right…you’re even more ashamed of YOUR country to have left. Don’t ever forget why OUR forefathers left Europe fool!

    David, and Voice of Reason, you’re barking up the wrong tree…

  • Highlander

    MOST Americans feel that SOMETHING needs to be done about CRIMINALS …. not the tools they use …

  • American Woman

    From Breitbart:

    While the media seizes on the tragedy in Connecticut to tell us that Americans have now largely turned a corner and thrown away their love for 2nd Amendment freedoms, reality tells us something completely different.

    The reality is that “8,000 new members” have the joined the National Rifle Association (NRA) every day since the terrible crime at Sandy Hook Elementary School was committed.

    To be clear, NRA membership always grows in the days after any incident where gun rights are called into question. But reports indicate that these numbers — 8,000 a day — “dwarf past trends.”

    I never new subjects could be so pompous.

  • Harrington

    In 2008, there were over 12,000 homicides by firearm in the United States. In Japan, there were 11.

    In 2011, more than 8,000 people were murdered by guns in the U.S. In Britain that same year, 44 died from gunfire.

    Any guesses about which of these three countries have strict regulations on gun purchases and which does not?

    The Fifth Amendment only guarantees the right to carry a firearms as part of a well-regulated militia. Meaning: the National Guard. Otherwise, you’re out of luck. How come all those supposed constitutional originalists manage to miss that fact?

  • R.Pullman

    nation’s largest gun-rights lobby NRA, Wayne LaPierre speaking for NRA looks and sounded DUMB AS A BOX OF ROCK.put a armed guard in every school. some schools would need 200 guards, 100,000 schools 4 guards = 400,000 pay $30,000 = 120,000,000. + cost of guns, amo. uniforms, $400. equipment per guard 16,000,000 plus training = 16,000,000. + benifits $12,000 per guard =$50,000,000. + amin cost, all said it would exceed a billion dollars, tax guns to pay for this. The NRA is out of control, anyone who wants a gun is a nut job, it is much cheaper save a billion dollars ban guns. “yes” ban all guns. They seem not to talk about the 6000 children killed by guns in the last two years. THEY SEEM TO FORGET 83 PEOPLE KILL EVERY DAY= THERE ARE NOW 300 MILLION GUNS OUT THERE WHY ARE THERE SO MANY KILLINGS GOING ON MR. NRA NUT JOB, DUMB PEOPLE WHO NEED GUNS AND HAVE THEM WHY ARN’T THEY SAVING US NOW MR. NRA. = BAN ALL GUNS= WHY DO WE NEED 300 MILLION GUNS FOR PROTECTION FROM WHAT OTHER NRA GUN NUT JOBS.
    The mother of the killer who owned the guns and had licenses for the guns did not manage to keep them locked up. If she did not have any guns 20 children and 6 teachers would be alive for Christmas, NRA must be held accountable just as if they pulled the trigger.

  • Chaim Paddaman

    Piers Morgan makes his money the old fashioned way, he steals it. He is a poor man’s version of Larry King. He needs a ratings boost. He must control his ridiculous exaggerated and selective emotions. It is all about Piers Morgan. Piers has a very selective memory, he shamed his own country as editor of the Daily Mirror.
