Boom!… Ben Shapiro POUNDS Piers Morgan On Gun Grabbing and Bully Tactics (Video)

Piers Morgan may want to ban knives, too. Cuz Ben Shapiro cut him to shreds tonight on CNN.

This was textbook material– Ben Shapiro was on with Piers Morgan tonight to discuss his new book “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” and talk gun control. Right from the start of the interview Ben took it to the anti-gun bully – calling him a bully. And, it was all downhill for Piers for the next 13 minutes. For some reason Piers would not answer Ben’s questions,

“If you are so concerned about gun deaths then why won’t you ban handguns? Don’t you care about the children in Chicago?”

Then Piers went on to call the US Constitution, “Your little book!” Disgusting.

This was great. Sit back and enjoy.

  • I don’t think it’s smart to accept the left’s language of “assault rifle.” They win if we adopt their slogans. An AR-15 is not an “Assault rifle” unless it used to commit an assault. A kitchen knife is an assault weapon if it’s used to attack someone, but otherwise it’s just a kitchen knife. Shapiro also seems to be ok with federal registration of gun owners. That’s the first step to confiscation.

    This video became tedious about half way through. Shapiro is not a good spokesman for gun rights, in my view.

    albeit he’s spot on about the left being “bullies”..

    we all know the (fitb & piss be upon him) doesn’t have his
    facts straight, unfortunately.. Shapiro is lacking knowledge
    of a pertinent fact as well:

    December 30, 2012

    Rifle found in Lanza’s trunk not a Bushmaster

    [After two weeks of media reports that a .223 AR-15 Bushmaster
    was found in the trunk of Lanza’s car, gun aficionados point out
    that the rifle is not a Bushmaster, nor even an AR-class assault
    weapon. Gun experts say that the weapon shown in an NBC
    News report is some kind of shotgun. (video & more at link)

    seems to me everything is a dog and pony show, they keep US
    busy with one thing, while doing other things behind our back..

    Federal Assault Weapons Ban

    [The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), or Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act, was a subtitle of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a federal law in the United States that included a prohibition on the manufacture for civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms, so called “assault weapons”. The 10-year ban was passed by Congress on September 13, 1994, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton the same day. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the ban’s enactment.

    The Federal Assault Weapons Ban expired on September 13, 2004, as
    part of the law’s sunset provision. There have been multiple attempts
    to renew the ban, but no bill has reached the House floor for a vote.

    a False Assault on Assault Weapons

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300 rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the assault
    -weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating
    to registration and transfer of machine guns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described
    in the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.


    But it is also a fact that Bush was publicly committed to sign
    an extension if Congress passed it, and it was Congress that
    failed to do so.]

    The Ted Nugent Gun Interview You’ve Been Waiting For

    The Left’s Greatest Mind-Trick: Politicizing Emotion

  • I got a whole different impression on who kicked whose butt here. It sounded to me like this young man came unprepared to deal a blow against this British twit who carries leftist water. He could not counter Piers examples of the latest murders and what they were using to commit those murders. What he needed to have brought with him were the latest stats of killings for the past six months in Chicago and what guns were used by the Black gang bangers, in New York and what guns were used in the latest dozen or the past twenty or so killings, and in Los Angeles and who it was who was doing the killings in each of these cities, what weapons were used in L.A. and how many it was that were killed, and killed in each of these cities, numbers that I’m sure would make it look like no one was killed at Sandy Hook. And this is numbers for every month, not year!

    And while he was at it he could have made Piers look stupid as to the facts as to how many knifings and beatings and clubings, muggings that occured where a weapon other than a gun or a knife was used where there was an injury on the victim and what weapon British criminals are using since they can’t get their hands on as many guns as criminals can in this country.

    That’s what would have shut Piers up. Piers seemed to be able to use ordinary liberal bull crap and take this young man apart. I would be interested in knowing who helped this young man write his book on how the left does exactly what Piers Morgan did to him in this clip and did a good job of it. What Piers did is what has been taking place in every meeting of two or more liberals since Sandy Hook took place. The left has already won the argument as they always do.

    The left will always win the argument until we get our *hit together and start hanging the kind of society THEY have made America into, since they have taken the society over back in the 60’s, like a millstone around their necks and that is how they are the ones who have not brought the Black race into check in the way they were allowed to “just be’s Black” when the Civil Rights Act was signed into law. And that is the left have not tried one damn single bit to tell Blacks that if they are going to get all these freebies they are going to be giving them they are going to have to clean up their act. And the reason being is White tax payers are going to eventually rebel against the money they are going to have to cough up over decades to keep this “fair and equal” scam going if they don’t clean up their act.

    And what I’m referring to is Blacks are going to have to put an end to all the crime where guns are killing their children who are dealing drugs and doing drugs. Where Blacks are going to have to work harder to keep their kids off dope, and teach their daughters to keep their god damn legs together and stop having illegitimate children every time they meet some new guy!! Where the left is doing a horrible job at taking care of the race they took over back in the 60’s, and that trillions of dollars has been spent.

    And now we have the liberals allowing illegal Mexican’s to enter the country in order to have another poor people to use against White people’s Bible’s, guns, conservatism, Republicanism, and their Constitution (because most Black people really do believe the Constitution was written for White people and not for them). And now the Mexican Mafia and MS-13 gangs have most towns outnumbered, outgunned, and just out every other way. Liberals have missed one major thing and that is Mexican’s don’t give a damn about America, our Constitution, either political Party, and don’t give a damn about becoming American or some numb nuts working guy so they can become a citizen. The could care less about becoming citizens, let alone what the left or Obama is going to do in order for them to become citizen’s. They are making all the money they want just the way they are, illegal.

    That’s what this young man should have had ready to unload on Piers Morgan. Otherwise he lost.

    Now, if it had been Mark Levin, that would have been different.

    This Is How a Secret Gun Provision
    Made its Way Into Obamacare Legislation

    [The Washington Post first reported on Dec. 30 about the presence of this controversial wording. Under a section with the headline “Protection of Second Amendment Gun Rights,” the NRA-advocated wording is nestled deep within the law. The Post called the inclusion, “a largely overlooked but significant challenge to a movement in American medicine to treat firearms as a matter of public health.”]

    Gun Advocates Celebrate ‘Secret’ Obamacare Provision
    Forbidding Exec Order To Regulate Guns And Ammo ….

    [As for Reid’s reasons for burying a pro-gun measure into the body of the
    Affordable Care Act, the Majority Leader is said to have been concerned
    that the NRA planned to take an active position against the passage of
    Obamacare and decided, no doubt with the permission of Reid’s friend,
    NRA boss Wayne LaPierre, to head the problem off at the pass by putting
    language in the bill that would mollify the gun lobby.

    Further, there was concern that a conspiracy theory then in circulation
    among right – wing circles — a meme suggesting that the Obama
    Administration had cleverly planted language in the ACA that could be
    used as a tool to get to the guns—would further erode public support
    for the legislation. For these reasons, Reid determined to insert some
    cozy language for the gun people into the Senate version of the ACA
    — language certain to escape public review at a time when the
    conversation was far more focused on hot button subjects like death
    panels, taxes and mandates.

    “There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in
    the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes
    to enslave men by force, socialism – by vote. It is merely the difference
    between murder and suicide.” — Ayn Rand

    Morgan is such a twit. As a citizen of the very country whose tyrannical government drove us to revolt, he certainly MUST understand why American citizens would want to remain well armed.

It haunts them, and makes them feel weak and inferior …. which, of course, they are.

Why any news network in this country would ever employ him is even more puzzling …

    THAT was SO NOT a pounding of PIERS!

    In fact, it was a pounding of BEN SHAPIRO. He gave NOTHIG to the fight.

    Why didn’t he AT LEAST point out that the EXPIRED ASSAULT RIFLE BAN of Reagan PROVED that BANNING ASSAULT RIFLES did NOT cut down on these mass shootings ONE SINGLE WHIT!. HE didn’t challenge PIERS on the mass shootings that PIERS claimed were done with an ASSAULT RIFLE that WERE NOT.

    He didn’t name off mass killings done without rifles, and even without GUNS.

    HE DIDN’T POINT OUT the only times the mass shootings were AVERTED was when SOMEONE WITH A GUN was ALREADY THERE, and they did NOT have to wait 30 minutes – hour for Police to arrive.

    He was so scared of saying something like how unconstitutional OBAMA is, that he said PRECIOUS NOTHING. IN FACT.

    We will lose everything if THAT is an “EXAMPLE” of Piers being told OFF.

    I gotta agree with those who say it was Piers who pounded Ben. He did OK considering how smooth Morgan is, but he did not do great. A private gun registry? Yikes! And after Alex Jones no gun rights advocate should bring up the whole tyranny of government thing. They’ve already painted the tea party as right wing racist loons so don’t feed that narrative. Even if it is true it doesn’t matter, what matters is how they will spin it. Just say women need AR-15’s to protect their property after a hurricane. That’s why I want one. I want a scary looking gun so that I won’t ever have to use it. Just say something like that.

    Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms.

    I thought Shapiro did a fine job when you consider the asshattedness of Morgan. Two points:

    The Reagan quote was almost 20 years ago. My god, look what has occurred in the last 20 years! Reagan couldn’t conceive of an Obama presidency!

    Second: why don’t gun advocates bring up Maj. Hassan? The left wants that to disappear, but this is an ideal time to pound them with that one.

  • Shapiro repeatedly misuses the term “assault rifle.” He shouldn’t engage in these discussions until he learns something about the subject.

    None of the guns used at Aurora or Newtown were “assault rifles.”

    If it isn’t capable of “full automatic” fire, it is not an “assault rifle” — no matter what it looks like.

    And the recently introduced term — “semi-auto assault rifle” — is a liberal media propaganda invention.

    With friends like Ben Shapiro why do we need enemies like Piers the “Slimy Limey” Morgan?

    We need to be careful when praising people like Shapiro who seem to be standing up for our 2nd Amendment rights, but at the same time advocate for broader background checks and “mental health” screening. These are both 4th Amendment issues, so are we willing to trade away the 4th to preserve the 2nd, when we should be trading NEITHER?

    If Shapiro would think for more than a nano-second about the PROCESS he is advocating, it would be very similar to what his grandparents, who are “now in ashes” as a result of a tyrannical government went through:

    The Hitler model:
    1. Broaden the background check requirement to include private gun sales.
    2. The government will then eventually know who all the gun owners are.
    3. At some point this will be demagogued and we will all be asked to register all of our guns. for “the safety of the children” (Both Hitler and Stalon just LOVED the little children)
    4. Of course, at that point the confiscation program of the left will commence, based on
    5. Mental health screenings and provisions under the now enshrined into law Obama Care.

    Which will bring us to:

    The Stalin/Soviet Model:
    At some point we will be denied our rights to own a gun, without due process (4th Amendment) based on mental health assessments conducted by working either directly for or as agents for the government.

    We need to step out, and step out fast, from the echo-chambers of some on the right! ANY of these “conservative” politicians, authors, bloggers, and talk show hosts now advocating expanded background checks and better “mental health” screenings as a requirement for gun ownership are leading us down the same slippery path that the left is, just a little slower.

    The federal government doing anything more than NOTHING about this issue will be an infringement on our rights under either the 1st (movies and video games), 2nd, or 4th Amendments. For years we have been asking the left “What part of ‘shall not be infringed’ don’t you understand?”. It’s now time to ask ourselves this very same question.

    We don’t need to broaden mental health screenings however we do need to enforce the
    laws we currently have to bar those with serious mental health issues from obtaining firearms.So often these nut jobs slip through the cracks. Had the shooter in Aurora or in the
    Giffords case been through the Adjudication process they would have been disqualified from legally purchasing firearms.How many more time bombs are walking around out there that are slipping through the cracks because no one will intervene on the person ?

  • Gravelyvoice Jim


    Here are the issues we need to address with mental health screenings:

    1. If someone has broken no laws, should the government be allowed to infringe on his/her rights without due process? Courts should be determining guilt or innocence under the law, not whether someone MIGHT break the law (I suggest you watch the movie “Minorty Report”).

    2. Which government bureaucrat, group of bureaucrats, or politicians will we entrust to define the standards for being “nut job” for us, then deny our 2nd Amendment rights? I’ll suggest the Stalinist solution – Since most people writing on this blog are considered “right-wing nut-jobs” by those in power in the federal government today, should we start there?

    Liberty, at times, can be very messy. I do agree that a good place to start is to enforce existing laws, not make new ones; like I said earlier.

    Why has 10 rounds become the limit to which YOU WILL ALLOW ME TO HAVE? That’s sounds very dictatorial to me.
    At some point in time when they’ve been successful in incrementally destroying the 2nd Amendment, they will drive the number of allowable rounds down even more and 10 rounds will be the demonized “large capacity” magazine.

    “I don’t think it’s smart to accept the left’s language of “assault rifle.”

    Warning, he who controls the meaning of the terms, controls the outcome of the debate.

    The left defines “assault rifle” as any rifle that is sufficiently icky.

    I have a Ruger Mini-14. It has a nice wood and looks friendly, like some old farmer might own to shoot varmints with from time to time.

    I have a AR-15. It looks evil.

    Both shoot the same exact bullet and have the same exact lethality. Putting aside how easy it was to make an AR-15 “compliant”, under the old AWB, one was an “assault rifle” the other not.

    But consider the following report from a 1862 report by the commanding officer of the Washington Navy Yard on the Henry rifle:

    “187 shots were fired in three minutes and thirty seconds and one full fifteen shot magazine was fired in only 10.8 seconds. A total of 1,040 shots were fired and hits were made from as far away as 348 feet at an 18 inch square target with a .44 caliber 216 grain bullet”

    cite: Rifles: An Illustrated History of their Impact, by David Westwood, page 74.

    So, the AR-15 is only the current fixation of the liberal madness. Futher, this is a matter of deep ideological belief, because to liberals, government is their god and the armed citizen who is determined to resist a tyrant is a direct threat to that concept.

    Would ol’ Piers mind if we called the Magna Carta his little piece of paper? Probably not, since the left wants to rewrite every important document giving people their rights to ones that limit or take away rights.

    Mr. Pierce:

    I would not dream of judgin or punishing you, except to say that you were born from the behind of the devil, are full of devils, lies, blasphemy, and idolatry; are the instigator of these things, God’s enemy, Antichrist, desolater of Christendom, and steward of Sodom.

    Piers, I think is in an area over his head. I think he at times believes what most believe that if and when this nation is put in a position of a tyrannical government they must be able to defend. I cannot believe that Piers would want to be left in any other position, without any means of defense, or with something that is of less worth in his defense other then a sling shot compared to what the other side is using against him. He has to have half a brain cell left. To know that what he is out there proposing is dangerous to himself, the people he loves and every other in this nation. That if they take what they propose, limit all that is required for operation, or totally stop its flow then this nation is defenseless against the high caliber, sub weapons that could possibly come knocking. Piers is in a position in his network that he must do as I say. He cannot stray from his script or form or he will be on the outside looking in. He knows who butters his bread. He will not under any condition eat plain bread without any topping or worse no bread at all. He will follow his script. Maybe, just maybe, he is allowing said guests to appear not only for ratings but for something all together different ? Maybe it’s to appear as if he is trying to force confiscation but allowing the other side to come on and get their points out, awaken the masses of why and what can come if it happens. Piers knows what took place in the UK. He knows the stats, even though he gives fake, sham ones. He tells the public to check them on Google. Well there in and of itself, is where and he knows they will find the truth, of the sham numbers. Showing just how high crime truly is in the UK, violent crime is through the roof per 100, 000 people. Much higher per capita then the US. I think Piers is sending the people a message in an indirect way. Sending them to look up numbers that will blanket the true numbers and reveal the real numbers. He I think may be helping the cause more then hurting it…

    Piers Morgan is a liar at the core of his very being. He quickly slips away from any discussion of the left’s intentions, refusing even to comment on the observation that the left wants all weapons banned. He will not discuss whether his proposals will make any difference in these sorts of events, but picks apart any suggestion made by anyone else. He responds to the accusation that he is a bully by bullying — “How DARE you say…?”

    This is a disgusting human being.

  • the left doesn’t want to take away the citizen’s guns to fight crime. they want to take away the citizen’s ability to resist government tyranny. once a leftist government has disarmed their citizens they the real murdering starts. then the murdering of the millions start.

    The mental health argument is a dangerous solution if not closely restricted. History is full of example of government using it to silence the opposition.
    Many states require that children in foster care or state run institution receive mental evaluation, are they now going to be denied their Second Amendment Rights? Law Enforcement Officers receive mental evaluations after being involved in shooting resulting in the death of someone, are they now no longer to be trusted with a weapon? Vets exposed to concussions received in service are now exposed to be declared mentally deficient (note the current trend saying football players may be mentally unstable after so many head injuries). Are all vets ever treated for suspected PTSD now subject to losing the Rights they have helped preserved for us, even if found competent? Is any type mental treatment going to be a life time sentence to second class citizenship? Look closely at the current forms you fill out when purchasing a weapon. The question is simply have you ever been treated for mental issues, no mention of the diagnoses or if you are on meds for treatment, or declared normal. Federal bureaucrats are not to be trusted with the responsibility of determining the peoples mental status, as OBAMA care has demonstrated doctors should not be trusted with federal mandated diagnoses. States are the powers we must trust in these matters. After 14 years with a major Sheriffs department, I know investigators will look for any bit of information that will allow them to declare the suspect was in violation the law because he or she owned a weapon, just another charge to stack on the charges to insure a conviction on what otherwise might be a weak case.

    Teejaw: “I don’t think it’s smart to accept the left’s language of “assault rifle.” They win if we adopt their slogans.”

    Another tack, debase their definition of assault (as they debase definitions of compassion and marriage and even fiscal responsibility): Let’s call knives assault knives and vehicles assault vehicles and so forth. They when the liberal cries foul, you can argue how most everything can conceivably be called assault ..

    The Constitution is the final answer. Don’t be willing to engage ignorant people in mindless, endless arguments. Instead, tell them to read the Constitution and keep reading until they get it. Our rights are God Given, therefore they are not optional.
    I can’t imagine anyone stupid enough to give up their freedom because Piers wants us to be enslaved by bureaucrats.

    It’s not because of the fear of government tyranny. Remember the LA Riots? I do. We all should. 2003 people attacked and injured. 227 critically. No telling how many rapes. Reginald Denny could have used an assault rifle. The Korean shop owners standing on the roofs of their stores with assault rifles was enough to keep the looters away. No one can guarantee me that won’t happen where I live so I plan on keeping my guns.

    Mr. Piers Morgan should study the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Here is a quote from Wikipedia:

    “About 700 British Army regulars, under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, were given secret orders to capture and destroy military supplies that were reportedly stored by the Massachusetts militia at Concord.”

    Mr. Morgan says it’s “absurd” to think that our government could be tyrannical. The colonies were under the rule of the Crown for 169 years. Even when the American Revolutin began most of the colonies were hoping for an agreement of representation and not rebellion. Does Mr. Morgan really regard as absurd that history time and time again repeats itself?

  • Leo

    That must be the stupidest argument ever. Semi-automatic weapons as a way to resist a tyrannical argument is at best narcissistic and at worst idiotic. Governments have F16s, tanks, and nuclear bombs. The idea that you can resist using a semi automatic is ludicrous and malarkey sold by people who simply like to argue for the sake of argument.

I consider it malarkey sold by people who simply like to argue for the sake of argument. All they do is sell a certain image at the expense of the occasional mass murder. And if I want to be honest the right answer to Mr Shapiro’s question is that yes all handguns should be banned. There is a reason why our murder rate is 10 times larger than any other developed country. I know this has no chance of passing given the stringent rules for changing the constitution but that does not mean we should not be trying.

    After Piers pulled out the 6 packets of Sudafed, I would have LOVED it if Shapiro pulled out a pack of Marlboro’s, placed it on the desk & said – “cigarette smoking kills 400,000 people a year in the USA, 10 TIMES the number of ALL gun deaths so why is smoking still legal, why
    doesn’t the left care about all those people”?

    “Never let a crisis go to waste” is the lefts motto. The fact that they’ve stood on the graves of these children in order to advance their political agenda is disgusting. But many hard core lefties are disgusting, selfish people. Most are hypocrites and use projection when speaking about racism. It’s too bad the media has been absorbed by the Democrat party, the amount of complete BS that’s out there in discussion right now would be laughable if it weren’t so sad & scary….. I live in New York, can’t move till my 2 children finish High School, then it’s 1) Off to Texas….2) Batten down the hatches. Cant wait to leave this freakin state.
