Ouch! Even Leftie WaPo Agrees: Piers Morgan Was Beaten Like a British Mule Last Night

It was a textbook thumping– Ben Shapiro was on with Piers Morgan Thursday 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 dominated 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.
Here’s the video.

It was such an embarrassing defeat for Morgan that even the Washington Post couldn’t cover for him.

Piers Morgan dismissed gun-rights advocate John Lott by scoffing at him.
Piers Morgan dismissed gun-rights advocate Larry Pratt by insulting him.
Piers Morgan dismissed gun-rights advocate Alex Jones by saying nothing.

And Piers Morgan struggled to find the appropriate strategy for dismissing Ben Shapiro, editor-at-large of Breitbart.com and a foe of extraordinary polemical agility. He started in on Morgan by contending that the CNN star had exploited the dead children of Newtown:

What you tend to do is you tend to demonize people who differ from you politically by standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook, saying they don’t seem to care enough about the dead kids. If they cared more about the dead kids they would agree with you on policy.

Patented outrage spilled from Morgan: “How dare you.” And then the conversation took a turn for the better, as Shapiro cornered the CNN host on a central disconnect of the ongoing gun-violence debate: Proposals are floating around to redo the ban on assault rifles, something Morgan supports.

    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)]

    Liberals never do have the answers and they hate the Constitution. I agree. Morgan should go home and annoy his own people. Leave us the heck alone.

    PAY ATTENTION..,…..Here is the latest CREEP OUT breaking…….The Batman Movie ” Dark Knight Rises ” not only has the word AURORA in big neon letters atop a sky Scraper…The town ” Sandy Hook ” appears on a map in a later scene ….>


    One of the men who produced the movie Scott Getzinger lived in Newton CT…I say LIVED because this 46 year old man just DIED in a head on car crash yesterday..,.>


    ALL of these mass killings are tied together in GREAT DETAIL….and players are being taken out just as in the Benghazi Scandal and Seal Team 6 after the Bin Laden raid.

    Even if the government is NOT plotting these mass murders to drive a political gun control agenda…there is some kind of sicko psychopathic game that is being played out on a very high level. A Scientology or Satanic death cults acting out organized lunacy…and the lunatic remains on the grass. …> http://youtu.be/Sy8iUI_ayuo

    Connecticut Murderer Did NOT Use Automatic Weapons

    [These are semi-automatic weapons only, which is a fancy way
    of saying they fire one bullet every time you pull the trigger.

    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.]

    RE #9 —

    Two recent deaths a day apart: this 36yr.old and a 32yr.old who ranted on YouTube about Obama and gun control:

    Again the fuel for the flames of conspiracy comes from the Noveske Rifleworks Facebook page, where on December 27th, a mere week and one day before his death, John Noveske posted about the supposed links between psychiatric drugs and their use by school shooters.

    @ donh #9: Wow. At the very least, that’s creepy.

    What’s even creepier are people like the writer of the digitaljournal.com piece that you linked to who, while talking it down and insult those who read more into it, don’t even admit that it’s creepy.

    Piers never sacrificed a DAYUM thing for this country. The only “skin in the game” he has with America besides getting a pay check is his people were sent packing years ago by American patriots! He hasn’t shed any blood, sweat or tears for anything in this country. His whole show is based on attacking Americans, the Constitution and Americans on the Constitution. He is a blatant hypocrite, typical vile leftist that wants to limit the 2nd amendment while he stands firmly on the 1st amendment saying he has the right to say what he is saying.

    Look at his twitter page and see the photo he took with man-boy Adolph Jr and Moochelle. He is a typical American hating liberal who doesn’t know the Constitution, the lives willingly and unwillingly given to protect and serve the Constitution. He is the enemy to America in all ways possible. Piers, PSY and 0bama all share the same view on America which makes them the enemy!

    Where my opinion differs with Ben is that these are the times the 2nd amendment were meant for. Tyranny is now, not 50 or 100 years from now. If he can’t see that then he talks a really good game, but is blind to reality and the soft tyranny that gets harder each day we turn the other cheek. Each day those rights get weaker, tomorrow will we be weaker than today and so on. If we don’t do something about the enemy running the country NOW, we will be too weak when the so-called leaders of the right finally see a need for the true 2nd amendment’s intended actions.

    RE bg’s #2 — the link might include Charlie Gibson’s report early on (video of him) that there were 4 handguns found at the school with no mention of a rifle/shotgun…

    The controversy over the Left’s calls and the Feinstein proposal for gun restrictions has managed to obscure/distract from some very troubling inconsistencies…

    RE #9’s creepies — read an article yesterday that had about 4 creepies, couldn’t find it again, but this article has one of them that I don’t think was mentioned in donh’s link:


    In the 1999 Matrix movie, Neo’s passport expired on September 11, 2001. They have the picture of it at the link.

    There’s a lot of misinformation about the Newton shootings. The most reliable reporting seems to come from the Hartford Courant. According to their most recent articles Lanza had a shotgun (in the trunk of the car), a semi automatic rifle and two handguns.

    But there is far too much suspect info. For example, how do we know it was Lanza who shot his mother and then destroyed his pc’s hard drive? Why would a 20 year old kid think to do that?

    Anyway, here are some excerpts and links to HC stories.

    A source said that the Bushmaster rifle that Lanza used in the shootings is at the state police forensic laboratory undergoing several tests, including tests to determine whether it was jammed
    Lanza killed himself in Soto’s classroom with one of the two pistols he carried into the building. He killed himself as police entered the building.

    Police found a loaded 20-round shotgun in the trunk of the car similar to what is known as a “street sweeper.”

    Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza armed himself with hundreds of bullets on Dec. 14 before he entered the Newtown school. But he also did one more thing.

    He put in a pair of earplugs.

    Investigators don’t know whether the earplugs are significant to their probe, but they have speculated as to whether Lanza used them because it was a habit from shooting at gun ranges, or to muffle children’s screams during his shooting rampage.

    Investigators have not said how many shots Lanza fired with the Bushmaster semiautomatic rifle after he entered the school by firing half a dozen rounds through the glass at the school entrance. Sources said that he fired approximately 150 rounds during the shooting spree.
    Besides the earplugs, he was wearing all black clothes under a drab olive green utility vest with pockets filled with 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster.

    Lanza left a shotgun, capable of firing 20 rounds, in the trunk of the car. All of the guns were registered to his mother, Nancy Lanza, and appear to have been bought legally between 2010 and 2012, sources said.

    Police also found bullets outside the school in the parking lot, including some in at least three cars belonging to school personnel, including Rousseau’s car. Earlier this month, state police brought the cars used by the first Newtown police officers to arrive at the school back to the scene to try to determine if perhaps Lanza was shooting at them when they arrived. No police cars were hit and no officers have reported that they believed they were fired upon.

    Lanza’s killing spree started earlier that morning at his home on Yogananda Street in Newtown, where he killed his mother with four shots to the head with a .223-caliber rifle while she slept. In searching the house, police discovered that Lanza had thousands of dollars worth of violent video games.

    Before he left the house, Lanza destroyed the hard drive on his computer, which likely kept some of the records of what games he played and who he played with. It also destroyed any chance to see if he had a manifesto or had written down anything indicating that he planned the shootings or why he chose the elementary school.
    Lanza killed himself in Soto’s room using one of the two pistols he was carrying when he realized that police were closing in. He was still wearing the earplugs when police found his body.

    Where my opinion differs with Ben is that these are the times the 2nd amendment were meant for.

    While Ben didn’t say “these are the times”, he did hold to the truth as he stated a number of times in the debate that a tyrannical govt. was the reason for the 2nd Amendment and Piers was nothing but derisive toward him, ending the show on that note: “You actually think this administration would do something like that.” (“You stupid, stupid man.” like it was an impossibility…)
