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

    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.
    NONE OF THEM ARE AUTOMATIC WEAPONS.]

    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.]

    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.

    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.”

    http://www.courant.com/news/connecticut/newtown-sandy-hook-school-shooting/hc-lanza-gunjam-20121222,0,3580899.story
    ************************************************
    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.

    http://www.courant.com/news/connecticut/newtown-sandy-hook-school-shooting/hc-sandyhook-lanza-earplugs-20130106,0,2370630.story
    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…)

    for piers, once he got shapiro to repeat, for emphasis, that citizens have a right to arms in order to protect themselves against the government, that branded shapiro as just another conspiracy/survivalist nutjob. but, of course, shapiro is correct in pointing to historical fact that governments do indeed become tyrannical. just seventy years ago, nobody believed that a government would round up its citizens and send them to their deaths in gas chambers, but it happened. the genius of our founding fathers is, once again, evident in the fact that they believed it was imperative that the citizenry of the united states not be denied their right to bear arms and to form militias so that, should the occassion arise, they would be in the position to protect themselves.

    Yes…the scoffers don’t even admit the basics of the creepiness.

    So you don’t want to contemplate an evil government plotting human sacrifices to PUSH a gun grabbing agenda…Fine…I do because government assets would have to be used to carry out killings on such a grand scale…… …but it could also be a CULT of some sort based in Hollywood with members IN government playing satanic fantasy games without any order or knowledge of the military or politicians. …

    but this would mean a serious on going mass murder serial killing is taking place with an incompetent government blaming guns instead of getting down to the business of cracking another Charles Manson death cult runamuck. ….It also means the real planners of these genocidal mass murders remain free to kill again. …

    Anyone out there who works for government and has inside knowledge of any nefarious plots to move a gun grab agenda ….TAKE NOTE….YOU WILL DIE WHEN YOUR ORDER IS DONE TO KEEP YOU FROM TALKING…..AS SURELY AS SCOTT GETZINGER. ..STALIN KILLED MANY OF HIS OWN MOST LOYALISTS…..IS YOUR SHINY NEW LEXUS WITH TINTED WINDOWS AND FANCY PAD FULL OF HOOKERS WORTH IT ?

    Report: BBC Star Abused Hundreds of Children While Under NYT CEO’s Watch

    British police have finally issued their first major report on the criminal sex scandal that has rocked Britain’s TV and entertainment industry, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), for well over a year and the details are shocking.

    Late BBC TV and radio star Jimmy Savile is accused of physically abusing hundreds of children–the youngest of whom was just 8–as well as many young adults whom he met through his high profile charity work at various children’s hospitals throughout England.

    Savile’s crimes began in Manchester in 1955, peaked in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and continued at a lower pace all the way until at least 2009, two years before his death at 85.

    The police report concludes that Savile committed 214 criminal offenses including 34 rapes or other serious sexual assaults across England. 450 people have come forward with information about Savile’s crimes

    At the height of his popularity and fame, Savile was awarded a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth for his charity work with children, but all the while he was using that charity work as a means to sexually abuse at-risk kids targeting most of them at hospitals such as the famed Great Ormond Street children’s hospital in London.

    The report says, “It is now clear that Savile was hiding in plain sight and using his celebrity status and fund-raising activity to gain uncontrolled access to vulnerable people across six decades.” […………………….]

    Shapiro made a great point when he asked — why don’t you care about the young people killing each other in Chicago? No answer from Morgan. Sadly the deaths of young black teens are worth less than those of young white people.

    If you’re going to ban guns than ban all guns — otherwise ban the stimuli that creates a climate of violence. If the left is not willing to take this issue head on — then the left accomplishes nothing except to create an issue for the 2014 elections.
