“Tanks for the Memories”… Piers Morgan Debates Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes on Gun Control (Video) …Update: Piers Can Buy a Tank, Too… In Great Britain

“There Is No Such Thing As An Assault Weapon No More Than There’s Such A Thing As An Assault Unicorn”

Dana Loesch
January 16, 2013
Piers Morgan Show

Conservative radio talk show host, blogger, activist Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes, the news director for Tea Party News Network were guests on CNN tonight on the Piers Morgan Show. This was another blowout. Piers kept wanting to talk about tanks. That was weird.
Dana and Scottie did great, so good that Piers’ last line was “You people make me sick!”

For the record…
I can vouch for the fact that Dana knows her firearms.
I’ve been with her and husband Chris to the gun range.

UPDATE: Here’s a bit of information for Piers Morgan. You can buy a tank, too… back home in Great Britain.

    Now that was laughable. What a theater queen that Piers is! No wonder Dana couldn’t stop smiling! They were in the land of the absurd. Have guests on presumably for meaningful discussion and don’t let them get a word in edgewise. What a joke. No wonder no one takes him seriously.

  • dunce

    His effort to change the subject by the rhetorical device of reductio ad absurbdum failed. Atom bombs and tanks are not fire arms under any definition, but they are weapons of war.

  • Flintstone F.

    Piers forgets that along with the constitution the American people also have the Pledge Of Allegiance. We use the tools we need to move forward in our daily lives and respect our fellow Americans for doing the same.

    We use the appropriate tool and the appropriate force because we are a nation of laws and of people who respect the law.

    The founders were specific when they needed to be (the distinction between provide and promote) and broad when they needed to be. The right to bear arms means anything necessary to dispel an unwanted and unlawful advance, specifically in regard to the federal government.

    Piers: Why should somebody own an AR-15?

    Flintstone: Because it’s a tool I want to have in case I need it.

    Wow! With something that dangerous, maybe they should consider testing people before allowing them to drive, and perhaps issuing those who successful complete that test a plastic card that they have to carry around whenever they do drive. Something like a license … a driver’s license. Yeah. I like it.

    There are background checks when you buy a gun. There are state issued permits for concealed carry. So yes, it’s a great idea and one that had been implemented long before you pretended to be witty.

    The Second Amendment doesn’t say “firearms.” It says “arms.” And the term arms is very open … think arms race or arms control.

  • shadow

    Not if you by from a private owner.

    There are state issued permits for concealed carry.
    The process for getting a carry permit is underwhelming. One hour in a classroom; two minutes at the range; some $$; and you too can carry a loaded weapon.

    Are people in the US really this ignorant. The founding Fathers wrote what they wrote as they viewed the World at that time……The World has changed and firearm homicides are rampant…..pretty sure the founding fathers didn’t foresee that.

    Countries with strict guns laws in place i.e. you can’t own a gun without specific and approved reason, have significantly less firearm homicides. Why can’t people from the US figure this out and maybe look outside of your own four walls of a Country to learn a better way for once. The ignorance amazes me.

  • Lim Lynn

    I wonder who else Piers Morgan going to debate with after Dana Loesch. Seems the list is getting longer.

  • Josh

    No Alex your ignorance amazes me. The founding fathers wrote many things into the constitution with the future in mind. They weren’t morons. If you read any history at all you would know this about their discussions and other writings. As Americans we retain the right to defend ourselves. In all these shootings, if someone would have been able to pull a gun, there wouldn’t be the amount of deaths there were. There’s plenty of stories where these things are thwarted. The media just skips over them, just like you do. You obviously aren’t from America so just shut up and worry about your own communist, broke, getting bailed out every month Europe. You guys are garbage. You wouldn’t e anything without America. You’d all be speaking German. Think about that next time you open your moth against America you snob.

  • Flintstone F.


    There are reasonable measures in place for citizens to abide by, in exercising their constitutional rights. Driving is a privilege not a right.


    Please give me a break with your hyperbole. Our founding fathers didn’t say “firearms” they said “to bear arms.” That means anything necessary to defend oneself against the government. That was the purpose of the constitution and it’s most effective tool at the last line of defense is the second amendment. Take a look at the third amendment while you’re at it.

    Chicago and Washington DC have the most restrictive gun laws and the highest gun crime statistics in the nation. Overall in the US gun related homicides are down 50% over the last 20 years.

    Australia confiscated guns and saw violent gun crime rise 50%.

    The UK confiscated guns and saw violent gun crime rise 40%.

    I guess you were commenting about your own ignorance.

    I want an Assault Unicorn. I wonder where I can get one before they’re banned… hmmm.

  • verilie

    Stop getting derailed by Morgan’s “tank” crap gimmick.

    The 2nd Amendment context protected the right to privately built and owned WARSHIPS with CANNONS.

    Read: “Millions for Defense: Subscription Warships of 1798” by Frederick Leiner
    From the review: “As war with France seemed imminent, private U.S. citizens decided to help build a Navy. Merchants from Newburyport, Massachusetts, took the lead by opening a subscription to fund a 20-gun warship to be built in ninety days, and they persuaded Congress to pass a statute that gave them government “stock” bearing six percent interest in exchange for their money. Their example set off a chain reaction down the coast with more than a thousand subscribers in ten port towns pledging money and actually beginning to build nine warships with little government oversight
    Link amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Millions-Defense-Subscription-Warships-1798/dp/B008SM2J4W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358418630&sr=8-1&keywords=subscription+warships

    The context of the 2nd Amendment was the USA was primarily not a farming nation, but a sophisticated, multi-lingual, savvy, international maritime merchant nation, trading to Europe, Mediterranean, Philippines. Being armed on land and sea was literally life or death for individuals, crews and the economy. Unprotected ships were attacked, seized, crews and passengers killed, held for hostage payments or sold as slaves. Enough of the country bumpkin with the flintlock false narrative. Only part of the truth, the rest omitted. More man-on-the-street Americans in 1798 could rattle off the names and locations of all major ports of Asia from Shanghai to Philippines plus the going rates of their export trade products than any of today’s ill-educated, vapid, latte-indulged MSM.

    Do I have to get an NICS background check to buy an APC from the UK? Love to own one, but I think the shipping costs from the UK would be crazy. Plus the steering wheel is on the wrong side. 😉


    Shadow…a test is not a background check. You know, because a background check is looking into like your background.

    You can keep arms. Arms = something arm like or that can be held in your arms. So no tank, but should fired rockets should be fine.

  • TrickyDick

    If we make you sick then why don’t you leave you worthless limey bastard! I don’t understand wht anyone cares what a moron like Piers Morgan has to say.

  • DrEvil007

    Arms as understood at the time the Constitution was written meant the weapons an individual soldier would carry and use. Cannons were designated as ordnance. The Constitution does not mention a right to ordnance so it is a stretch to claim a right to artillery, tanks, atom bombs or even just rew served machine guns.

    A driver’s license tests a persons ability to operate a motor vehicle but it does not involve any background check as to whether they are are threat to the general public. AND, there is no right to operate an automobile in the Constitution.

  • Lim Lynn

    Your ignorance is very hard to be ignored. Background check done by law enforcement officers to check whether any potential gun owners credit history, past employment verification and have committed any crimes [criminal history].

  • Lim Lynn

    Volume of Piers Morgan’s voice irritating to my ears when he keep on interrupting Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes trying explain to him. He doesn’t make a fine host. Spot light should be on Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes. Viewers have already heard his points before so shut up a bit Piers Morgan if not the debate isn’t going smoothly.

  • flyoverland

    Sir Morgan seems stuck on the right to own a tank. A tank is not a weapon. A tank is a vehicle. There are weapons on a tank and those of particular calibers are already banned. The problem with owning a tank has nothing to do with it being dangerous, it has to do with the treads tearing up roads. I have a right to own a shotgun, but, I do not have a right to use that shotgun to destroy property. How long do you think Lindbergh Blvd. in STL would last if people were allowed to drive tanks out to the airport? The man has no common sense and is only trying to advance an unconstitutional argument.

  • bobbi

    This is Piers claim to fame. What a loser. All he does is interrupt his guests. He needs to get a life.

  • Sam Stone

    Obama and many others want better background checks and to include medical issues that may affect the firearm purchaser. Fine.

    Jessie Jackson Jr was RE-ELECTED to office WHILE confined to a mental hospital and had been for 5 months so confined.

    Does any reasonable American feel that those MAKING the firearm laws should NOT BE subject to the same mental health background checks? Those MAKING LAW should be subject to STRICTER mental health background checks than anyone else!

    I call on EVERY American to DEMAND from their elected officials a MENTAL HEALTH BACKGROUND check for all politicians, in office and running for office!

    What is good for you and me to simply exercise our guaranteed rights should be good for those making the laws.

  • Highlander

    shadow, you ignorance is exceeded only by your arrogance. You obviously have NO experience with getting a CCW permit, yet you insist on presenting yourself as an expert on the subject. It takes far more than a one hour class and two minutes on the range to get a concealed carry permit. I know, because I went through the process MYSELF. You jerks just can’t help yourselves can you? You’re spending HOURS here every day trying to spread lies and disinformation on this site, and for what? To satisfy some sick need to bicker with people? You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about, and you aren’t winning any arguments here… you’re just reinforcing our resolve to fight, and if you can’t see that, you’re pretty stupid.

  • Highlander

    shadow, nobody but jerks like Piers Morgan, and a few morons like yourself, are mentioning anything about tanks or artillery. We’re interested in protecting our right to own and carry firearms. Period. You aren’t going to win any arguments by insulting the millions of American gun owners with ridiculous accusations like that. In fact, you probably aren’t going to win any arguments at all, because every facet of your argument is flawed. However, if you insist on coming here to demonstrate your ignorance on this subject, you might want to take some time to consider the damage you’re doing to your cause with nonsensical BS like this … hysterical rhetoric and baseless accusations NEVER win arguments. They only serve to highlight your bias and ignorance.

    I see our statistically-challenged trolls are pulling statements of fact out of their a$$es again. The question of the role guns play in crime has been studied seriously for decades. Perhaps we should consult the people who have done this work. All of this has been previously posted, but the trolls don’t want to acknowledge this information.

    Impact of “shall issue” laws. A whole book of them. From 1998. http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/493636.html Sample below:

    “The effect of “shall-issue” laws on these crimes has been dramatic. When states passed these laws, the number of multiple-victim shootings declined by 84 percent. Deaths from these shootings plummeted on average by 90 percent, and injuries by 82 percent.”

    After another 10 years’ experience, “shall issue” laws found to be statistically significant in reducing the cost of crime. (published 2008)

    A little bit of information about the use of guns in our society


    … In fact, guns are used to defend their owners more than a million times each year, according to Criminologist Gary Kleck. Unlike Kellerman’s study, Kleck examined all reported incidents involving guns instead of just those resulting in fatalities. What he found was that when guns are used defensively, the overwhelming majority of the time they are never fired. Because no one is killed, these incidents generally were never considered by researchers such as Kellerman. If they were, he would have found that a gun kept in the home is twenty-seven times more likely to stop an attacker than it is to harm anyone—including the attacker.

    We could try to think of violence against the innocent as a real possibility, and deal with it as seriously as we have the threat from fire.

    Back in 2010, this was published:

    Preventing juvenile mass murder in American schools is the job of police officers, school teachers, and concerned parents

    “How many kids have been killed by school fire in all of North America in the past 50 years? Kids killed… school fire… North America… 50 years… How many? Zero. That’s right. Not one single kid has been killed by school fire anywhere in North America in the past half a century. Now, how many kids have been killed by school violence?”

  • This big brouhaha is the cynical misuse of a terrible event by this administration and its supporters to push for legislation they know ordinary Americans don’t want.

    How come when Hasan slaughtered American troops at Fort Hood, there wasn’t this big hoopla. Obama deemed it workplace violence – a big whoop in his book. He couldn’t use that slaughter to further his cause because a muslim committed a terrorist act, and it took other people with guns to take down the shooter – and it took a few bullets to do it too. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good gun with a gun.

    Piers Morgan should shut up – he is so stupid. Asking if you should be allowed to own a tank is like asking if Americans should be allowed to own a battleship or a fighter jet. He tried to hold his agression with Alex Jones, which was probably a good thing for him, but he goes after those women like only an impotent male would.

  • Joanne

    The Second Amendment was for the people’s protection against a tyrannical government – like the one in place in the U.S. at this very moment.

    “When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

    Obama wants a civilian force, under government control, as well-equipped as the U.S. military, not as well-equipped as the U.S. people. This is a tyrannical move on his part, and he stated this from the very beginning.

  • theBuckWheat

    The difference between a government and a sovereign citizen is that government can claim immunity from having to be held fully responsible for the full consequences of holding and using any weapon.

    Government is happy to hold every citizen fully responsible when he shoots someone else. The warning for civilian who discharges a firearm in public is that every bullet comes with a lawyer attached. But governments give themselves a pass. We only have to recall the 1999 incident in New York City when four plains-clothed police officers fired a total of 41 shots at Amadou Diallo and hit him 19 times. The officers were acquitted of all charges.

    But to the snarky question about owning a tank or a nuclear weapon. The Second Amendment was written to ensure that citizens could own the means to resist a government that had run amok. The issue with the tank is not the tank itself, but the weapon system of the tank. Given the range and destructive capacity of a modern tank cannon round, how few civilians could afford the cost of owning a tank and carrying sufficient liability insurance in case a round that was fired struck somewhere that was unintended? Not even Bill Gates could afford to compensate losses from a nuclear weapon being triggered, even though he may be able to afford, at least in theory, paying for the necessary security force to guard the necessary storage facility.

    To bring this to a real world issue, there are a handful of ex-military fighter aircraft in private hands. There is a tremendous liability issue with their ejection seats. Should a pilot have to abandon his aircraft while over an urban area the potential liability of having that aircraft crash into say a mall is horrible t contemplate. Government self-insures. It is a rare civilian who can.

    But questions about owning nuclear weapons are not honest ones. Piers Morgan says he is not opposed to a person defending themselves with a pistol or shotgun, yet he uses his own country, the UK as an example. That country has all but outlawed private ownership of handguns and given his rhetoric and ideology, I must assume that the instant that banning handguns in the US becomes politically possible, that Piers would be all for that as well.

    Happily, we don’t have to make war against the present federal government. When its outrages get to be sufficient, we can vote to dissolve it through a Constitutional Convention. But the whole reason for the stress we suffer from at this moment is that the present government has started to break out of the bounds of the enumerated powers and a lot of people, myself included, have material concerns that the Constitution no longer restrains our government, especially since it now can print the money it needs to function and no longer has to ask me to fund it.

  • This lardass is the reason why once great Britain is in the shape its in.

    “You people make me sick!”– really?

    Likewise, you SOB. That sentiment is mutual. Absolutely sickening that Piers Morgenputz got a gig at an American TV station that has deteriorated to a commie propaganda station.

    Piers Morgan forgets that our government gave many weapons, example: tanks, drones, surface-to-air missiles, to Egypt and Lebanon to help their citizens protect themselves from their own government. Why should this be any different. We have the 2nd amendment to protect us (U.S. citizens) from the over reaching government.

  • shadow

    Oh, goody. it can cut and paste.

    And understand what is says, which, apparently is beyond most here.

  • shadow

    You do understand automatic weapons (machine guns) are already banned?

    Which is precisely my point. If the 2nd Amendment is absolute, how can any firearm be banned? And if it is not absolute, then it is just a matter of opinion where the line should be drawn as to what is acceptable and what is not.

  • Flintstone F.


    It isn’t absolute. I have the right to say and do anything I want up to a point. A fully automatic weapon should not be banned. A nuclear bomb in a suitcase should be.

    The constitution doesn’t limit the definition of “arms” because the founders knew that at some point in the future we might need to re-define what is and isn’t reasonable. They preserved our God given freedoms, they didn’t attempt to solve all of our problems (they weren’t as insightful as Algore).

    Given that, they certainly want us to have power over the government. That doesn’t mean equal firepower. That means that if a dictator like Obama wanted to disarm us, it would be a very ill-advised proposition and one that would have grave consequences for anyone trying to do it. That’s the reason really, why someone like him would try to chip away at our freedoms bit by bit, as a fight in the chambers of congress is an easier fight than to take on the entire population of the US with military intervention.

    Now we just have to be more careful who we put into office.
