Piers Morgan (a foreigner) is schooled by Larry Prat of Gun Owners of America. Piers shows his ignorance/ arrogance and lack of concern about the facts that show more guns equals less crime.
Piers Morgan to Larry Pratt, “You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?”
Mr. Pratt did not take the bait, calmly continuing to elucidate his argument. “It seems to me you are morally obtuse,” he told Mr. Morgan. “You seem to prefer being a victim to being able to prevail over the criminal element. I don’t know why you want to be the criminal’s friend.”
To which Mr. Morgan responded: “What a ridiculous argument. You have absolutely no coherent argument. You don’t actually give a damn about the gun murder rate in America.” (Mr Morgan said this after completely ignoring the facts presented by Larry Pratt, obviously showing his bias.)
A commentor said:
Piers Morgan cannot counter the arguments Pratt uses so his reaction is to call him stupid and his argument ridiculous.
Apparently, the argument that violent crime rates in areas where guns are allowed (as opposed to cities like Chicago with strict gun laws) are much lower in America than Europe is a “rather tortured argument.”
This passes for a civilized debate and “tough sledding” in Amerika. Politically correct emotions rule the day, not logic.
…Folks Steve has been saying for some time now, they are coming after our guns…your seeing the beginning of it now. If they are successsful , then we’re in deep trouble. Worse than you worse nightmare will shortly follow.
Here is one example of what Larry Pratt is talking about that Piers Morgan doesn’t want to see or you to see….
