Larry Pratt (Gun Owners of America) bests Piers Morgan

Another gun control debate where the knee-jerk reactionaries resort to name calling and emotional appeals — in contrast to calm-headed assessments of what is truly evil (certain people and policies which create victim zones).

Larry Pratt, the executive director of GOA, seems to be quite cool and calm, even laughing at the ridiculous claims of Piers Morgan who at one time or another during the badgering said the following things:

You are talking complete and utter nonsense….

What you just said, Mr. Pratt, was an absolute lie….

You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?…

What a ridiculous argument. You have absolutely no coherent argument whatsoever. You don’t give a damn, do you, about the gun murder rate in America. You don’t actually care….

It’s complete nonsense….

I know why sales of these weapons have been soaring in the last few days. It’s down to idiots like you….

You are a dangerous man espousing dangerous nonsense, and you shame your country.

I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that some twat from England is trying to lecture Americans on gun ownership rights after yet another horrific shooting spree occurs in a “gun free zone” (a.k.a. where all the unarmed victims are), or the fact that we’re supposedly not allowed to laugh at his accent-laden stupidity.

    Americans like Pratt (or yourself) really need lecturing on guns. Idiot.

      Hello anonymous Canadian (I checked your IP).

      We don’t need lecturing. And we won’t return to being subjects, because we have the right to defend ourselves from tyranny written right into our constitution. You are however free to disagree as much as you wish, but that right is also written into our constitution.

        Psycho. Stalking people’s IPs? I assure you I am from the UNITED STATES. The 2nd Amendment needs to be AMENDED. Your interpretation of it needs to be written OUT OF THE CONSTITUTION. Where do all you paranoid crackpots come from? We don’t need so many guns. Period. Especially assault rifles. What the F is wrong with you people?

        • Patrick Henry

          You are allowed to call him nasty names because people with guns protect your first amendment rights.

          Idiots.

    Just read your post and it makes me think you are a profound twat (Btw. I used to live in the UK).

      Thanks for calling me profound.

    Several thoughts…Is Piers Morgan a US citizen? If not, is there some way to deport him, maybe to some African nation with strict gun control? To call him a journalist is to insult the profession.

    The question about magazine capacity is not whether I NEED a 20 round clip, but why my government wishes to ban me from having it.

    Australia banned guns not for the sake of safety, but for their image in the eyes of the world.

    Rights are sometimes things we don’t often need, but when that need arises, it’s usually a situation that is pretty hairy.

    Even “reasonable” restrictions are restrictions. I don’t trust the government’s definition of reasonable, given it’s current state of corruption.
