CNN host and all around rude Brit Piers Morgan had John Lott Jr. back on again. Had he given the opportunity to Lott to actually engage in discussion about gun control laws and their complete inability to curb human depravity and the ability to murder, he would have been spanked just as he has been on previous occasions by others. However, Lott was hardly able to get a word in edgewise.
Morgan attempted, once again, to mix apples and oranges and spin statistics showing more than half of all mass shooters in from 1982 to 2012 used either high-capacity magazines, assault weapons, or both This was used by Morgan in a sad attempt to push forward the “assault weapons ban.” Lott pointed to a study showing the effect of any assault weapons ban would be negligible. Morgan argued that it worked in Australia after one was passed following a mass shooting, but he didn’t want Lott to really respond to the issue and so he continued to talk over him.
Lott had to continuously ask Morgan, “Why do you have anyone on?” He asked the question in response to Morgan’s steamrolling of his attempts to answer questions. “You’ve been talking 90 percent of the time since the break!” Lott said. Morgan responded, “I’m going to keep talking, so I suggest you keep quiet.” Morgan charged Lott of trying to “change the question to one that suits you” instead of answering his question. Lott called Morgan a “cherry-picker” in response.
Morgan and Lott engaged in a heated back-and-forth over gun death statistics in Germany, which was begun by Lott. However, Morgan wouldn’t let him speak. “You want to go and talk 90 percent of the time,” Lott said. “Sir, you haven’t let me make a sentence. I have let you make many sentences here, you’ve talked most of the time.”
Lott argued that murder statistics in nations like Germany and England went up after gun control laws were passed. Morgan accused Lott of using statistics to suit his agenda. Lott said murder in England is a third of what it is in the U.S. Morgan scoffed at him and said, “Don’t be ridiculous! What an absolute lie!”
Morgan concluded the interview by insinuating Lott doesn’t care about the grieving Connecticut parents, to which Lott said that he has five kids, and charged that Morgan didn’t care about all the other people and how they die or are violently attacked.
But where the real agenda was shown was when Lott brought up a series of people who used guns to protect themselves and save others. As soon as he got on that, Morgan blurted in, “Shhhh, shhhh, shhhh” like the Nanny 911 and cut him off.
Seems that when people are allowed to speak on Piers Morgan Tonight, Morgan gets severely humiliated and his argument crumbles to dust. Though Lott only got to speak about 5-10% of the twelve minutes that he was on, he took out Piers’ gun argument jugular inside of the final twenty seconds. Well done Mr. Lott!
Personally, there are moments I would love to be on with Piers Morgan and remind him that we sent his great-grandpa and his buddies packing back across the pond a little over 200 years ago for mouthing off the way he is doing and attempting to do what he would like the Federal government to do today, confiscate our arms.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
