Piers Morgan Politicizes Aurora Massacre; Calls for Tighter Gun Laws

CNN’s Piers Morgan wasted no time this morning politicizing the mass murder in Aurora, Colorado. For those who don’t remember, CNN is a cable channel that used to report the news.

Anyway, Morgan took to Twitter this morning and wrote:

How very British.

One man with evil intentions should be used as an excuse to curtail the rights of every other member of a civilized society. This is what passes for intellectualism?

How is it possible that more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens can only result in more violence when history and facts tell us differently?

As I said last night on my podcast, there are over 8 million Americans with a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Since 2001, more states have decreased restrictions on firearm ownership. yet crime nationwide is lower than it has been in decades.

Disarming people isn’t how you stop violence. Perhaps the reason this man did what he did doesn’t lie in the ability for him to get a gun, but in the decisions he made in his life and the culture he grew up in.

    tighter gun control laws are EXACTLY what keeps weapons OUT of law abiding citizens’ hands and IN criminals’ hands. OH to live in the la la land of libs…

    Except that if someone ELSE in that theatre had a gun as well, that guy woulda been taken down before so many others had been shot.

    Even CBS News reporters have said this morning that “tightening gun laws are not the solution right now.”

    always going for the gun control laws.When are they going to realize that people kill,not guns.A lot of people own guns in this country,for protection,hunting,legal reasons.They don’t go out & kill innocent people with them.Wise up.

    They should just make murder illegal that’d stop it!

    Just enforce the laws on the books now….any tighter controls or restrictions of outlawing guns will only embolden the ‘whackos’…”IF GUNS ARE OUTLAWED, ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE THEM”

    of course he did. we all knew when we heard about this atrocity that calls for tighter gun control would be front and center in the MSM for the next few weeks.

    Piers Morgan: I call for more self-control from Liberals who can’t stop shooting their mouths off about gun control. You guys just added to your bloody body count. Anti-gun = pro-crime. Piers, you lead by example. You give up YOUR guns first. LIBERALS – you want gun control, you lead by example and turn your guns over to the government. Don’t waste our time when the thugs you protect so well come gunning for you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1045381045 Gerald Michael

    How about instead of gun control we have criminal control?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=705614866 Robert C Woolwine

    Well Piers is a Brit…of course he wants more gun control

    Piers Morgan needs to be reminded that private citizens have NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to protect his sorry butt if they see him being attacked a violent criminal, he’s tangled up in a car wreck, his house is on fire, etc.

    turning a tragedy into a political agenda is sickening(shameful),and agreed Jennifer,a gun by itself is harmless it takes putting it into the hands of idiots that make them dangerous.

    Bull! I went to high school less than a mile from that theater. My brother still lives there across the street from Gateway. I hung out at the Aurora Mall for years… There wouldn’t have been 12 dead if more people were concealed carrying at that theater. If more people conceal carried that guy wouldnt have had the balls to go in there even with a bulletproof vest on. I cant believe Piers has the gall to say that crap. Tighter gun laws would keep the guns out of the hands of the people that needed to defend themselves last night. And the fact that its not socially “acceptable” to carry into a theater probably keeps most people from doing it. It is perfectly legal to conceal carry in all counties in Colorado EXCEPT Denver County.

    If anything this should call for more decent law abiding normal people to obtain CCW permits and start carrying.

    He would’ve found a way to kill those people, guns or not. Norway can attest to THAT fact. These are the actions of someone who wanted to shock and pull in media attention. And its working.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=508879885 Shon Sands

    lol Don, Ill add that waiting for an event like this or 9/11 or Columbine to push gun control is a manipulation using fear. I find it sickening and low for anyone to use fear to try to control people (like our government?) but it happens everytime

    What a coincidence one of these things always goes off during a time when Washington communists like HITLERy are trying to ram gun-grabbing shit through Congress…Or not.
    Establishment “right” wasted no time in ginning up the warmongering propaganda, with one report saying police said the shooter was “an Iranian terrorist”.

    Well of course he did, he is British, he’s not an American. I believe we fought to separate ourselves from the British, because they were trying to take away our right to defend our selves, and our soverienty. So, this isn’t a big surprise to me.

    Doesn’t make any difference how many laws you pass. If the guy was a law abiding citizen he wouldn’t have shot 50 people.

    I say if more people carried guns there would be less of these acts or at least stopped sooner. Also I say it is a ploy by a liberal to have further excuse to ban guns. Also peirs Morgan go back to England.

    I’m not worked up – just asked two questions in a row…that you didn’t answer by the way. Piers is a Brit, so of course he’s for tighter gun laws. I’m only talking about the act of politicizing, which you are doing whilst saying someone else is doing only after someone else already did it. Don’t like objective thinking or reasoning to guide a conversational thread? Not hard to refuse to do so….oh wait, you don’t do that sort of thing anyways. You just call your site Liberty and then only post Right-Wing stuff without the intention of discussing to reach a conclusion, just to insult people on the other side of the aisle. You want progress? You want people to know why you have hard-lined conclusions? Talk and discuss, don’t just shout and try to mock all who attempt to discuss things with you. FB is a good resource for that, don’t you think?

    enforce the current ones before making new ones. can only lead to the government controlling more. besides Morgan is british so of course he`s gonna feel this way.

    Oh please Bryan. All the left does is a bunch of name calling and finger pointing any chance they get. Te posts on this page are in favor of the right, but to those of us on the right we feel the path to maintaining “liberty” is that of the conservative. The democratic administration has abandoned the constitution in more ways than 1, and we are looking down the barrel at a over taxed, over regulated socialist America. We are angry about what’s going on because of the dems, and this is a page we can voice that frustration. If you don’t agree with that the your free to vent else where.

    They can give up their guns; then that makes them an easy target; but don’t ask everyone to give up theirs due to an incident caused by one man. (lunitic)

  • James Otto

    Piers is a typical left-wing mouthpiece, spouting typical left-wing rhetoric.
    It makes very good sense to say that guns don’t kill but people do, and that outlawing guns ensures that only outlaws will have guns. It does not make good sense to say that it should be harder for a law-abiding citizen to obtain a firearm when (1) the original states refused to ratify the Constitution unless it included the 2nd amendment, (2) a single law-abiding citizen with a gun could have saved the lives of most of those who were killed and prevented the injuries which occurred, and (3) the police cannot and do not have to protect you.

  • Mark

    Stricter gun laws huh?

    I’m a Technical Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force with 13 years time in service, multiple decorations for meritorious service, a Top Secret SCI clearance, and a concealed carry permit… and I still had to wait over 3 days to buy a stripped AR-15 lower receiver (not even a whole gun, just a piece of one) at the Las Vegas gun show last month. Now tell me, does that make sense to you?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1623000453 Robert Watkins

    One concealed carry permit holder in the audience could have dropped this guy quickly and saved a lot of lives.

  • WhatConstitution

    “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Why is that so hard to comprehend?

    Because of the 2nd Amendment, every “gun law” on the books IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

    And finally, Ted Nugent is correct, “The Second Amendment IS my Concealed Carry Permit!” And so should say we all.

  • Defender of Liberty

    We tried gun control. Remember the 1994 AWB? It was an epic failure, and did not deter ONE criminal from buying a weapon. It did not affect crime statistics in any way, shape, or form. A criminal will get his gun, and not through Fast-n-Furious, either.

    Piers, go back to sucking the queen’s tit and stay out of our business.
