Piers Morgan vs. Gun Owners of America 12/18 -- PRICELESS

I have never heard this kind of language on broadcast news. Morgan called the head of GOA an idiot, stupid, a liar, and more. His guest called him a prick and a pastoral Brit.

And that was the mild part of the interview!

Morgan really clobbered the guy with his own words, and maneuvered him into revealing the ugly, ugly side of the gun culture.

Maybe you can catch the re-run.

1. Saw that. "You're an incredibly stupid man, aren't you?"

Said Morgan to Pratt.



Why, yes...yes, he is.

2. The Brits are disgusted by the attitude about guns in the USA in general

Remember that the police in Britain do not even carry guns.

There's plenty not to like about Piers but this shows a side of him to like.

20. Seriously. He actually said the alternative to arming school teachers is to sit and wait

to be killed. WTF???

That's the only other option he can think of? I can think of another one and it involves banning assault weapons and tighter gun control and permit requirements.

What a disgrace of a human being.

14. Most Americans shouldn't. And that probably includes you,

judging from your posts and the fact that you showed up only after the Newtown massacre.

16. Piers has been having an ongoing war with these folks on twitter. Some of his reparte has been

priceless.

Some pro-gun jerk tweeted to him that his being pro-gun-control meant that he was for rape victims being defenseless. Piers retorted that the person won "most moronic statement of the day"

17. It was sublime. I was no fan of Piers until he began this campaign

And to his credit, he's been on it since before the Newton Baby Massacre.

22. I hate to say it, but I have a new found respect for Piers Morgan.

He really knows how to tell the gun nuts to go to hell.
