CNN’s socialist import Piers Morgan is threatening “Deport me? If America won’t change its crazy gun laws… I may deport myself” from the United States and go back to anti-gun Great Britain where the crime rate is the highest in the European Union.
By-the-way, how is Piers leaving America a threat. It’s a gift!
Morgan believes if America’s guns are banned and America has gun-free zones, murders-by-gun will cease.
Can Morgan explain mass-gun murders in gun-free zones? This useless leftist cannot, so his reply to those asking this question is: “You are…unbelievably stupid!”
Morgan’s leftist stupidity spun into overload after the Newtown, Connecticut massacre. The gun-free zoned school reminds Morgan of a British school shooting that changed his mind regarding gun ownership laws: “The Sandy Hook massacre brought back such horribly vivid memories for me of Dunblane, the worst mass shooting in Britain in my lifetime.”
Dunblane’s massacre didn’t prevent Morgan from enjoying a high-powered sporting shoot-up:
I have fired guns only once in my life, on a stag party…a few years ago when part of the itinerary included a trip to an indoor shooting range. For three hours, our group were let loose on everything from Magnum 45 handguns and Glock pistols, to high-powered ‘sniper’ rifles and pump-action shotguns. It was controlled, legal, safe and undeniably exciting. But it also showed me, quite demonstrably, that guns are killing machines.
“Let loose on everything for three hours?” Sounds like a lot of pent-up aggression Piers!
Notice Morgan admits those “exciting,” “high powered rifles” were safe in his hands. That’s because guns only become killing machines against people when purposely used by evil people to commit cold blooded murder. Or, in the worst case scenario for every law-abiding citizen—shooting someone in self defense.
Morgan knows full-well people determine whether or not guns become killing machines, but he is purposely exercising the First Amendment as a weapon against the Second Amendment for left-wing anti-gun propaganda.
Morgan says: “If you [Americans] don’t change your gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous carnage, then you don’t have to worry about deporting me.”
Please! I’m turning blue waiting!
Morgan threatened America in a letter printed in Britain’s Daily Mail:
It’s no exaggeration to say that America’s unique fondness for guns pretty much got cemented by hatred of us Brits and the War of Independence. But the main reason the more fervent gun-rights activists give is a fear of their own US federal government using its army to impinge on their freedom. The problem is that America’s historical love of guns means the country is now awash with them – and with gun death.
America’s “fondness” for guns was born out of abject abuse by British Troops: They stormed our towns and homes because the king “…erected a multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance,” while seizing our property and people and “…protecting them [British troops], by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these States… [and]…depriving us in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury [and] transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses.”
Americans were arrested at will, tried without jury, and executed without evidence.
Americans lacked basic human rights. We were controlled by a tyrant king, prohibited from protecting ourselves from British troops, governors, and the crown that owned everything. The King “…plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.”
We were forced to manufacture British goods without compensation. We were forbidden the use of those goods we manufactured for the king and country, because the King was “abolishing the free system of English laws!
Americans enacted the Second Amendment to prevent government abuse against citizen’s fundamental human rights, not “let loose on everything” and shoot up the streets as Morgan suggests when claiming America is “awash with gun death.”
Morgan is gunning against firearms while blaming the Constitution: “unfortunately ambiguous wording of the 2nd Amendment is twisted to mean that anyone in America can have any firearm they want.”
The wording is clear. Anyone who can read can understand the Second Amendment: Clause One for a “well regulated militia,” Clause Two gives each citizen the “right to bear arms.”
Furthermore, Americans enacted the Second Amendment to legally own guns through written law, not anarchy! We never sought anarchy, not even war! Our Founders wrote letters for years, begging the king to allow us the basic rights of man. Something Piers Morgan takes full advantage of by living in the U.S.
Moreover, Americans are proud military supporters. Americans willingly join and fight against foreign invaders and those harming our allies. That is why the United States has an all-volunteer military.
Never mind facts, guns kill and Piers claims banning guns eliminates crime:
The ‘more guns, less crime’ argument is utter nonsense. Britain, after Dunblane, introduced some of the toughest gun laws in Europe, and we average just 35 gun murders a year.
Hoover Institute Senior Fellow Richard A. Epstein argues against gun bans preventing crime:
It is always hard to design licensing systems to stop dangerous behaviors like driving automobiles, controlling the sale of hard drugs, or using guns… The basic point here is that in any gun-free environment (such as that of Virginia Tech), the assailant knows that he will not meet with any immediate armed resistance, and this puts innocent people at risk.
The gun-lobby logic dictates that the only way to defend against gun criminals is for everyone else to have a gun, too. Teachers, nurses, clergymen, shop assistants, cinema usherettes – everyone must be armed. To me, this is a warped, twisted logic that bears no statistical analysis and makes no sense. Do you fight drug addiction with more cocaine? Alcoholism with more Jack Daniel’s? Of course not…This gun debate is an ongoing war of verbal attrition in America – and I’m just the latest target, the advantage to the gun lobbyists being that I’m British, a breed of human being who burned down the White House in 1814 and had to be forcefully deported en masse, as no American will ever be allowed to forget – Special Relationship notwithstanding.
Using the British Troop-Card won’t work Piers. The U.K. and U.S. have been allies since WWI.
As to gun lobbyists: They do not dictate our lives and demand we all own guns. Gun ownership is free choice.
If Morgan wants to leave America, leave, but stop fictionalizing gun statistics if you insist on living off of, and under, our Bill of Rights. And do Americans a favor: Stop insinuating that we hate the British because of two wars that happened two centuries-ago.
We Americans like Brits, notwithstanding Piers Morgan, whom we should use to get even with Libya—give them Piers Morgan!
