Alert Piers Morgan: 13-month-old shot in ‘new America gun atrocity’

Is there a United States citizen more committed to liberating law-abiding Americans from their firearms than CNN’s U.K. import Piers Morgan? He does offer a special non-citizen’s perspective, allowing him to alert us to things like the latest American gun atrocity that otherwise would have gone unnoticed.

Obviously, the heartbreaking fatal shooting of a 13-month-old baby and the wounding of its mother by two teen thugs demanding money in Brunswick, Ga., is nothing short of an atrocity. Sadly, we’re to the point where the shock of hearing such news is quickly eclipsed by gun control lobbying. Many of Morgan’s followers, though, were quick to point out that none of the gun control proposals he’s backed would have prevented it.

Update:

We’re hearing word of more knife violence in the United Kingdom. When will Parliament do something about Brits and their sharp object culture? Piers, you’re needed back home ASAP!

  • Brandon Goeringer

    Piers Morgan is a turd.

    • RedDog

      Brandon, your statement is highly insulting to turds.

    If you don’t like what Piers Morgan has to say, just BOYCOTT him! It’s that simple!

    • http://twitter.com/Thor_Odinson ThorOdinson

      We don’t need to. His ratings speak for themselves. He’s being beaten out by RuPaul of all people! And yet for some reason CNN still keeps him on. I guess they’re running a charity for any British expatriates who can’t go home without being brought up on criminal charges for wiretapping. It’s mighty kind of them, when you think about it.

      If he makes his statements in a public forum, should the public not have every right to discuss said comments? Boycott him? Look at his ratings, he’s been boycotted for quite a while now.

  • Saar

    Someone on another news sight brought this up; Wheres the outcry from al sharpton and jessie jackson? Oh wait that’s right, these punks killed a Caucasian baby so that isnt news, reverse the roles you see how much of a hypocrite the progressive liberals are – who are heaping and forcing race division and hatred against whites.

    Also screw morgan.

    • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

      I didn’t realize the perps were black. Yes, if it was reversed Rosanne and Spike Lee would be giving out their parents’ address on Twitter.

      • Elaine

        You didn’t realize it because it is only mentioned when the victim is black and the perps are white. We need to start holding EVERYONE accountable.

    • Judy B

      Morgan probably has to pay big bucks for that!

      • Judy B

        & I need brain bleach at the thought.

    • Orlando Cee

      There is still hope. In the same way CNN and MSNBC claimed the “real” victims of the recent rape may have been the high school athletes, perhaps race hustlers Sharpton and Jackson can “spin” this story in that the teenagers were merely asserting their rightful place in society…by killing a baby.

      Stranger things have happened. Look at who we have in the White House, for example.

  • Canadian in USA

    Of course Musket Morgan would go after the guns and not after the criminals.

    • CatHerder

      Aber naturlich. It’s the hardware’s fault. If they’d knifed the baby it’d be blade control. This is how the control freaks roll.

  • aPLWBinAK

    Progressives are scum. Instead of asking why kids like these two are growing up feral and amoral….they try to leverage the despicable acts of said kids to strip us of our rights and freedoms…..scum….

    • http://twitter.com/BrianPHovland Brian H (wackobird)

      What an accurate and interesting way to look at this. I admit, I never put it together quite like this. But it certainly is Leverage, no question.

    • Paladin

      I find the way you insult scum offensive.

      • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

        Indeed. Most scum yields readily to a little detergent and elbow grease.

    • sodacrackers2

      Instead of admitting that their “progressive” policies are what have created these feral and amoral kids. Check out their communist associates and affiliations before you vote!

    • Kabong30

      Progs and libs don’t give a tinker’s damn about “the kids” until they are old enough to vote. And honestly they don’t care if they’re feral as long as they come to the trough to feed and pull the lever to vote for more free food.

      • Elaine

        Someone tell ME what kind of parents these two boys had? They have no feelings and no conscience! This isn’t about the weapon, it’s about the lack of scruples and humanity in them. How much hate is in you to be able shoot a baby right in the face and feel nothing? Let’s talk about getting back to basics and teaching right from wrong!

      • Orlando Cee

        “And honestly they don’t care if they’re feral as long as they come to the trough to feed and pull the lever to vote for more free food.”

        Ain’t that the truth? Does anyone really wonder why Big Zero wants to open the floodgates to illegal immigration? More voters for more free food!

    • Judy B

      Nail on the head, feral & amoral, the real root of the problem, the left won’t address it, as it would expose their promotion of secularism (read immoral)

    • Michael

      Check no farther. These two feral and amoral “yoots” were following the dictates of the New Black Panther Parties King Samir Shabazz who in a speech stated:

      -“I hate white people. All of them! Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him! You want freedom? You’re going to have to kill some of them crackers! You’re going to have to kill some of their babies.”

      This same person is one of the Black Panthers standing with a baton in front of a polling place in Philadelphia threatening voters.

      The one Holders Injustice Department refused to prosecute.

  • CR

    Yup. It’s the guns. Not the kids (because that would require personal responsibility), the parents or the culture of violence. If these kids had been shot by the mother before getting their own guns out, you can bet the media would be screaming about how they were just nice misunderstood kids harassed by the system.

    • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

      That’s exactly what would have happened. I’ve witnessed that time and again. In Virginia Beach cops ended up killing a 17 year old who after a high speed chase tried to get free by running over a cop. The media couldn’t wait to stick a microphone is his mommy’s face so she could wail and moan about what a good boy he was. Turns out he had a rap sheet a mile long as a regular in the revolving door of juvenile hall. These kids should hang from a rope. Until we start making vicious murderers accountable, this will continue unabated.

      • aPLWBinAK

        Agreed. But we as a society need to hold the parents to account for bringing these punks up with no morals….that wailing mommy you speak of should of been asked why she was raising a son with a mile long rap sheet….

        • CR

          That mommy was just setting herself up for the civil suit she was going to bring against the PD. Forget accountability, she probably walked away w/ a multi-million dollar settlement depending upon who she got on her jury…

    Piers is disappointed that the baby wasn’t old enough to have a cell phone that he could hack.

  • $45875941

    Disgusting tragedies like this bring tears to my eyes. A baby for God’s sake! These punks deserve the death penalty. And don’t give me that shit that “they’re just kids, they don’t know any better.” At 14, in Chicago I built a gas engine mini bike from a bycicle frame by myself. 7 days after I turned 17, I was in Marine Corp boot camp! So yes, prosecute as adults. It might just help end some of this, whereas all the gun laws in the world won’t. Piss Moron……absolute despicable piece of shit!

  • R.C.

    If the mother was armed the outcome could have been no worse. I cannot grasp the willful stupidity of the left. Truly a mental disorder.

  • Maxx

    Using Morgan’s continuing flawed logic, we must blame the Camry when a 90-yr-old from Boca mistakes their brake for the accelerator pedal and rams into a Dunkin Donuts, the Supra when it slams into a tree during an illegal street race and of course, the Pabst Blue Ribbon bottle for the drunk driver.

    What is this perverse liberal obsession with assigning responsibility for criminal behavior to everyone and everything BUT the criminal?

    • V the K

      Using Pier Moron’s “logic,” the next time a drunk driver kills someone, we should reinstate Prohibition.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.a.white.16 Joseph A White

      So next time my son sneaks my car and wrecks it, I’ll go and beat the dog snot out of his younger brother who stayed at home studying. That is liberal logic for you.

      • Hiraghm

        no no no… liberal logic is beating the dog snot out of his younger brother just in *case* the older brother sneaks the car out and wrecks it.

        or better analogy… selling the car so that neither son has access to and can’t sneak / wreck it.

  • Aine

    These animals are a graphic argument for conceal carry to be legal everywhere.

    • Hiraghm

      any law barring concealed or open carry are unConstitutional. Meaning.. it IS legal everywhere, if we could just get a SCOTUS honest enough to say so.

  • Steve_J

    Standing on the graves of the dead just to try to generate some lousy ratings. Morgan is nothing but a putrid pile of excrement,

  • Stacey Farr

    Brunswick is about 50 miles south of where I live. I had a sinking feeling when I heard about this that it would make national news and immediately be used to advance the gun grabbers’ agenda. Looks like I was right.

  • Steve_J

    In Britan they don’t need a gun. http://nyti.ms/1010B1a

  • Hcklbery

    ALL this hoopla over the M15 or “assault” is smoke; a diversion; to get their foot in the door for legal precedence to bar all weapons possession.

    Show me a gun that ain’t a weapon designed to “assault” and I’ll show you a paper weight.

    • Hiraghm

      And even a paper weight you can use to assault someone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.a.white.16 Joseph A White

    Its against the law to buy ANY caliber or type of gun when one is only 15 and/or 17 years old. Criminals will not obey laws. ANY laws. Piers Morgan is nothing short of a morbid ghoul, who thinks he is being cutting edge & useful by attempting to shame law abiding American Citizens out of their God given right to protect themselves and their families. Had this woman been armed, the outcome might have been much different.

    • Hiraghm

      Wait… you mean a 14 year old can’t buy a glue gun? A 17 year old can’t buy a caulking gun?

  • sqeptiq

    Oh, please. There’s nothing shocking about this or any murder. Just another day in America. Let the bodies pile up.

    • Hiraghm

      Had these boys done their thing 13 months earlier, they wouldn’t be up on charges of a “disgusting atrocity” murder.

      They’d be up on charges of performing an abortion w/o a license.
      But it wouldn’t be a “disgusting atrocity”, would it?

      • sqeptiq

        I don’t think any murder in America is a “disgusting atrocity.” Life is cheap here. No sense in getting bent out of shape.

        • J. Cox

          You know who has made life cheap?The same ones who created the KKK,the same ones that put abortion rights over human life.You and your ilk created this culture of death,and it is so fitting idiots like you are so blase about it.Congrats on making this “normal”.Congrats on not having a ounce of humanity…..but do keep telling us how loving and tolerant you are as you help rip another child out of the womb.

          • sqeptiq

            Quit your shrieking and buy a gun if you want to protect yourself and your family. You worry about your own; I’ll worry about mine. I don’t owe you anything.

          • J. Cox

            I guess other than being a troll,everything else in life,including reading comprehension is tough.Please tell me where I said you owe me anything you soulless twit.Once again you have come to a thread and made a complete arse of yourself,while only proving our point.Go back to your abortion mills and cheer on death,while espousing your non principal,no moral compass “values”.How sad of a life you must have.

          • sqeptiq

            I blame the mom. A responsible parent wouldn’t have have taken her baby out for a stroll unarmed.

          • Hiraghm

            Good point. Anyone who goes out unarmed (and as blind to her environment as most women seem to be) is guilty of negligence.

          Are you, by chance, pro choice?

          • sqeptiq

            I’m simply indifferent. I’m certainly not pro-life. That’s a phoney position of conservatives who claim to love babies, but only as long as it doesn’t cost them a penny. They don’t want to pay taxes or chip in to charity to support poor kids.

          • Hiraghm

            If I have to pay to support the kid, I want final say in how he’s raised. I didn’t get the fun of making him, why should I have the expense of raising him?
            If the baby is inconvenient, why did the female perform the act which purpose is to create the baby? Why should she be allowed to commit murder in order to avoid her responsibilities?

            I’m just for equality; if she can murder a baby as an inconvenient consequence of her lust, why can’t I or someone else murder a banker as an inconvenient consequence of buying a house I can’t afford?

          • sqeptiq

            You want to kill? Hop to it! I’m not stopping you.

        • VerminMcCann

    This is a GUN atrocity? No, this is a PARENTING atrocity. Who raised these little monsters? Where is their mother, father? Does Piers actually think that the threat to society is the gun that was in their hand and NOT the evil little murderous takers themselves? What a simpleton.

  • Lady_Penguin

    Someone (further down the comments) referred to these two pieces of human trash as “feral” and “amoral” and that about sums them up correctly. These are the same type of vermin, who the left – liberals like Piers Morgan, enable to walk like Satan on this earth. Liberals like him, and the Democrats want the criminals walking the streets, all the while hating the decent and good people. Twisted minds, twisted minds.

  • Allison

    I love your work but I am kinda offended by this:

    “Obviously, the heartbreaking fatal shooting of a 13-month-old baby and the wounding of ***its*** mother …”

    The child was not an “it,” *he* was a boy. Using terms like “it” to describe a child, both preborn and unborn, dehumanizes the person and makes them a thing … an “it” rather than a “he” or a “she.”

    • Hiraghm

      This is a result of the creation of PC English, along with such linguistic atrocities as “chairperson”.
      Pre-PC, if the sex (not gender) of the child were unknown, the pronoun “he” would be used.

      • TexSizzle

        As you indicated, “gender” is another of those misused PC words. When anyone says that I’m of the male gender, I tell them, “No. My gender is masculine. My sex is male”. And if they ask the gender of a baby, I reply, “He/she is too young to have formed a gender identity.”

  • RedSoloCup

    Piers, blow it out your ass.

  • VerminMcCann

    Next you you wingnuts are going to tell me is possible to kill a baby without a gun, right?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

      Right, because Munchhausen by proxy and abortion are just made up lies by the “wingnuts”.

      • VerminMcCann

        Good lord. Some virulent strain of retardation has infected the right side of the blogosphere lately. You have to know that I wasn’t actually claiming it’s not possible to kill a baby without using a gun, right?

        • ZoulKyud

          Your sarcasm wasn’t missed. However the problem is in this day and age its hard to tell. Your comment looks like a typical liberal comment actually. In fact I have seen comments in reality that look like yours. With no hint of sarcasm.

          • VerminMcCann

            Well, clearly, some people missed the sacasm. I agree with you that liberals are nearly impossible to saitairize–that’s usually the case with fundamentalists. But that doesn’t change the fact that, by uncritically ruling out the possibility of sarcasm, the right risks becoming what the left is. Arguing that a baby can’t be killed without a gun is so stupid that is should evoke a high degree of skeptisism, especially on a site like Twitchy. Failure to recognize the snark is only a few steps removed from the left’s wholesale adoption of the the claim that Romney wanted to outlaw vaginas, or whatever the hell claim was the basis for the Democrats’ War on Womyn nonsense.

      • VerminMcCann

        And honestly, why bring up abortion and Munchhausen by Proxy? Have you never heard of cricket bats? Pitchforks? Strangling? Gun control won’t stop people who want to kill babies from doing so because babies are easy to kill. Liberals often ignore such facts and claim that gun control would prevent the deaths of babies, etc. By explicitly pointing out the fact that the liberal argument deliberately overlooks, I was pointing out a flaw in the argument. I referred to the readership as wingnuts because I was pretending to be a liberal for the sake of the bit.

        See the point now?

        Edit: And lest I be accused of pretending to be a leftard pretending to be a rightwinger, here’s my twitter spew: https://twitter.com/VerminMcCann

  • Jeff Thiel

    St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

    ST. VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE, 1929Posing as police officers conducting a routine raid on February 14, 1929, four men entered a warehouse at 2122 N. Clark Street, used by George “Bugs” Moran and his gang to store liquor. The impostors lined up six gang members and a hanger-on against a wall, produced machine guns from under their overcoats, and opened fire.

    The prime suspect was Al Capone, head of Chicago’s crime syndicate. Moran’s North Side gang, the largest obstacle to the Capone organization’s power in metropolitan Chicago, had hijacked Capone’s liquor shipments, competed in protection rackets, and murdered Capone allies. Law enforcement officials could not prove any involvement by Capone, who was in Miami at the time. No one was ever tried for the killings.

    The raid’s cold-blooded efficiency left the public in shock, and the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre came to symbolize gang violence. It confirmed popular images associating Chicago with mobsters, crime, and spectacular carnage. The site of the warehouse, razed in 1967, continues to draw tourists from around the world.
