It was the Sandy Hook massacre that started Piers Morgan on his quest to end gun violence in America, but this week’s shootings in Chicago, usually overlooked by the CNN host, will have to be reason enough to kick-start his tireless campaign for federal gun control. Morgan has made the AR-15 the focus of his gun grab, so switching gears to Chicago, where handguns are the weapon of choice, will require him to broaden his approach. We think he’s still OK with each citizen owning a musket.

Note that the word “rights” is in what the Brits call inverted commas. Morgan likes Americans so much he’s willing to curb their Constitutional freedoms if it will help keep them safe.

So, guns need to be banned nationwide to keep them from reaching Chicago eventually? Then Chicago will be crime free?

It’s time to stop asking who will stop the violence in Chicago and start asking when Piers will take the problem into his own hands.

    I tweented Morgan several times a bet for Bragging Rights that crime & homicide rates will notably drop 6 Months after Carry/Conceal Law; he didn’t answer.
    I don’t know if he didn’t see it yet, or shaking in his Red Coat Boots that such a bet would make him a public loser.

        I’m still on the record that crime & homicide rates will be notably lower in Chicago after 6 Months with carry/conceal.
        Imagine how a 1,000 Law Abiding Citizens in the inner-city packing heat would change things.

          It will but Gov. Muppethead a.k.a. Pat Quinn is doing everything he can to subvert and change the CC bill or he won’t sign it. Legislation is working to veto it.

          The crime that is reported doesn’t tell half the stories of what’s really going on. Crime is Boystown & Wrigleyville is skyrocketing thanks to South and West side thugs invading the area. The news still hasn’t covered the gang of 30 black males attacking people on the lakefront on the 4th attacking and robbing people. The city is far more dangerous than what is being reported. You have to read blogs such as Crimes In Wrigleyville & Boystown to get a handle on what’s really happening:

            I would love to see 1,000 Law Abiding Citizens carrying Guns in the High-Crime centers of City of Chicago, just doing their daily routine and living their lives as they see fit; it wouldn’t take long for the bad guys to get a clue.

          • Steve

            The sad part is if any of these 1,000 law abiding citizens had to defend themselves they would be vilified by the media as another racist paranoid nutjob like they did to George Zimmerman.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004422431818 Sur Mar

            And if it was a black man defending himself from a criminal?
            I’m sure that there are more than 1,000 Law Abiding Blacks under siege in the Inner-City of Chicago who would love to carry a gun for self defense.
            That’s where I’d start to arm Law Abiding Citizens, right in the Crime Filled Inner-City where they live; then work outwards.

  • Tugger – not quite dead yet

    So, Piers said “There will be more mass shooting atrocities in America soon.”

    This sound like an internet threat to me. I understand people can be sent to prison for making these kinds of threats these days. Someone should call the police and report this threat by a foreign national.

    Someone should send Piers that photo of a hand made shotgun pistol out of Egypt. Ban the high quality, high precision, machine made guns and someone will find a broken handle, a piece of pipe and a few shotgun shells and they still shot up a rival gang and hit bystanders in the process.

    Take a lesson from Philly. Philadelphia used to ban carrying of guns. Then the state said it was against the states constitution and reinstated permitted gun carry inside city limits. 3 weeks later the crime had dropped 30% as if by magic. Guess no one wants to mug granny if there is a chance she is packing a cannon in her handbag.

    • ObamaFail

      I think the real issue is that libs are scared that if everyone has the right to carry a gun anywhere, mass shootings will be a problem of the past, and then they can no longer exploit the deaths of innocent people to push their Anti-Constitutional agendas.

      • Finrod Felagund

        That’s a big part of it; another part is that they are afraid that if the populace is armed, then they won’t be able to control the people when the government becomes overly oppressive. If only the government has guns, the government can never be overthrown no matter how despotic it gets.

    This is the latest illogical liberal canard being parroted by empty headed low infos. I’ve had the argument about a half dozen times since Sandy Hook, when I mention Chicago or DC, Indiana and Virginia are the immediate regurgitated We can see the utter fallacy at work when we watch places like All Around Pizza in Virginia Beach that gave a 15% discount to anyone carrying, that a bunch of guns in close proximity to each other do not spontaneously lead to deaths, in fact, no one was shot in or around said pizzeria on the day in question.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      The responses I get are usually along the lines of: “you’re not taking into account the socio-economic differences”.

      Since the society part is black American and the economical parts is poverty, my verbal opponents are trying to tell me the inner-city kids are too poor and too black to know better and therefore they shoot each other. That sounds awfully elitist and racist to me.

      • Stephen L. Hall

        Just ask them to separate out how many of these gun crimes are fostered by the drug trade which funds these gangs.

    Liberals never blame the person who uses the gun to commit murder. My guess is because the majority of the time, they are committed by Democrat supporters. The shootings that CNN and MSNBC have used the most to push gun control? All committed by Democrats.

    Piers Morgan ✔ @piersmorgan

    Chicago’s supposedly ‘tough’ gun laws are utterly pointless when states around it have weak gun laws. America needs to take federal action.

    Piers Morgan ✔ @piersmorgan

    8 killed, 30+ wounded by guns in Chicago since Wednesday. Who is going to stop this insanity?

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    1) So instead of addressing the fatherless, govt addicted and govt controlled black community … Piers blames the states around Chicago even though gun crimes in those states are low? That guy is an idiot.

    2) Is Chicago still a racist pejorative for black people and if so then why isn’t Chrissy Matthews talking up his code word/dog whistle stuff?

    3) Does he really think taking guns away from white Republicans in Texas will stop homicides in Chicago? This guy is an idiot.

    4) There’s only one thing all of those Chi-Town killers have in common …. their complete and utter lack of conservative values in their lives and the race-driving DNC wouldn’t have it any other way. The DNC tries to get them hooked on soul-robbing entitlements and discourage anyone who actually makes it out of the hood from articulating how self accountability and perseverance how been instrumental keys to success in their own lives. The fact that no one on the national stage has the wisdom or stones to talk about these epic and on-going racist DNC transgressions is a crying shame of the highest order.

    5) Again, the disgracefully racist DNC blatantly and publicly thumbs its nose at anyone in the hood who preaches self-accountability and some people wonder how once-great cities that have fallen completely under DNC rule turn into violent cesspools within just 3 liberal generations.

  • alanstorm

    Poor Piers – the answer is right in front of him, indeed, he refers to the two pieces of data he needs, and he can’t grasp it –

    Chicago – restrictive gun laws, many shootings.

    Surrounding cities and states – laxer gun laws, fewer shootings.

    The conclusion is left to the student as an exercise.

    More people died from heart disease, diabetes, car wrecks and suicide. Why is Piers Morgan so concerned about the minimal deaths from guns?

    If he is truly concerned about people, he would be addressing what is really killing us. Gun shots are not even a Top 10 Killer! Why not focus on suicide prevention? Cure for Cancer? Diabetes?

    Perhaps it has something to do with his handlers wanting to use fear mongering to scare Americans into giving up their guns so they can be utterly controlled… Perfect example of Mainstream Media being used to brain wash Americans into giving up their rights, and their power. Thank God we are WAKING UP!

    Gee PM, federal laws can’t prevent the US’s own agents (IRS, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc.) from breaking the law, what makes you think a federal gun law will keep criminals from illegally obtaining illegal handguns in a town like Chicago where guns are already banned from the streets?
