Earlier this week, Gov. Nathan Deal signed a bill into law that would expand gun carry rights for Georgia citizens. The news provoked outrage from Piers Morgan and other anti-gun zealots. Morgan’s CNN predecessor Larry King also sees this as a giant step backward:

“The wild, wild West”? Careful, Larry. You’re dating yourself!

As for the good people of Georgia:

    His point of reference being the fact that actually lived during the glory days of the wild wild west.

  • pinupartist

    The leftist city of Chicago reverts back to the Dark Ages, when life was nasty, brutish & short, by banning legal guns literally everywhere. What a city! FIFY

    Somebody change Larry’s adult diaper, please–it’s backing up into his brain.

    Truth is, aside from Hollywood Movies, the Wild, Wild West was rather quite and boring; violent crime was rather few and far between.

      And people generally left their firearms with the local police when they got into town.

        In Dodge City that was the law; but that city was known for all the crime it had.

        • Blake Waymire

          And even then, Dodge City still had less crime than NYC at the time.

      Don’t try to bring facts and logic into this. Soon the entire state will be having massacres as bad as gun-free zones have now.

  • Mr. Saturn

    Please Larry. An average day in Chicago is a more violent than probably the entire history of West. Though less giant mechanical spiders. I think.

    • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

      Words have meaning? This news will upset a lot of liberals.

  • Mary Mommy Happy 2016!

    Yet Democrat states with strict liberal gun laws and gun free zones still have high crimes rates and murders related to gun violence.

    So why not have citizens who follow the law and are honest people be allow to have a gun on their person to protect themselves Mr. King?

    • LegalizeShemp

      King and other lib-tards like to live in “gun free zones” where you step outside and bullets whiz past your head, usually fired by a Democrat Party constituent who hasn’t been helped by 50 years of Great Society liberalism.

    • Tim jones

      Georgia will probably soon realize the only thing that will keep the criminal population under control is basically a boot on their throat.

      Some people will not act like a person unless you make them.

  • Maxx

    Hundreds of thousands of men and women carry guns at their side each day and don’t shoot anyone. They’re called police officers. A citizen who carries has LESS legal protections than law enforcement so the claim that more guns automatically creates a “Wild West” scenario is so beyond imbecilic that it hardly warrants a response.

    Let’s just break this down to a simple observation. On any given weekend, it’s likely that more than a thousand gun-carrying people will walk into Gander Mountain and spend an hour or more walking around other people who are carrying. There will be no shootings. Just like there weren’t last weekend and every freakin’ weekend before that.

    Now, let’s see how many people get shot this weekend in Chicago.

  • Ruth

    I remember they said the same thing about Texas when they passed conceal carry. People would be shooting each other over the slightest thing. It wouldn’t be safe because you could get in the crossfire of people getting the drop on each other. Ha, what a bunch of pearl clutchers (and that was the guys).

    • Dan13

    This guy has watched too many movies. The people of Georgia aren’t out dueling eachother in the streets at High Noon and there haven’t been any reports of train robberies.

    Can we get Larry King a dictionary so he uses the right words for what he’s saying? Or is that not something that’s going to happen?

    If you look at the statistics, the big eastern cities were worse in every category except rustling, the per-capita murder rate of New York City was over twice that of Dodge City in it’s worse year.

    I once debated capital punishment with a guy who claimed it didn’t work. I gave him the numbers on how often it is actually used, compared to how often other forms of punishment are used.

    Point being, if the seldom used capital punishment isn’t working, than jail is a complete failure, for the purpose of reducing murders.

    He did not respond.

    This is similar. If guns are the problems, why do areas where being in possession of one is likened to being a child molester have such high murder rates?

  • https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/1307761147/ Don Meaker

    Of course during the ‘Dark Ages’ say 400-800AD, there was perfect gun control. How well did that work?

  • AT

    “The wild west,” he says about a State on our Eastern Border that never shared any cultural identity whatsoever with the frontier land.

    Maybe if Georgia starts annexing indian reservations, that’ll be a loosely fitting metaphor.

  • Exodus2011

    uh Larry, you ole codger!

    the homicide rate in America would be about 1/4 of what it is now, if we returned to the so-called WILD WEST days when the majority of Americans took responsibility/control for/of their OWN SECURITY and that of their family!

    This is precisely the doom-and-gloom predictions that the gun-grabbers claimed when Tennessee passed its “guns in bars” law about three years ago. “Guns and alcohol don’t mix!!! People will get drunk and shoot up the bar!!! Ohs noes! We’re all gonna die!”

    To date, not one single person legally carrying in a bar has discharged his weapon in Tennessee since that law was passed.

    This is great. Given that Democrats generally realize that “gun control” is not a winning political issue for them and are staying away from it. Given that Bloomberg is the only one so ideologically driven that he’ll push it anyway.

    States extending gun rights bring out all the extreme anti-gun loons and keeps the issue front and center. I want Larry King, Piers Morgan, and the rest of them to keep saying stupid stuff and keep branding Democrats as the idiots we know so well.
