Piers Morgan gets owned by Ben Shapiro, refers to Constitution as “your little book”

You have to hand it to Piers Morgan for inviting an rational, informed Constitutional conservative onto his program last night. Author and Breitbart Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro came ready with the facts and prepared for Morgan’s ad hominem and insults.

Within the first 15 seconds of the interview, it was clear that Shapiro wasn’t going to let Morgan pin him in the corner as a “bad guy” who stands against victims of massacres like Sandy Hook for merely supporting his Constitutional rights.

Morgan opened with a question asking Ben, “Why am I off the rails [on the gun issue]?” referring to a tweet Ben has sent previously that said, “Piers Morgan…has been off the rails for days in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook.”

Unfazed, Shapiro responded:

“Honestly, Piers, you’ve kind of been a bully on this issue. Because what you do — I’ve seen it repeatedly on your show — what you tend to do is you tend to demonize people who differ from you politically by standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook, saying they don’t seem to care enough about the dead kids. If they cared more about the dead kids they would agree with you on policy.”

Outraged, exposed, and disarmed of his #1 tactic, Piers was left with nothing to say other than, “How dare you.”

Shapiro didn’t back down from that stance, telling Piers he had seen him do it repeatedly.

Shapiro laid his groundwork for the debate that was about to unfold by handing the CNN host a copy of the Constitution. And as Piers tried his typical arguments on Shapiro, the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution was the number one platform on which Ben would base his stance on guns.

One of the smartest plays to have when you enter a hostile conversation is to understand the opposing view on the subject your arguing, which is how Piers Morgan’s “desire to stop the killings” was exposed as nothing other than demagoguery.

Ben challenged Morgan to explain why he just wanted to ban “assault” rifles when the guns most responsible for gun-related deaths are hand guns.

“Why don’t you care about handguns in Chicago?” he asked Piers.

Morgan stated that he supports the rights of Americans to “defend themselves with a handgun or a pistol.”

Shapiro pointed out that is not the purpose of American’s rights to own guns. It’s not simply self-protection or hunting, but to resist government tyranny.

“The basis for the Second Amendment is not really about self defense, and it’s not about hunting,” Shapiro said. “It’s about resistance to government tyranny. That’s what the Founders said, and that’s what the right believes in this country.”

“Which tyranny are you fearing, yourself?” Piers asked in a failing attempt to mock Ben.

“I fear the possibility of a tyranny rising in the country in the next fifty to a hundred years. Let me tell you something, Piers. The fact that my grandparents and great grandparents in Europe didn’t fear that is why they’re now ashes in Europe. So this kind of leftist revisionist history where there’s never any fear of democracy going usurpatious or tyrannical, is just that. It’s fictitious,” Shapiro sharply responded.

With subsequently no response to such a powerful statement, Piers emptily accused Shapiro of wanting to “do nothing” about mass shootings. Clearly not the case, as Ben responded by articulating his thoughts on what could be done to deter these types of mass shootings from occurring.

In a bizarre attempt to isolate Shapiro, Morgan revealed a letter urging support for an assault weapons ban co-signed by Ronald Reagan.

“One of the great right-wing presidents of our time agreed with me,” Piers pompously stated before, again, asking Shapiro to justify “why an American needs an assault weapon?”

Apparently unaware that, unlike most on the left, people on right don’t all stand on one blanket platform on every single issue, Shapiro informed Piers that he doesn’t have to agree with Reagan on every single issue, and reiterated his point on the purpose of the 2nd Amendment and government tyranny.

Clearly frustrated this is when Piers went, as Ben described days earlier, “off the rails.”

Piers accused conservatives of being the ones “deliberately” trying to make the gun control issue a “left wing attack on the American Constitution and the 2nd Amendment. That’s exactly what you try to do — you come in, and you brandish your little book as if I don’t know what’s in there.”

Yes, Piers Morgan did refer to the United States Constitution as “your little book” while trying to win a debate about one of it’s most important Amendments.

And despite Shapiro’s clear answer earlier in the debate, Piers continued to ask for an answer as to why Americans should be allowed to purchase these guns.

“Do you genuinely believe your own government is going to turn on you in a way that you require an AR-15 to challenge them? You really believe that will happen in modern-day America? Is that what you think?” Piers mockingly questioned.

“They may not turn on me. They may not turn on my children. But the fact is this, history is replete with democracies going tyrannical,” Shapiro explained. “It has happened. It happened in France in the 19th century. It happened in Spain in the last century. It happened in Germany. It happened in Italy. It happened in Japan.”

“Do you understand how absurd you sound?” Piers asked, again trying to belittle the point Shapiro was making.

Ben called Piers out for his bullying tactics, again.

“Here’s where you go into the bullying….For weeks now, you have been saying that anybody who disagrees with your position is absurd, idiotic, and doesn’t care about the dead kids in Sandy Hook. And then when I say that’s a bullying tactic, you turn around and say that I’m bullying you.”

Great job, Ben.

If you’re finding yourself in situations where people are questioning, attacking or merely confused over what’s going on in the current gun debate, I urge you to watch the entire 13 minute interview.

Make sure to tweet Ben and tell him thanks for defending “our little book.”

          • Anonymous

             He wasn’t run out of the UK, his career imploded. He was fired from the editorship of the Daily Mirror for having manufactured a story by faking photographs showing coalition troops abusing prisoners. He has never shown the tiniest amount of shame for his actions, even though the story became a recruiting tool for al Quaeda and likely resulted in deaths of coalition troops. He’s a typical ultra liberal who despises liberty. He couldn’t care less that his lies resulted in violence and death for those who were already laying their lives on the line in defense of HIS liberty. He is typical because liberals literally believe that, due to the “purity” of their cause, actions taken on their part to bring about whatever end they are after are neither hypocritical nor inherently evil. To them, the end justifies the means. Therefore, if it means that they have to pick up a gun and kill in order to make a point, that’s okay. Lying and getting troops killed is okay. In fact, they consider it to be the height of nobility because being caught and fired is simply a noble sacrifice. There’s a point to be made here. CNN considers Piers Morgan a legitimate newsman, despite his obvious penchant for lying in order to create a story that supports his opinions when there are simply no facts that do so, yet, they fired Glenn Beck “on principle”. In this, they have aptly demonstrated the paucity of morality in the liberal/progressive movement. But they don’t stop there. Nothing is off limits in their world and there is no such thing as hypocrisy or “too far” when it is done in the name of “the cause”.

            Jen, perhaps if you could learn to punctuate I might take you more seriously. Believe it or not, I AGREE that those laws are tyrannical. I’m NOT a Republican or Democrat and you have no clue what you’re talking about. I have no idea where your diatribe is coming from, but from what I’ve seen of your posts, you need to grow up a bit and learn some things about life before you go off half cocked. Get your facts straight, get an education and for Pete sake start learning to punctuate. Life is not an iPhone keyboard. When you start treating it that way, and spend some time in educational pursuits, you might actually understand more than talking points from those who foam at the mouth.

            you keep mentioning “left” as if that is the only problem and leave out that the right does tyrannical things as well.  hence, you believe only the left is the issue.  and, end up helping obama in wanting to divide the country as only one group as the bad ones as the ‘left’ is all you talk about.

            you must be like beck who says he is republican and endorses romney, bachman, and santorum, and then says he is neither and then back and forth.

       Who could tell why any man would want to give up even one civil right. He is a a$$hole.  Our current federal government is already tyrannical. It happens all over the country. They routinely seize property without due process or just compensation. There are too many federal agencies with rabid idealogues on their payroll running roughshod over the rights of private citizens and businesses. Piers is a bully and he is lucky not to run into a room full of guys like me, because I tell you he would become real uncomfortable. Lets all come together, us patriots. we should stop debating with fools and just band together and be of one mind. this current federal government must be dismantled before it’s to late. The time for suffering fools like Piers Morgan is over. It’s time to act.

      • Anonymous

        This is absolutely true. What most people don’t realize is that federal law already allows them to seize property without conviction PRIOR to any trial. Additionally, federal law is in absolute disdain and opposition to the constitution. There are a series of federal laws codified in what is known as the Jenks Act, that literally exempt the federal government from having to disclose what evidence and strategy they plan to use against a defendant. This act also requires the defendant to disclose all testimony and witnesses to the prosecution. All of this is in abject opposition to the constitutional protections under the Bill of Rights. This act also allows the government to seize a defendants assets for any reason. The reason that they usually will do this is to prevent the defendant from having the means to defend themselves. Because of this act, the federal government can and will seize property in order to “indemnify” and compensate the government prior to prosecution. Many people think that this is bogus and would never be applied in actuality. Think again. This is used in every federal prosecution. The FBI sweeps in, seizes property and anything they want, whether it is in a warrant or not, and can legally invite others to violate the law by stealing evidence that they cannot legally obtain through a warrant. I know. I just sat through a federal trial for a friend who is a physician who was accused of medicare fraud. In six years of poring over every patient he saw, including non-medicare patients, the government found SIX patients who had questionable billing amounting to a total overbilling of $1,487. Yet, they introduced “evidence” that had no names attached to it from many years prior to the statute of limitations, they were allowed to admit this evidence by telling the jury about it even though they were not allowed to give the names to the jury. They introduced two other doctors billings as my friends, then used these laws to persuade the judge to admit it. They also did multiple wiretaps that showed that it was THEIR witnesses who were committing fraud, and, due to the Jenks Act, were allowed to prevent my friend from using THEIR wiretaps as evidence. And the amount that they are demanding from my friend? 12 years in prison and $785,000 in governmental compensation and fines. I hate to tell all the liberals out there who claim that the federal government would NEVER take away our liberty…it is already nearly gone and they are desperately trying to remove all they can prior to 2016. Why? I call it the rubber band theory. You can pull the rubber band back over and over again and hope it springs back to where it used to be, but once these laws are enacted, they will be nearly impossible to overturn and even if we can undo some of the damage, we will never again be able to get back to where we are. We are at a point in history where liberty hangs by a thread and evil is winning. They found the one vulnerability in our armor…our children. In the space of one generation, schools have joined the liberal cause and are actively “deeducating” our children, convincing them that their parents are out of touch and that they hold the answers. They have been largely successful in breeding a studied ignorance of rights and freedom. Instead, public schools teach a bevy of educational subjects that hold communists and socialists up as populist heroes and actively paint the Founding Fathers as rapists and murderers if they mention them at all. The constitution is rarely taught, and if it is, only in light of how to use the Bill of Rights for liberal causes that seek to outlaw the rights found therein. Now is not the time for a violent uprising, but this is exactly what they will reap if they manage to sow these seeds of final disarmament.

           There needs to be a groundswell of support for teaparty type activism. and we should resist using any politicians or celebrities for the cause. The people need to represent the people. The media loves to attack any person who stands up to the progressives and the feds. It’s time for all of us to retaliate against such acts. Like when they descended upon Wassilla Alaska and tried to rip Sarah Palin to shreds. Why does any American conservative or liberal think that this is ok? We must stop this before there is no one left to fight. There has to be some cohesion here. We shouldn’t quibble about little things. it’s time for us all to come together and stick to a plan. Unconstitutional laws are not legal. There is a group of County Sheriffs across the country who are taking up the fight. Please look up countysheriffsproject.org. Sheriff Richard Mack heads it up and it is as fabulous plan. Check it out.

     The argument that Americans
    should have guns in case a tyrannical government installs itself within the US seems
    pretty weak. If the government secured control of the military it would not be
    possible to engage in conventional warfare in the same way we saw in 1776
    because the disparity between any militia with domestically available weapons Vs
    the weapons available to the US military is just too great, at least too great
    to use conventional warfare as the main method of removing that government.

        I’m perfectly happy with that and if everyone only ever used guns solely in self defense or in removing a tyrannical government that would be fine. Yet we cannot simply ignore the fact that there are those who will use guns to commit horrendous crimes. We therefore have a responsibility to consider ALL possible means of preventing these crimes, even if those means do not sit well with us emotionally.

        Undoubtedly true, but i think it is fair to say that the favored method of insurgents within Afghanistan are in fact IEDs. It may be worth considering also how much success have they had against drones.

          Far more American military have been killed and injured by IEDs than have terrorists by the use of drones. This is not meant to suggest that drones should not be used but unconventional warfare is definitely a b$@#h. Personally, I believe that the lions share of our men and women in the military would never turn on their fellow Americans. This is why Obama has been expanding organizations such as the DHS and the TSA in particular. Recently, the TSA wanted to establish highway patrols which would have the authority to do vehicle searches without warrants. Somewhat unprecedented, wouldn’t you say? Also, one twit within this administration suggested making “conspiracy theorizing” illegal. Together, just these two actions would basically gut the Bill of Rights. Dangerous times are not coming, they have arrived.

       Written by someone who has no clue about the overall agenda of the regime and who isn’t paying attention to the control that is being foisted upon the citizens of the USA as we speak. 

      The military has nothing to do with this argument.  The argument about individuals armed is to PREVENT an over reaching government from even THINKING about trying any funny business on the citizenry.

      The cure for gun violence is that every adult over 18 be trained and armed, as long as they are mentally stable and are not a criminal. Period. 

      The Aurora shooting happened because that theater was the only GUN FREE THEATER in the shooters area.   The Sandy Hook shooting happened because the shooter knew the weak security at that school.  SEE??

      When the Japanese were planning an invasion of the West Coast of the USA, do you know why they did not try it?  Because one or more of the Japanese military advisers was educated in the USA and he knew that the CITIZENRY ALL HAD WEAPONS.

      More killings/murders are accomplished with knives and blunt objects than with guns.  Maybe if the individuals murdered by knives or blunt objects had, per the above suggestion, been carrying a gun, the knife or pipe wielding individual would be dead, and not the current victim. 

      • Anonymous

        my concern with that argument is that there will always be a “weakest point”. If everyone carries single shot handguns, those intent on killing will simply upgrade to carry fully automatic, and as such we would be entering into a simple case of escalation.

    Understand something, not only is the second amendment meant to ensure the people of our nation the rights to bear arms, it declares that the STATES are the ones in the end who should have the final word on the matters.

    The deterrence against a Federal government becoming tyrannical is just, for too many times in history that has occurred and we stand on the edge of it once again. Yet consider as well that this extends to a government on the State and Local levels as well, if they decide to violate the Constitutional rights of the citizenry.

    Firearms provide a means for hunting true, and for the defense of the individual and their homes and families. Consider how much more crime would occur if the people are disarmed and have to depend solely on the police that may be minutes or hours away.

    Look well to the massacres that have happened in Europe where people are restricted beyond belief on firearm ownership and see how one or two people armed could have averted much if not all of the people slaughtered.

      Actually, in reading the Federalist Papers, the word, “state” does not refer to the states, it refers to the country as a legal entity. However, you are correct that the states can regulate such things, but does not mean that they have the authority to forbid the right to keep and bear arms.

      Arguably, the right to defense of self and others is an inalienable right, one not subject to regulation by ANY government entity. This interpretation has been reinforced in several recent supreme court cases in which governments tried to make entire cities or states “gun free” zones. Hopefully, soon, we will have a national interpretation of the second amendment that reflects the individual decisions that, under any other circumstance, would set legal precedent that would be utilized to form and enforce law. Instead, many municipalities continue to claim that these decisions are irrelevant to their headlong quests to emplace illegal firearm legislation designed to deprive individuals of rights.

      I completely agree with everything else that you stated in your post. Additionally, we need to take care to not fall into the trap of liberalism that tries to force us to defend WHY we need guns. Liberals despise the constitution and this amendment more than any other as it is the only amendment that specifically forbids government interference in the exercise of that right. Liberals simply cannot countenance an armed public that does not tolerate government interference. This is the entire reasoning behind the second amendment.

      Those who claim that the second amendment is simply arcane, therefore, ignoring it and simply violating it should be considered a new means of amendment, one that utilizes the liberal tool of cultured apathy and ignorance to deprive those they now fear of their rights. Obama and Biden and the Democratic party as a whole openly mock the second amendment.

      The NRA found out that the agenda seeks to circumvent the will and rights of the people. Joe Biden, after holding many meetings with advocates and adversaries, held a press conference and stated that they had received many recommendations and that he would be presenting the president with those recommendations that advocate federal gun bans, equipment registration and forcing gun owners to justify WHY they should be allowed to exercise guaranteed rights. In other words, the meetings were a complete sham. Why they even bother any more is inexplicable because they then turn around and openly announce their disdain for any ideas differing from their own and state that their ideas are the “will of the people”.

      Somehow, it never occurs to anyone that the constitution was not developed to reflect the simple will of the people. If this were so, there would be no need for a difficult amendment process. It also never seems to occur to them that if the will of the people is sacrosanct, what happens when the will of the people seeks to deprive a minority of the rights enjoyed by the many? This is where we are at now. There are too few who understand this due to studied brainwashing in public school systems that seek to, in the space of a single generation, gut the efficacy of the constitution in favor of a system that allows the formation of a dictatorship in the name of “exigency”.

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.

    All this tossing about the term “assault rifle” is so much baloney. I’d like to own an “assault rifle”; in common with almost everyone else in this country, I don’t. The actual “assault rifle”, one with automatic or selective fire capability, has been strictly controlled since 1934. You only find them in the hands of a Class III dealer, or someone who has paid an extra $200 fee, and waited months for government approval to purchase one.
    The only place you see malefactors blasting away indiscriminately is on TV or at the movies. Perhaps that’s where the libs become terrified by the false idea that our streets are running red due to misnamed “assault weapons”.
    The actual number of crimes committed with such weapons in the last seventy years is miniscule

    • BentGhazi

      I concur with you. I worked a second job as a gunsmith for a class III dealer, several years ago, and most of these so called leaders in Washington and elsewhere don’t have any idea what they are talking about. It is ridiculous the amount of disinformation and out right lies these people tell about weaponry, and even ammunition. 

      It is due in part to TV and movies that show cars bursting into flaming hulks when they are hit with bullets, and how they show them exploding when hit in the fuel tank, or blowing tires off wheel rims by shooting them. You also see people firing full auto for minutes at a time, without changing magazines, to the point that it becomes ridiculous. When bullets hit walls they blow fist sized chunks out of them, people can saw through walls and walk through the resulting hole, and all sorts of stuff that would be impossible to do in reality. It’s really sad so many people have such a cartoonish misunderstanding  of what people with guns can do. 

      I have only heard of one full auto weapon being used in a crime – and that was a law enforcement officer using his own submachine gun to murder his wife. I don’t remember the circumstances or particulars beyond that.

    Why do we continue to entertain this British Blow-hard. I lived in Canada for years, and listened to this same nonsense, gun free nation crap. People who cannot stand up to a government will surely fall to the oppressor, be it socialist, communist or the Obamanation, you need to defend yourself. And stop calling it an assault weapon, it’s  blasted rifle. I can assault you with a lollypop stick, so lets call it what it really is,an assault on our Constitutional rights from the LEFT.

    How come I’ve never heard of this young Ben Shapiro?  He’s amazingly articulate, focused, and in command here.

    Ben simply slayed each point of argument to shreds with logic and reason.  You can see, as the interview progressed, Piers’ tone getting more defensive and agitated while Ben remained confident and even tempered.   It’s clear who won the debate.

    I have to say, if Piers keeps doing such a great job at making liberal views look so foolish by debating such great guests, I might start watching.

    Shapiro does a good job standing up to Morgan but I wish he would properly define an assault weapon or rifle. There are numerous examples of two weapons of the same calibre and ammunition capacity; one with a wooden stock and casing, the other a “tactical” design. An idiot will call the latter an assault rifle.
    The greater irony is Morgan arguing against the idea of fighting a tyrannical government.  He still bows to the royal descendants of a tyrannical king whom became the reason the Framers established the Second Amendment.

  • The Blue Collar Man

    Again, a liberal hammers away using the “Assault Rifle” tactic, not being smart enough to know what the are saying is totally wrong.
    The term Assault Rifle thrown around, is NOT what an AR15 “Rifle” is. It’s a cosmetic look alike of a Military weapon, just the same as those fake Cameo outfits that anyone can buy and wear.
    The AR15 is NOT capable of continuous firing, as a true Assault Weapon can, by just holding the trigger, you have to activate the trigger for each shot, one at a time. They have been engineered to prevent people from modifying them, for full automatic firing. 
    A lot of people don’t know, that the .223 AR15 RIFLE, is illegl to use in some States, to hunt Deer. It’s deemed too weak to insure a Deer is killed when shot, which is the humane way to hunt. A Deer, shot with such a small bullet, can’t be killed, unless the shot is accurately placed in a critical organ, somehing that only the most skilled marksman could ever do.

    • Anonymous

      Good point. And one I make all the time. I used a .223 caliber rifle as a “varmint gun” to kill coyotes when I was a boy. It has the power to travel long distances with a fairly good trajectory and kills animals the size of coyotes well. The AR15 also comes in a .308 caliber bullet which is larger. I find it ludicrous to the point of lunacy that they base what they consider an assault rifle on the appearance of the gun. My trusty 30-.06 gun is used to hunt deer, elk and bear and has WAY more knockdown power than a .223 caliber AR15, yet, is not considered an assault weapon. The problem is that liberals are willing to start with this, but the true goal is the confiscation of all guns from the hands of private owners. Piers Morgan is an unmitigated ass incapable of rational thought. I’m sick and tired of hearing him harp about how the US is so violent. The most violent city in the EU is London. You are WAY more likely to be the victim of violent crime there than New York City, yet, he claims that, because of guns, we are far more violent as a people. Brilliant. Europe is NOT free of violence. This is just one more liberal cause in their endless march toward totalitarian socialism.

    Piers Morgan has no standing on any part of this issue – the man is a subject of the United Kingdom, and the Constitution of the United States of America is not his concern. He is in no position to judge what we as Americans have lived under as the supreme law of the land for over 200 years.

    We have a POTUS that does not support our Constitution and a DOJ that gives weapons to drug dealers. We have a POTUS that turns americans against americans because some have money and some do not. We are becoming tyrannical and people see it do not trust this government to protect or look out for our best interests. This government is a group of thugs waiting for a crisis to take over.

      Yes, and yet, our AG is the one telling gun owners they should be ashamed. I guess that it’s noble to feed 50 caliber Barrett rifles to drug cartel members and then prevent the police from being able to interdict the cartel while claiming that it is discrimination based on color. These guys are teflon. They have singlehandedly been responsible for the deaths of law enforcement, soldiers and a US ambassador. There will simply never be a single act committed by them that they will be held responsible for. In this, Piers Morgan is very similar. He manufactures stories and lies about it, yet he is now working for CNN.

     I thought Shapiro gave the British Subject a good lesson on what the Bill of Rights is all about. You people who think the Bill of Rights are about hunting and shooting burglars are cracked. The Bill of Rights are about protecting the citizens from tyrannical governments(foreign or domestic). And its not a “fluid” document that you can change to suit your needs. Oh, im sure it will go to the Supreme Court who will rule that you cant outlaw “types” of guns-but you can tax them will probably happen. When I go to my bank there is an armed guard standing there to protect replaceable paper money, theres an armed guard protecting the jewelry store, theres and armed guard at the Rolex watch store. Why so opposed to guarding our children at schools? They are irreplaceable!  A hunting shotgun, which most uninformed people claim they are not opposed to, can be far more deadly with 12 pellet double 00 buck shot. 5 shotgun shells times 12 oo buck pellets equals 60 bullets. You “common sense” gun control people have to start somewhere, so you start with “assault weapons”.  but your prohibition WONT stop crazy or evil people who are willing and wishing to die and kill innocent people in the process. They will use handguns, shotguns, and hunting rifles.  They are just as deadly against unarmed people! And then low and behold you’ll go the way of England and Austrailla and ban all guns in the name of public safety. England may have fewer gun deaths, but they have a much higher crime rate. I saw they store owners stand by furring the riots in England when the Bobbys said they were outnumbered and couldnt stop the burning an looting. As opposed to the Korean merchants who protected their own stores during the L.A. riots. Their stores were left alone! Ill stick by what our founding fathers wrote down. Sure, you’ll claim they couldn’t foresee these “deadly guns designed only to kill people”.  Im sure they couldn’t foresee our JOKE of a judicial system where murderers are let free in a revolving door prison system! 

    • Anonymous

      David, I agree with you. We should never get sucked into a debate about whether or not we “need” a certain type of gun. It doesn’t matter that the Founding Fathers didn’t know what kinds of weapons existed at the time of the writing of the second amendment, although that is a completely foolish argument. They lived in a time when wars were fought hand-to-hand and large numbers of people were slaughtered through the used of blades, much of the time, taking hours or days to die, nearly always in excruciating pain. During the Civil War, hundreds of thousands of men were killed through the use of cannons and low velocity bullet fire, as well as swords and bayonets. 24,000 men were killed in a singe battle at Antietam. Since 2001, 6,251 US soldiers were killed, in total. It is absolutely ridiculous to claim that the Founding Fathers were unaware of the firepower available today because the world is a much safer place today than it was in their day. The argument the left hopes to engage in is trying to force US citizens to justify why they need a gun. The answer should always be the same – it doesn’t matter why I need it or whether the government or any other private citizen thinks I need it. I don’t have to justify my ownership of guns because it is an inalienable right guaranteed by the constitution. Why else would the Founding Fathers have specifically stated in this amendment that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed? This is the only amendment that has absolutely no wiggle room and does not simply declare that the people possess the right to arms, but FORBIDS the government from infringing on that right. If we play the game of the left, we acknowledge that they have the right to deprive us of an inalienable right simply because they think that we shouldn’t have the right in the first place. The left needs to be responded to calmly, but with disdain and no answer to those questions and left with the simple statement that I own guns BECAUSE I CAN…period. We don’t have to ask their permission. We don’t have to give them a reason. They have no right to ask.

  • Jeffrey Perry

    Ben, why didn’t you go back when he tried to route you into a corner with the REAGAN issue and ask him why BILL CLINTON suggested we have an armed guard in all schools?? Why does BILL CLINTON agree with the NRA?? The right?? Which does not mean republican?? And why does everyone not seem to understand that it is not CRAZY to assume that the GOVeRNMENT of the US could eventually turn on us, not in our life or maybe in our life. What was the weapon used in COLUMBINE Piers Morgan. Sorry Morgan but you trying to bait a classy CONSERvATIVE into acting like Alex Jones, YOU DOPE!! Why do you try to make US citizens that believe in our CONSTITUTION, OUR CONSTITUTION, look dumb, when we are not?? Have you denounced your citizenship and started paying your fair share of taxes her in the US of A?? Are you sucking off the teet of fame and money and POWER the US has offered you yet not willing to pay your fair share PIERCY BOY OL’ CHAP?? You don;t believe in RESPECT of the US citizens for our 2nd amendment?? Piers you are a low bum that said it yourself, the american people are not stupid. Why have you not done a show displaying the attempted BOMB MASSACRE here in Utah by 2 teenage kids in their high school Did you know they learned to build bimbs on the free internet, and also had planned to do that then escape by stealing a plane!! And this was last year, you know how they learned to fly the planes? Video games!!! Yes, Those stupid things that lazy parents like yourself let raise their kids instead of taking them out to play a baseball game or CRICKET I guess if that sinks in better. And please don’t try to pass the buck on gun sales when JOE BIDEN is threatening to use his Presidential authority, to stomp on the Constitution. You act like the government is not capable of doing scary things to us just because we are US citizens, look at what has happened all over the world with all the wars, the govornment scares us a lot, can you not get that?? It scares us that they could some day turn oin us because you make us conservatives who care about the FAMILY, who don’t want our Country to go BROKE and be in sooo much debt to China, who believe in good values. I don’t understand where the Left came to like the Government all the sudden when they were just barely protesting in the streets about corporate greed and the 99%, HELLO?? Don’t you understand that the Lobbyists are the ones getting people elected?? And they are the CORPRORATIONS that put Obama back into the WH?? And now that we take a stance of concern that we might not be able to trust the Government 100% we are the CRAZY ones?? 99%!!! What happened to your concerns?? Where did you go?? Did the media pass that one over your heads???? The uninformed Voter. I saw who was protesting here in Utah, they did it at the same park across the street from the homeless shelter??? Starting to get the picture??? UNINFORMED VOTERS!!!!! Piers, please don’t accuse us of being stupid like you want us all to be, because we are not. The Mormon Church is a great organization, I am not actively Mormon, but if Romney was really a Stake President in MASS, then I can swear he was a better man than the Guys chain smoking cigarettes in the WH now, and he would have paid for his own Christmas Vacation! I hope we can all come together, stop the arguing, the accusing, and learn to coexist and respect everyones rights, GAYS, GUN OWNERS, IMMIGRANTS, MORMONS, CHRISTIANS, ATHEISTS,all of which effect my family. There is a solution, and it is not so far right or so far left, but there is truth that many don’t want to recognize, people around the world that need more than we do for them, and people around the world that need less than what we do to them.

    Typical left wing rhetoric. Asking over and over again about the need for citizens to have an assault rifle when Shapiro had answered him repeatedly why.

    I believe that Ben was being very optimistic in his assessment of when this gov’t will go tyrannical. He gave us 50-100 years. I give us less than 10, and if Obozo just starts using executive order after executive order to to get around Congress (which he has publicly stated) isn’t that the definition of tyranny? One man deciding for everyone what is good for them? How does tyranny feel NYC? Your mayor is about as tyrannical as they come.

    The time is swiftly approaching when we can no longer hope that our politicians will do the right thing, and we will have to be actively rebellious to their unconstitutional laws.

    All I know is that if someone, from criminal to cop, isn’t sure if I’m armed on the other side of the door in my home, it tends to keep them from coming in without my knowledge. And maybe someone ought to teach Piers about the ‘Battle in Athens Tennessee’ when WW2 vets stood up to a tyrannical country gov’t that tried to intimidate them.

    That, Piers, is why we have guns. That is why we need to have out our disposal weapons equal to what the authorities have. So that they will fear us. And then we will be free. It is clear that 1) your little pea brain can’t wrap around that concept and 2) our gov’t no longer fears us.

    Someone needs to tell Piers Morgan about our Bill of Rights.

    As the Constitution was being written after getting our freedom from England, the writers decided that in order to make the Constitution more likely to be ratified, they should enumerate the rights that have been given to them by God.  Not only that but they remembered the abuses perpetrated on the Colonists by the British King. What was not said in the 10 amendments, but was implied because everyone knew why the Bill of Rights was written is:

    (Because of this abuse by the King) Congress shall not…

    All of the 10 items in the Bill of Rights address abuses by the King, and the Framers knew that if they didn’t write down and prohibit the Congress from following the abuses of the King, then someday, sooner or later, the Congress would be doing the same abusing.

    All of those amendments are rights that English people didn’t have.

    There is a Youth Pastor in prison in Canada because he wrote a letter to the editor expressing his opinion about “gay” marriage.
    Australia has confiscated ALL guns.
    England has an official church, The Church of England, which is supported monetarily by the government…100%.  All they do is conduct royal weddings, baptize children and do funerals.  The church is basically a dead church, rich with government money.

    The big picture here is that, those countries have NO Bill of Rights in their constitutions.

    Piers Morgan left that to come here for freedom, and now he wants to ignore the Constitution which gives him the right to spout off and sound like a fool.

    • Anonymous

      Jim, excellent points. I would like to do a little research on the youth pastor in Canada. Do you happen to have a name or a website where I could find the information? You probably have heard that the Christian pastor who was to give the benediction at Obama’s inauguration was attacked because of his beliefs that homosexuality is wrong, even though the man hadn’t uttered a word about it in 25 years. The man has dedicated his life to combating human trafficking. This is so like the left. They are the most tolerant people in the world…so long as you believe EXACTLY what they do. Otherwise, they believe that you should have your rights removed, be silenced through government intervention and punishment and reeducation meted out to any who would dare disagree with them. They often accuse the right of being Nazis, but it is the habit of the socialist to silence dissent and “reeducate” the masses. It is the way of the Nazi, too. It is the right that defends their right to be stupid and doesn’ t fear what other viewpoints will put out there.

    The second amendment was put in the Bill of Rights for the most obvious reason.

    The Government of England (The King) turned tyrannical and ran over the rights of the British citizens in the colonies.  They assessed unfair taxes, they quartered soldiers in colonist’s houses, they told the colonists what they could and could not buy, they restricted what the newspapers could print, and so on. Eventually it turned into a full scale invasion, with British soldiers taking up arms against us, British citizens.

    They put in the second amendment so that it would not be possible for their new government of the United States to abuse them in that way.

    They also put in that, if and when the government did any of those abuses, it is our right and OUR DUTY to get rid of the abusers.

    In my opinion “if and when” has become “here and now”…preferably through a peaceful impeachment, starting at the top and working down through the Congress and the Judicial.

            Yeah, especially when the masses disarm themselves. Just how foolish are you that you think that your reasoning is rational? Giving up guns means no opposition. This is not Asia. It’s obvious that you’ve never been in the military or have a clue about how the government works. Each and every soldier that is sworn in and every police officer takes an oath. NOT an oath to Obama or to the government, to the constitution. Believe it or not, genius, the vast majority of them understand what that means and they are taught to disobey any order that would violate that oath. The president, the congress and all their lackeys combined do not have the power to enforce a law. And besides that, the individual states own the National Guard, NOT the president. While some states are controlled by liberals, the president still would have to convince all of the governors to suddenly turn their guns on the people of their own state. As I said, you don’t get how it works here. This country was born of rebellion and the people that you are claiming would mindlessly slaughter their own families and neighbors are nowhere near as devoid of intellect and morality as you seem to be. The government has to fear the people of this country because those that they would seek to dominate will not submit without a fight and most of those who would bring the fight would still believe in the constitution that they swore an oath to, NOT the president. While the Patriot Act and other illegal government schemes can easily be used against individuals, to take down the people of the United States is only possible if the government somehow convinces the military as a whole to abandon their oath and their sense of duty and family ties and rational thought. They exist in the form that they do, the National Guard exists in the form that it does is to prevent that, and all of them are subject to the people and the constitution. The minute that someone declares a coup, they become the enemy those men and women are sworn to defend the constitution and the country against. It is not as simple as you measuring planes and drones against “pop guns”. It’s an idea of freedom that you obviously not only don’t care about, but are too stupid to defend. And, true to form, you will NEVER understand it. I know people like you and they never change. You will be protesting that you’re right until the day you die. I’ll defend your right to say it, but I’ll be pointing out the paucity of your morality, your intellect, your lack of factual understanding and your foolishness all the same. You don’t deserve the freedom that you’ve been given. But that’s the great thing about living in this country. Idiots enjoy the same rights that others have fought for even though they don’t deserve it. It’s something that exists nowhere else in the world. Frankly, I think that you should embark on a journey to “find yourself” a place where your apathy will actually result in what you seem to want…the end of anything that matters.

      And yet, there are so many who not only question it, but desperately try to convince others that it is outdated, as somehow, tyranny no longer exists. Leftists call those on the right who defend the second amendment alarmist, yet then do everything in their power to circumvent individual rights through the government. It would be laughable if it weren’t so frightening. Just the other night, in my neighborhood, someone began shooting outside my house. I live in the heart of suburbia, in Washington and our street was previously well outside of a criminal element. If these morons had their way, my family would be left defenseless and unable to fight back against the incursion of criminals and those of nefarious intent. I keep reading that we need to trust the police. Eight people on my block called the police. They didn’t respond. No officers showed up. When I called 911 for a second time, the dispatcher told me that the supervisor had decided that, since no one was reported injured, they had decided to dispatch no officers to the scene. She sounded like she was cringing waiting for me to blow up. I told her not to worry, that, I would be taking care of the problem myself. The next thing I knew, there was a police supervisor threatening ME on the phone. I asked him if he would be sending officers to follow up on his threats. He asked me why. I told him I would have my attorney waiting for them. He then told me that he wasn’t sending anyone, but if I tried to take care of the problem myself, he would arrest me. I laughed at him. I told him he could certainly do so, but he would also most certainly be defending himself in court. My neighborhood is upper middle class and fairly expensive homes. It only reinforces that liberals are either criminally moronic or just plain evil, but one thing is for certain, it would be a fool who shows up at my door to confiscate guns. I don’t believe that most officers here would obey such an order anyway, as the police association supports citizen carry laws, but our police chief is not from here and is constantly at odds with his officers. Regardless, I’m growing tired of idiots questioning my right to carry and own guns.

    Morgan was taken apart in short order. Why he chose to take on Shapiro is anyone’s guess. A guy who argues on kneejerk emotion against a bright, articulate, PREPARED guy is no contest. The latter wins every time. Morgan constantly tried to corner Shapiro without success. And his outburst with the “little book” remark also reveals the frustration of someone who knows he lost the debate.

      Piers Morgan is a waste of good carbon atoms. When Jesse Ventura pointed out that his beloved London is the most violent city in Europe and England has a higher percentage of violent crime than ANYWHERE in the US, he almost lost his mind and immediately began name calling and mocking. His audience, though, which normally loves him, was asked by Jesse Ventura which one of them they thought was making valid points and which of them was full of it. The audience went nuts when he asked them who liked his points and booed Piers. Yet, he just won’t stop even though all stats and evidence are against the idiots in this country who are for gun control. The fact that Chicago has the most regressive and oppressive gun control laws in the nation hasn’t resulted in a populace that sits around singing cum-by-yah and holding hands. It has made the innocent defenseless against the criminals and vermin of the city. Yet, what do we hear from Obama and Biden? This is exactly the model they are proposing. They KNOW the effect of these foolish laws, yet they either boldfacedly lie about the numbers or else they claim that the violent crime stats would be even higher if not for gun control. It’s funny how they can use evidence of the worst crime stats in the country as evidence that their policies are working and use non-existent stats to shore up their horrific numbers. Instead of interpreting what is clearly before them screaming to be heard, they ignore the clear cut evidence that gun control results in MORE crime, not LESS. We have to be rational about this, as the liberals are always stating. Gun crimes are rarely committed by those who legally own weapons and even less by those who legally carry them. Yet, all we hear about is how “gun free zones” are going to be our salvation. These crimes are almost always committed in these zones because the shooters know that if they are opposed, they have a high chance of being wounded or killed prior to accomplishing an act that is always committed in a way that ensures they will achieve notoriety and attention. If not, why don’t they attack police stations? Certainly this might achieve some measure of notoriety, but the level of violence and the number of innocent, defenseless targets unlikely to offer resistance also offers a chance of lasting notoriety that will survive them long after death. Those who KNOW the numbers and still seek gun control are pure evil. There is simply no justifiable way that they can offer a rational explanation for their actions since they already know beyond the shadow of doubt what the effect of those actions has been in the situations where they have been tried for many years. Those who are simply liberals who don’t know are sheep and unworthy of participation in the debate. Wishing that a situation was different when the clear answer is before them is lunacy. I wonder what they would say if it were their relative who was saved by someone carrying a gun? Would they “stick to their guns” and offer up the life of their loved one rather than see them saved through another’s violent intervention? Would they then turn on the one who had saved their loved one and demand the law punish them? If not, then how could they hold those types of beliefs and insist on inflicting them on others through the force of law? This reminds me of the idiocy of animal rights activists who would forbid all animal research. If they truly, fervently believed in their cause, then neither they, nor any of their children or loved ones in their care would ever be allowed to receive ANY medical attention of any kind, because each and every medical procedure and equipment, right down to the tubing in their IV, has been tested on animals. These fools cannot conceive of the world that they would inflict on mankind. Their desires for peace through gun control inflict violent harm on others, leaving them defenseless against those of nefarious intent. THEY are responsible for the murder rate in Chicago. THEY are responsible for the deaths of the elderly who become victims of home invasions. Yet, how many times have we heard them take responsibility for the effects of their actions. NEVER. Not once. And we never, ever, will, because, in the mind of a liberal, results that turn out diametrically different from what their “peaceful” laws intended DON’T MATTER. The only thing that matters is that they’re on the “right” side and that they wanted it to result in peace. Never once, excepting what happened in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre, have I ever heard a liberal back down on the results of gun free zones. Virginia Tech learned that the only result of a gun free zone was a defense free zone when someone decided to go on a violent rampage. Now, students and faculty are allowed to carry guns with concealed carry permits. Good for them. But can anyone recall ANY other instance where results were evaluated appropriately and laws were changed? All we ever hear is that we need to make ourselves even more defenseless against evil and that will somehow prevent violence from occurring. And they say we’re the ones that believe in fairytales when we speak of God? They have made Obama a god and evil is their king.

    The thing that these people don’t understand is that it doesn’t matter why we THINK WE NEED A SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPON, what matters is, it is MY RIGHT TO HAVE ONE. IT DOES NOT MATTER whether I NEED it or not, that FACT is IT IS MY RIGHT TO HAVE IT UNDER THE SECOND AMENDMENT OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. PP~

      Keep saying it, brother. We do not need to justify gun ownership. Don’t allow them to amend the constitution through laws that simply ignore citizen rights in favor of the power of the federal government.

    Piers Morgan should go back to Britian/England.

  • sparducks

    Here is why Piers Morgan sounds absurd:
    I got this from a forum called “Professional Soldiers” The fella’s handle is (greenberetTFS) who posted it.
     20th Century Stats of Genocide/Ethnic cleansing…

    1. Mao Zhe Dong, 48 to
    70 Million, 1949-1969, China
    2. Stalin, 1932-1939, 23 Million, Russia
    Hitler, 12 Million, 1939- 1945, Germany
    4. Tojo, 5 Million, 1941-1944, Japan

    5. Enver, 2.5 Million, 1915- 1922, Turkey
    6. Pol Pot, 1.7 Million,
    1975-1979, Cambodia
    7. Kim Il Sung, 1.6 Million, 1948-1994, North Korea

    8. Menghistu, 1.5 Million, 1975-1978, Ethiopia

    Glenn, I use to watch you from 2008 to 2009 and thought you did a fairly good job in regards to the important issues this country was facing. Better then most main stream media actually at the time. But now after all the mornoic statements you have made in regards to Alex Jones clearly shows me and the rest of the country that you are a jealous fool! “Nobody know who he is…” referring to Alex Jones…! What are you an idiot??! More people listen to him on radio then you now. I’m done with your fake crying. Remember your fake crying?

    I will be taking my ears as well as several of my friends ears away from you as well. A fascist?? And thats what he is you say?? You are a fool my ex-friend. He’s hardly a fascist and you are hardly a wise conservative. Your audience had dwindled to nothing because your facts of whats going on in this country are soft. You have become less relavant because I have done “my homework”. Your Popular Mechanic rants are idiotic. But the facts that come out of http://www.infowars.com are quite accurate. Again, I know this because I have done my homework and what you need to do is your homework! Perhaps you are still upset with Alex Jones, when he did expose you of being a shill of the new world order, trying to appease libertarians. You have lost not only myself but aprox. another 6 or 7 of my friends because you can’t give the facts out without name calling duing these important times for our country. I’m ashamed at what you have started calling news because your depth of some issues has become junior high school level naivety. Good luck with your failing station.

    I find it interesting that Piers Morgan laughed that America fears tyranny from government as the reason America has a 2nd amendment, when it was not so long ago that Germany banned weapons, took over the people and the USA had to go in to rescue England and France from the tyrannical government that Germany had become.

    Piers is what would be called a “yellow journalist’. To remind every one it’s a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. But thinking about it that pretty much everything out there in the mainstream media.

    “Do you genuinely believe your own government is going to turn on you in a way that you require an AR-15 to challenge them? You really believe that will happen in modern-day America? Is that what you think?” “Piers mockingly questioned.REPLY:
    Ask the Syrians about “Tyrannical  Government””.Oh … We had to supply Lebanese people their own weapons to defend themselves!!! If“Tyranny””. in the US erupts & my 2nd Amendment is infringed; you can bet one day we will find ourselves in internment camps like the Japanese Americans. Had they had weapons powerful enough to defend themselves  they may not have had to endure that part of sad history!  A“Tyrannical  Government”” may even want to deport ALL people not born here. Piers; Europe might not take you back!

      You make a good point that I hadn’t considered. All governments seek to remove weapons from the hands of their people, whether for benign reasons or for ill intent. Unfortunately, even in situations in which the intentions are benign, the end result is that those who give up weapons become victims. Look at what happened in Australia. Arguably, the government of Australia was trying to do something good, but the end result is that those who previously could defend themselves against crime are now sitting ducks. Armed robberies, home invasions and other violent crime has skyrocketed in Australia. Why? Because the only people who gave up their guns were the ones who were already obeying the law, leaving only criminals with weapons, making them far more fearless and daring.

    The United States government has a history of tyranny, please ask any Japanese/American citizen that was put in an internment camp.  The fears that our own government will forcefully remove our God given rights is a very real fear.  The left and right are both a threat to our freedom and liberty right now.

    why does Piers say “what we want”  he is even a us citizen?

  • Anonymous

    You guys are all talk. Where were you when they were passing the Patriot act, taking away our rights, searching us without warrants, tapping our phones, reading our emails? Your guns were USELESS when a fascist administration like Bush’s started taking away your rights. What rights do you think your guns are going to preserve? They sure didn’t help you stop the government from taking away your rights in the past. 
    In fact, your gun ownership makes you sleepy and sheepy and complacent. You think you’re safe because you have a gun, meanwhile, the government has taken away your rights and you’ve done nothing about it. All talk, no action.

      Knownothing, the question here is, what are YOU doing? Many of us are politically active, nearly all of us vote and make personal phone calls, send faxes and e-mails. All you seem able to do alternate between apathy and derision. I’ve not heard a single thing that you are FOR, only whining. What, you think that owning a gun means that we all belong to terrorist militias? Or is that what you would like? Or is it your opinion that the time has come for killing government officials and holding them hostage, albeit sans weaponry? You have no understanding of the world. You have no convictions. You have no reasoning skills. All you seem to be skilled in is causing problems and blaming everyone but your own worthless carcass for what is going on, but you advocate giving up even more rights. Either you suffer from severe, untreated bipolar disorder, or you’re just trying to stir things up for fun. Either way, it’s not worth it to discuss anything with you so long as you remain unmedicated, or overmedicated.

    the reason we need an AR gun is in case it all goes down… we need more than a hand gun to defend ourselves if riots, etc.

    America is the jewel in everyone foreigns eye.
    Britain lost us, tried twice to win us, lost twice and then dug in from the basement.
    Europe wants us because their failed system because with our resources it can maintain it’s keynesian experiment a little longer before collapse.
    The globalists need us in the fold because as long as we’re out there, independent, prosperous and proud their plan can’t have the worlds complete and full attention as the worlds god and saving grace.
    What we have here is a total assault on America by a unified One World Order digging there way in any way they can and now they have garnered the help from our children who are opening the door from the inside .

    I loved that Andrew Breitbart (RIP) was such a force to be reckoned with during interviews,  hitting back twice as hard every time. Breitbart never acted like a career oriented politician. He never backed down. Ladies and Gentleman, pay attention to this polished young man on the screen. We may be seeing someone who can go toe to toe with even the nastiest interviewer and come away unscathed. After seeing him tear apart this liberal blowhard,  I think I just fell in love with Ben Shapiro.

    I get the impression Ben Shapiro would have been one of those Jews who during WWII would relish the job the Nazi’s gave him of pushing the other Jews into the railway freight cars, because the position gave him a great sense of importance to be playing for the winning team.
