Someone on here asked me my thoughts on this Piers Morgan vs. Alex Jones feud that exploded in the media.
This whole controversy started when Piers interviewed Larry Pratt on his show. Larry simply said that the only way to battle crime in the United States is that America needs to have more guns (which I agree with, by the way) and Piers got his panties in a bunch by saying that Larry is an evil man and dangerous. The controversy blew up from there. So a petition ended up being posted on the White House website urging Piers to be deported because he wanted more gun control. I believe the petition was started by Alex Jones.
So whose side am I on? Neither. I’m neutral on this one.
1. Yes, Piers Morgan is a douchebag, always has been. I always hated the guy. If he wants to have more gun control, that’s fine, that’s just his opinion, but he shouldn’t have to be deported for it ’cause of the 1st Amendment. Piers has a right to have an opinion just like we all do. I may not like the guy, but he has a right to say what he wants. Should he get deported and get sent back to his home country, the UK? No. I didn’t even bother signing the petition. I don’t agree with Piers’s thoughts on gun control, either! He shouldn’t have to attack Larry Pratt’s opinion because he didn’t agree with it. Larry Pratt actually brought up a very good point. I totally support the 2nd Amendment, and we need guns to protect ourselves so we don’t have to be looking over our fucking shoulders when we get out of the house.
2. I don’t like Alex Jones either. I agree with him that we shouldn’t alter the 2nd Amendment laws, but he is wrong on calling out Piers Morgan. Plus, I think Alex is just being an attention whore. A publicity stunt to help promote his stupid radio show. Just a guy trying to get more recognition.
We can’t take away our second amendment rights. If we’re going to get our gun rights taken away, what’s gonna happen? There”s going to be even more violence. People will always try to get their hands on guns illegally, no matter how much the government tries to change things. When will people get that through their thick heads?
What if you’re walking the street and if you got shot in the head out of no where? What if you’re at a bank or a public store and a robbery is being taken place? What if you got stuck in the middle of a mass shooting yourself? Things like this is why we need the 2nd Amendment. If every American gets a gun permit and gets a gun legally, train to use it right, then crime in America will be less and less. Think about it a few minutes. Seriously.
