Piers Morgan is a moron. He's been getting owned over gun control debates, badly.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=B8C49yv3uyM

Here's a video that takes a closer look at the false stats he's been spewing lately.

I'm not a fan of Piers Morgan... But I have yet to see one of these anti-gun control people on his show do anything which could be interpreted as "owning" anyone. The arguments I have seen presented have been paper thin and very weak.

This.

Although, the Shapiro guy got the better of Morgan, and he was dead right by saying Morgan was a rude bully.

No one shoots people because the line is long at walmart
Ive not heard of someone dying over missing a redlight either


No, the "trigger happy" are the idiots who operate off of "respect" and street cred that think anyone cares about their existence outside of junkies and the homeless who depend on it.

Excellent post, let's dissect this, shall we?

1) The kids needs to not be neglected, and why the **** did the **** leave her two kids in a house with an unsecure gun? sounds like bad parenting by a terrible mother.

2) Shot and killed by who? a drive by? 2nd hand gun fire? was it self defense? not enough information to go on.

3)found dead, this may as well say suicide, not a gun control issue

4) shooting range, sounds like a legit accident, where was the trash can? was it on the range? was the gun fired in the correct direction?

5) dallas chicks, shot to death, not sure what to make of this, but it sounds like legit.

6) this is a legit gun control issue

7) 15yr old girl shot, ok why was it shot at? was it kids? was it a drive by? need more info

8) why does a 22yr old have an unsecured firearm in the first place? sounds like a stupid ****, not a gun control issue.

9) this sounds like some sort of redneck bullshit, NORMAL people discuss issues like grown ****ing adults, they dont shoot people over the last ****ing beer in the fridge.

10) poor oregon man, clearly states it was an accident, not a gun control issue

11) father-daughter, not sure what to make of this one.

I could go on and on...., but I wont, lets face it. These instances are the results of retarded people with guns.

Find the results of all bullets fire from educated people with firearms, like for instance a cop. How many instances like the ones above can you find where the gun of a policer officer was used in a drive by. And I'm not talking about corrupt cops(ie criminals), I'm talking about solid working class americans who arent the 'slums' or the 'idiots' of the USA.

While we're at it, let's put a 'control' on cigarettes, bats, wire, alcohol, and cars, they kill plenty of people yearly too.

Oh wait, people profit from those, sorry!

There is control and regulation on many of the things you listed, also the gun business is very profitable.

I'm sure there is, but not securing a firearm could be a sign of an uneducated firearms owner. That is not a gun control issue and is the case in at least 2-3 of these instances(of at least the ones I mentioned), that's a stupidity issue.

Here's a better idea.

Wanna solve this issue?

owning a gun REQUIRES a basic common sense test
a yearly psych evaluation
an IQ of at least 100

I don't disagree with this sentiment but when it is a "right to bear arms" then any change no matter how small will be argued as an infringement of rights even if it does not warrant such criticism.

Also what if responsible law-abiding citizens don't feel like they should jump through these hoops because of the irresponsible gun owners. As a result you might criminalize law abiding gun owners, I think most would want to avoid that. Overall the gun debate is a pretty muddy one and there are no easy answers especially considering how America's gun culture impacts it.

Ok, it appears that you actually do want to discuss this, so lets.

The bill of rights is over 220 years old, now, and most people only say it's a 'right' of theirs if something is being taken away. Most people usually say its their 'right' when they are caught doing something stupid.

That aside, let's talk about the LAC(law abiding citizen).

We test people for cars, why can we test them for guns? What does a law abiding citizen have to hide from a simple test? If they don't qualify, I'd assume they'd try to and then once they do they wouldn't want to **** that up.

Don't get me wrong I agree with a lot of the above
