Piers Morgan

Watching Piers Morgan rant on the news this morning. He was spouting out a bunch of statistics including one that over 100,000 people are injured by guns each year. Where does he get this stuff?

Unfortunately he has a very big stage, people slurp up his figures, and they become accepted as fact. We need a rational spokesman to refute them in a calm manner.

Saw the head of the GOA on Piers Morgan. Much better than when Alex Jones was on.

Frankly, the whole notion of someone who's not even an American trying to tell us what we should be doing is an insult. He's more than welcome to carry his big mouth back across the pond.

I have no issue with Piers Morgan not being an American and offering an opinion on any topic.

My issue with Morgan would be that he is not thoughtful or courteous.

Sorry guys, but we've got other Piers Morgan rants going. We don't need to add another to the pile.
