Colbert, Morgan debate gun control

ColbertA rough few months for Piers Morgan got worse last night when he stepped into the lion's den and went head-to-head with the alpha male himself, Stephen Colbert.

Morgan was a guest on Comedy Central’s 'The Colbert Report,' where Colbert had a direct message for the British talk show host "Get the (expletive deleted) out of here!" I guess we know where Colbert comes down on the petition to get Piers deported. 

During their conversation, Colbert needled Morgan, reminding him what happened more than 230 years ago when America laid the smack down in the Revolutionary War. 

It was not all comedy though, as Morgan, who has become something of a gun control advocate following the incident in Newtown, Conn., said that, "In my country, where we have no guns, we have 35-40 gun murders a year; in your country, where you have 300 million guns, you have 11-12,000 gun murders a year. I think when 20 young children get blown to pieces, Americans should say something has to be done."

Colbert answered, saying that, "We need to take to time, reflect, and eventually forget, and then I think we won't have such a heated debate."

Did any of you catch Morgan's appearance? What did you think?

The NRA is a big business lobby, a special interest group interested in making money. They don't give a damn about people or murders or gun rights beyond making a buck. Why do stupid people fall for the whole idea that they are trying to support freedom....Lol Freedom to make money is their only goal. Like all big business lobby groups...

Piers Morgan is actually (by a long shot), the biggest knob in the world. NRA president David Keene is only standing up for our constitutional right to arm ourselves. If you "have no guns" in the UK, how can you have 40 gun murders every year? Because only the criminals have guns. The criminals will ALWAYS have guns. In Kennesaw Georgia USA, all residents are required to have a firearm in their home. How many gun murders did they have last year? ZERO. And the year before that? ZERO. In fact, Kennesaw has been "gun murder" free for over 25 years. There will always be a crazy who will kill innocents, but that has nothing to do with law abiding citizens owning firearms. I rest MY case. And take your knob back. Please? He's clearly not wanted here. Thanks! ;)

Y'all were so happy to have him on that news thingy that's on all day when he took over from the feller with the braces. Now we Brits very politely but firmly say "No refunds, sold as seen and please call again when we have some more cr@p to get rid of"

Piers Morgan is the second biggest knob in the world after the NRA president David Keene BUT he does have a point. I rest my case. P.S. we don't want him back, he is yours now.
