Here's the real question, why do we allow people to drive vehicles when he/she has had an alcoholic drink ? We know that a most people that go to a bar consume alcohol, then get in a car and drive. Not sure what the statistic is on alcohol related deaths, I would assume higher than gun killings involving an AR. How come we don't just shut down all bars ? I mean how many people have to die from a Drunk Driver before we take action ? Point exactly, collateral damage. #1, Alcohol laws don't stop ALCOHOL DEATHS, # 2, Creating more gun laws will NOT stop GUN VIOLENCE.
The AR-15 was not used in the Sandy Hook massacre. Piers misinforms the public to get ratings. He is a hack. An AR-15 was found in the murderers trunk. Hand guns, in the hands of a lunatic who was refused a permit to purchase a gun killed his own mom and went on a rampage using HER registered weapons.
If a school bus driver crashes a car killing all the children in the bus, do we ban buses?
If a airplane crashes killing all passengers, do we ban air travel?
Besides this logic, this is an amendment. If the 2nd is taken down, how long before the other amendments are gone too?
Do we argue that women should not vote, because some have abused that right?
What about all civil rights? They are amendments, when will they go too?
The great Sweaty Teddy was busted and plead no contest to poaching a deer in Yuba, California.
Elsewhere, Nugent has agreed to pay a $10,000, serve probation and record a PSA as part of a plea bargain in relation to a May 2009 incident in which he illegally killed a black bear in Alaska as part of his Outdoor Channel TV show Spirit of the Wild.
In court documents, Nugent says he killed the animal in question - via bow and arrow - days after wounding another bear in the state; according to Alaska hunting laws, a hunter is only permitted to bag one bear per season.
Claimed to have avoided the Vietnam draft by stopping all physical hygiene, ingesting nothing but Vienna sausages and Pepsi, and going to the bathroom in his pants for days prior to his physical. (He later said he was joking about thi
“I got my physical notice 30 days prior to,” Nugent said. “Well, on that day I ceased cleansing my body. No more brushing my teeth, no more washing my hair, no baths, no soap, no water. Thirty days of debris build. I stopped shavin’ and I was 18, had a little scraggly beard, really looked like a hippie…Then two weeks before, I stopped eating any food with nutritional value…Then a week before, I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. poop, piss the whole shot. My pants got crusted up.”
The result was, in his words, a “big juicy 4-F,” which meant that he was unfit for military service and thus ineligible for the draft. Nugent has since disavowed those words, stating that he had a student deferment and that he made up the story to fool the pro-marijuana publication.
You people need to fact check a little more. Best not to parrot Fox, Drudge, Rush, etc. A few examples found in about 2 minutes:
"Send him to Yeman." (It's Yemen.)
"if Obama sent Winston's bust back..." (Never happened.)
COP = Constable On Patrol. Wrong (again). Cop comes from the verb "to cop" meaning to seize, capture, or snatch, dating back to 1704.
"The founders you seem to be so fond of believed what I believe." The Founders believed in slavery. The Founders believed women should not vote. The Founders believed that voting should be restricted to land owners. THINGS CHANGE.
"I don't think Obama was very polite in 2008 when he said he wanted a domestic security force as strong as our military...that's a gestapo." AGAIN WRONG!
Since we have eliminated the right to own a gun regardless of size or capacity we see no need for the 2nd Amendment!
Ted is right - Piers Morgan is never going to understand that the gun is not the problem. If they ban the AR15 and magazines over 10 rounds, what's next? They will ban semi-autos and then bolt actions and then pistols. They will then require you to keep your guns in a government lockdown and you can "come check them out when you want to use them". If they can gut the 2nd amendment, they can trample the rest of them too.
Piers says that he respects Ted's opinons. He has a funny way of showing it. Well really not funny more like disrespectful.
Imagine Pierce, the sniveling coward, if he were ever approached by a violent perp. He'd be crying for that Rifle. I would love to see his pride go before his fall!!!!! Great job Mr Nugent!
You know, Piers keeps saying there are no guns in England. I wonder how it is so many people keep getting shot there. Here's one from today (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-21356491) and all you have to do is a few more searches and you'll find that there are shootings in England all the time DESPITE their draconian gun ban.
Isn't murder being illegal in all 50 (or 57 if you are the president) states already the highest possible tier of law that should prevent murder? Since when did murder being illegal prevent murder? It's not about gun control folks, it's about people control. The 2nd amendment isn't just about protecting your family or hunting, it has everything to do with protecting ourselves from a tyrannical government. Period.
I lasted 3:27, then I had to stop because I was starting to get that 'Glenn Beck eyeball blood thing'.
This video establishes that Piers Morgan will not, and cannot, comprehend the ingrained philosophy Americans and guns and Freedom have had for so many centuries. This video shows him shooting an AR rifle, (did he run off camera to wash hius hands?), and the displayed attitude of being overwhelmed and frightened that he actually fired a gun.
It is true that Piers Morgan is an anti-gun maniac. Now that he has soiled himself, by actually holding and operating the very rifle that he has detested on the air, it might seem that he will lose credibility with other on air anti-gunners, for his very actions.
Time will tell. Yet, the fight remains to be won, and Mr. Morgan is just one of the battles.
Long Live The Republic!
Resist we MUCH!
And by the way, Piers, the founders of the Constitution afforded us the right to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government, of which we have a tyrannical government. So, to answer your question, yes, we should be able to have tanks to match our governments fire power because OUR TAX DOLLARS AND THE INTEREST WE PAY TO FUND THE WARS THAT THE BANKSTERS FROM ENGLAND INITIATE IS WHAT'S PAYING FOR THE FIRE POWER SO DON'T TELL ME THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AREN'T ENTITLED TO IT!!! Throw the tea in the goddamn bay!
Piers, if you really don't like the Constitution, then just go back to England. Just go back. Back in the day, Lincoln would have had you hanged in a public square for treason. Should we outlaw rope, too? It's not outlawed in England.
.....ted nugent would have a different opinion about gun control if he had a family member killed by an assault rifle.....
....if ted nugent family member was killed by an assault gun of somesort,he would have a different opinion!...
Bennie apparently you have no common sense... One they are semiautomatic rifles NOT assault weapons - Police and Government own those assault weapons by the billions... Ted and anyone that owns guns - rifles of the semi automatic or non semi automatic variety would not blame - hate the guns laws instead they would hate and desire to put the criminal out of his/her misery.... Wishing Ill upon law abiding citizens to drive home a stupid empty point is a sure sign you have no idea what the hel! you are talking about!!!!!!!!
Why didnt they have Piers bump fire an AR-15 and really get his rocks off? What a Boob. Last time I checked, Yemen doesn't have a police force or live by the rule of law.
How can Yemen be used in a comparison to the U.S. in an argument for gun bans? Not even a comprable nation, as it is third-world, uncivilized and under a corrupt government. Pure ignorance. Morgan is simply doing what he does best: emotive propagandized politicking.
I would normally call Morgan a jackass, but that would be an insult to donkey's.
The man is lower than mole excrement.
Like he ran from Viet Nam? By shitting his pants and pissing himself? At least the republicans would have someone that acknowledges sex with underage girls in advance.
Hey, did you hear the one about O being on the Down Low?? A member of a gay bath house in Chicago? How about the one where two of his gay lovers were murdered in2007? One of the victim's mother has said she believes O was behind his death.
Did you hear the one about the has-been rocker who literally started shitting his pants to avoid serving his country and risking his precious chicken shit self? Yes, it's hilarious. Then while those that did answer the call of their country were dying in SE Asia he boasted of having sex with under age girls? LOL. Then the same chicken shit pederast later became a symbol of the conservative, gun rights, tea party crowd? Only in America. I truly do believe Ted represents the modern Teavangelical as well as anyone save for the half-baked alaskan. Enjoy the defeats yet to come.
Why does Nugent even waste his time trying to convince this twonk that it's not about guns,it's about controlA Brit wuss will never understand our God given Constitutional rights,and how we feel about them.STFU Piers!
Hey puss morgan just wanted to let you know that we dont hate you because of your anti-gun views,it just that WE HATE your limey,smug,arrogant , illiterate ass, you came to OUR GREAT COUNTRY and try to spread your vile ignant views. You constantly tell us how great your homeland is,so take your faggot limey ass back and while yer going take semen cowshit with you and please dont let the door hit ya in the ass on yer way out... You are not welcome in this country as long as you attempt to tear down OUR CONSTITUTION-did it ever occur to your retarded filth spewing inbred self that your so called wonderful homeland doesn't have a CONSTITUTION and you ARE NOT covered by OURS, so get the fuk out of OUR country
Hey Piers! The AR-15 was left in the trunk! Stop the lying! Stop the mis-information! By the way, Piers...the AR in AR-15 stands for Armalite after the company that developed it in the 1950's. Piers, you're an idiot!!! Flush this nut job down the toilet bowl with all of the other excrement where he belongs!!!
this interview was so awsome in so many ways. people like pipes smorken just make me want to be crazy and shoot people like him
Piers picked the wrong person to debate on gun control. Ted kicked his backside beautifully, as I knew he would.
Am I dreaming? That appeared to be a fully automatic weapon the Nuge is licensed to possess. Why did he allow PM to present it as the type of weapon an ordinary citizen can constitutionally own?
Australia and England confiscated everyone's weapons trying to control crime. crime is up in both countries. they took away the right to defend yourself and family. we have weapons here in America to defend ourselves against a Government that would leave us defenseless and at there mercy of criminals and foreign powers that would love to catch us with out any defense at all. look around you. your local police are para military now. they have weapons fully auto. you will have to defend your right to defend yourselves in the future. there is no way around this unless we have a president along with others that know the cost of freedom, from Government not of the people, will not stand in this country.
There are many Veterans and current law enforcement that will still defend the Constitution of America. The right to defend yourself from a Government gone wrong.
Why is a Brittan defending control? That is what he knows. He admitted injoying firing the AR15.
After watching serveral interviews proformed by Peirs Morgan his interviews are not interviews not debates, but the standard cookie cutter political bullying section adopted by our news media designed to make deffenders of issues look stuppied by not allowing answer to the own question.
This shows fear of the interviewer, the unwellingness for to let their opponents answer the question knowing that the answer will sway other against there views.
Piers Morgan you are nothing more than alittle bully.
If you dont like the Consitution of the United Statea of America do yourself a favor and leave our country.
Piers interrupts Ted everytime he tries to make a point. Ted is right, Piers, and people like him will NEVER understand why guns are important and what our Constitutional right to bare arms REALLY means. There is just a fundamental, common sense (or lack thereof) difference between the left and the right. They think guns are for hunting, we understand that guns are for protection and to keep outside forces from taking over...or even a corrupt inside force such as the government! They live in some fantasy world where they forget history, and they actually believe that nobody would want to hurt anybody and that the government will protect us. It doesn't even enter their minds that our government could be corrupt to the point of what Hitler was in Germany in WWII. People need to wise up......
Gun homicides and gun ownership listed by country
The key facts are:
• The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world - an average of 88 per 100 people. That puts it first in the world for gun ownership - and even the number two country, Yemen, has significantly fewer - 54.8 per 100 people
• But the US does not have the worst firearm murder rate - that prize belongs to Honduras, El Salvador and Jamaica. In fact, the US is number 28, with a rate of 2.97 per 100,000 people
• Puerto Rico tops the world's table for firearms murders as a percentage of all homicides - 94.8%. It's followed by Sierra Leone in Africa and Saint Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean
Ted merely wasted his breath...he didn't cause Piers to change his position. I'm beginning to think this constant hammering by Piers about gun control is just a ratings ploy to try and help with his anemic, pathetic ratings. And if that's the case, I'll bet it's not working.
Ted the Sledge had a chance to use those automatic weapons for his country in 'Nam and chose to piss and crap himself for days to get section'd out. Class man to push for the gun lobby.
I hear Comrade Clinton got out of Nam too...except he went to Russia to protest against the US. Wonder what he did over there? Things that make you go hmmmm..
Did you see P. Morgan's security contingent?
Please give us a Patriotic "I Served" speech about Bill Clinton now. Remember him?
Selective memory works every bit as well as selective outrage doesn't it? Selective Service notwithstanding.
