Re: Jones vs Morgan

The questions Piers wanted Jones to answer were completely irrelevant to the topic. What do the amount of gun homicides in the UK vs the US or the weapon used in the last two mass shootings have to do with the issue of gun control? Comparing the US and the UK is an apples and oranges comparison.

The UK's populace has been historically disarmed by the ruling class. It's NEVER had a gun culture, so why would it surprise anyone that it has less gun homicides? It still has a much higher crime rate, and the citizens can't defend themselves. 50% of UK home burglaries occur when the homeowner is home. This is compared to 8% in the US, where there has been a gun culture since the founding of the country and guns have always been legal and prevalent. Think about that. Not to mention the fact that in the US, violent crime is LOWER in places where there is less gun control, and the citizens are armed. Just think about the fact that every public shooting in the US in the last 50 years or so save ONE occurred at a gun free zone. It's the disarming of citizens, which leads to a sense of safety for criminals, that allows these tragedies to occur.

The fact the same type of rifle was used at the last two public shootings means we need to ban semi-automatic rifles? Even though they account for a tiny fraction of the gun violence? How is that a solution at all? It's just an unnecessary restriction of our freedoms.

Alex Jones made most of these points in the interview, but he went about it the wrong way. He came off as a raving madman, which he sort of is when he goes into his conspiracy theory shit. That's how Alex Jones is though, and the Piers Morgan show knew that going in, and it's exactly what they were counting on. This isn't about having a debate about the issue (if it was then Piers Morgan would have done that with the last guy, instead of simply shouting ad hominem attacks at him), it's about making the other side look crazy. Which they succeeded at, even though the reverse is true.


Press Play to wake up.

idk if Piers wanted to start off general and then get more specific to sort of introduce and engage the audience? Idk if Piers had a point after his questions were answered but we'll never know, answer the goddamn questions. don't give me this 'the questions were irrelevant'. answer them then make your point.

No, I have AISPP, also known as Acquired Immune Stupid Post Proficiency. I'm immune to the garbage (it's so hard for pro gun boys to defend our crime stats LOLOMFGBBQ!!) that you posted and responded in kind. You said it was hard for people to defend British gun crime stats, acting like it was the be all, end all to the gun crime debate. I posted that it was not, and was nowhere near supportive of the actual point you were trying to make.

My apologies on the misunderstanding, might want to word it better. Why would it be hard for "pro gun boys" to refute statistics if you're now claiming that you meant it as a "hard" statistic? Take a proper English course or twenty and get back to me.

And read what I said again. Do you even know what immune means? Meaning that I was resistant your garbage, not that I ignored it. English classes, son. Is it true that you always resort to petty, sophomoric e-insults when you get your ass handed to you in an Internet debate? Sorry to break your heart. Reply back xxx.

Re: Jones vs Morgan

If Alex Jones spoke (not yell) his opinions, he'd be much more effective.

Where did this come from? Well said person. Glad to see many of us are still using logic today. Great points all through. Could not have said it any better.

Re: Jones vs Morgan

It's funny when people call Alex Jones a nutjob without having researched any of the stuff he talks about. These people are the very definition of sheep. Believe everything the media tells and do as your told.
