Forget that last Friday a mother in Loganville, Georgia hid her two 9-year-old twins in a crawl space and herself in a closet when an intruder, Paul Ali Slater, forced his way into her home. When he opened the closet door during his home invasion, the woman shot six rounds into his face and neck with a .38 revolver, hitting him five times. Never mind that.
No. We need to focus on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Furthermore, we need to focus on every rare gun shooting tragedy from Columbine to the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting that occurs in this country of over 315 million people where approximately 310 million guns exist.
That’s what Piers Morgan and the rest of specious Hollywood does. Hollywood hypocrites, those same actors that make millions GLORIFYING GUN VIOLENCE in movies, now call for legislation to curb guns… to take guns away from law abiding citizens.
It would be like seeing Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart pose in anti-smoking Public Service Announcements shortly after filming To Have Or Have Not. Anybody got a match?
Contributing to the Hollywood hypocrisy is Piers Morgan, a British citizen, who had the gall to use his platform on CNN — a workplace secured by armed guards — to rant about American gun ownership and link it to violence. In fact, he calls pro-gun advocate, Larry Pratt, an “unbelievably stupid man” in response to the notion that Piers believes it is better for people to be disarmed and a victim of crime than to be able to defend themselves. A logical truth anti-gun radicals cannot seem to reconcile.
Furthermore, Piers Morgan called for the banning of guns in America. The last time the British did that, it led to the American Revolution anchored by the Second Amendment. This time, it has led to a petition to deport Piers Morgan back to England.
Usually, I find petitions to be a waste of time. But this particular petition actually has a purpose. According to the White House, Americans can “petition the Administration to address a problem, support or oppose a proposal, or otherwise change or continue federal government policy or actions… if a petition meets the signature goal within the designated period, the White House will respond to that petition in a timely fashion… To cross the second threshold and require a response, a petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days.“ Currently, the Piers Morgan petition has over 104,000 signatures in approximately two weeks.
So, we wait for Obama’s response. He’s already made a response in favor of gun control that includes this line, “The President called on Congress to pass important legislation “banning the sale of military-style assault weapons,” “banning the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips,” and “requiring background checks before all gun purchases, so that criminals can’t take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won’t take the responsibility of doing a background check at all.”
How will the Obama administration respond to the Piers Morgan petition to deport him after his gun banning comments? Will the Obama White House state the positives guns bring to society and stand up for the Second Amendment? Or, will the Obama White House go soft on Piers, giving credibility to an outright federal gun ban? If so, I wonder how that mother who saved her own life and the lives of her twins in Loganville, Georgia would feel about such a response?
