Thinking he could have had a reasonable discussion or debate with a gun fanatic, CNN’s Piers Morgan got the man who started the “Deport Piers Morgan” petition on the White House website, to agree to come to his show. The goal was to present the two sides of the debate on gun control, but Morgan got more than he bargained for after he asked the first question, “why do you want to deport me?”
The man’s name is Alex Jones, and responding to Morgan’s question, Mr. Jones began by explaining that the purpose of the Second Amendment to the Constitution is not for gun owners to “go duck hunting,” but rather to protect Americans from “tyrannical governments and street thugs.”
That was the only question Mr. Morgan got to ask, as Mr. Jones went on a shouting match with himself, claiming that the reason the government is “trying to take our guns” is to achieve “world tyranny.”
Showing a few pieces of paper that he called ” FBI Crime Statistics,” Mr. Jones’ voice began to rise when he spoke about other leaders who “took the guns.” As his shouting continue, Jones came to his climax when he proclaimed;
“Hitler took the guns Stalin took the guns, Mao took the guns, Fidel Castro took the guns, Hugo Chavez took the guns, and I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! Doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street, begging for ’em to have their guns taken. We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?! That’s why you’re going to fail, and the establishment knows, no matter how much propaganda, the republic will rise again!”
After the commercial break, the crazy continued. Morgan tried to lay down some ground rules – I ask the questions, you answer. But his first question after the break sent Jones back on his trip.
