Piers Morgan to Ben Shapiro: How about participating in a townhall debate where my other guests and I can berate you?

posted at 3:51 pm on January 15, 2013 by Allahpundit

They need a gun-rights supporter for their ritual shaming ceremony and since Shapiro embarrassed Morgan the other night, he was naturally a top choice. Alternate headline: “Man declines to serve as prop.”

[W]hen it came time to book the show, Morgan’s team refused to tell Shapiro what the format of the show would be. When Shapiro said that he expected balance — a second one-on-one interview with Morgan — Morgan’s producers balked. They did insist strongly, however, that Shapiro appear on the show, where he would be “in for the entire show” and “have a huge part.” When Shapiro again reiterated that balance would be a one-on-one, and asked for more details on what his role would be, Morgan’s producers went silent…

It seems relatively clear what Morgan’s plan was. If Shapiro was to be the centerpiece of the show but not to have any one-on-one facetime with Morgan, this was to be Morgan’s revenge for his clobbering in the last faceoff with Shapiro. During that debate, Shapiro accused Morgan of “standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook.” Morgan had no coherent response. This time, it seems, Morgan wasn’t just going to stand on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook – he was going to stack the audience with grieving parents and relatives of the victims of Newtown, then confront Shapiro with them.

The White House is also planning to stack the audience tomorrow with kids for Obama’s big gun-control announcement to remind America that he cares about children and gun-rights supporters don’t. While they’re there, President Caresalot should let them know how much more each of them will owe four years from now after Democrats get done blocking every last proposal for significant spending cuts. He used to pretend to worry about things like that as part of his “for the children” pre-presidential platform. Not anymore.

But I digress. Shapiro’s having fun turning the shame tables on Morgan on Twitter:

Evidently Morgan’s producers have now agreed to two solo segments, so expect another round of faux-indignant “how dare you” stammering from the host tomorrow night. One thing that’s interesting to me about Morgan’s relentless guns grandstanding lately is that I haven’t seen much enthusiasm for it, even from people whom you might expect to cheer him on. Case in point: Watch the Colbert segment below. There’s an odd hint of antagonism to it even though you know Colbert agrees with him on the merits. Maybe that’s a function of suspicion over the old phone-hacking claims against him or maybe it’s as simple as gun-control fans thinking that Morgan’s lame interviews and insufferable posturing do the cause more harm than good. His ratings are strong lately but there seems to be no significant support base for him among lefty media. Or am I just missing it?

I think they relish the idea. To them any civil unrest will quickly be put down by the military and the upshot for them is that after the dust settles they have a lot of dead conservatives and get to ban firearms completely so as to prevent it from happening again. They don’t fear killing, destruction or firearms. Anyone on their side that dies are martyrs and more props to stand on to push their agenda. They need dead bodies to make people turn to them.

Pssst, your ignorance is showing.

GUN CRIME GOES UP BY 89% IN A DECADE

“Gun crime has almost doubled since Labour came to power as a culture of extreme gang violence has taken hold.

The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year – a rise of 89 per cent.

In some parts of the country, the number of offences has increased more than five-fold.

In eighteen police areas, gun crime at least doubled.

The statistic will fuel fears that the police are struggling to contain gang-related violence, in which the carrying of a firearm has become increasingly common place.

Last week, police in London revealed they had begun carrying out armed patrols on some streets.

The move means officers armed with sub-machine guns are engaged in routine policing for the first time.”

Gun Bans: Mad Dogs & Englishmen

By the way, do you know what happened to the violent crime rate after the gun ban?

The UK has a higher overall violent crime rate than the United States and even South Africa – widely considered one of the world’s most dangerous countries. In the 12 years following the gun ban, the number of recorded violent attacks soared by 77% to 1.158 million – or more than two every minute.

Country: # of violence crimes…rate/100,000 residents

1. UK: 1,158,957…2,034

2. Austria: 133,546…1,677

3. South Africa: 732,121…1,609

4. Sweden: 108,004…1,123

5. Belgium: 107,885…1,006

6. Canada: 306,559…935

7. Finland: 41,664…738

8. Netherlands: 111,888…676

9. Luxembourg: 3,233…565

10. France: 324,765…504

The US was: 1,318,398…466 (now 1,246,248… 403.6 in 2010)

Thanks for playing.

Resist We Much on January 15, 2013 at 4:22 PM

Actually, I think the problem for Morgan is that there is just not as much interest in gun control among the average liberal as the liberal media would like you to believe. Judging from my Facebook feed which, during the election, had about as much pro-Obama propaganda as pro-Romney, or should I say ABO sentiment, there are so far only two people who have posted anything pro gun control. One is an openly gay nephew who agrees with any position the President holds and my husband’s aunt who just retired from the Washington Post and who posts a weekly diatribe about all things lefty and who informed the masses yesterday that the founders were thinking muskets when they drafted the 2nd Amendment and no one should have or need more than one bullet at a time. (I doubt she would agree they were thinking only quill pens and not Facebook when they drafted the 1st Amendment.) Every other single thing I have seen on the topic seems to be pro 2nd Amendment.

The surge in gun sales and NRA memberships seem to point to broader support for guns amongst the rabble. Not every single person in the leftwing media is a huge hypocrit even if most are. Plus I believe they are hearing from their viewers. The blowback from publishing legal gunowner’s names has been epic.

kastor on January 15, 2013 at 4:10 PM

Shapiro could have done a lot more.

The last assault weapon’s ban didn’t do anything.
The guns the liberals are targeting are regularly used in self defense (in fact Breitbart.com highlighted a case where a teenage boy used an AR-15 to protect himself and his sister in fending off a criminal).

There is a mountain of evidence Shapiro could mention about how ineffective gun laws are in stopping violent crimes using guns – including from the anglosphere (Australia had a mass shooting after it’s massive gun ban).

There are numerous examples where armed civilians have prevented mass shootings.

None of the liberal proposals would have actually prevented any of these massacres.

Obama’s own kids go to a school with armed guards. Obviously they think – when it comes to their kids – that bearing ikcy guns is important.

The historical reality of the Second Amendment’s protection of the right to keep and bear arms is not that it protects the right to shoot deer. It protects the right to shoot tyrants, and it protects the right to shoot at them effectively, thus, with the same instruments they would use upon us. If the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto had had the firepower and ammunition that the Nazis did, some of Poland might have stayed free and more persons would have survived the Holocaust.

This is complete nonsense. He’s flat-out lying. I can’t reveal how I know this on the internet, but, in London alone, there is a gun crime there every week, whether it’s a mugging where someone shows a gun or a shooting or murder. Smuggling a gun into the UK is the easiest thing that you can imagine. You can’t rely on the UK press or government for accurate information about this. All the UK’s gun laws do is what gun laws do everywhere else: Make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.

CNN is especially notorious for luring others into ambushes disguised as “debates”. The most recent and infamous was the Candy Crowley debate concocted to save Obama, but even Obama himself got tastes of it during the ’08 primaries when the Clinton News Network was overwhelmingly pro-Hillary (the girl at the Nevada debate with the softball “diamonds or pearls” lob to Hillary was reportedly a Harry Reid staffer CNN slipped in).

So the ambush isn’t surprising, but neither is the fact that Shapiro didn’t fall for it. The “conservatives” that do fall for it are usually aware of the game but play along anyway to remain within the Beltway circle.

Anyone who comes to this country and wants freedom can obtain it by becoming a legal citizen.

Yes, from what little I’ve seen of it. I don’t have cable so I only see what little gets posted here and at a few other sites.

Not to mention the Jews in Soviet Russia, The Chinese, Cambodians, Iraqis and recently the Iranians.

By birth?

UltimateBob on January 15, 2013 at 4:37 PM

Yes, by birth. His mum is Belgian and his father, IIRC, was Canadian (war marriage?). He went to a public boarding school (read: private school) in Britain; hence, the accent. I know that it wasn’t Eton or Westminster, but it was one of the posh ones.

I’m with ya. But, we do always need to keep a close eye on our adversaries so we know what they;re up to.

Morgan would muck up his own funeral.

Typical liberal.

I wish Shapiro would invite Morgan to a debate and have Breitbart set it up. Or, Maybe PJM should invite Shapiro and Morgan with PJM setting it up.

We really ought to get started on this next step so we’re much better positioned to offer debate venues during the Presidential elections. These lesser ones, will help get us work the bugs out and get us ready.

It will also help with ad revenue.

Interesting photo. That girl is going to lose her thumb if she pulls the trigger.

UltimateBob on January 15, 2013 at 4:21 PM

What if it’s a SAO? Or, if it’s a DA, perhaps she prefers to cock it, first??

Shepherd Lover on January 15, 2013 at 4:52 PM

Shapiro already kicked the crap out of Morgan once already, so badly Morgan whined like a beeyotch about it for days afterward.

There is no need to do it again.

The White House is also planning to stack the audience tomorrow with kids for Obama’s big gun-control announcement to remind America that he cares about children

The dead children from Chicago won’t be there.

Obama feeds on carrion.

To talk about Chicago street crime is racist.

If the 2nd Amendment doesn’t cover an AR-15, how can the 1st Amendment cover television?

Ronnie on January 15, 2013 at 5:01 PM

Democrats and Europeans don’t care about dead black children.

Washington Nearsider on January 15, 2013 at 4:35 PM

I still remember that hard hitting ” town hall” Morgan did with Holder ,where the audience was stacked with mexicans who lost family members to Obama’s gun-running .
And who can forget that totally investigative piece Morgan did with Killary and Jarret about their roles in killing of 4 Americans in Benghazi. He made them answer some real togh questions about the youtube video and gun running for syrians and libyans .
He so cares about gun violence !!

burrata on January 15, 2013 at 5:02 PM

I want to see every single Dem who wants gun control “for the children” to repudiate abortion, and become pro-life advocates.

The White House is also planning to stack the audience tomorrow with kids for Obama’s big gun-control announcement to remind America that he cares about children and gun-rights supporters don’t.

The Dems don’t do it for the children. They do it to the children.

In IL Obama voted to permit infanticide. He did everything he could to prevent the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act from being passed.

“… if that fetus or child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb….”

and

“… but there’s, let’s say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead….”

Democrats—promoting child-killing since 1973.

Britain “literally” has no guns? None? Not even law enforcement? No guns and 35-40 deaths a year? Inconceivable!

Your choice of words and tone leave that statement open to two OPPOSING interpretations.

I honestly can’t tell which one you really meant.

Schadenfreude on January 15, 2013 at 4:47 PM

Yes, but she evidently doesn’t know that. Sort of like Marion Barry when he said this:

“I am clearly more popular than Reagan. I am in my third term. Where’s Reagan? Gone after two! Defeated by George Bush and Michael Dukakis no less.”

What no teachers in on this? You know the people who will continue to have nothing but their unarmed bodies to use to shield their students from bullets?

What does the teacher’s union have to say about that?
