Piers Morgan Politicizes Aurora Massacre; Calls for Tighter Gun Laws

CNN’s Piers Morgan wasted no time this morning politicizing the mass murder in Aurora, Colorado. For those who don’t remember, CNN is a cable channel that used to report the news.

Anyway, Morgan took to Twitter this morning and wrote:

How very British.

One man with evil intentions should be used as an excuse to curtail the rights of every other member of a civilized society. This is what passes for intellectualism?

How is it possible that more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens can only result in more violence when history and facts tell us differently?

As I said last night on my podcast, there are over 8 million Americans with a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Since 2001, more states have decreased restrictions on firearm ownership. yet crime nationwide is lower than it has been in decades.

Disarming people isn’t how you stop violence. Perhaps the reason this man did what he did doesn’t lie in the ability for him to get a gun, but in the decisions he made in his life and the culture he grew up in.
