Piers Morgan vs. Ted Nugent et al

I thought Piers Morgan did a great show on Tues. Feb. 5th demonstrating the firepower of guns like the AR-15 and even the 50-cal machine gun.
He handled gun zealot Ted Nugent exceptionally well.
When you realize it was an AR-15 which killed all those little kids in Connecticut you really have to wonder why civilians need such
rapid-fire, lethal weapons.
Piers revealing that lots of people down in Texas and other states actually believe that the United Nations or the U.S. military are plotting to take their guns away is quite scary.
Great television journalism all around.

Glad someone has the guts to call out these gun nuts. Let's face it, assault weapons are made to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time. If you are in the military or on a police force, they are good weapons to have. Every single mass murderer is caught after they run out of bullets or have to reload. When they can shoot 100 rounds in a minute, mass killings are hard to stop. I have a gun, support people's right to own weapons and see absolutely no problem with outlawing these guns. Back in the '30s, it was legal to own machine guns which were outlawed due to gangsters. Isn't it time to do the same with assault rifles?

to me it's a desperate publicity grab by a desperate anchor who's never had any ratings.
Morgan and/or his producers have apparently decided that taking sides on this issue (and arguing with the other side) gets him noticed........and let's face it, nothing else has (unless you count phone hacking)

the desperate publicity grab doesn't appear to be working:

Are you serious?? Talking about assault weapons is at the forefront of the public discussion, and his is hardly a minority viewpoint. I am not a fan of Morgan, but I salute his efforts to call out the gun nuts on their ridiculous stance that anyone needs weapons that can kill a room full of people in seconds. The publicity grab is the one being done by the NRA in making the absurd case that because we want sane gun laws that the real agenda is to take away all guns and that the only problem is that the mentally ill are getting guns. The fact is, anyone thinking all their guns will be taken by the government is a result of paranoia, which is a mental illness and those are the people who should not be toting around guns.
