    I had to change the channel, I only saw a min or two. I don't know who this guy is but I'm sure the show vetted him to appear abrasive and overwhelming. Notice it's the only time Morgan has ever sat back and let some one else talk when the topic is guns. Despite his intentions I'm sure he's doing more harm then good.
    Gotta go the Simpsons are on.

    Why oh why is that clown (Morgan) given air time? I just caught the "lead up" to the video he's going to have. The fact that CNN gives him airtime with his own segment, but not anyone else who is pro 2A, speaks enough about them, but then he comes on and says "I LOVE the constitution, and the 2nd Amendment, but there's no reason for a civilian to have a weapon designed for the military or police" (paraphrase). He is just clueless as to what he talks about.

    Then he parses his words to skew it to "gun violence in the U.S.", but will refuse to talk about the violent crime rate in England or Australia. What a sad dreary world to live in, being in fear of a home invasion or an assault, and where preparing to defend yourself against it is considered "criminal intent". It must be like living in the sad world of "Half-Life 2".

    He says it's crazy to be able to go to wal-mart to buy a gun off the shelf, but in that same wal-mart, you can hardly buy psuedofed (sp) because it's "bad for your health". Really? He doesn't even know what that's for, and then he leads people to believe we have no gun laws in the U.S.

    We, as responsible firearms owners in support of the 2nd amendment, are waaay more responsible than that guy, who is using and abusing and absolutely demolishing the 1st amendment with lies and half truths.

    I'm embarrassed to call myself a gun owner when I have Alex Jones representing me. That dude needs some medication.

    Alex Jones vs Piers Morgan

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtyKofFih8Y

    He threatens him to a fist fight...yes!

    Mr Jones is angry and radical. Someone needs to be.

    Do you feel this sort of emotional appeal to reason is beneficial or detrimental to our cause?

    Please tell me that Alex Jones was there as a crackpot and not as a representative of gun owners.[​IMG]

    I dont feel either side really represents the other in a honest fashion...

    When a host or guest on a show wants to talk over the other, or otherwise be a bully, it shows its not a true debate, only a dictatorship. Both Mr Morgan and Mr Jones are guilty of the same at different times over their respective careers. Neither have my respect. Honestly, neither probably would want my respect given the choice.

    Jones made all gun owners look like tinfoil hat wearing idiots. I'm embarrassed to call myself a gun owner.

    Yes, he made good points, but his delivery was disturbing. I wish I never watched it.

    Alex Jones sure as hell doesn't represent me. In 7 minutes, Alex Jones has done his best to undo all the hard work that the members of this forum has done to portray the positive face of gun ownership.

    I am ashamed to be lumped in with this guy.

    Oh gosh no. Tell me I''m misunderstanding and Morgan didn't really have Alex Jones on. Regardless of what you think of Jones (I don't) it doesn't help that most everyone (neutrals and fence-sitters particularly) surmise him to be a nutcase. Morgan had him on with every intent to malign us and throw us all in the same satchel with him. Fantastic.

    I heard Joe Arpaio is supposed to be on too.

    Glad he expressed his passion and brought up the tyrants mass murdering their unarmed victims.

    A loud mouth Texan w a radio show against a liberal Brit...it wasn't going to be pretty. He should have focused on the 2nd amendment more.

    Alex Jones makes some really good points, but it hurts my throat to hear him talk.

    During the last part of the show either Piers or one of the Kennedy bunch pretty much said that middle America's opinion doesn't matter only the east and west coast, which is pretty much how the media covers the "gun control" debate.

    Also, Alex Jones is a useful idiot for Piers and the gun ban crowd. Any factual information or comments that might have swayed people was immediately disregarded when Piers (who knew just what he was doing) asked him about Sept. 11th.

    Alex Jones is NOT a good spokesperson for this cause.

    He's a nutjob. Obviously Morgan had this guy on knowing he'd come across as <deleted> crazy - and Piers would come across as the reasonable one.

    The whole 'interview' was just an incoherent rant. Then the talks of 9/11 conspiracies? Followed by his awful attempt at a 'british' accent....ugh the whole interview made me cringe.

    Alex Jones has a very "distinct" personality. I don't always agree with him, but I think his style was a perfect counterpoint to the loudmouth liberal media.

    Loved it. I grew up in Texas, miss the attitude dearly.

    Someone needs to stand up to these people, especially when they don't respond to proper discussion.

    The left is counting on a fractured and divided gun owner culture so they don't have to do it for us.

    What Jorg said. There is no doubt in my mind that Morgan did this on purpose to malign us and throw us all in the same satchel with an immature and petty individual whom often cannot be taken seriously and most view as a nut. It would be better for us if he were on the other side imho. I've been puzzling over it and I am at a loss as to how gun owners should react to this misrepresentation tactic. Hit Morgan/CNN/Alex Jones/etc. on Twitter & Facebook? Who should we notify? This is a propaganda war people, something at which the other side has always excelled whereas we've always sucked. Case in point. If anyone comes up with any ideas post up over in Activism. I'm in.

    Edit to add; I'm not at all saying that strong language is not a necessity, especially when dealing with the likes of the equally immature and petty Piers Morgan. I'd simply much rather it come from someone other than Jones.

    Edit to add II;

    These also are wise words. Something to keep in mind should we decided to get active on this issue, should we do so at all. It's possible that we might draw more attention to the debacle by creating a debacle of our own.

    That's all we needed.:banghead:

    Morgan isn't going to reasonable appearing RKBA advocates on his show. He's using the people who the pubic will find the least relatable to hang us.

    Can you say Agent Provocateur? I wonder how many of the allegedly conservative folks that act like fools in front of TV are truly just that.
