I suffered through another episode of Piers Morgan last night to see how he'd treat Larry Pratt, President of Gun Owners of America.
The last time Pratt was invited to participate in the frequently-demanded conversation about gun control and mass murders, Morgan called him "an unbelievably stupid man" because Pratt didn't agree with him.
Last night was a little better. Morgan only managed to call him inhuman.
It was after that interview that Cincinnati's Fox 19 anchor Ben Swann took a look at some of the stats Morgan has been using.
Here's that video:
You can find the supporting data here.
After the debate with Pratt, Morgan brought on two relatives of mass-shooting victims to call for more restrictions on firearms. These people obviously deserve sympathy, but let's not kid ourselves about why Morgan brought them (and only them) on to discuss their personal experiences: propaganda.
Had Morgan been interested in "having the converstaion" he might have considered bringing on some people who used weapons to save lives.
