Nancy Grace Rips Piers Morgan: It's Not Right for a Brit To Lecture Us About Gun Control!

During a segment about George Zimmerman on CNN Monday night, Morgan began arguing for more gun control before Nancy Grace shut him up

Nancy Grace chewed out Piers Morgan for spouting off about gun control as a British citizen, during an appearance on CNN Monday night.

“It's not really right for a Brit to jump up and start talking to us about gun control!” she exclaimed.

Earlier in the segment, Morgan argued against George Zimmerman having such easy access to guns.

“Here's are my problems with this,” Morgan explained. “…If Dunn and Zimmerman had not been carrying guns, then these two young boys who were unarmed as it turned out, regardless of any fear that may be felt by the people shooting the guns, they would be alive, right? So there's a gun accessibility of people…”

“Oh are you back back on gun control again!” Grace interjected. “If it weren't for the British, we wouldn't even have to have protections to carry guns, it was the British way back when we founded America who were running through all of our homes, trying to take our stuff! So we're protected under the constitution! So it's not really right for a Brit to jump up and start talking to us about gun control.”

Morgan appeared flustered by Grace's counter argument but quickly regained composure to argue back.

“It seems to be entirely up to a Brit because you can't sort out your own gun problems!” Morgan countered.

    Oh great, now Piers Morgan has me agreeing with Nancy Grace! Now I hate him more then ever. :(

  • Nunya

    The first and perhaps only time I will ever agree with Nancy Grace.

  • Robert

    nothing like tw0 big mouths going at it !! We don't need him telling us GET RID OF HIM BACK TO BRITIAN we have enough up n comers who can use his job–RID THE BRIT !!!!!!

    • Robata

      We don't want him back!!!!

  • Robin Johnson

    Who cares who starts the conversation???? The problem at hand is how accessible guns are and what needs to be done about it. So, I guess all the countries we invade need to add our 2nd amendment to their polices and laws??….

    • http://batman-news.com ShutTheHeckUpPiersMorgan

      Of course. But then after we invade them we need to make sure we add a star to our American Flag!
      You are an idiot Robin.

  • Michael Difani

    Not many events in life are more dangerous and deadly than an idiot like the hotshot in Florida who grabs a handgun and opens fire on a vehicle next door. No handgun training, no knowledge of Florida laws regarding lethal force, etc. Weapon training for those in law enforcement takes weeks of discipline and live firing. Yes, the British Isles have had horrible gun killings, such as the lunatic who killed 16 kids incl. the teacher in Dunblane, Scotland in the mid 1990s. Or a case in Tasmania, etc. The San Diego county sheriff wants even more weapon restrictions and background checks on gun buyers…for ammo, handguns, rifles and shotguns. Dunn will get decades in the joint..big time.

  • DDYERN

    You know in the 1800's everybody carried a gun and were able to stand their ground, and after some years, our country matured, and they relized that shooting each other in the city streets was not the way to go… but to create laws that controlled the access to and use of firearms was the way for a civilized population to go and things got better. We can NOT go back to the 1800's methodolgy of everyone packin heat and having pitched gun battles because each party is trying to stand their ground. The young boy in the car if he had a gun, could have claimed the same defense as they shot up the gas station. To say the constitution prevents all laws controlling or limiting gun ownership is incorrect on it's face as already proven by our supreme court. If the Gov. wanted to get a list of gun owerns for what ever reason, all they have to do is purchase the mailing list from the NRA, as the DO SELL it to make money. They have the most complete list of gun owners in America built into their own mailing list. One day sanity may prevale, and intellignet gun and ammunition control will be put in place to help back us down from the shoot first mentality we are embracing with such furver that it makes the testosterone filled movies seem dull and boring.

  • Danilo Salvatera

    Nancy Grace dead wrong. It was not a lecture, statement of facts.
    If that stupid ex-cop who went to see a movie, was not carrying his gun,
    the guy he killed in the presence of his wife would have been alive today.
    Why carry a gun just to watch a movie? Now, one family man is dead and
    he will rut in jail. Same is true with that stupid guy who unloaded his gun
    because of loud music, he too will rut in jail after killing a teenager.

    • Skip28

      Why carry a gun to a movie theatre??? AURORA RING A BELL FUCKTARD!!! If one person in that theatre had a sidearm, they could have saved MANY lives, same with Sandyhook. That being said, I want to make it clear, I AM NOT defending that ex-cop.

      • Danilo Salvatera

        The only way to cure your bad mouth is put a gun on it and pull the trigger!

        • Jason_TX

          Wow dude. So, basically you want people to not be able to have firearms BUT those who do should be shot. Interesting argument. Here's something for you.

          The guns in these instances were not the problem. The people who carried them obviously had mental health issues.

          Fun fact a gun that is not being wielded will not hurt a soul. My guns haven't killed anybody. If in fact guns are the evil things you make them out to be, then I own the laziest guns in America.

          • Danilo Salvatera

            I am not against guns ( I have 2 guns myself ). I just did not want an argument that is personal with foul mouths.
            Your are OK Jason, it was skip28 with foul mouth that I don't care. I carry my gun on a long trip or places that I may need it ( not in theaters or mall ). if you start a shootout in places where there's a lot of people, more innocent bystanders will be killed or hurt. What happened to those two guys I mentioned who used their guns UNNECESSARILY, they will rut in jail.

    • cat man

      So your at a restaurant with family and someone starts killing people with any type of weapon people use, and what is it that you do to protect your wife and kids ? you sit there crying and let some man or woman stop the killer with his gun ? you better hope someones there that doesn't know who you really are . they may just walk away like I might .

      • Danilo Salvatera

        If there's no gun, there will be no shooting!

  • theThinker

    Piers Morgan… nobody is better than he is at using fallacies.

  • MountainMan

    I dislike Piers Morgan. But he does have a right to speak his mind. While the US established rights protecting our guns and protecting us from unlawful invasion we violates those same rights in Afghanistan and Iraq for exactly the same reasons the Brits did it to us. They were going after rebels and terrorists same as we were. It seems a bit hypocritical to say P.M. has to keep quiet about our guns rights when we're just as guilty as the Brits of violating peoples homes.

    • Jason_TX

      The major issue I have with PM is the following. He is not an American. His opinions mean absolutely nothing when it comes to American laws and policy. He's a member of a news organization and can reach millions of people which makes his opinions dangerous. Most people in America today cannot think for themselves. If they take everything he says at face value he is affecting the thoughts of Americans. Which I don't agree with.

      He actually has no rights like American citizens do. He cannot own a gun and most importantly he can't vote.

      I have a saying. If you don't vote you don't get an opinion. That is why when I get into a debate with someone over policy I always ask if they voted in the most recent election. If they did not, I graciously bough out and say your opinions do not matter because you didn't voice them when they really counted.

    • Butch

      No, Morgan is not a citizen of the US! So he is NOT protected by our constitution, specifically the 1st amendment.

      He keep claiming how the UK has lower gun crime… The UK doesn't “count” a crime until it has been solved. Greatly reducing their actual numbers.

      Nancy is right, we have the 2nd amendment because of GB and we hold tightly to it because of countries like Syria, Ukraine, and Egypt.

      The people, gun grabbers, think the US is too sophisticated, to civilized to enter into a civil war. The United States is far too strong, they think. Well, so did the people of Rome. For over 1000 years they existed and spiraled into a liberal state of disgust. Where are they now? What happened to the great Roman Empire?
      In the US, there are over 100M legal gun owners. There are approximately 300M legal guns in the hands of those people. Over 5M are members of the NRA. Our military consists of approximately 1.5M members… in 2012, the government had military member fill out a questionnaire, asking if they would take up arms against US citizens. 75% said “No!” Why would they, our government, ask this? What purpose would the have?
      Liberal forces want us unarmed, so they would be free to do whatever it is they want to do. To take our rights away to turn this great country into the Socialist United States of America.

      I will fight, I will stand against the growing tyranny growing within this country!

      • saucetin

        Nobody's talking about if he has the LEGAL 1st Amendment right to speech. That's what Free Speech means. We're talking about whether he's PAID to talk on TV. We're talking about advertisers wanting to be associated with him.
        When you bring up ‘free speech’ in this kind of discussion, it sounds like you don't have any idea what the constitution ACTUALLY, legally protects. Ask yourself if your ignorance is so severe that you make other people ashamed of and embarassed for you.
        At the end of the day, what you need to remember is that WE CAN DO SO much better than you. It's a miracle that, in 310 million people, you're still the minority. Most Americans still understand the difference.

    Get the picture, Piers?

    • Jesus Christ

      In Canada, citizens happily follow gun laws and restrictions and I don't anybody crying “HITLER” there. I wonder if Ted Cruz's fan base knows this?
      Get the picture, George?

      • Rich

        Law abiding Canadians follow the gun laws. Criminals do not. Plus, teh social safety net in Canada is set at a much higher level than the US. Poverty in Canada bears little resemblance to poverty in the US.

      • frediano

        Thank you for selling all those high capacity Para Ordnance double stack .45s into the US. Great firearms. Yes, so popular, now made in the US, too. Like Volkswagons in TN…

      • cat man

        hey guy, this isn't Canada or austraila, or England if you like them so much go live there .

  • Jacob M Stout

    Nancy is a twonk. Americans are stupid and selfish and care more about deadly toys than the well-being of the community. Americans–and, sadly, I am one–disgust me. You're not alone Piers, bravo for standing up to mental American greed and fetishes.

    • JohnnyMcDonald

      Stupid Americans, and sadly you are one, disgust me. The right to self-defense is not a fetish. You bubble-headed nitwit, firearms are not the problem, the rejection of moral law is the problem, now pull your head out of your rectum before you asphyxiate on your own hubris.

    • Jason_TX

      If you don't like being here why don't you leave? I would love it if people that are sick of being ‘Americans’ would just leave the country and go live somewhere that they feel the people are ‘morally’ better.

      My brothers and sisters in the armed forces fought, bled, and died for the rights so many Americans take for granted everyday. To read someone's thoughts like this ‘Guest’ bothers me for two reasons.

      1) You don't even have the courage to post under an identity beyond guest. Thus you are cowering behind your computer.

      2) You are empowered by reason 1 to make yourself sound morally righteous. You are no better than anyone else in this country though you try and act like it.

      Intellectuals that hide behind their computer screens are the worst. All thought, no balls to stand up for anything. If you felt more conviction you would renounce your citizenship to the US and leave for the countries you so admire.

      • saucetin

        You brothers and sisters rolled the dice. Service members get benefits and hiring preference totally out of proportion to their sacrifice. Cry me a river.

  • William R. Murray

    How does this guy remain valid? He rivals MSNBC…not saying much at all with that.

    • Bryan

      You are an idiot. How many deaths are from rifles compared to handguns? Sorry, I probably made your head hurt by suggesting you think for a change. And yes, I hunt with an AK-47 as well as collect them.

  • Newzheimer

    This is rich, coming from a scandal-monger who only cares about missing white women.

  • Gerald Brienza

    Does it really matter who points out the out the deficiencies in our gun laws? It could be a Brit or a Martian, we still have the problem.

  • Sparafucile

    It is a shame it takes a raving imbecile like Nancy Grace to put Piers in his place. Then again, she showed just how little mental muscle it takes.

  • frediano

    Please, please, please….make this an issue in the 2014 elections. The GOP should be sending Piers a hefty check to keep this loser issue flying…

  • ‘HeyRon’

    I truly believe that Mr. Morgan's ‘HEART', is in the ‘right place'! His ‘HEAD', however, seems to be planted somewhere up his ‘pompous AZZ'!??!

  • Ben

    Peirs is an enemy agent, bent on causing Americans to wallow in recrimination, to ingnore our great triumphs, and to depreciate us into a mish mosh of a mess of countries pursant to the idea of Globalization–where instead of some us being miserable, all of us should be miserable. My hope for Piers is that he is in Tehran, or some other enemy country, when we attack.

  • http://batman-news.com ShutTheHeckUpPiersMorgan

    Piers,
    Please feel free to:
    1.) Bend over and kiss your ass, especially if it goodbuy.
    2.) America does not need nor want your opinion. Especially from a Brit. We would have thought our kicking your countries ass and throwing them out once would have been enough. Obviously we were wrong. An idiot never learns.
    3.) Your appearent success has nothing to do with your ability. Your success has to do with some people wanting to see the idiot.
    4.) If you want to Deport Yourself, no one is stopping you. Rather we will hold the door open for you to leave, making sure it hits you in the ass as you do.
    5.) Spray your verbal garbage in Britian where it is obviously appreciated and loved. It is not appreciated here nor will it ever bee except by those that are are willing to sell out America as they did when you first invaded America.
    5.) Don't confuse public following with acceptance. People just like to watch a fool, especially if they continue to entertain others with their foolishness.
    6.) Shut the hell up and leave already. We know you are just sticking around to make more money. And by the way, America does not want you to consider it a “Second Home”. As far as it is concerned, you are homeless here and just a drag on it's resourses.

  • RedWatt

    Piers preaches to the choir and seems flustered when confronted. Like a little child trying to get his way by screaming over everyone else. Deport the phone hacker.

  • Jackal81

    Comparing two different countries with different geography, demographics, and causes of violence is useless. Equally is bad is comparing the US to the ‘violent crime capital of Europe” which is the UK. Besides, the 2nd Amendment is there to protect us against a tyrannical government. If you think it can't happen here, then you haven't been paying attention to the countless countries where it has happened in the past several years, or those countries where it is happening now (Ukraine and Venezuala).

    • Ted Faraone

      Actually, the second amendment was written due to the founding fathers’ distaste for a standing army. The idea behind it was that a citizen militia, who owned their muskets, could be called up in time of crisis.

  • BigSlim22

    I wonder if Nancy feels the same way about Americans lecturing other countries. Take her statement — “It’s not really right for a Brit to jump up and start talking to us about gun control!” — substitute “American” for “Brit,” and replace “gun control” with just about anything — democracy, civil rights, crime, education, nuclear proliferation, etc.

    I guess we have no right to be telling Syria, North Korea, Iran or any other country what to do, right, Nancy?

  • Chiefmuck

    I agree that Morgan has no business or right to comment about American policy.

    Also,Nancy Grace in my opinion, is the biggest : “schmuck” currently on the Boob Tube.

  • Chiefmuck

    I think Pierce Morgan is like all Englanders.They will never get over our “Kicking” ther asses.

  • Donna Potter

    Nancy Grace is a big mouth who interrupts associates talking, and her way or no way. Piers Morgan was the only person who took on the NRA. Where was your VOICE regarding the twenty six people murdered and twenty innocent children. How about the shootings since then? Piers Morgan is right! Anyone who feels the NRA has rights to these military weapons, what about those children, man going to the movie, two different times at the movie houses.Kids going to school, gangs killing innocent kids. When does it end, when does our RIGHTS kick in? Those parents who are still mourning their loss. I would give up everything to keep my daughter safe, and grand children. How many kids find their parents guns and kill their selves or another child? Call these parents responsible and I know they have rights to have these guns.

  • Ken D

    Two thoughts, firstly being subjected to Nancy Grace ranting other than when she is on a show one can choose to watch or not is arguably cruel and inhuman punishment and secondly the nonsense of rejecting other ( arguably more developed countries in terms of humanity) countries experience because we are America with the best health care system and the best gun control processes and the best social welfare approach, ALL NOT, is such nonsenical zenothobic BS that any rational (as in thinking and not just listening to propaganda from Fox interlaced with patriotic images) human must reject it for what it is, utter nonsense.
