I wish someone would ask these talking heads how many armed guards they have around them at all times and how many armed guards there are in the studio. And ask them if it’s easy to get into their gated neighborhood or appartment.
Why do they always gather around Gabrielle Gifford? Have they forgotten the conservative judge and CHILD who were actually murdered?
Some of Morgan's energy has been spent and Shapiro has had a chance to study all the faux arguments.
In other words...timing helps.
SOME OBSERVATIONS REGARDING BEN SHAPIRO, PIERS MORGAN AND MORGANs PREVIOUS GUEST ALEX JONES....
Shapiro states correctly that the Second Amendment is written specifically for the American people to be well armed. They are to form a militia in times of crisis and will be used to protect the people of these united States. Folks this is about your property rights. It is also to have the effect of a counterweight; a deterrent to a government that becomes tyrannical.
It is not to be infringed.
Piers Morgan weaves a familiar script where he insisted on Shapiro to answer his question. If you noticed, the trap is set when Morgan doesnt allow the guest to answer. He will intentionally interrupt the guest with another question or allegation. He will continue stacking the questions and allegations.
Indeed, Piers Morgans strategy is to paint a tapestry of the guest being insensitive and absurd.
In legal circles, such tactics would be a form of leading the witness, which would not be allowed in a court of law. Granted, the Piers Morgan show is not a court of law. Nevertheless, in any public debate there are rules of engagement. Each side is allowed to respond without constant interruption. Piers Morgan has an annoying habit of not letting his guest finish his point.
Alex Jones was adept in recognizing that the Piers Morgan Show is not a stage for a fair debate. Jones did not allow Piers Morgan to weave a web of questions and allegations. Each time Alex Jones fired back with a library of published statistics and facts.
In this regard, Alex Jones took Piers Morgan to the wood shed.
Unfortunately, Jones came off as a ranting, raving loon and his insistence that the US government had something to do with the destruction of the NY twin towers did him no favors.
It is also important noting that Piers Morgan and other anti-gun pundits ask repeatedly:
Why does anyone need a military assault rifle like that of a AR-15?
How many times was this question answered by the guests in those interviews?
Ben Shapiro answered it TWICE. It is to have the effect of a counterweight; a deterrent to a government that becomes tyrannical. Our government might not be tyrannical like Stalin or the Nazis now, but there is no guarantee that it wont slowly evolve that way. THAT is why we need a means of protecting ourselves and DETERRING Tyranny.
Shapiro, being a Jew, effectively informs Piers of how his ancestors were affected in Europe under the Nazis because they had no means of protecting themselves.
Piers Morgan was given this answer and never responded to it.
How fetching that Mr Nolte extols the performance of his boss(!) on the P. Morgan show!
Nolte is a fine guy, but this article on Shapiro is parallel to MSM puff pieces on leftists.
First, Shapiro was very weak from a Second Amendment point of view, as he was ceding ground left and right, to wit:
1. He is fine with banning the private sale of weapons without an intrusive Government background check. (Where is that in the Second Amendment?)
2. He wants laws requiring people to lock up their own weapons in their own homes. (Where is that in the Second Amendment?)
3. He is in favor of a Federal Government gun registry, provided it is not made public. (That would be a secret gun registry, Harvard Law Grad Shapiro.) (Where is that in the Second Amendment.)
4. He appears to fail to understand the definition of an “assault rifle.”
5. He favors stronger background checks and mental-health screening. (This guy is supposed to be on our side?)
6. He indicated that he is comfortable with a military veteran friend of his owning an AR-15. Obvious implication: He is not comfortable with the current 1Million-item backlog on ARs.
7. He says he lost relatives in the Holocaust, and he is this willing to cave and make concessions? Mind boggling.
Resolved: The time for being defensive about the Second Amendment (and what it REALLY means) is over. We need to go on offense in the public square. No more “fig leaves.” No more “reasonable concessions.” No more flirting with gun registries, background checks, or “Mother may I buy a gun.” The Left never makes concessions — only hudna (temporary concession pending preparation for the next round of battle). Ask Liberals, “Just WHOSE Second Amendment is it that you are attacking and despising?” Answer: It is MY Second Amendment. Get the hell off my founding-documentary lawn!
Someone needs to take that idiot Brit to where the US Internment camps for Japanese where located. Then ask him if he still thinks that it is absurd to assume that the US government could turn against its own law abiding citizens.
Shapiro was great.

The problem I have with this is the simple fact that if someone wants to find an idiot in any group consisting of thousands they will find that idiot.
There is no way we could possibly train every Conservative to preform as perfectly as Ben Shapiro did. This is true for the same reason we can’t all play professional football. Talent, knowledge, skill, and interest in any given area are by no means uniform charcherist in any given population.
Ben Shapiro did an excellent job of studying his target and coming prepared to address its particular form of attack. (Something I think many if not most of us are capable of doing.) Indeed if every conservative was so well organized and prepared I think you would find the left never interviewing them, and that in itself is the problem.
They don’t try to pick people capable of defending their point of view, they try to arrange confrontations in favorable conditions against favorably weaker opponents. This is the art of war, and they have a decisive advantage with control over the microphone.
What Ben Shapiro successfully did was make them think he was weak when he was really quite strong, thus bring the fight to a field he was prepared for. A field they would have avoided had they known.
Of course one sure way to beat the media would be to encourage our kids to enter that profession. We might also want to explore investing in computer driven home schooling programs and start pulling our kids out of the public education propaganda meat grinder. The fact that we face a hostile press means that we did something wrong back then, eh.
Ben Shapiro is a new American hero. He stood straight and strong and made the case for inividual sovereignty under the Bill of Rights! Bravo Mr. Shapiro and Semper Fi! This limey fop, Piers Morgan, is a statist, a self-absorbed narcissist in search of higher ratings. The only criticism I offer is that WE MUST REJECT THE LANGUAGE OF THE LEFT! NEVER REFER TO THESE WEAPONS AS “ASSAULT RIFLES.” I have never assaulted anyone with my rifle. My rifle is a HOME DEFENSE RIFLE! To win the battle, we must command the high ground of language. Never again use the canard, “ASSAULT RIFLE.” It’s a trap. This is where we are defeated time again by the left. They assume the terms and we go along. I will never relinquish my HOME DEFENSE RIFLE, under my constitutional right to bear arms; under my Natural Right to defense of my Life and Property. Hey Piers...it’s not up for debate!
