So Piers, you have armed security? Do you yet see the value of firepower superior to that of your potential attackers?

Prolly not.

He’s too much of a hand-wringing bed-wetter.

Not to worry, one of those wooden stick that British Bobbys carry will thwart any death threat. He could begin to carry one of those...or he could get a gun. Just in case.

Total puff piece. With lines like THIS:

When [Percy Morgan] emerged, he found himself surrounded by 60 combat-wearing, bullhorn-wielding, rifle-waving fanatics chanting abuse.

... there can be no mistaking where the Mirror's loyalties lie.

Apparently Morgan's convenient imagination is as good with ratings numbers as it is with gun facts. His viewership spiked to a whopping 255K when Alex Jones came on. It has been dropping like a rock since.

Read this the other day. Full of lies and hatred of gun owners. Millions of fans? With his ratings? How about a few thousand people too lazy to change channels?

We would like to see him go home but his own country won’t take him back.
Someone call INS? Oh, what am I thinking ... they’re busy trying on new uniforms.

Piers Morgan is an attention whore who is simply trying to drive up viewership to save his job.

Obviously counting the empty chairs in the airport or the multiple personalities of the mentally deranged who might view his show.

I;m sorry to hear that Piers is suffering from death threats. He should get a concealed firearm when he goes outside the home, and some firearms for his home, too. Just my two cents.

“millions of fans”

or

“The February 28th episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, which featured an exclusive interview with Gus Searcy, the mentor of Jodi Arias suffered a yearly low in the key 25-54 demographic with only 87,000 viewers.”

That's funny. He only has ~150k viewers. "Millions" impies as lease 2 million. So why are only 7% of his fans watching him?

On the other hand, I readily believe that millions loathe him.

Hey Morgan, if you are being threatened you’d better get yourself some protection.
Might I suggest a wet noodle to hit your assailant with or perhaps a very loud whistle?
You could also move to a gun-free zone where no crimes can take place. (there’s signs up, you know)
You could even put a gun-free zone sign around your neck and any crazed lunatic hellbent on killing you would not dare break a gun-free zone ordinance.

I am going to try and use logic here Morgan so try and see if your itty bitty eurofag mind can stay with me.

You see.... the people that are threatening you are bad people. They have guns. Law abiding people that have guns would not threaten you.

Are you with me so far?

The law abiding people that have the guns are no threat to you or anyone else. They obey the law and are level headed people.
Now, the bad people that threaten you are criminals. They don’t obey the laws... namely GUN LAWS. We already have laws in place that say criminals cannot own guns. Are they working? Do criminals still have guns?
What do you mean gun control? We already have gun control. Criminals are not allowed to own guns. You mean to tell me criminals break the law? Surely not!
So, if you confiscate all guns, do you think these criminals are going to stand in line to turn their’s in? Surely a murderer would not want to break a gun ordinance.

You are trying to take guns away from sane, law-abiding people while knowing the criminals will keep their’s. The gangbanging criminals are the ones you need to worry about not Steve and Kathy from Idaho.
But you want to leave Steve and Kathy unarmed while knowing full well the criminal is going to have a buffet of available victims because they are now all unarmed.

You see..... oh hell, you are not listening. You will just continue to spout your Euro crap. It gets you attention afterall and thats your livelyhood. Hell, I didn’t even know who you were before all this but I do now so its working for you huh?
