Local anchor responds to Piers Morgan with devastating fact-check

Posted: January 11, 2013 at 8:00 am   /   by

The anchor in the video below points out some extremely effective stats about America and England, ones that make Morgan’s arguments look rather foolish. In addition to the fact that England’s violent crime rate is A LOT higher than ours, we also have to point out that since their gun laws went into effect, not only have knifings and home-invasion crimes skyrocketed, but . . . SO HAVE GUN CRIMES. They have more crime now with illegal guns than they did before.

Moreover, the U.K.’s murder rate was also lower than the U.S. murder rate when they had no gun control laws at all. Their gun control laws haven’t improved anything, nor do they prove anything vis-a-vis the U.S. Morgan is, like all gun control advocates, talking nonsense. He may sound caring and sensitive, but his gun control prescriptions won’t actually produce the intended results. They never do.

This is a thing of beauty to watch.
