Piers Morgan Loses it on Gun Lobbyist Larry Pratt

Post View Count: 275

Piers Morgan has been trying to get members of the NRA to come onto his show following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on Friday morning. He wanted to debate their position about a post-Newtown world. Morgan finally wound up settling after no one from the NRA would bite.

On Morgan’s show last night, Larry Pratt was a guest. Pratt is the executive director of Gun Owners of America, which is a gun lobbying firm that criticizes the NRA for its leniency quite often.

As you can see in the video, Morgan was looking for anyone to unload his anger at, which is why Pratt was his target. The explosion occurred after Pratt said that gun laws could wind up preventing “good guys” from defending themselves during trouble. Morgan responded by calling Pratt an  “unbelievably stupid man.”

PRATT: “It seems to me that you’re morally obtuse. You seem to prefer being a victim to being able to prevail over the criminal element. And I don’t know why you want to be the criminal’s friend.”

MORGAN: “What a ridiculous argument. You have absolutely no coherent argument whatsoever. You don’t give a damn, do you, about the gun murder rate in America? You don’t actually care.”

Not long after the show, Morgan took to Twitter to let our some more anger. He tweeted the following: “Still seething after tonight’s show. Just can’t understand the mentality of those who insist the only answer to #Newtown is MORE guns.”
