Ben Shapiro Destroys Piers Morgan
do not hold back words
[Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan:] Source: LYBIO.net
…next guest has strong words for me. He says I’m off the rails on guns in America. Ben Shapiro is editor-at-large at Breitbart.com and the author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans. So, why am I off the rails, Mr. Shapiro?
[Benjamin Aaron Shapiro:]
You know, honestly Piers, you have kind of been a bully on this issue, because what you do, and I’ve seen it repeatedly on your show. I watch your show. And I’ve seen it repeatedly. What you tend to do is you tend to demonize people who differ from you politically by standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook saying they don’t seem to care enough about the dead kids. If they cared more about the dead kids, they would agree with you on policy. I think we can have a rational, political conversation about balancing rights and risks and rewards of all of these different policies, but I don’t think that what we need to do is demonize people on the other side as being unfeeling about what happened at Sandy Hook.
How dare you accuse me of standing on the graves of the children that died there? How dare you?
I’ve seen you do it repeatedly, Piers.
Like I say, how dare you?
Well, I mean, you can keep saying that, but you’ve done it repeatedly. What you do, and I’ve seen you do it on your program, is you keep saying to folks that if they disagree with you politically, then somehow this is a violation of what happened in Sandy Hook. And you, I would really like to hear your policy prescriptions for what we should do about guns because you say that you respect the second amendment. You know, I brought this here for you so you can read it. It’s the Constitution. And I would really like for you to explain to me what you would do about guns that would have prevented what happened in Sandy Hook. If you want to do what you did in the UK, right, which is ban virtually all guns, that is at least a fair argument and we can have a discussion about whether that’s something that we ought to do or not.
Well, I made it clear what I want to do which is exactly what Mark Kelly wants to do. And in fact, rather than…
Okay, let’s talk about that.
…rather than address your comments to me about standing on the graves of children at Sandy Hook, you can address them to Mark Kelly because he agrees with everything that I have been saying because he feels the same way, as does his wife. They’re gun owners. They both respect the second amendment of the constitution, they don’t want to take away anybody’s right to defend themselves with guns…
Well, they want to take away certain types of guns, obviously…
They want to take away assault weapons, which are capable with magazines that we saw in Aurora and Sandy hook, of unleashing a ridiculous amount of…
Well, this is the question I wanted to ask you, Piers, because I have seen you talk about assault weapons a lot, and I have seen Mark Kelly talk about assault weapons. The vast majority of murders in this country that are committed with guns are not committed assault weapons, they are committed with handguns. So are you willing to ban handguns in this country, across this country?
No, that’s not what I’m asking for. Let me ask you…
Why not? Don’t you care about the kids who are being killed in Chicago as much as the kids in Sandy Hook?
Yes, I do.
Then why don’t you care about banning the handguns in Chicago?
We’ll come to that…
