Alex Jones takes on Piers Morgan on gun control VIDEO

Radio host Alex Jones delivered an intense pro-gun rant on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Monday.

Morgan invited Jones onto his show to discuss the conservative pundit’s campaign to“Deport Piers Morgan” in the wake of the CNN host’s advocacy of gun control following the Sandy Hook massacre.

Jones began the segment by arguing that world governments and “the megabanks that control the planet” are conspiring to take guns away from regular citizens. “They’ve taken everybody’s guns, but the Swiss and the American people,” he said. The 2nd Amendment, he then went on to argue, was created to “protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs.”

“1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!” Jones yelled. “It doesn’t matter how many lemmings (mindless followers) you get out on the street begging for them to have their guns taken! We will not relinquish them! Do you understand?”

Reactions below

CNN collected some social media responses:

New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen called the interview a “meltdown” and called Jones “revolting.”

James Poniewozik, TV columnist for Time — which, like CNN, is part of Time Warner — wrote, sarcastically: “Shocking: You reward a lunatic on TV for pulling a stunt,” and he fails to “behave with civility.”

Facebook user Steve Spark made similar comments in a CNN discussion. “If you have a nutjob as a guest, you can’t be surprised when they act like a nutjob,” he wrote, adding, “Some might say it makes for good TV, but I think it’s just embarrassing.”

The Huffington Post summarized the program this way: “Piers Morgan’s pro-gun guest goes absolutely nuts at him.”

Jones retweeted a supportive note from Gerald Celente, who has 36,000 followers. “Bravo,” the tweet said, praising Jones for “punching out CNN Presstitute Piers Morgan.”

CNN iReporter Jason Asselin posted a video saying he believes that Morgan has no right to debate gun control in America, and that only U.S. citizens should do so.

    Jones makes a valid point, but losing it like that made him appear to be crazed lunatic. This completely invalidated his argument. Turning a debate into a shouting match is the surest way to lose

    For those who may have seen last nights Jones/Morgan debate, I have this to offer. I’ve known Alex Jones a long time. He’s passionate, he’s loud, he uses words and adjectives that make people ‘wake up’. They are shocking, they’re uncomfortable but they are true. Alex is not mentally unstable or anything else the lame-stream media wants to paint him as. It’s a systematic demonizing of anyone who doesn’t fall into line. There is not a word that Alex says that doesn’t have a paper trail a mile long behind it. He doesn’t grab this stuff out of thin air.

    Lame-stream media has been attacking him for well over a decade and last night he wasn’t having one second more of it. Every time he’s ever spoken on TV, they sabotage the interview with meaningless sound-bites and inaccurate facts and never letting him finish a sentence, turning off his mic.

    Last night Alex turned it around on them, didn’t let Piers Morgan get a word in edgewise. While being the passionate Alex I know and love, he ended up coming off as almost insane to people who do not know him. This saddened me because while I feel 100% the same way about my gun rights, he ended up playing right into their hands. In the end more people turned away than paid any attention to the Information.

    He’s merely the messenger. Attack the facts, investigate for yourself, prove him wrong if you think he’s a crazy crackpot, but do not dismiss him entirely. The sad fact of the matter is, he’s the sane one.

    He’s being driven to desperation because none of the Americans can see this country’s majesty is slipping away. The very fundamental principles our Founding Fathers used to frame the Constitution are under attack. WE are under attack. Not just the right to defend your family, not just rights of speech, but ALL of our rights.

    His passion is for you to wake up and pay attention! Stop dismissing the warnings as ramblings of the insane. News anchors cheerleading us into destroying the Constitution is the insanity. Not the guy screaming to save your freedom.

    I’m with you Alex, 100%, I’m just worried that you ended up doing more harm than good. Main stream will never be ready for you. All you can do is -calmly- plant the seed and wait for it to grow. You have plenty of listeners you can vent with elsewhere. Keep up the fight brother.

    • Sam Turell says:

      Dear Sharlene S,

      It’s great that Alex is passionate about the 2nd Amendment, an important part of our Constitutional rights.

      Alex needs to bear in mind that while 47% of US households bear & maintain arms, the other 53% do not! The other 53 % at this time have a legitimate concern for their safety.

      America is a democracy. Every citizen has the right to life & liberty. So I suggest the NRA, Alex Jones & others consider this issue seriously. If the other 53% feel that their right to liberty is threatened by uncontrolled gun violence they will not sit back and allow the 2nd amendment to destroy their own constitutional rights.

      If Alex really believes in the Constitution and respects his fellow Americans, he would have had a civilized discussion with Piers. It seems Alex doesn’t really care about his fellow Americans or the Constitution.

      The founding fathers did not come together in Independence Hall threatening each other with guns ablazing. Each state respected for the others’ concerns. I suggest the NRA & Alex do the same at this critical time.

      Regards
      Sam T
