New York Governor: Gun Confiscation is an Option

As the government and media continue to capitalize off the murders of 20 kids and 8 adults, politicians are promising stricter gun laws that they claim will make us all safer. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that a forced gun buy-back program was an option, which would only make criminals feel safer. Infowars reported:

 “Cuomo indicated the state will likely force some kind of permit process on owners of semi-automatic ‘assault weapons.’ In addition to generating revenue and expanding the size and reach of government, the effort will allow the state to confiscate the weapons of citizens who do not comply.”

 Cuomo added, “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

If America tries a forced gun buy-back program, we’d likely go the way of Australia, which tried the same thing in 1996. Over 640,000 ordinary firearms were confiscated and destroyed. Watch this 6 ½ minute video to see what happened in the “land down under” when law-abiding citizens were forced to give up their guns in exchange for government money. Here are some highlights:

  • Armed robberies up by 69%
  • Assaults with guns up by 28%
  • Gun murders up by 19%
  • Home invasions up by 21%

Even gun control advocates in the Australian government had to acknowledge that the gun buy-back program has had little to no effect on violence. In 2005, the head of the New South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research said the following:

“The fact is that the introduction of those laws did not result in any acceleration of the downward trend in gun homicide. They may have reduced the risk of mass shootings but we cannot be sure because no one has done the rigorous statistical work required to verify this possibility. It is always unpleasant to acknowledge facts that are inconsistent with your own point of view. But I thought that was what distinguished science from popular prejudice.”

 Yes, and when facts aren’t on your side, you can either admit that you’re wrong like an honest person would do, or like Piers Morgan, start name-calling, grandstanding and yelling. If you haven’t seen Piers Morgan’s interview with the head of Gun Owners of America’s, watch it. Larry Pratt does an excellent job defending the 2nd Amendment in spite of Morgan calling him “an unbelievably stupid man” and an idiot:

It seems Piers Morgan is still bitter about America winning independence from England so many years ago.

I just might make an exception to the 2nd Amendment. If you’ve proven yourself to be an angry, belligerent person like Morgan has, you shouldn’t be allowed to carry a gun.

    A British friend of mine laughed when he saw the video of Morgan's interview with Pratt. He said that no one in the UK would take Larry Pratt seriously because a prat is an idiot. And such is the mentality of those of the UK who would rather equivacate someones name other than debate the issues rationally.

    • Donna Casas

      Perhaps Morgan should move back to England and have his own show there. He would be hugely popular since it appears the British are in agreement with him. I don't know of too many people that watch his show in America unless he says something goofy and it goes viral.

      I think we would find ourselves in the middle of Civil War II - I think Americans are starting to get fed up with this crap. BUT the government WILL keep pushing, until we vote these dummicrat donkeys out of operation.

      • RonMar

        Vote them out? No, let's charge them with the crimes they have committed, arrest, try, convict and punish them to the max of the law.

          I'll reply to both of your posts and more here. You must be drunk, drugged, insane or all three. Please take your choice.
          I didn't say anything about "communist teachers" or trying them. "LOL. You really are something else."
          If teachers want to teach your kids, grandkids unless you've been shooting blanks all your life and have no kids, an unfounded theory that's fine with me.
          "Bring it on BIATCH" - no need for you to shout your name, besides it may be against this site's posting guidelines. You come get it, boy.
          You imagine shooting a child, dog and an unarmed woman with a baby in her arms is a good thing as the Feds did at Weaver's place. You are one sick puke.
          Go to bed out there on the Left Coast, land of fruits and nuts. You need some rest. Sleep tight don't let the bedbugs bite in your rusted out trailer.

          Well if you want your kids and wife to stay out of harm, You'll think about that won't you? Perhaps resisting is a bad idea if you care about them.

        • RonMar

          FYI, drunk, drugged, deranged one, my adult kids, one of them a combat veteran, and my wife, a markswoman with a variety of self-defense weapons and skilled in martial arts can handle anyone intending them harm. You would not last a nanosecond if you threatened face-to-face any of the three or them, anyone or anything about which they care.
          You won't do that though because you are an Internet blowhard troll imagining you are some kind of superboy hero.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Cox/1644272760 Adam Cox

          I saw what you said about trying all the communist teachers .. LOL Ron, You really are something else... So how are you going to determine if a teacher qualifies for execution? If they teach evolution? What's your criteria, fascist?

        • Conservativesniper

          Arnold Claymore aka Adam Cox, where did RonMar advocate for anybody to be executed? Just shut your ignorant propagandist mouth, useful idiot.

      • Zardoz

        Um, I don't think that there is any more "voting them out".
        I think that ended in 2010.
        No more elections here.
        Unless you mean the kind that Saddam Hussein or other dictators have.
        We haven't lived in a Constitutional Republic in a looong time.
        Before this last election, we lived in a Democracy.
        A Democracy by proxy in which we have ZERO representation.
        Now, we live in a Despotic Totalitarianism ... it just isn't complete yet.

          There will be plenty more elections. None of which you have the numbers to win, but never-the-less.

        • RonMar

          Only 20% or so are stupid enough to dare call themselves Liberals - Progressives since Liberal became such a dirty word. All others self-identify as Conservatives, Moderates or Independents. Boy are you dumb.

        This last (sic) election was proof positive there will not be another legitimate election until we cleanse OUR government of ALL the progressive/socialists.
        Massive voter FRAUD in most states and NOTHING is done about it. Of course I had very little faith anything would be done about it with the surrender of the DOJ to the criminals in charge.

  • Screeminmeeme

    The perpetually pontifical and often hysterical Piers Morgan has finally gone over the edge.

    Always keen to share his sentiments about everything, he has been on the rampage against guns since the shooting, viciously attacking those gun enthusiasts who are invited on his show ostensibly to discuss the tragedy and its prevention.

    WE ALL mourn the unspeakable loss of those teachers and children but killing the rights of gun owners in response to the killing is not the answer to a very complex issue.

    Like Morgan and most on the left, Gov Cuomo has tunnel vision and seeing guns as the problem so his solution is confiscation of ''assault weapons''......no doubt with an eye to total disarmament of the public in the future, given his historical position on the issue.

    Executive VP of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre is correct.......
    The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.

    Any other questions?

    • DavidE1940

      No, you have covered it quite well, thank you. If they really want to experience mayhem, take our guns away!

      • Huapakechi

        They could try, but it would get very messy. Kicking down doors is a dangerous hobby, even if the kicker is wearing body armor. There is a very large probability of getting shot in the back by a neighbor. A scoped deer rifle has a greater effective range and tremendously more knockdown power than the pistols and sub machine guns the raiding party would likely be carrying, and one could pick off the management team directing the raid quite easily.

        There are large numbers of combat veterans who have not forgotten their oath to defend the Constitution. Why else would homeland security classify them as 'potential terrorists'.

        • Hammer

          12 guage 3" magnum slug...body armor or not your going down......double O buck to the head...good by head....

        • Huapakechi

          I like my 30.06. Better range than the 12 gage and it'll blow big holes in just about any body armor that's light enough to wear. It don't slow down much for car bodes either.

        • Guest

          Body armor is just that- BODY armor. Lots of other places left exposed, including at least one that is a faster termination of life than getting hit in the body. Scoped rifles, in the right hands, can put a slug through a quarter sized hole without touching the edge of the hole, without much difficulty.
          Thank goodness the bad guys haven't figured that out yet. Could get real hairy for the boys in body armor if they did.

        • Huapakechi

          Remington 760 in 30.06, Weaver 3-9 40mm scope. I'll need to bench rest it to get that kind of accuracy, but I can nail a coke can at 150 yards. I'm eating this year's deer right now.

See, I know you don't know a damned thing about why his home was targeted by the Feds because if you did you wouldn't have said what you said. You've irrefutably revealed yourself as an ignoramus, Mr. Claymore. And a supporter of tyranny. Those two things kind of go hand in hand, Arnold.

          Actually that's not correct, propagandist. Here's what Randy Weaver said, while under oath, "

          Mr. WEAVER.
          Thank you.
          I am not without fault in this matter. I was convicted of failure to appear for trial oncharges I had sold a sawed-off shotgun to an ATF informant
          named Gus Magisano. He testified at trial under a different
          name—Kenneth Fadeley. That was probably not his real name either. I was found not guilty of the original weapons charge, and I was found not guilty of every other crime I was charged with, including murder and assault on Federal officers. I was charged with conspiring against the Government, and I was found not guilty of that charge. I was in jail for about a year before and during the trial. I have served time after the trial and am now on unsupervised probation. I faced my
          accusers at a trial. I faced the FBI, the Marshals Service, the U.S.
          attorney, a Federal judge and a jury of my peers. I faced the death penalty. I have been accountable for my actions. I now face you Senators to ask that those responsible for the killings of my wife and my son be brought to account for their actions."

      Ever wonder why Piers came to America? I mean, if England is so wonderful, why leave. It's rather like the Californians who move to the desert of Arizona because California is so bad, then they complain because (and try to change) Arizona isn't enough like California!
      Hey Piers, if America is so bad, go back to England and start to draw you wages in Pounds Sterling, give your soul back to the crown, WE WON in 1779!

    • Mike6

      Wayne La Pierre was correct. Every marxist government like the Obama's White House wants to confiscate guns to make arrests easier. Fast and Furious was an Eric Holder plot to criminalize gun shops and the Second Amendment. It is the coverup of Fast and Furious that upsets me. Nobody died in Watergate and Richard Nixon was a Gentleman. We now have a muslim in the White House.

      The CHEKA liked to pull surprise inspections in the Soviet Union and if they found an old Army rifle hidden in the closet of a rich Kulak who has once served in the heroic White Russian Army, the Cheka would order the unfortunate farmer outside and shot him in the back of the head.

    The more you see Piers Morgan the more convinced I become that he is homosexual
    who refuses to come out of the closet. His ranting is that of a very irrational person who
    who should be sent for a serious Psychiatric investigation. I strongly suspect that by his
    action he is taking either medications or drugs that are leaving him in a very irrational state
    of mine. Or as suggested by others he is still upset that the Brits lost America during the
    Revolutionary war. Either way he should be removed form the public view before he hurts
    himself. Thank goodness he isnt from Japan or he might commit Hari Kari on state.

    Here’s what some "leaders" have had to say about gun control/confiscation. Note what they all have had in common:

    The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races
    to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their
    subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.
    Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is

    446 school age children shot in Chicago so far this year with strongest gun laws in country – media silent

    The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go. So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light? Amazingly, no Obama crocodile tears either.

    For those of you too dense to get the point of this post, it’s to make the point about gun laws. No matter how tough the gun laws are, the crazed, nut jobs will find a way to get them and if they so chose, use them. No draconian law can stop this, no matter how well intentioned the law is, or if it’s just about leftists grabbing power from citizens and taking away their constitutional rights.

    There is one little problem in this idiots plan .Even in New York state there are hunting licenses sold every year the people who not only hunt but also long guns. These people are not going to give up their guns peacefully. You combine all the hunting licenses sold and the nation you're the largest standing army in the world. Now the government wants to drastically lower the population of the country they should try to confiscate all the guns.

  • PPTA

    Gun confiscation is not a option unloess the Govener wants a civil uprising. Trained aarmed guards, are a option. Take a hard look at the terrorits and what they used during the 911 attack. Box cutters. not guns. Are we going to confinsate all box cutters also? What is interesting to me, First Fast and frious, who was involved. Government. Then the Colo. theater shootings, a coule of days before theUN debate o banning guns. And the picture of the shooter, did not match the picture of the college man. Also the second shooter was frst there with the police searching ll over for him, then suddenly there was no second person, then we never heard any more about the case. No we have the killings in Conn. A terible, terrible thing. o one is talking about the man who dd the killings. Where, who, and what Religion has killed like this before? Remember the incident in Russia, Chenof killings in the school? I wonder who this man, who killed himself, really was? Don't you?

    They are already permitted - are they not?

    Mandatory sale is still THEFT, no matter what else you may call it ..... just like CONFISCATION.

    Cuomo screws up his arguement right from the get go when he uses the self neutralizing statement that he and his socialist friends like to use to inflame the public: "semi-automatic assault rifles"! No such thing! The semi-automatics he refers to are the civilian versions designed and intended for civilian use.
    Now if Cuomo wants to come and try to confiscate Texas weapons I say he'd be safer recalling his socialist spy Sheila Jackson-Lee to NY where she belongs!

    Yet another reason to not reside in the Northeast. This horrible incident was perpetrated in one of the most restrictive geographic regions in the country. I guess you have to replicate those same restrictions everywhere hoping for a different outcome. That is consistent with the definition of insanity or law of diminishing returns. In any case Barak Obama was shoved down my throat here in the south, his taxes are likely to be shoved down my throat too, but I challenge the libs to find someone who will carry out disarming the southern population. Dont count on the local police, or the deputy sheriffs, because they will refuse. You better have more than one ATF agent covering 5 counties like you do now. When are you going to learn that the people here are not sheep, and unlike the UK, where civil rights have always been restricted, the American people are used to being free?

    There are a few "other options" the mayor of New York failed to mention. The option of public "hanging of mayors" and other elected and appointed government officicals who commit the crimes of treason against their country and fellow citizens and the highest law of the land, our constitution of the United States. The second amendment is part of that document, is the absolute law of the land. Until it is recinded by a 2/3's majority vote of the congress and the senate. An "executive order" does not "trump" the constitution, (nor does it trump an outraged population, decending on Washington and carrying ropes and pitchforks).

Mao gave the Chineese people a new national aidentety kicked out the colonists and a better economy, that meant bread on the table. Under all of these dictators mass hunger was elliminated. What i'm trying to say is that these people had it better under the dictators than before. No, I'm not leaving Amrerica, its the best country in the world, especailly under a Democrat President. It is also intellectualy important to understand these dictators who also killed many people whom they considered political enemies. Killing 6 million jews and another 2 million gays, politcal enemies like communists, gypsies, most mental hospitals were emptied out and thoughsands of Russian priseners of war killed under Hitler did not seem to bother the German people at that time.

    The lighter side of Piers Morgan: He said something to the effect that the second amendment was written when there were muskets and therefore obsolete.

    I wish that Mr. Pratt would have told the wanker morgan, the true meaning of the Second Amendment is. That is to keep the Government in check. It allows us the American to defend against TYRANNY to keep us free from dictators. Our right to have a defense against any army that the Government forms against the free people of the United States. We have the right to have weapons that are equal to said army. That is what our founders intended the Second Amendment to do.

    I would think that Cuomo would like to rethink that. He does not have the resources of the Secret Service to rely on, and the taxpayer's would not tolerate the cost for him to try and have a 24/7 presidential level protection for such a move. They would not foot the bill for it. As it is, NY has lost well over a million of it's citizens on the issue of taxes alone.

    Besides, no one can think he's as stupid as the President who thinks that the bad guys will stop going after the good guys when they aren't able to protect themselves. As for him saying they'll "permit" them? Who does HE think he's kidding? Certainly not the ones who have the guns.

    He'd better look for another way. Should he want to show his good faith and straightforwardness towards demonstrating how safe everyone will be when they disarm themselves, he can foreswear all protection for himself and family. All of them. All the time.

    It had never crossed my mind, before today that is, that Cuomo was as intellectually as stupid as NY city's Mayor Bloomberg.
    Guess I was wrong. Birds of a feather and all that.

The Signs Referred to are the ones that say (GUN FREE SAFE ZONE) These signs tell the crazies that no one is armed and able to stop them. Second TRAIN AND ARM TEACHERS AND SCHOOL PERSONEL Then put up a sign that reads(NOTICE ALL TEACHERS AND PERSONEL ON THESE PREMISES ARE TRAINED ARMED AND INSTRUCTED TO SHOOT TO KILL ANY PERSON HARMING OR ATTEMPTING TO HARM A CHILD OR CHILDREN ON THESE PREMISES) THIRD Have only one ENTRANCE to building that can be opened from outside and have armed Security at that Door at all times Children are on the premises. Use the money sent to PAKISTAN and other foreign countries to pay for the training OF TEACHERS AND SCHOOL PERSONEL and the SALARY of SECURITY. That would be a more productive use for the money.!!!

    Unless they conduct a Gestapo raid on every home in New York, it won’t work. If they go into cartel areas, it will require full military tactics or ALL the police will get killed! That is an empty threat! If they actually try this, here is what will happen. Only the law abiding citizens will give up their firearms. The criminals will know, now hardly anyone has guns, and/or are afraid to use them, because they will go to jail for not relinquishing their firearm(s), even if they used it to protect their life, liberty, or property (pursuit of happiness). You want to see a catastrophe 100 times worse than Fast and Furious? Try to confiscated personal firearms in a country that GUARANTEES the right of the people to bear arms, and indeed REQUIRES the ever presence of an ARMED MILITIA, TO KEEP THE GOVERNMENT IN CHECK, not to guarantee hunting or personal protection rights. See, we can hunt, and protect ourselves without firearms. But we cannot defend ourselves against, or remove a tyrannical government without them. ESPECIALLY in mafia havens like New York, they have already been paid, so they know better than to tread on crime turf. Why don’t they just run an ad for the criminals declaring open season on everyone, after the confiscation!? And guess who the criminals need to take out first, after everyone else is disarmed? You guessed it; their only other threat, the good guys with guns, the Police! Again, the serpent is eating his tail!!! Fortunately, surely this is just grandstanding, and political rhetoric, but if they actually attempt this, then LORD have mercy on us all!

In the depraved world we live in, this is enough for weak-minded people to pull such an act of attention-getting (shock and awe).

    I bet Obama is related to Hitler or that Nut from Uganda a few years back! Both of these guys made sure their Subjects had no guns to fight with before they put the screws to them too!

    The British natives like this moron Piers Morgan have lost their country and their mass media in complicit with politicians are screwing their citizens left and right and year in & year out the mass media ,not the citizens ,get their politicians voted in again The British citizens have lost their democracy. Their country has been taken over and the native British are moving in droves to Australia ,New Zealand ,Canada & the USA. .Our mass media owner tyrants have the same DNA as Hitlers mass media had before Hitler amassed power & he turned around whacked them. Now,in the 21st we have the same mass media tyrants who have engaged morons like this idiot to bring over their stupidity to America. Americans ,if you lose your rights on gun matters you are in trouble: You will lose your rights not only over gun matters but all matters that had made America the envy of the world and which had also drawn idiots like this one to its shores. This idiot Morgan lost the argument and being a mouth piece of the socialist media owners echoing their socialism for others, you can bet he would rated very high for his sheer arrogance .

    Cuomo has no credibility. He and Bloomberg have gun carrying security with them everywhere they go.

      Ya, new-yorkers, how about a recall petition? Give them pause for thought.

    I can think of no better way to start a civil war in this country than trying to confiscate guns from citizens lawfully entitled to have them. This is precisely why we are entitled to keep guns; to keep gov't from doing this.

    These politicians have no clue as to what the constitution is for or about. These types of decisions and statements are treasonous. These corrupt progressive/socialists will stop at NOTHING to gain total control. Lying cheating extortion and even murder. Liberal progressives are a deadly disease to our country. ANY law that violates the constitution is NO law at all.

    Iffin' he confiscates, according to law, he has to pay "fair market value" for what he takes!!

  • BigUgly666

    All this is is another method of stealing the money from those who have earned it - in order to keep them subservient to the "masters" in "government".

    One more "Tax" to levy of WE THE PEOPLE - an "infringement" is anything that you do not wish to do - what is it about that that these potential targets fail to comprehend?

  • Saltporkdoc

    The operative phrase in Cuomo's statement is "...expanding the size and reach of government...." This has been the goal of the "progressives" all along.
    As for his over all statement about "permitting" and confiscation, I have but two things to say: My guns are already "permitted" under the Second Amendment! (Not that the Constitution ever means much to the politicians sworn to "uphold, protect and preserve" it!), and want to confiscate my property? Come and try!
    Maybe the real problem in Amerika [sic] is not "assault weapons" but assault politicians who methodically and hypocritically assault my finances with unnecessary taxes, assault my liberty through expanded "size and reach of government" and regulations enforced as law though never enacted by congress but by bureaucrats in that expanded government, assault my ears with their spacious and vacuous verbosity, rantings and nonlogic!

  • QuisPercusit

    Cuomo is just sucking up to dip-shit Bloomberg who is a rabid anti gunner with ego problems and a Napoleonic complex that is totally out of control. New Yorkers have a continuing habit of supporting and electing totalitarian, liberal,socialistic control freaks to high elected offices.(it goes way way back to the days of Tammany hall and the first Italian immigrants to NYC). I have no sympathy for any one in New York except the law abiding legitimate gun owning citizens and the victims of crime and terrorism.

  • claude h

    are you going you start it off and show everybody how it done, mr. cuomo??????

  • justme

    Piers Morgan is an overblown idiot. I think gun control is a dangerous proposition for American citizens. Honestly, though, some of these comments are making the argument FOR the gun control crowd. Tone it down, please.

  • BillboyBaggins

    I think when they start the confiscation process here, they will find Americans to be somewhat less than compliant.

  • Nouvel Anglaterre

    Larry Pratt is full of nonsense. After the riots in Detroit in 1967 people all over that city started packing guns. Detroit, once one of the richest and most architecturally beautiful cities in the U.S.A., is now a run down dump where students in its public schools are more likely to end up in prison than graduate. Most of the firearms that the people purchased for protection end up being used in homicides and other crimes. In 1973 Detroit was the murder capital of the U.S.A. It also has not helped that all of the mayors of Detroit have had left liberal tendencies in everything, except for gun control. Also, the cities in the U.S.A. where firearms are more easily available have some of the highest crime rates in the country. As for those Korean merchants in Los Angeles, possessing firearms did not stop the rioters from targeting their businesses. In fact, some Korean-American woman, I forget her name, acted as an apologist for the rioters by saying that they only stole essentials that families need, i.e. diapers, baby food, etc. Nearby Compton, as well as San Francisco and Oakland have been rated as some of the ten most dangerous cities in the U.S.A.

  • I_P_Frehley

    It's a shame ol' Larry didn't correct Piers on the incorrect and inaccurate use of the term "assault weapon/rifle". We must educate to eradicate.

  • John

    The unfortunate and sad massacre in Conecticut is like a wet dream come true for Obama and the anti-gun establishment. Tyrannical governments have always had the disarming of the general populace high on their agenda. After all, a disarmed populace cannot resist a tyranny. Obama et al had hoped that Operation Gunrunner would elicit the type of reaction that we are now experiencing, but it backfired in his face. Tyranny is knocking on your front door, and already has one foot in the door. Just say NO to lefty-loosies who want to establish a tyranny here in the U.S.

  • justcrosstheborder

    Piers Morgan should go back to England. He is now trying to kill our 2nd Amendment. He is bitter because the Red coats got their butt kicked. I propose he is check for rabbis.

    ......mr. ""CUMO", remember that it was your father who closed the mental hospitals in NY. Some of those sick persons still roaming the streets, some are violent. So, why don't you take a trip down memory lane, walk around the city that your father created and you have perpetuated?....Go down to the Bowry, make new friends. Make it an interesting trip, loose the body guards....just you and the wonder that is New York.....take the bus or the subway. enjoy!!

  • ginjit.dw

    When Cuomo gets rid of his armed bodyguards, maybe then we think about it....

  • nanblan

    I have a proposal. If the government starts confiscating semi-automatic guns or passes a law
    declaring them illegal, then it would only be fair to make it illegal to show the use of such weapons in both Hollywood movies and video games (except, of course, if used by the military.) If ordinary citizens aren't allowed to own or use them, shouldn't ordinary
    citizens in movies and games also be subject to the same ban? I think it would only be fair.
    Perhaps we should start a petition . . . maybe it would make these far-left, Hollywood-loving liberal brats think twice about passing the unconstitutional gun control laws they’re proposing. Anybody up for it?

      Uh...guns in video games aren't real..lol... They are cartoon/digital representations. Boy, you sure are dumb.

  • Publius2013

    Bloomberg is a windbag, and if he wants to confiscate guns that violates the inherent right of the people to keep and bear arms according to the second amendment of the constitution as well as unreasonable search and seizure. Should he attempt that, anyone he tries to steal from can protect their family and selves by resisting and fighting back. If he thinks he can get away with it, he will for sure create a firestorm of opposition of the most violent type and he will be to blame for any ensuing bloodshed. Bloomberg is a windbag!

  • Strangerinastrangeland

    I would not presume to go to Britain and lecture them on their gun policy. Our cousins in GB do not have the tradition of gun ownership that Americans do. Piers Morgan, GO HOME.

  • Texas Tanker

    It amazes me that the same country that blessed the world with Sir Winston Leonard Spenser Churhill and Lady Margaret Thatcher could also produce a pompous fool such as that preening, pip-squeaking arse Piers Morgan. He obviously feels it is morally superior to become a victim than to be responsible for defending one's home, hearth, and family. (Note to Criminal Scum in New York: Piers Morgan probably won't defend himself, whereas Larry Pratt will probably pull a .45 on you.)
    If you find the MILLIONS of honest, hard-working American gun owners so repulsive, Mr. Morgan, then take yourself back across the pond. We did not like British pontifications once before and successfully threw the buggers out. As a result, we have kept that God-given right to defend ourselves and our castles as American CITIZENS that British SUBJECTS have surrendered to the crown. "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

    To my understaning only hand guns were used at Sandy Hook Elementery school if so why are the gun control gestapos blaiming what they call assult rifles .Personal ownership of fire arms so far is the only reason we still have the constitution . The minuet they take our guns they will take all our rights.and we will no longer be a free nation . As for Piers Morgan if he thinks gun control is the thing . They have that in his country as far as I'm concerned he can take his arrogant stupid Limey rear back there !
