    Alex Jones is going off on Morgan. It is the best thing I have ever seen! Jones is a little "passionate", but actually challenged the tea bagger to a boxing match, and called him out about why he fled Europe. Oh, and Mr. Jones is the one who started the petition to get Morgan deported......classic. Hope Jones settles down a little, or he might blow a pump.

    While I believe Alex just unleashed years of pent up frustration, he could have gotten the message across a lot better by going point-counterpoint with Piers. Answer his question, then ask one of his own. Yelling over Piers made him seem irrational.

    That aside, I agreed with Alex 100%.

    Then the guy mocks him with a bad british accent.....not sure if his rant will help, but good to see the redcoat get a taste of his own medicine.

    I think he got under Piers skin for sure. Sure the "calm" Piers look is meant to show how "irrational" the gun freak is but the facts are the facts and Piers didn't have any ammo of his own from what I could see.

    While I love to hear that that scum is getting his butt handed to him, don't tune in too long, that puke doesn't deserve the ratings bump.

    They are just two clowns appealing to two different audiences. Not worth my time.

    Yeah, but entertaining none the less. NOBODY pushing their opinion on a National platform is going to debate a responsible party in their own forum. I listen to all the crazies, because after you filter out the bs, the truth will be found underneath....

    He's an embarrassment to not only gun owners, but to all Americans as well.

    agreed, Piers did not get it handed to him. Rather than have someone who could debate calmly and present the 2a case in a persuasive manner, he picked a guest that he knew would illustrate his argument that gun owners are loud, irrational loons...

    Exactly. And not just to Americans, this to-be American facepalmed for the small bits I saw of it. Jones has made it fairly impossible to even bring up the tyranny thing as one of the many fine arguments in favor of the 2nd amendment with folks who are moderate on the subject, yet open to discussion and argumentation. Why? Because Jones went off like a lunatic and the association will be made for us. I was impressed with GOA's Pratt. Calm and gentlemanlike. Jones was the typical 2A ranting lunatic that, very frankly, I do not much wish to be associated with.

    Perhaps it's a new thing that shouting and a foaming mouth make one come across as an intelligent and skilled debater, but I missed that trend I guess. The only thing it does is drive people away.

    What was great? Jones looks like a crazy lunatic to many people. Not really the image you want to project when trying to open the minds of "average Joe" to gun ownership.

    Good grief. Couldn't somebody else have been in Alex Jones spot???? :paranoid: It took him less than 30 seconds to go conspiracy theory kooky. Then when Piers asked if he was done he said yes but continued ranting (and looking stupid) for another 30 seconds. He did our cause no favors. Please do not let Uncle Ted an Alex Jones be the voice of reason when it comes to refuting the stupid gun control argument.

    What an absolute embarassment Jones is. I am so incredibly disgusted by his antics. Piers Morgan is an idiot but Jones made him lok sane. Good freakin grief. :rolleyes:

    Maybe we should start standing up for our rights rather than sitting back and saying nothing. I know we should try to win their hearts and minds, it worked so well in Viet Nam.
    Like I said I can only take some much of Alex Jones but I still liked the so called interview. We will chock it up to difference of opinion.

    Not a fan of Piers at all, but Alex Jones acted like a total tool. Piers is no fool, he picked Alex to be on his show since he knew he was go off half-cocked and act like a lunatic.
