18 Facts That Prove That Piers Morgan Is Flat Out Lying About Gun Control

by Michael Snyder

Piers Morgan is getting on television every night and flat out lying to the American people about gun control.  Nearly every statistic that he quotes is inaccurate and he fails to acknowledge a whole host of statistics that would instantly invalidate the arguments that he is trying to make.  Yes, the UK has a lower gun murder rate than the United States does, but what Piers Morgan fails to tell you is that the overall rate of violent crime in the UK is about 4 times higher than it is in the United States.  A woman in the UK is not allowed pull out a gun to protect herself against a gang of potential rapists.  So perhaps that explains why the UK has about 125 percent more rape victims per 100,000 people than the United States does.  While UK newspapers are declaring that the UK has become the "violent crime capital of Europe", crime rates in the United States have actually fallen dramatically over the past 20 years.  This was also a time period during which gun laws became much less restrictive in the United States.  Today, murder rates in the U.S. are generally far higher in cities that have very strict gun control laws (such as Chicago) than they are for the general population.  The cold, hard numbers make it clear that when there are more guns there is less crime, but hardcore leftists such as Piers Morgan are absolutely obsessed with gun control and Morgan continues to relentlessly attack the 2nd Amendment night after night.  We need to start pointing out that he is not telling the truth.

The following are 18 facts that prove that Piers Morgan is flat out lying about gun control...

#1 The UK has approximately 125 percent more rape victims per 100,000 people each year than the United States does.

#2 The UK has approximately 133 percent more assault victims per 100,000 people each year than the United States does.

#3 Piers Morgan continues to insist that there are more than 11,000 gun murders in the United States every year.  But that is flat out wrong.  According to the FBI, there were 8,583 gun murders in the United States during 2011.  And as Ben Swann recently pointed out, 400 of those were justifiable homicides by law enforcement and 260 of those were justifiable homicides by private citizens.

#4 The United States is #1 in the world in gun ownership, and yet it is only 28th in the world in gun murders per 100,000 people.

#5 The violent crime rate in the United States actually fell from 757.7 per 100,000 in 1992 to 386.3 per 100,000 in 2011.  During that same time period, the murder rate fell from 9.3 per 100,000 to 4.7 per 100,000.  This was during an era when gun laws in the United States generally became much less restrictive.

#6 The city of Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the United States.  So has this reduced crime?  Of course not.  As I wrote about the other day, the murder rate in Chicago was about 17 percent higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, and Chicago is now considered to be "the deadliest global city".  If you can believe it, there were about as many murders in Chicago during 2012 as there was in the entire nation of Japan.

#7 After the city of Kennesaw, Georgia passed a law requiring every home to have a gun, the crime rate dropped by more than 50 percent over the course of the next 23 years.

#8 Approximately 200,000 women in the United States use guns to protect themselves against sexual crime every single year.

#9 Overall, guns in the United States are used 80 times more often to prevent crime than they are to take lives.

#10 Only about 3.5 percent of the gun murders in the United States are caused by rifles.

#11 According to Gallup, an all-time record 74 percent of all Americans are against a total handgun ban in the United States.

#12 Down in Australia, gun murders increased by about 19 percent and armed robberies increased by about 69 percent after a gun ban was instituted.

#13 When Piers Morgan claims that there are only 35 gun murders in the UK per year, he isn't exactly being accurate.  According to official statistics, there were 59 gun murders in the UK in 2011.  It is also important to keep in mind that gun crime was already super low even before the gun ban in the UK was instituted, and that a 2009 article in The Telegraph declared that gun crime had doubled over the past decade even though it is widely acknowledged that crime statistics in the UK are massively underreported.

#14 The UK has the fourth highest burglary rate in the EU.

#15 The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.

#16 A 2009 article in The Telegraph had this stunning headline: "UK is violent crime capital of Europe".

#17 Despite the very strict ban on guns in the UK, the truth is that the UK is a far more violent society than the United States is.  In one recent year, there were 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people in the UK.  In the United States, there were only 466 violent crimes per 100,000 people during that same year.  Do we really want to be more like the UK?

#18 According to Gun Owners of America, the governments of the world slaughtered more than 170 million of their own people during the 20th century.  The vast majority of those people had been disarmed by their own governments prior to being slaughtered.

But you won't hear many of these statistics on the mainstream news, will you?

In fact, right now there seems to be some sort of a nationwide backlash against gun advocates.  A few high profile gun advocates have even ended up dead in recent days.

For example, self-described "gun nut" Keith Ratliff, the owner of the ninth most popular channel on YouTube, was found dead at his business on January 3rd...

Keith Ratliff, 32, was a channel producer for FPSRussia firearms channel, an account with more than 3 million subscribers that features videos of a man testing a variety of guns.

Ratliff was found shot in the head at his business on Jan. 3, and while police don't have a motive, they have classified his death as a homicide, FoxNews.com reported Wednesday.

Not only that, one of the most prominent rifle manufacturers in America was killed in a "mysterious car crash" on January 4th.  The following is from a recent article by Mike Adams...

John Noveske is one of the most celebrated battle rifle manufacturers in America. His rifles, found at www.NoveskeRifleworks.com are widely recognized as some of the finest pieces of American-made hardware ever created. (I own one of his rifles, and it's a masterpiece of a machine that just keeps on running.) Sadly, John Noveske was killed in a mysterious car crash just a few days ago, on January 4, 2013.

According to the Outdoor Wire, his car "traveled across the oncoming lane onto the dirt highway shoulder until it struck two large boulders. The vehicle rolled and Mr. Noveske was ejected."

But barely a week before this incident, John Noveske posted a lengthy, detailed post on Facebook that listed all the school shootings tied to psychiatric drugs. At the end of the post, he asked, "What drugs was Adam Peter Lanza on?"

That was the last post he ever made.

So are these two incidents just coincidences, or is some sort of a pattern emerging?

Meanwhile, radical leftists are introducing gun grabbing legislation in legislatures all over the United States.

On the federal level, Barack Obama is developing plans to bypass Congress and use executive orders to implement his gun control agenda.

There seems to be an all-out attempt to bring strict gun control to the United States.  It is going to be very important to get the facts out and show people that reducing the number of guns is not going to make us all safer.

Please share this article with as many people as you can.  Hopefully this list of facts will help to change some minds.

193200 you really work hard to push your agenda here dont you..

instead of presenting news covering all opinions, you predominantly feature those that agree with your particular point of view..

so as far as the opinion/news ratio is concerned, youre probably on par with fox news.

thats what happens i guess when you dont have courage of your convictions, not enough faith in your own opinion to allow the audience the opportunity to hear all views..

good job

10842 This site is said to be owned by the people who control the world, that means Hell's Cartel.

They don't have faith at all. They are Oath Keepers, (so, they've told me this once), that means they stand for the Black and White, (the sun god and the beast). The articles are one of two things, war constructs or, occult message passing in plain view. They are feeling empowered by their recent mirror sun and their mass sacrifice of innocent children. They don't know that they've been tricked; there is nothing written on them in future history (you may not comprehend what this means but they do).

They are cowards who have nothing but a liars promise to guide them. That's a contradiction if I've ever seen one, but the 99 team fools the world with such nonsense. A death sentence is what they have and one needn't read very far into the prewritten script to see, that it reads nothing on them.

6923 The reason that the UK has a higher violent crime rate than the US is because the UK categorizes more crimes as violent than what the US does. Look it up!

83249 Regarding the rape statistics; You have to take into account the prevelancy to actually report rapes. Countries with a sexually liberal culture often have higher rape statistics than countries with a sexually conservative culture, which causes conservatives to claim that sexually liberal attitudes increase rape.
In fact, the opposite is likely true; in sexually conservative countries attitudes like "Women who dress in sexy clothes have themselves to blame" prevail, and attitudes like this decrease the likelihood that raped women will report the rape to the police. They feel like the rape was their own fault, or at least afraid other people will think that.
In sexually liberal countries, however, women are more likely to believe they have a right to control their own sexuality, that nobody has the right to rape them no matter what, and these women are much more lilkely to report rapes to the police, resulting in higher rape statistics.

TL;DR Women in liberal countries are more likely to report rapes to the police than women in conservative countries, resulting in liberal countries having higher rape statistics even though there probably aren't more rapes. This might be why the UK has higher rape statistics than the US.

OT: Gun control is still bad.

17449 Nice litany of facts and statistics there.

Unfortunately, facts and statistics won't change anyone's mind on this issue. Like abortion, people already have their mind made up on one side or the other, and nothing you will ever say to them will change their opinion. In fact, they're probably not even listening. Any anti-gun person who read this either stopped after the first point, or read the whole thing with their mind engaged in coming up with their own counter-arguments instead of understanding yours.

Plus, the real heart of the issue isn't facts or statistics. It isn't even the second amendment. It's property rights. Either you believe in them or you don't. Guns are property. No more, no less.

And if you are pro-gun and anti-drug legalization, you need to re-think your premises. Plants are property too.
