Piers Morgan and Ted Nugent: Two Sides of the Same Coin
One of the most troubling aspects of the gun debate in America is the amount of misinformation and half-truths being offered by people on both sides of this contentious issue.
Two of the greatest offenders in this regard are CNN’s Piers Morgan and Ted Nugent.
With Morgan he bandies about study results pointing to declining crime rates, attributing them solely to the impact of gun control legislation.
With Nugent, who as a guest on the Glenn Beck show talked about neutralizing watermelons as a means of preparing for armed response, the impassioned rhetoric makes one wonder?
Even though Morgan is British, both his and Nugent’s vociferous defense of their positions make one wonder Why Do Americans Hate Each Other! rather than seek understanding and ultimately consensus on these important issues.
