#4 General Thomas Gage, of his royal majesty's Army, tried gun grabbing before. I'm sure you're starting to feel the heat his people did.
If you're feeling so 'multi-cultural' let me add a line from the Mexican constitution (Art.33), to wit "Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country."

#5 US Gun Control facts
1 It ain't gonna happen, buddy
2 Over my dead body
3 Correction, over your dead body
5 That's it
You know the biggest problem the US has, is that your split 50/50 while China is slowly but surely taking over while you piss on each other at home
Eohippus Ebbealet9026 is right, I think, about the gun bit. Also about the US being split 50/50 and pissing on each other, though I would have added roughly before that, for unnecessary accuracy. But while China would like to take over the world, I suspect it doesn't have what it takes; on the contrary, I would have finished with the world is falling apart, as can be seen in the inevitable progress of the Arab Spring countries, on the one hand, and the economies of the West, on the other.

#6 Votes are now over 68 thousand. I voted for this laughing and with the following ditty running through my mind.
You cannot hope to bribe or twist
(thank God!) the British journalist.
But, seeing what the man will do
unbribed, there's no occasion to.

PM should not be deported on a speech issue of course. It is nice though to push back and show his view is not wisdom from on high, universally accepted. Maybe put a scare on him too, as Bedford Forest would say.:-)

#7 Thanks for the reminder of that quote, Dog. I'd forgotten it after so many years.
I've got a better idea than deporting this twit. I presume he's located in the New York branch of CNN (can't imagine this "world citizen" deigning to live in Hotlanta).
Mr. Morgan, we insist you demand - as an immediate condition of your present contract - that there be NO guns ANYWHERE in the building where you work, or where you live. NO armed guards, NO armed bodyguards (including off-duty or on-duty police officers) for anyone who works where you work or lives where you live. (And no armed bodyguards in between, either.) Announce, with all your Leftist friends, that it's a deal-breaker.
After all, if you and your fellow travelers Leftists really believe guns are the problem, you wouldn't want any carried/used anywere around you anyway, right?

#8 CNN announced this would all boost his ratings. Lefty thought. Not that I would tune him in at my house. He and his drivel is not welcome in my house. He comes from a country thar enslaved more colonies taxing them to make a king wealthy. If he wants to fix a country I say, "go home! Yours is a royal mess".

#9 never watched him except in mocking youtube clips where he did or said something outrageously stoopid. He will fade in his already miniscule ratings
