    What is wrong with these people, more guns?? They must be insanely crazy to think that people in America are in the war zone. The citizen of the America do not need guns to protect themselves. I live in Malaysia and we have 3 different races and cultures and we definitely do not have guns in our home and we can live peacefully. To the Government of America please try to look at your neighbour countries and learn about how we can live with no guns environment!


    His show, and Piers are getting uglier everyday. It's like he's waiting for one of his guests to take a swat at him. He is very cruel to his guests. Piers needs to see a psychiatrist, before he does something that can't be undone. He's a very angry man. That's how it starts. It reminds me of a Jerry Springer Show, but at least Jerry's show is comedy, too.

    @ Lauren Gardner

    Morgan is an unadulterated moron... a beneficiary of "accentophilia"... is the only way I can explain his present status... low brained... egotistical... not fit to touch the hem of Larry King's trousers


    Piers is wrong on one fact. In the 12 years following the banning of handguns in the UK in 1998 (and remember we have NEVER been allowed to use them for self defence) gun crime did not go down. Home Office figures show it rose by 400%. The law only affects legal activities, banning sutff reduces legal use, but illegal acts remain unaffected by changes in law

    @ Alec

    I point you to http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/australia.

    Some of the harshest gun laws in the world were introduced in 1996. In particular, assault weapons. Gun homicide rate, 1996: 0.57%
    Gun homicide rate, 2009: 0.1%
    570% improvement.

    UK, on the same site.
    Gun homicide rate, 1998: 0.6%
    Gun homicide rate, 2009: 0.3%
    100% improvement (from banning handguns alone)

    Given they at least bother to cite a verifiable reference, I will take their word over yours.


    If Piers understood history as well as he spouts hyperbole, I'm sure he'd have a different point of view. Then again, what TV talking head can't you say that about?


    ..........he must be american.
