There’s no way to quantify how much of a factor the discussion of gun control on “Piers Morgan Live” has contributed to its ratings (which were never all that great to begin with), but the show’s numbers have fallen more sharply since it became a frequent subject on the show.Nancy rants, but it's funny. Sit back down, Brit. We're still pissed about things you did 240 years ago. It's a bit early for one of your kind to be jumping up.
Monday’s installment included discussion of the [Michael Dunn loud-music] murder trial and [George] Zimmerman’s assertion in a CNN interview with Chris Cuomo earlier that day that he was a victim.
HLN host Nancy Grace was among the guests, and she didn’t want to hear more gun-control talk from Morgan. “Are you back on gun control again?... If it weren’t for the British, we wouldn’t even have to have protections to carry guns. It was the British way back when they founded America. They were running through all of our homes trying to take our stuff. So we’re protected under the Constitution. So it’s not really right for a Brit to jump up and start talking to us about gun control.”
