Former America’s Got Talent judge, Piers Morgan got the shock of his life when he invited radio host, Alex Jones on his show, Piers Morgan Tonight, to discuss issues of gun control. Take the jump to find out what Morgan had to say about his encounter with Jones.
On Monday, Jones appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight to discuss gun control but the conversation quickly turned ugly when Jones lost his temper and went into a rant about guns. At one point, he even mentioned that undercover police officers might murder him. Say what?
According to The Huffington Post, Morgan was taken aback by the heated encounter with Jones and his crazy behavior. He sounded off to CNN on Tuesday, “I can’t think of a better advertisement for gun control than Alex Jones’ interview last night,” Morgan said. “It was startling, it was terrifying in parts, it was completely deluded. It was based on a premise of making Americans so fearful that they all rush out to buy even more guns … the kind of twisted way that he turned everything into this assault on the Second Amendment is exactly what the gun rights lobby people do.”
While many people support both sides of the gun control argument, according to Glenn Beck, Jones proved to be a terrible representative for gun rights with his poor behavior. “Piers Morgan is trying to have gun control,” Beck said. “He is trying to make everybody who has guns and who believes the Second Amendment to be a deterrent to an out of control government look like a madman. So now [Morgan] immediately books the madman and makes him look like a conservative.”
