    In case you weren't paying attention, Howard, both of your guests tore into Piers for calling Larry Pratt "an incredibly stupid man". Morgan lost the argument when he resorted to that ad hominem garbage. I don't understand why you bothered to defend him.

    The Journal News has done it again, making public more gun-owners (and in the process, non-gun owners) addresses. They should change their name to "Rapist's Choice News." Whether you want to steal a gun; or rape, rob, or kill someone you know doesn't have a gun to defend themselves, be sure to check the latest copy of "Rapist's Choice News."

    I signed the growing petition on the White House web page showing support to send Piers home. He forgets we Yank's put up with a lot of crap, but we can't stand for non-American's challenging our Constitutional rights, or being called stupid when trying to debate our position on our home soil. If Piers were a man he would admit this is not his fight to fight, and he crossed a line he should never have crossed. This is about disrespecting a fellow American on American soil. Many Americans (94,696 and growing) want Piers to leave America, and we really don't care where he goes.
