Ben Ferguson returned to be on kids and guns Two days after proudly launching his brand new segment Grill, in which he aims to up the heat and debate stories that matter on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan welcomed the return of the very man who helped debut the segment, Ben Ferguson.
Once again, guns in America was the topic of debate with Morgan raising oakley gl?ser the story of the Kentucky five year old boy who shot and killed his two year old sister with a rifle. had been given [the gun] as a present for his birthday, said Morgan. rifle that is marketed specifically for children. a difference between giving your child a present and being a terrible parent, said Ferguson. had a terrible parent in this situation who is incredibly ignorant and stupid to leave, first of all a loaded weapon out, around adults you don do that, much less children. Second of all you had a stupid parent who didn lock up the gun. don know what law you going to pass to allow for parents to be screened to be dumb or not. I mean, that would be pretty hard to enforce. response to Fegurson point, Morgan listed a number of injuries resulting from children handling guns in the past month including four year old [who] shot and killed a deputy wife at a barbecue in Tennessee and two year old [who] found a glock pistol under her pillow and shot her [mother] in the stomach. many more of these things have to happen, this indiscriminately, before people wake up and go enough kids shooting guns and being shot with guns?' asked an exasperated Morgan. Watch the clip and listen to the interview as Ferguson tells Morgan, hundred and seventy adults last month ran over children because they didn look in their rearview mirror. Are we going to pass a law to fix stupid drivers? > Follow Morgan Live on Twitter > Follow Morgan Live on Instagram The gun is manufactured whether or not it is purchased for a five year old or a beginner, of any age! It is a 22 caliber single shot rifle. My father passed his first single shot 22 to me when I was six and he received it from his father when he was six. I live out in the country, not that it should make a difference, and mine long before trigger locks were invented was put away way out of my reach in a locked cupboard and with the ammunition stored somewhere that I never knew! I was only allowed to use mine oakley gold sunglasses under the supervision of either my grandfather or my father at a safe distance from any place that held people or livestock, etc. and I was to shoot at a target or a fence post. At some point in my life, around the time I was about 10 or 11 years old I was asked whether or not I would like to go deer hunting with my father. I was not allowed to carry the firearm because of course it was of no use against a deer and my father did not want me shooting at him by accident without learning how to hunt correctly, etc. Once again you have missed the point entirely! Mr. Morgan said that a five year old could not get a license for a vehicle, but chose to ignore the response that the five year old did not buy the gun himself. I will keep on saying it here that background checks do not work to the greater extent because they do not gather any information as to whether or not you are mentally stable! I presume that Mr. Morgan now doing the show from his beloved England as he promised to self deport it a second try to get any type of gun issue through Senate failed? And before you respond regarding the color pink of one of the guns that Mr. Morgan showed as being marketed to a female, maybe she is the only offspring, and her dad might ask her some day if she is interested in shooting a weapon or hunting? You never know what her answer may be, as my sisters answer was no. Terry I glad that your parents were responsible about teaching you gun safety and ensuring that you were not able to access your gun unsupervised when you were too young to handle that responsibility. Unfortunately that is obviously not the case with many parents. While I can respect the rights of responsible gun owners like you and your parents, I also fear for the unresponsible people walking around armed. so what the solution? I cringe that the mother of the Newtown shooter was the enabler. and I realize that background checks don help when the parent buys guns for the insane child. But they would have helped in the Aurora shooting. Anything incremental is good. May 3, 2013 at 5:08 am Piers I see that some real stupid people have responded to you. A five year old cannot buy a gun, but his parents can. Maybe his parents should be charged with murder. They are the ones that provided the gun to a five year old. WHY would any person purchase a gun for a five year old and give him access to it, knowing they cannot watch a kid all the time for every minute. This does not have anything to do with the overall gun debate. Why don you go ahead and buy some drugs for the kid while you are at it. If you teach a kid about guns at the age of 5, you have a serious problem. I think everyone knows this, but no one wants to speak up. I request that you remove people like Ben from your show. May 2, 2013 at 1:22 pm My father sold guns for a living as a wholesaler. I was oakley sungkasses brought up to that guns and knives are not toys. But yet to this day toy manufacturers make and sell them. Those children who did this and found those weapons I am sure in their minds thought when they found the gun that they were a toy. Along with the fact those parents should have kept their guns hidden and secure from the child. My father had several shotguns in our home. We never knew how many, there were hidden and secure and when we went to shoot, my father produced them in the suv when we arrived at secure and legal shooting facility. It is all about the RIGHT way of owning a gun May 2, 2013 at 12:55 am Why didn Piers come back on Ben bull about deaths from auto back overs? While it tragic, it does not compare with the number of children who are dying every week from gunshots. families each week bury a loved one often a child who was backed over by a vehicle and killed. That means the total deaths of children AND adults from that type of accident are just half of the number of children alone dying from gunshot wounds each week in America. The total number of deaths annually (228) from back over deaths pales in comparison to the 340 children lost to gun violence every month. May 2, 2013 at 1:24 am In this case it is purely the stupidity and ignorance of the parents. The 5 years old did not buy the gun, the gun had a single shot and child safety lock. Morgan, get your facts straight before you ties every thing on gun law. You should find another line of work. I see every night you struggle to deal with America politics, foreign policy, culture, and law. When the get out of your prepared comfortable Q card zone, you often makes some stupid comments. May 2, 2013 at 7:55 am Piers Morgan. What are you doing in this country!!!? The government must be paying you to brain wash people. The british are known for colonizing. Bullies. today, they oakley shirts clearance can only colonize themselves but you found another way. going to the USA to tell them how to behave. Unfortunately, every time a Brit goes to live abroad, they all try to change the laws around them. A desire for Power is in the Brit blood stream. You are so rude it is unbelievable that you are still allowed to remain on the US soil, so it can only be my first guess. I lived in the UK and I was happy not to see your face on the little screen anymore. and I now live in the USA and you are here again. with your big gob and your fantastic revolutionary ideas of wanting to change the world. You should only be allowed to do what you do after living in the USA for 20 years and understand its culture. We are sick to listen to you on an everyday basis you are like a moaning granny.
Just go back in your own country and preach your stuff over there. legal or not legal, if someone wants a gun desperately, they will find one, so do not waste your saliva. it is American stuff, don turn this lovely country into another Brit country; nothing to envy them.
