I SWEAR I am not making this transcript up:
LARRY PRATT, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA: I think we need to ban gun control laws that keep people from being able to protect themselves. The problem is not going to go away if we ban this or that gun. We’ve tried that. That doesn’t work. Doesn’t even work in England. You have mass murders there all over Europe. There have been mass murderers.
Piers MORGAN: You’re talking complete and utter — you are talking complete and utter nonsense.
PRATT: It seems to me that you’re morally obtuse. You seem to prefer being a victim to being able to prevail over the criminal element. And I don’t know why you want to be the criminal’s friend.
Piers MORGAN: You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?…What a ridiculous argument. You have absolutely no coherent argument whatsoever. You don’t — you don’t actually give —
PRATT: You have no —
Piers MORGAN: You don’t give a damn, do you, about the gun murder rate in America? You don’t actually care. All you care about —
PRATT: It seems to me that facts don’t bother you, do they, Mr. Morgan?…Facts seem to — they bounce right off of your head…Thank you for your high-level argument, Mr. Morgan. It’s really very good.
Piers MORGAN: You know what, you wouldn’t understand the meaning of the phrase high-level argument. You are a dangerous man espousing dangerous nonsense. And you shame your country.
PRATT: Disarmament is dangerous. Ask Neville Chamberlain, your role model.
Piers MORGAN: Yes. Sure. I know all about role models and you’re not one of them.

(Larry Pratt, by the way, is a friend of mine and of Enrique Encinosa and of Cuba’s freedom…he’s very knowledgeable and sharp on the topic–as sharp is he is on gun-control, in fact.)
