Alex Jones
Every "9/11 was an inside job" conspiracy theorist's favorite radio host, Alex Jones, made an appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN Monday night after he launched a petition that has gained over 30,000 signatures to have Morgan deported back to England when the British news show host ripped into gun rights advocates on Twitter and elsewhere. Jones was invited to the show and proceeded to unleash a tirade rarely seen on a news program. You could call it a sparring match except the only one really sparring was Jones.

From Mao and Stalin to Hitler and Indian gang rape, Jones went every which direction, sometimes within a few seconds. Morgan barely got in a word, with Jones even mock (I think) challenging Morgan to a boxing match. It was mesmerizing, frankly.

It was a rare glimpse for the general public into the world of the radical conspiracy theorist from Austin whose show garners over a million listeners if you believe Jones and not his Wikipedia page, which he said in one of his more lucid moments Monday night was out of date.

Prior to the show, Jones was detained by the TSA at an Austin airport for refusing to take off his shoes. He claimed he was being harassed because of his criticism of the TSA. The TSA said Jones told them no one else in the crowd had to do it, but the people Jones pointed out were children and the elderly, who are not required by law to remove their shoes.

Jones went to video on his website after the show to describe the "armed mafia" that followed him and his producer. He said they were "followed, watched and approached by possibly undercover agents claiming to be fans" after the show was over.

Whatever you may think about Jones or Morgan, it made for damn entertaining TV. The NCAA BCS championship game Monday night was supposed to be one for the ages. Turns out it was the dud and the fireworks were over on CNN. Watch it and enjoy.

This guy is an embarassment to the civilized world... much less Texas.  Typical extremist who thinks the louder he gets, the more poinent his point is

Has anyone seen the movie "Idiocracy"? That's the direction this country is headed and the tea party wingnuts like Jones are drawing increasing crowds of drooling, knuckle dragging morons out of the woodwork to do their bidding. Welcome to the future, folks.

@pstanton1  You think Jones is a Tea Party member? Talk about idiocy. He couldn't be more opposite.

I can remember his ranting and raving over Y2K: "Are you ready?! Are you ready for the New World Order?!" For which he was conveniently selling Y2K "survival kits" on his website, of course. I guess the NWO realized the gig was up and canceled Y2K.

This notion that the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to fight the government is pretty amusing. It's like they think they can go before a judge and get a warrant allowing them to start a revolution or something. All they gotta do is cite the 2nd Amendment.

@Anse  You do know the whole purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to provide protection against government tyranny, right?

Dude, you aren't going to fight the government. The only people the government has to fight for them are in the military, and you guys worship them with blind abandon, and besides, most of them are gun nuts, too. You aren't going to shoot anybody in our military.

Your problem isn't the government. *We* are the government. Your problem is democracy: I vote, I'm pro-gun control, and I do believe the tide will turn, ever so slowly, toward some sanity on this issue.

@No_PC_BS @Anse I'd like you to clean my garage and parking lot when you have free time this week, USA1....the janitorial assistant who served my father for the past ten years just returned to Guatemala. And you come highly recommended from this blog

@Anse  Put away your silly little race cards. It's the left's kneejerk plans to erode our Constitutional rights that's promoting more firearm sales, not The President's skin color.

What increases the demand for guns is a black liberal in the White House.

@Anse Gallup also estimates 47% of American households own a gun. 

The recent kneejerk overreactions by the grandstanders wanting new
gun laws to punish law-abiding citizens for the actions of a few loons
has only dramatically increased the demand. Guns and ammo are literally
flying off the shelves currently. In fact, most Academys in Houston are
almost completely out of the most popular calibers.

Gallup estimates the percentage of American adults who own firearms at about 34%, which is considerably less than 150,000,000 people. Gun ownership has actually been in decline for a few decades. What you are probably failing to account for is that a small number of Americans are buying the bulk of the guns. I have one member of my family that owns 11 handguns, 4 shotguns, 4 hunting rifles, and a .22 caliber rifle, and that's just for one person. I know a great many people who don't own any weapons, and I know some that would qualify as gun owners only because they've got granddad's old shotgun gathering rust in the attic.

@Anse Do your homework on the # of law-abiding gun owners in the U.S.A.

@No_PC_BS @Anse There aren't that many gun owners in America. And I like to feel good. Feeling good is nice. I don't like being an angry crank, but apparently some folks do. It's a free country.

@Anse FYI, there are almost 150,000,000 firearm owners in the U.S.A. Owning a gun does not automatically make one a "gun nut". That is just silly stereotyping.

The kneejerk reactions and the ban it mentality solves nothing. It just makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside temporarily. Millions of law-abiding gun owners should not be punished for the actions of a few maniacs, obviously.
