Alex Jones Switches Sides, Backs Anti-Gun Lobby

The whole mess all stems from Jones' recent appearance on the Piers Morgan show on CNN.

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - What anti-gun lobbyists have paid Alex Jones to soil whatever remains of the soul of the pro-gun movement? How did they get him to do it on a national television program? These questions connect to the only possibility... that Jones sold out and it secretly working for the other side, trying to harm the American's right to possess firearms.

The whole mess all stems from Jones' recent appearance on the Piers Morgan show on CNN. The accompanying video clip from YouTube shows the highlights, or low lights as the case may be, of the rant that could be a real career sinker for Jones.

He had an opportunity to wage a realistic discussion, but since it is tied to a petition Jones is circulating to have Piers Morgan deported back to England, he apparently felt like he had to take a lunatic's approach rather than that of a professional journalist, talk show host, etc.

No respectable U.S. gun owner is going to back this man who epitomes the ugly American in the worst and darkest possible form? Jones is a sad excuse for an advocate and I am sorry that he has been able to draw so many followers.

Alex Jones is an extreme nationalist who can't see past a few selectively interpreted words written by our slave-owning founding fathers back in 1776.

This interview is what Jones will forever be remembered for. After all, most Americans don't even know who the guy is. He was a staunch Ron Paul proponent, which accounts for a small but vocal and somewhat organized slice of the American pie.

Jones deflected simple questions and accused Morgan of using "factoids" as tricks of deception, while likening Morgan's simple questions to Perry Mason tactics.

My father was a respectable, legal American gun collector, I was around guns all of my life, and my culture tells me that this is OK. But rational and reasonable discussions are not taking place if Jones is in the room and he throws his weight about in a threatening way.

I don't think it is any kind of stretch to say that Alex Jones did nothing to help the pro-gun community, he only achieved the opposite.

Yelling and screaming to make his point, Jones even earned the wrath of Glenn Beck. Real gun activists will have far more success if they turn their backs on this clown.

Alex Jones has all the charm of Ted Nugent, and that means he has none at all. Somebody used a vacuum cleaner to suck his dry a long time ago. Maybe Jones and Ted Nugent should get married.

The whole argument on Gun Control is a joke and it will fizzle out. We don't need gun control, we don't want gun control, stop with the talking about gun control, it is only to put you under control. Let it go...

Alex has millions of supporters and I agree with Him regardless of his delivery. As you can see just about everyone here and all around online do not agree with you. Piers Morgan and the rest of the prestitutes are a laughing joke and you know it and so does everyone else. The truth is coming out and the people behind the curtains are losing and they know it. We are not going to give up our guns. No one is going to take guns away from Americans! They know better and that is why they are trying to do it slowly. That might work in California and New York but not in most of the states! Piers Morgan should leave the country. Yes we have first ammendment, second ammendment and so on but it is wrong for a foreigner to come over here and use our rights to talk bad about them. What a hypocrite and if you can't see that then you are one too.

Tim King: Has it occurred to you that Morgan is being a better caretaker of life than you Daniel?  I admit I don't really have a dog in this fight, but I know I won't back that guy and you are wrong, everyone does not disagree with me, nor agree with Jones.

My sentiments exactly, Tim King. One of my friends who is not political at all and didn't even know who Alex Jones was wrote, " Wow! I have never seen more deplorable and despicable behavior. We need gun control for maniacs like this who obviously have no impulse control!" Obviously, the mainstream media loved that he flipped out like a maniac. There is an agenda to get our guns and he played right into their hands. We have enough trouble educating mainstream John Q. Public about the realities of gun control without Jones muddying the water.


Author is a moron. January 11, 2013 11:10 am (Pacific time)

You did nothing to but be a bitch in this whole article lol. Jones destroyed that fag like you. Taking away gun period is against the constitution MORON! use you brain, but then again america has the lowest iq's your is at best a 1 which is completely stupid.

Editor: I've been wondering when the pro-Jones crew would show. This wanker doesn't even capitalize the name of his own country, no worries.

Tim, Piers has a very small audience, and unless you have been unaware of Pier's incredible onslaught against our Bill of Rights, he has developed considerable hostility towards him by informed gunowners, about 100 million of us. I'm sure Jones would have liked to have done that show differently, but Jones was venting, and that's what people do to those who engage in the insulting behavior that Piers engaged in 24/7. Piers, by the way, is surrounded by armed security at CNN and his NYC digs, so what's he going to say about disarming Americans citizens, while this interloper has this kind of security? Both Jones and Nugent and all us gunowners who are keeping our eyes on the gungrabbers, are all brothers/sisters in the fight against these data cherry-picking liars. Please note than in Oregon, over 162,000 have CHL's and ssentially a nil crime rate from this population. Blunt instruments, like bats, have killed more people annually than all rifles (over 100 million rifles out there) which includes the semi-auto's that ignorant people are so needlessly worried about. In fact even "Hands and Feet" kill more people than rifles. Here is the FBI link, and it is a primary source: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.- 2010/tables/10shrtbl11.xls-
