Not that Morgan is known for truthful, rational discourse, but when he states a blatant lie, he needs to be smacked. At least for once, he admitted he was wrong. From Breitbart:
During the segment in which I appeared, Morgan countered my contention that more guns have equaled less crime in Virginia by saying that Virginia had the “highest murder rate in the country” in 2009, according to “FBI statistics.”
This statement was blatantly false, and after Newsbusters, the NRA, Breitbart News, and others corrected him, Morgan apologized on August 15 via tweeter and on his show. He admitted he had “wrongly stated Virginia had the highest murder rate in 2009″ when it didn’t.
This is a teachable moment, because this is what rabid gun control proponents are prone to doâ€”to argue from emotion rather than reason and throw out numbers that have no basis in reality. This is what conservatives and 2nd Amendment supporters of all political stripes are up against when they stand up for gun rights.
