Piers, tried to explain to the sheriff that all of the crime committed with guns could be fixed if we’d just get rid of those darn guns!
Check it out:
I’m sure that Piers Morgan did not think he would have much of a problem against a small town’s central Florida Sheriff, but he miscalculated. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco was on the CNN program to discuss a recent shooting in a movie theater, where a former police officer shot and killed a man after an argument over texting during a movie. As is his wont, Piers turned almost immediately to the issue of gun control with the Sheriff, and that’s when things got interesting.
“People commit violent crimes. Whether it be a knife or a gun – the issue is that somebody decided to take somebody’s life. And you know what? The gun didn’t kill him, it was the triggers of the person that was arrested, that pulled that gun and killed that person. From a law enforcement perspective we’re dealing with someone who committed a homicide, the bigger issues we deal with are mental health issues and substance abuse. If we could deal with the mental health issues and substance abuse we’d be much safer as a country.”
