    Hey Piers, when are you coming back to the UK? The police have a few questions for you, seems like no one believes what you told that Judge fella? Are you trying to make good with the powers that be my making yourself the most hated man in America? It took you years to achieve that in the UK. Where on Earth will you go when you retire – Israel? Maybe you think they'll use their influence with Dave and Gideon and get you off the hook in the UK. No chance.

    Piers, I don't know how you can control yourself when speaking to those individuals who lack reason. Ben Shapiro was a pathetic example of a human being. He just doesn't get it. Neither do those with his similar ideology. The phrase, guns don't kill people, people kill people, holds as their sacred omen. If they once would concide that guns make the killing aspect so much simpler, that would be a starting point. If anyone of these murders intent on killing had walked into a theater, school or mall with anything other than a gun, how many would be dead. Logically guns kill people by enhancing the process. Fight that NRA.

    Keep up your quest for a reasonable approach to reduce weapon violence that is out of control. I enjoyed your program showing both sides in this critical issue. No one is asking folks to give up their right to bear arms. The problem lies in when the trigger is pulled and by whom. The Supreme Court will have to rule eventualy. Wonder why the ACLU hasn't weighed in on this issue. Continue to make this front burner issue. Lets not forget the victims. What happened to their rights?
