[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

MY GUEST TONIGHT IS A TALKSHOW HOST WHO THINKS HE KNOWS WHAT'S BEST FOR AMERICA.

SORRY, THAT JOB'S TAKEN.

PLEASE WELCOME PIERS MORGAN.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

>> GOOD TO TO SEE YOU.

>> Stephen: HOW ARE YOU?

>> VERY GOOD, THANK YOU.

>> Stephen: THANK YOU FOR COMING ON.

I'M A BIG FAN OF THE SHOW AND I MEAN THIS IN THE MOST RESPECTFUL WAY POSSIBLE GET (bleep) OUT

OF TOWN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OKAY?

NO, NO AFTER THE INTERVIEW.

>> OKAY.

>> Stephen: YOU UNDERSTAND TO AN AMERICAN EAR WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE TO HAVE AN ENGLISH ACCENT

TELLING US HOW TO LIVE OUR LIVES.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> I ACTUALLY DO, YES.

I KNOW HOW ANNOYING IT IS, YES.

>> Stephen: YOU COME FROM A PLACE WITHOUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT.

>> WE DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE GUNS.

LITERALLY WE DON'T HAVE GUNS.

YOU CAN'T GET YOUR HANDS ON THEM.

THE POLICE DON'T HAVE THEM.

PEOPLE IN BRITAIN DON'T HAVE GUNS.

>> Stephen: YOU HATE THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.

>> I LOVE IT.

>> Stephen: HAVE YOU EVER READ A COPY OF IT.

HERE IS IS A COPY OF IT.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

IT'S A VERY NICE COPY.

>> Stephen: SECOND AMENDMENT SAYS "CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW --" THEY CAN MAKE LAWS --

"NO LAW -- DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH.

>> WE GAVE YOU OUR LANGUAGE AS YOU KNOW.

>> Stephen: WE TOOK IT WITH OUR GUNS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> CORRECT.

>> Stephen: AT LEXINGTON CONCORD, IT WAS THE SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD NOT THE DEBATE

OR WHISTLE OR REPORT.

WE HAVE A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE THAN DO YOU.

>> YOU LOVE YOUR GUNS, I KNOW YOU DO.

>> Stephen: WE DO LOVE OUR GUNS.

HOW DEAR YOU TELL AMERICANS HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES.

>> QUIETINGLY POINTING OUT IF MY COUNTRY WHERE WE HAVE NO GUNS WE HAVE 35-40 GUN MURDERS A YEAR.

IN YOUR COUNTRY 11,000.

I THINK WHERE 20 YOUNG AMERICANS ARE BLOWN TO PIECES, AMERICANS SHOULD SAY SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

>> Stephen: WELL, I THINK IT'S A CHEAP SHOT TO BRING UP THE SUBJECT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OKAY.

FEVERS ARE RUNNING VERY HIGH.

NOBODY WANTS TO PROTECT CHILDREN MORE THAN I DO BUT FEVERS ARE RUNNING VERY HIGH RIGHT NOW.

WE SHOULD STOP AND TAKE SOME TIME UNTIL WE CAN APPROACH THIS IN A CALM MANNER.

>> NONSENSE.

>> Stephen:, NO, NO,.

THAT'S THE KIND OF IRRATIONAL PASSION I'M TALKING ABOUT.

WE NEED TO TAKE THE TIME, REFLECT AND EVENTUALLY FORGET AND THEN --

[ LAUGHTER ]

-- THEN I DON'T THINK WE'LL HAVE SUCH A HEATED DEBATE.

>> THERE WERE ONLY SEVEN MASS SHOOTINGS IN AMERICA LAST YEAR.

IT'S A VERY, VERY HARD TO START THE DEBATE WHEN IT'S TOO SOON BECAUSE WE'RE FOLLOWING THE LAST ONE.

>> Stephen: I'M NOT HAVING YOU HERE TO ADVOCATE FOR MASS SHOOTINGS.

I'M HAVE YOU ADVOCATE FOR FREEDOM.

UNTIL ENGLAND YOU DON'T HAVE FREEDOM.

>> WE LIKE --

>> Stephen: NO, NO THE QUEEN CAN COME IN AND TAKE YOURS.

>> A LOT OF AMERICANS THINK OUR ROYAL FAMILY IS GOING TO LAUNCH A ATTEMPTED INVASION OF YOUR COUNTRY.

THE QUEEN AND KATE MIDDLETON ARE ABOUT TO ARRIVE, COME IN AND TAKE YOUR A RIRKS-15'S FROM YOU.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIDICULOUS THEY WOULD HIRE HERBANS TO COME HERE AND HAVE THE EAR QUOAS TO

COME -- EAR IRIQUOIS TO COME AGAINST THEM.

>> Stephen: THAT'S WHY WE HAVE GUNS TO KEEP THE GOVERNMENT FROM TAKING OUR GUNS.

THAT'S WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS INTENDED.

HAVE YOU READ THE CONSTITUTION?

>> I HAVE.

>> Stephen: READ THE CONSTITUTION.

>> I HAVE.

>> Stephen: YOU ARE HAVING PEOPLE -- PEOPLE ARE SAYING YOU ARE JUST PUMPING UP YOUR RATINGS

BY HAVING ON CRAZY PEOPLE.

WHY NOT HAVE REASONABLE PEOPLE ON TO TALK ABOUT -- PEOPLE ON THE PRO-GUN SIDE OF DEBATE WHO

HAPPEN TO BE REASONABLE VOICES WHO THINK THERE ARE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE.

>> NONE OF THEM THINK WE SHOULD TAKE ANY GUNS AWAY.

>> Stephen: I KNOW BECAUSE IT'S NOT REASONABLE BECAUSE IT'S NOT CONSTITUTIONAL.

HAVE YOU READ THE CONSTITUTION?

>> CAN I HAVE ANOTHER COPY?

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Stephen: GOOD TO SEE
