Gutfeld: 'Only a Dumb Person Responds to Facts Without Facts'
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld blasted Piers Morgan's reaction to the remarks Vince Vaughn made about having guns in schools.
In an interview with the UK edition of GQ Magazine, the actor spoke out about the Second Amendment and how he wants all U.S. schools to have firearms to protect students.
"These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenseless human beings. They do not want confrontation," Vaughn said. "In all of our schools, it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."
"You think the politicians that run my country and your country don't have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. And we should be allowed the same rights," Vaughn said.

Gutfeld said that the media's reaction is as "unsurprising as it is fact-free."
"Piers Morgan, remember him, fulfills the first syllable of Twitter, using that platform to call Vince dumb," Gutfeld stated. "The irony is lost on Piers. Only a dumb person would respond to facts without facts. Piers just showed up to a gun fight, with a waterpik."
Gutfeld noted that what has been lost in this conversation is the fact that GQ asked for Vaughn's opinion on the issue.
"And he gave it, but unlike most stars, he did so with actual facts," Gutfeld said. "No wonder the media freaked out. They didn't know what to make of a star who actually reads. Which is why they reacted with flawed surveys filled with biased calculations."
Gutfeld said that the real stories are the ones ignored, like the number of gun owners who actually prevent attacks.
