- Larry Elder goes toe-to-toe with Piers Morgan (WND, Jan 19, 2013):
Author Larry Elder, who recently released “Dear Father, Dear Son,” has tamed Piers Morgan, the leftist CNN host who has released tirade after tirade in recent interviews on the issue of gun control.
Elder, on Morgan’s show last night to discuss his book, explained the significance of having fathers in homes, noting the high crime rate in Chicago, where 75 percent of black children are born into homes without a father.
“This book that I’ve written, ‘Dear Father, Dear Son,’ is by far the most important book I’ve ever written because it’s about the centrality of fathers,” Elder said.
“The face of gun violence in this country, as horrific as Sandy Hook was, is not Newtown. It is Chicago, where 500 people last year were shot,” he said.
“Chicago is a city with about a third black, a third white and a third Hispanic. However, 75 percent of murders in Chicago were committed by blacks, usually against other blacks, most of them gang-related.
“The question is why do these boys join these gangs, and the answer is they have no fathers in the house.”
