CNN’s Piers Morgan goes off on gun advocates, says they make him “sick”

As the national gun debate rages on, so does CNN‘s Piers Morgan.

The host of “Piers Morgan Tonight” ranted against conservatives Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes, with his tirade culminating in Morgan crumpling up his notes, tossing them across his desk and saying the two ladies make him “sick.”

“The pair of you would like to have the right to have a tank and you don’t agree with a single — a single one of President Obama’s proposals for gun control,” Morgan said. “And you know something? It makes me sick when I hear people say that kind of stuff.”

During her conversation with Morgan, Loesch also tried to explain why she herself, and many other women, want to own semi-automatic assault weapons.

“They’re a lot easier to fire than other rifles because of the recoil,” she said.

Loesch also explained that the AR-15 — the particular gun she owns — is just like any other rifle.

“I don’t understand why some individuals can become so scared of this because they think it’s a scary-looking weapon,” she said. “This is not like the military-style assault rifle that — fully automatic or capable of select fire.”

Despite the fact that many semi-automatic pistols can fire just as quickly as a semi-automatic assault rifle, a point Loesch also attempted to make, Morgan revealed his ignorance of assault rifles — he’s never shot one — and his vendetta against this particular type of gun.

Apparently the facts don’t matter at all to Morgan and his personal vendetta. But when his logic is so convoluted, all he can do is crumple his notes and throw them in a hissy fit.

    “crumpling up his notes, tossing them across his desk ”

    Morgan is running out of theatrical gestures to punctuate his hissy fits, and it’s really highlighting his lack of logic.

    He’s a redcoat. Most British subjects, and especially those of their ruling (political) classes actually agree with him. Perhaps not the Prince of Wales or his sons, but all of them were raised properly in the finest of traditions, and none of them have any real political power.

    The redcoats response when English colonists in the America’s decided the overload of non-representative taxes was too much to bear any longer? Send troops to take their guns. Quarter those troops in their homes. Teach the buggers a lesson. Challenge accepted dipstick.

    Now it is time to refresh the tree of liberty again. The ballot box has not worked out, the soap box did no better before the ballot box. The bullet box is what is left, and it is time to go after the redcoats. It’s going to happen, why keep putting it off?

    You know Piers, about 230 odd years ago, the British lectured us about taxes, gun control, and and the rights of man.

    Perhaps you should use Google and find out how well that worked out….

Stewart covers atrocious Dem candidate

In New York’s 11th Congressional district, Democrats need to defeat Rep. Michael G. Grimm, who is facing 20 federal charges and was once caught on camera threatening to throw a reporter off a balcony. So you might think this race would be a walk in the park for them—until you meet their incredibly terrible candidate.
