CNN’s British Import Piers Morgan Calls Gun Owners ‘Heartless Gun Nut Bastards’

CNN’s late evening TV host and British citizen Piers Morgan is slamming America’s gun owners again calling them “heartless gun nut bastards” on Twitter.

Morgan got angry when he discovered that Second Amendment supporters were trying to create a “guns save lives day” to be held on December 14.

It so happens that December 14 was the day that a crazed murderer killed 26 teachers and children at the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

“Imagine the effect this ‘Guns Save Lives Day’ campaign will have on those poor Sandy Hook families, on that first anniversary,” Morgan Tweeted in outrage.

I hate to agree even a little with this insufferable, historically ignorant, Constitution-hating Brit, but he has a bit of a point, here.

As a huge supporter of the Second Amendment I have to admit that trying to put this day on the calendar to support our rights to self-protection on the same day as the Sandy Hook crime was simply a horrible idea.

But to claim that this misguided choice of a date by gun enthusiasts was made from “heartlessness” is a step too far.

Still it isn’t likely that such a day can be set before that first anniversary arrives. It is only a few months away and it won’t get done before then.

Regardless, Morgan’s constant uninformed attacks on our way of life are not wanted. And I don’t say that just as a “gun nut” but can base my opinion on Morgan’s tiny, tiny ratings.

He’s doing so badly that some car accidents have more viewers! In fact, it is looking like he’s about to be replaced by a new CNN hire soon. So, it may not be long before he’s off the air–and rightfully so.

    On the bright side he was OK on “America’s Got Talent.” In any event, look, this is real simple: Morgan is a journalist. Meaning ipso facto he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. He has no other real world experience. He’s British. The quintessential liberal hack (BIRM). But outside of conservative blogs, ironically enough, he’s irrelevant. Nobody watches his show. Nobody for that matter watches the network on which he’s allegedly broadcast. CNN’s total audience is far less than the audience who tuned in last night to “The Walking Dead.” Morgan doesn’t get to vote on legislation. People like Harry Reid, Chris Coons, Claire McCaskill, Joe Donnelly, Mike Bennet, etc., are the ones who get to vote on legislation. Thanks to the so-called “Tea Party.” The irony of course would be lost on the Internet and talk radio demographics.

      Do you come up with original stuff or do you just copy and paste some crap that is computer generated?

        Now don’t go all Glenn Beck crack pipe smoking (BIRM) on Lawrence. He’s only here to engage in meaningful conversation with folks.

          Except of course he never does, engage that is.

          • warnertoddhuston

            That’s because even he loses his point in the giant, single paragraph messes he creates.

            The only chat-bot ever designed to fail the Turing test on purpose.

          • Jwb10001

            My point exactly.

  • GarandFan

    The MSM will never acknowledge that guns can save lives. Often without even being fired. The MSM says ‘it can’t find any such stories’. That’s odd, the NRA’s monthly magazine has a page devoted to such stories, CULLED FROM LOCAL NEWS SOURCES.

    Guess the MSM can’t “find” those.

      You can’t find what you won’t look for – and deliberately ignore if you happen to stumble over it,.

  • jim_m

    He’s right. I don’t give a damn about him.

  • Jwb10001

    Hey Piers, I hear there’s a country on the other side of the Atlantic that has the very gun laws you like so much, maybe a one way ticket is in order?

  • Commander_Chico

    I don’t agree with Piers, but he has some balls, because he really does have a lot of real “gun nuts” riled up.

    • Jwb10001

      Yes I’m sure Piers life is in serious danger…. LOL you are kidding right?

    • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

      Right. We see constantly how violent the ‘real gun nuts’ are when riled up.

      If Morgan was really worried about his safety – he’d be silent. But it’s perfectly safe to constantly poke at people he knows won’t hurt him.

      If he had real balls, he’d take on Islamic extremism. But hey, no need to lose his head over it, right?

        I saw a study last week that showed that police in the state of KY AZ were 3 times more likely to commit murder than CCW holders.

      • http://wizbangblog.com/author/rodney-graves/ Rodney G. Graves

        It’s true, he has no balls.

        • Conservachef

          I actually read your comment with Bill Murray’s voice. Ha!

  • LiberalNightmare

    I remember him, didnt he used to have a tv show?
