Musket Morgan confuses car ownership with gun rights, retweets claim that people ‘take freedom too far’

Uh oh, looks like the jerk store is calling again. Piers Morgan took yet another a breather from Twitter (under 12 hours this time!) to scribble oh-so-genius comebacks and gun control arguments in his diary. And yes, once again, “right wing masses” mobilized to destroy his arguments within seconds.

Musket Morgan has no use for your silly “little book.” And he still doesn’t get how these Constitutional amendment thingies work.

But hey, Musket’s just nobly trying to save American lives!

Yes, every American serious about preventing violent deaths gives a national platform to conspiracy kooks like Alex Jones. Anyway, back to his car analogy.

So, if cars had existed when the Constitution was drafted, it would have explicitly protected our God-given right to tool around in a Honda? Amazing.

What, no response to that one, Piers?

And the straw men just keep on comin’.


Ah, yes. The famously ambiguous “shall not be infringed.”

Wait, you want Piers to read something else? He hasn’t even cracked open that “little book” yet.

And that last retweet is Piers Morgan’s gun-grabbing argument in a nutshell.

What’s with you American freedom-fetishists? Your rights begin where Piers says they begin.

Really? And how are some of the strictest gun laws in the nation helping save children’s lives in Chicago?

Bingo! He even inspired a slew of new NRA memberships.

Anyone else getting bored by Musket’s gun-grabbing shtick and desperation for ratings?

Sadly, it’ll be a long time before Piers Morgan is “over Piers Morgan in the news.”

  • TomJB

    I’m tempted to buy piers a one year NRA membership

    • mickeyco

      I’m sure you can easily find another 34 people willing to chip in $1 each. Can you just imagine his face when he finds himself on the membership list?

    • dmacleo

      thought I read that was already done a few weeks back. I may be wrong, but it is a good thing to do to him :)

    • peteee363

      can’t we convince wayne to make him an honorary member, he does alot in convincing new members to join!

  • louisiana_mom

    If Piers doesn’t like us gun toting, freedom loving, little book clinging (Bible and Constitution), then he has another freedom in America… he is free to leave!

    • TugboatPhil

      He doesn’t seem to understand that most Britons that came to America came FOR THE FREEDOMS that we exercise.

      • dwsmokin

        Thank you! If we’d wanted the British version of “freedom” we would have stayed there. Nothing against the Brits, or the French, or anyone else. We don’t attempt to tell them how to run their countries, and would expect reciprocal respect.

  • Justin Case

    ….why not to vote? What was Piers stance on getting Voter ID?

  • carla5731

    “If Americans are happy to accept all the laws/insurance/regulations to own a car, why not a gun?”

    This could only come from the mind of an individual who gratefully acquiesces to government control and thinks real freedom is scary. I’m so glad that someone quickly responded with “who said we were ‘happy’ about those regs?” We’re already overburdened with laws and a lot of us would prefer the government scaling back their interference in our lives rather than increasing it.

  • grais

    He likes Americans so much, he wants them to be like Britons.
    Sorry Piers. Been there; done that…remember?

  • RichardBlaine

    “Therefore, we must control men in order to force them to be free.” – Atlas Shrugged

  • Dan Thorpe

    Here is what I sent to Piers

    @piersmorgan all guns are assault weapons of some kind, Never saw a gun that shoots rainbows. Unless you address handgun deaths its hollow

    I hate this idiotic thinking that that only some guns are assault weapons. When more people are killed by handguns on a yearly basis then “assault weapons” then instituting a ban them is like putting a band-aid on a gaping wound.

    • Dan Thorpe

      As Benjamin Franklin said

      “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

    • R0nin

      They know they can’t call for banning all guns outright. So they keep whittling away at our rights, hoping we won’t object until they’re gone. Incrementalism, that’s the Leftist way.

      Actually, they prefer disarming the population and then taking over all at once, killing any who stand in their way. But they know that won’t work [yet] because of all those pesky guns we have, and the fact that we “love our freedom too much”.

      So, Incrementalism it is.

  • NeoKong

    They didn’t have cable tv either when the Constitution was written. Maybe we should license and train tv pundits and fine them when they lie.

    • syvyn11

      But MSNBC and CNN would go out of business in a week.

    • Dave Silva

      and look where that is. tv and radio stations need government approval, even though a 3 year old could tell the founders meant all means of communication and news. Hey, there is a trend there, our government completely ignoring the Constitution.

    • peteee363

      we could pay off the national debt three times over if we could fine politicians when they lie!

  • dmacleo

    if we amend the right one old morgan could hack our phones with no repercussions. wouldn’t that be all ducky?
    go home piers.
    across the pond home.

  • detroit19

    Read the ‘little book’, Piers; you’ll find many answers within it’s pages or just go back to England if that’s too time consuming/thought consuming.

  • Harrison Woodard

    Does Piers even know what an “assault weapon” is? Does anyone on the left? Because if we start banning things because they look scary, man the left is in BIG trouble.

  • RightThinking1

    Piers says: “Because cars didn’t exist. And nor did assault weapon.”
    What an absurd attempt to parallel the two. Here’s news Piers, fountain pens did not exist either. Thus, the logical extension of your embarrassingly sad argument, is that freedom of the press does not extend to the fountain pen…., or the ballpoint pen…, or to the telegraph…, or to the typewriter…, or to the telephone…,or to radio…, or (in your case) TV, …, or the internet.
    Perhaps as a matter of personal character and principle, you can bolster your argument by emblematically abandoning usage of all of the above. Bear in mind that hand-set printing presses are still yours for usage.

    • dwsmokin

      Exactly! An assault weapon back then was a musket-and everyone had one. The farmers, shopkeepers, salesmen, and hunters had the same weapons the military had. Hmm, could that have been the “intent” of the framers? Nah, course not.

  • JackBee

    People with guns are usually stopped by people with guns. Crazy idea I know.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    #MentalLibness has no bounds. I hate being lectured by liberals on how they ‘feel’ things should be, let alone a brit, without an ounce of knowledge of our constitution. It’s bad/sad enough that our own citizens are mostly clueless of our history…thank you public schools. #SaveYourChildren and educate via home school or private school.

  • Lady 12

    Hey Morgan, “obviously ambiguity” should be “obvious ambiguity.” Not even middle school kids mix up adjectives and adverbs. Oh, and by the way, you are not smarter than the American constitution, so stop pretending you are. Self-absorbed dimwit.

  • Steve_J

    A prime example of people taking freedom too far is Musket still being on the air.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    gawd, morgan, let it go. your obsession is unsettling…

  • aegean1

    Piers, put down the shovel.

  • Clorinda Madsen

    Somebody on another forum, PJ Tatler maybe, made the point that sure we’d accept the same regulations. Every 15 year old can go to a CCP class and get certified. They get gun training in school or at private classes. They can own a gun at 16. Dad will loan them his gun, or take them down to the store and buy them their first, etc.

  • stuckinIL4now

    What reality is Piers living in when he argues that we should amend the Constitution to reflect modern times? In that case it should be mandatory that every citizen be armed with protection against an out-of-control government. I mean, has Piers heard the commiesocmarxist dictatorlike power-grabbing rhetoric from little tyrant Prezuhdunce Obamuh? Has he heard the threats from our corrupt kleptocratic elected officials? Or is he so indoctrinated to his precious socialism that he doesn’t even know what personal freedom is?

    Oh, and Morgan is sooooo arrogant that he thinks he has the God power to stop the next one or the one after that or any one at all!

  • $36544368

    Seems to me that Piers should think about this – I’m betting more cars accidentally kill people than guns do.

    • R0nin

      They do— many times more every year.

    • Michelle

      Your bet would be correct. More children die each year from car crashes than they do by guns. But since the accidents don’t all happen on one day, giving a high number for the public to scream about, they accept it. Funny how that works, isn’t it?

  • Bob Cordon

    I can’t wait till Musket-mouth goes home. I’ll saddle up like Paul Revere, and ride through town, yelling “The British are leaving, the British are leaving!”

    • YoMamaObama

      Lol,good one.

  • peteee363

    the left loves to drag manditory auto insurance into conversations. except the manditory insurance is on insuring the guy you may hit, and not you.

  • Dash Riprock

    Arguing with Leftists is like playing chess with a pigeon. He knocks over all the pieces, craps on the board and then struts around like he won.

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to Mr. Morgan:

    Stop beating yourself in the head with a hammer. It feels so good when you stop.

    Also find some fresher material to proffer to we Americans. Your borrowed, old and embarrassing Insurance argument is at least twenty years old.

    • R0nin

      But there’s a new generation of young people to use the same old arguments on. And leftists always count on the rest of America to have a short memory. Unfortunately, Americans tend to oblige them.

  • BeeKaaay

    If we take freedom too far, why hasn’t he moved to a totalitarian state like North Korea yet?

    OH WAIT, it is OK for HIM to take freedom too far.

  • Michael Rice

    This guy is a complete imbecile. Once his points are refuted, easily at that, he moves on to some other ridiculous arguement.

    Yes, we have had amendments….read them…outside of limiting the times a person can be elcted to the White House…which stops possible “dictatorships”….which ones took away rights previously granted? Anyone..? .
    They gave us rights.

    • TexSizzle

      The 21st gave back rights taken away by the 18th.

  • Michael Rice

    The fathers could nto have imagined the internet, free speech does not apply. Cell phones? Nope….again, good bye free speech. The same goes for unreasonable searches as it would pertain to thsoe items.
    Television…free speech is gone.
    Wire taps for emails and texts, etc…without warrants are in..

  • TocksNedlog

    Isn’t “punishing the 99%” — which, in this case, means the majority of gun owners that do not commit crimes — considered a bad thing?

  • dwsmokin

    This is the problem with the left, and John Kerry verbalized back when he ran for President when he said only government had the wisdom to invest the taxpayer’s dollar where it would to the most good. That attitude prevails with the leftist mentality-they know better than we do. It’s an elitist, arrogant, self-absorbed attitude by those who consider themselves more “enlightened”, educated, or just plain smarter than the average voter.

  • Tom B

    Sorry piers ,Rights come from GOD not government.The Declaration of Independence set the standard that man has god given rights and the government must protect these rights.The Constitution only says what the government must protect.Never allow a lawyer to argue constitutional rights in a court.

  • Tom B

    Only a fool would argue for a GOD GIVEN RIGHT in a court of nitwits!

  • Bob Honiker


  • Jim Rasmussen

    I find it interesting that if a conservative doesn’t like something – like porn, abortion or gay marriage – liberals tell them “don’t watch it” or “don’t have one” or whatever. See what happens if you tell a liberal, “If you don’t like guns, just don’t buy one”. See if that satisfies them.
