Piers Morgan exposes Dana Loesch’s lack of gun knowledge by making up models, calibers, deleting tweets

Dana Loesch’s calling out of CNN’s “real journalist” Piers Morgan over his error in categorizing the caliber of the Bushmaster rifle used in the Sandy Hook massacre might seem petty, aside from two reasons. First, Morgan believes he’s fully qualified to determine what weapons American citizens should and should not be allowed to own. Second, he himself wastes no opportunity to call out his detractors on their spelling errors, like so:

If you don’t take the time to spell-check your tweets, you’re not worthy of addressing Morgan. Getting basic information about guns wrong? That’s not the point — just ban something, already.

It’s .223, but who cares about facts. Why not pivot to an attack on the character of your opponent? That almost worked on your show the other night.

Why yes, yes she is. And she’s not alone.

It’s AR-15.

That’s good, because when it’s Morgan’s turn to respond to an argument, you have to be prepared to wait a while.

Ah, so rather than correct himself on the facts, Morgan would prefer to set up yet another straw man — if a gun isn’t defined as an “assault weapon,” you must believe it’s harmless. Got it.

Is this, at last, the “national conversation on guns” that everyone’s been calling for?

Accurately identifying firearms, and knowing the laws which already exist to restrict access to them (unless you’re a journalist, that is), is important in any honest debate. Perhaps that’s why this tweet from the official show feed, @PiersTonight, implying that fully automatic weapons were part of the gun control debate was quietly deleted.


How are we supposed to have an honest national conversation if you gun nuts won’t shut up and agree with everything we say?

Morgan did manage an apology to Loesch, sort of.

We weren’t aware that Loesch was a gun lobbyist, but that certainly sounds like an invitation to appear on Morgan’s show. In the meantime, Piers and his musket have been welcomed to the gun range.

    Poor Morgan. Still trying to compensate for his lack of virility. Must have Mommy issues.

  • FreedomFighter

    Now that was entertaining to read…lol. No need for a petition, Piers is going to self deport pretty soon. What a tool

    • Nevin

      Dpav-since piers is fond of ad hominem attacks on those who prove him an idiot, couldn’t we call him an “assault tool” and get him banned from the US that way?

    • John Bradley

      Calling him a tool, implies he’s useful for something!

  • CCarrey

    Does anyone honestly get tired of watching Morgan get his pompous arse kicked in these “discussions?”

    • David

      Nope, I enjoy watching him get his arse kicked . . . and the more the better in my humble gun totin’ opinion . . . LOL

        I especially like watching him get his arse kicked by a knowledgeable, gun-owning, conservative chick.

        • krackatoeowww

          shapiro handed piers his azz a couple nights before to,..and larry pratt did as well,..i think pratt deliberatly stated the 970 figure to show he could manipulate piers like piers did to alex jones several nights earlier,…you know,.. make him blow a gasket on national tv. tee hee.

          • Jewish Right Winger

            Absolutely, Shapiro showed up with facts figures and a rational argument, Piers countered with a british accent, ignorance and a stack of Sudafed.

            Last time an arrogant brit tried telling Americans what we should do, we kicked their ass and got a whole country out of the deal.

      Does anyone actually WATCH Piers Morgan. If I did, I would grind my teeth to nubs inside of an hour. I think it may be time to just ignore him and his show. Usually if there are no viewers it will eventually go away (unless it gets sold to Qatar….).

      • CCarrey

        I don’t either, he was run out of England for false stories, that’s why he’s here. He has no viewers, that’s why he’s so hard on this subject, controversy equals viewers in the world of “pop news.”

        • Zombie Prep Network

          You are correct – Piers is a whore.

      • AMSilver

        I want to know what his ratings are when you take out all the airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms that broadcast CNN on the assumption that it’s neutral politically and therefore people would prefer to watch it over a ‘biased’ news source.

    • Bob Parkman

      I think this is one of the problems. Before this, very few people were paying attention. We need to just dismiss him and ignore him. In the future, if someone asks about Piers Morgan, we should just reply, “Who?”

    • Ronald


  • Avey Owyns

    LOL … I witnessed the end of it.

    Piers tried to exit the conversation by saying he was going to dinner, but replied at least two or three time after that.

  • MovingToNevada

    And I bet Piers has never shot a firearm of ANY type in his entire life.

    • greywulf1064

      Gun oil would ruin his manicure

      • MovingToNevada

        He’d probably freak out over the recoil of a .22

        • TundraThunder

          We could have Dana start him off with a popgun, if he can handle it without fainting. But to him it might be an assault gun.

          • Jer

            Maybe we should ban his assault microphone.

          You mean “.23”.

    • Vennoye

      I’m beginning to wonder if journalists even do any research about what they report anymore. Watched a video of George Stephanopoulos reporting on the Mother protecting her sons in Georgia. He talked about her shooting the intruder with a “36”.

      • MovingToNevada


      • TundraThunder

        Maybe George thought she threw an “assault” bra at the intruder.

        • Vennoye

          Had not thought of that! :-) Thanks for making me laugh!!

    • Steve Fox

      Would be unlike a hipochrit

    • Ronald

      Would you take him more seriously if you found out he has fired many guns before? I wouldn’t. I personally don’t care if he has a gun, has fired a gun, or sleeps with one beneath his pillow. The arguments, and the facts are what matter here. Piers makes a very weak argument which only serves to weaken the entire case for gun control. He is doing his side a disservice by his ineptitude.

      • MovingToNevada

        My point was, you can’t take the guy seriously if he knows nothing about firearms. Which is pretty obvious.

    No bushmaster was used in the killings, only handguns were found and a shotgun was removed from a trunk of a car…

    • TJ

      So when the cops and medical examiner who said that an AR-15 was use are all part of the conspiracy to ban guns.

      • almightybob

        Might be. You can’t trust liberals. They have dreams of dictatorships.

        • TJ

          Trust but verify. The police who now have to bury 26 of their own do not have dreams of dictatorships.

      • ranchdancer

        there is a video from a helicopter showing the long gun being removed from the trunk of the Moms car..all of a sudden the media got hush hush about it…why?

        • TJ

          There is a lot that the media became silent about. Like who really was the mother. Some said she was a prepper gun nut but what does that mean. Most have their soapbox to jump on like Piers so added facts that disprove their point are not important and they do not want to be wrong like Piers when the facts do show up. So they don’t talk about them.

        • Nergal

          The long gun in that video was almost definitely a shotgun. It looks like it may have been a Saiga 12, with a Dragonov-style stock. Whatever it was, it was definitely NOT any model of Armlite Rifle.

      • Richard Carter

        the ar was in the trunk ,, was not .223. but a shot gun. 3 9mm hand guns were used acording to ME. cops say the long gun was in trunk , not used only press say it was used

      • Ken Alan Draper

        Have you seen the press conference where that ME was on camera? that guy came across as a clown. all loopy, like he’d smoked a lot of pot just before going on camera.

        • TJ

          One press conference he said it was his first in his 30+ year career. Not much experience when dealing with this will show up in a front of a press scrum.

        Why not? You care to explain how several Fed agencies, were on site within minutes of the 1st reports? You ever look up, Newton on a map?

        Lot of stuff not adding up. Characters in the bureaucracy claiming something, means nothing to me. I saw a long gun, being pulled out of the trunk.

        • TJ

          Having distrust in anyone with a badge will led down the rabbit whole of conspiracy. That is what happens when Piers Morgan is give a TV show.

          • BigDogJunction

            Like the Newton police, who say they will now prosecute any whistleblower (blogs) media, that reports on anything they haven’t released? So the First Amendment is out the door now to.

            But, we’re just conspiracy nuts, right?

          • BigDogJunction

            You make a lot of assumptions. Who said I have distrust of anyone with a badge? I am pro-military, pro-law enforcement. I understand “Need to know basis” and fully support it.

          Yeah….google the United Way Sandy Hook Relief Fund! Notice the date of the page and the date of the shootings.

    • Michelle

      And yet Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance said on National TV that a Bushmaster AR-15 was the primary weapon and Lanza used the pistol to kill himself, that was a lie? Yikes. That’s not good. I can’t find any info about this lie, where can I read more about it?

      • MojaveDesertDave
      • Vennoye

        I watched coverage of that shooting all day in real time. Over and over we were told that two pistols were used and that a .223 was found in the car. No wonder people are beginning to question the whole thing so much.

        • TJ

          The media also go the name wrong at first. And flashed the brother Facebook page. Someone in a New York studio is not the best to get information from in instant real time speed.

        • Michelle

          You’re going by speculative reports from the media that were being giving while it was going on and no solid facts could possibly be known at the time versus what a Lt. w/ the CT State Police reported when the facts were known? This member of the law enforcement agency that handled the situation said he used an AR-15 on the victims, also had a Glock and a Sig Sauer handgun, and that a shotgun was found in the trunk. I think this man might know what he’s talking about, I’m going with what he said.

    No cure for stupid. Morgan, however, should be allowed to stay. He can serve as an excellent bad example on many levels.

    There was a reason (or two) that the colonists expelled the British from these shores in 1781, and again in 1815. Something about a “train of abuses and usurpations” by the government that by today’s standards were child’s play. Head on back to England, Mr.Morgan, where you can cower under your covers and be prepared to give up your life to the next knife-wielding bloke that breaks down your door.

  • Russell Larson

    Mr Morgan….I have to say… If your arguement is based on Need …. Do you need the size house or apt you live in ,,, the kind of car you drive or driven in .. the kind of suits you wear, and the Quality of dinner you were served… or even the daily Starbucks you drink…. and the number of Body guards you have

  • Guest

    I’m so sick of idiots on both sides bickering about what is essentially useless information. Before all of you say “hey, dlouis, this is really important, this is about our Second Amendment rights!” We’ll to be honest with you, I couldn’t care less about what Musket or Dana think about the issue, because neither of them are policy makers (and one is a British expat)

    Furthermore, I have full faith in our government (crazy, right?) that they will do the proper thing and strengthen the system of background checks without being overbearing on law abiding gun owners. I’m certain of this because any solution would have to be agreed upon by both parties and it is in everyone’s best interest to do something. The liberals are forced by their gun control constituents, and Conservatives will be forced to do something in order to not be tagged as enablers of child murder. As unfair as that label is, it’s coming in 2014 if they excessively obstruct the liberals efforts on this one.

    • Madfoot713

      Why do we need to “strengthen” background checks? Why is it if you don’t want to pass more pointless laws you’re an “obstructionist”?

      • ranchdancer

        I agree but here’s a catch we have Hippa laws, privacy issues and patient confidentiality to consider. Liberals will fight against the intrusion on these. Anyone who is taking a medication that alters mood or behaviour etc., should not be allowed a permit, many on both sides won’t like this, but as we know all of these senseless and horrible mass murders were committed by people with mental illness. I guess those who prefer to hide behind Hippa and confidentially laws really don’t care about saving children.

        • Madfoot713

          “Anyone who is taking a medication that alters mood or behaviour etc., should not be allowed a permit”

    a ” Assault Weapon ” for a M107 with 10 round Mags or a M86 only 5 round mags……with a even trade on Mags to mags and round for round

  • John Hope

    I am not sure Piers understands the definition of an assault rifle. The definition has nothing to do with military looking physical characteristics. It has to do with military CAPABILITIES. Specifically, a switching mechanism that allows you to switch between semi-automatic, and full automatic. I do not believe there was an assault rifle used in this shooting, or in any other mass shootings I am aware of. Anti-Constitution Liberals love to throw the term “Assault Rifle” around, even though they don’t know what the hell they are talking about!!!

      cyclic rate on A1 version (the one I carried) was 700-800/minute. so at 750/min thats about 12 per second.
      but the machine could not do this w/o melting barrel, it was basically theory and people use the cyclic figure as gospel.

      iirc the max sustained was around 20/minute

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        I’ve grown tired of clueing people in on cyclic rate vs actual rpm.

        The cyclic rate is the theoretical maximum rate of fire. It is what is listed in Janes, (along w/ a footnote explaining the difference…).

        I’ve come to the conclusion that the continued confusion is willful disinformation on the MSM’s part.

        This willfulness is the “kick me” sign on Morgan’s back — and on the back of every other MSM commenting.

        The point I’ve started making to people is that if a person needs to lie to produce a somewhat convincing argument, what they want must not really be necessary— nor what they’re really after.

        Why does the increase in this sort of slaughter track with the penetration of Progressive “values” in our culture and the increase of federal gun control? (/rhet. question)

        This sort of thing was unknown most of my life… well, the first 70 yrs, anyway. I’m sorry, everyone, for the world my generation has bequeathed you.

        • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

          I think the continued confusion over cyclic is (possibly) from movies.
          good blanks could keep it up for a bit so people see that and think its real.
          someone needs to show what REALLY happens to one when cyclic is obtained.

          it isn’t pretty.

Days later it was all about the newly found .223 Bushmaster and hi cap mags. Once Eric Holder and Obamas’ administration got involved I am sorry but I do not believe a GD word. And no one even talks about fast and furious anymore. The press would not touch when it went down because it was a “non story” and not news worthy. 100s killed in Mexico and that was a “non story” Once the justice dept, state dept, or obama are involved it hasnothing to do with the truth or anyones saftey. It is about lies, taking away your rights and your guns.

    I think that the worst part of him even being INVOLVED in this debate is that he tries to come off as an expert and, of course, HIS country is so much better since they banned their citizens from such weapons. Except that the violent crime rate in HIS country is almost 4 times what it is in ours with all of our horrible weapons! Piers, lad, STFU!!!

    Since we all seem to keep playing with the poorly informed, attention seeking Morgan can we at least make him some kind of honorary Twitchy “boy toy”?

  • Jon Weiss

    Morgans comments contain so many errors it is hard to keep up.

    For example, the AR-15 is not a “.233” it is a 5.56mm or .223. Second the AR-15 cannot fire 6 rounds a second, it does not have full automatic ability. The M-16 CAN fire 14 rounds per second if it is given an uninterrupted ammo supply and does not malfunction. But that is in the full auto mode.

    The M16A2 and M4 military rifles would have the same rates of fire except they have been made with a three round burst ability rather than a full auto ability, the delay for each new trigger pull slows the rate of fire, just as it does for the AR-15. The AR-15 in order to meet the requirements of Federal Law, has only semi auto ability and cannot fire in full auto or burst mode.

    • v1cious

      I don’t know why you guys keep insisting this isn’t possible. It’s extreme easy to mod an AR-15 into an assault rifle. In fact, it’s legal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXwSdJmdaWg


      • Gekk

        So if we’d banned the rifle that was left in the car something different would have happened?

        I’m confused how that works… did the rifle left in the car get used to kill anyone?

      • http://www.facebook.com/scott.myself.5 Scott Myself

        that would be a bumpfire stock and i can see banning those. but banning the weapon it’s self is just dumb. more importantly look up the ar 15’s history. since being produced for civilian use it has been used in only 14 shoots to my knowledge. most rifle shootings are hunter mishaps. and it is common knowledge the brits fudge there crime reports to make it look like there doing better than they are. ask an actual brit how there weapon ban is doing vs there crime rate. and ask them about the poor sob in jail for life for defending himself and home against 2 armed robbers. who repeatedly broke in beat him and robbed him. on the 3rd time he shot one with a double barrel shotgun killing him in self defence is now in jail for life. the other robber did 3 years is out now and sueing the home owner who is still in jail for his friends death. pierce you can keep that dumbass system over there. we have proof gunbans dont work here already look at dc’s crime rate or chicago’s

They’re just ‘monkey see, monkey do’ trying to reflect the current administration pathetic attempt to lead this country. Deleting tweets just proves what a complete buffoon we’re dealing with.

  • Zombie Prep Network

    Let me suggest this to you. Piers Morgan is not anti-gun at all. He could care less about gun laws, or guns. What he is doing is whoring his way onto a controversial topic in order to gather an audience (even one that hates him). His ratings and relevance were nil until he started to face off over gun control. Maybe we should stop paying attention to him.

    I wonder if Morgan ever heard of the “Mad Minute”?


    ” Many riflemen could average 30+ shots, while the record, set in 1914 by Sergeant Instructor Alfred Snoxall was 38 hits.”
    *Aimed* shots. In a minute. With a bolt-action that had to be cycled between rounds, and held 10 rounds loaded from two 5-round stripper clips.
    26 people killed at Sandy Hook… Bolt action rifle capable of 30-38 AIMED shots in a minute, while stopping to reload at least 3 times. Please explain to me again how a semi-auto AR-15 would have a greater body count than if he’d used a Lee-Enfield from WWI?

    (EDIT: corrected info on stripper clips)

  • Michael Meador

    Dana brings up a very valid point. We have people making decisions and law concerning a subject that they have absolutely no clue about. With many things, it’s amusing, with firearms, it’s damned dangerous and irresponsible. I submit that any law maker that wants to introduce legislation concerning firearms be required to take ALL of the NRA safety courses, pass at least 20 beginner and intermediate level gunsmithing classes, and put at least 40 hours a year for range time actually shooting these firearms. As far as I’m concerned, 99% of the media and Government are total idiots when it comes to knowledge on firearms. But then again, I’m biased, I actually took the the time to learn first hand vs. listening to drooling retards drone about it on the news.

    Morally the same as shooting the children himself.

  • kevinp2

    Piers Morgan is another sneering Brit who comes to this country and demands that we change our laws and society to soothe his paranoid sensibilities about guns and gun owners.

    He invited the articulate and well spoken gun rights advocate Larry Pratt onto his show, berated him and called him unbelievably stupid:


    Larry Pratt was calm, composed, had good arguments and made Piers Morgan look like a fool.

    So Piers Morgan looked around, found a conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, and invited him onto his show so that he could look better. Alex Jones performed as expected, and Piers Morgan got to say that “that man should not have a gun”.

    On a subsequent show, Piers Morgan and his guest Buzz Bissinger then joked about shooting Alex Jones with a semiautomatic weapon:


    Wow, this is really classic journalism that adds substantially to the civil debate in this country. Piers Morgan has First Amendment rights, but honestly, this country is better off without sneering Brits like him. He really should return home and sneer into his warm beer.

    • Dick Beninya

    • Gekk

      So we should follow the UK’s rules and ban most guns; because that’s worked well for them?

      How has that worked since their ban.

      UK murder rate UP, US murder rate without the ban, down.

      UK rape rate UP, US rape rate without the ban, down.

      UK mugging rate UP, US mugging rate without the ban, down.

      UK home invasion rate UP, US home invasion rate without the ban, down.

      But we should follow THAT plan regardless. More murder, rape, mugging, and other violent crimes will be good… right?

      No wait, let me guess. It’ll work THIS TIME even though it has failed every other time it’s been tried?

      If you want MORE people murdered (possibly not quite as many with “THESE” weapons) I’m confused why you think one murder is better than another.

      If you don’t want more murders; why propose a policy that has resulted in more murders when implemented?

    In the tweet he deleted mentioning the Chardon High shooting, that was another shooting (with a handgun) where

    -the shooter had been KNOWN to threaten others,
    -had a violent past beating up people AND being arrested,
    -came from a screwed up family w/ a father with a record including attempted murder,
    -didn’t even attend that school but was in the cafeteria early in the morning,
    -was already in another public school for problem students,
    -stole his grandfathers unsecured firearm,

    and the math teacher who saved the kid in the tweet had a BULLET PROOF VEST right in his classroom, so apparently this was not unpredictable.Never the parents, family or schools always the inanimate object.

    When obama decides to secure our southern border,

    Everyone, especially fools like Piers Morgan, seems to be missing the point of the 2nd Amendment…it’s to guarantee the populace having firearms to defend themselves from a tyranical government. Hunting has nothing to do with it!

  • AWomaninTX

    Why does anyone give him the credit he has? He was a tabloid journalist (who was involved with the whole phone-tapping scandal, I believe) and a “Britain’s Got Talent” host!

    Piers, Piers, Piers…….

    If it wasn’t for you, Americans would never know the joy of using the term “pompous ass.”

    Also, according to reports, the AR-15 was NOT used in Newtown. Only handguns..the AR was in his car.

    Unfortunately, low-information voters tend to watch low-information hosts like Piers Morgan.

    A .233? Seriously?

    And does he really believe civilian AR-15s can be readily modified to fire full auto? I’ve built a couple of ARs, but I have no idea how to do that. Maybe Piers can send me a link.

    And if they could be, they’d fire a lot more than 6 rounds per second. I believe the cyclic rate on full auto is around 800 rounds per minute, not 360.

    He can never go home. Didn’t you know? They recognize him for the garbage he is, and he’ll never be able to work in England again.

    You forgot Politicians.

  • krackatoeowww

    no they are trying to imply a simple modification,and make it look like something easy(it is not,and it’s a federal offence,and big time sentence),…but since there is a legal trigger device (bumpfire),..that simulates auto,that’s what they are refering to, feinstein pulled the same stunt the other night,…they fail to mention that to use slide or bump fire you have to shoot from the hip,and couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn accuratly,….these liberals lie and lie and lie.

  • Sigivald

    I’ll give him “.233” as a simple typo, it’s easy to make and easy to miss, and not meaningful.

    Thinking they’re “automatic weapons [like the military uses]”, that’s a meaningful conceptual error he should be raked over the coals for.

    And he probably believes that an AR is easy to convert – and the existence of real “drop-in auto sears” for M-16s is a good reason:

    Most people wouldn’t know you need to modify/replace the bolt carrier to make it work… or that to make a GI FCG fit in an AR-15 you need to do some machining.

    After all, the “other side” has been trying to tell us for years that it’s “easy” to make a machinegun from a rifle, despite the way they never seem to be used by the criminals you’d think would be the biggest market…
