Rather large protest growing outside this Houston gun store now. Feels slightly tyrannical, ironically... #GunsInAmerica CNN 9pm—

If anything is ironic, it’s that a British journalist feels no hesitation ridiculing Americans (Ben Shapiro in particular) for thinking they might have to one day defend their freedom — seriously, when has that ever happened? To Morgan, though, the First Amendment is the one that matters; after all, he credited it with protecting him from “deportation.” When more than a few American citizens exercise their own First Amendment rights outside the confines of a New York TV studio, though, it can seem a little tyrannical.
So, is this what tyranny looks like?
What does it say that Morgan felt safer inside the gun range, with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott armed and waiting?
Even worse, Abbott was accompanied by a known gun nut who goes by the alias, “The Motor City Madman.” How did Morgan escape with his life? And did the owner of the gun shop manage to sell him a musket?
