How ’bout that? Piers Morgan develops strange new aversion to the term ‘AR-15’

On Monday, Musket Morgan was all over the “news” that one of those evil AR-15 rifles used Washington Navy Yard shooting suspect Aaron Alexis to commit its murderous crime.

https://twitter.com/piersmorgan/statuses/379749140734828545

CNN and the Associated Press are now reporting that Alexis used a purchased shotgun and two stolen handguns. An AR-15 rifle or CNN’s version, an “AR-15 shotgun”? Not so much.

So, naturally, Piers immediately updated his 3.7 million Twitter followers on the latest development. Or not:

How ’bout that?

He’s careful that way! Wouldn’t want to jump the gun, eh Piers?

Morgan, of course, is still a-OK with using the words “gun” and “NRA.” But he’s suddenly nervous about “AR-15.” Hmm.

It’s not like Piers is unaware of the latest developments. He solicited questions via the #AskPiers hashtag …

https://twitter.com/piersmorgan/status/379973169395675137

… and there were plenty of “fun” questions to clue him in.

Givers that we are, Musket, let us help you out. Perhaps some wording like this?

Exit question that’s full of more win than Musket will ever be able to handle:

Update:

Still no mention of “AR-15,” but now that he’s been called out, Musket notes “lots of confusion over exactly what guns Wash Navy Yard shooter used.”

    Piers Morgan would trip a woman to get away, he needs no gun.

      And then claim the GOP’s war on women caused that woman to be gunned down because of his own cowardice.

    • Michelle

      And the kicker is, he’s not even a citizen – he’s a guest. A guest overstaying his welcome.

      • Ty in TX

        A guest who doesn’t understand the proper behavior whilst in his host’s home.

    • Joseph Bentz

      Be kind to Piers, he has nowhere else to go. He is persona non grata in England. It is hoped that his welcome here will very shortly run its course.

    Piers Morgan is mentally ill, obsessed with guns, and was kicked out of England. How did he get a green card?

      When, exactly, did he come to the United States?

    If liberals want to ban guns because they can be used to kill people, then we should ban anything else that has caused people to be killed.
    Since people are killed by drunk drivers, alcohol should be banned FOR EVERYONE.
    Since a few muslims committed acts of terror on our soil, that “religion” should not be allowed on our soil.
    Since people have been killed because of texting and driving, cell phones should be outlawed.
    Since your bare hands and feet can be used as deadly weapons, we should all have our hands and feet removed.
    And libs shouldn’t get pissy about this. I’m just using their method of determining who should be punished for the actions of a few.

    • therantinggeek

      I would ask to put a ban on stupidity, too, but I’m still trying to develop a means to turn that into a renewable energy resource. 😉

      • ObamaFail

        If we banned stupidity in this country, we’d have to ask Joe Biden to leave immediately.

        • therantinggeek

          Well, we can’t do that, now can we? The stupidity from him alone could easily power a dozen or more homes… #justsayin

        • http://politicallyincorrectcanadian.blogspot.ca/ Reverend Ken

          …and if we banned skuz-slimes the usurper and his crew would too.

    • MNWoman

      I remember reading comments about how cars can be deadly if driven by drunk people or if an crazy person wants to cause harm, can just use their car to run people over.

      The liberal replies were fairly typical. To summarize some of them, they were:
      Cars have a purpose other than causing harm

      If we have to register our cars and buy insurance to drive them, we should have to register our guns and buy insurance to own them

      Of course, I looked in my handy-dandy Constitution booklet and I did not read anywhere in the Constitution where owning a car was a right. Interesting.

      • Mehow

        The harm notion is illogical since when the police did harm using guns to the shooter we are talking about now in DC, they SAVED lives. It’s not the capacity for harm that matters, it’s who is harmed and why that is material. Also, guns DO have other purposes than to harm humans, hunting animals like deer is one for meat and sausages, and competitive shooting is another…

    • DondaLonda

      my school (back in the day) banned nuts coz a couple kids were highly allergic. A “nut free zone”. Then they discovered another family where some of the only snacks the kids could eat were nuts. Conundrum.

  • NC-Conservative

    I’m sure the media and govenment will change the shotgun to the AR-15, somehow mistaken one for the other just to keep the “ban assault rifles campaign” in the fore front.

    • therantinggeek

      Give it another day or two.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      They’re trying to get a few AR-15s they sent to Mexico back so they can plant them as evidence.

    • MNWoman

      Nah, they will just say something like “even though an AR-15 was not used in this horrific crime, it must be remembered it COULD have been used”.

    • Joseph Bentz

      If you were in the military you should reminder this: *this is my rifle this is my gun this is for shootin this is for fun.”

  • Stephen L. Hall

    “Half of the 12 worst mass shootings in American history have occurred in the past 6 years. Fact.” — Piers Morgan

    Because without mass “shootings” with guns, this is what happens:

    “The Wall Street Bombing (September 16, 1920): A horse drawn
    carriage packed with 100 pounds of dynamite and 500 pounds of iron was
    detonated outside the headquarters of J.P. Morgan Bank on Wall Street.
    Although anarchists were believed to be responsible, no culprit was ever
    prosecuted for the bombing that took the lives of 30 people and injured
    another 300.”

    • therealguyfaux

      How many AR-15’s were used at the Murrah Building?
      Ban rental trucks.

    • Damien Johnson

      And this was in 1920! That really puts a hole in the argument that mass killings would somehow be prevented if modern guns were banned.

    • Jerry Camp

      Half of the worst 12 in the last 6 years?
      Damn, I knew Obama’s America was Bizarro World, but he did win a Nobel Peace Prize, right? Guess that Hope & Change thing ain’t working out as planned since his supporters keep taking guns into Gun-Free Zones and shooting people.

    Quite possibly one of the best lines to Piers ever. Definitely in the top 10.

  • Maria L B

    QUESTION! This is seriously legitimate. Why do liberals argue that we should ban guns to stop gun violence, but not ban abortion because it won’t stop abortion? I’m thinking the logic is not consistent.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      You answered your question with the last sentence.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/JayJay3Fifty7 JJ357

      There is logic here, the logic is advance the agenda that does the most destruction.

    • alanstorm

      Logic? From “liberals”?

      Logic and reason are toxic to them. In fact, using either or both in an argument with a “liberal” is now a hate crime.

      • Damien Johnson

        Or if you say “the war on women was drivel” it means you hate all women LOL.

    When I think of Piers Morgan railing against firearms opposite those more thoroughly informed. I think of the campaign losing scene and photo of Martin Sheen hiding behind a baby to ward of Chris Walken’s rifle shots in David Cronenberg’s, ‘The Dead Zone’.

      To face the criminal charges that await him in the UK.

  • meeester

    If he FELT it was an AR15 that should be good enough for us.

  • andso

    Is Piers Morgan being held hostage in America or is he free to leave any time?

    • Michelle

      Amazing isn’t it? He’s here as a guest who chose to come here and all he does is whine and complain about our Constitution. If our freedoms are so troubling for him, why does he stay? Does he really think he stands a chance of changing our Constitution and Bill of Rights? He’s delusional if he believes that, and apparently he does. I sure wish he’d go to Canada or Australia, both places that are much more suited to his tastes and we’d all be the happier for it.

    The “guns that were used” seemed pretty important to Piers yesterday. Hypocrite and a douche.

    Can we take up a collection to fly Jeremy Clarkson over here to punch Piers Morgan in the mouth again?

  • Demoivre

    Piers spends his entire segment yesterday bitching about the ar-15 and only the ar-15
    He didn’t focus on anything else except the EH ARR FIFTUEEN
    New information comes out that an ar-15 wasn’t used
    H-h-hey guys…it d-doesn’t matter right?
    Right guys?

    “Mentally ill, obsessed with violent video games, kicked out of the Navy…How did Wash Navy Yard shooter get a gun AND security clearance?” He said he was doing a story for CNN and Pierce Morgan on why people SHOULD NOT be able to carry guns they were licensed,TRAINED to handle and USE PROPERLY to defend themselves in horrible situations like this because if they shot back at the criminal and stopped him before it began, they wouldn’t be able to push their agenda for more gun grabbing laws!

  • Donaldsays#FreePaulieWalnuts

    Piers wondered how this guy got a gun with all his problems? He said he was working for Piers and CNN showing the American people why trained, responsible, licensed gun owners or military people SHOULD NOT be allowed to have guns, because if they did, they WOULD have dropped that thug in his tracks before he hurt anybody, and that would TOTALLY ruin their gun-grabbing, anti-second amendment, libtard, left wing, nobody but OUR bodyguards should have guns agenda. Unfortunately, for the victims, it worked all to well. (The not having guns part worked, not the defending themselves like they SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO part)

  • Richard Jefferies

    It is worth reminding Piers and others, and even my conservative brethren so they can tell off a liberal co-worker that the Aurora shooter had set up an explosive trap so elaborate that it took EOD more than 24 hours to breech his apartment to disarm it. Had his planned worked, he would have killed far more people with chemicals he obtained from Colorado University, and 10 gallons of gasoline, than he did with his shooting.

  • Dr Van Nostrand

    First he makes a big deal over the AR-15 which SOURCES TOLD HIM was actually stolen at the base. Then he pivots after he finds out neither story is true to “oh it’s not a big deal.” What a pompous dick.

  • dagnytaggart

    “How did this guy get a gun and security clearance?” I think that’s a question for the pencil pushers at the police dept who didn’t pursue charges and the Navy, who dropped the ball when he was an enlisted problem. Sheesh, this guy even sought help from the VA recently I think. The gun isn’t the problem, it’s the bureaucrats who can’t be bothered to do their jobs.
