As Twitchy reported yesterday, CNN’s ratings-challenged Piers Morgan took to Twitter to fawn over Bob Costas’ sermon on the evils of guns. “The 2nd amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns & assault rifles,” the gun control fetishist tweeted.

In a beautiful smackdown heard ’round the Twitterverse, author and commentator Carol Roth went after Morgan for his holier-than-thou preaching. When he snootily asked what part of the Constitution addresses self-defense, Roth zinged, “right next to the word ‘muskets.’

Piers’ response came 18 hours later. No, really: 18 hours!

Hey, give the man a break. Witty retorts are awfully hard, though Morgan could learn a thing or two from Roth.

Although Morgan took the better part of a day to respond to Roth, it wasn’t because he wasn’t on Twitter. He tweeted this a couple of hours before getting back to Roth.

Aww, poor Piers. He’s a martyr for the cause!

      Or even like the U.K. with strict gun control and higher violent crime rates.

  • Bui van vat

    Piers Morgan has as much right as anyone else to his opinion on gun control — in England. If he wants to live in a society with fewer guns, I’ll offer to help him pack for his return trip back. He might be a little hesitant, though; he’s got out of the woods yet on the phone hacking scandal.

  • Jack Deth

    Being such a righteous Pommy Bastard, I thought that Piers (What kind of a parent named their son “Piers”?!!!) would have dug deep into the history of Monty Python. And John Cleese’s endless courses in Self Defense with “Defending yourself when attacked by a Pointed Stick, banana or raspberry!”

    Most of which ended with Eric Idle’s recruit being shot by a .38 revolver. Or crushed by a falling one ton weight.

    • tredglx

      And how does one defend against an assailant with a one ton weight…

      If you’re Piers(1), you put someone taller next to you. And run.

      • peteee363

        i deeply feel no assailant would be walking down the street carrying a one ton weight. if there was a person who could carry that, he also wouldn’t be able to walk, or run very fast. pelting him with bananas, or eggs might make him lose control of the weight, and drop it on his head. but if gang banger is pulling out a revolver, i want one, or a semi auto pistol, then it would be a fairer fight. don’t libs always mention how they want everything fair? i am not sure if my back could handle a one ton weight, leave that for piers!

        • tredglx

          LOL! Excellent reply.

  • Marsh626

    If he really wanted to reduce gun violence he’d support racial segregation.

    “Hispanics” and blacks commit insanely high rates of violent crime in general, including violent gun crime.

    That’s the REAL reason why Chicago, Brazil, etc, have such high gun violence rates despites severe restrictions on firearms.

    But nobody is allowed to say that due to political correctness…

    Gun violence rates in America have very little to do with NRA and Tea Supporting Red State White Americans…

    Yet we always take the blame for the Left’s ghetto brown base acting like degenerate 3rd world mongoloids…

      As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before

      occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to
      the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the
      next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.

      –Tench Coxe

      The militia of these free
      commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared
      with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are
      the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall
      turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to
      disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement
      of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American … the unlimited
      power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state
      governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the

    An open letter to Bob Costas and Jason Whitlock

    Gentlemen: I see that you have chosen to use the horrific crime of the murder of Kasandra Perkins to express your belief that guns are the problem, not the men who wield them. I am utterly certain that you believe that you have the moral high ground on this matter. I am equally certain that such a belief is appallingly wrong, not to mention terribly misogynistic. Why do I say this? Because had your desires on gun control been in place, I would not be alive to be writing this now.

    Do you know what kept me safe? Not some piece of paper. Not a judge tut tutting at him and shaking his/her finger and telling him to leave me alone. Not the police, who, after all, would only be able to respond once he had caused me harm. No, what kept me safe was my Glock.
    My Ex was nearly a foot taller than me and, at the time, had about 150 pounds on me. If he had been able to get close enough to me to harm me, there were very few options I had to protect myself. But with my Glock, well, I would be able to stop him before he got that close. I am alive today because he knew that if he tried to make that otherwise, there was a better than even chance he would be the one lying there in a pool of blood instead of me.

    Let us not beat around the bush, you want to sacrifice my life on the altar of your political beliefs. How dare you? Honestly, who do the two of you think you are to demand that my blood be shed so that you may preen about what wonderful people you are? Why, precisely, are you removing the responsibility for Kasandra Perkins’ murder from Jovan Belcher and placing it on an inanimate object? That is what you are doing, after all. Your position is that absent the gun, Jovan Belcher would not have murdered Kasandra Perkins. What utter rot. It’s not as if, to pick something at random, he could have picked up a knife and slit her throat so violently that she was nearly decapitated. Oh no, that would never ever happen. By focusing on the gun, you are choosing to make Jovan Belcher a mere bystander to his own actions. That is horrific. Jovan Belcher murdered Kasandra Perkins. He chose to pull that trigger. He chose to take her life. How dare you attempt to absolve him in even the slightest manner for that crime. He killed her. Not a gun. He did it. No one else.

    I will not let you two demand that my blood be shed so that you can sit there and declaim your supposed superior morality to the world. No. You would rather I be dead. That is the logical conclusion of your positions. I will not die for you. No other woman should either.

    Alive despite you,


    • tredglx

      So glad you’re still with us, Alexandria.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Yes, and he shot her 9 times. 9 times. I firmly believe that had there been no gun, he would have murdered her another way, and possibly the baby too.

      • righthook38

        Exactly. He’s a football player. Who’s to say he wouldn’t have just strangled her with his bare hands? How utterly ridiculous.

        • wolfie773

          And then, following their logic, Costas and Whitlock would have taken to the airwaves to demand that all people had their hands removed. Because hands can be used as weapons.

    • Keith Myatt

      Very, very good points Alexandria. In fact, even lacking a weapon, Jovan could have killed his girlfriend with his bare hands I am sure. I am very glad you are alive and well to relate this story. Too many women are not. I remember a young actress (I cannot remember her name) but she had a restraining order against a stalker when he murdered her with a knife. Yes, that RO really put the fear of god in him. I would certainly like to see the stats of women who have defended themselves with a gun and put that in Piers Morgans face.

      Who’s the creep who actually voted this post down?

  • buckeyelady

    The only point that Piers Morgan has is his foolish notion that there should be a ban on gun ownership. He thinks that will end all gun violence. But perhaps if he’d see the other side of the issue he would understand the right to bear arms is a fundamental right in a free society, to have the right to protect oneself from the harm of others. Once a society gives up that right it leaves the government wide open to control the nation, and then we are no longer free people. The founders knew this. History knows this. Hitler knew it. How come Piers can’t understand this and promote our rights rather than trample on them. Piers is living in LaLa Land.

        So you are saying civilians should be allowed to own tanks? That inevitable would happen if there is no line drawn.

        • peteee363

          currently civillians are allowed to own tanks. but! not the ammo used in them. so it looks like you are of the same thoughtless mind of piers. try to buy a machine gun, or a nuclear bomb, chances are you will quickly be told no, or arrested. but there is no line on weapons that are not automatic. as technology changes, so must the weaponry. people do own cannons, and long range rifles, as well as shotguns. why must a line be drawn, when it is spelled out so clearly. can i send you a copy of the constitution for dummies?

    actually, fully automatic weapons (uzi’s), and nuclear bombs are currently against the law to own, or use. but, there is a big difference between a fully automatic machine gun, and a simple semi-automatic pistol, or rifle. also if my neighbor is a pest, a nuclear bomb would not only remove him, but the whole block, and me too, does piers even know what a nuke can do? is he that stupid?

    Piers, one of the reasons WE beat YOUR ancestors was they were using muskets, but WE had developed the Kentucky and Pennsylvania Long Rifles. They were state of the art for that day, with increased effective range and accuracy.

    The 2nd Amendment was written with the average citizen possessing the most advanced rifle in the world. Using your logic, every adult citizen should be issued an automatic rifle on their 18th birthday.

      The 2nd Amendment is Federal. This is typical of liberal mental disorder to look to the Nanny for all the answers. The Amendment is fine as is, however, my state may not wish me to own a tank, rpg, etc…..

      We are a Repubilc. We are supposed to be 50 labs of Liberty.
      Another logical answer would be that a tank would certainly damage, at minimum the roads if not the local community by moving, much less firing a projectile. Hauling a cannon for your farm protection during the Civil War was not making all your neighbors pay for constant road maintainance, etc.

          Try reading. Peteee363 already answered you. Are you expecting somebody to print the Federal regulations regarding every conceivable type of ordinance? Suffice it to say that there are plenty of regulations on the books spelling out just what firearms and armaments that are allowed to be purchased by citizens. Some people may take issue with some of them one way or another, but that’s why we fought with those muskets, so we have a say in how the laws read.

      With 100 Million Civilian Gun Owers in the Nation it would be quite easy to pick up HUMVEEs (some even with Mines and Heavy Weapons inside) from the U.S. Military if the Nation was being enslaved by the Government by way of the U.S. Military.
      With Zero Civilian Gun Owers in the Nation it would be very easy for the Government by way of the U.S. Military to grind you and everyone you know up in to food.

      Mr. Burr,

      The “line” is best drawn by the Individual facing the decision, not by the fears or notions of others. More often than not, say in 99.99% of the cases, common sense and a limited budget will help draw that line. It’s the fact that there’s always that .01% — no matter how strict you make the laws, that the rest of us should be left to make our own choices.

  • Gallatin

    Does it authorise individual ownership of tanks, UZIs and nukes? > RT @caroljsroth @piersmorgan right next to the word “muskets”

    Let’s see if I remember my history right again. We needed some cannon for the siege of Boston so we took our muskets and went up to Fort Ticonderoga. Once we got there we surprised the most powerful military in the world and took the fort from them. We then transported the cannon back to Boston where one morning the most powerful military in the world awoke to the cannon staring down at them. So no we don’t necessarily need the 2nd Amendment to allow us to have a tank in our back yard; when we need it we’ll just take it from you.

    • rickg62

      Not to quibble, but we already had Fort Ti. Ethan Allen did surprise them and captured it relatively peacefully. During the siege of Boston we did go and retrieve them which, of itself, was quite a story.

      • Gallatin

        Your quibbling is fine I didn’t recall exactly how it happened but I knew some basic details. I think my point still stands though, we took our muskets and captured more fire power. So piers morgan is still an elitist buffoon.

    Seriously, what else would you expect from a Brit? The 2nd Amendment was written specifically to protect the US citizenry from BRITISH INVASION! If the population of 1812 had been “armed” like Putz Morgan wants, we would be sipping tea, eating crumpets and pledging to the Queen. Uh — that’s why the 2nd Amendment exists, Piers. And to keep us safe from any local tinpot who thought he would just move in and take George III’s place. It is still as amazingly relevant a right today as it was in 1786.

    • scott

      You should do more research on the purpose of the 2nd amendment. It wasn’t included as a foil against the Brits….

      • Keninmo

        The British Monarchy had a long history of disarming those they found quarrelsome. The canard of it being in because of Indians by Progressives is not the reason for it being a Constitutional Bill of Rights — self-defense at an inidividual level was taken for granted. The problem was that Britain had tried, and implemented, several Colonial American militia disarmament campaigns as early as the 1760’s, peaking on 18 Apr 1775, when Gage ordered the seizure of the Concord militia’s weapons and munitions, which…uh, lead to the Battle of Lexington and Concord, the start of the Revolutionary War. Hmmmm..guess you should probably research before posting, eh?

      • Keninmo

        For a simple, obvious example, William Knox, Under-Secretary of State for Colonial Affairs in 1777, on his opinion of American militias being armed “the Militia Laws should be repealed and none suffered to be
        re-enacted & the Arms of all the People should be taken away, &
        every piece of Ordnance removed into the King’s Stores, nor should any
        Foundry or manufacture of Arms, Gun-powder, or Warlike Stores, be ever
        suffered in America, nor should any Gunpowder, Lead, Arms or Ordnance be
        imported into it without License; they will have but little need of
        such things for the future, as the King’s Troops, Ships & Forts will
        be sufficient to protect them from danger.”

  • Jordan Burr

    Hey Piers, you only care about people who die from guns? (Actually all my guns have killed fewer people than Teddy ‘the Liver’ Kennedy) How about the MILLIONS of lives who end in Planned Parenthood clinics? The 2nd amendment is an ACTUAL enumerated right, unlike the political activism that resulted in the twisted contradiction of Roe.

  • Dustin Shadle

    Actually, you can own tanks, and uzi’s with the right papersowrk and checks, and lots of money that most people dont have to spend.

  • Johnny Blade

    Someone should tell Piers that the private ownership of tanks and Uzi’s aren’t illegal… lol

    • Jordan Burr

      That’s not what he is arguing. He is questioning where one should draw the line.

  • Scruffy Scirocco

    Piers needs to return to the land of the redcoats. The 2nd amendment was specifically designed to ensure that the people can wrest control from an out of control government if necessary. Not gonna happen with muskets. Yeah, Uzi’s and tanks qualify.

    There are two types of people: armed and victims.

  • Cyberquill

    Clearly, the 2nd Amendment allows individual citizens to bear the kind of arms that would be a match against the kind of arms a potentially tyrannical U.S. government backed by its military could use against the people.

    But since (a) regular handguns are no match against the 21st century U.S. military and (b) it would be absurd to allow citizens to possess rocket launchers and anti-aircraft artillery powerful enough to take down drones en route to bombing their homes, the 2nd Amendment has become effectively useless. How are you supposed to fight the most powerful military in history with Glocks and hunting rifles?

    Funny how every time a lib is confronted with violence they either A. Run away, B. Find a Conservative to protect them or, C.

Citizens have guns and defend themselves with them. The police force is already fighting a losing war against the criminals, not the citizens. Take away the guns from the citizens and you will have accomplished nothing positive. A criminal will always look to commit the criminal act 1st. It’s their nature.

  • Billy Martin

    Sir, First of all, I am not sure i would want the criminals to know I was opposed to the second amendment. To say that the amendment only referred to muskets is to miss the point of the amendment which was to have an armed citizenry for defense of the country and themselves since the government could not be present to protect each individual just as they cannot today. Ask Japan why they did not invade the U.S. during WWII.

  • Fuji

    This is the defense of progressives and their way to attack gun ownership in America. The whole point is the 2nd amendment was written ahead of its time and the founding fathers knew that firearms will evolve much better and more powerful. Irregardless whether it was written with a musket in mind. At that time that is a firearm and it is what it is. There is no rule as to how and what you can own to defend your home and your rights. So long as you are a law abiding citizen. You can buy and own a gun. in the present time. So stop drawing a line as to what firearm it is. As long as it can defend my home and my right does it matter what kind and type it is? It is a firearm it shoots bullets and can kill people. that is it!

  • Robert S. Latimer IV

    Pierce, this is America and the founders intended the 2nd amendment to not only give its citizens the right to use, possess, and sell them, but to also ensure our ability to keep our own government in check as the 4th check and balance. If you bother to read what the original writers of the 2nd intended (in their own words) not found in the amendment, you will fully understand the concept. Some Texas towns passed laws that required every home to have a firearm, their violent crime rates went to 0%! That’s the point, if you outlaw guns only criminals will have them. Besides some of the guns they are looking to ban (multi shot shot guns, semi automatic rifles) are guns we use to hunt (I myself hunt with a muzzleloader, no registration or federal check required).

  • mhojai

    I still find it astonishing that thought it is known that every tyrant and dictator in history made gun control their first priority, the “progressives openly delcare it (along with abortion) to be theirs, without any flack whatsoever drawn to the correlation.

I also wish I lived in a made up world filled with lollipops and rainbows. In the grown up world though, weapons save lives. Ignorant people like you are trying to take away our defense. You don’t realize that not allowing us to be armed gets people killed. These criminals that murder people, do you really think they care whether or not their guns are legal, the guns that they already have, or can buy from other criminals who do own them? do they care that murdering people is illegal? obviously not. You have no idea what you are asking for. I wonder if any of this man’s body guards own guns, and why. Maybe because the criminals have guns. But I’m sure he’s right…I’m sure all the bad guys’ guns will magically disappear if we outlaw them. I’m sure he’s right…

But then the bullets would just blame the cartridge, which in turn would just blame the gunpowder. It’s all so exhausting using liberal logic.

    Law abiding Americans must have firepower commensurate to that of the criminals that live within America. The Germans learned this lesson in WWII when their bolt action Kar 98s couldn’t stand up to the firepower of the M1 Garand (which I am sitting next to right now). That is why they invented the Gewehr 43. You can’t uninvent the gun. When are the gun control activists going to figure this out? By the way Pierz, I would love to invite you to a WWII re-enactment so you can vocalize your rediculous rhetoric in front of real AMERICANS.

  • Dwayne Jackson

    The most important part of the Second Amendment is not the part that says, “Shall not be in-fringed,” but instead is “being necessary to the security of a free State.” This is why our found-ing fathers said gun rights shall not be infringed and recognized what keeps a Free Nation se-cure, the militia.

    As commenters at Ace of Spades HQ pointed out… so this means that the 1st Amendment only applies to hand-set, cold metal typesetting with single-sheet manual presses and Piers Morgan can only use a megaphone and stand on a box to report as there was no TV in the 18th Century. So good analogy, Piers.

  • Dwayne Jackson

    Piers Morgans argument that the 2nd amendment was written with muskets in mind is ridiculous but for sake of argument lets agree that muskets were what our founding fathers had in mind. Did muskets not kill? Were muskets not a means of protection? Heres a newsflash Piers whether shot with a musket or a 9mm the result is the same. Wether you are killed by firearm, knife, rock or tire iron dead is dead.

    don’t you?”

    Does that mean the government’s right to limit people’s rights has NO limits?

  • Hired Mind

    The 2nd Amendment was crafted with cannons in mind – the most powerful weapons available at the time. That would imply that the Founders wanted people to at LEAST be authorized to own rocket launchers, if not nukes.

  • Grant Alexander

    I think too many here so wrapped in partisan crap miss the point Piers tries to make. Accepted is the 2nd Amendment and it is not going away. However, the laws already on the books do little to deter unqualified, underage, mentally unbalanced, criminally minded, or otherwise incompetent, irresponsible and dangerous persons from 1.acquiring with ease, and 2. doing massive harm to multiple persons. Columbine & Aurora, Congresswoman Griffith of Tucson jumps out, but DOZENS of multiple murders take place in AMERICA, every year because of ease of access, lack of background checks, non enforcement of laws. Criminal penalties hardly deter those in violation of gun laws, so the legal system is little help. No one is saying give up your weapons for self protection or the hunt, but why so many semi automatic ASSAULT weapons and handguns?

    If society FELT SAFE, then perhaps more would not resort to “policing themselves and the neighborhood”, but with criminals heavily and readily armed, the playing field had to be leveled. Both sides need to stop the name calling liberal this or right wingnut that, and understand the logic of why IDEALLY ONLY those in the military or policing agencies SHOULD have weapons mentioned, but these days, times and circumstances are just NOT ideal. Disarm the criminals, create safer living environments, stop encouraging violent behavior, and insist on proper registration just as one has for a car. After all, the Brits created this mess by abusing their authority of unarmed civilians. The genie is not going back in the bottle.

    Roth’s initial comment to Morgan didn’t even make sense. He said the 2nd Amendment was designed with muskets “in mind;” he did not say the Constitution specifically stated that only muskets could be owned.

    It’s both amazing and frightening that so many people think Morgan got owned; it shows a serious lack of basic reading comprehension and logical thinking. Roth also failed to answer Morgan’s question about the limits she believes should or should not be placed on individual weapon ownership.

    She said NOTHING, basically, and to anyone with a semblance of intelligence, she looked rather ridiculous.
