Piers Morgan hasn’t exactly been receptive to the voices of gun rights activists, but is he getting ready to turn over a new leaf? This afternoon, he announced his plans to venture down to Texas for a live broadcast from a gun shop and range:

He claims he’s serious:

Never.

Yes please! We could use the giggle fits:

It’s true!

Say, Piers, maybe you could make a few more stops on your tour:

Or are you afraid of gun-free zones?

  • CatHerder

    Just guessing, but it’ll probably be one in demorat territory, Austin.

    This oughta be a hoot.

    • TEXANONLY

      I guarantee you he will never shoot up here in Collin County, we would kick his ass out.

  • Dan Thorpe

    I just am picturing those videos you see of women firing handguns that they cannot control and it comes back and cracks them in the head happening to Piers.

      Using a .22 no less.

  • TocksNedlog

    In Chicago the shooting ranges are free and open, and eye protection is optional.

  • BobHTX

    Proof the TX border is NOT secure.

    • SunsetLament

      As a Texan, I blame the 6th Amendment (that one is still standing, right?).

  • TocksNedlog

    Musket practice?

  • Joe W.

    I hope the limey bass turd stays away from MY little patch of Texas. He’s about as welcome here as a steaming pile of dog squat on a Dallas sidewalk in the middle of an August afternoon.

    • rinodino

      Please Texas Loves dog squat that’s why you have the cowboys, rangers, and mavs

      • TEXANONLY

        Come on down and get you butt kicked.

  • American.Vet

    I would be more then happy to take Piers out wild hog hunting while he is here. Once he is in between a boar and a sow during mating season, or a sow and her piglets, he will learn the answer to “Why does anybody NEED an AR-15 with 30 round magazines?”.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      A Henry .44 Magnum rifle would be a good option too. :-)

      • American.Vet

        It would if you are on the ground shooting… not so much in a helicopter hunt though. :-)

        • Scott Coleman

          You do that and we’ll have him claiming the need to ban assault helicopters with a 3 gallon fuel limit. Hope the cheerio British wash-up enjoys the hospitality of many rounds going off by the awesome Texans. At least then the sound will drown him out like he does with his butt-in ramblings of nonsensical BS.

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          Well, if you’re in a chopper, I suppose you don’t need to worry so much about getting between Mama Pig and Baby Piggies. :- }

    • kenai

      Well, if you use something besides that puny little .223, it wouldn’t take 30 rounds to kill a pig.

      • American.Vet

        Maybe you should learn something about what you are talking about before you open your mouth. Not all AR-15’s are .223/5.56 caliber. I have a .308 AR-15 for hog hunting. And use the 30 round magazine so I can drop more hogs as quickly as possible. With wild hogs doing more then $400 million dollars in damage each year in this State, the more we can kill the better it is.

        • kenai

          I don’t claim to be an expert on Armalites, but IIRC, ARs other than the .223 are AR10s. However, use whatever you prefer. If you want a 30 round mag that’s fine with me. I have a couple of 30 rounders for my FAL but don’t use them, too heavy and awkward. Don’t use the FAL for hunting, either. I prefer something with a little more authority than a .308. Too big for small game and too small for big game. I’m not fond of the .223 for anything. For small game I like my .22 Hornet and the .220 Swift for coyotes and other varmints.

          Maybe you should learn a little more about rifles and calibers before you start talking. Lots of rifles out there that will kill pigs faster than either the .223 or the .308.

          • FGCU_James

            Could just be that’s what he shoots best with.

            Put it another way: would you rather carry a slightly smaller caliber which you could shoot confidently and accurately, or a larger one which you simply cannot handle?

          • kenai

            Hell, I don’t care what he shoots. My original post was just meant to be a jab at the anti gun nuts and their goofy notions of ‘assault guns’ being some ‘incredibly powerful satanic device’ when, in fact, they’re just a relatively weak suck varmint gun.

            Agreed about the larger calibers. When I take my old six bits to the range, 10 or 12 rounds is usually plenty. Then it’s time to switch to the lighter calibers. No need for anyone to get their back up.

          • Scott Coleman

            Well, you could use a Barrett 98. That will explode your intended target, or at least crack an engine block. Gotta love the 50BMG!

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

            Mmm-hmm,use tracer rounds or explosive, and BAM! instant barbecue!

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          Well hell’s bells, if all you want to do is kill varmint pigs, set out poison bait for ’em!

          /Like free health care, free rubbers, free needles . . .

      • http://www.facebook.com/JoeZepeda606 Joe Zepeda

        You have absolutely no idea WTF you are talking about do you? As a south Texas hunter, i assure you the .223 is plenty for those dirty hogs

        • kenai

          Jeezus H, don’t get your panties in such a twist. If you had bothered to read a little further you would have seen that my post was meant as a jab at the anti ‘assault gun’ morons.

          Besides, the .223 IS a puny little round. If it’s sufficient for Texas hogs, fine but Texas must grow some puny little pigs. In some states, the .223 is considered inadequate for even deer sized game and is illegal to use for that purpose.

      so very true !

    You get a Piers Morgan when you let limey blue bloods procreate with their next of kin.

  • 1SkepticalChick

    This might get good…

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Oh, this will be rich. Not that I’ll waste any time watching it. Just somebody post up the pics of him rolling on the ground with his fingers in his ears, K?

  • sliversimpson

    Hasn’t Piers argued that he would never own a gun, and doesn’t understand why anyone else would? Hyporicrsy at it’s finest… I guess being on TV means that you should be endowed with more rights than you would prescribe for your viewers.

    • Ardell Simon

      I would assume he is hoping to make fun of the gun owners in Texas. He will attempt to show that he is much more educated and morally superior. He is a waste of time to listen to or watch. I would hope no one is at the gun range! Make him look like a big fool just like Geraldo and his big vault show.

      • http://www.facebook.com/JoeZepeda606 Joe Zepeda

        The best part is as a Texan, He will receive a polite welcome no matter how bad they want to curb his face. They will kill him with kindness, just watch. As we say “Bless his heart” lol…. I just wish he was going to a good range and not Tactical Firearms. They care about the almighty buck and not the Constitution. Been there a few times, the Owner is a tool.

    • http://www.facebook.com/JoeZepeda606 Joe Zepeda

      Well there is a report online where he openly stated how he wants a gun for home defense and that he wishes he could tie up and use a cattle prod on intruders testicles. He ALSO said that he wanted to Shoot and KILL Top Gears Jermy Clarkson and some author/writer named Gill something…

    I don’t care what he does or what happens to him.

    Hmmm. Interesting. I won’t watch (gotta deny him ratings), but I will catch some online videos.

    • Ardell Simon

      Agree… I just can’t watch Piers!

  • 67falcon

    I have alot of friends in TX,if I were he,I would bone up on the ALAMO, BOB WILLS, STEVIE RAY VAUGHN…have the gun manufacters that have business there on the show…Demand he has no armed security,,,,you know disarmed like he wants us…SHOOT A SEMI/AND A FULL AUTO .556, a sniper rifle with the AMERICAN SNIPER author there….,HE NEEDS TO SPEND A WEEK THERE…IF HE AS ANY BALLS AT ALL.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Big “If”, bro.

  • http://twitter.com/InformedNow InformNow

    Hey Piers, some free advice… You’d get higher viewership ratings then your usual miniscule numbers if you wear the appropriate Texas attire. It is a white shirt with three red concentric circles, each circle smaller then the previous one followed by a solid red circle in the center. I know I’d watch!

    Enjoy your show and shut your mouth Piers, you might learn something!

  • J.N. Ashby

    He’s gonna use a gun?! The hell kind of hypocrisy is this?

  • http://www.facebook.com/somethingfishie Felicia Winfree Cravens

    This is down the block from my house. I’m SO going.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Paul-Smith/100002359397419 Paul Smith

      Where is he going to be and when?

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Now remember Piers — you may not know this, being a foreigner and all, but during the Civil War, TEXAS WAS A LOYAL UNION STATE. So if you want to be popular, be sure to wear some caps and jackets with patches saying things like, “God Bless General Sherman!” and “Hang The Rebels!” and “States Rights = LUZRS!”

  • http://www.facebook.com/robert.stuch Robert Stuch

    “Proof the TX border is not secure”. Heh heh. I like that.
    I’d say though that the store ought to be closed giving him no face there, and nobody at the range.

  • http://twitter.com/jamienelson1 Jamie Nelson

    If he is in the country on a Nonimmigrant visa (I believe he is) he must meet one of the following provisions to even hold a firearm.
    (A) admitted to the United States for lawful hunting or sporting purposes or is in possession of a hunting license or permit lawfully issued in the United States;
    (B) an official representative of a foreign government who isβ€”
    (i) accredited to the United States Government or the Government’s mission to an international organization having its headquarters in the United States; or
    (ii) en route to or from another country to which that alien is accredited;
    (C) an official of a foreign government or a distinguished foreign visitor who has been so designated by the Department of State; or
    (D) a foreign law enforcement officer of a friendly foreign government entering the United States on official law enforcement business.

    Wear plenty of Kevlar Piers…..I wonder how far he will be from the border. i wonder if CNN would buy him back from the Cartels?

  • Maxx

    It’s obvious that Piers has found his “Casey Anthony” groove. He is redefining the “tragedy for ratings” schtick, albeit with levels of pretentious and sanctimony previously unheard of. The only difference between a cow and Piers Morgan is you get less milk from a cow.

    He is going to Tactical Firearms in Katy, TX. Mind you Tactical Firearms came under fire August 2012 for supporting the ban on Online Ammo Ban! So although he is going to TX to a gun shop, he will be at a shop ran by a greedy bastard who’s about the money, not the Constitution.
