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.



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 …

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.”
