CNN’s Piers Morgan beclowned himself after freaking out about an AR-15 being used in the Washington Navy Yard shooting, which turned out not to be the case. However, Morgan is still obsessed with that kind of gun, and can’t understand why anybody would want one:
And what was America's reaction? The AR-15 was the country's fastest selling weapon over the next few months. Just beyond belief.

Tweeters tried to help Morgan understand the reason, and that the sales increases were confined to AR-15’s and people unconnected to Newtown:
@piersmorgan Because Americans were (rightly) concerned that an excellent self-defense weapon would be taken away from them. No mystery.

Final thought for Musket to ponder:

Heh. But since Morgan doesn’t seem to understand the reason those guns (or ammunition) flew off the shelves so quickly, we doubt he’d understand the thick irony in the above tweet.
