Piers Morgan took issue with a Twitchy story yesterday about his reaction to threats made to Dana Loesch:
DESPICABLE: Piers Morgan victim-blames Dana Loesch for her rape and death threats https://t.co/mwHnqqriJm

A point was raised:
@DLoesch isn't a victim because she's trained to take out threats to her and her family. She's empowered through her gun ownership/education

Morgan responded this way:
Guns don't 'empower' civilians, they kill them. https://t.co/zOWTS2B7fH

That’s the empowering part. https://t.co/I0GWm6FLiL

They also kill tyrants. https://t.co/DJZe94OFcc

Liberals have an unusual talent, they are able to construct the shortest contradictory sentences imaginable.

Does Piers see what happened there? Maybe, maybe not.
Sure empowered a whole lot of citizens against your crown, Musket https://t.co/frd0hm3LHd

Ask the 13 colonies about that, Piers. https://t.co/K8VNPMmsjF

There were multiple levels of “fail” in Morgan’s tweet:
I dunno Piers..I'm gonna feel mighty empowered if I, as a 5'4 woman have to defend myself against a 6'0 man. Biology is rude,guns equalize

@piersmorgan I’ll buy your argument when the courts try and convict guns, rather than shooters, for murder.

Guns, devoid of human influence, kill people. This is liberal logic.

I am no longer afraid to be in my home alone because I know how to handle firearms, and I always have one with me.
I'm not going back. 🖕🏻

They empower me. I feel safe with them, https://t.co/1EtTsx5ZCq

There's a rapist coming after your daughter. Which would you rather have her "empowered" with.
B. A gun https://t.co/DASRSTTfzW

Your idiocy never ceases to amaze me. https://t.co/4e2cOrXMGu

And then there’s the lefty hypocrisy factor:
Does hired armed security "empower" the wealthy who can afford it? I cannot and will keep my guns for my own protection. FO Piers! https://t.co/k6jP8ww4uk

Please note that Piers has armed civilians called “bodyguards” who empower him to be a raging loon. https://t.co/sQ6Nuuw2ko

The Left has one set of rules for themselves and another for everybody else.
