Yesterday, Piers Morgan suggested a “crazy idea from an ignorant foreigner” (naturally it involved Americans giving up “some” of their guns). Today’s argument takes it a step further, as Morgan explains why your guns are worthless as a defense against possible tyranny:
If your government goes 'tyrannical', it has 5000 nuclear weapons at its disposal.
I doubt your AR-15 will be very useful in such a fight. https://t.co/zPWug8WOus

You didn't think through this did you Piers.

Oh? So the US is going to blow itself off the map? That's plain silly.

you think a government is going to nuke its own territory?

The suddenly “tyrannical” government officials in Morgan’s hypothetical scenario would have to be quite self-loathing:
This is your "logic" Piers?
The government and those leading it are going to commit suicide?

You’ve got to be among one of the biggest fools on television to think that a government will put their own land in danger like this…. https://t.co/yuMiLzGrkx

Well yeah, there’s that little snag in Morgan’s argument.
Because the tyrannical government is going to nuke its own country.
Holy smokes, Piers. Think, THEN tweet. https://t.co/Ht3I1yZIyx

This one was almost even more laughable than his “muskets” argument.
