OBAMA'S DUCK COLLECTION
Can the "effete" hyper-partisan, socialist-infiltrated Hillary Clinton's State Department be trusted to produce a "Pro-America" viewpoint?

Ignorant Brit Twit Piers Morgan will do anything to rev up sagging ratings, including misusing the Second Amendment

Is smarmy, self-righteous twit Brit, Piers Morgan of CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight trying to duplicate the media attention on Bob Costas when he sounded off on the “gun culture” in the United States?

Piers Morgan Says Second Amendment Only Meant for Muskets

Piers Morgan has a great English accent, but it’s obvious that he doesn’t know much about the United States Constitution. Morgan is editorial director of First News, a national newspaper for children, and the host of CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. As with most of these show hosts, they aren’t very informed when it comes to history and logic.

Morgan got into a debate over gun control after Bob Costas went on his anti-gun rant following Jovan Belcher’s murder of his girlfriend and his later suicide. Trying to add credibility to his anti-gun position, Morgan made reference to the United States Constitution. Here’s what he said:

“The Second Amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns and assault rifles. Fact.”

See if you can find this claim in the Second Amendment:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Even without this embedded constitutional right, we have the right to bear arms. Rights don’t come from the State. This point is not often made. The Constitution doesn’t say that we have a right to work or own property. The Second Amendment was included in the Constitution to ensure the already existing right to “keep and bear arms.” Morgan should study some of his own British history before he spouts off in America.

The good news …

Without this publicity to temporarily boost his sagging ratings, Morgan continues as a comparative low-ratings Brit twit whose show appears to be one of the highlights on CNN, marginally better that Rachel Maddow and basement-rated Anderson Cooper. In comparison with the Fox programming, Morgan is a non-player.  Personally, I would like to see this loser replaced by my favorite British presenter, Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear – who famously punched Piers Morgan in the face for being a total wanker.
