Piers Morgan: Ban All Semi-Automatic Guns, ‘No Civilian Needs One’

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Piers Morgan used a series of tweets Monday to call for a ban on all semi-automatic guns and stress his conviction that “no civilian needs one.”

His call for a ban on semi-automatic firearms was followed by other tweets in which he told Americans that the Second Amendment was never intended to protect an individual right to keep and bear arms. Rather, it was only intended to protect militias members’ ability to be armed.  

Regarding a ban on semi-automatic firearms, Morgan tweeted:

Morgan’s call overlooks the fact that millions upon millions of semi-automatic firearms are carried every day in America by licensed concealed permit holders. The firearms are a weapon of choice because they allow the vulnerable, who may not be physically strong, to carry a tool with which they can defend their lives. This is because a semi-automatic firearm uses it own recoil to cycle the next round into the chamber, thereby reducing the felt-recoil and allowing petite individuals–and persons who may have physical limitations–to carry a firearm with a round large enough to stop attackers.

In another tweet, Morgan explained his call for a ban on semi-automatic firearms by saying he fired an AR-15 “rapidly.” What he did not mention is the fact that an AR-15 or a Glock handgun or a Smith & Wesson double-action revolver will all shoot as fast as you pull the trigger but there is a difference between shooting fast and shooting accurately.  In other words, shooting “rapidly” often undercuts the gun’s usefulness.

Morgan’s calls for an all-out ban on semi-automatics came exactly one week and former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stephens called for a repeal of the Second Amendmentand just days after gun control proponent Chelsea Handler said her “armed guards…don’t have semi-automatic weapons.”

His call for a ban on semi-automatic firearms comes just over a week after Matthew McConaughy called for a ban on “assault weapons” and just prior to Rep. Debbie Dingell’s (D-Mich) introduction of firearm confiscation legislation.

Yet we are supposed to believe the left does not want to take away our guns?

  1. “… he told Americans that the Second Amendment was never intended to protect an individual right to keep and bear arms.”

    He’s right.

    It’s the Second ARTICLE that defines that UNALIENABLE right, and that’s EXACTLY it’s intent.

    Of course, this bullsh#t is coming out of the piehole of a COWARD who hides behind OTHER men with guns.

    Only one sensible answer to THIS commie @ssclown…

    1. “He’s right.

      Sorry, that was ill-defined.

      I meant he’s only right in the sense that it’s not the 2nd Amendment, it’s the 2nd Article.

      Naturally, this jewb#tch retard is wrong on every other level.

  2. And no one needs an ignorant, whiny little bitch like him and yet here he is! Who does he think he is, to tell/dictate what we need or do not need. He does not have the slightest clue as to what he is talking about. Since his home country is rapidly becoming a Muslim third world shit hole, he ought to STFU, and deal with those problems. Don’t care what he thinks and never will. To quote The Bard: (he is) a wind full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”

  3. Need, it’s not about needing a gun, in a free society it’s about a want
    Does this piss ant need 25 pairs of shoes or a 300k car? The answer is no
    F this little weasel

  4. this is what happens when abominations are given a voice….they will do/say anything their puppet masters demand so they can maintain their unnatural life style….Piers definitely wears a diaper

  5. Well Shit…….Piers here we go again with your limy brit point of view. Americans don’t care what you think, your opinion does’t matter. Your anti second amendment. Your anti American, and your without a doubt, one of the ugliest brits on the face of the earth… Hey Piers, here is a question,
    “Is that your face or did your neck throw up?” 🙂
