Piers was for it before he was against it

In England, Piers Morgan joked about shooting rivals, said homeowners who kill burglars should not be prosecuted

CNN host and outspoken gun-control advocate Piers Morgan once joked about shooting professional enemies and separately wrote that he was a “rabid fascist” who wanted burglars tortured after a “decent period of cattle-prodding, testicle electrode treatment, and slow gentle skewering over hot coals.”

Morgan’s comments came in an interview with England’s Daily Mail newspaper. They concerned his dismissal as editor of the Daily Mirror, a rival British tabloid, after he was fired for publishing fake photos supposedly showing British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners.

Morgan, wrote Daily Mail reporter Frances Hardy, “ruminate[d] merrily” about things he imagined doing to his professional enemies, including Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, writer A.A. Gill and editor Ian Hislop.

“So the real question is, if I had a gun with just two bullets, who would I shoot?” Morgan said during the May 2006 interview.

“In the end,” wrote Hardy, “he can’t choose between them, so he opts for a clean shot to take out Hislop and a ricocheting hit to mortally wound both Clarkson and Gill.”

In 2004 Morgan penned an op-ed for the Evening Standard headlined “I can’t be liberal on burglars,” in which he said he said a series of home invasions and robberies at his home made him wish for a gun. Britain, which had banned all guns, had seen a rash of break-in burglaries, one of which took the life of financier John Monckton.

    You have to take the Progressive agenda when you are in the entertainment business. Your done if you are right of center.

    Morgan is basically a man without a country or a conscience. Cut from the same cloth as Lance Armstrong — your basic amoral, self-promoting media prostitute whose only apparent loves are the sound of his own voice and a bank account. I don’t care about his bank account, but his voice irritates me and I’m glad that T. Nugent said what he said to him. Nugent probably scrared the $hit out of him. Not because Nugent owns guns but because Nugent owns his own soul.

    I wonder what Morgan’s real dirty little secrets are. People like him typically have some weird addiction or criminal obsession like pedophilia or child porn. Someone should manufacture, er, dig a little deeper into his life.

    So I slowed down enough to read the side of a box of Remington Magnum Buckshot 00 today.

    Want to talk about assault rifle?

    (1) ONE that is one or wun round of 12 gauge, 3″, 00 buckshot has (15) FIFTEEN .33 sized pellets.

    An AR-15 shoots 5.56 or .223 rounds – - .33 – .223 = .107 LARGER round for 00 buck. And there’s 15 of them in each round!

    There isn’t an assault rifle capable of firing 15 rounds of ammunition as fast.

    One more progressive who believes they are above everyone else so their rants are for “the great unwashed” and not themselves. I’d LOVE to see one of his guests pull these quotes out.

    I bet Piss or Pus or Puss or whatever the hell his name is was picked on mercilessly when he was a kid, which was most likely a result of his own miserable behavior. I can’t imagine him ever fighting back… just like most leftists. As adults, they’re consumed with self-loathing they project on anyone who actually has guts and is self reliant. They’re like the wormy and sneaky Saul Alinsky or Bill Ayers, wannabe little tyrants with huge chips on their shoulders and cold, empty souls.
