Piers Morgan ‘Doesn’t Even Know What Amendment the Second Is’

BELLEVUE, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- CNN's bombastic anti-gun talk host Piers Morgan demonstrated to the entire nation during an interview on CBS that he doesn't even know which Constitutional amendment protects the right to keep and bear arms, so he should not take himself seriously about guns because nobody else does, either, said Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation.

On CBS This Morning, Morgan stated, “I have no problem, in a country with so many guns in circulation, with a family exercising their First Amendment (sic) right to defend their families with a handgun at home.”

“Morgan is out hawking his new book Shooting Straight' and yet he has been missing the target consistently,” Gottlieb said. “He doesn't even know that it's the Second Amendment, not the First, which affirms and protects the right to keep and bear arms.

“The First Amendment – and Morgan should know this – protects the right of free speech and the press,” he observed. “Maybe Morgan supports the right to talk about guns, but he just doesn't support the right to own one.”

During his CBS appearance, Morgan referred to his heated exchange Monday evening, on his own show, with Gottlieb. The veteran gun rights advocate noted that, despite Morgan's chronic low ratings, “I can't remember the last time I did a show that brought us so many new members or raise so much money in contributions as this one did.”

“The most amusing part of that is the fact that the people we've spoken with did not actually watch Morgan's program.” he added. “They saw the debate on the Internet, and called us to join and make donations.

“You simply have to love Piers Morgan,” Gottlieb concluded. “Trying to have a rational conversation with him about guns is like filming a recruiting commercial for the gun rights movement.”

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation's oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. In addition to the landmark McDonald v. Chicago Supreme Court Case, SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, CT; New Orleans; Chicago and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers and numerous amicus briefs holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.

    The man has no clue on what he is talking about.

    That last interview he gave, he talked about no country in Europe having anything like our Second Amendment.

    Yes that is why we are the USA not some European country that Morgan and Obama want us to be ‘fundamentally transformed’ into.

    Piers Morgan is an enemy of America, and ICE should have already arrested him for breaking his Oath of Citizenship.

    ICE you are traitorous for not doing your damned job. Be American.

    If the Obama administration won’t deport the brainwashed windbag, I’ll be glad to remove him personally.

    He’s right. Piers Morgan is the direct reason I joined GOA for the first time and converted my yearly membership in the NRA to a Lifetime Member status. He’s also the reason why I no longer watch CNN.

    I know he inspired me.

    He shouldn’t have a problem with it, since he is not American.
