CNN’s Piers Morgan has found a new favorite conservative to crucify in his vendetta against the Second Amendment – political pundit and talk show host Dana Loesch.
Morgan used one of his favorite soap boxes – Twitter – to blast Loesch for proudly showing off a picture of her AR-15 assault weapon on her personal account. He even nicknamed her “Mrs. Lanza” in one tweet, a clear reference to the mother of the perpetrator in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings last December.
Loesch, a licensed gun owner in the state of Missouri, had posted on Twitter about how she and a group of friends visited a local shooting range earlier in the day for sport.
The tête-à-tête became even more heated when Loesch called out Morgan for alleging that any law-abiding American citizen who owns an assault weapon “is involved in shooting up schools.”
Like the sport she is, Loesch was able to laugh it off, and even tweeted about how amused she and her friends were by Morgan’s “guntrums.”
This is just the latest of Morgan’s anti-gun rights stunts, which include berating gun advocates and mocking their pocket constitutions on his CNN show and calling NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre ”America’s most dangerous man.” Morgan had also picked on Loesch back in February, saying that she and fellow talk show host Scottie Hughes make him “sick” for opposing the president’s gun control proposals.
No wonder even the British don’t want him to return to the Motherland!
