It’s probably not quite true that gun-control advocate Piers Morgan has been “standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook,” as Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro put it. It’s more correct to say that the cheeky Brit has been standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook, jumping up and down, and stamping his foot. I can say nothing else about a man who repeatedly combines the Newtown tragedy with lies, misconceptions, and deceptions to push a political agenda. What am I talking about? Well, here’s a top 10 list.
Walmart and the 100-round magazine
Morgan wrote in the Daily Mail, “I can saunter into Walmart — America’s version of Tesco — and help myself to an armful of … magazines that can carry up to 100 bullets at a time.” Perhaps he could.
But he can’t.
Walmart doesn’t carry a 100-round magazine. I’ve never seen such an item at the store, and a search for it at their website came up empty. But, hey, Morgan probably wouldn’t be caught dead in a Walmart, and I’m sure his Harrods-set friends told him the mag was there.
Aurora and the AR-15
One of Morgan’s patent arguments is that the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle was used to inflict the carnage in all our recent massacres, including Aurora, Colorado.
Aurora maniac James Holmes first used a shotgun in his attack, and it appears that most of the wounds he inflicted were made with it.
Banning AR-15s can stop crazies from committing massacres
As the aforementioned indicates, this is untrue. Will a mentally unhinged person say, “I was going to shoot up a school, but this shotgun here just ain’t my style. I’m gonna’ play golf instead”? Not only is a shotgun far more effective in close-quarters attacks on soft targets, but an unbalanced person will grab whatever he can find that serves his ends.
The same appears true of unbalanced journalists.
