Gun hater Piers Morgan traveled to Houston, Texas to find out how it feels to shoot the gun “used in the last five mass shootings in America”.
Morgan interviewed the owner of a Houston gun range, where he was instructed how to fire an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle with a 30-round magazine.
The CNN hosts aim wasn’t perfect, but Morgan said, “Once I got the hang of it and began pressing the trigger faster and faster, it was just firing very, very fast.”
Piers Morgan also sat down with rocker and gun enthusiast Ted Nugent to discuss possible gun control.
Nugent asked to see Piers Morgan’s “machine gun smile”.
Piers said he can’t deny that shooting the guns wasn’t an “exciting experience” and said the people of Texas were “lovely people”.
Morgan asked Nugent to explain why Americans need the AR-15 assault rifle. Nugent said there are millions of Americans who own guns and have “never caused a problem, never had an accident and will never commit a crime”.
Piers brought up suicides by guns, prompting Nugent to ask, “Do you care about murders? Or do you only care about about murders with guns?”
Morgan answered, “I care about all death.”
“I don’t think you do,” Nugent replied. “I think you care about guns. You’re obsessed with guns.”
Nugent blasted President Barack Obama’s proposals on gun control, saying he doesn’t agree with the president on any of his gun control plans.
He also said he didn’t agree with universal background checks and stated that more guns actually mean less violence. He counted off several places with the strictest gun laws and horribly high violent crime rates, including Chicago and Mexico.
