Posted on 02/04/2013 9:24:05 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
President Obama recently proved that he shoots skeet, and now Piers Morgan can say hes shot an AR-15. Morgan traveled to Texas today to find out what its like to shoot the gun used in the last five mass shootings in America, including Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Morgan interviewed the owner of a Houston gun range, as he took his turns firing various version of the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle with a 30-round magazine. His aim wasnt perfect, but as Morgan said, once I got the hang of it and began pressing the trigger faster and faster, it was just firing very, very fast.
He proceeded to shoot an AR-15 that had been modified from semi-automatic to fully automatic, a procedure that is illegal, but as the range owner explained, fairly easy for individuals to do with parts that can be purchased legally. Morgan said it felt unbelievably powerful.(continued)

Try a 30.06
How could y’all let him out of Houston without a trip to the woodshed? He was right there. ;p
And someone wants to put females in combat?
I doubt that anyone in Texas wanted to get their hands that dirty.
And I will bet you that within due time, little piers has him one of these bad boys.
Well in their defense, Piers Morgan could have applied for the British Military. My distant Irish RAF cousin is probably going to drop a bomb on my head for saying that too.
Uh....in Sandy Hook, wasn’t the rifle left in the trunk?
I’d like to see the wimp shoot my slug gun (12 ga). Even though I tend to think of recoil as a nice massage, that one even makes me wince a little bit.
You took the description right out of my oral cavity.
No, debunked, many times.
Someone take him out with an M-1 Garand, if he can lift it. Have him run a clip through that.
Then hand him a bolt .300 Winchester or Weatherby Magnum and let him shoot, say, 10 rounds out of that.
No hearing protection either.
That’ll put a little “incredible powerful” on him.
See how his “assault weapon”/very powerful thinking sits with that.
If Nancy-boy Piers thinks an AR-15 has "unbelievable power" then that just shows how out of touch he is with real firearms. I own an AR-15 and I've shot everything up to and including a Barrett M82A1. One of the reasons I like my 5.56 AR is that it is so mild mannered and fun to shoot.
Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan, actually.
Seems to me that our fine soldiers of WWII did quite a bit of damage pulling the trigger as fast as they could with a M1 Garand and they only had eight round clips. What is the lefts obsession with magazine capacity? Even a novice can drop a empty mag and replace it in a couple of seconds. When someone goes off their bean and decides to kill one thirty round mag or three 10 round mags is only seconds. They wont be happy until they have us casting musket balls and loading flintlocks!
BTW...a Garand IS a battle rifle; made specifically for the military and for the battlefield.
See what he thinks of that and see how many rounds he can rip off with that little toy.
Shuda loaned him my friend’s .378 Weatherby, iffn the lil’ Poofter wants power and recoil in a ‘sporting’ gun.
He really would have enjoyed playing sniper and firing it from the prone position.
Poor thought process by the hosts at the range.
Should have started him off with a 30.06 and point out that this was standard GI Issue.
Then, have his shoot the AR, to see how mild it really is.
When he comes up with his “unbelievable” comment, then tell him he can shoot the .50 cal. if he wants a frame of reference that makes the 30.06 ‘believable’.
I’d rather he keep using that versus his birth name (Piers Stefan O’Meara).
Now we know that he’s so weak, a loud cough will scare him to death.
No, it was the one putting .223 ammo in all the bodies for the coroner to find. That’s been debunked so many times I can’t believe there are fools still peddling that line.
I’ve got a .338 he’d enjoy. Nothing like scope bite.
What a waste of 50 BMG!
Really? So the "range owner" admitted to being a felon as he lied about it being "fairly easy" to convert an AR to auto fire?
Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan, actually.
Or how about...
Piers Stefan Pog-mo-thoin
Yeah, I’d have saddled him up with the 30.06 to start with. And get him to hold it like Obama does in that picture the White Hut has been circulating. Morgan could use a little medical leave.
Let him try this one.
They are unbelievably powerful. You don’t even have to fire them to kill people.
The media doesn’t even try to look objective anymore.
Or just give him an old 8mm Mauser.
Or civilize him with a Krag.
As fast as he can pull the trigger until it goes ping.
Now here is a real man and his rifle:
Nope, that was an initial erroneous report. The coroner said that all the victims were shot with 5.56mm rounds. He did have two pistols on him (I think) but apparently never used them, unless he used one to off himself.
“Id like to see the wimp shoot my slug gun (12 ga).”
I wanted to see the sphincter fire the pistol gripped 12 ga. pump. That would have been funny.
Piers Morgan reinvents himself
Morgan exited amid scandal because he’d been duped into publishing faked photos of British troops urinating on Iraqi detainees. His Fleet Street rivals gleefully called it “Wee-gate.”
“What the hell am I going to do now?” he asked himself.
He gathered up his mates and drowned his sorrows in liberal doses of alcohol. He collected a healthy severance and a fat advance for his tell-all “diaries.” He told anyone who would listen it would take him five years slaving away as a newspaper editor to make that much money.
And then he set about reinventing Piers Morgan.
Now, at age 45, Morgan is again being cast as the boy wonder. Tonight, he takes over CNN’s 9 p.m. time slot, vacated in December by Larry King.
The hyperbolic Oprah Winfrey, his first guest on “Piers Morgan Tonight,” said their taped chat was her toughest interview in 20 years. “We all just went, ‘Woo, what was that?’ I’m not kidding. I was surprised,” she told reporters at a red carpet event for the launch of her new network, OWN.
“Of course I’m a little apprehensive,” Morgan said of his show’s debut. “But the adrenalin’s flowing.” He said he’s confident but added, “We’ll all be watching the numbers.”
If you, like many Americans, are asking “Who is this guy?” you’re about to find out.
“He’s a newspaper guy from central casting,” said Robert Thompson, who teaches courses in media and pop culture at Syracuse University. “What he was doing in newspapers is something that translates nicely into our current multimedia culture. He’s got a personality for television.”
Piers Stefan O’Meara was born in Sussex, England, in 1965, the oldest of four children. His father died when he was very young, and he took his stepfather’s last name, Pughe-Morgan. Later, he shortened it to Morgan because it made for a better byline.
This self promotion drives his ratings up and he laughs all the way to the bank. Deny him his attention and starve the beast.
You know he will. :)
That is what I was wondering about. Easy? Maybe if you are a machinist.
Also I doubt the “range owner” would admit owning such an illegal conversion to pussbag publicity whore as the prissy limey.
I recall a DI at the gun range in the late 60’s putting an M16 on his chin to show that the recoil of the new technology had been greatly reduced.
I attended a private boarding school in eastern PA, and our habitual practice for Sunday mornings was to skip out and roam the countryside. In one of these sojourns, we came across a couple of old guys at some kind of home made firing range, and they had a WWI vintage Springfield, as I remember it. We watched them fire it, and what impressed me was that it sounded like a cannon more than a gun. Just a huge noise. Boy, those were the days, eh?
When are we gonna stop treating people like piers with respect? He is NOT there to learn or debate. He is there to create and spread propaganda. This is what frustrates me with the current group of conservative talking heads and twitter nuts: they don’t recognize the Alinsky style tactics by piers and his ilk, and by now they should! Brietbart understood them and could hear the dog whistle, and so many still can’t. Example: on ALL of the interviews he as done since Sandy Hook, piers keeps saying “Who needs a weapon that can fire a hundred rounds in a minute? Who needs an AR-15?” Notice that he REPEATS this constantly, never accepting a logical answer or addressing the guests’ response. He doesn’t care about logic or rationale; he knows that if he keeps repeating a catchy phrase, THAT is what will stick in peoples’ minds, not the logical answer. Quit playing his game conservatives.
Why do FReepers persist in this outright lie. It makes us look stupid. The gun left in the trunk was a shotgun. Medical examiner confirmed all victims shot with the bushmaster. The only time the guy fired his handgun was when he shot himself.
Even so, the AR15 is not an extraordinary powerful firearm. All this BS is simply put out there to fool the brain dead masses.
BTW, Bozo did not prove he shoots skeet. The photo released was obviously photo shopped, it is in an area that is nowhere near the skeet range at Camp David.
“Uh....in Sandy Hook, wasnt the rifle left in the trunk?”
No. The murders were done with the .223, the suicide with one of the handguns. What was seen being removed from the trunk was (IIRC) a Saiga shotgun.
Before my cousin went back to Red Cloud in Sokor, he let me use his Mossburg 10 g, and my shoulder was throbbing the next day.
The man’s a complete tool. But he is the master at maximum trolling - facts don’t matter, only the attention (and the resulting dollars).
I had the opportunity to put a few rounds through a Garand once many years ago. Outstanding weapon - solid, efficient, dangerous. Still, my all time favorite has to the the old L1A1 SLR (Self Loading Rifle). Otherwise known to non Brits/Aussies as the FN FAL. Hold her just right, or she will punish you. Saw a recruit get a black eye once from the rear sight because she didn’t pull the stock into her shoulder. I like to see Piers fire 20 rounds rapid from the standing position with one of them.
