Piers Morgan exposes Dana Loesch’s lack of gun knowledge by making up models, calibers, deleting

Dana Loesch’s calling out of CNN’s “real journalist” Piers Morgan over his error in categorizing the caliber of the Bushmaster rifle used in the Sandy Hook massacre might seem petty, aside from two reasons. First, Morgan believes he’s fully qualified to determine what weapons American citizens should and should not be allowed to own. Second, he himself wastes no opportunity to call out his detractors on their spelling errors, like so:

Worth the read. Using "journalists" ignorance about firearms and the actual laws is a good way to discredit them.

There was no rifle used in the event.

That is what I thought to. The AR was found in the psycho’s car.... Not used in the school. We will never get the truth.

The interesting fact is that the big lie has in fact prevailed. It was told loud enough and long enough and has become true.

That fact is revealed by the details of big lie being challenged rather than rejecting the whole. There is no caliber of a rifle not used to murder kiddies

Never knew that about Savile - looked it up, and was horrified. What a creepy character.

I guess Piers Morgan needed to speak to an idiot after Ben Shapiro destroyed him in a face to face interview..

Shapiro tells him "Stop standing on the graves of the dead children"

Way misleading headline. Loesch exposed Morgan’s ignorance, not the other way round.

——what was used???-——

It is my understanding that the weapons used were two 9 mm pistols. (semi auto of course, not muzzle loaders or revolvers) I will accept the fact the calibers might actually be different.

A rifle was found in the shooter’s car, but it was not fired.

And because the perp is dead, there will be no criminal trial in which to present evidence and the facts of the case.

Yes. I think they were trying for satire, but failed. I cannot change headlines on freerepublic. Rules, you know.

I take that as sarcasm when the end of the sentence reads, “...by making up models, calibers, and deleting tweets.”

To CNN/Piers Morgan Tonight:

I find the behavior and demeanor of Piers Morgan despicable. Piers Morgan is a representative of CNN. As such he has seriously damaged the image and credibility of CNN (which most believe is nill already) with his crass, repugnant, rude behavior. Further, Mr. Morgan is a British subject. As such he and the “Crown” should remember the severe ASS KICKING they suffered in our last little dust up. As a serf of the Crown, Mr. Morgan should also be reminded that he HAS NO STANDING WHATSOEVER to pontificate his views of Our Constitutional rights. Piers Morgan should also be reminded that not only were his Redcoats kicked out of America by a rag tag bunch of American Patriots with nothing more than muskets his homeland also is a vanquished nation reduced to having their Harrier jets sold off on Ebay and their political decisions made for them by foreigners in Brussels, This unfortunate calamity might not have occurred if his countrymen had a smidgen of the brilliance exhibited by our founding fathers when they wrote the Second Amendment to our Constitution.
I suggest that you transfer Piers to the Havana Bureau where he will be right at home on his knees kissing the ass of another anti-gun advocate, Fidel Castro.

Have a blessed day and rest assured I will look elsewhere for what is supposed to serve as “News” or a reasoned discussion of issues today.

I know that the shotgun was found in his trunk. There is security video of that being taken out of the trunk but nothing else.

And then there is this police scanner timeline:

The pistols, and yes I know, nothing has been proven.

I find it interesting that the youth would have been able to conceal a rifle while gaining access to the school. Not impossible, but much easier to conceal a couple of semi auto pistols.

I thought much the same but there was info released a couple of days ago that the long gun found in the car was a shotgun. Not the Bushmaster.

Why conceal it??? He parked his car within 10 feet of the door and was in the school in a matter of seconds. He could have had a howitzer in full view and no one could have stopped him in that short of period of time.

According to the ME’s presser...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsgZnLTaeKA

...he used “long gun” AR-15 to do all the killings. They found another long gun in the trunk. Look at the shells being racked-out; looks like 12ga.

This article says he had the AR-15 and 2 handguns w/ him, and a shotgun was found in the car:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/16/at-least-26-dead-in-shooting-at-connecticut-school/

and

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/medical-examiner-sandy-hook-victims-died-multiple-gunshot-211722237.html

Then, this about 4 handguns etc (watch thru to end):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ju_NllT1iDo

Here’s the vid of the long gun (12ga) in the mother’s car’s trunk:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLrxSgkqJQc

Still vids of 1-2 other “shooters” avail on YT; that story disappeared wo/ explanation.

Worst/most confusing reporting I’ve seen/read since first 3-4hrs of 9-11-01.

I still don’t know what *actually* happened...
