Piers Morgan Lambastes 'Gutless' Senate 'Cowards for Not Passing Gun Control
News Busters ^ | April 17, 2013 | 18:17 | Matt Hadro

After the Toomey-Manchin gun bill failed in the Senate on Wednesday, CNN's Piers Morgan let loose on Twitter at President Obama and "cowards" in the Senate who didn't "give a stuff" about the Newtown families.

"How many schoolchildren have to be murdered next time for Washington to do anything? 50, 100, 1000? Name the number, you cowards. @NRA" he ranted. Morgan didn't take it easy on the President, either: "President Obama strong on guns rhetoric again now - but truth is, he's failed the Newtown families too. Got nothing done re gun control #CNN".

Of course, Morgan has reason to be upset given that he's been CNN's resident gun control activist for four months. Since the Newtown shooting, he's incessantly called for gun control while belittling and shaming gun rights advocates and the NRA.

Here are some more of his tweets from Wednesday afternoon:

"20 poor little children blown to pieces at school - and America's politicians do NOTHING. Absolutely shameful. #NewtownBetrayed"

"Sandy Hook father talking now on CNN. My heart aches for him, my rage festers. These Senators have disgraced democracy. #NewtownBetrayed"

"Imagine those Newtown family members at the Senate today - suddenly realising their lawmakers don't give a stuff about their dead children."

"The U.S. senate just voted against expanding background checks for gun sales. What a pathetic, gutless bunch of cowards. #NewtownBetrayed"

I think the Senators would gladly do something, if something could be done that would actually help solve the problem. This was just a dog and pony show, and I applaud the senate for finally saying, “enough!”.

The media pummeled, pummeled, pummeled but liberty prevailed...for now. On to the next battle! With less people watching Piers!

One of these days Piers will find himself with a not so understanding government and then we’ll see about that deportation business again.

I can understand the Sandy Hook families allowing themselves to be used. But not for much longer. Sorry, but far more than 20 have died defending the Constitution that Morgan, Obama, Reid and their progressive fellow travelers want to destroy.

In PM’s case, that should be spelled with an ‘a’.

As I see it, forty-six brave Senators stood up to the main street media and supported our constitution. Furthermore, their actions may have a far reaching effect in returning America to its’ principles rather than a series of public polls on what to do. Do something real to control violence instead of a symbolic act designed to further erode Second Amendment Rights. Like many Americans I pray for the parents of the Sandy Hook victims, but I also pray for the 55 million innocents killed for convenience. Have guns ever killed 55 million innocents? Perhaps our priorities are seriously messed up.

Cnn is the disgrace for allowing an non American Citizen the air time to chastise our Government!
Piers Morgan is a coward and needs to be shipped to his home country and he can spout all he wants! But not on Our soil!
I don’t need a limey that gets paid a million bucks to rundown my Country!
Take heed CNN your demise is in the air!
I call on all Americans to Boycott The Communist News Network!

I am so sick of being told I don’t care about the Newtown kids.

I care about them. I wish someone around that school was carrying a gun.

What I don’t care for is Obama holding up a bloody baby to guilt the country into voting his way.

Ef Obama.

On the head. They got called out for using a tragedy and their families to promote their agenda to disarm citizens when they didnt give a damn about them. With all the liberal loonies running around we need them to protect us from their lunacy.

Voting to satisfy the dangerous, savage Left is gutless. Voting against them takes courage.

He said he’d leave the US if we did not obey his British demandments. Bye, bye Peirs. It’s too dangerous here for you.

Go back to Britain, Piers you silk-bloomered sissy.

Background checks are a great idea. Let’s start with Obomba.
