Defunct CNN host Piers Morgan is known for his anti-gun comments, and in the immediate aftermath of the latest Ft. Hood shooting, he couldn’t resist sending out a message on Twitter going after firearms.

'If only there'd been a good guy with a gun...' - such
crap. This #FortHood soldier/shooter WAS
a good guy. Until he turned bad, with a gun.

@piersmorgan Piers Morgan

“‘If only there’d been a good guy with a gun…’ – such crap,” Morgan tweeted, attacking the popular pro-gun argument that the key to stopping gun violence is arming more people who can act as a deterrent. “This #FortHood soldier/shooter WAS a good guy. Until he turned bad, with a gun.”

On Friday, Morgan ended his CNN show by also taking a shot at guns.

“And also I want to thank you all for watching, even those who implacably disagreed with me, or just found my funny accent annoying,” he said. “Regular viewers will know that the issue of gun control has been a consistent and often very controversial part of this show. And I want to say something more about that before I bow out.”

“The vast majority of Americans I met are decent, hardworking, thoroughly dependable people. As my brother, a British army colonel says, you always want an American next to you in the trench when the going gets tough,” Morgan continued....

"Until he turned bad, with a gun."

He says it as if it's the gun's fault.

He will only be deported when advertisers realize advertising association with Morgan is toxic to their profits.

Guns break laws, not people. But luckily guns can’t buy guns illegally, so we only need a law telling people not to do it.

Don’t you know that guns are implanted with mind control chips that can turn anyone into a vicious, rabid killer?

"WAS" means not anymore. So what was needed? A good guy with a gun.

So all soldiers (even the tiny number of mass murdering ones) are “good guys” right up until the moment they suddenly turn into mass murderers?

Morgan should have a wider audience to spread his ideas. Perhaps his own show. Awww. Too soon?

The Brits probably wouldn't take him back.

It would be pretty funny to see him live out his life in the transit lounge at Heathrow.

P*ss Morgan said in his CNN parting shot that guns belong only in the hands of police and military, and that civilians should not be allowed to own firearms at all.

Square that logic with this incident, you stinking Limey!

Obama was once a good guy with guns, then he started running guns into the hands of Mexican Drug cartels. The death toll is still mounting.

Is Piers Moron still here?

I'll wager he's on unemployment compensation and food stamps.

He's of half-Irish descent and still a British citizen, but no one wants him back over there in the auld country....and no one wants him here, either.

He's a man without a country, like in the book of the same name.

I'll also bet he's already signed on to ObamaKare under his real name, Piers O'Meara.

The Blarney Stone kisses him, he's such a BS'er.

He was fine with a gun until the government docs put him on SSRI medications. Damn near every mass shooter has been found to be on SSRI medications. Piers is an anti-gun dolt who can't see beyond his own agenda.

Defunct CNN host Piers Morgan....

So he’s not even on the air anymore, but “The Blaze” thinks it’s important to give the little jerk attention for his stupid comment?
