Piers Morgan Shocked By
‘UnbelievablePower’ After
Firing Assault Rifles At
Texas Gun Range

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

President Obama recently proved that he shoots skeet, and now Piers Morgan can say he’s shot an AR-15. Morgan traveled to Texas today to find out what it’s 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 wasn’t perfect, but as Morgan said, “once I got the hang of it and began pressing the trigger faster and faster, it was

The .223 rifle is NOT an unbelievable power. To an effeminate Englishman, any rifle would be "unbelievable."

How often has Piers Morgan shot a rifle, or has he ever shot a rifle before? If he has ever shot a rifle was it other than a 22 at Coney Island?

I have to assume the range owner had the special paperwork and license to own a fully automatic AR-15. However IF Morgan broke ANY gun laws with this stunt, by all means prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

Inherent to the question of ´why would any civilian want one of these,´ is the assumption that sooner or later that civilian will commit a crime and therefore should be denied the ability to legally own whatever it is the leftist is talking about. Of course for toads like Morgan everyone IS guilty until they prove they are innocent, a byproduct of being a subject under the thumb of some halfarsed King. Over here we used to have a thing called personal responsibility and then if you committed a crime, you did the time. No excuses. Now it is all pre-crime, Orwell world.

It is not legal to buy full auto trigger parts or an drop-in auto sear unless it´s registered (prior to 1986), and you go through a 6-month background check, wait and pay about $10,000+ for the sear alone.

Jeremy Alceide of Tactical Forearms in Katy is a goofus. "Dremel" the lower receiver? Are you kidding me?

Again another lie. The only guns used at Sandy Hook school were the 4 handguns. The AR15 was found in the car, yet the media perpetuates the lie.

Unbelievable power from an AR-15? Try my Garand or M1A some time.

Oh wait, that´s right. They were stolen. I no longer have them, or any other firearm. No ammo either.

An AR-15, is the civilian, semi-automatic version, of he mliitary M-16. An AR-15 is essentially a high capacity ugly varmit rifle.

Hey Piers: Try shooting a run-of-the-mill 30-06, bolt action, hunting rifle. In your T-sshirt. Then you will better understand power.

The Bushmaster was reported to be found in the vehicle-------handguns inside, but yet we read just the opposite on the Sandy Hook shootings.

Why did Feinstein exempt Congress and Gov´t employees in her proposed bill-----just as many crazies in Congress and Government positions as in the non-governmental positions.

I wish they had him on video firing some semi-auto "Fudd" guns in .30-06, .308 caliber.

Better yet, They should have given him a (bolt-action) Mosin-Nagant carbine to shoot, belching fire and likely having Piers crying "no mas" and rubbing his shoulder after five rounds downrange.

Perhaps then he would learn the AR-15 isn´t particularly more power than most rifles, and he would also, perhaps, have an understanding as to why it is the most popular centerfire semi-auto rifle in the country.

Unfortunately, many who would foist these usurpations upon us have never owned or fired a rifle. They have as much validity in determining who "should" and who "needs" a particular firearm as a person who has only rode a horse would have in determining what automobiles are best for everyone else.

#´s 10, 11, 12, I recently had the chance to shoot a .50 revolver.
Now THAT had some kick, but I gotta tell you, years back I shot a .357; old frame, no force mitigation and that had WAY more than the new frames.
Was very very surprised.
#7, you too, huh? Seems to be a real rash of that going on lately........

Can somebody in Connecticut get the police report on the school shooting? It should be available to the public. I read that the the killer used three hand guns and that he had a semi automatic rifle that was left in his vehicle.

Now that you know how to use it, I suppose we should ban you from any and all school campuses. Afterall, the mere shooting of such a "powerful weapon" makes everyone who does it an official deranged nutcase. In Pier´s case, he is already an official deranged nutcase so why did they let a certifiable nutcase even shoot such a weapon?

- As promised on Monday, the Justice Department today released its new criteria for inmates who want their prison sentences reduced. Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole announced six "stringent standards" the department will consider when reviewing and expediting clemency applications from federal inmates. He also replaced the Bush administration appointee who heads DOJ´s Pardons office. Under the new initiative, DOJ will prioritize clemency applications from inmates who meet all of the following requirements:-- They are currently serving time in a federal prison and likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today;

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- A Fort Carson commander who wasn´t allowed to leave for Afghanistan with his troops last month was suspended over allegations that he was insensitive to victims of sexual assault and discrimination, a newspaper reported Tuesday. The details were reported in The Gazette (http://bit.ly/1k3YHKd) based on a 361-page investigative report it obtained under the Federal Freedom of Information Act. It provided the first account the Army has released about the suspension of Col. Brian Pearl and offers a view into how sensitive the issue of sexual assault has become for the Army. It says Pearl was suspended after three

Construction workers at companies doing work for the federal government are paid as much as three times what their peers outside of government get for the same work, a Washington Examiner review of federal statistics found. Pipefitters in Laredo, Texas, for example, can usually expect to make around $11.47 hourly, but if working on a federal contract, they must be paid at least $36.49, plus benefits. Window installers in New York City make $18.87 an hour in the market -- that´s the median salary, including industry veterans -- yet the government requires those doing that work for it in the

TOKYO — President Obama stepped off Air Force One in Japan apparently with an appetite for sushi. After a quick refresh at the Hotel Okura near the U.S. Embassy, Obama joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for dinner at a tiny sushi shop in the city’s Ginza neighborhood. They were joined by U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the White House said. The restaurant — Sukiyabashi Jiro — has earned a rare three-star Michelin rating. Its owner and master chef, 89-year-old Jiro Ono, was featured in the 2011 documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” Many regard

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
