Piers Morgan Argues Guns Are The Same Thing As Big Macs

It is often believed that smarmy British twit Piers Morgan was fired from CNN because his condescending views on gun control were deeply offensive to Americans, but I have another theory: I think he was shit-canned because his anti-gun rants were so insane the left feared he would hurt their cause and make them all look like fools. Well, bigger fools. I present exhibit A in my theory which has Morgan arguing that guns are the exact same thing as Big Macs. Not Mac-10’s, hamburgers.

Over the weekend a church in Florida posted a sign letting maniacs know they are not a soft-target, which of course sent Morgan into a self-righteous tizzy.

That prompted an argument with conservative writer Ben Shapiro, which you can observe below:

This really is the single dumbest gun analogy of all time. It beats comparing firearms to cars, abortion, or anything else liberals like to throw in by a mile. Obesity is not instantly fatal like getting shot, nor are people suddenly overweight from a onetime Big Mac binge. Mad men don’t run into churches and make people eat Big Macs until they get fat and die from heart disease. There is no Constitutional right to keep and bear Big Macs, Whoppers, or Baconators.

Nobody is trying to argue that the only thing that stops obesity is eating more unhealthy food because that is preposterous. The only thing ridiculous about the statement “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” is thinking that it is untrue as Morgan believes. When a lunatic opens fire on a group of innocent people one of two things stops him: the killer runs out of ammo or somebody shoots his crazy ass.

What Morgan is saying is that in a mass shooting situation armed good guys are useless to stop the killing so law-abiding people might as well disarm. I guess he thinks his smug sense of self-importance is all that is really needed to survive a shooting.
