You can’t have a Piers Morgan gun-control segment without the essential components:

1) Pleas to “let me finish.”

2) Ample crosstalk and moments of joyful incomprehensibility that have to drive transcription services batty.

3) Absurdities like whether the Second Amendment allows you to own a tank, allegations that a spoon could be a lethal weapon, and this: “Where do you draw the line at preventing the deaths of children, Piers?,” which came courtesy of Dana Loesch in a debate from last night.

4) Plenty of Internet pass-around.

There you have it.
