Piers Morgan came under fire from certain conservatives after entertaining gun-rights advocate, radio host and deport-Morgan champion Alex Jones on his nightly show. Too extreme, some critics said — Morgan is just trying to tar rational conservatives by showcasing an extreme one.
Similar charges could surface after last night, when Morgan talked guns — and beyond — with Scottie Hughes of the Tea Party News Network and radio host Dana Loesch. Over several minutes of argument, Morgan asked whether the Second Amendment entitles them to a tank. “If it falls under the definition of firearms,” responded Loesch, who is/was a CNN contributor. Hughes insisted she didn’t want a tank but asserted the right to one. The landmark 2008 Supreme Court decision in District of Columbia v. Heller asserted that authorities could impose restrictions on Second Amendment rights.
