Whenever the subject of guns and gun control comes up, anti-gun liberals like CNN's Piers Morgan can always be counted on to take things too far. While in a Twitter debate over an Iowa law that allows the legally blind to own guns, Morgan suggested having blind people shoot at conservative pundits Dana Loesch and Ben Ferguson, Mediaite reported Thursday.
"An idea @Dloesch @benfergusonshow > you guys stand at the end of a range and I'll get 100 blind people to fire away at targets around you," he tweeted.
One person thought Morgan's idea was terrific.
"Great Idea Piers. I want to SEE this. We know that #blind people fire by using direction only," tweeted "Whitney Houston."
A reader at Mediaite agreed.
"Where can I make a donation to help the blind people buy guns to shoot conservative pundits and can they include Rush and Hannity," the reader commented.
One person identifying himself as an eye physician said that being legally blind is common.
"Black blind isn't. They aren't close to the same functionally," tweeted "Joe Friday."
Time and again Dana Loesch asked Morgan to provide statistics to back up his claim, but Morgan ignored her.
"ARM THE BLIND!!!! > RT @DLoesch It's simple, @piersmorgan . You could end this now. Just show us gun crime stats from the blind. Waiting," Morgan tweeted.
It's not the first time anti-gun liberals have called for gun rights supporters to be shot.
In January, Daily Beast sports writer Buzz Bissinger suggested Morgan shoot Alex Jones with a semiautomatic rifle, causing fellow liberals Gloria Allred and Abby Huffman.
“I don’t care what the justification is that you’re allowed in this country to own a semi-automatic weapon – much less a handgun. But what do you need a semi-automatic weapon for? The only reason I think you’d need it is, Piers, challenge Alex Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi-automatic that you got legally and pop him,” he said.
Morgan said he would borrow his brother's uniform.
A Des Moines columnist called for the death of gun owners and later claimed it was satire.
A Texas Democratic Party official called for shooting members of the NRA on Facebook and Twitter.
"Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?" he tweeted.
After calling for NRA members to be shot, he then called them domestic terrorists and said they "need to [be] wiped off the face of the earth."
Actress Marg Helgenberger issued a tweet saying that "one can only hope" members of the NRA get shot, while rank-and-file liberals followed like lemmings, calling for the murder of those who support the right to keep and bear arms.
