Gun Expert Piers Morgan: I Support First Amendment Right to Defend One’s Self With a Gun

BY:

CNN host and noted gun control supporter Piers Morgan got his constitutional amendments mixed during an interview on CBS This Morning Tuesday promoting his new book.

Morgan announced himself a supporter of the First Amendment right of Americans to defend themselves with a handgun in their home, but it's the Second Amendment granting the right to bear arms.

Morgan has been a fierce advocate for gun control on his CNN show Piers Morgan Live over the past year, getting in a shouting match with the founder of Guns Save Lives Day Alan Gottlieb as recently as Monday night:

NORAH O'DONNELL: You were talking about banning guns. We have the Second Amendment here in America, and there are more than 100 million gun owners in this country. It is is a right that many Americans enjoy and use safely.

PIERS MORGAN: I have no problem in a country with so many guns in circulation with a family exercising their First Amendment right to defend their families with a handgun at home. But nobody can tell me that any civilian in America needs a military-style assault weapon or a magazine which has 30 to 100 bullets as we saw in Aurora or Sandy Hook.
