[Ed. – Maybe he’s the one who should ‘try reading up on’ the history.]
Piers Morgan is having a busy evening lecturing Americans on the Second Amendment tonight, and he’s doing a stellar job of making sure everyone knows not only is he ignorant about principles of American constitutional law, he’s also a colossal jerk.
Morgan posted several tweets dismissing gun rights as something that should be limited to hunting and displaying an astounding level of misinformation about guns and how they operate.
Morgan told people to “try reading up on” the history of the Second Amendment, while interpreting the law completely backwards.
As many people tweeted at him, the Supreme Court of the United States explicitly held in District of Columbia v. Heller that “[t]he Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”
