In Piers Morgan’s America, everyone is trying to arm themselves with an AR-15 for protection, which in his view is extremely dangerous.
During an interview with the now-famous former Marine Joshua Boston, who wrote a public letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein D-Calif. opposing gun control, Morgan cooked up a dangerous scenario where every American was armed with an AR-15.
“If everybody exercises that choice and is legally allowed to do so, you could end up with every movie theater and every school and every church and every shopping mall in America, with everybody armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and magazines that could kill 100 people in a minute. Where does that lead America to, other than utter Wild West hell?” Morgan asked.
Boston insisted that Americans should have the choice to own semi-automatic weapons adding that “they shouldn’t be denied that right to self-defense because of the action of lunatics.”
