On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that an off-duty armed officer at the Price Middle School in Atlanta disarmed a student who managed to shoot a 14-year-old boy in the neck. CNN's Piers Morgan, however, claimed in a tweet that the officer really didn't stop what could have been another Sandy Hook tragedy, Twitchy reported Friday.
"REVEALED: Armed guard was NOT able to stop Atlanta school shooting," Morgan tweeted, linking to the AP report that says the boy was disarmed by an off-duty officer at the school.
Twitchy said that while most "reasonable people" would "consider this an argument in favor of placing armed guards in schools, or perhaps allowing teachers to arm themselves," Morgan claims that since the guard didn't stop the first shot, he really didn't stop anything.
"Thats not only not reasonable," Twitchy said, "its pathetic."
"There is no telling how tragic Thursdays shooting could have been had that armed guard not been in the building," Jason Howerton wrote at The Blaze.
A number of Twitter users called Morgan out for his tweet.
"This Tweet by @PiersMorgan is so ridiculous, it doesn't need additional commentary," wrote best-selling author Brad Thor...

Why are there so many foreigners on American TV?
As if we don’t have enough home grown liberals to lecture us???
It’s maddening to see a Brit such as this dude, lecture us about our constitution, and lecture us about how we should live.
He has no appreciation for our constitution or our history. How the H*** did he get a green card to work in this country????
He is just trying to get his sorry ratings out of the basement.
I read that England doesn’t want him back. Poor chap..where can he go after he hits rock bottom. (like I care)
They don’t want him back in Britain.
Iran? Burma? North Korea?
In my opinion, I think he is being deliberately provocative, in search of ratings. I am presuming a lot of folks would never tune in to CNN, but do so, just to see what this clown will say next. I predict he is a passing fad, and soon will be sent packing. I know ratings plummeted after Larry (not the) King retired, I get the impression that Morgan is clinging to the life preserver that was thrown to him, after Newtown. Thank you.
Yep, Piers got a six-month extension because of the gun episode. Maybe he can find another mess to stumble into by June, like gang warfare in Chicago.
Oh my. Although you are probably correct, I hope not. Thanks!
They have to send one of their morons out to say it. What else do you expect them to say? May as well be PiersMoron.

Retarded Poofter ...
Piers got a green card because - sorry to say - he is a PERFECT fit for your cancerous MSM.
Wheras he got kicked out of Britain for faking libellous stories about UK soldiers in Iraq.
Because you complain to us instead of CNN?
Answer: RuPaul is a transsexual something entertainer while Piers Morgan is an elitist British poofter snob and insufferable boor.
Is this idiot closing his eyes, sticking fingers in his ears and chanting nya, nya nya incessantly yet on TV yet?
Now I truly believe in liberal lunacy, they all have these brain slugs I swear. Makes me think about a certain parasite that actually turns your brain into swiss cheese by boring through it, may God have mercy on their souls.
Who to believe? Piers Morgan or the AP?
That’s a tough one.
Who listens to this dumb arse?
I guess the fact that the guy didn’t have to shoot the perp to stop him means he wasn’t armed - the Left has no understanding that just the presence of a weapon in the hands of a righteous man or woman can be a big deterrent.
I feel like I’m back in college. The Left makes stupid, untrue statements and won’t let you refute them. Just like the old days.
Morgan has a home at Al Jazerra. I’m currently in Panama where I got to view it for the first time. Morgan and his anti-American views would fit right in.
