Skip to comments.[CNN host] Piers Morgan [falsely] Claims Armed Guard Was Not Able to Stop Atlanta School Shooting
Posted on 02/02/2013 1:58:24 PM PST by grundle
An armed guard successfully disarmed a 14-year-old shooter who had opened fire at an Atlanta middle school on Thursday. Thanks to the courageous off-duty school resource officer, only one student was shot and no one was killed.
Yet CNN host Piers Morgan on Friday argued that the armed guard, an unidentified off-duty Atlanta police officer, was NOT able to stop the Atlanta school shooting, apparently because the teen shooter was able to shoot just one student before he was stopped.
REVEALED: Armed guard was NOT able to stop Atlanta school shooting, Morgan posted via his official Twitter account. He then linked to a story with a headline that completely contradicted his questionable claim. Armed guard disarmed teen in Atlanta school shooting, says police chief, the headline read.

Morgan, a particularly vocal supporter of strict gun control in the U.S., has been against the National Rifle Associations proposal of putting armed guards in schools across the country from the get-go. It seems that the CNN host was unwilling to admit that armed guards can and did in this instance prevent mass school shootings from occurring. There is no telling how tragic Thursdays shooting could have been had that armed guard not been in the building.
Several Twitter users, including best-selling author Brad Thor, were quick to call out Morgans obvious bluff.
This Tweet by @piersmorgan is so ridiculous, it doesnt need additional commentary: Twitter.com/piersmorgan/st

@piersmorgan You seem to have a reading comprehension problem, piers. The armed cop ended the shooting.

Brits like Piers are the best example you can point to when someone’s confused about why the revolutionary war broke out.
This fool would have fared better had he just not mentioned the story the way the MSM usually ignores news that disproves their version of how things go down.
How come the “night riders” haven’t paid this idiot a visit and put the fear of God in him?
He’s very near the top of my “bad” list. Hope everyone stays “good.”
He was run out of Britain for being a fraud and a liar. Naturally, he found a home at CNN.
Because we are still the good guys, and may be waiting too long to take up the offensive.
That is why I gave up debating progressives years ago. It is similar to debating jello.
Piers Morgan = Grim Persona = A Sermon Prig = Moaners Prig = Smearing Pro
I’m afraid too. We have lost too much of our freedom to even launch an offensive. However, I wish some conservatives would organize for the sole purpose of harassing the liberal media people until they become too afraid to keep up the lies. Why do we continue to grumble and complain about them and do nothing about it?
