Radio host Alex Jones is on his way to confront Piers Morgan as the CNN host continues his assault on the second amendment by recording his show live from a gun store in Texas, renewing the debate between the two that exploded onto television screens last month.
Morgan will today visit Tactical Firearms in Katy, Texas, a gun shop that was unfairly portrayed as being sympathetic to the Obama administration’s evisceration of the right to bear arms in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings.
Owner Jeremy Alcede inadvertently caused outrage when he publicly supported a ban of online ammunition sales but it quickly became apparent that his words had been misconstrued. Infowars has confirmed that the store is vehemently pro-second amendment.
The CNN host kept the location of the broadcast quiet until today. He will be joined on the show by rock star Ted Nugent and Senator Ted Cruz, both staunch supporters of gun rights.
Jones will lead a friendly, peaceful protest with other second amendment activists who will gather outside as Morgan records his live show. Tactical Firearms is located at 1200 S Mason Rd.
“Piers, I’d like to shake your hand in Texas and have a civil conversation,” Jones tweeted earlier.
“When I appeared on Piers’ show last month, I invited him to come to Texas and enjoy some shooting. It appears Piers has agreed to do that, but he didn’t invite me along, so I’ve crashed the party,” said Jones.
Despite routinely acknowledging that it was his most popular interview to date, Morgan has refused to respond to Jones’ challenge for a second debate on the gun control issue.
Morgan appeared to relent on the gun control debate late last month, expressing his annoyance at the likelihood that Senator Dianne Feinstein’s anti-gun legislation will fail.
Indeed, it seems as though Morgan is mirroring Barack Obama’s tactic of having himself photographed shooting guns in an attempt to make his anti-second amendment views look more reasoned.
Morgan previously admitted that he was “standing on the graves of dead Sandy Hook children,” in order to provide a platform for his anti-gun rhetoric.
The day after Jones’ appearance on Morgan’s show, the CNN host and his guests made jokes about shooting the Texan radio host with a semi-automatic assault weapon.
