Once again Piers Morgan, an immigrant, has decided to call for a national convention to rewrite what he claims is the clumsily written 2nd Amendment. What a fool. It is amazing what liberalism does to the mind.

Morgan spoke to an audience at the National Press Club and discussed his new book, “Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God and George Clooney.” The CNN host has gained notoriety for calling for more gun control, especially since the shootings in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., and Morgan didn’t disappoint, addressing what he says is the evolution Second Amendment and the Constitution.
