Piers Morgan Builds Pathetic Straw Man Regarding Guns; Gets Smacked On Twitter

On Friday, CNN reported that when Coral Springs police arrived on the scene of the Parkland shooting, they found four armed Broward County Sheriff's deputies allegedly waiting outside the high school:

When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

In an attempt to use the news as a way to dismantle the idea that "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," pundit Piers Morgan tweeted:

While obvious to most that "not able" and "not willing" are very different things, some good folks in the Twitter community decided to take the time to educate Morgan:

Despite the ludicrousness of Morgan’s tweet, as of publication, it has been "liked" approximately 4,800 times and retweeted approximately 1,300 times.
