Piers Morgan: ‘This Is Vaguely Tyrannical Behavior by the American Government’

In light of the IRS targeting conservative groups and the Department of Justice’s seizure of reporters’ phone records, Piers Morgan reversed course and sided with gun advocates who have expressed concerns about an expanding government.

“I’ve had some of the pro-gun lobbyists on here, saying to me, ‘Well, the reason we need to be armed is because of tyranny from our own government,’ and I’ve always laughed at them,” Morgan said last night. “But, actually, this is vaguely tyrannical behavior by the American government.”

Guest Penn Jillette agreed with his assessment: “I think that it shows you that how much we can trust the government and just sit back, which is not very much at all.”
