After some back and forth, Gervais ultimately admitted he agreed with Morgan, saying blind people shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun “because they can’t see what they’re shooting.” But the comedian added that Morgan shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun either.
Morgan told Gervais that since he was a United States resident, he had the constitutional right to bear arms.
“But tell me you’re not allowed to carry a gun,” Gervais said with feigned concern.
As animated as ever, Morgan went on to explain that, if he wanted to, he could stroll into a Walmart in Texas and buy an AR-15, but not a Kinder Egg, because that would be a choking hazard.
“Dear America,” Gervais said, addressing the nation. “Please let Piers buy a Kinder Egg, but don’t let him buy a gun.”
Shortly before the show aired on CNN, Morgan tweeted this:
Good news @rickygervais – we kept in the ending to our interview with your deeply offensive joke at my expense. CNN 9pm.
The Sig Sauer p320 X5 Legion has been on the market for a little while now. So I wanted to bring you a review after shooting more than 30,000 rounds through mine over a year of competing in 3-gun and USPSA.
