Las Vegas shooting: Piers Morgan loses his cool with pro-gun campaigner in GMB interview

The TV presenter and co-host Susanna Reid were speaking to Dan Roberts about the shooting

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Piers Morgan completely lost it in an interview with a pro-gun campaigner on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday. 

The TV presenter and his co-host Susanna Reid were speaking to Dan Roberts about the shooting in Las Vegas over the weekend. 

The gunman, Stephen Paddock, opened fire on revellers at a country music festival on the city's strip, killing at least 59 and injured more than 500 people. 

When Roberts said the gun used by the 64-year-old wasn't high-powered, it provoked Morgan's fury, who said the scale of the problem was even larger than believed.

Morgan furiously asked Roberts why a Kinder Egg was outlawed in America while guns were available to be legally bought. 

Roberts called this example - which has been put to him in a previous interview - funny, and was visibly amused at it. 

The TV host said at the end of the interview he "feared" for America in the wake of Roberts' response.

After the interview, Morgan tweeted a picture of the chocolate he'd used as an example, highlighting it was banned for being a "health hazard" while guns were legal.
