Yesterday I heard a rumor that Piers Morgan was coming to a Houston area gun shop on Monday, February 4 to host his show. After some
research googling, it now looks like it’s true.
According to Piers Morgan’s Twitter account, he will be hosting his show from a Texas “gun store”, and will also be shooting (that should be funny by the way). I have yet to confirm, but rumor has it that the gun store he is referring to is none other than Tactical Firearms in Katy, TX (which is part of the Houston metro area).
You might remember that Tactical Firearms recently made headlines in the 2A community when owner Jeremy Alcede went on a radio show and supported an online ammunition ban, and then quickly reversed his position after the public outcry.
If this is true, here’s why it’s important.
First off, Piers is coming to my hometown. Personally, I want to see if he does in fact travel with an armed entourage. I think there’s a very good chance that he does, which makes him a dirty hypocrite. I’d love to get photos of such.
Second, out of all the gun shops and ranges in the United States, Piers (potentially) has chosen Tactical Firearms, who has in the past sold out on gun control issues. I’m not saying Tactical Firearms will or will not again, but I don’t think anyone can blame me for being nervous about it. And, again if true, it’s highly coincidental that Piers chose this specific gun shop.
If any of you have intel confirming that Piers will indeed be coming to Tactical Firearms in Katy, TX, please leave me a comment below and I’ll update this post. As of now, it should be treated as a rumor.
I called Tactical Firearms and they confirmed that Piers will be there doing his show (live?) on Monday. They said that the show was not open to the public (haha, I had to ask) and they could not tell me what time he would be arriving Monday.
