KATY, TX – The gun control debate may be a bit out of control in Katy.
CNN’s Piers Morgan chose Tactical Firearms, a Katy gun shop and shooting range as the backdrop for Monday’s episode of “Piers Morgan Tonight”. Included in the Monday’s debate were Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, State Senator Dan Patrick and Ted Nugent.
Tactical Firearms owner, Jeremy Alcede claims Morgan told him he wanted to use the time at the gun shop as a learning exercise.
Alcede said, “He said, well, I’d like to learn more about guns. People criticize me, saying, how can I be against guns if I don’t know anything about guns?”
Sounds good so far.
“I said man, this is going to be really good, he really is wanting to find out.”
Alcede says he was told the segment he was in would be live, but that wasn’t the case.
“The points that I did make were just garbled to the point that people were asking why was I speaking in broken sentences, and I said, look back at the video and you’ll see, in one instance I’m wearing glasses, one I’m not. One hearing protection, one not. They just chopped it up so bad it wasn’t even funny.”
Was it a cheap shot?
“They completely misrepresented what I wanted to get across, completely.”
We reached out to CNN for a response, but have not yet heard back from them.
All this as President Obama is pushing his gun control agenda. We’re guessing he won’t be welcome in Katy.
