Last night St. Louis radio host Dana Loesch went on CNN to "debate" Piers Morgan about gun control. The problem? Every single time Morgan asked her a question, he rudely interrupted her answer and went on an anti-gun tirade. At the end of the segment, Morgan got so angry that he crumpled a piece of paper and threw it across the desk. Just this week, Loesch explained to Morgan that an AR-15 uses .223 ammo after he said AT-15 rifles use .233 ammo.

"Do you want a tank? DO YOU WANT A TANK?!"

Scottie Hughes, who was in studio with Morgan, is a Townhall Finance columnist and wrote about the death of her brother just recently.

We don’t talk about the first day of spring in 1974.  It’s been that way for as long as I could remember.  March 20th started off like any other as my 8 year old brother headed off to school wearing his blue ball cap and backpack. My mom remembers him yelling back into the house, ‘I Love You Mom” before shutting the door.

That was the last time she saw my brother, Cliff.

The Dekalb County Chief of Police told my mother we would never know what exactly happened in the bedroom of the nanny that afternoon.  The police report later revealed the nanny heard Cliff begging, “Please help me.” A shot rang out.  When she ran into the room it was too late.  Her 12-year-old son was standing over my brother’s lifeless body.  In his hands was his parent’s rifle, which he had just used to shoot my brother through the heart at point blank range.

The motive was never determined.  One suspicion was the boy was possibly jealous of the affection his mother showed my brother.  Cliff had been dubbed “The Mayor” by the neighborhood because of his outgoing personality. He spent many hours playing games with the seniors who lived in the complex.
