Piers Morgan has heavily criticised US gun laws in the aftermath of the Charleston shooting.
Such a sickening outrage. Wake up America, your gun culture is disgusting. #Charleston
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 18, 2015
On Wednesday in Charleston, Carolina, a white man entered a historic African-American church and opened fire, killing nine people.
Morgan, who has been denounced by the US right in the past for his trenchant views on firearms, took to social media to oppose the idea that guns should be owned by civilians.
Is says in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution that all people have the right to bear arms, although specific legislation about who can own guns and how they can be carried and stored varies from state to state.
Morgan came in for criticism and praise from different camps after calling US gun culture “disgusting”. He also questioned whether it was sensible to sell firearms in supermarkets such as Walmart.
