American Kyle Kashuv schools British Piers Morgan on Second Amendment in epic smackdown

Kyle Kashuv schooled British TV personality Piers Morgan about the Second Amendment in an epic Twitter battle which underscored how little Morgan knows about the U.S. Constitution.

Kashuv is a 16-year-old student survivor of the Valentine’s Day massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida. He is a Second Amendment advocate (and apparently a really knowledgeable one).

Kyle’s Twitter takedown started after Morgan falsely claimed the Second Amendment “was about arming people as part of a well regulated militia – not as a bunch of unregulated Rambos.”

Kashuv responded by saying: “So you don’t bother to read Federalist Papers? Not your thing?”

The Federalist Papers (published 1788) stated that the purpose of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was to guarantee the right of individuals — not just the “militia” — to bear arms in self-defense.

Morgan stepped on a rake when he condescendingly insisted to Kashuv that the Second Amendment “never intended to mean an individual’s right to bear arms.” That is false.

Kashuv fired back: “That’s completely and totally not true. You should try and read Federalist 46. Also, see SCOTUS ruling in Caetano and Heller.”

In the landmark 2008 Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller, SCOTUS ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess firearms unrelated to whether they serve in the military.

And in the 2016 federal lawsuit Caetano v. Massachusetts, the U.S. Supreme Court again unanimously held that the plaintiff, an individual, had the right to carry firearms in self-defense.

Piers Morgan is going to need some aloe to nurse those sick Twitter burns that 16-year-old Kyle scorched him with.

Here’s the thing: Whether you’re a gun advocate or not, the Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right to bear firearms in self-defense. Point-blank, period.

Supporting the Second Amendment does not mean you like guns; it means you support the United States Constitution. You know, that dried-up old parchment paper that the greatest country on Earth is founded upon.

Fortunately for Piers, the U.S. Constitution also guarantees that clueless pinheads have the right to free speech (no matter how dumb), as guaranteed under the First Amendment.

Meanwhile, here’s a brief history of anti-Second Amendment leaders of the modern era.
