Piers Morgan, outspoken gun control advocate and CNN host, sent out a public plea/insult Monday for National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre to appear on his program.
"Come on Wayne LaPierre, stop hiding from me," Morgan said in a tweet directed at the NRA. "Come on my show and let's debate guns properly. What are you scared of?"
We've requested comment from the NRA regarding the tweet.
Since last year Morgan has been on a crusade to see gun control legislation advance, using his show as a type of soap box for the cause. In March, he banned pro-gun conservative radio talker Dana Loesch from his show following a tweet she sent about an alleged murder in Britain that involved a machete.
"Was the guy with the machete a member of the NRA?" Loesch tweeted. "Asking for a friend." Morgan responded by unfollowing her on Twitter and saying she was "banned" from the show. Loesch, who had appeared on the show multiple times before, has not appeared on it since.
LaPierre appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday to discuss the Navy Yard shootings.
