Piers Morgan made sure to put on his serious face tonight while scolding Tennessee Sen. Stacey Campfield for his call for pressure cooker control after the Boston Marathon bombings: exploiting a tragedy to score political points is no laughing matter, after all. In his self-appointed role as America’s conscience, Morgan concluded by laying the blame for America’s next mass shooting at the feet of “people like” Campfield.

Uh oh. @piersmorgan and TN state sen Stacey Campfield getting a tad heated. 2nd state senator this week to call him “dude”.

America and @piersmorgan– please don’t judge us logical Tennesseans by @votestacey. I promise we don’t share his idiotic views. @cnn

Campfield’s critics accused him of being tasteless, but did his appearance expose him as racist as well?

@piersmorgan these senators poking at you about speaking in an english accent and you going back to britain is kinda racist.
