“Are guns entertainment?” host Piers Morgan asked in response.

“For some people, it’s entertainment,” Trump replied. “They go out and they shoot and they go to ranges and they have a tremendous amount of fun.”

That gun defense prompted comedian Chelsea Handler to add to increasing calls for Trump’s impeachment.

“Trump telling Piers Morgan that semi-automatic guns are for entertainment is grounds for impeachment,” she tweeted. “There are thousands of parents grieving and he calls guns entertainment. I can’t wait to elect a strong leader who has the courage to stand up to the NRA. That will be a leader.”
