Petition to Deport Piers Morgan For Anti-Gun Position Just Fires Morgan Up Even More.
After a heated debate on his show, where Piers addresses gun advocate John Lott, arms supporters are calling for Piers deportations. The exchange between the two got heated, when Morgan asked Lott why a kindergarten teacher needed three guns, including a semi-automatic weapon in her house.
Piers lost his temper two or three time’s during the emotional exchange. After that night gun proponents have launched a petition created to deport Piers Morgan out of the country and back to the U.K. In just a few days the petition, which is posted on the White House website already has 25,000 signatures. In response Piers tweeted,
Just 4821 signatures needed to take my deportation petition to the point Obama has to respond. I urge you to sign: https://t.co/l2UJKBwd

If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me? #havebaggagewilltravel

The basis of the petitions is that he is attacking our Constitution by going after the 2nd Amendment. The petition reads,
“British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”
Piers, not to be one bullied and also being quite clever himself tweeted back.
Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for 'attacking 2nd Amendment rights' – is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?
