Piers Morgan Deportation Petition Posted To White House After His Gun Control Rants

Posted: Updated:

Piers Morgan's outspokenness about gun control has brought about a petition seeking to deport him from the United States.

The petition, which has been submitted on a White House website, has received over 12,000 signatures. (It takes 25,000 before the White House is obligated to address the petition.) The petition was launched by writer Kurt Nimmo. The text 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.

Morgan has made several forceful attacks on pro-gun advocates in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary.

He responded with some glee to the petition:

Piers Morgan
It's 'your' > RT : nothing but a constitution hating commie...go back and stay in YOU'RE country not mine

Piers Morgan
Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for 'attacking 2nd Amendment rights' - is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?
