Gun advocates are not the only ones speaking out about Piers Morgan. There's now a counter-petition to keep the CNN host in the United States that reads, "No one in the UK wants him back."
The counter-petition was started on the White House website on Tuesday, and had 126 signatures as of Wednesday morning. It cites three reasons that Morgan should stay in the country.
"Firstly, the first amendment," it begins. "Second and the more important point. No one in the UK wants him back. Actually there is a third. It will be hilarious to see how loads of angry Americans react."
Tens of thousands of people recently signed a petition for Morgan's deportation from the States, after the CNN host demanded tighter gun control. Morgan made repeated calls for stricter controls in the wake of the Newtown shooting, in which twenty children and seven adults were killed.
