Pro-gun petition to deport Piers Morgan


Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the US over his gun control views.

Mr Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter US gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his Piers Morgan Tonight show an "unbelievably stupid man."

Now, gun rights activists are fighting back. A petition created last week on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Mr Morgan of engaging in a "hostile attack against the US constitution" by targeting the second amendment. It demands he be deported immediately for "exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens."
