Gun nuts petition to have Piers Morgan deported for using First Amendment

The Associated Press reports: Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun control views.

Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. 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 Dec. 21 on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a “hostile attack against the U.S. 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.”

    There is a petition on whitehouse.gov to counter those who should seek to embarrass Piers Morgan for exercising his rights to free speech. Please sign this petition as a show of support for those who think that the first amendment is equally worth supporting as the second amendment regardless on your viewpoint on guns and gun control. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitio

  2. I’ve looked on the WH petitions page and can find no such petition:
