Piers Morgan's gun control rants are not sitting well with some.
The CNN host has incurred his share of wrath since the Newtown shooting massacre - and now there's even a petition seeking to deport him from the USA.
The petition to deport him, submitted on the official White House website by writer Kurt Nimmo, has received over 12,000 signatures. The text reads:
"British Citizen and CNN 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 TV host."
If exploiting one's position as a national network TV host were grounds for government action, we're pretty sure CNN and Fox News would both be out of business.
Peeps are really going nuts with these White House petitions of late.
A Texas secession effort, launched following the reelection of President Obama, has garnered well over the 25,000 signatures needed for a formal response.
The petition to oust Piers makes those Texans' case look promising.
Morgan, who's made forceful attacks on pro-gun advocates in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook (Conn.) Elementary, responded to the petition rather happily.
He raises some interesting points ... grammatical and constitutional:
Gun control: Is it time for more/stricter laws?
