CNN's Piers Morgan says he's getting sick and tired of having the same “ridiculous debate” on gun violence every single time there is a mass shooting,

He made that abundantly clear last night.

Piers absolutely unloaded on conservative radio host Ben Ferguson and gun rights activist John Lott during a heated argument over gun control:

Ferguson, following the Navy Yard shooting, said this was a gun-free zone, so gun control was “a failure in this base with all the best security in the world.”

Morgan countered that the bigger failure is the “failure to do anything” by the elected officials in the U.S. in the wake of countless tragic shootings.

Ted Nugent. Piers Morgan.

The gloves came off again in a debate on gun control this week, and whichever side you're on, it's hard to deny that these two squaring off makes for quality TV.

Piers and Ted sat down in Texas, where Morgan visited a gun range and tried out a rifle similar to the one used by Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook massacre.

While admittedly "exciting," Piers cited his experience with the weapon - easy to use, fairly accurate - as justification for an assault weapons ban.

Despite more than 100,000 virtual signatures demanding it, the U.S. government has denied a petition from gun advocates to deport CNN host Piers Morgan.

The petition started in response to British-born Piers Morgan's gun control rant was posted to the White House's We the People forum last month.

Morgan has been even more outspoken than usual in the aftermath of the massacre that killed 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Earlier this week, he clashed it Alex Jones in an epic interview ... or whatever that was. Bottom line, people petitioned to throw him out of the U.S.

The Obama administration responds to any petition with 25,000 signatures, and therefore, issued a statement on Morgan and his 1st Amendment rights.

Conservative radio host Alex Jones, one of the men behind the White House petition to deport Piers Morgan, squared off with him on CNN last night.

It got heated. Fast.

Morgan's anti-gun stance has been vocalized often and pointedly since the Newtown, Conn., shooting last month, and pro-gun Jones came out swinging.

The much hyped debate wasn’t much of a debate, as few questions were asked or answered. Instead, Jones pretty much exploded two minutes in.

“I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! It doesn’t matter how many lemmings you have out there on the street begging for them to have their guns taken."

"We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?” he said.

No need to threaten to deport Piers Morgan over his anti-gun views, America. If things don't change before long, the CNN anchor will be happy to see himself out.

The UK native has been on a rampage of his own since Adam Lanza killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

His anti-gun rhetoric has gotten almost vitriolic more than once, and 90,000 people signed a petition to deport Morgan for his anti-2nd Amendment views.

The 1st Amendment clearly protects his right to criticize the 2nd, of course, so he's not going anywhere (not that all Brits necessarily want him back).

In a new column for The Daily Mail, Morgan argued against those who have said the Sandy Hook tragedy calls for more armed guards in schools, and more guns.

The gun control debate is on, and it is more heated than ever.

In the aftermath of the Connecticut school shooting, CNN's Piers Morgan absolutely went OFF on guns and gun rights advocates on his program Friday.

Wherever you stand on the issue, this is a must-watch:

The conversation got heated when Morgan asked “why on Earth” anyone would advocate for more guns, given the unspeakable carnage at Sandy Hook.

“If we could suddenly make all guns disappear, I'd have a different position,” replied Steve Dulan of the Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners.

Under fire for his anti-gay comments on Piers Morgan Tonight, former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron defended himself in a Facebook post Tuesday.

His tone was less combative and his comments much better-worded, but Kirk did not apologize for his beliefs, or the manner in which he voiced them.

In fact, Cameron criticized the media and those contributing to the backlash, defending principles he stands for and the right to express them publicly.

The actor defended his appearance on CNN (below) this way:

"During the CNN interview, I was asked to express my views about homosexuality, gay marriage, and abortion. While that was not the agreed-upon purpose of the interview, I was pleased to answer Piers' questions as honestly as I could.

"To some, my responses were not sufficiently 'loving' toward the gay community. I can only say that it is my life's mission to love all people, and I expressed the same views clearly and emphatically expressed throughout Judeo-Christian scriptures."

"As a Bible believing Christian, I could not have answered any other way."

Sean Penn channeled his inner Morgan Freeman this week.

The actor raised eyebrows by calling Tea Party members a bunch of racists, drawing a stinging rebuke from the national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots.

Penn referred to Tea Partiers as the “Get the N-Word Out of the White House Party” on Piers Morgan Tonight, saying its members want to "lynch" President Obama.

That sentiment and word choice did not sit well with many.

Said Mark Meckler, co-founder and national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots:

“I’m fairly certain that Sean Penn has never been to a tea party or met anyone who belongs to a local tea party. I’d be happy to sit down and speak with him if he’s ever interested in really speaking with one of us and learning what we are about instead of just slandering millions of his fellow American citizens with racist hatred."

"While protected by the 1st Amendment, this rhetoric has no place in reasonable discourse in America. Then again, no one ever accused Sean Penn of ‘reasonable discourse.’”

We know where Herman Cain stands on this, but what about you?

Is the Tea Party racist?

Former U.S. Senate candidate and possible witch Christine O'Donnell peaced out of an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight after a heated exchange.

O'Donnell, who ran unsuccessfully as a Republican for Joe Biden's old seat last fall, was there to promote her book, but ended up walking (not flying) out.

Christine was persistently asked by Piers about her views on DADT, gay marriage, and sexuality, but kept trying to steer him away from those subjects.

"You're promoting the damn book!" Morgan exclaimed after her 14th attempt to refer him to it. O'Donnell called him "borderline rude" and awkwardly left.

If nothing else, we learned that O'Donnell does not condone masturbating. Still unresolved is whether she has cast any good spells recently.
