Gun Tweet of the Day: CNN’s Piers Morgan Deportation Edition


After CNN talk show host Piers “Machine Gun” Morgan called Gun Owners of America President Larry Prattt “an unbelievably stupid man” a Texas gun guy posted the following petition on the White House website: “British Citizen and CNN television 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 television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.” As of 16:31 EST on Christmas day, the petition has 65,725 signatures, well past the 25k “threshold.” Morgan’s not a naturalized U.S. citizen; he’s probably here on an H1 visa. The CNNer hasn’t been arrested for a crime and the Obama administration LOVES him (check out his Twitter pic). So the petition is a statement. An important one. Maybe even some kind of turning point.
