US gun lobby calls for Piers Morgan to be deported from US
Just two days after the petition calling for Morgan’s deportation was posted, it had already garnered more than 28,500 signatures, passing the 25,000 required to get a response from the White House.
The outspoken former tabloid editor has launched something of a personal crusade for greater gun control measures in the wake of the December 14 massacre at Sandy Hook elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
On Tuesday, Morgan held a prickly interview with Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt, appearing to become incensed and incredulous when Pratt suggested more, not fewer, weapons as the solution.
“You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?” Morgan asked during the heated debate. “You have absolutely no coherent argument. You don’t actually give a damn about the gun murder rate in America.”
