    CNN anchor threatens to deport self if gun laws donít change

    This is the best thing I read today!

    Piers Morgan Threatens to Self-Deport Over Gun Laws - Yahoo! TV

    British CNN host Piers Morgan says he may “deport himself” if America doesn’t change its “crazy gun laws,” according to the London Daily Mail.
    The comments come as a response to a petition demanding his deportation because of his views on gun control.
    Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting on Dec. 14 in which 20 children and 6 adults were killed.
    Earlier this month, 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.”
    The petition has already hit the 25,000 signature threshold to get a White House response. By Saturday, it had more than 91,000 signatures.
    Morgan seemed unfazed — and even amused — by the movement.
    In a series of Twitter messages, he alternately urged his followers to sign the petition and in response to one article about the petition said “bring it on” as he appeared to track the petition’s progress.
    “If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?” he wrote.


    Thousands sign U.S. petition to deport Piers Morgan over gun comments

    (Reuters) - More than 48,000 people have signed a petition that they posted on the White House website demanding that British CNN talk show host Piers Morgan be deported over comments he made on air about gun control.
    Morgan last week lambasted pro-gun guests on his show, after the December 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman shot dead 26 people, including 20 children.
    "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," the petition said.
    The petition, started on December 21 by a man identified as Kurt N. from Austin, Texas, accuses Morgan of subverting the second amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to bear arms.
    U.S. citizens can file a petition on the White House website, whitehouse.gov, if they collect at least 25,000 signatures within 30 days. The White House is then obliged to issue a response.
    Morgan, 47, a former newspaper editor in London, shot back at his critics on Twitter. He repeated his past calls for the United States to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and conduct background checks on all gun purchases.
    Five days after the Connecticut massacre, Morgan called a guest, Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners for America, an "idiot," "dangerous" and an "unbelievably stupid man" when Pratt argued that more guns were needed to combat crime in the United States.
    "I don't care about a petition to deport me. I do care about poor NY firefighters murdered/injured with an assault weapon today. #GunControlNow," Morgan tweeted on Monday, referring to a shooting in New York that killed three people, including the gunman.
    Christa Robinson, a CNN spokeswoman, said the network had no immediate comment on the petition.
    Publicist Howard Bragman, vice chairman of Reputation.com, said the controversy will get Morgan attention that may translate into higher ratings and wouldn't harm his reputation.
    "A lot of it comes from his being British, he's seen the differences between the U.S. and UK, he's passionate and authentic in taking this issue on, and it's probably only going to help him attract more people to his show," Bragman, told Reuters.

    Bon Voyage Piers! I will truly miss your sardonic condescension, your euro-trash accent, your high-brow manners & your distain for all-things American (except, of course, the commercial prosperity unavailable in your home country that has lined your now departing pockets). GET OUT & STAY OUT!

    If he does go home, do you think he would be surprised to know that he is more likely to be the victim of a violent crime over there? But I guess he probably has armed security, so it shouldn't be a concern to him...
