The White House will be required to respond to a petition calling for CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the United States after it passed the 25,000-signature threshold. 

 

The petition was created on December 21st and had reached more than 33,000 signatures by the morning of the 24th. It reads: “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...”

 

Morgan has been a vocal critic of gun advocates following the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, engaging in several heated debates on his CNN show “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

 

 

 

“You’re an unbelievable stupid man, aren’t you?”

“How many more kids have to die before you guys say we want less guns and not more?”

“You need to stop repeating a blatant lie about what happens in other countries.”

 

Tim Stanley of London’s The Telegraph wonders if Morgan’s exuberant interviewing techniques are actually hurting the gun control movement. 

 

“Americans don’t like some random Brit going over there and criticising their country … He’s certainly given conservatives a gift by allowing them to portray gun control as the issue of choice of foreign liberals.”

 

Morgan appears to have taken the petition in stride, tweeting on Monday morning:  If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?

 

On Friday, President Obama issued a video response to another online petition calling for stricter gun control laws. That petition had close to 200,000 responses.

 

Gawker points out, while the White House has said it would respond to all petitions over 25,000, it’s not technically obligated to do so. In fact, a petition to grant the State of Texas the right to secede from the Union currently has over 120,000 signatures and zero White House responses.”
