Oust Piers Mor­gan, pe­ti­tion­ers sug­gest

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN 360 DAILY -

LON­DON — Tens of thou­sands of peo­ple have signed a pe­ti­tion call­ing for Bri­tish CNN host Piers Mor­gan to be de­ported from the U.S. over his gun con­trol views.

Mor­gan has taken an ag­gres­sive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the New­town, Conn., school shoot­ing. Last week, 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 Fri­day 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.
