In the wake of the public outrage that followed after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, CNN host Piers Morgan became an enemy of pro gun advocates across the United States. Due to remarks made to a gun rights advocate on his show “Piers Morgan Tonight,” other gun rights activists have sent an online petition to the White House
that demands Piers Morgan be deported from the United States. They accuse Morgan of being hostile towards the United States Constitution. However, Morgan was amused by the idea of the petition to deport him.
So far, Politico reports that the number of signatures for the petition is almost 66K
. In short, the number of people wanting Piers Morgan continues to climb. However, Morgan is simply telling those people to “bring it on.”
The people of the United Kingdom, have been made aware
of the petition to the White House. Responding to the petition to the White House, the British are saying this: No thanks, you can keep Piers Morgan. In this respect, the UK is telling the pro gun advocates “do not pass GO, do not collect $500” in response to the petition to boot Morgan out of the country.
In response, citizens of the UK have petitioned the British government not to take Morgan back. According to their petition, it claims that America wanted Piers Morgan. The petition pleads with British Home Secretary Theresa May to not allow Morgan to be deported back to Great Britain. Apparently, it seems that Morgan isn't well-liked in the UK.
The British gave their reasons
that Morgan should remain in the US. The first reason
was because of the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution which calls forth the right of free speech. The second reason is that “nobody” in the UK wants Morgan to return. The third reason is because they find it humorous. For the third reason, they are anxious for the hilarity that ensues when many pro-gun Americans get angry.
In short, pro-gun activists want the US to get rid of Piers Morgan; at the same time, citizens of the UK don't want Morgan to return
and wish for him to stay in the US.
