The petition to deport CNN host Piers Morgan for his recent comments on gun control has reached over 68,000 signatures as of this posting, which will force the White House to respond. The petition, created Friday, needed 25,000 signatures within 30 d
ays for the White House to take action and it’s reached far more than that in a mere three days.
In case you missed it, the petition called for Morgan to be deported for his “hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution.” Gun advocates are angry about Morgan’s comments calling for increased gun legislation in America and are accusing him of wanting to “undermine the Bill of Rights.”
Morgan has aggressively responded to the petition several times on Twitter, most recently Tweeting a video link to a town hall on guns that he hosted last week, with the message, “This is why I’m facing deportation from America” and the hashtag, #GunControlNow.
