Conservative radio host Alex Jones filed a petition to the White House citizen input website to have Piers Morgan deported for his stance on gun control. Piers Morgan subsequently had Mr. Jones on his show to talk about it where he acted out with fury.
“I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! Doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street, begging for ’em to have their guns taken. We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?! That’s why you’re going to fail, and the establishment knows, no matter how much propaganda, the republic will rise again!”
Piers Morgan later descried how uncomfortable the experience was.
“I can’t think of a better advertisement for gun control than Alex Jones’ interview last night,” Morgan told CNN on Tuesday. “It was startling, it was terrifying in parts, it was completely deluded. It was based on a premise of making Americans so fearful that they all rush out to buy even more guns … the kind of twisted way that he turned everything into this assault on the Second Amendment is exactly what the gun rights lobby people do.” Huffington Post 01/09/2012
Even Conservative radio host Glenn Beck thought Mr. Morgan chose the right person to point out the lunacy of the pro gun control movement.
