Thousands sign ''Deport Piers Morgan back to the UK'' vs ''Keep Piers Morgan in the USA" petitions

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition to deport Piers Morgan, 47 following his calls for increased gun control in America. The British CNN Anchor tweeted this yesterday:

The petition was posted on and requires about 25,000 signatures within 30 days to get a response from the US government.

The outspoken CNN anchor called for tighter gun control measures in the wake of the December 14 massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

He interviewed Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt, who suggested more weapons were a credible solution.

"You're an unbelievably stupid man, aren't you?" Morgan asked during the heated debate.

"You have absolutely no coherent argument. You don't actually give a damn about the gun murder rate in America."

Following the interview, a Texas journalist posted the petition on the White House website alleging Morgan "is engaged in a hostile attack against the US Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment".

"We demand that Mr Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens," the petition says.

A defiant Mr Morgan refused to back down from his position and also also declared that the Bible needs to be rewritten to allow gay marriage. Morgan said that both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution are heavily flawed, and need to be rewritten.
''Both the Bible and the Constitution were well intentioned but they are basically, inherently flawed. Hence, the need to amend it," Morgan said while interviewing Pastor Rick Warren on his CNN show.

''But you and I know the Bible is, in many places, a flawed document," Morgan continued. "My point to you about gay rights for example - it's time for an amendment to the Bible. You should compile a new Bible."

Hundreds have signed the "Keep Piers Morgan in the USA" petition after it was proposed by Janusz Jasinski, a Birmingham-based Web site designer.

A third petition is calling on Home Secretary Theresa May to stop him from returning to Britain.
