US petition to deport Piers Morgan hits 31,400

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/E/EU_BRITAIN_US_PIERS_MORGAN?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2012-12-24-07-01-03

LONDON (AP) -- More than 31,400 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 Dec. 21 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 and demands he be deported immediately.

The petition has already hit the 25,000 signature threshold to get a White House response. By Monday, it had 31,430 signatures.

16. So you would send them food that will give them a terrible case of the Lion or Tiger shits?

Just launch his ass into the sun. I'm sure if we took up a collection it would be paid for right quick.

17. Africa? Try Siberia

At least in an African country, it's hot and tropical, unless it's a country in the Sahara, where Wacko Wayne can expect to be shot back at. In Siberia, he'd have to face tigers, extreme cold, snow, and other things that he'll have trouble making it alive.
