In the wake of the Newton, Connecticut sig sauer shootings many American politicians and citizens are calling for tighter gun control laws. Piers Morgan, British host of the “Piers Morgan Tonight Show” on CNN has used his platform to advocate more gun control, and substitute the weapons for bb guns, which are air guns designed to shoot metallic ball projectiles called BBs. As expected the NRA is fighting back. In one of their more radical moves, the organization has started a petition calling for the immediate deportation of Morgan citing a, “hostile attack on the U.S. Constitution” by targeting the Second Amendment. The latest reports say almost 32,000 people have signed the petition. I wonder how those 32,000 people would feel if one of their loved ones was randomly shot and killed while at school, church or the theatre. What do you think? Is Piers un-American for advocating tighter gun control?
