Gun Nuts Demand Piers Morgan Deportation

Meanwhile, in a tangentially related story, gun enthusiasts have launched a petition to have Piers Morgan, the British CNN host, deported for his comments, in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, about Gun Owners of America Executive Director Larry Pratt.

The petition calling on President Barack Obama to have Morgan deported now has more than 80,000 signatures, Politico's Katie Glueck reports.
