    Smarting from a petition at whitehouse.gov that seems to be gathering momentum, to deport him for his attack on the 2nd ammendment, this poor excuse for a talk show host who should have just remained a singing contest judge asked if he had no right to free speech like everybody else.

    Just like a communist cadre who agitates for the downfall of a government, and when caught, invokes his rights under the very government he wants to topple.
    typical leftist.

    He is a permanent resident, not a citizen.
    If his "job" is to be in "media", and he hosts talk shows, then he should keep his opinions close to his chest, and simply be a moderator.
    He tried with Jesse Ventura.
    Jesse owned him.

    More hilarity by the far right. Deport someone for exercising their right to free speech. Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y?

    Should be petitioning the Queen. He is, afterall, her subject. What does he know about liberty? But one must admit he has no standing as a citizen and his attempts to influence public policy against a liberty enshrined in our country's founding document should be looked upon as seditious.

    how about you have a guest in your house who doesn't like your sanitation rules of using a bathroom to relieve yourselves, and insists on his way of relieving himself on the spot ?
    that is what this British guest is doing.
    He is not being a prim or proper Brit.
    Can you spell c-r-a-s-s ?

    Morgan was not just exercising his right to free speech.

    Morgan has the right to his opinion. He has the right to speak his mind in public. He does not however have the right to use his celebrity and position in the media to undermine and subvert our constitution and the rights of every American citizen.

    Now if you want to talk about hypocrisy hows this?

    Some of the most outspoken "gun control" advocates send their own children to private schools that already have armed security. Take this David Gregory guy. His kid's attend a school that has a security detail of 11 people.

    But when it comes to Gregory's own kids, however, they are secured every school day by armed guards.

    The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama, according to the Washington Post. That school is the co-ed Quaker school Sidwell Friends.
    According to a scan of the school's online faculty-staff directory, Sidwell has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed.

    Moreover, with the Obama kids in attendance, there is a secret service presence at the institution, as well. source


    Their kids are important enough to be protected by armed security while they make sure your kids are left to the mercy of every crazed killer that dares to to walk armed into a "gun free zone" and start shooting. That's what I call hypocrisy.

    I was not aware that the Constitution stipulates that a person cannot exercise the rights in the 1st amendment if they are in the media. Could you please show me where it says this?

    That would be hypocrisy if Mr. Gregory believes having security guards in schools is not a worthwhile endeavor. Has he stated as much?

    Is that what I said? No. Is that what the petition says? No.


    He didn't need to say it. It just oozes from his authoritarian elitist mindset.

    This one was just too good to pass up. Piers Morgan should have known better than to pick on one of the Second Amendment’s most well-versed defenders -- Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America.

    In short order, Mr. Pratt has Piers Morgan reduced to name-calling impotence. You’ll enjoy watching the dismantling of the anti-gun lobby’s arguments by a real American liberty fighter, Larry Pratt. SOURCE
