More than 50,000 people have signed a petition calling for British pundit Piers Morgan's deportation because of his gun control views

In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting earlier this month, Morgan has taken a stance on tighter gun control in the United States. Last week, Morgan called Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners for America, "an unbelievably stupid man" who is shaming his country during an interview with Pratt on his CNN show. As a result, Morgan has faced backlash from gun advocates who want him out of the country.

The petition, created anonymously on Friday on the White House e-petition website, calls for Morgan's immediate deportation, claiming that the host has been engaging in a "hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution." The petition has more than 50,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon — well above the 25,000-signature threshold required to get a response from the White House. However, the White House is under no obligation to respond.

Morgan, though, doesn't seem too worried about the potential deportation and has been calling the petition "ridiculous" on Twitter. "If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?" he wrote.
