Alex Jones sounds off on Piers Morgan Tonight
Storified by Maclean’s Magazine· Tue, Jan 08 2013 03:12:37
Americans are passionate about their second amendment—the right to bear arms—so when CNN’s Piers Morgan came out saying he’s in favour of banning military-style assault weapons, radio host Alex Jones started a petition to the White House to deport Piers Morgan.” With more than 100,000 signatures on the petition, Jones was the feature interview on Piers Morgan Tonight on Monday. It was a made-for-TV event, in which some called Jones “passionate,” though more called his on-air tirade “crazy.” Whatever you call it, Twitter was full of opinions.

As for Piers Morgan and the petition to have him deported, he addressed that at the end of his show.
