Will Piers Morgan Keep His Word and Deport Himself?

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. | April 18, 2013 | 3:37pm EDT

On December 29, 2012, CNN Host Piers Morgan wrote an op-ed in the UK Daily Mail stating that if the U.S. did not change its gun laws he would deport himself.

The editorial was penned a week after a petition was filed on WhiteHouse.gov to deport Mr. Morgan for "his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights" in his attack on the Second Amendment.

In the editorial, Morgan defends his position on gun control and asks that President Obama launch a federal buy-back for all assault weapons in circulation and to confiscate the rest.

He concludes with a response to the American people who have signed the petition to deport him:

"I can spare those Americans who want me deported a lot of effort by saying this: If you don't change your gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous carnage, then you don't have to worry about deporting me.

"Although I love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would...seriously consider deporting myself."

So, now that the gun bill has failed to even pass the Democrat-led Senate, will Piers make good on his threat and buy a one-way ticket back to the UK?
