More than 48,000 people have signed a petition posted to the White House website calling for the deportation of CNN host Piers Morgan as punishment for his pro-gun control comments. Morgan recently outraged gun rights advocates by accurately calling Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt an "idiot," "dangerous" and an "unbelievably stupid man."

The online petition includes the following:

"We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens," the petition said.

Because, you know, nothing undermines the Bill of Rights more than the exercise of one's right to free speech. What a bunch of dangerous, unbelievably stupid idiots.
