    I am an American expat and I wish to express opinions freely just als Pierce Morgan does in America. Why should freedom of speech be limited to citizens ?

    @C_Lassico To begin with, journalists over here are supposed to be nuetral on a subject and unbiased. We're the arbitors of discussion and we need to see both sides. yeah right, laughable. They influance public opinion to whatever agenda they have. Its bad enough for american journalists to cheerlead the loss of our freedoms, getting public opinion behind the legislation they ultimately want to see enacted, it's worse when someone from another country, with no skin in the game, does it as well. It has fascinated me the way the press over here loves the 1st amendment, free speech for them, they're the arbitors. But something deemed offensive is labled hate speech and your first amendment right isnt as important as thiers. And neither is your second. The constitutin only has meaning to the people in power who use the little peices of it thats left that protects thier rights, not yours, or mine.

    Hi Cattleprod, you are right that journalists should be neutral and that they are in fact not. But I don't see why foreign journalists should be criticized more harshly than - say - pro NRA American journalists. I like your observation about the sensitivities of journalists ! That is spot on, and I do wonder if Mr. Morgan can accept due criticism.

    This is just another fun non-issue to keep the righties busy and outraged. It's like throwing a ball of yarn dipped in catnip to a kitten. Between this one and those morons that wanted to secede it looks like the left has found a new way to safely blow off right wing anger. That's much better than them shooting congress people.

    Keep thinking that until the shit hits the fan and when it does go cower behind your elected officials and Piers Morgan...I'm sure they will protect you. Do you even know what the main reason for The Second Amendment being in place is?

    @DarthSidious I own guns. I am not giving up my guns. I may buy another gun sometime. But to think that your guns are going to protect you from the government (ANY government) is ludicrous. You be sure and have all your guns loaded and ready to go when the Tomahawk missile comes calling.

    @jessejaymes

    Tell that nonsense to the mujihadin in Afghanistan. By being well armed, they drive out to Soviet machine and are well on their way to doing the same with the US military...

    @jessejaymes Tell that to Mujahideen and The Viet Cong. Last time I read my history both were poorly equipped armies who defeated 2 different big war machines.

    1 million signatures on an online petition our of 300 million people? Dream on. Ain't gonna happen. Move along people, nothing to see here but some right wingers doing what wingers do. Obsessing.

    The NRA may have 4 million members but don't forget the US has 300 million guns. If it wasn't for a few people with a few guns a few hundred years ago we would still kissing the queen's arse. You guys lost the war so deal with it! You have no rights here so go away.

    Nothing wrong with speaking German. It was widely spoken in this country and still is in some areas. I think you will find that the common opinion among military historians is that they key to defeating the Germans was primarily the Soviet Union. Now there is no Soviet Union to protect the United States.

    The problem with the NRA is that they only speak for the gun nuts and not for the many law abiding gun owners. That is going to be their downfall.

    This is what is motivating people. There are several just as stupid petitions to the White House.
    People should be petitioning to repeal NDAA 12 and Patriot because it 'actually does' suppress Constitutional rights.
    But, yah Piers is pretty important.
    Way to prioritize America. As always the stupidity level of people doesn't fail to amaze.

    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined." - Patrick Henry

    "To disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them ... " - George Mason

    "Before a standing army can rule the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States." - Noah Webster

    It is one thing for an American to express their feelings about one of our "rights". He came here knowing our laws and rights. If he didnt like them he should have stayed where he came from.

    Morgan is allegedly "engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights."

    YES!! anyone who trys to attack we the people should be deported or inprisioned
    This should include all Socialist, Communist, Marxist, Secular Progressives.

    The U.S. Constitution applies to him because he is subjected to our laws, regardless of his nationality. As to his views, he is right. Guns do not belong in a civilized society, and the reasons the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd amendment do not exist anymore. Guns do not save lives, doctors save lives. Guns encourage evil people to commit mass massacres. Regardless of how much health care services are provided, insane and shameless individuals always will be around, so providing guns to our citizenry is an irresponsible act that is causing mass massacres even in elementary schools. Good job Piers!!!!!!

    Sure he's entitled an opinion , but it shouldn't be on national TV . No offense to the British people at all , they are our best allies. But it's the whiny, foreigners like him I direct this to, if you don't like our laws & way of life - simply hop a plane across the pond & go home. If it wasn't for Americans with guns , he would have grown up eating bratwurst mit spaetzle und kraut.
