Guns, guns, guns: Alex Jones vs Piers Morgan, plus Jon Stewart

by Toby Manhire / 10 January, 2013
Video: Pro-gun angry man lets rip on Piers Morgan's CNN show.
Many find UK tabloid editor turned US TV host Piers Morgan difficult to like - loathsome even.

But he's won many over with his campaign against liberal US gun laws in the wake of the Newtown shootings.

The success of the campaign could be measured, perhaps, in the emergence of a petition calling for Morgan to be deported to Britain for his stance.

One of the men behind the petition, Alex Jones, a campaigner and radio show host, has just appeared on Morgan's programme. He's all rage and finger-wave from the start.

Via Politico, here's the exchange. It's kind of enthralling.




Update: And if you haven't yet seen Jon Stewart on the subject, drop everything and watch it now. At his best, he's a class above just about everything everywhere.
