Piers Morgan interviews Alex Jones on gun control

CNN's Piers Morgan sat down to a fiery interview last night with the radio host calling for Morgan to be deported over his support of gun control.

Alex Jones backed a petition on the White House website advocating that Morgan to be deported "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."

After the Newtown, Connecticut shooting, Morgan has been vocal about a nationwide ban on semi-automatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

During the interview, Jones loudly argued, "I'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms," said Jones. "It doesn't matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street begging for them to have their guns taken! We will not relinquish them! Do you understand? And that's why you're going to fail!"

Morgan later tried to ask Jones how many gun murders were in Britain last year and Jones retorted,
"England has a lot lower gun crime rate, because you took all the guns. But you've got hordes of people burning down cities and beating old ladies' brains out every day."

"Let's try again. How many gun murders were there in Britain last year?" Morgan again asked.

"How many chimpanzees can dance on the head of a pin?" Jones replied.
