CNN talk show host Piers Morgan has been under siege since he passionately spoke out for gun control in the wake of the gun-shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14.
Morgan's advocacy has led gun-owners and Second Amendment supporters to petition the White House to deport the British native back to the United Kingdom. Last night, while millions of Americans were hoping the BCS Championship game would turn into a legitimate event, Morgan did an inventive bit of counter-programming: he booked the Libertarian and extremely paranoid radio talk show host Alex Jones to talk about gun-control. Sparks flew, though calling this a debate would be a misnomer. It was more of a harangue coming from the — at times — out of control Jones.
"The Second Amendment isn't there for duck hunting," said Jones. "It's there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs."
He went on: "1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. Doesn't matter how many lemmings you get out there on the street begging for them to have their guns taken from them. We will not relinquish them, do you understand?"
