(Newser) – Things got pretty heated on Piers Morgan Tonight as the host came face-to-face with the man who started a petition to deport him for supporting gun control. Morgan barely got a word in as conspiracy theorist talk show host Alex Jones attacked him as a "hatchet man of the new world order," and warned the British citizen that "1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms," Mediaite reports. Jones dismissed Morgan's argument that Britain has far fewer gun deaths than the US and accused Morgan of fleeing his homeland.

During his pro-gun rant, Jones, who said he "probably" owned around 50 guns, mocked Morgan's British accent and said drugs like Prozac were to blame for recent mass shootings. After the interview, Morgan described Jones as rambling and unhinged. "We lawyers refer to people like that not as witnesses, but as exhibits," said Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, Morgan's next guest. "He was an exhibit, like a piece of evidence. You see him speaking and you say to yourself, 'I don't want that man to have a gun.'"

Thank you Alex, for showing the fugitive criminal Piers Morgan what is meant by: "belligerant claimant in person." The powers that be are trying to fraud Americans out of their God given rights by claiming they hold them under U.S. Corporate contracts of adhesion. Obama's so called legal education is seriously lacking when he thinks he can play god & rob WE THE PEOPLE of our unalienable/inalieanable rights over fictitious contracts that are as valid as his Hawaiian birth certificate. Isn't it true megal'O'maniac that before a contract is binding that the parties must have full disclosure & knowledge of said contract for it to be a valid contract? It is quite obvious that the government edu sys conveniently left out what makes a valid contract. And yes 'O', ignorance of the law is an excuse, as revealed when the Roman Senate passed that very law that ignorance is an excuse when Nero posted his new laws so high on the pillars nobody could read them! Alex, Your point about prescription drugs killing almost 200,000 ppl last year was excellent; I thought Fugitive Criminal Morgan was going to piss himself! Too funny! It's very scary when one considers that 60% of Americans including children are on prescription drugs; that every six out of ten ppl you pass on the highways are on drugs! Makes me wonder how many intentional deaths are caused by these prescriptos behind the wheel? I would much rather see more public transportation, (bullet trains) than importing more & more vehicles that kill almost 50,000 victims a year! I would have answered the mentally challenged Morgan's inquiry about the U.K.'s gun deaths with, "35 Piers? Isn't hat 35 unarmed victims murdered in a country where guns are banned? Good thing you moved to the States, Piers, where you have the right to, and in your case, 'much needed' armed body guards!"

That's the gun lobby loosing the battle right there in a nut shell. Another poor showing by a insane advocate without a single positive point and then threatens with violence and anarchy to boot. His mental health is questionable?

That, my friends, is how you go on national television and make a complete ass of yourself. He did not make one coherent point that entire fifteen minutes.
