THE American radio host and pro-gun advocate Alex Jones, creator of the 'Deport Piers Morgan' petition, has given the British presenter both barrels on his CNN show.
Jones was invited on Piers Morgan Tonight to discuss his role in creating a petition to deport Morgan because of his views on gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre.
The debate, aired on CNN last night, soon descended into a wild rant from the outspoken Texan who told Morgan that taking away guns would lead to government tyranny:
"I'm here to tell you — 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!"
Jones, a conspiracy theorist who believes the US government was involved in the September 11 attacks, also claimed that the recent rape and murder of an Indian student could have been prevented if she had access to a gun.
