KANSAS CITY, Mo. — He says he loves America as a “second home,” but CNN anchor Piers Morgan said he would consider deporting himself if U.S. gun laws didn’t change, according to an OPED he wrote that appeared in the Daily Mail on Saturday.

Morgan cited the recent deadly shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Conn. as “the hideous effect of the gun.”

Morgan also mention this summer’s Aurora, Colo. shooting where 70 people were hurt and 12 died.

“To me, this is a warped, twisted logic that bears no statistical analysis and makes no sense. Do you fight drug addiction with more cocaine? Alcoholism with more Jack Daniel’s? Of course not,” he said.

As of Sunday evening, more than 94,000 people have signed an online petition to have him deported — and they could soon have their wish.
