Alex Jones on guns in America: "The Republic will rise again when you attempt to take our guns"

Tonight, Piers Morgan returned to the host's chair and addressed the official White House petition created to deport the British television journalist and television host.

Alex Jones, co-creator of the petition, joined Morgan live in studio as he explained why he wants Morgan deported. "We did it to point out that this is globalism and the mega banks that control the planet and brag that they've taken over in Bloomberg, AP, Reuters, you name it, brag that they are going to get our guns as well."

During the interview, Jones defended his view of gun rights and ownership stating "The Second Amendment isn't there for duck hunting, it's there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs."

Jones also supported his view of "more guns less crime" by referring to the recent violent crime of gang rape in India. "You can't ban the iron rods, the guns, the iron rods, Piers, didn't do it. The tyrants did it."

"1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms," Jones passionately claimed. "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?"

"The establishment knows no matter how much propaganda, the Republic will rise again when you attempt to take our guns."

Watch clip and listen to the heated interview as Jones tells Morgan, "don't try to do what your ancestors did before."

Tonight: Piers Morgan returns for a live discussion on "Guns in America," faces co-creator of White House petition

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan returns to a familiar position: that of the host's chair. But after time away on holiday, Morgan also returns with his familiar position on gun control, that of respecting the Second Amendment while calling for stricter legislation.

Never shy with his stance, Morgan has regularly voiced his opinion, engaging in spirited debate, and dedicating a series of programs to an issue he feels is paramount for the country.

His controversial views have raised the ire and eyebrows of many, resulting in an official White House petition, calling for the British television presenter to be deported, claiming he's attacking the U.S. Constitution and undermining the Bill of Rights.

In response to these accusations, Morgan penned his own document – in the U.K.'s Daily Mail – in which he said "Although I love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would, as a concerned parent first – and latterly, of a one-year-old daughter who may attend an American elementary school like Sandy Hook in three years’ time – seriously consider deporting myself."

This evening at 9, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host will come face to face with the co-creator of the petition, Alex Jones. To hear him discuss the petition, and explain his strong beliefs on "Guns in America," watch the above video from earlier today during which Morgan appeared with live with CNN's Brooke Baldwin.

Then, tune in tonight to see Morgan and Jones debate the merits of his deportation, and also hear various other mass shooting victims and survivors speak live on the polarizing topic.
