Piers Morgan told: 'Republic will rise again when you attempt to take our guns'

Self-proclaimed freedom fighter Alex Jones berated UK-born talk show host Piers Morgan tonight over his efforts to enforce gun control laws in the US.

In an angry tirade Jones, who co-created a petition to deport Morgan, told the CNN host that "the Republic will rise again when you attempt to take our guns."

Morgan has been campaigning against the ownership of assault rifles in America since a 20-year-old used such weapons in a school shooting spree that left 27 people dead.
