This country is nuts.

You want to deport someone over your precious guns?

Do we still need a militia?

Last time I checked we had a National Guard, Coast Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force & Marines.

We don't need Bubba and his musket to defend us against the North Koreans, Chinese, terrorists, etc.

The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C.§ 1385) passed on June 16, 1878 after the end of Reconstruction. The Act prohibits most members of the federal uniformed services (the Army, Air Force, and State National Guard forces when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement police or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property (states, their counties and municipal divisions) in the former Confederate states.

The statute generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the United States National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. The Coast Guard is exempt from the Posse Comitatus Act.

The Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act substantially limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement.

We need a militia AND a National Guard?

Our enemies are scared of a militia?

The rest of the world has criminals, right?
Burglars breaking into houses. Rapists. Murderers. Muggers.

How come they get by without our firearms per capita?

At least 300 million firearms and a population of 330 million.

Why are we the ONLY country in the world with so many guns?

Does this ever cross your mind?

I find the petition very distasteful. The man has a protected right to comment as he sees fit on the second amendment. Protecting the second amendment by infringing the first is duplicitous.

That didn't stop Delta Force in Waco or the Georgia prison riots.
Laws, like rules, are meant to be broken by the government.

He is not covered under the Constitution. He is a foreign national.

You're actually wrong. As long as Piers Morgan is in the US, he's afforded the same rights as every green card holder or citizen, except the right to vote.

Ever wonder if Delta and the military units were requested legally due to their specialized tactics?

As many also have noted, the Insurrection Act is an exception to Posse Comitatus. The Insurrection Act allows the President to use federal armed forces to enforce the law in three instances: at the request of a state legislature or, if the legislature is not in session, a governor; either to enforce federal law or when a rebellion or unlawful "assemblage" precludes enforcement of the law through judicial proceedings; and to suppress "any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy" if a state fails to protect the constitutional rights of its citizens. Actions taken under the Insurrection Act do not constitute martial law. Martial law is far more sweeping, and the President may impose martial law only in circumstances more extreme than those required to invoke the Insurrection Act.
The Insurrection Act has been invoked rarely in the last 60 years. Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy invoked the act four times between 1957 and 1963 to enforce desegregation laws in Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama. President George H.W. Bush invoked the act in 1989, federalizing National Guard units and deploying the 16th Military Police Brigade to restore order in the Virgin Islands in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo. Finally, the first President Bush, at the request of the governor of California, invoked the Insurrection Act in 1992 to empower a federal joint task force to enforce the law during riots in Los Angeles. In the last instance, the joint task force commander prohibited his soldiers, including federalized National Guard soldiers, from performing law-enforcement missions, even though the President had authorized them to enforce the law.
