A petition was launched to expel Morgan from the US after he called for increased gun control and labelled the executive director of Gun Owners of America Larry Pratt "unbelievably stupid" in the wake of Pratt's pro-gun response to the tragic school shooting in Newtown.
The petition was signed by over 100,000 people, easily passing the 25,000 signature threshold required to trigger a response from the White House.
The creator, Alex Jones, made a highly-publicised appearance on Piers Morgan's show this week, where he accused the presenter of being part of the 'New World Order'.
However, the Obama administration rejected calls to deport Morgan in a statement, citing the First Amendment - namely, the right to freedom of speech.
Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary, wrote: "Let's not let arguments over the Constitution's Second Amendment violate the spirit of its First. President Obama believes that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms.
"However, the Constitution not only guarantees an individual right to bear arms, but also enshrines the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press - fundamental principles that are essential to our democracy.
"Americans may disagree on matters of public policy and express those disagreements vigorously, but no-one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the Second Amendment - or any other matter of public concern."
Carney also cited a recent quote from Obama, where he re-iterated his support for the Second Amendment, but said that he is "betting that the majority - the vast majority - of responsible, law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war".
