On Monday comedian and television host Bill Maher joined "Piers Morgan Tonight" for a candid and revealing interview. Touching upon everything from politics to film, the host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" also spoke to gun control, in the wake of the Ohio high school shootings:
"Do we have to adore them, do we have to love them so much? I look at guns like antibiotics," said Maher. "You know, maybe sometimes you need them, but I don't kiss my antibiotics, I don't polish them. I don't worship my amoxicillin. If I need it, it's there."
As the discussion continued, the satirical specialist recalled the Tuscon shootings that injured Gabrielle Giffords, taking issue with certain perspectives:
"I remember when she came back the Congress they said it was a great feel-good story. And I said, maybe we need a feel-bad story, to wake people up a little bit about guns.
