Michael Bloomberg on stronger gun laws: "I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say we're going to go on strike"

This evening, Piers Morgan invited Mayor Michael Bloomberg to join him in studio for an honest and revealing discussion in the aftermath of Friday's deadly shooting in Aurora, CO.

In a primetime exclusive interview, the head of the executive branch of New York City's government provided his solution for implementing stricter gun laws in America:

"I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say we're going to go on strike," Bloomberg told the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "We're not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg on gun control: "Across this country, mayors in every city have to address the guns on the street issue"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Mayor Michael Bloomberg for a candid commentary on gun control.

On the heels of Friday's deadly shooting in Aurora, CO, the head of the executive branch of New York City's government feels a certain personal accountability when the topic turns towards bettering the nation:

"I have a responsibility, just like you do, just like everybody does in this country, to try to address the key issues," he tells Piers Morgan. "You and I can't solve the problem, but we can demand that those elected officials who are - or want to be in charge, have a solution to the problem."
