Survivors of the Clackamas shooting speak out on guns in America

Tonight, Piers Morgan talked with two of the survivors of the Clackamas shooting that occurred last night in Happy Valley, Oregon. Allan Fonseca helped Jocelyn Lay escape from the Macy's when they began to hear bullets fly. Now Morgan is looking for answers why semi-automatic rifles are legal in America after this latest tragedy.

"I feel like that there is not enough consequences in the United States and unfortunately it starts from the home and the home is destructing," said Lay. "It's an unfortunate situation and something has to change."

"It's dangerous because a lot of people are allowed to have guns," Fonseca said. "There is a more deep rooted thing that needs to be pointed out and it's that, what would cause a young man like the one that did the shooting to do what he did? It isn't so much just the guns but what is really going on in our society?"

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Morgan searches for answers as to why Jacob Tyler Roberts killed two people before taking his own life.

Barbra Streisand's fantasy dinner party

Coming up soon, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes one of the most iconic singers and actresses of our time, Barbra Streisand. Piers Morgan sits down with Streisand for a rare interview as the two look back on her lengendary career, on screen and stage, and look forward to her newest acting role in the film "Guilt Trip."

So as we head into the holiday season where family and friends often gather around the table for a feast, Morgan asks the 70-year-old to dream up a dinner party with guests from any time period. First on her list? "Albert Einstein," she says. "I'd like to meet him." A dinner party with some of the greats from history would not be complete without Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh.

"You'd have to put him [Van Gogh] on your left, right?" the host asks. "No, he could be on my - no, no I'd put him across," she corrects herself. Now that the two have named a couple of painters and a scientist, Morgan asks the entertainer to name an entertainer in history.

"Besides Marlon [Brando]?" Streisand asks. "Marlon, he is a definite," they both agree. As the duo move on to select one living person the host can't help but ask, "Who's the greatest living human being?" FULL POST
