In the aftermath of the horrific school shooting which cost 20 children their lives, this evening at 9 "Piers Morgan Tonight" continues to push the conversation on gun control, welcoming Dr. Mick North for his unparalleled perspective on firearms, specifically in relation to the murder of young kids.
In 1996, North's five-year-old daughter was among those who perished in the infamous mass school shooting in Dunblane, Scotland. Joining Piers Morgan from overseas, tonight's guest shared statistics that have come since the enacted gun ban following the Dunblane incident:
"Gun crime has been falling in England and Wales every year for the last eight years. In Scotland, it's [at] its lowest level for well over 20 years."
As many pro-gun voices are calling for less regulation, even suggesting firearms might make schools safer, North offers his assessment:
"I just do not understand the logic of that. If they arm the teachers does that mean they also have to provide the teachers with body armor?" he asked, seemingly rhetorically. "I understand the intruder on Friday had body armor to protect himself from being shot at. Do the children have to have body armor? How far do we have to go? The idea that because the problem is guns, the answer is guns, is simply ridiculous. I think it reflects more that some people take every opportunity to expand the gun trade."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as North further explains his stance on American gun legislation, having been instrumental in changing such laws in his home country.
