On Tuesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed New York Times columnist, Nicholas Kristof and Southern Poverty Law Center's Mark Potok to the program to give their perspective on recent issues concerning gun rights and gun control.
Piers Morgan and his guests also discussed the infamously heated exchange between Morgan and radio host Alex Jones on Monday evening.
"As somebody who favors more gun control, I really hope that Alex Jones does more TV," said Kirstof. "I think, for your average Middle American in making the case, because people saw somebody who was foaming at the mouth, and they think, you know, this kind of person shouldn't be having - I think he said 50 guns around."
Potok also found little validity in Jones' on-air rant. "The important thing about what Alex Jones is about, what he represents, is that he has pushed out completely baseless conspiracy theories to literally tens of millions of Americans out there," said Potok.
Later on the program, Morgan's all-star panel comprising of attorney Gloria Allred, author Buzz Bissinger and Huff Post Live's Abby Huntsman gave their take on gun rights and gun control.
"If politicians had a spine," said Allred, "and stood up to the gun lobby and to those who who are very, very extreme in their views, as Mr. Jones was, instead of just cowering and afraid of losing the next election, we would have changes in gun laws that we would need. We would have what you suggest, for example, about closing the loopholes for gun shows."
Huntsman noted the influence of local communities on legislation saying "It really has to do with these legislators going back to their local towns, their local town hall meetings, and hearing from people that they represent, they want this done. It's really going to come from the America people saying, we're outraged, and make sure the conversation continues."
Bissinger took particular issue with the 2008 Supreme Court interpretation of the Second Amendment. "It seems to me, frankly, that a 10-year-old could read the Second Amendment and say, you have the right to bear arms for the formation of a militia. I think the 2008 - and I'm saying this as a layman. The 2008 Supreme Court ruling was a travesty. At the very least, it should be a state's right."
