Charlie Sheen on guns, goddesses and the good advice from his father Martin Sheen

On Friday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed the always candid and unpredictable Charlie Sheen to the program.

The star of FX's "Anger Management" and one-time infamous monologist on topics such as "warlocks," "tiger blood" and "Vatican assassins" showed a less frenetic and more thoughtful side to his personality as he conversed with Piers Morgan during the hour-long program.

On the issue of gun control and gun ownership Sheen gave his thoughts on the semi-automatic rifle used during the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting. "We're not supposed to bury our children," said Sheen. "And it wouldn't have happened if that weapon wasn't involved."

Sheen also talked about some changes in his life since his last interview with Morgan including his parting of ways with the "Goddesses," his simultaneous co-habitation and relationships with model Natalie Kenly and adult film actress, Bree Olsen.

"It gets complicated," explained Sheen.

"They got to be the right women. And I think they have to know each other before they know you. I don't think you can just pick randomly and put them together and expect them to be perfect, because it doesn't work."

Sheen's father, actor Martin Sheen was also a topic of discussion and Sheen spoke about the time when his father expressed his concern for his son during the height of Sheen's public meltdown and career free fall in 2011.

"My reaction to that was really shameful, at the time," said Sheen. "Right now I'm very grateful."

"We're more friends than father-son," Sheen told Morgan about his current relationship with his father. "He's the guy I go to if there's something I can't figure out. There's a lot I still can't. So why not go to the people who have been there before you."

Watch the clips and listen to the interview as Sheen shares with Morgan how his father's great advice "just brought it down to basics" for the once troubled actor.

    Piers Morgan, I know you are a Brit but you need to study the history of the 2nd Amendment in the US. Guns were not intended in the 2nd Amendment for hunting or protecting ones home from intruders. It was for keeping a government from getting out of control by everyone having his or her own arms to band together and keep the government from being like Germany became. Don't get it twisted. Read the history of the amendment. Go to THE HISTORY OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT

    Get rid of Piers Morgan already. Is anyone looking at ratings at CNN?
