On Tuesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed a live studio audience along with a full collection of guests to discuss the most important topics on the mind of Americans as President Barack Obama begins his new term in office.
At the top of the program, Piers Morgan discussed the news of the day including a new school shooting, this time at the North Harris campus of Lone Star College where three people including a school maintenance worker were injured.
Morgan spoke to Lone Star college student and EMT trainee Mark Zaragoza who, while treating the injured, realized he was caring for one of the shooters.
"When we got to the front of the campus, I found out that one of the gentlemen that I was trying to treat wounds on was the suspected shooter," said Zaragoza.
Later, author Suzanna Hupp joined the program and voiced her staunch support for gun ownership by using the argument of suicide.
"You are not going to bring down suicide numbers by having less guns," said Hupp. And when Morgan pointed out the statistic that "in countries like Australia, where they brought in strict gun control the suicide rate involving guns plummeted," Hupp simply responded, "Well, suicide rate involving guns, yes. But not suicides."
Watch the clips and listen to the interview as Hupp argues that a gun is "something that puts me on equal footing with gang members."
