Newt Gingrich on gun legislation: "We believe each step down the road leads to the next step and the next step"

On the heels of the latest gun-related tragedy, as Saturday saw a 15-year-old New Mexico boy murder his parents and three of his siblings, on Thursday evening Piers Morgan welcomed back recurring guest Newt Gingrich, who joined the program live, bringing along his signature brand of candor and insight.

As the "gun debate" continues to pulse through the nation as one of America's most divisive and polarizing issues, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host further explained his stance on precisely which type of firearms he finds to be most-concerning:

"It is the high-powered guns of any variety which can fire 30, or 40, or more rounds in less than a minute that can cause mass murder, that would be my primary concern," said Morgan.

Defending the views of those who oppose an increase in gun legislation, Gingrich detailed why Morgan is facing so much resistance: FULL POST

Clips from Last Night: The climate change debate and Dwight Yoakam on guns in America

As an extreme cold snap continued to traverse the Midwest and Eastern United States, "Piers Morgan Tonight," welcomed guests Michael Brune and Marc Morano on Wednesday evening to discuss one of the priority topics for the Obama administration, climate change.

"The reality is that extreme weather is here," said Brune, the executive director of the Sierra Club. "The science is settled."

"We noticed that last year we had record numbers of wildfires throughout the Mountain West," explained Brune. "Sixty-one percent of the country suffered a crippling drought. We had Superstorm Sandy with a 1,000-mile diameter storm hitting the east coast."

Meanwhile Morano, the editor-in-chief of Climatedepot.com was of a different opinion and noted, "Evidence is everywhere when you look for extremes. But the bottom line is we have always had extreme weather."

And in response to Morano's perspective, Brune replied, "I haven't met Marc. I'm sure he's a nice guy. He's not a climate scientist. He runs a website that's financed by Chevron and Exxon."

Later in the program, country music singer, songwriter and actor, Dwight Yoakam sat down with Piers Morgan in studio where the two discussed another hot-button issue, guns in America. FULL POST
