As the nation continues to grapple with the on-going gun debate, this evening at 9 "Piers Morgan Tonight" invites Ray Kelly to add his unique insight into one of America's most-polarizing issues.

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan continues the conversation on gun control and firearm legislation, welcoming an array of experts from both sides of the debate, including New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. While Kelly would like to see an assault weapons ban he also believes there is a larger issue at stake.
Also, as part of a segment that features a pair of repeat guests, Conservative talk radio show host Dana Loesch will debate the Second Amendment, and gun issues in general, with "New York Times" columnist Charles Blow.
In addition, Story County, Iowa Sheriff Paul Fitzgerald will join Morgan to share their insights into the nation's most-polarizing issues. Fitzgerald, among other sheriffs and police chiefs, attended Monday's gun meeting with President Barack Obama.
Meanwhile, John Stephens will join the show as well, providing the unique perspective that comes from being the mayor of Ilion, NY, home to the Remington gun factory.
