"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Louisville's Kevin Ware's gruesome basketball accident; Subway Good Samaritan and Michelle Shocked says she's not homophobic

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Sanjay Gupta and Charles Barkley discuss Louisville player's gruesome accident

On Monday evening, the day after American college basketball fans watched Louisville Cardinals player, Kevin Ware, suffer a gruesome leg injury, where the the bone in his right leg snapped and tore six inches through his skin, "Piers Morgan Live" invited CNN's Senior medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta to the program and former NBA basketball player and Turner sports analyst Charles Barkley to give their expert perspective on the event.

Gupta suggested a possible source for the accident was due to "stress fractures" noting, "stress fractures actually are things that can actually weaken the bone a bit as well. So if you put a big jump, a big horizontal and vertical jump on top of a awkward landing, with these stress fractures, I think that can all play a role."

Barkley was of a different opinion and remarked that Ware's injury was "just a fluke."

"That play is made a hundred times a game," said Barkley. "We don't know if he had a stress fracture or a weakening of the bone, but that play happens every trip up and down the court where you jump and you don't come down perfectly every time."

  • Morgan talks to the Subway Good Samaritan

Piers Morgan spoke with the "Subway Good Samaritan", Christopher Knafelc who jumped on to the subway tracks in Philadelphia to save a 63-year-old man who fell off the platform in front of an approaching train.

"It was very instinctive," said Knafelc on what he was thinking when he jumped on the tracks. "I think the bigger point here is the people that did not act because it really seems like the moral compass of this country has declined over the years."

  • Michelle Shocked says she is not homophobic

Singer-songwriter Michelle Shocked clarified her position on gay marriage and homosexuality.

"If you want to keep this simple for the audience, let me just give you a straight, no, I am not homophobic," said Shocked.

"I am, for the last ten years, so deeply in love with a man that the idea of living my life without him is impossible," said Shocked. "I know how much I love him and knowing that passion that I have for him would I ever want to deny that to anyone else? Absolutely not."

    To Peirs Morgan,
    There is a gun situation that is not being given attention....Real Assault rifles and machineguns. My friends are all business executives and professional people, so don't use my name. They tell me that these type of weapons are legal to own, but must be registered. However they also said that in 1986 the same politicians that are currently working so hard to ban military style weapons, banned the registration of these weapons. Why is this not a outrage? We need to know where all dangerous weapon are located. This is even more strange, as they tell me that these weapon types are okay to register by the NRA and other gun people. So why are we not registering these dangerous weapons??? When I expressed disbelief they took me to a couple of gun shops where these weapon types are sold. Each told me that when the registration was cut off, it was estimated there were still several million real machineguns floating around that were not registered. Why are we allowing this?? Why is there not a demand for these weapons to be located and registered?? Do we have to have another terrible incident? Hopefully you can help correct this problem by informing the public of this danger.
