With Friday marking exactly six months since the devastating school shooting in Newtown, Conn., on Thursday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invites Jillian Soto and Theresa Rousseau to place America's gun culture into context, and to speak to the notion that assault weapon sales have increased since Sandy Hook:
"It just shows you how screwed up this country has become and how you can see someone walked into an elementary school and used that gun to kill 20 six and seven year olds," says Soto, whose sister Vicki [Soto] was one of the six teacher murdered on December 14. "It just shows how awful things are and how badly we need change. How badly we need to do something about this before another crazed man walks into an elementary school and opens fire."
Lauren Rousseau was another one of the Sandy Hook Elementary School teachers killed by Adam Lanza, and half a year since, her mother continues to fight for stricter laws in hopes of limiting future firearm death and violence:
"More average Americans, the almost 90 percent that seem to agree with gun registration, will speak up," Theresa Rousseau tells Piers Morgan. "We need to talk to our lawmakers. We need to send them emails, we need to call them on the telephone and let them know how we feel about this ... Whatever it takes to make them aware that we are paying attention to what is happening in Washington."
Tune in at 9 for the rest of Piers Morgan's primetime interview with women continuing to mourn loved ones lost six months ago Friday.
