Upon the backdrop of an evolving breaking news story out of Washington, D.C., in which a dozen people have been killed as part of a mass firearm incident, this afternoon Piers Morgan broached the situation with his guest, Rick Warren.
The American evangelical Christian pastor and author recently lost his son to a self-inflicted gunshot wound, a devastating ordeal which has left him mourning for those impacted by Monday's military base shooting:
"When I heard about those deaths, at the naval yard, the first thing I did was get down on my knees and pray for those families, of the victims, those who died, and those who are wounded," said Warren, speaking of a community currently battling emotions that are all too familiar to him, and his wife, Kay. "My heart went out to them."
Watch the above clip for more of Warren's thoughts, including his position on gun control. Then, for the entire, hour-long interview with the senior pastor of Saddleback Church – currently the eighth-largest church in the United States – tune in to CNN Tuesday at 9.
