Need to Know News: Theater shooting suspect's home rigged to harm or kill; Pakistani spy chief to demand end of drones

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For July 24, 2012 – Theater shooting suspect's home rigged to harm or kill, Pakistani spy chief to demand end of drones, and Jackson drama unfolds at family mansion...

• Theater shooting suspect's home rigged to harm or kill: "The suspect in last week's deadly shooting rampage at a crowded Colorado movie theater boobytrapped his apartment with more than 30 homemade grenades and 10 gallons of gasoline, a law enforcement official who viewed video from inside the apartment told CNN Monday night."

Pakistani spy chief to demand end of drones: "The new chief of Pakistan's spy agency will urge the United States to end drone strikes on Pakistani soil and identify targets that the country's security forces can then attack, a senior intelligence official said."

• On Twitter, a curious spike for Mitt Romney: "The Republican presidential nominee's account on the site, which had been gaining followers at a clip of about 3,000 to 4,000 a day, appears to have gained more than 116,000 followers Friday and another 24,000 on Saturday."

• AT&T, Cisco lead stock sell-off: "U.S. stocks declined sharply Tuesday as a weak reading on U.S. manufacturing, a dull batch of earnings reports and ongoing worries about Europe dampened the mood on Wall Street."

Jackson drama unfolds at family mansion: "Feuding among Michael Jackson's family reached a new level Monday when a 'scuffle' erupted at Katherine Jackson's home in Calabasas, California, according a sheriff's spokesman."

    Regarding Piers interview with Bloomberg on guns. Bloomberg is extremely admirable. This was an absolutely fantastic interview on an extremely important question in America and about America. Piers did a SUPER job of pushing hard on this issue with other guests. He is on solid ground...and in my book...his great rating as an interviewer soared even higher for the fact that he pushed hard concrete answers, didn't stand for illogical bull. I am cominng back for
    Michael Moore tonight and will be keeping an appreciative eye open on what Piers is doing from now on!!!!

    Regarding the Piers interview with Bloomberg and the following guest author presenting another view, Piers was downright rude and unprofessional by his continual interruptions and denying the guest author to present his views clearly and completely. I disagree that Piers did a SUPER job, he did a TERRIBLE job. A good interviewer should allow his/her guests, regardless of agreeing or not to their point view, to relate their position. It is obvious Piers Morgan does not understand our American culture and the rights guaranteed to us by the 2nd Amendment. If I had been treated like that I would have picked up myself and left the interview. If he is that adamant and close minded on these kind of issues, maybe he ought pack his bags and return to England and provide someone else an opening for a job on CNN. Thank you for listening.

    I found your interview with a John Lott jr was probably one of the worst i have ever seen period.
    You invited this man to speak you asked him questions but yet would not let him answer that is not very American eh .
    You come to this country to live here correct than you should understand the right to speech and sir you job is to ask the questions not do all the speaking . In all the years i have watched cnn this was probably the most disgusting interview i have ever seen . You are in the United States of America best learn what that means to live in the country this is not England sir .
    Thank you for listening

      I fully agree with Frank Massari's comment. Don't invite a guest if you are not going to let him speak! I really wanted to listen to what the expert, not Piers.

    Anorher lame interview by Piers Morgan tonight with an irrelevant Michael Moore. It will predictably be about gun control. Moore still has armed security guards so the hypocracy continues.

    85 people died when a gunman opened fire in a Norway island youth camp. Norway has strict gun laws . Recently in Toronto, Canada where I live 19 people were hurt in gun fire, 3 critically. Canada has strict gun laws. 18 people died in Germany when an expelled pupil went on a shooting spree at his school. Germany has strict gun laws. Perhaps, in each of these cases, if a trained adult was carying a gun, not so many people would have died.

    Gun laws do not protect anyone, nor does the lack of gun laws kill anyone.

    I watched your program July 23, 2012, wherein you were talking about the theatre masacre. I felt you got wrapped up in the tradgedy and let your personal feelings take over, at which point all reason was gone. Due to a heart felt tragedy, you adamantly supported a possible tragedy in the making, being the removal of the 2nd Amendment Rights.

    When the Nazi party came into power one of the first rules they passed is to disarm the German population Once disarmed they were the only ones who had the guns. They did away with the Communist movement . built 20 thousand death camps of deal with those who they deemed unfit or were against them. In every Revolution be it Russia, China, Iran, Cambodia, The French Revolution the citizens were unarmed and paid a dear price for it. There is a reason why the second amendment was placed by our founding fathers. it is time to listen to their wisdom.

    Why didn't you have the balls to point out that Jamie Rohrs is a punk COWARD who dropped his 4 month old baby on the ground and ran away, leaving his girlfriend and children at the mercy of the shooter? A black teenager helped them, but YOU gave the COWARD an interview and didn't havve the guts to call him a coward to his face. GROW SOME BALLS!!
