Montel Williams on America's relationship with guns: "Violence is a part of our society"

On Wednesday evening, television and radio host Montel Williams joined Piers Morgan for an engaging and lively discussion on gun control, multiple sclerosis and his upcoming trip to Chile. Williams spoke passionately about how America needs to "get a grip with its current state of depression."

"Because the gun really isn't the problem," said Williams. "The gun is just one avenue."

"I'm a gun owner," the former Marine said. "I was trained by the military. Why would you want to take away my gun? I'm not going to go out and blow somebody up, but why can't we change the way we allow people to buy them?"

Williams said "violence is a part of our society" but he stressed the need to tone down the "rhetoric" that, in his mind, is encouraging "hate, discontent, [and] anger."

He shared with Morgan his feelings on the shooter that killed 12 and wounded 58 in an Aurora, CO movie theater recently:

"Can we calm down some of the rhetoric and remember that there are people like this young man who walked in and shot up that movie theater who's a schizophrenic, at least alleged to be?" asked Williams. "And if he is, they don't understand the difference between rhetoric and can't filter it. Can we help a little bit of that? That's the bigger discussion."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interview, as Williams explains why he wants to see more gun control.
