In the aftermath of another fatal shooting, this time inside the Clackamas Town Center Mall in Happy Valley, Oregon, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Faye Aleshire, a childhood friend of the gunman Jacob Tyler Roberts.
"I didn't believe Jake was capable of such a thing," said Aleshire. "We all knew him as a kind person. He was generous, he was the guy - if you were having a bad day he could make you laugh no matter what."
"Jake was the last person on my mind that I could have ever thought who would do something like this."
Sandy Phillips, the mother of Jessica Ghawi - a victim of the Aurora shooting, and her husband Lonnie also spoke to Piers Morgan on Wednesday and shared their thoughts on guns in America in light of this most recent incident.
"It's a horrible state of affairs we're in in America right now and it really needs to be addressed," Sandy said. "I too believe in the Second Amendment, I too am a gun owner and so is my husband and to not address these issues is ludicrous."
Lonnie chimed in, "We are guns owners and we believe in the Second Amendment but we believe that there needs to be a dialogue, our country needs to talk about some type of gun control."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Piers Morgan and his guests continue their discussion on what may have lead to Roberts' devastating actions.
