READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
As the nation continues to grapple with the on-going gun debate, this evening at 9 "Piers Morgan Tonight" invites Ray Kelly to add his unique insight into one of America's most-polarizing issues.
The Commissioner of the New York City Police Department, Kelly points to nationwide firearm legislation as an integral factor in truly addressing the situation:
"We need a comprehensive federal policy about guns, and all aspects of it," Kelly tells Piers Morgan. "Ninety percent of the guns we confiscate here in New York City are coming from out of state. We call it the "Iron Pipeline," up I-95, coming from southern states, to a great extent."
When the host suggests that certain politicians may be voting with career aspirations in mind, rather than truly serving the public, Kelly condemns such behavior:
"I don't think it's too much to ask our elected officials to vote your conscience, that's why we put them in office," says the longest serving police commissioner in New York City's history. "We'd like to think that sometimes people are going to just do the right thing. I certainly think that's what has to happen here. There's still way too much bloodshed."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in at 9 as Kelly and Morgan further address the gun issue in the United States.
