As the gun debate continues as an important hot-button issue on Capitol Hill and among the American public, "Piers Morgan Tonight" spoke to Jay Laze, a pizzeria owner in Virginia Beach who gives customers a 15 percent discount if they bring their firearms into his restaurant.
The owner of All Around Pizzas and Deli told Piers Morgan that having gun owners in his store "actually makes me feel more safe."
"It makes me feel more safe because these are responsible people," said Laze. "And if a criminal decides to do anything funny, I have these people to back me up."
Neil Heslin and Stephen Grich also joined Tuesday evening's program to discuss their meeting with members of Congress regarding the assault weapons ban. Heslin's 6-year-old son was killed at Sandy Hook and Grich's son was also a tragic victim of gun violence, killed just days before Sandy Hook, during a home invasion near Clemson University.
Heslin noted, "I support the Second Amendment. And the Second Amendment also reads well regulated. It's clear that it hasn't been well regulated. If it was, we wouldn't be having the problems and the mass murders and the massacres that we've had such as Sandy Hook Elementary, which took my son Jesse's life."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Heslin reminds Laze and the "Piers Morgan Tonight" viewers that the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting were "innocent children" and "it's just unbelievable that it could happen."
