READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.
As part of a continued discussion on potential legislation surrounding firearms, and in front of a live studio audience, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Debbie Wasserman Schultz to share her personal perspective:
"It's disgusting. It's unconscionable," said the Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, referencing more than a dozen GOP senators who have threatened to filibuster a gun control vote. "It shows how cowardly they are, because the reason they won't give Gabby Giffords a vote, the folks in Aurora a vote, the people of Columbine and Newtown a vote, is because they're afraid, because they don't want to face the 90 percent of Americans who support making sure we can close those loopholes and prevent bad people from getting guns."
As Tuesday's program continued, Piers Morgan welcomed a panel of educated experts and newsmakers charged with further debating the notion of mandated background checks as associated with the purchase of guns.
"The ones that we currently have in place, Piers, have been woefully, painfully, poorly executed," said Republican strategist and pollster Kellyanne Conway. "We don't want to do things that just make us feel better. We want to do things that work and actually protect our children."
Abby Huntsman, meanwhile, blamed the current standstill on what she deems to be a misappropriated focus in Washington:
"I think this comes down to a number of politicians that are, frankly, more concerned about the re-election than they are about what is right for this country," said the HuffPost Live host and producer. "It's really unfortunate."
Huntsman's colleague, Marc Lamont-Hill, cautioned against speaking about the feelings in another man's heart:
"Let's not assume that everybody is operating in bad faith," said Huntsman's HuffPost Live co-host. "If we want to have a real conversation, then we can't assume that everyone who disagrees with us, operates in bad faith."
Meanwhile, as talks of a potential North Korean missile strike continue to ratchet up global fear, reporter Kyung Lah expalined the ways in which these newest threats are different from those in the past:
"The threats from Pyongyang are now coming from that young unpredictable leader [Kim Jong-un], he is untested. We simply don't know him. The rules are very different," said Lah, who was stationed in Seoul, South Korea. "Also the threats are different. They have been rapid fire, day after day after day. There's been a ratcheting up. There has been a rapid fire progression of them. Back now what appears to be the good old days of Kim Jong-Il, they were - they were a little more spaced out so it's a bit more unpredictable."
