Thank you, and goodnight.
On Thursday evening, Piers Morgan welcomed Sandy Phillips, the mother of Aurora shooting victim Jessica Ghawi, asking her and her husband Lonnie to share their reactions in the aftermath of recent remarks made by Sen. Bernie Herpin.
During a hearing on Wednesday, the Republican from Colorado offered the following comments in speaking of the Aurora shooting that cost Ghawi her life:
"As it turns out, that was maybe a good thing that he had a 100-round magazine because it jammed. If he had four, five, six 15-round magazines, there’s no telling how much damage he could have done until a good guy with a gun showed up."
Initially, Phillips simply couldn't believe Herpin's statement: FULL POST
As the world honors John. F. Kennedy's life and memory on the 50th anniversary of his death, tonight "Piers Morgan Live" seeks perspective from the former president's nephew, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr..
"I think one of the greatest legacies of President Kennedy was that sort of altered view of the United States that, you know, that we were a force for good, that we understood that corporate domination at home was the partner of imperialism and truculence abroad," he tells Piers Morgan. "We had to win over the world by our example, by living up to our ideals, by perfecting the union and not by force of arms and that we were going to be remembered, which was what President Kennedy used to say."

On the heels of ABC News correspondent Amy Robach's revelation of her recent breast cancer diagnosis, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Dr. Kristi Funk and Zoraida Sambolin to offer their personal and professional perspectives.
"Prevention does not yet exist," said Funk, who is Angelina Jolie's doctor. "So early detection is our best defense against this disease, and our only chance at a cure."
Sambolin, a breast cancer survivor, said it was Jolie who gave her the courage to announce her own diagnosis: FULL POST
On Monday evening Piers Morgan invited Hollywood veteran Corey Feldman to join him for a live, primetime interview that touched upon everything from drugs and alcohol, to fame, abuse, and the late Michael Jackson.
Well known for his work in such classics as "Stand by Me," "The Goonies," and "The Lost Boys," the 42-year-old former child star spoke openly about growing up in front of the camera:
"My story in and of itself is very tragic," he began. "I did have a very, very rough upbringing. I endured a lot of pain in my childhood. I didn't choose this life. It was chosen for me." FULL POST
As the president gave a press conference in the Rose Garden earlier Monday, a woman nearly fainted behind him. "Piers Morgan Live" invited Karmel Allison to the program to check in on her health and learn the finer details.
"Next thing I knew I was being caught by the president and thinking 'wow that just happened,'" Allison told Piers Morgan. "I am extremely embarrassed that I fainted but honored still to have been there."
On the heels of Monday's school shooting in Sparks, Nevada that left two dead including the shooter, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Amaya Newton and her mom Tabatha to offer their perspective.
Not only did Amaya witness the shooter, she knew him personally:
"He was really a nice kid. He would make you smile when you were having a bad day," she told Piers Morgan. Amaya said she believes he shot the teacher because "I saw him getting bullied a couple of times and I think he took out his bullying on it."
Tabatha struggled to see how the 12-year-old shooter didn't get any help from the school before opening fire: FULL POST
On Monday, Piers Morgan invited magician Criss Angel into his New York studio, asking the world famous illusionist if there exists an escape plan that can answer the government shutdown.
Seated across from the host, Angel expressed sadness over the current state of politics and the overall lack of bipartisan give-and-take:
"I deal with the subject of impossibility. And for me, it's always trying to find a solution, right," Angel stated. "And I just don't understand how we have, you know, grownups that are supposed to be running our country, not being able to find the solution...I don't know why there's no compromise. Why we're in this situation to begin with? It's just - it's a sad state for us."
At the end of the program, Angel rejoined Morgan, accessorizing his designer suit with an institution style straightjacket. FULL POST
