Much like media mogul Rupert Murdoch, CNN talk show host Piers Morgan is also saying that the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy should be the clearest indication that gun control is a must in the US.

Check out the video below to hear what he has to say on the issue.

Morgan dedicated his show to the Newtown tragedy, asking his guests to discuss whether gun control could actually prevent tragedies like this one from ever happening.

He for one is convinced that this is the case, even though not everybody will agree with him.

“There are nearly 12,000 murders a year from guns in this country. When are you guys going to focus on that, and stop telling me the answer is more guns?” he asked.

“It is not the answer! How many more kids have to die, before you guys say, ‘we want less guns, not more?’” Morgan continued, advocating for the need of gun control.
