    I would like to see a moderated debate between Sean Hannity and Piers Morgan on "Meet the Press", a neutral meeting place. Mr. Morgan needs to face someone who is sensible about guns but is also used to being on television. In the last few days Mr. Morgan has brought guests that really are not used to being on national television and then went about the task of decimating them over gun ownership. Mr. Morgan has a very lopsided view of guns primarily because you hired a non-American to have a talk show on American television.
    What happened in Connecticut is an absolute nightmare and heartbreak for the victims families, we need decisive action from our nations leaders not knee-jerk commentary from a non-American like Mr. Morgan. The sad part is, a lot of people really think he knows what he's talking about.
    Thank you.

      Pat,
      I understand your views of Mr. Morgan being a little too over zealous with gun owners; BUT, what does the fact that he is not a born-American got to do with anything?? He could be from Portland, Oregon, or Louisville, KY and still have the views he has!!!! It's just a matter of a talk show host (remember, he's not a reporter or news anchor), letting his raw emotions, a few days after a horrible, horrible national incident, get in the way of calmly sticking to the facts.

    A security guard should be in every school and kindergartens.!

    As there is in Israel - every school and kindergartens in Israel has a security with a gun to protect the children!!
    Need to change the constitution – all one needs to do a psychological evaluation before he gets a gun license

    You know, I used to like and respect CNN. However, the coverage of this terrible event has filled me with disgust. Far too much time is spent repeating the same news over and over again. The interviews with children, parental consent or not, should NEVER take place. CNN's blatant push over gun control was tastelessly brought into this tragedy. It's something that needs discussed, but not now and it should not be part of CNN's agenda. It's almost as if you have turned into the anti-Fox! Please, please return to the days when you were a news organization. I want to trust and respect CNN again.
