Piers Morgan on U.S. Gun Violence: Doing Nothing is Unconscionable

The mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon was the 294 mass shooting this year. Piers Morgan, the U.S. editor at large for TheDailyMail.com and the former host of "Piers Morgan Tonight" on CNN, has openly advocated stronger gun control laws, and in the process he's become an enemy of right wing conservatives. Morgan is now back in the United Kingdom, but he's still thinking about American gun violence. Today on The Takeaway, he argues that the NRA's worst enemy is knowledge, and that the movement to not name gunmen behind mass shootings is exactly what the NRA wants.
