Piers Morgan absolutely goes off on pro-gun campaigner on Good Morning Britain

He's been praised for his response to it...

Unsurprisingly, one of the lead segments on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday was a discussion about Monday's mass shooting by Stephen Paddock in Las Vegas that left 59 people dead and 527 injured.

Piers Morgan got in a heated debate with pro-gun campaigner Dan Roberts, especially after Roberts said he didn't want to see any gun-law changes following the massacre in Las Vegas on Monday.

Morgan ranted at Roberts saying, "Time after time after these massacres, you come on this programme - you used to come on my programme in America - and you look us in the eye and say, 'The only answer is to do nothing - there's nothing wrong with guns, it's the people!'"

He went on to to speak about America's gun laws and questioned what will be done to change the laws?

To which Roberts replied, "We're not going to do nothing, hopefully." When this was met with anger and incredulity by Morgan, Roberts said that he didn't believe in restricting the the rights of hundreds of millions because of the actions of one man.

Morgan then produced a Kinder Egg, and outlined how they were banned in some American states because they're deemed a health hazard, but guns are not.

"I simply say to you Dan, time after time you come on here and you say that the only answer is there's something wrong with people," Morgan said.

"Here we have the archetypal gun holder, but because of your insane gun laws he can arm himself with 42 weapons and mow down 600 people. What are you going to do about it?"

Morgan has been irate since the shootings on Monday as he launched a series of tweets criticising Donald Trump and the American gun laws.
