Morgan, who has long been a vocal advocate of new gun laws, told President Obama on Twitter that it was "time to act" in the wake of the massacre in Connecticut. He devoted his Friday show to the tragedy and brought on pro-advocates to make their case. Morgan noted that he had started his CNN show the week after Gabby Giffords was shot in Arizona, and that he was tired of being told that more guns would solve problems with violence.
"There are nearly 12,000 murders a year from guns in this country," he said. "When are you guys going to focus on that, and stop telling me the answer is more guns? It is not the answer! How many more kids have to die, before you guys say, 'we want less guns, not more?'"
