I'm seriously against the right to have military style assault weapons to blow kids brains to pieces in schools.BEN SHAPIRO, BREITBART NEWS: I till don't understand your opinion on this. You say that you're against military style assault weapons, but you're OK with handguns. Handguns kill 6,000 people a year, assault weapons kill 300.MORGAN: Well, they're both a big problem: handguns in Chicago, and assault weapons with mass shootings.SHAPIRO: You're from the UK, why don't we just go with a full gun ban?MORGAN: Well, we've discussed this, the UK has 40-50 gun murders a year, the U.S. has 12,000. Why don't we try it our way?
