PIERS MORGAN (CO-HOST): When Americans hear the word "control," they think instinctively federal government control and it alienates any chance of any compromise. Gun safety is the way this should be debated. How do you make it safer? How do you stop these loopholes, these guys slipping through the net? This is obviously a catastrophic failure. 

In Maine, they have yellow flags, not red flags. Why? Why -- why don't you just have a red flag system all over the country. You have 400 million-plus guns in circulation, a million new guns are sold every month in America. This problem's going to get worse not better. And at some point, as your friend, you know, the great ally, I simply say you've got to do something more to stop this. You can't keep having the groundhog day of these people with these semiautomatic rifles going into civilian areas and gunning people to pieces. Can you? 

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): As your friend, respectfully, we have these guns because of you -- because of your country and your king and we haven't had that problem with a king since then. With respect, as your friend. 

MORGAN: Respectfully, here's my response. I cannot buy in the United States of America a Kinder Surprise chocolate egg, they're banned. They're banned on safety grounds because the little toys inside them might choke people. A British prime minister, I won't say which one, but one in the last few years, told me he was stopped at LAX because he had some for his nieces and they confiscated them because they were a health hazard. Now, I simply say, you're a country of many freedoms and many regulations. How about regulating guns in the way you do Kinder surprise chocolate eggs?

WATTERS: With respect, do forks make people fat? 

MORGAN: Yeah. 

WATTERS: Okay. No. 

MORGAN: Well they do, don't they? 

WATTERS: Guns don't kill people, people kill people. 

MORGAN: They do.

WATTERS: Forks don't make you fat.
