CNN’s Piers Morgan again called for more gun control after news broke this afternoon about another shooting – this time at a school in Connecticut.

According to state officials over a dozen people were killed at an elementary school in Newtown Connecticut, including children.

“Another day, another horrific shooting,” Morgan wrote on Twitter.  “America’s gun culture has to change.”

“When will America deal with its gun madness?” Morgan asked, referring to the multiple shootings occurring within the United States this year.

As gun rights activists began criticizing him on Twitter, Morgan began taunting them. “Any moment now, a gun nut will tweet me saying ‘If all the kids in that school had been armed, the shooters would have been stopped…’” he wrote.

After Morgan was notified that White House Press Secretary said that now wasn’t the time to talk about gun control he countered the argument.

“White House spokesman Jay Carney’s right – today’s not the day to debate gun control. YESTERDAY was the day to debate it,” he wrote.

Earlier this year, Morgan defended NBC sportscaster for questioning America’s gun culture and called for more gun control after the Aurora theater shooting in Colorado.
