After the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 59 dead and at least 527 more injured, the debate about gun control reignited once more.

And for Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, it got him thinking about things that are banned in the United States that aren't semi-automatic weapons.

And number one on his list: Kinder eggs

According to Metro, more than 60,000 of the chocolate eggs were seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in 2011 alone.
