CNN has canceled “Piers Morgan Live”, and in his final remarks, the veteran talk show host condemned civilian firearms possession for the final time.
Morgan said he was departing from his platform to spend more time with his cricket bat, and after stating that “more guns doesn’t mean less crime as the National Rifle Association repeatedly says,” he implored Americans to “stand together and cry: Enough!”
“Guns belong on a military battlefield, in the hands of highly trained men and women fighting for democracy and freedom. Not in the hands of civilians. The surge of gun violence is a disease that now infects every aspect of American life. Each day, on average, 35 people in this country are murdered with guns, another 50 kill themselves with guns, and 200 more are shot but survive. That’s 100,000 people a year hit by gunfire in America.”
Morgan was the host of “Piers Morgan Live” for 3 years, 2 months and 11 days, and before signing off for the last time he gave a final blessing to America, and Great Britain too.
