After 3 years, Piers Morgan signed off from his low rated show with a parting shot at the NRA.
“I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theater, and then, just a few months later, 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, the absurd gun laws in this country would change,” he said. “But nothing has happened. The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence. Even when 20 young children are blown away in their classrooms. This is a shameful situation that has made me very angry.” He continued to rail and wrapped it with this: “But I’ve made my point. … Now it’s down to you. It’s your country; these are your gun laws. And the senseless slaughter will only end when enough Americans stand together and cry: Enough!”
Morgan ended his show with “Goodnight, thank you, and God bless America. Oh, and while I’m at it, God bless Great Britain too.”
CNN will continue experimenting on air with possible replacements.
