(HUFFINGTONPOST) — Piers Morgan concluded his final CNN show Friday night by delivering one last blow against America’s gun violence epidemic.

The “Piers Morgan Live” host praised the U.S. as “a land of true opportunity,” adding, “The vast majority of Americans I’ve met are decent, hardworking, thoroughly dependable people.”

But he went on to say that an estimated 100,000 Americans per year are hit by gunfire, and argued, “I am so pro-American, I want more of you to stay alive.”
