Morgan asked for U.S. citizens to take action on gun control, but said he respects Americans and quoted his brother, a colonel in the Royal British Army, who said, “You always want an American next to you in a trench when the going gets tough.”
“But that’s where I think guns belong, on a military battlefield” Morgan said. “Not in the hands of civilians.”
“The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly [sic] silence even when 20 children are blown away in their classrooms," he added.
“I’m so pro-American I want more of you to stay alive,” he finished.
Morgan said he "loved every minute" of his show on CNN.
"Well, almost every minute of it."
