After three years, two months and 11 days, Piers Morgan hosted his final nightly CNN show tonight. Morgan, who took over the 9pmET hour from Larry King in 2011, is expected back to host specials and other coverage for the network. He reserved his final few minutes for a topic he’s devoted many of his 1,000 episodes to: gun control.

“I’ve made my point. I’ve given it a tremendous whack,” said Morgan. “Now it’s down to you. It is your country. These are your gun laws. And the senseless slaughter will only end when enough Americans stand together and cry, enough.”

Morgan ended with: “God bless America, and while I’m at it, God bless Great Britain, too.” WATCH:
