Piers Morgan concluded his final broadcast of Piers Morgan Live on Friday by addressing a topic that has become synonymous with this British TV personality:

Gun control.

The anchor famously went off on a pro-gun panel after a Naval Yard shooting in September.

And, even more famously following the tragedy in Newtown in December 2012, asked "how many more kids have to die?" before America adopts similar gun laws to those of other first world nations.

Here's a look at what Morgan had to say to wrap up his show last night:

CNN is pulling the plug on Piers Morgan. Low ratings, not any particular scandal or incident, doomed the former UK tabloid editor's show after three years.

Morgan was told by CNN president Jeff Zucker it “was time for the show to end," but not because of the phone-hacking allegations surfacing in Britain.

“The decision had nothing to do with the hacking interview - not at all,” said CNN’s Allison Gollust, who denied the move was due to anything but ratings.

Morgan lost his job at the celebrity news tabloid The Daily Mirror after publishing fake pictures of alleged British troop misconduct in Iraq, but bounced back.

He'd built a reputation for campaigns on gun control while at CNN but was blamed for a steady slide in the show’s ratings since Larry King’s retirement.

“It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” Morgan told the N.Y. Times, which first broke news of the CNN decision Sunday.

CNN's Piers Morgan says he's getting sick and tired of having the same “ridiculous debate” on gun violence every single time there is a mass shooting,

He made that abundantly clear last night.

Piers absolutely unloaded on conservative radio host Ben Ferguson and gun rights activist John Lott during a heated argument over gun control:

Ferguson, following the Navy Yard shooting, said this was a gun-free zone, so gun control was “a failure in this base with all the best security in the world.”

Morgan countered that the bigger failure is the “failure to do anything” by the elected officials in the U.S. in the wake of countless tragic shootings.

We somehow doubt Ted Nugent will be buying a copy, but Piers Morgan announced today that he is penning a tell-all that will be released in October.

The memoir will reportedly be titled "Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney" and will focus on his life as host at CNN.

Most recently, that life has centered on Morgan debating the issue of gun control with such conservatives as Nugent, Alex Jones, most memorably, Larry Pratt.

Ted Nugent. Piers Morgan.

The gloves came off again in a debate on gun control this week, and whichever side you're on, it's hard to deny that these two squaring off makes for quality TV.

Piers and Ted sat down in Texas, where Morgan visited a gun range and tried out a rifle similar to the one used by Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook massacre.

While admittedly "exciting," Piers cited his experience with the weapon - easy to use, fairly accurate - as justification for an assault weapons ban.

Neither Chelsea Handler nor Piers Morgan are known to hold back, so when the former interviewed the latter Wednesday, the wisecracks flew a mile a minute.

As soon as Morgan, 47, sat down on Chelsea Lately, she asked, "What are you looking at?"

His reply, "Well, you either had plastic surgery or a makeover, 'cause you look really hot today."

That "compliment" drew a typical response from Handler, 37: "Oh, you're so annoying."

"You're so obnoxious. You wonder why everybody hates you! I specifically covered up so you couldn't look at me and undress me with your molester eyes!"

In an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan last night, Charlie Sheen said he favors stricter gun laws despite being a former weapons enthusiast and "collector."

His reason? "Because we're not supposed to bury our children," the actor said.

Referencing the Newtown, Conn., shooting the Anger Management star said:

"If anybody from the NRA wants to look any of those parents in the eyes from that school and tell them that guns are still necessary, then I urge them to, and see how that goes."

Despite more than 100,000 virtual signatures demanding it, the U.S. government has denied a petition from gun advocates to deport CNN host Piers Morgan.

The petition started in response to British-born Piers Morgan's gun control rant was posted to the White House's We the People forum last month.

Morgan has been even more outspoken than usual in the aftermath of the massacre that killed 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Earlier this week, he clashed it Alex Jones in an epic interview ... or whatever that was. Bottom line, people petitioned to throw him out of the U.S.

The Obama administration responds to any petition with 25,000 signatures, and therefore, issued a statement on Morgan and his 1st Amendment rights.

Conservative radio host Alex Jones, one of the men behind the White House petition to deport Piers Morgan, squared off with him on CNN last night.

It got heated. Fast.

Morgan's anti-gun stance has been vocalized often and pointedly since the Newtown, Conn., shooting last month, and pro-gun Jones came out swinging.

The much hyped debate wasn’t much of a debate, as few questions were asked or answered. Instead, Jones pretty much exploded two minutes in.

“I’m here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! It doesn’t matter how many lemmings you have out there on the street begging for them to have their guns taken."

"We will not relinquish them. Do you understand?” he said.

No need to threaten to deport Piers Morgan over his anti-gun views, America. If things don't change before long, the CNN anchor will be happy to see himself out.

Piers Picture

The UK native has been on a rampage of his own since Adam Lanza killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

His anti-gun rhetoric has gotten almost vitriolic more than once, and 90,000 people signed a petition to deport Morgan for his anti-2nd Amendment views.

The 1st Amendment clearly protects his right to criticize the 2nd, of course, so he's not going anywhere (not that all Brits necessarily want him back).

In a new column for The Daily Mail, Morgan argued against those who have said the Sandy Hook tragedy calls for more armed guards in schools, and more guns.
