Ted Nugent says to kiss his ass and suck on his machine gun

Pin it

The Motor City Madman himself, Ted Nugent, spoke with Piers Morgan on Wednesday's Piers Morgan Tonight (who thought they would actually be missing Larry King?), and the vociferous Second Amendment champion and all-around gun nut was in top "Uncle Ted" form. Engaging in a mini-Revolutionary War of words with the laid-back Morgan, Nugent pontificated on various topics, but most especially his pet cause.

Nugent defiantly told Morgan:

"Anybody that wants to disarm me can drop dead. Anybody that wants to make me unarmed and helpless, people that want to literally create the proven places where more innocents are killed called gun-free zones, we're going to beat you. We're going to vote you out of office or suck on my machine gun."

Whether or not you think he's overzealous when it comes to his views on hunting and gun ownership, you definitely want Nuge on your side if we're ever attacked by an army of mutant elk.

Responding to Morgan citing the fact that eighty people die from gunshot wounds each day in the U.S., Nugent made the case that

"seventy-eight of those eighty are let out of their cages by corrupt judges and prosecutors who know the recidivism is out of control, know that they'll commit the crimes again, and they let them walk through plea bargaining, early release, and programs. Kiss my ass. Where you have the most armed citizens in America, you have the lowest violent crime rate. Where you have the worst gun control, you have the highest crime rate. More guns equals less crime. Period."

The gun issue may never go away, because guns can't be uninvented, we do need them, and people will always misuse them. But perhaps taking out Bambi with a machine gun is a tad excessive.
