TED NUGENT Talks NRA, OBAMA And PIERS MORGAN In New Video Interview
- Jan. 18, 2013
Legendary rocker Ted Nugent, who is an avid supporter of gun rights and antagonist of President Barack Obama, was interviewed by Guns.com at the 2013 SHOT Show, which took place January 15-18, 2013 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas. Nugent spoke about the NRA, Obama and Piers Morgan, among other topics. You can now watch the chat below
Nugent recently wrote an open letter to Vice President Joe Biden, offering his advice and suggestions on how to focus on the mental health care system to stop potentially violent citizens from acting out crimes.
In the letter, which was posted on The Washington Times web site, Nugent wrote, in part, "In almost every instance of mass killing, there were ample red flags and warning alarms that either were avoided or were not acted upon by mental health professionals, family members, friends and acquaintances. While I deeply respect an individual's privacy and civil liberties, the American people need basic awareness of what indicators to look for regarding potentially violent, psychotic people. Our collective safety begins with being collectively vigilant."
Nugent added, "I don't encourage you to recommend a ban on any weapon, magazine capacity or type of ammunition. That won't accomplish anything other than prevent the 99.9 percent of responsible, law-abiding Americans from enjoying these modern weapons as we do now.
"We should never recommend or develop public policy that restricts the rights of the good guys based upon what evil people do or might do. If that were the case, alcohol still would be banned. As you may know, drunk drivers kill an estimated 12,000 Americans each year and hurt tens of thousands more."
