Ted Nugent Blasts Piers Morgan, Defends Gun Owners: 'Would You Leave Us The Hell Alone?'

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/05/ted-nugent-piers-morgan-gun-control_n_2621920.html

Ted Nugent got fired up while discussing gun control and gun ownership with Piers Morgan and pointedly asked the CNN host: "Would you leave us the hell alone?"

Morgan headed to Texas, where he met with the Detroit rocker and unabashed gun advocate for a sit-down at a local gun range. What materialized was an explosive interview in which Nugent accused Morgan of having an obsession with guns.

In the interview, which aired Monday, Morgan asked Nugent why anyone needs an assault weapon, to which Nugent replied that massacres are anomalies.

"It's a simple inanimate tool that tens of millions of American families own, that have never caused a problem, never had an accident and will never commit a crime," said the rocker, who previously has suggested he is ready for an armed revolt if the government were to attempt to take away his firearms. "You have the aberrations that are such a minute percentage."

1. Um, no.

We can't leave you the hell alone. Not as long as someone as batshit crazy as you can get a firearm.

5. I wish both of them would STFU. Complicated Issue. Passionate Discussion. Heated Debate.

Go back to the garage and play your guitar, Ted.

and Piers can go back to the UK for all I care.

8. This.

You end up wanting to tell them "Hush, you two! The grown-ups are trying to get this figured out."

9. I think Ted Nugent is a "simple, inanimate tool".

And I'm pro-RKBA.

11. I agree

No talent, shit stained, pedophile, poacher, draft dodger.... the quick judgment.
What passes for interview material these days would make a cat laugh.

12. Ted Nugent's opinion on guns is about as relevant as Stephen King.

Which is to say, not at all.

(Well, Nugent is .00001% more relevant as a member of the NRA's board, but they are working hard to extend that percentage deeper into irrelevance)
