Ted Nugent Tells Piers Morgan: ‘Would You Leave Us The Hell Alone?’ [Video]

Ted Nugent A Major Advocate For Gun Rights In The U.S.

Ted Nugent is no stranger to TV news shows, and we saw plenty of him during the presidential race. Now he is back with his opinion on gun control and the issue of gun safety in America as it was shown on Piers Morgans’s show on CNN.

The gun debate is sure a heated topic of debate in the US at this point, and Ted Nugent the country singer has been a vocal individual in politics, so it comes as no surprise that he would add his own two cents to the topic.

Ted got into a somewhat of a heated debate with Piers and criticized him for focusing so much on the gun safety issue and that he seems to have an obsession with the issue.

According to the Huffington Post, after a long point-counter point debate with Piers Morgan, Ted Nugent was irritated and had the following to say:

“99.99% of the gun owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. Perfectly safe. Perfectly harmless. Wonderful, loving, generous, giving, caring people. Would you leave us the hell alone? Go after the nut jobs, go after the murderers, because I don’t know any. We need to lock up the bad guys and when people show dangerous, murderous intent, which everyone one of these mass-murderers showed.”

Looking at recent events in our country, it can be seen that a debate about gun ownership and control is needed, but both sides are extremely emotionally driven, and it is hard to have a logical and meaningful debate about the issue.

For Ted Nugent guns are not the issue, he focuses the blame on the “moral decay” of society. What do you think?

    Since when has Ted Nugent ever been a "country singer"?! Someone needs to get it together here, do a liitle research, and try again. I guess they'll let anyone write for The Inquisitr.

    After all of this ridiculous "debate" I have actually realized one thing, "shall not be infringed", and guess what? It already has been which means we have already tried to compromise and yet they just take more and more. I say we start fighting to take back our compromises all together! Right in front of you is what happens when you try and compromise on things that never should be touched. It is only 2nd to freedom of speech which everyone is obviously enjoying. There is a reason it is so high on the list.
