Ted Nugent and political commentator Piers Morgan went at it on live national television over gun control and it wasn’t pretty.
In response to a question by Morgan, Nugent said,
“Because I’ve learned that freedom is not free. And I’ve found that the reason the whole world sucks and America sucks less is because the United States constitution and the bill of rights outlines an experiment where freedom rules of individuality and that that can only be secured through crushing hose enemies that would take it away.”
Nugent said that anyone who tries to take away our freedom of individuality is the enemy and praised soldiers who put their lives on the line to protect those freedoms. Morgan responded to Nugent’s comments by goading him in arguing that despite his protestations of patriotism his comments were disrespectful to the President.
“Well let me put it in official CNN Piers Morgan interview terms, shall I?! My limey friend. Anybody that wants to 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 gonna beat you!!”
Pretty strong words right here!
“Well as much as I would like to suck on your machine gun the point the whole point of the defense is that a lot of people do drop dead precisely because you are armed to the t and you’d like everybody to be.”
Nugent wasn’t having any of that saying what Morgan said was not true what so ever. He argued quite vociferously that 99% of those killed from gun violence are perpetrated by those who were released from prison early by corrupt judges who understand the impact of recidivism. Ending by telling Morgan to, “KISS MY A**”
We certainly know how he feels!
