Rock legend and gun advocate, Ted Nugent appeared with Piers Morgan on location in a Texas gun shop, Monday to talk guns.
He called Morgan the “poster boy for causes that make no sense”, and also blasted him over his apparent “obsession with guns” and told him to leave responsible American gun owners “the hell alone.”
Morgan began the interview by asking his guest to explain to him, “in the least inflammatory way possible,” why any American needs to own an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Morgan had just gotten done shooting an AR-15 at a gun range and said he was surprised by the power it possessed.
After first offering prayers to the Chris Kyle and Littlefield families, Nugent told Morgan to “take it to the bank” that he would never understand the true purpose of firearms.
“You don’t understand that 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,” Nugent said.
Morgan countered by saying 100,000 Americans get hit by gunfire each year.
“Let me stop you there, because I’ve been hearing you say this and you’re so full of crap. Listen to me, that statistic includes bad guys shot by cops and intruders shot by homeowners. So that figure is bogus,” Nugent shot back.
It can honestly be said that Huge Nuge dominated that interview.
The icing on the cake? Check out the armed security with “assault rifles” standing outside the gun shop, who were reportedly hired by CNN to protect Piers Morgan.
