Piers Morgan vs. Ted Nugent On Gun Control
NUGENT: Do you care about murders or do you only care about murders with guns?
MORGAN: I care about all death.
NUGENT: I don't think you do. I think you care about guns. I think you're obsessed with guns. Ninety nine point nine percent of the gun owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today, perfectly safe, perfectly harmless, wonderful, loving, giving, generous, 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 -- all their neighbors, their family, their teachers, their fellow students, they all knew they were crazy.
But, Piers, we didn't stop them because we're worried about hurting their feelings. We have a mad man problem in America, where they're running around. We have a felony recidivism problem in America. Let's focus on that together and leave the rest of us alone.
MORGAN: Ted, A, I won't leave you alone because there's a debate that has to be had in America.
NUGENT: We appreciate that. Because you're the perfect poster boy to needs to stand up for things that make no sense at all to common sense people.
