Second-Amendment champion and rocker Ted Nugent expressed outrage at the shootings outside New York’s iconic Empire State Building on Friday, but pointed to the tragedy as a failure of gun control.

Money quote:

“Everybody dead in Aurora was unarmed and helpless. Everybody dead in Milwaukee was unarmed and helpless. Everyone dead at Virginia Tech was unarmed and helpless,” Nugent told Newsmax in an earlier interview this month. “How dare the president or Nancy Pelosi, or Bloomberg want more of that?”

ICYMI, here is the Nuge telling Piers Morgan a thing or two about gun control’s inefficacy:

    Current reports are that all of the people shot in NY were hit by bullets from the policemen who took the guy down.

    They really need to either train their cops better or they need to get more private citizens carrying guns… preferably both.

    Piers comes off as a nit picking sh-thead.
    Nugent on the other hand was both honest and forthright.

    The cops shot all but the original victim. As usual.
