Nugent is an avid gun fan who has long been open about his ownership of firearms. He has also insisted that guns have a place in American society because statistics allegedly prove crime rates are lower in areas where residents are armed.
He told CNN host Piers Morgan in a 2011 interview: "Anybody that wants 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 going to beat you. We’re going to vote you out of office or suck on my machine gun."
But when Morgan told him that 80 people across America die each day from a gunshot wound, Nugent fired back: "78 of those 80 are let out of their cages by corrupt judges and prosecutors who know the recidivism is out of control, know that they'll commit the crimes again, and they let them walk through plea bargaining, early release, and programs. Kiss my ass. Where you have the most armed citizens in America, you have the lowest violent crime rate. Where you have the worst gun control, you have the highest crime rate… More guns equals less crime. Period."
