Live from Waco, Texas, Ted Nugent appeared on CNN with Erin Burnett Thursday night to discuss the latest gun control legislation that passed its first hurdle in the Senate earlier in the day. While he agreed with some of the principles in the bill when it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill, the gun rights advocate and rocker called it a “feel-good measure” and said he “doesn’t trust the government” to handle the task.
“I don’t support the bill,” Nugent told Burnett at the top of their interview. “I reject it out of hand as a feel-good measure that’s not going to accomplish anything. It won’t stop any shootings, that’s for sure.”
