I don't particularly care what Nugent thinks. A big enough check and I'm sure he'd say anything he was paid to say.
He's repeatedly said in both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns that he won't sign any new gun control laws.
I do not believe we need new legislation. I do not support any new legislation of an assault weapon ban nature, including that against semiautomatic weapons. We have laws in place that, if they’re implemented & enforced, will provide the protection and the safety of the American people. I do support the right of individuals to bear arms, whether for hunting purposes or for protection purposes or any other reasons. That’s the right that people have.
