Ted Nugent: Obama, 'America-hating' liberal 'goons' close to taking guns

In an email announcing the giveaway of an AR-15 rifle, rocker Ted Nugent warned that President Obama and his allies on the left are working to take guns and nullify the Second Amendment, WND reported Monday.

“Barack Obama and his radical America-hating leftist goons are perilously close to taking away our guns and nullifying the Second Amendment,” he said in an email addressed to "Real Americans."

"We all better wake up and fight back together before it’s too late! And I need you to join me — so I’m willing to give you some incentive," he added. "How would you like a brand new AR-15 for free?”

Nugent then named those he said are working to strip Americans of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

“Barack Obama, Michael Bloomberg, Dianne Feinstein, and John Hickenlooper want nothing more than to ban the AR-15 rifle — and all of our guns," he said. "Thankfully, there are a few Second Amendment champions left, like Tom Tancredo, who we can count on to the lead the fight to protect our guns and all of our constitutional liberties.”

“We can’t let the clowns in some ‘we the sheeple’ governor’s mansions and in the White House succeed in shredding our constitution and take away our guns,” he added.

Tancredo, a former GOP congressman from Colorado who is running for governor, echoed Nugent’s sentiments about the anti-gun left.

“If they succeed, we’ll all be stuck with sippy-cups and water-pistols,” he said.

Those who oppose freedom, he added, don't need to enter the contest.

“If you’re against freedom or don’t want it, then don’t enter the contest,” he added.

Nugent also praised Tancredo for "vehemently opposing President Bush's wasteful spending spree, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and of course, insane infringements to our sacred Second Amendment rights."

"Mark my words," he promised, "we'll keep our guns if Tom wins this race."

Those who wish to participate in the contest only have a few days left to enter. The contest ends on Friday, March 21.

Recently, Nugent caused a stir when he called Obama a "subhuman mongrel." He apologized for the comment after criticism by a number of Republicans, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.

But Tancredo says he has no problems with Nugent's support, saying the outspoken rocker and NRA board member gives him the ability to say, "I wouldn’t go that far."

Tancredo is one of seven Republicans hoping to unseat Democrat John Hickenlooper.
