Rockstar Ted Nugent is weighing in on the 2020 Presidential election and voicing his concerns about Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris. The musician and avid hunter says that he believes Biden and Harris are “coming to take your guns.”
During an interview with Breitbart, the Michigan native explains that he feels that many on the left side of the political aisle hope to abolish the 2nd Amendment.
“Everybody who is paying attention knows that the left will gut the Bill of Rights to the Constitution,” Ted Nugent said. “Actually, not gut it but just eliminate it completely. In their own words, they are coming to take your guns. Beto O’Rourke, Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris — everybody knows that they want to disarm their subjects.”
Ted Nugent on the ‘Powerful Conservative Voting Army’
Despite his concerns, the 71-year-old guitarist feels confident that many outdoors lovers in his home state will speak out at the polls.
“The most powerful conservative voting army can be identified as licensed hunting families, and we have seen a re-engagement that glows positive,” Nugent said in the Breitbart interview.
While potentially large in numbers, Nugent says the “conservative voting army” has been guilty of complacency in past elections.
“That conservative army, way too many of them, have been sitting it out,” he said. “And that non-participation has rolled out the welcome mat for the tyrants and the Marxists. But we are turning that around right now.”
In conclusion, the “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker reveals that he believes many other hunters and outdoorsmen like him feel the same way in regards to these political issues.
“When I speak about hunters, this is not just a guitar player’s hunch. This is a direct representation of the pulse, the beliefs, the heart, and soul of salt-of-the-earth America,” he tells Breitbart.
This marks one of several times Nugent voiced his political views in recent weeks. Most recently, he got into a back-and-forth social media battle with Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. Earlier this month, Lee vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump wins the 2020 election. Nugent had some thoughts on the situation, learn more here.
