In case you missed it, earlier this week gun advocate Ted Nugent appeared CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight to defend gun ownership in the U.S. He is frustrated that gun owners are made out to be criminals.

Nugent says, "99.99% of the gun owners of America are wonderful people... Perfectly safe. Perfectly harmless. Wonderful, loving, generous, giving, caring people. Would you leave us the hell alone? Go after the nut jobs, go after the murderers, because I don't know any. We need to lock up the bad guys and when people show dangerous, murderous intent, which every one of these mass murderers showed -- all their neighbors, their family, their teachers, their fellow students, they all knew they were crazy but, Piers, we didn't stop them because we're worried about hurting their feelings. We have a madman problem in America... let's focus on that and leave the rest of us alone."

Nugent also took Morgan to a firing range where the talk-show host fired a semi-automatic assault rifle and said, "It was an exciting experience."
